Many citizens from Basel in Switzerland were disgusted when they heard that their city canton's government had selected Syngenta as the main sponsor of Basel's appearance at the 2015 World Fair in Milan. The multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation stands for toxic pesticides, genetically engineered seeds, patents on plants and industrial agriculture, a main culprit of global warming. Soon after the announcement, NGO alliance MultiWatch hosted a two-day conference; it also organized Basel's first 'March against Monsanto and Syngenta'. This book is a compilation of the team's findings after one year of watching Syngenta, and also includes contributions by Vandana Shiva and other guest authors supporting the campaigners. The bottom line is that there is no room for this multinational corporation in sustainable and ecological agriculture.
