This is a quite significant report since neoliberal farming policy in India, which Monsanto is central to, causes an estimated 17,000 farmer suicides a year. As this article points out, between 1995 & 2013, there were over 300,000 farmer suicides in India. That’s staggering. Neoliberal rural policy all over the world is one of the primary reasons for the exponential growth in urban slums, including in India, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Mexico, African & Latin American countries.
