Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

The article "What is the Monsanto Protection Act, and Why is it All Over Facebook?" by Anna Bewslaw, discusses how Monsanto genetically modify or genetically engineer their seeds to produce food. However, studies show that there are side effects to such production. Therefore, Monsanto's seeds contain herbicide, a chemical substance used to damage or inhabit the growth of plants, producing inorganic food.

What kind of communication approach do you use?
