An influx of major transgenic soybean farms in Campeche, Mexico has had a devastating effect on the health of the local Mayan people, land, and their bees. Bees are our new canary in a coal mine when it comes to safety of a local environment, and the bees/birds are chirping in Campeche. Mayan activists Gustavo Huchin and Leydi Pech see the devastation the chemical-ridden soybean farms are creating, and decide to stand up to the Mexican authorities, Mennonite communities, and Monsanto to make a change.
