The Mexican governtment is promoting foreign, genetically modified organism (GMOs) corn.
If GMOs enter Mexico, they could contaminate more than 1000 varieties of corn, killing the legacy of the Aztecs, Mayans, and other indigenous civilizations.
GMOs are banned in many countries due to their connection with causing problems, environmental damage and destroying diversity.
If Mexico lets GMOs destroy their milenary culture of native corn, the legacy of their ancient god Quetzalcoatl (Aztec) and Kukulkan (Mayan) will be lost.
