Drop the Money Bomb on Monsanto! #California #activism

ryking:

Drop the Money Bomb on Monsanto!

Between May 1 and May 26, a broad coalition of food, farm, health, public interest, and environmental groups all over the country, joined by leading organic food companies, will attempt to raise one million dollars to support the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, a citizens’ ballot initiative, and other state GMO-labeling campaigns.

If California is successful Monsanto would be forced to either spend extra money to have two types of packaging for all of its products (one for California with the GMO warning label and one for the rest of America without the label) or save money by simply updating all of its packaging to carry the warning. In other words: California’s law would benefit the entire country.

Boycott Monsanto AKA Most Evil Corporation of 2010

So… By ‘boycott’, you mean ‘starve’.

God dammit…

Lean Cuisine.

Lean Cuisine.

I’M NOT GIVING THAT UP, DAMMIT.

Why would I do that?

Cool aid is spelt with a “K” not a c. and How the heck you expect me to give up a capri sun, shit i grew up that and i am not never going to give that up.

I will fight for my pringles!

Nice to see the Tumblr community supporting a corporation that puts lethal chemicals in their product and feeds uranium to pregnant women.  Nice going guys.

>implying that Monsanto actually owns any, let alone all, of these corporations and brands

Ahahahahahahahahaha wow no. 0/10, Tumblr.

It’s a list of companies that make stuff to make money and to survive, and you want us to starve, dehydrate, and/or die because you don’t like what they do or who they might be owned by?

My middle fingers now point toward your direction, sir.

Could you be more ignorant?

Yes, I would like people to boycott Monsanto because they dumped tons of waste into the UK, knowingly dumped lethal chemicals into lakes in Alabama for over 40 years and put agent orange into their products, a chemical the causes cancer, death and severe birth defects. How about you read about Monsanto’s history. 

No you won’t starve for avoiding these products.

The US government, Canada, Indonesia, France, and the U.S. Justice Department have investigated and filed suit against Monsanto. They’ve been sued for pollution, selling harmful products, false advertising, bribrary of government officials, genetically modifying seeds for personal gain and putting illegal chemicals into their products that are both harmful for their animals and the humans who digest it.

How about you read about Monsanto’s dark history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsanto#Criticisms

we don’t starve if we go back and buy in our region: fresh and healthy food or from your garden. you can make by yourself, juices from your own veg & fruits / or buy from your nearby farmer… etc., not much to say here… only that, to live healthier you have to make compromises: *my is to be a Vegetarian [since more than 10 yrs.] ~ food corps don’t like that. they love their costumers as a meat eating in sugar and fat rolling individual.

We are sorry to inform you that your services will no longer be needed. Your positions have been “terminated” until further notice (forever). It has been determined that God/Spirit/Nature,etc.,pp. made everything perfect the first time and no redos are necessary. You will have to find other employment that does not poison the earth’s citizens. There are many other professions with integrity that might interest you: farming, teaching, janitorial services, etc. Your former profession is no longer acceptable on any terms.

Monsanto Wins Lawsuit While Food Justice Advocates ‘Occupy’ Food System

Monsanto Wins Lawsuit While Food Justice Advocates ‘Occupy’ Food System

On a day that ‘Occupy’ groups, environmental and food justice organizations have called for a global day of action to resist corporate control of the food system, news comes that a federal judge has ruled in favor of seed giant Monsanto Co. in a lawsuit filed on behalf of 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations challenging the company’s seed patents.

Probably one of the best arguments against capitalism is in Monsanto’s treatment of farmers through their gene patents. The implications are terrifying.

occupyonline:

Little did Willie Nelson know when he recorded “Crazy” years ago just how crazy it would become for our cherished family farmers in America. Nelson, President of Farm Aid, has recently called for the national Occupy movement to declare an “Occupy the Food System” action.

Nelson states, “Corporate control of our food system has led to the loss of millions of family farmers, destruction of our soil…”

Hundreds of citizens… joined Occupy the Food System groups, ie Food Democracy Now, gathered outside the Federal Courts in Manhattan on January 31st, to support organic family farmers in their landmark lawsuit against Big Agribusiness giant Monsanto…

The lawsuit addresses the bizarre and shocking issue of Monsanto harassing and threatening organic farmers with lawsuits of “patent infringement” if any organic farmer ends up with any trace amount of GM seeds on their organic farmland.

It has been a truly rough week for Monsanto. After being slammed with a lawsuit by concerned farmers over their GMO crops and thrown out by China, now the corrupt juggernaut is being thrown out of the United Kingdom. In an unprecedented announcement, Monsanto announced a major departure from the UK due to “intense opposition” to genetically modified foods from activists.

As a result, the company is now closing its genetically modified wheat growing operation based in Cambridge. Monsanto officials even went on record stating that the move was a result of opposition against their own ‘Frankenstein Foods’.

Furthermore, the company is even looking to liquidate their GMO crop facilities based in Germany, France, and the Czech Republic. Monsanto is making a run for it, and food good reason. Nations have been openly voicing their opposition against the biotech mammoth, with officials and individuals nationwide taking a stand. France is one of many nations to call out Monsanto’s crimes, citing health concerns among the many reasons to reject Monsanto’s GMO crops.

Monsanto Thrown Out Across the Globe

India has also joined the conglomerate of nations directly opposed to the agricultural corruption brought upon by bloated biotechnology giant Monsanto, declaring legal action against the corporation for a crime dubbed ‘biopiracy‘. Peru even went as far as to pass a monumental 10 year ban on genetically modified foods.

It seems that the United States officials are among the few who still swear allegiance to

Monsanto, even allowing their genetically engineered hormone RBGH to run rampant in the U.S. despite being banned in 27 nations. Shockingly, the synthetic hormone (RBGH) is actually created using molecules and DNA sequences that are a result of molecular cloning. Are U.S. officials truly convinced that Monsanto’s GMO crops are truly safe, or does it have to do with the fact that many Monsanto employees are at the heart of the U.S. government?

The message went up on Pastebin Monday, confirming Anonymous had targeted the Bivings Group, responsible for handling Monsanto’s PR.

Did you know…

Since 1996 Americans have been eating genetically modified (GM) ingredients in most processed foods.

GM plants, such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, and canola, have had foreign genes forced into their DNA. The inserted genes come from species, such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine states, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. They ask physicians to advise patients to avoid GM foods.

Why isn’t the FDA protecting us?

In 1992, the Food and Drug Administration claimed they had no information showing that GM foods were substantially different from conventionally grown foods. Therefore they are safe to eat, and absolutely no safety studies were required. But internal memos made public by a lawsuit2 reveal that their position was staged by political appointees who were under orders from the White House to promote GMOs. In addition, the FDA official in charge of creating this policy was Michael Taylor, the former attorney for Monsanto, the largest biotech company, and later their vice president.

In reality, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored.

Today, the same biotech companies who have been found guilty of hiding toxic effects of their chemical products are in charge of determining whether their GM foods are safe. Industry-funded GMO safety studies are too superficial to find most of the potential dangers, and their voluntary consultations with the FDA are widely criticized as a meaningless façade.


In 2003 the #GM trials will came to an end in the #UK. Due to the dominance of the GM gene it is likely that it will destroy the farming industry in the UK as we know it. There are many people opposed to GM cultivation - Hector Christie is one of these people. “Roots” is a film which shares Hector’s outspoken political views on the state of our countryside and the love for his land and animals.
