March Against Monsanto

On May 25, 2013  over 200,000 activists around the world will unite to

March Against Monsanto.

Be sure to partake in a city near you!!!

I will personally be joining the march in Los Angeles. We need to say NO TO GMO… and REQUIRE labeling of all genetically modified foods… humanity is not a science experiment!

monsantoWHY DO WE MARCH?

  • Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.

 

 

  • In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM products.
  • Recently, the U.S. Congress and president collectively passed the nicknamed “Monsanto Protection Act” that, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
  • For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and genetic makeup.
  • Monsanto’s GM seeds are harmful to the environment; for example, scientists have indicated they have contributed to Colony Collapse Disorder among the world’s bee population.
WHAT ARE SOLUTIONS WE ADVOCATE?
  • Voting with your dollar by buying organic and boycotting Monsanto-owned companies that use GMOs in their products.
  • Labeling of GMOs so that consumers can make those informed decisions easier.
  • Repealing relevant provisions of the US’s “Monsanto Protection Act.”
  • Calling for further scientific research on the health effects of GMOs.
  • Holding Monsanto executives and Monsanto-supporting politicians accountable through direct communication, grassroots journalism, social media, etc.
  • Continuing to inform the public about Monsanto’s secrets.
  • Taking to the streets to show the world and Monsanto that we won’t take these injustices quietly.

    Remember, your own city, county, town and state can BAN and totally refuse Monsanto
    and genetically engineered foods for good (bypassing the soft approach and already corrupted FDA and USDA). Mendocino County in CA completely banned and refused any GMO plants, food and animals in their own County. And Santa Cruz in WA has followed.
    We need to kick Monsanto out – town by town, city by city and not allow them to co-exist at all in your own local neighborhoods and adjacent to our pure food supplies, land and farms. WE need to kick them out completely. No compromise. It’s time.

      Thanks for the information. I was unaware that this was possible. Come May 25th, over 200,000+ people are participating… So there will be plenty of exposure and awareness being spread to those who are completely uninformed of the issue. Hopefully the marches will succeed in their goals and we will start seeing local governments taking action against Monsanto. We must get back to the basics! Go green and eat organic… Cherish your local farmers or grow your own food! It’s as good as printing money…
