labelityourself 250x156 Grassroots: After GMO Labeling Shot Down, Citizens Start Labeling ThemselvesActivists and concerned citizens around the world have had enough with corrupt corporations censoring their right to know what’s in their food, and frankly they’re beyond upset. And if the government will not side with the 90 plus percentage of consumers who are in favor of GMO labeling, then they’re going to do it themselves.

As it turns out, many are doing just that through the ‘DIY’ GMO labeling campaign known as ‘The Label It Yourself Campaign’. Sporting a skull with cornstalks for crossbones, the DIY labels inform customers as to whether or not a product ‘may’ include GMO ingredients or most certainly does.

Below is one label taken from the campaign website that activists are now placing on products found in grocery stores, homes of friends and family (to incite discussion), and just about everywhere else:

People Will Not Stand for Corporate Food Lies Any Longer


With 80% or more of many staple crops like corn and soybeans already genetically modified, there is a large chance that most products containing these ingredients (or deriviatives) does indeed contain GMOs. Even more so for highly processed high-fructose corn syrup and other harmful ingredients which are arguably modified 100% of the time. You can print out the labels from the campaign website and stick them on products for yourself.

With a lack of real GMO labeling thanks to dirty tricks by pro-GMO groups like No on 37, grassroots initiatives are the only methods of alerting the public to what they are putting into their mouths. Pro-GMO campaigns have impersonated and illegally used the FDA seal, posed as phony cop and democrat groups, and poured more than $45 million into keeping consumers into the dark.

Now, citizens are fighting back through peaceful grassroots initiatives. As a picture from one Treehugger blog shows, consumers are honestly labeling processed foods across the shelves of international grocers:

As for the legal aspect? The Label It Yourself Campaign states:

“At the moment, the law protects misinformation and private property above truth-telling, and public well-being…”

Meanwhile, corporations like Monsanto continue to pump out GMOs that have been time and time again linked to disease, environmental disaster, and even the center of ‘slave labor‘ issues. When government legislation is shot down through corruption, it becomes a grassroots responsibility to take action and make a real change.

    If you affect the bottom line they will have to change . Boycot the food with GMO create an arm of people who will do the same. walk the shopping malls and inform shopper of the food they are looking at buying. and the long term damage it will cause them.

  • lightningjoe

    So freaking WHAT? THEY are the ones who took down California's GMO-labeling initiative, and so made this issue one that the public themselves are having to handle any way they can.

    When the process of law no longer works, people have to do it themselves.

    The payback is appropriate and just.

    While I love the idea of GMO labeling, there are other ways, legal ways, to bring it about. I gave the LIY folks some ideas on how to help rather than get people arrested for product tampering here. http://www.goingveggie.com/post-prop-37-gmos-feed

    AND WHERE CAN WE GET THIS STICKERS?? /LABELS…

    You can avoid gmo foods when shopping by downloading the non gmo shopping guide here
    http://www.responsibletechnology.org/

  • dogitydog

    Hey Natural Society,

    Why are you preventing me from providing information on how to buy food without gmo's? This contradicts everything you supposedly stand for. Or does it? This demands some kind of explanation why you are doing this.

  • dogitydog

    I keep trying to post a comment and it will not post. When I re-try to post it, I get a duplicate error message. The comment has info on how to buy food that does not contain gmo's. It was in response to Chris who asked if there was a list available that identifies gmo and non gmo food. It will not let me post the info. What is going on here? Is this site actually screening and preventing that information from being posted?

  • Anonymous

    why are my comments not showing up?

  • dogitydog

    Chris, there are many websites with the information you seek. Here are a few of them. Spread the word.
    http://www.responsibletechnology.org/ http://www.organicconsumers.org/ http://www.NaturalNews.com http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/ http://seedsofdeception.com/non-gmo-education-cen
    There is also a source where you can buy food that has already been screened for gmo's. Here is the link: http://www.greenpolkadotbox.com/
    I hope this info helps.

  • dogitydog

    Chris,

    Yes there is a list of non-GMO products available. It is called 'THE NON GMO SHOPPING GUIDE'. Here is the link: http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/

    Also, everything that you want to know about the dangers of GMO's can be found here at these links:
    http://www.responsibletechnology.org/ http://www.NaturalNews.com http://www.organicconsumers.org/
    These sites also have shopping guides and/or links to them.

  • iami

    i think, therefore i am thinking of getting a tattoo of this label, no escape from corporatacracy. sorry folks.

    • http://INFORMATIONWARFAREBLOG.COM MAYNE

      Make sure the ink in the tattoo isn't GMO derived. That would be ironic.

    Al Smith, r u an anti-semitic idiot?

    • >_>

      User, is it really that hard to type "are you" instead of "r u"? I'm just saying that "texting grammar" makes you lose a lot of credibility. Not to mention it's just plain lazy. Come on, four extra letters dude. That's not hard to do.

      I am an antiemetic idiot

  • chris

    Is there a list anywhere of products by name/label that are known to have GMO's??

    How does one spot GMO based on the label or bar code or anything?

    I think we need a website that will always have up to date lists of all products containing GMO's..

    • chris

      http://www.heinzketchup.com/GrownNotMade.aspx

      You see the picture on this page with a "possible GMO" label being put on a bottle of ketchup.. Heinz I believe.

      Then I googled does Heinz have GMO's. I found the above page…

      So is Heinz lying?

      Is putting a label on a product that doesn't have GMO's could be grounds for a law suit?

      If I owned a can corn company and you put one of those labels on my product without knowing for sure even if you say MAY contain. I would press charges….

      So back to my list of known GMO's that are on our shelves in the USA… Is there such a list? Or is there a way to look at a can or label and determine it is GMO..

      Produce has a bar code and if it has a 8 in the code then its GMO..

        The website states their tomatoes have no GMOs but the ketchup ingredients contain both high fructose and regular corn syrup. I believe there is where the GMOs reside possibly , so they may be telling the truth, but not the WHOLE truth.

      • Richard W

        They only claim that their tomatoes are GMO-free.

        It's rather sadistic for them to claim "We won't put anything in our Ketchup that we wouldn't want our kids to have", as they proceed to dump genetically-modified corn syrup into it. Not only is the corn syrup terrible for you, but being GMO is a whole new dimension of poison.

        Sadistic, but they never claim that "our ketch-up is GMO-free". Only that their "tomatoes" are GMO-free.

      • ReflecT

        If GMOs are so great & '"safe", then why would GMO using manufacturers press charges if they see a label alerting consumers on their GMO containing product saying it "may" contain them? GMO "technology" is great to boast about; so those manufacturers should be proud that their products contain GMOs, not threatened or upset! Lol.

        Sometimes you need to take more aggressive/active measures to directly engage tyrants & it can be done legally through loopholes(just like those big greedy corporations do it!). Fire with fire.

      • adocann

        Heinz contains high fructose corn syrup and corn syrup both of which are most likely from genetically modified corn. So yes Heinz lies as do most other big food manufacturers.

    • dogitydog

      I have been trying to provide you with the information you are seeking Chris, but this website keeps blocking it. This is very disturbing.

    • Angie

      I suggest you watch the new documentary Genetic Roulette. After watching that movie, I came to discover, it would be alot less work to set up a website which lists the products that are non-GMO foods then to try to keep up with the 90% of products on our supermarket shelves that have GMO's in them.

  • Sandy Button

    This is a good idea but I can see someone getting arrested for vandalism or some such nonsense, maybe we can get the companies who are worthy of our purchases to label "Contains no GMOs".

  • http://www.consciouslyraw.com Madeline

    Truth in labeling all the way!

  • Lee-Anne Demore

    It's getting to the point we can't trust anything we eat anymore…from gmo, to floride, to arsenic in our rice and the list keeps going….it's discusting

  • http://www.MajorityVoice.org Al Smith

    Also, be sure to take your marker to WalMart to mark "RAT POISON" on their Baby Water with Fluroide. It seems that WalMart executives could walk over to the pest department and read the label on rat poison to see that its only active ingredient is sodium fluoride.

    While you're at it, likewise mark your kitchen faucet. The Khazarian Zionists (psychotic fake-Jew banksters) think it's really funny that they force us to perpetually pay them extortionist's rates to perpetually poison our drinking water with rat poison. It proves they really do think of Us as rats.

      They arent mainly Khazarian they are ashkeNAZI as well.

      Matter fact that is who funded and ran Nazi Germany all along……the ashkeNAZIs

      To say I am antisemitic is to say I am anti-arabic which I am not.
