March Against Monsanto Is The Beginning of The End For Monsanto

The grassroots March Against Monsanto movement is spreading across the nation, and the initiative spells out an increasingly massive number of activists and concerned citizens who will ultimately be responsible for ending the GMO juggernaut through peaceful protest and the spread of information.

It really comes down to the basic understanding that what we want is real food — not chemical-laden junk that is riddled with genetically modified organisms. And of course Monsanto is responsible for the majority of such junk, holding a monopoly over the GM seed market with 90% of staple crop seeds under Monsanto control. Seeds that are sold to ignorant farmers who oftentimes end up killing themselves after they find that the seeds produce decreased yields and milk the farmers financially dry through the enforceable patents that come along with the seeds. Patents that Monsanto goons carefully enforce, preying upon small farmers through devious lawsuits and farm stakeouts.

Even organic and natural farmers are subject to such legal attacks, since it’s possible for the patented seeds (which India calls biopiracy) to blow over to such farms and begin to grow. This is also how widespread GMO contamination begins, to which the USDA simply responds ‘get insurance’. We can even go back decades to find that Monsanto was integral in the creation of the infamous Agent Orange, a Vietnam-era chemical warfare weapon which estimates say killed or maimed around 400,000 people and caused a startling 500,000 birth defects.

But the days where this information could hide as footnotes within the media are over.

March Against Monsanto Is Just The Beginning

The March Against Monsanto, which is a worldwide movement encouraging everyone to start their own local get together (here’s the Google document with all the organization info for every area) in defiance of the GMO juggernaut, is generating massive success. And with this success and media coverage comes awareness, which is absolutely essential. It was back in 2011 that I declared Monsanto be the worst company of 2011 in what became a media blitz campaign to spread awareness. Ultimately, it even led to one of my articles becoming the most highly shared articles of that year — something that I am extremely grateful to readers for.

March Against Monsanto is a lot like that campaign, as it is simple, accessible, and absolutely making waves in the media. Just wait until several thousand protesters converge on major cities demanding that our politicians enact legislation to combat Monsanto — a company which has numerous employees and former employees stationed within government.

But what’s more? Whatever comes after the March Against Monsanto will likely be even larger and more open source. It will likely take what worked with the March Against Monsanto campaign, enhance it, and apply it to more than just Monsanto as well. This is how we get our voices heard, through massive awareness movements like this. I encourage everyone to checkout the Google document and get involved in your area. Be friendly, pass out some articles from NaturalSociety, and spread the word — personable individuals are the most effective in communicating a message of truth to others.

    Anthony has probably never been involved in farming. Farmers are not ingnorant!

    There are many adavanges to GMO seeds. The seeds are altered to make them taste bad to bugs And work with th weed killers better. (simple explaination to the higher eduacted) The production is a subtle difference on the front side. But if the bugs destroy your crops or you have to spray them 2 or 3 times more the small production decrease pays for itself. As you may or maynot know no-til planting is the way of the future. It saves our field from being washed away. If not for GMO we would not be able to no til our crops. And yes you do sign a contract when you buy the seed that you will not replant the seed. Mon. profrits would be wiped out in one year if they did not so this. For years we always kept our soybean and wheat seed to replant. Corn seed has always been treated with insecticide (way before GMO) For record I have worked for Monsanto and hated them. But I also farm and can have a opend mind on both sides. Before you Rah Rah a internet kid that has good intentions but very little back groung, do your own research. It may just educate you enough to see the big picture a little different.

      Stephen: You are a disgusting human being. If you don't value human life you are free to eat the poison from that evil company (Monsanto means: MySatan). I'm totally furious that the GMO poison has already come to Latin America. By the way, if you worked in some specific section of the company, somebody could have told you that their real objective is to depopulate the earth by poisoning as much people as possible. Monsanto is backed by a satanic sect called the illuminatis who, believe it or not, are implementing the plans of Lucifer on earth. And that my friend, is a FACT. Go ahead, google it. Just don't search in the mainstream media, because they only tell lies. Read only independent and ethical blogs, and find the horrifying truth, but do it before the Stellar project is complete, because after September the government will know anything and everything that anybody does in the internet.
      By the way, REAL consequences of the GMO crops:
      1. The farmer becomes an accomplice of a system that poisons people
      2. GMOs produce franken-pollen that contaminates natural crops
      3. GMO food messes with the natural balance of the organs of the body or can even cause you serious illnesses
      4. Genes of GMO foods will be assimilated by the microorganisms that naturally live in your digestive system, turning them into continuous producers of toxins and pesticides that your body will absorb !!!
      5. To make a GMO, you must disrupt something that essentially is food, and that could be turned into something that could not be food at all !!!!

      Sounds like you still work for them and this being 1984, hate is really love. So you love Monsanto and are wasting your effort trying to convince those of us who are totally aware of the terrible effects of GMO’s that there is some benefit to the un-natural freaks that the satanists at monsanto are bombarding us with. I really hope that you feed yourself and your children these frankenfoods and you don’t just plant them for others.

    DEADLINE TODAY:
    Another Monsanto Protection Act?
    Stop the King Amendment!

    Today, Wednesday, May 15, the House Agriculture Committee will vote on a proposed Farm Bill amendment that would stomp all over state and local rights to enact laws governing food safety.

    If passed, the King Amendment, brainchild of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), will take away states’ rights to pass regulations governing the production or manufacture of any agricultural product, including food and animals raised for food, that is intended for sale in interstate commerce. The language in the King Amendment is ambiguous. But analysts believe that Monsanto will use the amendment as legal ammunition to challenge any future state laws mandating labels on GMO-tainted food.

    We need your help today to stop this amendment and preserve state and local laws governing food safety. I'm contacting you because your Member of Congress is on the House Agriculture Committee. Please contact your Representative today and urge him or her to vote against the King amendment.

    Your message will have even more impact if you follow it up with a call to the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.

    Rep. King says his amendment is merely an effort to "reinforce the Commerce Clause," by asserting "that a state cannot deny the trade of an agricultural product from another state based on its means of production." But, who is he kidding? King's amendment isn't about protecting the Commerce Clause, it's about protecting industrial agriculture.

    We don’t need any more laws that protect industrial agriculture at the expense of our health, and the health of the environment.

    Please contact your Representative today. Thank you!

    And the start of Local initiatives on local ballots to refuse and BAN genetically engineered and GMO's planting of vegetables, crops and animals.
    Mendocino County in California did it. Santa Cruz in Washington state did it.
    Total refusal.

    • Guest

      It was the San Juans but yes, they did. Santa Cruz is Cali as well. But we are very proud of San Juan County and hope the rest of our Counties (and the nation for that matter) follow suit.
