monsantoslavelabor 210x131 Busted: Monsanto Abusing Illegal Workers in Slave Like Conditions

Monsanto’s disregard for human health is evidenced by their hazardous GMO crops and herbicides, but a shocking new report has revealed the company’s illegal ‘slave-like’ working conditions. Forcing slave workers to work the cornfields for 14 hours per day and buy their food (most likely GMO) at highly-inflated prices from the company store, Monsanto has been running these slave rings for an unknown number of years.

What’s more is the company not only ‘hired’ all of the workers illegally, but prevented them from leaving the farm premises and withheld their salaries. The information came to light following a raid by Argentina’s tax agency known as AFIP, where it was revealed that the farmhands were being forced to work almost twice as long as legally permissible and given no compensation. Amazingly, AFIP says that it will hold Monsanto responsible for the slave-like conditions.

Unsurprisingly, Monsanto failed to respond to the story.

Monsanto: A Corrupt History of Inhumane Abuse

This is not the first time Monsanto has abused workers, or even farmers dedicated to using the company’s GM seeds. In fact, Monsanto’s previous crimes against the human race are arguably even more despicable. In 2008 it was revealed that thousands of farmers were committing suicide after using GMO crops. Due to failing harvests and inflated prices that bankrupt the poor farmers, they began to kill themselves oftentimes drinking the very same insecticide that Monsanto supplied them with.

Monsanto conned the farmers into buying GM seeds, which were heavily overpriced and performed far worse than traditional seeds. Monsanto charged the struggling farmers £10 for 100 grams of GM seed, while they could have purchased 1,000 times more traditional seeds for the same amount. The result was career-ending harvests that led to mass suicide.

‘We are ruined now,’ said the dead man’s 38-year-old wife. ‘We bought 100 grams of BT Cotton. Our crop failed twice. My husband had become depressed. He went out to his field, lay down in the cotton and swallowed insecticide.’

Village after village, families were crushed by Monsanto’s tainted seeds. Perhaps even more concerning is the fact that these GMO crops are now consumed across the globe despite a review of 19 studies announcing that consumption of GMO corn or soybeans may lead to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice – particularly in the liver and kidneys. Of course GMO crops not only destroy human health, but devastate the environment.

Thanks to Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, farms across the world are experiencing the emergence of herbicide-resistant superweeds. The heavily resistant weeds have an immunity to glyphosate, an herbicide that Roundup contains. These resistant weeds currently cover over 4.5 million hectares in the United States alone, though experts estimate the world-wide land coverage to have reached at least 120 million hectares by 2010. The appearance of these superweeds is being increasingly documented in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Europe and South Africa.

Following current trends, genetically modified food products will makeup the majority of the future food supply if a change is not made. Statistics show how GMO crops and ingredients have skyrocketed in even the past few years.

Nations Take a Stand

France, Hungary, and Peru are a few of the countries that have decided to take a stand against Monsanto. Hungary actually went as far as to destroy 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar.  Peru has also taken a stand for health freedom, passing a monumental 10 year ban on genetically modified foods. Amazingly, Peru’s Plenary Session of the Congress made the decision despite previous governmental pushes for GM legalization. The known and unknown dangers of GMO crops seem to supersede even executive-level governmental directives.

Through spreading information and speaking out about Monsanto’s crimes against humanity, real change can occur. Even small amounts of activism can result in major geopolitical change.

    Ironically, Monsanto is one of the few large corporations in the Ag industry in India that told the contractors that it was not OK to use children under 16 years of age in the fields. Were there some extremely angry people when that edict came down. I wonder if this isn't a part of the cause of the bitching about Monsanto violating the cultural values of certain groups. Because they were making it harder for the real slavers to engage in their typical behaviour.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Gotta love the fact the US is responsible for most of the worlds problems.

    • Gnarly Carly

      Why don't the slaves burn the damn fields down. I wonder if a slave cooks for them. Slip them a few spoonfulls of rat poison or antifreeze. If they have access to them, they are one step ahead of us.

  • Myfriendscallmetiny

    Revelation 11:18 sums up MonSATAN's coming judgement. "The nations were angry, but the time for your wrath has come. It is time for the dead to be judged- to reward your servants, the prophets, the saints, and all who fear your name, both unimportant and important, and to destroy those who destroy the earth."

    I hope GOD gives us a front row seat.

  • Mortrey

    Interesting that Obama appointed a previous Vice President of Monsanto, Michael Taylor, as his "Food Safety Czar"–I kid you not. Google it.

  • Nikki

    WHY do people in times of fear atart qouting the Bible??? >_>…cmon!..this the same thing.. Dont be weak…religion is for the weak!.. bible thumpers are using this to exploit you.. no better then Monsanto or any OTHER greedy controling thing…lol

    I watched a video of a farmer that lost his farm back in 2001 because he bought Monsanto's "crap" feed for his animals. All of his pigs became sterile. Can't run a productive farm that way. When he concluded the issue resided with his GMO feed, and expressed his concerns for the human population that consumed the product, he contacted officials, and was told to "shut up." He is now an organic farmer.

    • lunilu

      Monsanto have put out a patent for the pig … so they then own the rights to pigs .. check out Natural News website

  • mothman777

    Excellent article. I have just added a link to this article in my essay at 'Mothman777's Blog' on the use of basalt and other rock dusts as a means to greatly improve the mineral content of soil and plants, as well as improving hardiness, volume, resistance to pests and disease. The use of rock dusts can completely destroy the government's and Monsanto's false arguments for the use of GM crops, and provide real nourishment by putting back all mineral content that plants should contain for their health and ours.

    • pazzums

      It's not a mistake they are poisoning you and me and everyone.

      They are cursing your food.

      They use the excuse they are doing something better than God's food that has been here and safe forever.

      They are insane killers.

      They are mad scientists.

      They are part of a cabal of maniacs,akin to demon possessed Charlie Mansons.It is Asymmetrical warfare.They want you off the land or under the land.

      Of course there are very beneficial and truly sane ways to grow better crops.

      It has nothing to do with better food.

      Better food for you is food that kills you and sterilizes you.

      Don't kid yourself.

      You are dealing with demonic psychopaths.

      There is a conspiracy and the hero's are spraying vitamin trails in the sky blocking out the sun.

      A pig farm in Dallas is dumping pig blood in the river,and the authorities were deterred by the security guard.They are also accused of inhumane slaughter of the pigs.

      You don't want to eat frightened animals because they put out chemicals that make you act like a freaked out pig.

      But that's good for them too,because most people believe if they take a pill they will ease their anxiety.

      God allows maniacs like this to be the rod of iron for fools who forget Him.

      The world was full of wonder and great food.Just growing all over the place,and the sunlight purified and nurtured life.

      What is happening is no less than demonic.

      The chickens(in big operations) are raised in dark buildings and never see their chicks.Just crammed into wire cages that hurt their feet with hundreds of other freaked out hens usually with their beaks chopped off so they don't hurt the product too much when they freak out in the dark overcrowded farms.

      The beak is very sensitive to a bird.They chopp them off.

      The chickens are overfed till their legs break.

      But they have a lot of white meat!

      Mmmm!

      They are terrified and depressed all their short life.Then we get to eat them.

      Then off to the pharmacy for anti anxiety pills…and so on.

      God is the answer …

      Even if you don't believe (yet)God can defend you.

      at least according to Alfred Adask.

      He got the courts to relent after he pointed out that the laws over what goes in your body is regulated by them.(Monsanto et al )They say you are an animal and they can feed you whatever they like.You are a human resource like chickenz in a Tyson factory.If they want to kill you they have every right.

      (They also made a spell that you are in debt and the debtor is the slave-property of the lender and therefore you have been sold for nothing as the Bible says people who forgot God would be!)

      Alfred Adask made the courts relent when he used the Bible that says he is made in God's image,and has dominion over animals,and he is NOT and animal and they have no right over his body

      They have you believing you are another animal.

      The laws are written as such.

      But even if you are a Jew Christian or Muslim,the Holy books all say you were created in God's image and have dominion over animals.

      I'll let Alfred Adask explain this,he can do it far better than I

      Man or Other Animals" – Adask Law with Alfred Adask
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=978KE23MCMg
      You are being assailed in an asymmetrical physical,psychological,spiritual war.Only a demon fights like that.

      The thing about it is it is a spell of sorts.

      Like the vampire that can't suck your blood unless you invite him in.

      Alfred Adask resisted the Devil and it fled looking for an easier target.

      One who believes the deception hat man is just another animal.

      The Word Of God saved Alfred Adask from the courts because he knew how to apply what was written in the Bible.

      I'm just saying.

      All of you need to look into what Alfred Adask has discovered.

      If you let them know you are created in Gods image,and are not an animal…they split.

      • C.O. Rodriguez

        Frightened animals? What are you talking about? How are we supposed to kill them; tickling them to death? I guess that's what cavemen used to do. They never ever used to scare animals before killing them. Blahhh some people are brainless

        • Kristie

          yes and that person would be you,, I am sorry that you have no education about life. This can happen if you are poisoned your entire life and given a very bad education. You need help, and it will find you soon. I wish you peace

        • Lauren

          And some are cruel. Here's a thought: eat vegetarian.

      • Logic

        Human are animals we are in fact treating each other as such. the modern human is all but domesticated like a house pet.

        There is truth in you comments but I don't need the Bible I am a Human I know what I truly am and where I come from.

        I think it is man has been coerced into being arrogant/hubris over the world and thus susceptible to evil influence by negative agenda that is more Sci-Fi than most are ready to realize.

        I think its true Monsanto is part of a conspiracy to depopulate and enslave the world by any means necessary.

        Part of that started a long time ago in the Bible

        The Key was get man to believe he was bad and that someone had to DIE for him to live. The last time looked it up a human sacrifice it was a demonic blood ritual. This Idea that man is basically bad sets up apathetic world view.

        Oh and the stuff being sprayed in the sky is toxic Aluminum-oxide. http://youtu.be/rNvnrQBa4oQ

        this too shall pass "the beginning is near"

  • Bill Girtz

    And with the purchase Xe (Blackwater), they now have an army. Think about that for a second.

    • wrangler7711

      Got God?

      Fear cancels out Faith and Faith cancels out fear.

      When you no longer fear your enemies it is a sign to them of their destruction.

      The fearful are the first to go to hell.

      It's all in the Bible.

      Here is your defense
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=978KE23MCMg
      Sorry if it seems spammy but I am tired of Monsanto (One Satan)and the poisoning of all those who forgot God..

      I'm getting poisoned too by them and their phtalate lined uncured plastic lined cans and bottles breathing the radio active particles in the jet stream from Fukishima too.

      God said he would destroy the earth with an unquenchable fire.

      Radiation burns and no end in sight for the Fukishima disaster…

      The Bible says not to blame the Assyriran for it is I who am doing these things to you.

      Wake up.

      You think teaching kindergarten children about every kind of geek sex in the world carries no consequences?

      Not just that, I am using it as an example.

      Look how the people love their idols like Sandusky and the Penn State pervs.

      Look at the "Christian"idol Tebow.

      A public spectacle of praying for a chariot race

      and look at the dead Christians cheering him on as if….

      How about all the Satanic music …pretty cool huh?

      Did you know Djwhal Khul is a demon channeled by Blavatsky who helper her and Alice A Bailey and Annie Bessant write the Theosophy books which are exactly the Bible upside down and backwards?

      Everything we like in this wold we call "cool"

      or is it Khul we worship…

      God is not mocked.

      We have been mocking him since the Aleister Crowley Hippie movement.

      That was when we threw mocking God into high gear!

      He uses monsters like Monsanto (whose destruction does not sleep.)

      But first he uses them as a rod for the backs of fools.

      Lead us not into temptation is in the Lords prayer.

      Why you think thats in there?

      Because he sends a deluding spirit so that those who don't love him voluntarily go off to their own filth happily.

      You and God are a majority.

      If you can find him.

      Fear cancels out faith and God has no pleasure in those who shrink back.

      Blackwater is there to rein in the fearful.The people who pay them will kill them too when they are no longer useful.

      That'll be real real easy to do as they are used to going into conflicts.

      TPTB can just get them in one spot and use some cowardly drones or smart bombs.

      This is how hell operates.

      Blackwater will be eliminated just as cold bloodedly as they killed the Libyans and Iraqi's Afghans…

      Live by the sword,die by the sword.

      They can go tto hell and they will be surprised to find out that they will get to feel everything they did to everyone they encountered all their life.

      Let them fill their cup.

      Examine yourself…(nothing personal…saying to all)

      You were sold for nothing (got bailouts for phony bank transactions?)

      And you will be redeemed without money if you have ears to hear what I am saying here.

      If not have a laugh and pee yer pants about Blackwater!

      Bio-tech madness. Have you heard about the GM mosquito already released in Malaysia and the Cayman Islands? It's scheduled to be released in Florida this spring. The idea is that it will die and it's offspring will die. Of coarse the fish that eat mosquito larvae and the many animals that eat mosquitoes such as hummingbirds, frogs, dragonflies and on and on are not worth considering.

        Hopefully is isn't too late to warn the Floridians to speak out against this move. Can't sleep on this one. Patti Jo, someone got scared from your video. Its been removed from that link.
