march against monsanto 263x164 Worldwide March Against Monsanto Protests Planned for May 25thCountless individuals will soon assemble in small and large groups around the nation and the globe alike in protest against Monsanto’s genetic manipulation of the food supply. Organized under the May 25th movement known as the ‘March on Monsanto’, the massive new rally reveals how the grassroots public has truly had enough of Monsanto’s monopoly on the many staple crops that have quickly been sucked into Monsanto’s genetically modified tycoon.

It’s virtually impossible these days to enter a grocery store, even one bearing the title of ‘natural’, and not encounter at least a few items that contain genetically modified ingredients. And for quite some time, this fact was not even known to the large majority of the United States public. Many simply did not even know what a GMO was, or what it could potentially do to their bodies (or the bodies of the children who they were feeding with genetically engineered processed food).

This, of course, stems from the fact that the FDA and Monsanto have decided that you aren’t allowed to know if your food contains GMOs. Even despite the fact that peer-reviewed research has pegged Monsanto’s best selling herbicide Roundup (which is a key part of Monsanto’s Roundup-ready GMO crops) to around 37 associated diseases, the FDA says it’s perfectly safe. So safe that it’s not even necessary to label in your food. So very safe that the only study that ever examined how Roundup and GMOs affect rats throughout their lifetime found that the rats developed tumors so large that it impacted their very ability to move.

It’s madness that has been identified for a long time by alternative news writers and readers, but thanks to the success of Prop 37 and other initiatives it has now hit the general public — and they’re not happy.

The Grassroots Will End Monsanto

Now enter campaigns like the March on Monsanto, which is slated to happen around the world on May 25th. It’s a grassroots event that has turned into a major organized movement thanks to countless local activists. The event is going on in major cities like San Diego and New York City, to small towns and even rural areas. It’s all being organized online via an open Google Document, where you can find the protest nearest to you and be a part of it. There’s also many open slots for organizers and speakers, so if you’re interested in that be sure to check that out as well.

The beauty of these events is that they are really the most effective at taking down any type of corrupt entity, as the grassroots aspect just empowers so many individuals without an underlying motivation for profits or anything of that sort. It really just comes down to people who want to eat real food and not some junk that’s spliced with the genetics of a spider. Or more importantly, the few people who understand that if we don’t stop genetically modified organisms today, they will develop technologically into what’s known as things like ‘biopharmaceutical‘ crops tomorrow.

I’ve said this back in 2011 and 2012, and I really do believe the grassroots will destroy Monsanto within the next 3-4 years (at most). The company has gotten away with Agent Orange and the hundreds of thousands of deaths from that, it has gotten away with horrendous pollution dumps, it has truly gotten away with so much that the average ‘small business’ (a business that isn’t in bed with the government agencies policing it) would never be able to. And the people aren’t having it anymore.

Checkout March Against Monsanto and head to a local event. Hand out some printed articles on GMOs from NaturalSociety or elsewhere, and just try and spread the word in a kind and inviting way to the general public.

    Remeber South Africa . . .. the President of S. Africa , along with Mandella GOT TOGETHER and said "enough is enough" this must change – AND CHANGE IT DID. Well, if I was on the board at Monsanto – I would be tapping on the CEO 's shoulder and suggesting that "to protect our investor's $, do you think it is time to change?" Guarantee you, this conversation is going to happen after May 25th – if it hasn't happened already. The next CEO will be talking (if they are smart and want additoinal investors) about taking the company ORGANIC. C'est la vie , baby. I'll be in Oxnard , CA at 9 a.m. this Sat.

    When you say "the world" my dear sir, you are ONLY referring to YOUR side of the world.

    There are no marches planned for May 25th in any North Africa country, or any country in Subsaharan Africa. I think that the term WORLDWIDE as YOU use it does not mean what you think it means.

    Note, this is a pity, I would very much like to organize a nationwide march against the evil that is Monsanto. It's just on my side of the world, no one even knows who the hell these guys are.

  • Maynardfan

    Civil disobedience is the best route. Don’t buy their fake food. The agents of the government stir up anger and start riots at peaceful protests all of the time. People protesting – keep your eyes open for govt agents causing unrest! Dont let someone take you out of a place of peace at these protests – NO MATTER WHAT! You must remain peaceful. We will not be bullied anymore!! ROUND UP MONSANTO!!!

  • Linda

    If you are silent……..there will be no change. Stand up for yourself, your family’s, your children, make your voices heard. I will march and will be proud to do so. There is power in numbers. Never forget that…..

  • concerned

    Thank you for the information. If we are not told we do not know. When we find something appears a little odd, we as fellow humans have the smarts to investigate further for the sake of our children, families and the unsuspecting. Do not stick your head in the sand, this concern is real. We have the future of the earth and those many other forms of life that inhabit/share this planet. Stop this contamination of our water and foods. We are all exposed. I give credit to those nations that are aware and do not allow GM foods.

  • AMS

    Need to know more about March in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. No email address on Google site.

  • Debbie

    For your information… look up "Food Democracy Now". A great site that is trying to stop Monsanto.

    Our voice and presense needs to be Loud and Clear. This is now our own new US faced global enemy and should be on the "Most Wanted List". Our European friends have cut Monsanto, Bayer, etc. OUT OF THEIR COUNTRIES!

    We NEED TO DO THIS TOO!!!

  • Ralina

    I agree that we have got to stop GMO's in our food, period. Just don't accept them. Our thoughts and focus are most powerful, so are our own choices. When the legislators see how BIG the protest is, they know they
    can't let this continue. Yes there are new energies for change. If we use this protest properly, the new focus WILL create the change. It can't be stopped :)

    No matter how big Monsanto looks, their downfall is coming. Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Carole

    Labeling is nice, but don't people realize that these GMO crops infect other crops and you can not stop that! In another 5 years there will be no food that has not be messed with so what good does labeling in the long run do? Everything will carry a GMO label because nothing else will be available! People must get off the fence and get active.. Speak out.

    Make fliers stating facts and sites people can go to to get more information, then post around your town , in stores, and on cars. Do what you can but do something.

    monsanto march: in open google doc it has names of organizer, but no email address et al. how to connect? (when we march, focus shd be on positive change, not on anger/resentment/fear. FOCUS HAS POWER)

  • Patti Jo Edwards

    The marches bring attention and build community. They do work and have worked in the past. It isn't a single march in and of itself that accomplishes the goal. It is the growing movement gaining momentum and power until the One Mind shared by many creates the desired change. Thousands of people gathering and marching will reach thousands of the uninformed and the misinformed.

  • Tyson

    Sounds like you are the one infiltrating us. Are you the enemy? Get up,stand up for your right

  • Precious

    I remember when the protest started by Rosa Parks changed a hell of a lot including laws & ongoing marches throught this country…. and does anyone remember the history lesson about the British tea being dumped into the ocean? Change starts with each & everyone of us

  • Nelly

    This isn't going to do any good.

    Haven't you all learned from the "Anti-" Marches and Protests, going on worldwide, since 2003?

    All you're doing is giving your Energy in concentrated form, to tptb. Who organizes all these Protests, anyway?
    This is what they want, what they draw their power from. When we do this, our Energy is sent out in waves to the cops, et al, then they absorb the extra energy, and sent it right back against us.

    It's happened time and time again.

    Any of these organizations, are always infiltrated by the enemy. Always sabotaged.
    You don't need leaders. That's always been the mistake of Humanity, counting on leaders, and when these leaders are brought down, there goes the impetus, the Will.

    There are other ways. Such as Civil Disobedience. Subversion. Throwing a spanner into the machinery, in so many, subtle ways. Invent your own.

    • dave

      You have a poor attitude. You are telling me NO protest or march has ever got any change? You know what never gets change? Sitting on your ass complaining but not leaving your mom’s basement to do something about it. Have fun being silent and saying “there is nothing we can do”….that is what they want.

    • ENERGY WORKER

      I have to agree with Nelly…using The Mahatma’s principle….there should be another way to bring them down ..the powers behind Monsanto have already worked out strategies to counteract these marches..this is warfare against us on all levels.
      Be aware of where you focus ENERGY… Consciousness has changed and we need to work with the NEW TOOLS in our BOX OF TRICKS.

    • Meg

      I don't totally agree or disagree with you, focusing your power in a negative way does not help, don't do with the intention of destroying Monsanto, or out of fear, or anger. It must be positively, with the belief that this will benefit the planet, and the whole of humanity, and serve to bring more people to get involved in a positive creative way, to increase organic crops grown throughout the world. Remember that intention is a powerful thing. If it is your intention to bring more enlightenment to those that may be unaware, to create action in the world to create the will and desire to grow your own food, to create local food co-ops, to encourage people to buy locally grown organic food, grow organic gardens in their yards and rooftops, by doing these types of things you remove power from them and give it back to the earth. If you no longer buy the contaminated products they produce they will change. I realize that this may be an inconvenience for many but it will be well worth it in the long run. I know that organic food is a bit pricey but I do believe that the more people buy it it will ultimately come down in price.

    • Doug D

      I agree Nelly, marching around does no good, its only for the marchers. Making them feel good about themselves. Gandhi had it right, passive resistance. Everyone should sit down, and stop doing what they are doing. Hit them where they live, the money. Dont go to ball games, dont go the movies, dont watch the news. Things like that, Peace

  • Samantha

    I look forward to this march on Monsanto, I have emailed some organizations that help in preserving our planet to help march on this day! It's so unjust to all of us that either we have to eat poison or pay so much for what should be available to everyone. I am attending the one in Union SQ, Manhattan and I hope this will be a really big turn out and make big changes to what is happening against people and animals. Raise our voices loud enough so there will be no more chem-trails, fluoride and GMO!
