It continues to be clear that the awakened public will not so easily be brought down by the GMO industries. However, at South by Southwest (SXSW), it appears that money from GMO corporations talks as true debate is controlled and censored. Katherine Paul, Associate Director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), an organization dedicated to protecting organic standards, has officially been censored from SXSW.
The OCA was asked to sit on the “Southbites: Feed Your Mind” debate held in Austin, Texas but then had their invitation revoked directly from the orders of Cathleen Enright, executive Vice President of food & agriculture, for the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO).
Paul describes a March 3rd phone conversation with Enright, who defended her position by using GMO industry talking points, in which she stated that GMO agriculture is “sustainable” and GMO foods are “safe.” Anyone who says otherwise is making “scary” statements that have no basis in fact because every shred of scientific evidence suggesting health or safety concerns related to GMOs “has been discredited.”
It is a financially proven fact that GMO food is a corporate liability for any company that chooses to manufacture or add these altered ingredients to their products. Scores of GMO corporations and pro-GMO companies continue to experience large hits to their stock prices and trust as the public heads for the exits. Pro-GMO marketing departments are losing, and losing big.
Previously tasked with marketing a product whose success relies on its consumers not knowing where to purchase its product, GMO marketers are being paralyzed into obscurity by the rush of voting with their dollars. The tactics being witnessed currently are those of sore losers that have lost their monopoly on the market, debate, and information.
We have witnessed the people of Vermont win a vote to simply label their food only to be sued and attacked by a conglomerate of GMO corporations. We are now learning about major scientific and research fraud from a new book by Steven Drucker titled ‘Altered Genes Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public.’
It appears on all levels the corporate memo has gone out to push GMO’s by any means necessary in their hopeless push before the final rejection. This is a warning to all individuals, conferences, groups, and companies: The GMO industry no longer has the hearts and minds of the people. Like a vampire in dire need of blood, the industry will latch on to anything it can find to parasite and use up that entities integrity and good name to push their products and agenda.
SXSW is the latest example/victim in which the ideals and integrity the conference stands for is now in jeopardy.

No matter what we say or think Obama votes for GMO’s! Isn’t that what we wanted for our change ?
Yes it is!!
Golly gosh gmo booby now your profile is private so now we know your a monsatan plant !
Golly gosh? We must be pulling out the heavy ammo!!! If that is what you wish to believe then do so, but I know better and have said so on here multiple times.
gmo you think you know something but when your children ae passing from cancer or some other reaction to your chemical lifestyle I hope you remember this.
No you wish cancer on my family? What a sad angry person you must be. You have my pity. If cancer does happen I assure you it will have zero to do with gmos.
You pity me ? Your the one I pity ! You bring the seeds of cancer to all of us ! Someday soon you will answer to GOD for what you have done !
Lol, I have no fear of that, because I know that you have been brainwashed to believe lies.
That’s what has happened to you-brainwashed by your boss-Monsanto.
You’re becoming a real joke here. Nobody takes you seriously. You have
been fed so many lies from your boss you can’t distinguish the truth
from lies and fraud. Give up troll – your time will soon be up.
No one takes you serious either johnny, you don’t even care enough about your country to learn what type of government we have.
gmo booby, Everyone on here that reads your responses knows who is brainwashed monsatan boy!
Only a delusional person like yourself would call the truth brain washing. Why spread worthless lies what is in it for you?
gmo booby, Didn’t your Mother ever tell you it is a SIN to lie ? GOD states that NO sinner shall enter Heaven ! Aren’t you at least a little worried or are you so delusional?
I am very worried for your lying soul kimmie. Hopefully you will switch to a path of truth before it is too late. Let me ask why you don’t like gmos, but have no problem with mutation breeding? Especially since it can even be labeled organic?
gmo booby, I’m worried that you NEVER answer anyone’s questions and continue to spout monsatan corp. line.
ask me anything you want kimmie. I will answer you if I can.
gmo, ok answer this. Why would you use a product that destroys pollinators ?
In order to answer may I ask what product and what pollinators you are referring to?
You need to read this again – OK maybe in your case 10 times or maybe you’re not quite clued in- r e a d i t a g a i n s l o w l y
“No you wish cancer on my family?” did she say that? OK maybe a few more times read it again
Is it sinking in. No not yet?
OK come back when it finally dawns on you what she said.
There’s a good lad.
Hey, johnny did you figure out what kind of a government we have yet?
Is there anyway to block GMO roberts?! So sick of reading his nonsense on every post that has to do w/GMOs! How anybody can think eating pesticides isn’t bad for you is beyond me! All we want is real, healthy food in America like other countries.
Since we export to most countries it is the same.
Look up what countries now won’t take our corn any more!
Why don’t you list a few instead. On top of that we have never been a large exporter of corn anyway as about 80% or more is used domestically.
You can find the info yourself lazy ass!
I didn’t make the claim. I am not going on a wild goose chase looking for information that doesn’t exist.
Can’t come up with any? just a few?
This accusation has been going around for a few weeks now, but neither Cathleen nor GMO Answers “banned” them from speaking or “had their invitation revoked.” Cathleen’s response to this is here: https://gmoanswers.com/studies/was-oca-kicked-sxsw-food-panel-discussion-no
