For all those folks out there who avoid GMOs like the plague and eat primarily organic, awesome work, but we need you to take your activism to the next level. Many individuals have retirement accounts, that, unbeknownst to them, are invested in Monsanto stock. The same company that created Agent Orange, DDT, PCBs, and glyphosate, causing irreparable damage to humans, animals, and the environment, has extremely deep pockets with which to assert pressure on government agencies and politicians to allow their toxic crops to be sown. For now. By dumping Monsanto stock, we can end this massacre of health expeditiously.
By signing the petition, and sending it to your local bank, brokerage, and investment advisors, you can urge them to divest Monsanto of its millions of dollars used to continue poisoning the planet. As the petition outlines:
“Sadly, under current U.S. law, Monsanto and other seed and chemical biotech companies are allowed to sell their products unlabeled in grocery stores across America.
Rather than simply support mandatory labeling of GMOs in the United States, Monsanto has willfully ignored the will of the American people (90% of whom support GMO labeling) and spent more than $13 million dollars to defeat labeling initiatives.”
Monsanto’s CEO, High Grant even enjoys GMO labeling in his home town of Scotland, yet he hasn’t the moral backbone to allow labeling in the US because he knows this would mean the end for GMO – not just in the US, but around the world. France and other BRICs nations are banning GMO weekly, and it is only a matter of time before this company is bankrupt. Even Vladmir Putin of Russia has voiced the need to protect his people from GMO dangers, and believes that he can keep GMOs out of his country, even while staying in compliance with the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) commandments.
By asking investment managers to remove Monsanto from any open-ended funds under their management, you can ‘cut the snake off at the head,’ and finally divest Monsanto of their ill-gotten millions. Money talks. We listened. Take your money – and your health – back. We will win!
