Poland’s largest farmer uprising ever has occurred as convoys of tractors took to the roads recently in protest of GMO infiltration and land grabs by biotech and Big Ag corporations.
More than 150 farmers blocked roadways and held numerous demonstrations in order to bring attention to the important issue of food sovereignty in Poland. Their focus is a ban on GMOs and a restoration of small farmer’s rights after decades of oppressive health and safety regulations which take rights away from small farms and give them to mono-cropping, poisoning Big Ag mega-companies.
The farmers have been stalwart – refusing to call off their demonstrations until their demands are met. Rallies and demonstrations have littered the country – in over 50 locations. Hundreds are picketing government offices in addition to the road blockades.
In the largest organized farmer’s protest the country has likely ever seen, the farmers are demanding that legislators protect the small farmer from exploitation by monopolizing companies and refuse the sell off of their country’s land to these behemoths. As the farmers point out, once the land is sold, the Big Ag model can’t be stopped, and the land is forever lost.

Until government officials agree to talk with the farming unions, they have vowed to keep up their efforts. Edward Kosmal, chairman of the farmers protest committee for West-Pomeranian Region said:
“We are ready for dialogue. We look forward to meeting with you, Prime Minister, and beginning a comprehensive government commitment to solving the problems of Polish agriculture. If you do not enter into a dialogue with the Union, we will be forced to step up our protests.”
There are 4 simple key demands the farmers would like to be heard:
- Regulation of land grabs by primarily Western companies (translation – biotech and Big Ag) to prevent small farmers from losing their livelihoods.
- The legalization of direct sale of produce and other foods from farms to the people. This cuts out the middle man and allows the higher quality produce of many farms to reach its customers directly. Poland currently has some of the most extreme policies of all of Europe in this regard, making it nearly impossible for small farmers to compete with big food companies who are notorious for selling us fake and highly processed foods.
- Change inheritance laws so that families can rightly leave land under lease to their heirs.
- BAN THE CULTIVATION OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS!
One farmer stated:
“We demand the introduction of legislation that will protect Polish land from exploitation by foreign capital! Agricultural land cannot be sold to commercial companies. It’s part of Polish territory. Once sold it will be lost.
An Intense Escalation of Events
The farmer’s protests represent a dramatic increase in activist fervor that has been boiling to the surface for over a year, with marked unrest in the northern provinces.
These provinces are especially upset about not being able to sell their (mostly) organic produce, though uncertified. It is usually of higher quality than the food grown on modern industrial farms. Poland is one of the last places in Europe where ‘peasant’ farmers still use traditional agricultural methods, without the use of chemicals and very low mechanization, so the soil is healthier, and so are the plants grown there. The large majority of small farms are no larger than 5 hectares.
Industrial-bent foreign corporations are keen to expand their operations in Poland, and many small farmers see the increasingly ridiculous regulations as an attempt to force families off their land.
Furthermore, one of Poland’s biggest industrial producers, in the form of Smithfield (the world’s biggest pig producer which bought Poland’s Animex SA in 1999) is influencing the largely right-wing government. They own a string of 16 hog farms where conditions have been called“horrendous,” so you know they are not interested in protecting small farmer’sland rights or producing high-quality, no-GMO, organic food.
The triad of government and corporate interests in Poland along with EU pressure is causing the protests to reach a more fevered pitch.
“These protests are touching the raw nerve of what’s wrong with the inhuman, neo-liberal and profit obsessed practices of today. Practices which ignore the real needs of farmers and consumers alike.”

Polish farmers are joined with millions of others who have been protesting against Monsanto, Cargill, and other biotech and Big Ag interests who have little concern for the quality of our food supply. Over 50 countries have marched against Monsanto, so the thousands marching in Poland are not alone. Almost all states in the US have marched against Monsanto and Big Ag, and Vermont recently staged a protest at the US Canadian border which involved more than 79 Vermont towns.
“We are here at the border to demonstrate the global solidarity of farmers in the face of corporate globalization. The corporate takeover of agriculture has impoverished farmers, starved communities, and force-fed us hazardous genetically engineered crops, only to line the pockets of a handful of multinational corporations like Monsanto at the expense of farmers who are struggling for land and livelihood around the world!”
You can read more about land grabs by multinationals at Pesticide Action Network, as well other sites. The actions of these companies keeps the world hungry and sick, not well fed. As the Global Policy Forum explains, unfair distribution of land, and unfair access to ownership explain much of the poverty and hunger in the world – NOT – as biotech would have us believe, the inability to grow enough food. Its all about distribution.
It is the one- percent-ers, owning most of the multinational companies, not rural farmers who commandeer the land. Even when small farmers do own land, they still suffer from inequality due to government regulations that favor these enormous companies.
“The struggle for land reform, which would shift the balance of power in favor of marginalized landless farmers, has been going on for many decades. However the food and financial crises contribute to worsening the trend towards land concentration, in which governments, agro-industrial corporations and private investors buy up fertile land in poor countries, [largely to spread GMOs] depriving small farmers of their ability to grow their own food.”

LOL Poland brought down the Red Bear of the USSR. I’ll put my money on them taking down the Skull and Bones of Monsatan!
Gmos are not only the present, but also the future, why stop progress, especially when it has been proven without a doubt to be nothing but good.
Where are the long term studies on GMO by independent sources or do you believe everything corporate propaganda says. I understand Monsanto will not allow independent study of the effects of their products. Sounds to me like they are terrified of the truth coming out. Profits trump peoples health.
Go to gmodangeroustalk. Com. There you can find research from around the world. However, the best research is happening on livestock farms where they have already been fed for up to twenty years without a single issue. I challenge you to actually take a drive and go visit a few and go see for yourself.
……..you clearly only read biotech studies because from independence research have shown GMO corn can cause cancer, thyroid, and reproductive problems in rats. And again there is no long term study on humans. Right now anyone eating GMO foods is the lab rat so we’ll see who’s right or wrong in 15 years…..but then again it’ll most likely be covered up.
Well let’s see, they have already been in the food chain for more than fifteen years with over three trillion meals served. All with none of your horror stories. Your one study in rats has been tore apart by every creditable scientist. Isn’t it the least bit funny that no one has been able to replicate it? Google gmo dangerous talk, go to the website and look for research with independent funding.
There are no epidemiological studies investigating potential effects of GM food consumption on human health.
The list of several hundred studies does not show GM food safety.
International agreements show widespread recognition of risks posed by GM foods and crops
The researchers themselves concluded that the presence of segments of Gene VI “might result in unintended phenotypic changes”. They reached this conclusion because similar fragments of Gene VI have already been shown to be active on their own (e.g. De Tapia et al. 1993). In other words, the EFSA researchers were unable to rule out a hazard to public health or the environment.
Well so you should at least want them labelled so you can gorge your pie hole on them! It’s a minute and a half, so it should be enough for your attention span.
You can read the equivalent of War and Peace 50 times.
History Of Monsanto
Yo, troll meat, hope your readers will check this out:
“Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?”
Jul 20, 2009
By The Editors of Scientific American
Sorry scum bag but I hope your people don’t check out gmodangeroustalk. Com. Research rom across the globe that confirms gmos safety.
The only research that confirms the safety of GMO’s is that research done within the biotech industry….hardly biased research. Any research to the contrary has been made to seem irrelevant by the biotech industry to protect their profits and continue their agenda.
Obviously, you didn’t go to the website and look at the independent research data. Why? Afraid of what you will find? Or can’t you handle the truth? It couldn’t be the social media that has been lying could it?
Would this be the social media from networks, that have advertising contracts with the food industry, and the pharmaceutical industry, GMO Robert? Because we are not going to get the truth from them! Here’s the deal, regardless of all the research on both sides of the fence….none of this circumvents the right to know what our food is comprised of. 64 countries including China have gmo labeling, and yet the “land of the free” does not.
Did you look at the site? Does it say anything about networks? If you didn’t look into it then you just don’t know now do you?
As far as labels are concerned, why label junk information? Because you “think” you have a right? Maybe I think that beef should be labeled by breed such as angus, hereford, or holstien. Why? Because I think one tastes better. Silly isn’t it. Labels are there for a reason. Usually for nutrition and health. For example fat content, protein, or sodium content. They are also there for allergen concerns. Since gmos have been proven the same nutritionally and there are no recorded allergies to gmos then there is no reason to label except for your childish fears. If you don’t like it then fine buy organic, because you in all honesty would you still buy a labeled non gmo product that has been raised with even more dangerous chemicals than the gmos were? Probably not. Of course you buy organics when some of them were created using atomic radiation so what is the difference in the end anyway.
Robert, I have been fighting for the labeling of GMO’s since the 90’s, and I am far from a child or having childish fears. Yes I do think I have the right, it is my hard earned money paying for the product, without the consumers purchasing power, the food industry would be in a world of hurt. Our money, our stomachs, our right to make an informed decision.
Honestly, I wouldn’t have a problem with the labeling of beef by breed, however I don’t see it happening.
There are no records of allergies from GMO’s, because the FDA hasn’t issued any tracking of food allergies or digestive issues pertaining to GMO’s. You may not be aware that secret memos, from the FDA, that were made public due to a lawsuit, reveal an overwhelming agreement among the FDA’s own scientists that GMO’s can create ‘unpredictable, hard to detect side effects.’ These scientists have asked for long-term safety studies but the White House, yes that’s right the White House has ordered the FDA to promote biotechnology…..makes me wonder how many of our congressmen own stock in biotechnology….doesn’t it make you wonder?
Biotech companies are desperate to stop the growing movement in America to allow the public to know what they are consuming. These companies have spent upwards of 100 million dollars in the last 3 years in an attempt to deceive the American public and stop GMO labeling. However they are labeling for the overseas market, so why not here?
“Scientists around the world, including supporters of GMO foods, have expressed strong concerns about long-term effects . These concerns should spur extensive research. Instead, our traditional public research and regulatory institutions – FDA, EPA and USDA – have given low priority to serious research regarding the environmental effects of genetically engineered crops.”
R. H. (Dick) Richardson, Ph.D., Professor of Integrative Biology, Univ. of Texas at Austin
Lol, the secret allergens!! Yes, all one big conspiracy theory. When you have no proof whatsoever lets play that card. Labeling is so funny, yes the EU has labeling, but they are the worlds largest importer of gmo corn. It is fed to livestock that isn’t labeled. Ben & Jerry’s like to promote gmo free ice cream, but did you ever research the label? Milk from cows fed gmos are exempt from labeling, because it isn’t a direct gmo. A label is no better than the red tape behind it. Another example is the organic ruby red grapefruit. It was created using atomic radiation to alter its genes. Now that’s really organic isn’t it? Gmos have been out for twenty years in the real world with no problems reported. This isn’t some lab study these are real applications. It is also ignorant to group all gmos together as each are totally different as should be based on their own merit. Even ones that accomplish the same goals are different, for example Monsanto’s but event and Dow’s both control European Corn Borer, but do so using different genes. So again, there are so many holes in your feeble arguement and none in the gmos.
Yo, troll meat, scum bag here.I went and checked out the site you recommended. It was interesting in that the first few articles that I read , as might be expected, appeared on sites that are maintained by Agribusinesses front groups such as the Council for Biotechnology Research and the Grocery Manufacturers Assn. Source watch .com had many colorful things to say about these propaganda arms of the big six. I see what you are about and who you are in bed with.
well dude, I went to the site you recommended. Thank you for that. After some analysis I have observed that the majority of sites that they link to are front groups for big ag and their associated interests. The Council for Biotechnology and the Grocery Manufacturers Assn.would be examples. Can you say astroturf? I knew you could. Ahh America, where writers write what they are paid to write and science “proves” what it is paid to prove, and trolls like you abrasively pump the propaganda.
I guess you missed the titles “Studies with independent funding”, “600+ safety assessments”, and of course “A decade of EU funded research 2001-2010”. All of these don’t have big ag paying for them, but you chose to skip them. Can you say blind. I thought so. What you said proves that you aren’t interested in the truth, just the propaganda lies that agree with you.
Well sir that didn’t take you so long. I guess you are on constant patrol for your masters. I understand, perhaps you have a mortgage and student loans to pay. It’s I suppose the same type of pressure that otherwise decent American folks are feeling as they work for the agencies writing software to spy on the American people. What i like to research is the money trail. Almost all that you forward as “independent” funding is not so very clean after all. Source Watch is a very good reference tool foe sorting out these “independent information outlets I am certain that you will shoot back some clever pre-prepared talking point. I expect no less. You certainly will not discuss the research monopoly Monsanto has over unrestricted study of their products as I mentioned in my first post. Nor would you actually discuss the fact that most of what you have pointed to is tainted by the connection with big ag front groups. I suppose “independent” is a relative term in your case. Bottom line : This technology, whatever potential is has to be of benefit, as it is being applied in this industry, has little to do with anything that is in the consumer’s interest. It’s about monopoly and control of agriculture itself; Given true and honest information and the right to choose what they are consuming, consumers would vote with their feet, market forces would apply, and the GMO monster would crash. I is all too apparent Perhaps very ignorant and unscientific but people deserve the right to choose.
Well excuse me for looking following my morning routine and looking at the new articles and responses each morning before I get ready for work. As far as “masters” are concerned I have a wife and kid, LOL that doesn’t leave room for many more. Fortunately I own my own business, mortgage is about paid with no students loans, but thanks for incorrectly stereo typing. I guess that is why America is still on top as you keep underestimating us. Instead of trying to educate yourself, you just drown in jealousy.
As far as your research is concerned, it is clearly spelled out who paid for that research, but as always, it isn’t good enough for you, and neither are the results since they don’t agree with your lies. As far as the right to choose? If there is no evidence at all showing why, and there is proof that both are nutritionally the same then no there is no reason to label. Why spend the money? Strange how you don’t think ruby red grapefruits should not be labeled organic, but that is just another of your failings.
It seems to me that as much time as you spend name calling, misinforming and otherwise trashing people on numerous sites such as this one, you would not have much time to do any thing else. I guess your business runs itself. Two things are apparent to me in your latest message. 1. You are clearly opposed to peoples right to choose what they consume. 2. You infer that I am writing from outside the US. This is indeed true and there is no legal way you could know that. This is a red flag to me and indicates that there is much more to GMO Roberts than meets the eye and I trust that the administrator of this site will take note of this.
As for your unwillingness to actually address clearly and directly any issues that I have raised. One example is the afore mentioned article from the editors of Scientific American. I this article is a clear discussion of the fact that the EULA agreement covering GMO seeds prohibits using the seeds for any research purposes without the express written approval of the seed manufacturer. So much for independent research. When banks do with money what you are trying to do with information it is called money laundering. I’m not the liar here as every thing I have said can be verified. I have provided the tools to verify what I have said.
Right now I run my business from a phone and a computer, more employees than I need at the moment. As soon as the weather changes it will be just the opposite and I will have very little time in a day for people like yourself. Strange though you seem to have the time as well. Funny how you talk about Americans in the third person and then can’t figure out how I assumed you are from another country. I guess it must be your iq that doesn’t think people could figure it out. You are also wrong, when you say I don’t think people should be able to choose. I have never said we need or should get rid of organic labeled products. I also am not opposed to labeling things non gmo. Then the people that want the labels can pay the price, and then the cost of labeling becomes a non issue. What is truly funny is who will buy it? Since non gmo doesn’t mean it wasn’t raised with out fertilizer and chemicals, so your organic people still won’t buy it. You also seem to think that it is a bad thing that a seed company asks to be informed of what type of research is being done to their seed. Tell me how many lawsuits have ever been filed over illegal research on seed? None. Your arguments have again been verified that they just don’t make any sense.
“Funny how you talk about Americans in the third person and then can’t figure out how I assumed you are from another country.”
Not a leap I would have made, but OK.
“You also seem to think that it is a bad thing that a seed company asks
to be informed of what type of research is being done to their seed.”
Being informed about the research is not the issue here. What the EULA does is give the manufacturer the ability to veto research it does not approve. This is very different than what you describe. The editors of Scientific American did not seem to think that this was such a good thing and I agree with that assessment.
“Tell me how many lawsuits have ever been filed over illegal research on seed?”
I think it unlikely that an independent researcher would spend scarce research funding for projects that they would not be legally able to publish, nor would they receive money for research projects that would land them in court. The absence of such lawsuits does not really say anything.
Yes i have had some small time to devote to this singular experiment in Troll feeding As you have been engaged in many other discussions on this site in conjunction with this discussion, It appears that you are the one with far more time to devote to this pursuit.
I have always wondered what it would be like to go down the rat hole and now I know. It certainly has been an interesting education. I is nice to be experiencing first hand the inner workings and techniques of your industry. I especially enjoyed your name calling (I’ll admit that I am the one that started that, but I only did it once) and the sidestepping or deflecting by slight of hand every issue presented to you. Brilliant and persuasive techniques all. I gives me much to much to ponder in the future for which I am grateful. Thank you.
So you are saying Seralini got Monsanto’s permission? I think not, but at the same time he didn’t end up in court. Of course you can’t really call that research now can you. As far as time, sorry, that I am a much better at managing it than you seem to be. Like I said it really doesn’t take that long. As far as actual information, no don’t take my word actually get out and see how the real world works. I would say that to anybody, then you will come to realize that all the horror stories just aren’t true.
good for killin’ people & givin’ them cancer.
gmos have never hurt anyone. They are even good for the organic nuts that spread lies about them.
bullshit. there’s been studies that been proven to link gmos to cancer. most european countries have banned or labeled gmos. hell, pesticides r a toxic chemical not for consumption, yet companies like monsatan spray the shit on our food.
yeah, let someone else do it.
Can I ask you what you’ve done?
Here’s something I’ve done for the last 6 years, and some are finally showing fruit.
Lately I’ve been really busy letting them know that the measles everyone’s getting is the lab created Schwarz strain, and not real measles.
Also I’ve found out they’re Fracking by my house five sites between Shakopee & Mankato. Two are in the Minnesota River Valley National Wildlife refuge.
Then there are 8 of them by Lake Pepin and the eagle refuge.
What are they putting into our air and water:
* deadly arsine gases
* other radioactive nuclides
* alpha methyl styrene
* diesel fuel
* other VOCs (volatile organic compounds) including: benzene, toluene and xylene
Radon gas has a radioactive decay half-life of 3.8 days. Its decay products are the radioactive elements of:
According to the National Academy of Sciences, “there are no safe levels of radiation”.
The fact is fracking is a way for gas and oil to partner up with the mob, to dump toxic and radioactive “WATER” down the well, and make a shit load of money that taxpayers pay for, AND the clean up when discovered.
I’ve had to put re open 9/11 investigation, and other false flag attacks, the derivative bubble, chemtrails, and weather control or Geoengineering on that back burner. I need to start cranking up on the state and fed Farm Bill and get that right side up. PolyMet and the BWCA. Oh I almost forgot the disappearing moose, and other wildlife, and CWD in our deer herds up here.
END THE FED!!
But I have had a coauthor on a published paper and 3 bills out of the hole and moving forward.
I did research for Dr. Swanson on this to inform Washington state voters on GMO’s for I-522 That was just peer reviewed and published last Nov.
MN S.F 335
MN H.F. 351
MN H.F 272
Opt out of fluoride
This doesn’t include all the hours writing thousands of letters, and meeting politicians, going to caucuses, and getting elected to be a delegate at conventions. Active in the occupy an tea party movements.
So I’ll ask you again Mr. Stibbs, what have you done? If you’ve done one thing I’d be impressed. Just for the fact that that is more than 99.9% of the other people do.
I was laid off from construction at the end of 2008. Figured out why, and I’ll most likely never go back to work again, I went back to that octopus called the FED, which is mostly foreign banks, and also figured out we were in the end game of Agenda 21.
You should read the Octopus by Danny Casolaro. He was murdered about a week after it was published.
This is interesting as in their newsletter, “The Warsaw Voice” does not mention GMO – it does mention that Framers do not want foreigners buying up land but no mention of Big Farmer companies. Also I know a few Polish Framers and they are happy to use “Round Up” on their crops. In fact I am growing bamboo to protect my farm from the neighboring round up spraying. Many farmers buy illegal pesticides from the Ukraine to save money, there is also a huge stockpile of old DDT and other out of date pesticides in dilapidated barns (stodola) all over Poland :
Here is one of their articles:
Farmers protest against difficult situation in agricultural sector
February 12, 2015
Several thousand Polish farmers who say they are struggling to make ends meet Wednesday used their tractors to block roads towards Warsaw demanding help from government for losses due to Russian embargo on EU agricultural products as well as by a ban on the ritual slaughter of meat.
Protesting farmers demand, among other postulates, the dismissal of Farming Minister Marek Sawicki, compensations for damages caused by wild boars, reinstation of milk quotas and an intervention on the livestock market.
Sorry Rocky, but these American activists try to take things out of context. Have no fear that most Americans know the truth, that is why every time gmo labeling has been put to a vote by the people it has failed. The American farmer also knows the truth as they plant over ninety percent gmo corn and beans. So don’t worry in the end truth will prevail and these liars will lose.
American and Canadian farmers are having their crops rejected by other countries because of GMO contamination.
Strange how it still all disappears then isn’t it.
GMO Robert is right Raul….it does disappear….the food industries in America buy it up at a reduced cost and it’s on American grocery shelves. 70% of processed foods in America contain GMO’s. Also our government uses trade sanctions to force countries to accept the GMO crops.
I think a lot of stuff on this site is useful and I am against GMO but I don’t believe 90% of farmers (including Polish) have the interest of people or animals at their heart. They are pretty ignorant about anything “green” and just care about profit. The Polish farmers are even protesting the ban on the ritual slaughter of meat – not for religious reasons but purely ‘cos Halal slaughtered meat was a good income. No one is protesting how pigs are raised in the Smithfields owned factory farms in Missouri Poland and most Catholic Poles don’t seem to care.
It always surprises me how the Poles happily get their Factory farm pork sausages and battery hen laid eggs blessed by the priest at Easter. What would Saint Francis of Assisi think?
I think you misconstrue the article, their protest is about big agribusiness buying up the farm land to grow GMO crops, and pushing out the small farm business.
POssibly: But this is not top of reasons in the Polish press. However the Polish Gov will do anything to be loved by the west.
Anyway the Polski farmers needn’t worry, with the 17 Billion IMF loan agreement, GMO has all the new land it needs in Ukraine. Once they join the EU, its GMO thru the backdoor.
this protest wasn’t about gmo
This protest was had everything to do with government policies and nothing to do with GMO. The author shouldn’t write about something she had no idea about/ lie
All across America, this should be happening. If our elected reps weren’t so corrupt and bought out, none of this would be taking place!!!!! This isn’t a Dems vs Reps thing, this is a corrupt thing!!!!!!!!!!! Wake the hell up Americans!!!!!! or continue to feed your kids the poison that Monsanto is forcing on everyone!!!!!!!
see this? ‘the illuminati agenda-7 billion people under mind control of a fews shepards’ (world truth tv)… its not a secret
GMO’s has been around for centuries, only difference is back then they used grafting instead 🙂
GMO Roberts. The name says it all. Probably has stock in Monsanto. I always am very saddened to see what people are putting in their carts at the grocery store. Especially the meat. Which I have not eaten for over 30 years and am ever so thankful for every single day.
Sorry no Monsanto stock here, don’t even really like them. Don’t blame you for not buying the store meat either, I only buy locally raised gmo fed beef as well.
If GMO is so great, LABEL IT and brag about it. Other wise F right off with your poison.
I agree with Pauline. GMO Roberts is an idiot and a troll for Monsatan.
GMO’s are poisonous and need to be banned entirely.
GMO Roberts, go take your Monsanto laden propaganda elsewhere.
Nobody believes anything you say.
We know your are a troll for Monsatan.
How much are they paying you to spew that drivel?
Do you like to have sex with children as well?
Twenty years zero problems, but they are poisonous. Good for you and fairies are real as well. Please send us more from Fantasyland when you can. Oh wait Disney serves gmos, guess that won’t work.

If GMO food is so good, why won’t they label it and brag about the benefits of it ? If its so good, they should be proud of the results, shouldn’t they ? Instead, they spend millions of dollars trying to hide their poisons from any labelling . The reason is that if it was labelled , then the connections between health problems would become very apparent and everyone would boycott their garbage.
Get lost already GMO roberts scum… or answer the questions…
God you sound like a broken record. If it was labeled lies like yours wouldn’t go away the would quadruple at the least. Costs would go up for everyone, and no one would benefit. I don’t really have to tell you this as you already know it. You just want prices to rise so you do feel bad about overpaying for organics
How weak can you get ? Broken record ? Seriously, what are you talking about? How would any costs go up for labelling a product ? You are a complete moron … deal with it….
Are you that stupid? What good is a label if there is no red tape behind it to make sure it is correct? Let me guess, you think magic words on a label need nothing to back it up? Just take everyone at their word? That isn’t good enough for you now. You are such a loser.
What good is a label ?
To tell a consumer what it is exactly what they are buying, so they can decide to purchase GMO, or not, which is called freedom of choice, which you seem to abhor.
If GMO is so great, then you should label it, advertise it, and stand by it , not hide behind it, like they do right now.
No a good label is there for a proven health reason period. Fat content, sodium, protein, etc. also for allergens. There is no reason for labeling gmos as they are equal to their non gmo counterparts. That is why they were approved.
Wrong. A label is there for people to decide for themselves what to eat.
As for you saying “There is no reason for labeling gmos as they are equal to their non gmo counterparts. That is why they were approved.”
Honestly, I dont believe you or who have approved them (FDA is so corrupt and bought off) and have done my owm research. So take your BS and move along already and stop telling me that there is no reason to label your poison already…
How would anyone ever know it is GMO that is hurting them if they do not even know that they are eating it ?
Be proud of your GMO and label it already or you will be boycotted like I boycott all GMO and I am healthier than you will ever hope to be. Lead by example or get out of the way.
Name me something that is on a label just so you can choose? Just one that is mandatory. If you don’t like it then buy organic, that is why it exists. One question though, do they put created with atomic radiation on you “organic” ruby red grapefruits? Why not? That is how they were created.
As for you being healthier than me? LOL, since neither of us know the other, that is just showing how utterly stupid you are.
is not true what is written in this article at all! It had just nothing
to do with GMO. Farmere in January/ February 2015 in Poland were
protesting due to russian embargo so they couldn’t sell their products
and they were expecting governament to help them somehow for example by
compensation. GMO is of course an important issue, but this time –
really – it had nothing to do with it. Simply saying – the journalist has told untruth.
I don’t agree with you, you can find details at http://protestrolnikow.pl/komunikat-o-co-chodzi-rolnikom-wokol-protestow-nszz-ri-solidarnosc/ in Polish TV there wasn’t been full information (as usually) about of all postulates.
stop lying! this protest had nothing to do with GMO!!
