Mounting Opposition to GMO Crops: The World’s People Reject Genetic Pollution

Mounting Opposition to GMO Crops: The World’s People Reject Genetic Pollution of Food and the Environment

French citizens destroy trial vineyard

Early Sunday morning, French police stood help less as sixty people, locked inside an open-air field of genetically modified grapevines, uprooted all the plants. In Spain last month, dozens of people destroyed two GMO fields. On the millennial cusp, Indian farmers burned Bt cotton in their Cremate Monsanto campaign. Ignored by multinational corporations and corrupt public policy makers, citizens act to protect the food supply and the planet.

The French vineyard is the same field attacked last year when the plants were only cut. But the security features installed after that incident kept authorities at bay while the group accomplished its mission yesterday.

Speaking for the group, Olivier Florent told Le Figero that they condemned the use of public funds for open-field testing of GMOs “that we do not want.”

Pitching tents in the rain near France’s National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA) site in Colmar the night before, the group waited until 5 AM before converging on the site and locking the gates behind them. They uprooted all 70 plants, then submitted to arrest.

This is the second attack on GMO crops to make international news this year. In July dozens of people destroyed two experimental corn crops in Spain. In an anonymous press release, they wrote, “This kind of direct action is the best way to respond to the fait accompli policy through which the Generalitat, the State and the biotech multinationals have been unilaterally imposing genetically modified organisms.”

What scares the Bilderbergers?

People growing their own WHOLESOME food.
They can't poison you, they can't make you give them FRNs for the poison, and they can't make you feel afraid and helpless with a headline about food shortages.

Chickens, gardens, aquaponics. That is some r3volting stuff!

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Food and Depopulation (Part 1 of 4)

Rockefeller Family
The purpose of this article is to give a brief outline of how the elites, and the Rockefellers in particular, are using food as a weapon. Since the Rockefeller family came to power (especially after gaining a monopoly in 1914 with Standard Oil) they have manipulated our government into ruining our financial system by way of the Federal Reserve, energy through oil dependency and food with GMOs (Genetically Engineered Organisms). The intention is to rob us blind and kill us. It's time to wake up. The official name of this program is Agenda 21 Sustainable Development. continued...

Combating Monsanto's GMOs

Monsanto's GMOs, which no one would want if they fully understood the health and contamination dangers, have thoroughly infiltrated America's farms and food supply by way of government regulations, which is how monopolies are created.

The Rockefellers have practiced food control for generations and fund biotechnology. The US government has worked in opposition to farmers and public health in granting Monsanto patents on seeds, thus enabling Monsanto's licensing agreements with farmers that keep the farmers paying royalties even after they stop growing Monsanto products. The United Nations has been complicit in spreading GMO seeds across the world through WTO regulations and other means.

* Many environmental NGOs are accredited through the UN, "non-profit" organizations (tax-exempt is a better description because many of these 501(c)3 organizations reap plenty of profits) and tax-exempt foundations all work together to pursue the Agenda 21 Sustainable Development goals of depopulation and total control, using the environment as the excuse.

The Supreme Court decision that lifted the nationwide GMO alfalfa ban because it was "too broad", means that if GMOs are to be banned, it is up to the States and local governments, so please send this article to your State and local government represtentatives.

Sugar Beets- Monsanto Wins Again

* Sorry to have to report the bad, but not surprising news...

Last Friday a federal judge imposed a nationwide ban on GMO sugar beets and it was overturned the next business day. Sugar beets comprise 50% of the sugar used in US food, and 95% of the sugar beets grown in the US are GMO. It is the jurisdiction of the US Department of Agriculture to determine whether plants are environmentally safe; this case is about whether the plants can cross pollinate (by wind, insects, etc) and contaminate other plants. This could have cost Monsanto billions of dollars.

I wish we had the balls to

I wish we had the balls to have done that. The irradiation of fruits was bad enough, but, at the time, Floridians could not stop it. Now the food does not even have to be labeled that it IS irradiated, and sooo much of it is. They say it does nothing to the fruit, but it does. You can tell because of the way it spoils if not eaten in time. I have seen it on strawberries, cherries and other fruits. They spoil in little odd spots all over the fruit. NO way, the way fruit used to spoil. Who knows what it is doing to those who eat it, because there is no information to tell whether it is or not.

Haitian Farmers say "Burn Monsanto's Seeds!"

A donation 475 tons of hybrid corn and vegetable seeds from the U.S.-based multinational biotechnology corporation Monsanto. The seeds will be distributed by the U.S. government aid agency to Haiti’s farmers.
Haitian farmers have organized a protest:

http://www.activistmagazine.com/index.php?option=com_content...

"Chavannes Jean-Baptist of the Peasant Movement of Papay (MPP) in Haiti called Monsanto’s donation “a new earthquake.” MPP organized the protest march for tomorrow and has called on all of Haiti’s farmers to burn Monsanto’s seeds. “If people start sending us hybrid seeds that’s the end of Haitian agriculture,” said Chavannes."

What's Caused an Estimated 150,000 Farmer Suicides in India ?

Lured by the promise of greater production, farmers are pressured into mortgaging their farms to purchase genetically modified seeds, pesticides, and fertilizer from American companies like Monsanto. Since GM seeds are patented by Monsanto, their repeated use each year requires constant licensing fees that keep farmers impoverished. One bad yield due to drought or other reasons, plunges farmers so deep into debt that they resort to suicide. One study estimates that 150,000 farmers have killed themselves in the past ten years.

PS..Yes, the Haitians know better also! Sad history in Haiti.. small local farmers forced off the land and into crowded cities to work in American, Canandian and European sweat shops. This is what they want to do here in US too!
