Eighty "Right Livelihood Award" laureates gathered here in Bonn

this week, including Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser.
AMY GOODMAN: "We’re broadcasting from Bonn, Germany, where the thirtieth anniversary of the Right Livelihood Awards is being held. The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 and has become widely known as the Alternative Nobel Prize."

PERCY SCHMEISER: I think that we feel that we have to stand up for the rights of farmers around the world. All my life I’ve been in agriculture and worked for agricultural policies and laws. And we feel that a farmer should never, ever lose the rights to his seeds or plants, because if we do, we’re going to be back to a serf system, we’re going to be back to a feudal system, that our forefathers, our grandfathers, left countries in Europe many years ago to get away from. Now, in less than—or 100 years, we’ve come full circle, where the control is not by kings or lords or barons, but now it’s corporations.

"PERCY SCHMEISER VS MONSANTO: THE FUTURE OF SEEDS:" (09/17/10): "...Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser, who has battled the biotech giant Monsanto for years. He was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 1997 for fighting to defend the rights of farmers and the future of seeds. "

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

I just finished watching.

What a courageous couple! They remind me of Ron & Carol Paul ... moving forward, hand in hand, one step at a time.

Thanks!

Another recent Monsanto vs.... Monsanto vs. Bollywood star

I guess people are finally fed up with Monsanto push of GMO being responsible for 200,000 suicides:

By the way, one of the best places to get details on independent research of the effects of GMOs is ISIS:

http://www.i-sis.org.uk/GE-agriculture.php

Obama appointed former Monsanto lawyer and VP of Public Policy, Michael Taylor, to the FDA. He was at the FDA in the 90's and some believe he was instrumental in getting Monsanto's rBGH approved.

Sometimes I wonder if a complete economic collapse is the only way to weed out the riff-raff.

What is your motivation in posting outright

corporate propaganda from the Monsanto home site? Did you actually watch the video posted in the OP? Have you been asleep for the past several YEARS and missed the many many stories of farmers and seed cleaners harassed and bankrupted by Monsanto and their huge stable of lawyers and the corrupt courts and federal agencies that enable them?
And do you have Zero understanding of toxic pollution?
Where is your mind?

For an answer to your questions reedr3v. Interested to hear his/her answers :)

Thanks, will watch this

Seems we should avoid the

Seems we should avoid the canola, corn, and soy products altogether since they are entirely polluted throughout North America according to the film. Besides, I think these 3 foods are not very healthful anyway.

Is there no area of life nowadays that doesn't have some evil, liberty stomping, agenda occuring?

There are 8 GMO "foods" to avoid

According to Dr Mercola, this is the list:

corn (of course)
soy
canola (rape seed)
sugar (from sugar beets)
zucchini
yellow crook neck squash
cottonseed (read those labels for cottonseed oil)
Hawaiian papaya

Read the following link carefully and scroll down to see the free GMO brochure in pdf format to help you avoid the stuff that is seemingly everywhere. The derivatives of the first four items is long.

What a great video!

Bump for front page..

Not to long ago, on another post here on DP, there was a discussion going on about the true dangers of GMO food.. In this post, the discussion really focused on the health issues concerning these products.. But, i think the most obvious danger, that can be undeniably proven, is the danger this poses to true freedom of food.. all starting just where most of our food starts, from seed. Patented corporate ownership of any life form is disgusting, and inherently dangerous.. The genetic aggressiveness of these GMO crops can completely destroy all natural, heirloom, and organic crops around the world, while simultaneously granting ownership of all these cross contaminated crops to a few multi-national corporations.. Whats to stop a corporation, especially one as historically insidious as Monsanto, from secretly inserting a gene in their seed that will aggressively spread for the sole purpose of controlling all farms and food? Hmm.. The company that created Agent Orange, PCB's and deadly bovine growth hormone? They would never contemplate doing something like that.....

Well, the more I think about

Well, the more I think about the dangers of GMO food, I feel the biggest danger is what it can do to those who eat it. The animals, who then defecate and it goes into the earth. Seems to me that genetically modified things when digested and utilized in the body could actually change a lot of things in our bodies and on the earth. Just my feelings, regarding this.

I completely agree

I do everything i can to avoid eating GMO's, and have for years. I completely agree with you that they are beyond horrible for your health, and for life on this earth. It is obvious by the polling done that the people don't want them either.
But for me, at least in the the corporations short term, i think Monsanto is more motivated to control seed and eliminate choice. It is only with this control that they could completely implement their system of nothing but toxic waste for food.. As of right now they are more concerned with completely removing the consumers choice of products that are not modified, and making it impossible to grow or make any type of food completely non gmo, giving them the patented right to own essentially 100% of food..
Well, maybe i shouldnt say 100%, since like the coke and pepsi duopoly, there is the illusion of competition with dupont.
All i can say is, thank goodness for the non gmo movement, and the organic and pure food movements. They are putting up a hell of a fight, right along side the farmers..

front page up to Michael

I can give it another bump.

...imagine a storm blows across your garden and that now, genetically-manipulated seeds are in your crops. A multi-national corporation pay you a visit, demand that you surrender your crops - and then sue you for $200 000 for the illegal use of patented, GM seeds. In this definitive David and Goliath battle, one farmer stands up against a massive multinational, and their right to claim ownership to a living organism.

Screw Monsanto

A corporate pox on mankind. Excellent film by the way, hope others will watch it.

The Rockefeller family, who control Monsanto and

are at the moment servants of the Rothschild family, are also sponsoring in the Spitzbergen Islands a seed-bank of all existing natural plants so that, when they have eliminated the rest of us unwanted humans by starvation, they will be able to re-populate the planet with natural plants.

MERCED, Calif. – The mysterious 4-year-old crisis of disappearing honeybees is deepening. A quick federal survey indicates a heavy bee die-off this winter, while a new study shows honeybees' pollen and hives laden with pesticides.
