I'm at Hong Kong Airport... check out these anti-GMO ads!

So I'm here in Hong Kong (I'm from New Jersey) waiting for my plane to Shanghai. I needed to check the electronic board with all the updated flight info and suddenly this caught my eye. I thought you all should see it so I camped out and waited 10 minutes for all the ads to cycle through again just so I can take snapshots.

It seems that the world hates Monsanto. hahaha

wait a minute--

*tongue in cheek*--

where is the poster who will tell us that anything anti-GMO is against the free market and that all the countries that speak out against it are wrong?

I agree that the government should not be involved, but I believe that Monsanto is at least as evil as most governments--

I wonder who is paying for those ads--

just curious; I'm not sure it matters--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Thanks for posting

It's nice to see the rest of the world is not as insane as we are.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Revoke Monsanto

Rebuke their crimes by revoking their corporate charter , then dissolving this evil to partially re-pay the millions of victims of their crimes against humanity

GMO's are Patented and Monsanto is Evil.

The FDA does a great job assisting Monsanto in getting there GMO's into the Food Supply.

Why dose organically grown food have to suffer with extra regulations and scrutiny while GMO's cruz through the food supply as regular food with the benifits of being patented.

Monsanto does a great job

filling vacancies in the FDA!

A lot of the supermarkets

A lot of the supermarkets that cater to foreigners in Shanghai are filled with GMO free products, usually out of Australia and New Zealand, it's refreshing.

HSBC

I was @ Hong Kong airport in January. While waiting for boarding plane, in the boarding ramp-tunnel (whatever you call it) I was bombarded with WALL-TO-WALL disgusting propaganda of HSBC ads. I wish I had taken pictures of them. Later doing google image searches was futile in my effort.

One of the worst offending HSBC ad I remember glorified Federal Reserve, Monsanto & socialized medicine in the same picture. Basically showed the 1 dollar bill magnified in glory, highlighting the "Federal Reserve" text....showed pictures of conventional (non-organic) corn fields & a huge corn-cob magnified in glory. (Have to assume GMO, as almost ALL conventional corn in the US is GMO.) On the other side of poster were pictures of people sitting in lines @ what looked like a government health clinic.

Again, I wish I had snapped a picture @ that time. Hopefully if you (or someone else) sees such HSBC ad again, they'll capture it.

The anti-GMO pictures you've captured @ same airport look like 180 degree turn from HSBC propaganda.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
