May 25 - March Against Monsanto
occupy-monsanto.com ^

Posted on 05/06/2013 10:04:36 AM PDT by freeB

This is a Call to Action for a Non-Hierarchical Occupation of Monsanto Everywhere

Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and unlabeled GMOs. Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide.

This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products.

We urge you to help organize and attend the closest March Against Monsanto taking place on Saturday, May 25, 2013!

Where can we go to support Monsanto and counter these idiots. Should we send them a letter in support? Better life through chemicals. Just not the kind that the ickupiers use. Asshats. Maybe they should track the materials and processes used on some of the duds they’re wearing.

The main problem I have with Monsanto is how much in bed they are with the government and how they use that as a tool to keep upstart ag tech companies down....

No fan of Monsanto, but if this org wants to have broad based support, it must avoid the language and tropes of the left.

I don’t think it’s crazy to ask for food labeling to tell me what exactly is in the foods in grocery stores, especially packaged ones.

This is a world wide event, many countries have events going on same day.

Unless you like getting sick sumptoms from what you consume? I don’t, and I’ll be attending to support the need for protection that was just passed to protect monsanto to be re-addressed. Too many illnesses due to our food supply being tainted in many ways. If we don’t speak up, it will get worse.

No, we should counter onsanto and the anti GMO fools at the same damned time.

Counter monsanto for being in bed with big government and counter the hippies for being dirty dumb hippies.

I don’t care that they took on the “occupy” term etc, the point is folks across the world are attending events on May 25 in protest to the chemicals monsanto is exposing us to if we buy foods not properly labeled to tell us of GMO or pesticides etc.

It has broad based support there are events in numerous countries listed and across the USA.

This isn’t just about GMO labeling, the Occupy Monsanto and Moms Across groups are anti-corporation who just look for any angle to get government to take over these businesses or close them. The anti-GMO hysterics are about as ridiculous as the anti-Vaccine hysterics (Moms Across also was into that).

Luddites under a different name.

If you scratch the surface of these groups, they are the same leftist groups that protest power plants, oil drilling, and any other industrial advancement in the past 50 years.

A five year old could educate himself enough to know what to look for (buy local, organic or grow it yourself if you don't want these). We don't need Big Brother holding our hands and our soup spoons.

What, huh? Food caused a kid to shoot his mother 22 times after trying to rape her? WTF?

Are you really going to be marching with these idiots to "occupy Monsanto?" Is that what you're admitting?

Chemicalphobes and Luddites unite! Join us and prove to the world that you never had to take a course in basic science.

Yeah, life was so much healthier when we were huddled around a bonfire wondering why no one lived to see 30.

What we really need is MORE choices when it comes to GMO foods, more upstarts making their own unique GMO products that can compete against each other in a marketplace that doesn’t have big government playing favorites (like monsanto) and that is open to labeling if something is GMO or not. (let the market decide).

Also some GMO that has issues is the stuff that contain pesticides and herbicides in the food. Even though the pesticides and herbicides are “naturally occuring” in other plants there is a reason we don’t just eat those other plants.

The stuff that is good is when they modify a food to contain more nutrients like the vitamin A enhanced rice.

The luddites are against it all, much like the anti tech luddites of the past who were against steam power, which could be dangerous, but also saved many lives and increased the quality of life.

What these people don’t realize or accept is that ‘Genetic Modification’ has been going on since man started farming. Pretty much everything on our food shelves or what we grow (even heirloom varieties) are the result of genetic modification such as cross breeding, splicing, etc.

The only difference now is that technology and science have made it possible to do this down to the DNA level in a single generation versus trial and error over many, many generations of the plant.

when I lived in NJ the local farmers sprayed nasty pesticides - it’s not so easy and no a 5 year old in todays grocery store would not make wise choices.

I understand what many of you say, but this in not just a USA thing with our knuckleheads in charge, this is people around the globe sick of the protection of corproations trying to poisin people and create more disease which gives them the idea we need their “sick care” obamacare crap.

If they would stop messing with our food and adding HFcorn syrup and GMO etc we would not have half the health issues or need for rediculous health insurance we pay. to keep my payment manageable I had to up my deductible from 1500 to 10k.

Saturday I was at an event to promote my work, and the displayer next to me was selling people more free health care from the govt.

Our food options are important so we don’t get sick and need health care.

May 25 is against big brother. so what if sponsors have left leanings. If you read the Momsacrossamerica petition its about boycotting stores carrying largely GMO foods.

Seems your only concerned with you on this issue. you know what to do, and maybe your family knows what to do - well what about helping others to know? an event world wide like this would likely make news? Maybe help wake up a few more people.

I’ve been getting a lot of emails about this GMO food issue and the argument is that the food is genetically modified to resist the effects of the insecticides, herbicides and fugicides, so that the farmers can freely spray the fields without killing the crops. All the other complaints are nonsense.

Now, the question is, “Do the herbicides, insecticides and fungicides, build up in the food stuffs?” “Are we eating the pesticides along with the foods? “ “Is there a limit to the amount of these pesticides that humans can safely ingest?” I don’t know the answers to these questions.

I became aware of this because of the coal terminal that Obama wants to build with tax incentives in my WA State county. The developers (Goldman Sachs) have told people that the sub-bituminous coal is only the excuse to get the infrastructure built, that the real goal is to ship grain and soy beans to China. Now, at this time, there is no grain or soy beans to ship because the federal government pays farmers not to grow, The idea is to lift the restrictions and in five years time start shipping grain and soy beans to China. Monsanto would be paying the farmers to grow the GMO crops to maximize the harvests.

May 25 is against big brother.

No, May 25th is nothing more than a meeting of anti-capitalist morons who will be denouncing the fact that we are not currently living in pre-industrial villages.

A hundred years ago, an American male could expect to live about 50 years. Today, the average American man can expect to live about 80 years. Damn those evil American corporations! Damn those evil pesticides and herbicides!! Damn that evil GMO food!!!

May 25th will be just another day except for a few idiots on parade who will be protesting the very technology that has made their lives so much better. Like Ron White says, though, "You can't fix stupid."

you know I’ve gained much knowledge reading posts here. I read for quite a while before joining. Now I post some thing and all you do is criticize. Nothing in life is perfect. Many of you speak of belief in God, but quickly judge.

you make me laugh that you have such blinders on and cannot see possibility of God in this - the global uprise about our food sources getting too controlled and corps like monsanto that dominate and do things that are likely making people sick being protected and our media filling peoples head with thoughts there is no problem it’s ok but more and more obesity and more and more kids with issues etc -

God can use anything any way he wants and all many of you see is left or right. God loves us all, and will raise up and take down whom He choses as He wishes. In the mean time we are to fight the good fight and do the right thing like help bring awareness about govts and corps run amuck.

My church just packed last week over 800,000 meals of rice, veggies and soy protein. I was glad to help - but I had to wonder about the soy protein flakes and the vitamin powder/seasoning. Was this food helpful or hurtful to the people with no food?

We in USA have such a glut of food options it’s easy to shrug it off as “not my problem. I’m doing fine and I’m educated in my choices” that to me says self focused. God says be God focused and help our neighbors. Many of our neighbors are lost - caught up in media hype about what “food” is. And our govt who is also our “neighbor” is wacked out in it’s thinking.

if not May 25th or July 4th what do you suggest as a way to educate folks to buy wisely, so we can truly make a change in having more and better food choices?

Yes people who grew up and ate decent food in the early 1900’s will live to 80ish. they were grown with the sense to eat fresh fruits and veg etc - but as many age they too are succumbing to processed additive/pesticide laden crap sold as food.

kids, onthe other hand grow up thinking the processed additive filled pesticide riddled crap food is truly nutritious. corps add back in syntheic vits and minerals and our bodies were not made to ingest and be nursihed with synthetics.

As a child I went to disney world and loved the monsanto attraction. I don’t like this monsanto money grab, and govt protection.

Number of locations does NOT Indicate breadth of support, any more than it did for the occupy movement itself.

If you see a lot of the general nuisance lefties (Code pink, Feminist groups, Marxists, etc) show up, that charactrizes the event.

show up with a prolife sign, if they leave you be, they are okay. If they spit vituperation or scatter, it is a leftist event. Works with front operations like the Larouchites, too.

As opposed to the people with no food starving to death? Good grief, do you even read what you write? Is it better a child have soy protein to sustain life, or is it better that he die a gruesome death and not have to worry about your silly and unfounded fears?

Moronic fretting like this is why my kids have to learn in school about how wonderful Rachel Carson was even though she is responsible for more death than Stalin, Hitler, and Mao combined. It's also why one of the greatest Americans remains relatively unknown. Norman Borlaug saved a billion people, mostly children, from starvation by pioneering GMO foods. Yet Rachel Carson is in the school books because, like you, she opposed scientific progress. It's just plain insidious and I have no patience for people who intentionally promote this idiocy.

I admit I don’t trust Monsanto either. The crops resistant to the chemicals are called “Roundup Ready” (as in “Roundup” the pesticide). I too wonder how much of that pesticide makes it into our food. I won’t do any protesting. Usually there’s a lot of ‘earth-worshipping’ types there. Just not my style, but this issue is not just a lefty concern.

If I’m understanding you correct, I agree. I see pesticides, gmos hf cornsyrip etc that are modified or used or added to our food but unnatural to our body’s system of breaking down and using nutrients as some corps and businesses way of killing off their customers. I’d justlike clear info so i can make wise choices.

I had words with Breyer’s ice cream. recently their slogan for decades was “all natural” they now go by Breyer’s frozen deserts - because they claim there taste testers prefer their new products with corn syrup. So I no longer buy Breyers even thought hey are maintainign a few flavors without corn syrup.

Whether you think GMO foods are a threat to health or not, they should be labeled so that those who care can make the choice.

Foods need to be labeled GMO? Just about everything you eat has been genetically modified at some point in time. Do you want that labeled on everything you buy? Seems meaningless to me, but I'm sure you have your emotions,...er, I mean reasons.

The FDA only requires labeling if a food raises questions related to nutrition or safe use. People who understand the science involved are still waiting for those legitimate questions about the differing nutritional content and safety of GMO food. There's a lot of noise, but no there, there.

Beyond that though, labeling mandates based solely on an alleged consumers’ ‘right to know,’ rather than on a product’s measurable characteristics, is in violation of the Constitution.

You are not allowed to demonize a product, or to create fear about a product, unless you can prove that there is a problem with the nutrition or safety of that product. But that's exactly what you want to do even though you have absolutely nothing to support you. Thank goodness more rational people are in charge.

Here's a suggestion: buy your neighbors a subscription to health news or whatever magazine suits your style. What we don't need is your food judgements imposed on everyone.

I’m not the one fretting.

I packed the food because I realize some nutrition is better then none.

My concern about our food no longer being simply the way it was designed to be, is not silly or unfounded.

I just wondered the source of the prodcuts as I packed them and the quality and wondered were we supplying foods that may sustain life but slowly snuff it another way.

I would like to help people in ways that is not hindering them in others. IE: save their life today so they are sick with some illness not too far down the road.

I answer to God. We all are gonna die of some thing. I don’t fear death, it seems you do?

There are other options for your childrens schooling if you don’t like what their current school teaches.

I just want to know what’s in the box - everything from growing to packaging. then I can make an informed decision.

Just as I stated above about Breyer’s “all natural” ice cream changing to breyers frozen desert since they now add corn syrup. They informed me on the box, I asked them questions and was able to adjust my purchsaing as I saw needed.

How is it in the best interests of a corporation to kill off paying customers?

It's not. No one thing is killing anyone off. It's accumulations of toxins that is at issue. Monsanto, Merk, Phizer, Big Corn, et al are all contributors to ill health in America. I understand they are all trying to make a buck and have no beef with that. But when they do it at the expense of un-informed customers while knowingly understanding what they do is a net negative, then it is objectively wrong because they are perpetrating fraud upon others. Certainly folks can educate themselves and buy locally, organic, etc. However, when you have the government and big companies telling you "this is good for you" when it isn't, it's a tough row to hoe to have true health (and by that I mainly mean immuno-health). Heck even the "trusted experts" are dead wrong on many health related issues. You probably know more about nutrition than your MD since he probably took just one class in med school on nutrition.

Take for example my recent visit to Disney's Magic Kingdom. Easily 75% of the people there were at least chubby. A good 50% were obese with a good chunk (pun intended) of them morbidly obese. My knee-jerk reaction is to think all these people are lazy and slothish. And as we all know obesity can impose a bevy of health issues under the surface. But, upon reflection, I tend to lean towards their obesity not being completely their fault. Folks are bombarded with incorrect information on a daily basis. For example saturated fat is bad for you, or calories in equal calories out. Both supposedly common knowledge facts are patently false. It's this type of agenda driven information that is killing Americans. Don't get me started on the Cancer Industry.

"So, pal, what's the answer?", you might ask. The answer is to eat fundamentally just as you would think fundamentally concerning philosophy. Try to eat as little sugar as you can "see" because there's a lot more lurking out there than you may be aware of - same with grains. People have to also realize that what they put ON their skin is just about the same as eating it. Folks need to ask themselves "would I eat that" before they slather this or that thing on their skin. Eating well is about moderate intake of foods from the animal, plant, insect, algae, and fungus kingdoms. It's not too terribly difficult to understand God's intention for us to eat a bit of everything.

thank you numberonepal - your wording is better then mine.

Over my almost 20 years a massage therapist I’ve see numerous people with structural and internal and even emotion/mind issues all in part due to food and other life sustaining and or lifestyle choices.

I’ve seen folks who chose to get organs removed rather than try doing a cleanse and changing their eating. folks get joint replacements rather than make changes to try to reduce some weight on those joints or stretching I demonstrated that would help them at home to reduce the tension of ligaments from over exercising and not need massage etc or live in pain - yes over exercise is a growing problem to - leading to muscle tears and joint issues. More health care dollars “needed” for over doing a supposed “good thing” like exercise.

I agree it’s hard to change some habits, and we are all entitled to our choices but when personal choices lead to increase in my taxes or insurance, which I read may likely go up even more, it’s hard to just sit by and do nothing.

I just want to know what’s in the box - everything from growing to packaging. then I can make an informed decision.

That's easy, find a group of like-minded people on the internet and use community-sourced information.

They informed me on the box,

There's no reason for the government to require any information on the box because that will just spur bribes of politicians by rent-seeking corporations. You can't fix that by your dinky protest and calls to your politician. What needs to happen is ending the government monopoly on "food safety" and nutrition that they do such a terrible job at.

You can't fix political corruption in overreaching, oversized government by making it bigger.

When no one has the answer to the important questions, you know that the answers are not good. We already know that the pesticides and fungicides eventually work their way into the drinking water because rural farmland usually has their own wells. Round-up may not be as harmful as some of the other pesticides that are sprayed on the crops. I don’t know about that, either.
