Monsanto – The Agricultural Poster Child – Help Us Fight Their Injustices

Monsanto AgriculturalMonsanto The Agricultural Poster Child

Help Us Fight The Injustices

 

 

Monsanto isn’t the biggest or the worst company in the world. But this St. Louis biotech giant has become the agricultural poster child for all that’s wrong with our industrial food and farming system.  With approx 21,000 employees in 66 countries and revenues exceeding 15 billion, they are indeed a big shot in the industry.

As was stated in a recent article that I read, this “monopolizer of seeds is the poster child for an industry that is the source of at least one-third of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.  And is largely responsible for the depletion of soil, water and biodiversity. Not to mention the company’s marginalization — and sometimes terrorization — of millions of small farmers.”

“Since the early 20th century, Monsanto has marketed highly toxic products that have contaminated the environment and permanently sickened or killed thousands of people around the world. In a rare exception, Monsanto was recently ordered to pay $46.5 million to compensate victims of its PCB poisoning. Sometimes the company settles out of court, to avoid having to admit to any “wrongdoing.”  “But for the most part, thanks to the multinational’s powerful influence over U.S. politicians, Monsanto has been able to poison with impunity.”

I am thrilled with what is going to take place. It’s happening in The Hague, Netherlands on October 15th and 16th of this year.  The International City of Peace and Justice panel, a distinguished panel of international judges, will hear testimony from witnesses that will be represented by legitimate lawyers, who have been harmed by Monsanto.

In preparation for the citizens’ tribunal, and during witness testimony, the judges will consider six questions that are relevant. This isn’t just in relation to Monsanto either. It is about all companies involved in shaping the future of agriculture.  Read more about this, hopefully, game changing tribunal. Learn how you can support their efforts.

Never Give Up But Always Stick Together
A Winning Combo

1385282_10151665910376160_352375928_nNever give up. We are winning and starting to see the demise of corporate corruption the likes of Monsanto. The public is very powerful when we work together. Watch this – http://naturalsociety.com/victory-senate-to-kill-monsanto-protection-act-amid-outrage/

Continued exposure has had Germany tell the EU that it is banning GMO crops. El Salvador kicked Monsanto and their seeds out of their country. 65 nations are now labeling and 14 have banned GMO’d crops. The dark act (deny American’s the right to know) HR 1599 passed the US House of Representatives. If you look at house members who voted in favor of the dark act you see that those individuals received an average of 3 times as much money from big ag as those that voted against it. Communicate with your senators. Tell them enough is enough. http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

Monsanto’s stock has gone down. Monsanto is going to be tried at the international criminal court in 2016 for charges of ecocide and crimes against humanity and nature. This is a class action suit organized by Millions against Monsanto, Organic Consumers Association and many other groups.

Supporting Drug Free Meat

Antibiotics used in PigsHelp me help all of us.  We are all under the threat from antibiotic-resistant superbugs, making us vunerable to common, once treatable infections. A remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used by the meat and poultry industry so that factory farm animals can grow faster and survive crowded and unsanitary conditions.  Support meat without drugs http://www.meatwithoutdrugs.org/#watch. Lets unite and stop the abuse before it is too late. Tell your supermarkets and local farmers, “drug free meat for me!”   We can be the catalysts to turn the tide on this abuse. We can show our support for companies that don’t take our health for granted.

This is another must see quick video compliments of Chipotle:

I just signed this petition — will you?

The United States Supreme Court just dealt yet another staggering blow to our democracy by giving the green light for the wealthiest Americans to pour vast sums of money into electing their hand-picked candidates.

supreme_corporate_justice_180If the Supreme Court is going to consistently side with corporations and the wealthy at the expense of our democracy, they might as well give up their pretense to impartiality. So CREDO is going to send robes with the logos of the big corporations to the “justices” who voted for Citizens United and this new terrible decision.

If you want to add your name to the card they’ll deliver along with the robes, click here to sign the petition.

Seeds of Death? What you don’t know can hurt you.

IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)…

killer tomato

chemical companies were as out of control as they really are. The reports are coming in and it isn’t pretty. We are killing our food supply. We are killing the right to a healthy future for our children. If we don’t step up to the plate and demand this atrocity stop, we will pay the price later. We must wake up now and get involved. Stop buying anything that contains ingredients that have been genetically modified. Buy organic. If you think organic is too expensive, I guarantee that you will spend much more later on when you are fighting the diseases and illness that you will experience as a result of eating GMO foods.

The Monsanto Protection Act is back and we need you now more than ever!

This past March, Monsanto succeeded in sneaking the controversial rider into a

Holy Supermarket OVERLOAD!

Posted in Food Addiction on 31.08.13

Share

groceriesDid you know that in 1971, a typical supermarket carried just under 8,000 items. In 2009, there were more than 48,000!!!! Let’s get back to basics and get rid of the processed foods that are harmful, containing GMO ingredients, oodles of salt and sugar and threaten the over-all health of civilization as we know it today. Support your local farmer and organic food merchant. Vote against processed foods by not giving these corporate conglomerates your hard earned cash. Think you can’t afford to buy organic? Think again! What you save on medical expenses you can spend on good, clean, healthy eating and that includes organic foods.

Join Coach D today and become “A Voice For Change”.

Knowledge is Power Series – 71 Senators voted against your right to know if the food you are purchasing is genetically modified.

Posted in GMOs, Knowledge is Power Series, Political America on 02.07.13

71 Senators voted against your right to know if the food you are purchasing is genetically modified.



If you believe you have the right to know whether or not the food you are purchasing is genetically modified, then you need to get these Senators out of office. They have voted against our right to know. The Organic Consumers Association has reported that 90% of consumers want to know if the food they are purchasing is genetically modified. So this means that 71 Senators voted against 90% of the people that voted them into office. I thought we voted them into office to protect us and act on our behalf? What gives? What happened to our Tenth Amendment right, the right of individual states to protect the health, safety and welfare of its citizens and local businesses? The bill they voted against was the 2013 Farm Bill that would have guaranteed states the right to enact mandatory GMO labeling laws. Specifically it is known as The Sanders Amendment (S.AMDT.965).

Why would these Senators do this? All we want is “to know” what kind of food we are eating. It is like labeling organic vs non-organic. We have the right to know how our food is being produced. It is that simple. Could it be that Monsanto donated almost $6 million dollars to the agriculture lobby? Could it be that almost $1 million dollars of that money went to political candidates that include some of these 71 Senators listed below? Hummm here we go again, the fox is guarding the hen house; the wolves are wearing sheep’s clothing!
Let’s step up to the plate people. We 90% have a right to know. The Sanders amendment is simple. We aren’t asking for much. Let’s not forget that Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the chair of the Agriculture Committee, received $739,926 in campaign contributions from Big Agriculture in 2012. Let’s also remember that Bill Gates who is an advocate of GMO foods, is also a Monsanto shareholder. As stated in the recent Organic Consumer Association article, “there is plenty of evidence refuting the claim that GMO crops can solve world hunger, improve nutrition or survive drought. The focus on efficiency over health and safety, when we’re talking about our food, should be enough to set off alarm bells. Claiming efficiency, whether it’s a valid claim or not, as a reason to trample states’ rights to make their own decisions regarding food and agriculture, should have us thinking “slippery slope.”. We just want to know. We have that right and should not be snowed over by self-serving politicians and greedy, power hungry corporations.
These are the 71 Senators in alphabetical order, that voted against GMO labeling.

Alexander (R-TN), Ayotte (R-NH), Baldwin (D-WI), Barrasso (R-WY), Baucus (D-MT), Blunt (R-MO), Boozman (R-AR), Brown (D-OH), Burr (R-NC), Carper (D-DE), Casey (D-PA), Chambliss (R-GA), Coats (R-IN), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Coons (D-DE), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Cowan (D-MA), Crapo (R-ID), Cruz (R-TX), Donnelly (D-IN), Durbin (D-IL), Enzi (R-WY), Fischer (R-NE), Franken (D-MN), Gillibrand (D-NY), Graham (R-SC), Grassley (R-IA), Hagan (D-NC), Harkin (D-IA), Hatch (R-UT), Heitkamp (D-ND), Heller (R-NV), Hoeven (R-ND), Inhofe (R-OK), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (D-SD), Johnson (R-WI), Kaine (D-VA), Kirk (R-IL), Klobuchar (D-MN), Landrieu (D-LA), Lee (R-UT), Levin (D-MI), McCain (R-AZ), McCaskill (D-MO), McConnell (R-KY), Menendez (D-NJ), Moran (R-KS), Nelson (D-FL), Paul (R-KY), Portman (R-OH), Pryor (D-AR), Risch (R-ID), Roberts (R-KS), Rubio (R-FL), Scott (R-SC), Sessions (R-AL), Shaheen (D-NH), Shelby (R-AL), Stabenow (D-MI), Thune (R-SD), Toomey (R-PA), Udall (D-CO), Vitter (R-LA), Warner (D-VA), Warren (D-MA), Wicker (R-MS)

Beware of Wolves In Sheep’s Clothes





IDKT (I didn’t know that) … there was a trade group that was made up of food and seed companies the likes of DuPont, Monsanto, Syngenta, BASF, Bayer Crop Science and Dow Agro Science. I didn’t know that they formed the Council for Biotechnology Information and call themselves a trade group that goes out and lobbies against people and states that want to pass laws that support the labeling of all GMO’d foods. Shame on our government and the very people that we elect into office for allowing this to happen. I know that America is the land of the free and home of the brave but really is it in our best interest to support these trade groups and/or allow them to dictate what we can and cannot know about the food we eat??? Just how free are we if this is taking place??? Apparently, New York had proposed a GMO labeling bill and it was not passed due to intense lobbying from this council. This is like the fox guarding the hen house. Truly we must stay informed and in the know and beware of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

As I was reading recently in Take Part, “If germinated and grown into a plant, one bean can eventually produce the seeds for countless future plants—a return that grows exponentially over multiple seasons. But thanks to the strict patent control practiced by seed companies like Monsanto, farmers have to pay for new seeds, for a new license to use the GMO technology, every year—or face litigation for
