Monsanto is trying to monopolize the world’s food supply with their sustainable patents on seeds. Monsanto is the bully in the agricultural world. They have taken farmers to court to sue them for their land because one of their seeds blew in the wind onto the farmers land! Monsanto has their own police force that doesn’t need your permission to go on your land or go through your storage bins. Furthermore, they are not afraid to sue you if one of their patent protected seeds blows onto your land! Farmers lose with Monsanto.
I heard nothing about the Monsanto protest on television on the mainstream media. I had to go to the internet to see coverage of the event. It was pouring down rain here in Iowa where there was a scheduled march in Des Moines and Iowa City (neither of which are farming towns) but there wasn’t one word from the media about it.
What’s wrong with this picture? Where is the mainstream media on Monsanto having special protection from court prosecution if their genetically modified food is proven to be dangerous? If Monsanto is so confident with their product then why do they not label their goods?
Thousands perhaps even millions of people marched in protest against Monsanto on May 25, 2013 in the United States and around the world and there wasn’t a peep about it on the mainstream media. Not one peep about Monsanto and their genetically modified foods. Not one mention of Monsanto‘s crimes against humanity. Nothing about their part in the creation of Agent Orange, a chemical used during the Vietnam war that killed American soldiers years after exposure, including my father.
Monsanto is protected by the mainstream media and the federal government!
‘Monsanto Protection Act’ might be repealed in Senate
“Monsanto has been afforded their own protection under the so-called Monsanto Protection Act signed into law earlier this year caused such an outrage that people around the world are planning to protest the biotech company later this month. Now a United States senator is expected to try and repeal that law.”
“Deep within the nearly 600-page spending bill, Section 735 includes language that lets biotech companies that experiment with genetically-engineered and genetically-modified crops test and sell lab-made products even if legal action is taken against them.”
I do not trust Monsanto with our food supply. I do not think that our livestock should be fed the genetically modified plant. You ever hear the saying “you are what you eat”. I I do not wish to be a piece of property owned by Monsanto.
Roundup is a insecticide made by Monsanto. Do they own your yard just because you might use their product? Does Monsanto think they own the people or livestock that ingests their patented product?
Monsanto has called Section 735 “a positive step to ensure US farmers and our food chain are shielded from supply disruptions caused by litigation over procedural issues unrelated to sound science or the safety of biotech crops.” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) told Politico earlier this year that he co-authored the language of the amendment along with Monsanto. Previously, Blunt received $64,250 from Monsanto to go towards his campaign committee between 2008 and 2012.
Mainstream Media MIA at March Against Monsanto
The media was all over the “pink slime” but say nothing about Monsanto or the outrage that consumers and environmentalists were expressing dissatisfaction with the systems blatant government protection of the company. The Federal Drug and Food Administration is headed by a Monsanto associate! All the information is in these videos if you choose to watch them.
