Reminder: March on Monsanto Today May 25th — Everywhere!

Reminder: March on Monsanto Today May 25th — Everywhere! post image

Today, Saturday, May 25th there will be a march, world wide, showing opposition to what Monsanto and similar companies are doing to the food supply and the earth. Go here to find a location near you. This is a critically important event that will show these unscrupulous companies that we mean to stop them in their tracks. Let’s take back our planet! Please help if you can.

There are many reasons to March

  • Research has clearly shown that toxins in genetically modified plants may lead to serious effects in mammals.
  • It is now common knowledge that the FDA is a revolving door of Monsanto executives and lawyers. This conflict of interest clearly illustrates the reasons why our government supports this biotech company in spite of public and scientific outcry.
  • The Monsanto Protection Act passed through congress.  This bill effectively protects Monsanto and bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
  • We need to stop the giant spider reach of Monsanto into every farming community in the world. Heritage farming is at risk and our small family farms suffer.
  • No one should own the right to seeds. This goes against all the laws of nature.
  • Monsanto genetically modified seeds are dangerous to the people using them and dangerous to the earth.
  • The use of Monsanto’s seeds requires massage amounts of pesticides (glyphosates) to be used and this chemical is totally destructive to the soil.
What Can You Do?
  • Vote with your dollars — buy organic and boycott Monsanto owned companies that use GMOs in their products.
  • Work to get labeling of GMOs so we know what we are eating and can make informed choices.
  • Support unbiased research into the long term health effects of GMOs.
  • Use social media to hold Monsanto executives and Monsanto supporting politicians accountable for their actions.
  • Become active on this issue. We need people from everywhere to write, boycott, teach others and never let this issue off the radar screen.
  • Join the March on May 25th! We need you there! We need to do something NOW to protect our children’s future on this earth!

    I attended the March Against Monsanto in Ann Arbor, Michigan. To me it was a bit disappointing as I did not see a lot of constructive good come from it. The organizer was arrested (without comment as to why) and the crowd turned their attention to harassing the police instead of using their time to educate spectators about the dangers of GMOs. The lack of alternate leadership left a disorganized mob mentality (just as the police knew it would) so the momentum of the cause of march dissipated and it was over in less than an hour. The only thing that saved me from total disappointment was I was able to effectively explain to a few curious bystanders the downside and dangers of GMO foods and the motives and actions of their creating corporation. Well, I guess I provoked some thoughts into a few otherwise clueless people who said they would research the topic further so it was not a total waste of time. We need to focus more in organizing ourselves to teach people to actively hit the GMO producers in their pocket books by avoiding purchase of anything other than whole foods, period. We need them to actively put their money where our beliefs are to effectively send our message. As long as lazy, complacent people eat their processed, convenient substandard foods they corporate chain wins. You know, like how the civil rights advocates of the past organized people to walk and carpool to work instead of using the bus systems to hit the owners in their wallets so they could finally obtain equal rights in getting a seat on the bus after a long days work instead of having to stand because they were not the right color to sit when seats became scarce. Grass roots is definitely the way to win this battle, but we need a more structured method to get our movement better organized to be effective.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that the local press turned its back on the event and nothing to my knowledge hit the news. Monsanto appeared to be far better organized than the movement against them.

    I agree about the press. Considering that this was a rally happening across the US and other countries I hoped to see something about it in the paper & online news.

      @Carol,
      Than you for your thoughtful comments. In spite of the driving rain and cold weather here on Long Island, we did have a March and it was covered by the local news. We do have a large population of people who are aware of the problems in the food supply here and a local news team that is supportive.
