World March Against Monsanto

May 25, 2013

www.helpfreetheearth.com

Today's global "March Against Monsanto" called for the end to dictatorship over seeds, over life, over food and over our freedom.

Two million people in 436 cities in 52 countries around the world marched in protest against seed giant Monsanto.

PEOPLE'S WAR AGAINST MONSANTO

We need to reclaim our food supply NOW by starting a grassroots revolution against evil multinational corporations like Monsanto.

1. Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods (GMO's) can lead to the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.

2. In the United States, the FDA, is dominated by ex-Monsanto executives which explains the absence of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM products.

3. Monsanto recieves corporate subsidies and political favoritism.

4. President Obama and the U.S. Congress passed the “Monsanto Protection Act” that bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.

5. The Senate overwhelmingly rejected a bill that would allow states to label genetically modified foods.

6. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to expand its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patents over seeds and genetics.

7. Monsanto's GM seeds have caused the collapse of the world's bee population.

8. Most corn, soybean and cotton crops grown in the United States today have been genetically modified.

9. Monsanto's genetically modified seeds are floating from field to field and contaminating traditional farmer's crops.

10. GM crops have increased, not decreased pesticide use

THE GOOD NEWS

State legislatures in Vermont and Connecticut moved ahead this month with votes to make food companies declare genetically modified ingredients on their packages. And supermarket retailer Whole Foods Markets Inc. has said that all products in its North American stores that contain genetically modified ingredients will be labeled as such by 2018. What? 2018???
