I'm sorry, but this is awesome. to me. kind of.  

 

Illegal...but it reminds me of the boondock saints.  Might not be the best way to spread the word about GMO's, and it does affect the farmers livelihood...so there is definitely alot of controversy packed into this incident.  I can see where advocates of organic crops would be upset by this because it's not the best way of fighting GMO and Monsanto.  But on the other hand, there are so many stories of entire fields being burnt in order to get rid of the plague that is GMO crops.  Those may have been government authorized though. 

 

Also farmers are much worse off using 'biotech' crops because they have to pay royalties and Monsanto practically owns them and their field.  Not to mention the herbicides they have to purchase which crops are now becoming resistant to.  Hence why agent orange corn is going to be introduced using the same defoliant that was used in vietnam

 

So...you decide

 

 

 

Oregon Department of Agriculture Director Katy Coba issued a statement about the sabotage.

 

“To my knowledge, this is the first time someone has deliberately taken the cowardly step of uprooting high value plants growing in our state. Regardless of how one feels about biotechnology, there is no justification for committing these crimes and it is not the kind of behavior we expect to see in Oregon agriculture,” Coba said.

GMO & Pesticide Experiments in Hawaii: The Poisoning of Paradise

 

Kids taken ill at School

The spraying of pesticides by Syngenta near Waimea Canyon Middle school has been suspected in causing children and teachers to become sick on several occasions between 2006 and 2008. In one incident at least 10 children collapsed and were sent to the hospital.An investigation was launched to find out why. Syngenta has denied that their spraying of pesticides was the culprit. Instead they claim that the plant "Stinkweed" was to blame for people becoming sick, not their GMO fields or use of pesticides that borders right up to the school. In speaking with some of the locals in Waimea, no one recalls stinkweed ever being an issue in the community.

Monsanto has a map for conquering the world and Mexico is in the center of it.


 

More than sixty thousand farmers and supporters from workers' and environmental organizations marched through Mexico City on Jan. 31 to avoid this fate. It was one of the largest mobilizations to date to reject the Monsanto game plan, and it's no coincidence that it took place in the heart of the Aztec Empire.

 

Olegario Carrillo, president of Mexican small farm organization UNORCA, addressed the crowd in the central plaza, "During the last 30 years, successive governments have tried to wipe us out. They've promoted measures to take away our lands, our water, our seeds, plant and animal varieties, traditional knowledge, markets. But we refuse to disappear."

"For peasant farmers, GMOs represent looting and control," he stated.


 

The powerful corporation, the largest seed seller in the world, desperately wants permission for unrestricted planting of its GM corn in Mexico. If GM corn is planted in Mexico, it will accelerate the transfer of acreage and water rights from small farmers to corporate GM corn cultivation, thus transferring control of the national food supply as well. Widespread open planting of GM corn will lead to contamination of native varieties.  This is a scientific fact. Mexico has already detected many native cornfields contaminated by GM corn during the period when open planting was prohibited—a strong indication of the impossibility of controlling open pollination between native and GM varieties.

This has huge implications. Mexico is the center of origin of corn, and the home of hundreds of varieties developed by indigenous communities over centuries. To lose in situ preservation of these varieties is to lose a wealth of agro-diversity that has major importance for sustainable food production, and to eventually become dependent on Monsanto and other large corporations to feed ourselves.

 

For the communities that refuse to give up using native seed, the final assault is genetic contamination. GM corn contaminates nearby fields. The irony of this invasion is that once native corn is shown to have been contaminated (and thus ruined) by GM corn, Monsanto can come in with lawsuits claiming that its product is being used without required usage fees.

"We reject that the government sacrifices consumers and small farmers to support transnational corporations that produce GM seed and agro-toxins. We the farmers, not the transnationals, are the ones who feed the population."

What a freaking joke.  Thanks for sharing this gladiatoro.  These shenanigans are so beyond shady and corrupt it's sickening

 

 

 

"Scientific studies confirm that GM contamination is unavoidable once GM crops are grown in a region," explains the Earth Open Source report GMO Myths and Truths: An evidence-based examination of the claims made for the safety and efficacy of genetically modified crops. "'Coexistence' rapidly results in widespread contamination of non-GM crops ... through cross-pollination, spread of GM seed by farm machinery, and inadvertent mixing during storage."

Whole Foods has openly stated that they sell GM foods; where am I supposed to shop?! Is it ONLY Whole Foods (and Kroger, Safeway, Walmart etc) or do we know if this applies to ALL stores, both 'organic' and not? Not even being facetious here, but I look at corn with horror now...whether I'm at the farmers market or at the local corner grocery store. I am also scared to eat any meat or poultry, let alone the grains those animals consume. I am developing severe phobias of entire food groups and finding myself not eating at all, if faced with a questionable food. This is a new form of disordered eating.

I grow my own herbs in the tiny garden space I created on my inner city apartment patio, I shop at local farmers markets, I THOUGHT I was doing right by grocery shopping at Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and the like. What is an urban person to eat, with our food sources unknowingly being infiltrated by GM foods? Any answers or responses to this query are greatly appreciated.

Look for the Non GMO Project Verified symbol on the packaging.  And when it's possible, purchase foods labeled organic.  Many food items i've seen at whole foods have both symbols, which is even better.  

 

But yes, when i first learned about GMO's a little over a year ago, i ate organic, non GMO blue corn chips for like a week and that was it.  Cause i was so scared to learn about all the shit that i'd been eating over the years.  But now i've discovered a whole host of foods that are labeled with the non GMO Project Verified/Organic label.  

 

This genetic engineering is the single most dangerous/corrupt event involving food in the history of this planet.  And since this is the only planet we and our future children will have....we really have to spread the word about this or we will be irreversibly fucked.

Whom is responsible for the regulatory standards for NON GMO foods in our grocery stores? The FDA? (Ha!) And if Whole Foods has already admitted to selling foods that are GMO, without telling us that they have been all along, and without telling us WHAT those products are, how can we be sure those products aren't fruit and vegetables, or the labeled NON GMO foods? I am under the impression that the NON GMO label is bullshit. PLEASE tell me I'm wrong (or right). I am really tired of being duped.

Yes, it's the FDA.  And also individual states have passed laws forbidding local laws requiring GM labels.  I don't know what you mean by the Non GMO label being bullshit.  False labeling is illegal.

 

And not buying boxed and bagged processed foods is a great way to avoid most GM foods.

The FDA is not independent of Big Ag, hence my statement, "I am under the impression that the NON GMO label is bullshit".

The Non-GMO Project Verified label isn't given by the FDA.  It's a non-profit organization, and companies want their label to appeal to those who are aware of the crap that is making it's way into our food.  At least this is how it is currently

As Biotech Seed Falters, Insecticide Use Surges In Corn Belt

 

"It appears that farmers have gotten part of the message: Biotechnology alone will not solve their rootworm problems. But instead of shifting away from those corn hybrids, or from corn altogether, many are doubling down on insect-fighting technology, deploying more chemical pesticides than before. Companies likeSyngenta or AMVAC Chemical that sell soil insecticides for use in corn fields are reporting huge increases in sales: 50 or even 100 percent over the past two years."

This is a FANTASTIC link!!! Thanks so much Onefatalgoose for starting this VERY important thread :) I haven't read all of it but I intend too...btw, I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned that vaccines are also VERY deadly & health compromising agents - just another weaponized 'medicine' concocted by the genocidal/ eugenics crazy "big pharma" industry with the sinister agenda to depopulate/ sterilize/ maim the world's population...there's even declassified info showing that HIV, syphilis & cancer virus' etc have been intentionally placed in some vaccines in the past...Indeed, in my personal experience, I can clearly remember that my acne began when I received a measles vaccine...it was my terrible western/ junk food/ processed food/ meat/ dairy diet/ junk drinks/ tap water/ fluoride tooth paste etc that enabled my acne to spiral waaay out of control...and the plethora of harsh toxic acne "treatments"/ "medicine" are what led to my eventual scarring...only going vegan - mostly raw, organic & wholefood/ superfood - has stopped my longstanding battle with acne...also, tea tree oil, lavender oil & sea salt wash helped stop the acne infection cycle....as for the scarring, well, I eventually conquered most of that too...but it's taken a good few years!!



PS There is a proven link between autism & vaccines!! I wouldn't take another vaccine and nor should anyone else, let alone children or babies!!!

"The international resistance against Monsanto and the genetic manipulation of the food supply has advanced to an all new level, with countless citizens around the world taking the fight online and partaking in the Monsanto Video Revolt grassroots movement. Though scheduled to officially take place on July 24th, we’ve seen thousands of citizens around the world upload their videos exposing Monsanto from as far away as Nigeria and Thailand."

Monsanto's method of "enhancing stress tolerance in plants and methods thereof" has already been accepted in the US and Europe. "This is the first time Section 3(d) has been used on plant patents, and its implications are farreaching," said environmentalist Vandana Shiva. This is also the first judgement citing Section 3(j), which specifies that plants and animals aren't patentable. 

 

But Shiva said that if the judgement is upheld, "Monsanto cannot do with climate resilient crops what it did with Bt cotton." Critics such as Shiva blame Bt cotton for the ills in the cotton belt, including high cost of the seed, which they argue is one of the reasons for farmer suicides. Shiva said she is ready to intervene in case Monsanto appeals in the Supreme Court.

Haven't read through every post but if you have a smartphone there's an APP called "True Food" which will tell you brands that are GMO and which brands are safe but also more apps to look into here http://www.organicau...-gmo-month.html
