As GMOs fill grocery store shelves at an alarming rate, more people are growing aware of the health risks associated with genetically altered organisms. People are growing tired of this disease-promoting, genetically manipulated food. They are sick of controlling multinational corporations like Monsanto dictating their food supply. That’s why on May 25th 2013, rallies across the world are organizing, from Australia to Germany, from New York to California. A March against Monsanto is expected to take place.Join a march against Monsanto rally on May 25th in your city:
Monsanto (ALEC Corporate member) using legislation to manipulate the market and increase corporate profits.http://occupy-monsanto.com/tag/march/Monsanto Protection Act awakening the republicThis new “Monsanto Protection Act” signed on March 26th, 2013, gives executive powers to the USDA that grant permission to companies like Monsanto to sell its genetically modify seed to farmers without any judicial accountability. The provision is written in a way to assure farmers a profitable and safe venture with GMO seed, but in reality, this law is designed to grant GMO producers like Monsanto legal immunity from the health problems their products will cause down the road.This provision removes the judicial system from the picture, allowing Monsanto to dominate agriculture, selling genetically altered seed to farmers and damaging human genes – all without any real justice.U.S. Senator and family farmer Jon Tester, spoke out on the Senate floor, “The United States Congress is telling the Agricultural Department that even if a court tells you that you’ve failed to follow the right process and tells you to start over, you must disregard the court’s ruling and allow the crop to be planted anyway. Not only does this ignore the constitutional idea of separation of powers, but it also lets genetically modified crops take hold across this country, even when a judge finds it violates the law,” Tester said.
