Russia Warns Obama: Global War Over “Bee Apocalypse” Coming Soon
Russia bans all GM corn imports; EU may also ban Monsanto GMO in wake of shocking cancer findings
So Russia has been the first country to challange the dogma that GMO is a force for good, I wonder if any other countries will follow suit?
A lot of the anger is coming from a report that confirmed what people here have been saying [...]
The shocking minutes relating to President Putin’s meeting this past week with US Secretary of State John Kerry reveal the Russian leaders “extreme outrage” over the Obama regimes continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing “bee apocalypse” that the Kremlin warns “will most certainly” lead to world war.
According to these minutes, released in the Kremlin today by the Ministry [...]
One-Third of U.S. Honeybee Colonies Died Last Winter, Threatening Food Supply
Nearly one in three commercial honeybee colonies in the United States died or disappeared last winter, an unsustainable decline that threatens the nation’s food supply.
Multiple factors — pesticides, fungicides, parasites, viruses and malnutrition — are believed to cause the losses, which were officially announced today by a consortium of academic researchers, beekeepers and Department of Agriculture scientists.

Please Europeans sign this petition!!! It is very important. Monsanto wants to rule Europe too! In Estonia we have 6500 sorts of seeds. When EU will sign this legislation out of 6000 seeds of 6500 will be illegal!!!!!!!! We can do it together!!!!!!!! If someone can pin this please do it!
We will not stand for cronyism. We will not stand for poison. That’s why we March Against Monsanto.
See What are solutions we advocate:
Do you know that it has been reported: two hundred and seventy thousand Indian farmers have committed suicide since Monsanto entered the Indian seed market.
Record numbers of people in America are now growing their own food.
Everyone of you can make videos like she did and get people to join.
“Genetic engineering in agriculture has disappointed many people who once had hopes for it.”
As in: the party’s over, turn out the lights.
Bittman explains: “…genetic engineering, or, more properly, transgenic engineering – in which a gene, usually from another species of plant, bacterium or animal, is inserted into a plant in the hope of positively changing its nature – has been disappointing.”
As if this weren’t enough, Bittman spells it out more [...]
As details emerge about the Texas fertilizer plant that was the site of Wednesday’s fatal explosion and fire, a few tidbits can be gleaned from a 2007 lawsuit that the plant’s owners filed against agribusiness giant Monsanto Co. MON +1.08%
The suit, filed as a potential class action in U.S. District Court for the western district of Texas, claimed that Monsanto had artificially inflated prices for its herbicide Roundup through anti-competitive actions. The suit did not relate [...]

Study reveals GMO corn to be highly toxic
A leaked study examining genetically-modified corn reveals that the lab-made alternative to organic crops contains a startling level of toxic chemicals.
An anti-GMO website has posted the results of an education-based consulting company’s comparison of corn types, and the results reveal that genetically modified foods may be more hazardous than once thought.
The study, the 2012 [...]

It’s unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to gain exclusive control over the seeds of life – the source of our food. They’re trying to patent away varieties of our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them [...]

This isn’t a leak. It isn’t a timid flow. It’s a flood.
I’m talking about about the criticism of Monsanto’s so-called science of genetically-engineered food.
For the past 20 years, independent researchers have been attacking Monsanto science in various ways, and finally the NY Times has joined the crowd.
But it’s the way Mark Bittman, lead food columnist for the Times magazine, does it that really the crashes the whole [...]
The “Monsanto Protection Act” is the name opponents of the Farmer Assurance Provision have given to this terrifying piece of policy, and it’s a fitting moniker given its shocking content.
President Barack Obama signed a spending bill, HR 933, into law on Tuesday that includes language that has food and consumer advocates and organic farmers up in arms over their contention that the so-called “Monsanto Protection Act” is a giveaway to corporations that was [...]
Demand a Veto!!!
This past week Congress succeeded in passing Section 735, aka the Monsanto Protection Act, in the Continuing Resolution spending bill. Once again, Monsanto and the biotech industry have used their lobbying power to undermine your basic rights.
Please sign this petition to President Obama and tell him to veto HR 933 and the Monsanto Protection Act. Then contact Congress and tell them you are outraged. With the Senate [...]
We regret to inform you, but late last week Congress succeeded in passing Section 735, aka the Monsanto Protection Act, in the Continuing Resolution spending bill – HR 933. Once again, Monsanto and the biotech industry have used their lobbying power to undermine your basic rights.

America has been decimated by the breakdown of the separation of powers between different branches of government. For example, the executive branch is negotiating laws in secret – and grabbing powers –without telling Congress.
And life-and-death decisions about who the government labels an “enemy combatant” and assassinatesare being kept away from the judges altogether.
At the same time, government agencies like the FDA go to great lengths to cover up [...]
Should Congress approve a proposition included in an agriculture bill up for vote this week, biotech companies like the Monsanto Company could win yet another victory in Washington.
The US House of Representatives is expected to weigh in on the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for Fiscal year 2013 this week, and included within the act lies the “Farmer Assurance Provision,” a small subsection that has so far earned opposition from hundreds of [...]

Agri-giant Monsanto, not satisfied with being one of the world’s largest agricultural corporations, is dragging hundreds of U.S. farmers into court over alleged copyright violations for repeated usage of the company’s patented seeds.
In a case that has surprised a lot of observers, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear one of these complaints on Feb. 19. That case, Bowman v. [...]
Launching a lawsuit against the very company that is responsible for a farmer suicide every 30 minutes, 5 million farmers are now suing Monsanto for as much as 6.2 billion euros (around 7.7 billion US dollars). The reason? As with many other cases, such as the ones that led certain farming regions to be known as the ‘suicide belt’, Monsanto has been reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with [...]

It has been more than four months now since the most comprehensive study evaluating the health risks associated with a lifetime of consuming genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) was published in a credible, peer-reviewed scientific journal. And to this day, the mainstream scientific community is still busy manufacturing lies about the study in an attempt to discredit it.
In case you missed it, a French study back in [...]

Labeling GMO foods is a good idea. But on the way to getting that accomplished, what will our food supply and topsoil be like? It’s likely by the time enough consumers catch on, it will be too late for a consumer boycott “tipping point” that’s supposed to bring the evil giant Monsanto to it’s knees.
All the labeling in the world won’t stop Monsanto from creating more [...]
This is the same man that was in charge of FDA policy when GMO’s were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety. He had been Monsanto’s attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA [and then] he became Monsanto’s Vice President and chief lobbyist. Now Obama made him the senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. He is now Obama’s food [...]

Once again the fight for GMO labeling has reignited with the introduction of a new GMO labeling bill, but this time in Washington. The “Label it Wa” campaign has already gained 350,000 signatures, and is finally headed to the Secretary of State’s office in Olympia for submission. As the movement comes during the same time that a New Mexico law calls for mandatory labeling of GMOs, it is obvious that [...]
The website of US-based biotech giant Monsanto boasts that the corporation qualifies as “a sustainable agriculture company”.
Given Monsanto’s legacy as a producer of the lethal defoliant Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, Southeast Asian agriculture would presumably beg to differ with this characterisation.
Sustainability is also not the first word that comes to mind when contemplating Monsanto’s policy of sowing the earth with genetically modified seeds that destroy soil and are designed with [...]
There’s an age-old tradition in Washington of making unpopular announcements when no one’s listening—like, you know, the days leading up to Thanksgiving. That’s when the Obama administration sneaked a tasty dish to the genetically modified seed/pesticide industry.
This treat involves the unceremonious end of the Department of Justice’s antitrust investigation into possible anticompetitive practices in the US seed market, which it had begun in January 2010. It’s not hard to see why DOJ [...]

by JG Vibes, The Intel Hub:
In the past few years organic food has become a very serious priority for many Americans, much to the dismay of big agriculture industry forces.
One of the primary unspoken functions of the FDA is to prevent this kind of competition from threatening the entrenched companies who have special interest privileges through government relationships.
Since Monsanto dominates the food market worldwide and have many representatives appointed to high [...]

Environmentalists are warning that Mexico, the cradle of corn, risks damaging its staple if the government gives US firms the green light to plant genetically-modified maize in huge swaths of land.
The agriculture ministry is examining the possibility of allowing Monsanto, DuPont and Dow to plant GMO corn in 2.4 million hectares (six million acres) of land, but no decision has been taken yet.
“Every indication shows that a decision [...]
Grassroots organizations are going into grocery stores with their OWN labels and placing them on GMO products.
Take THAT Monsanto!
Here’s some pics of the campaign in action.
Some products that have no GMO’s are labeling so. It would be good if all products that do not contain GMO would label so. Then everyone would know if it is not labeled then it contains GMOs.
Check out Amy’s Kitchen products labeled NO GMOs.

While some anti-GMO legislation like Prop 37 was shot down through corporation-funded projects and deceptive campaign tactics, one county in Washington state was massively successful in establishing a landmark ruling against Monsanto and GMO crops as a whole.
The concerned citizens of San Juan County were able to pass what is known as Initiative Measure No. 2012-4, whichactually bans the growth of genetically modified organismswithin the county.
And it doesn’t [...]

GMO Food Producers “Voluntarily Consult”, But There Is NO Real Safety Testing
Many people assume that the Food and Drug Administration tests genetically engineered foods for safety.
But as USA Today reports:
Q: Does the FDA test these foods before they’re allowed on the market?
A: No. Instead there is a voluntary consultation process. Genetically engineered foods are overseen by the FDA, but there is no approval process. Foods are presumed to be safe unless the FDA [...]
Even If You Are Boycotting the Presidential Election, Vote Yes on Proposition 37
Some smart people say that we shouldn’t vote tomorrow. See this, this, this and this.
We believe that voting for a third party presidential candidate is a valuable act. Even though California has more than 10% of the American population, California will obviously go to Obama, and so there is no reason for Californians to worry about swaying the election. So we believe that Californians should definitely vote [...]

Misuse of a United States government seal can lead to a $250,000 fine, twenty years in prison, and three years of supervised release — unless you’re a campaign organization funded by major corporations like Monsanto. In a move completely ignored by the mainstream media (many of which have financial ties to such corporations), the anti-GMO labeling No on 37 Committee paid for and disseminated a physical piece [...]
