This is a Call to Action for a
Non-Hierarchical Occupation of Monsanto Everywhere

Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and unlabeled GMOs. Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products.

Occupy the GMO Candidate – Oct. 17, 2012

GMO Candidate web Occupy the GMO Candidate   Oct. 17, 2012 Protest Occupy Monsanto Mitt Romney GMO Labeling gmo GCU Field Agents Demonstration Decontamination Event Decentralized Candidate Barack Obama

On Wednesday, October 17, one month after the commencement of the Occupy Monsanto Global Week of Action, we are calling for Occupy Monsanto GCU Field Agents across America to stage Decontamination Events at your nearest campaign office of Romney or Obama. For GCU Field Agents located outside of America, we suggest staging another demonstration at your nearest Monsanto facility or symbol of American toxic agriculture.

Why? Both presidential candidates are avoiding the GMO issue because both candidates take money from Monsanto. Therefore its up to us to force them to take a position on GMOs.

Activism in all its forms is the best way to force political candidates to listen to the people. Signing petitions is activism-lite, while showing up at a campaign field office with signs, banners, megaphones, and staging a Decontamination Event is the type of activism that cannot be ignored.


Confirmed Decontamination Events:

+ Stand For No GMO’s at CANDIDATES OFFICES in Daytona Beach, Florida
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – San Francisco, CA
+ Occupy Robamney – Omaha, NE
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – Republican Party National Headquarters, Washington, DC
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – Democratic Party National Headquarters, Washington, DC


If you plan on taking part, please e-mail the time, date, and the address of the candidate’s Field Office to October17@Occupy-Monsanto.com and we’ll add it to the list above.

Atlanta’s Food Supply Rescue Coalition Holds March Calling for End to Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered Food System.

By Effe Slayer

Standing outside an Atlanta Kroger grocery store, food advocate Steven Wing reads lyrics to a crowd of protestors and curious shoppers.

“If you’re gonna play God with my food.
If you’re gonna play God and leave organic farmer’s screwed.
If you’re gonna play God with my decisions….
If you’re gonna play God I want a new religion.”

In a moment that is being referred to as “the food fight of the decade“, the lyrics to “Tell Us What You’re Growing“, written by an Arizona songwriter, Celia, couldn’t be more poignant.

The group of protesters is participating in the “Occupy Monsanto Global Day of Action”. They’re on a mission to raise awareness about lab-created genetically modified organisms (GMOs) within the food supply. With rally stops at five “Monsanto Points of Distribution” locations – Publix, Kroger, Home Depot, Whole Foods Market, and McDonald’s – the Occupy Monsanto Genetic Crimes Unit (GCU) declares each location a genetic crime scene for their sale of Monsanto’s toxic products.

“This is a decontamination zone”, declares Vince C. through a megaphone. He is dressed in a biohazard suit. “If you’ve been contaminated by Monsanto’s toxins, you’ll need to be tagged.” Shoppers are outfitted with special hospital wristbands to symbolize a health biohazard.

“There’s something wrong when the chemical manufacturer Monsanto, the same company that made Agent Orange, owns our commercial food supply”, says Food Supply Rescue Coalition‘s Jaye Crawford. Ms. Crawford, a fitness professional, mother, and food advocate, formed the FSRC in order to educate the community on the dangers of genetically engineered food. “It’s a shame. Consumers have no idea they’re eating Frankenfoods contaminated by Monsanto’s GMOs. Consumers don’t know because our government is corrupt. FDA, USDA, Monsanto are one of the same. We want a Monsanto-free food supply. We want labels. We want what 50 other countries and 40% of the world‘s population has, which is the right to know, and the right to choose what we eat,” says Crawford.

This “food fight” over genetically modified organisms has recently gained attention and the national spotlight. In November, Californians are poised to vote “yes” for the labeling of genetically engineered foods. Prop 37, a ballot initiative, would require food manufacturers to label products containing GMOs by 2013.

“We already have food labels showing nutrition, allergy information and other facts consumers want to know. This measure simply adds information telling us if food is produced using genetic engineering, which is when food is modified in a laboratory by adding DNA from other plants, animals, bacteria or viruses”, says Nina Roark, a concerned grandmother form Atlanta. “We’re hoping that the seeds of change blow from California to put an end to this GMO food insanity.”

With over $32 million in opposing donations to Prop 37, Roark reminds consumers, “Now more than ever, it’s crucial for consumers to choose manufacturer loyalties wisely. We have to vote hard with every food dollar we spend.”

Early voting for Prop 37 begins on October 9. Voting at polling locations takes place on November 6, 2012.

INCIDENT REPORT: GCU Field Agents celebrate Occupy 1st Anniversary in Honolulu, Hawaii

Posted: September 26th, 2012 | Filed under: Incident Reports, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |


It takes a Biosphere as a whole to float harmoniously in the vacuum of space almost as though it were meant to be. To even toy with an act of summoning the logic of the vacuume or further to even attempt to act as though we are in one whilst in an interconnected Biosphere is an act and thought of quintessential silliness and hubris in the extreme.

Beginning Monday, September 17, at 11:30 am and continuing through that week, “Occupy UH Manoa-santo,” a public forum and encampment, was formed on the sidewalk at University & Dole Street. A rally was held at the Hawai’i State Capitol from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm, followed by a discussion on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) at Thomas Square from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. It featured guest speakers and a soap box. At 6:30 pm, a march commenced from Thomas Square and ended at University & Dole to join the encampment there. Documentaries, music, and other media were shown at the UH encampment media center.

“At the UH Manoa campus, you have CTAHR,” explains Blade W., “It stands for College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources. They’ve received $620,000 from Monsanto to establish the Monsanto Research Fellows Fund. We’re setting up an encampment at UH to bring public attention to the University’s connection to this harmful form of agriculture.”

“Monsanto’s money has blinded the University to the downsides of GMO.” tells Michael Broady Jr., “When you listen to the official story, biotechnology seems like a positive thing. It is supposed to help farmers grow more food, prevent loss of crops, while Monsanto is able to provide the University with funding. However, those first two claims have not been substantiated, instead leading 250,000 farmers in India to suicide due to the increased dependence on Monsanto which comes with patented GMO seed. I urge UH CTAHR to question the paradigm of monoculture, which is not profitable if all factors are considered including damages to the environment and human health.”

I should add: With the great lengths taken and being took behind genetic modification at such fundamental levels, one conceivable scenario could be reached wherein the life cycle may become so totally alien in relation to what we know and perceive as human beings that it may take a billion years to truly become something we are used to calling again a balance. We may have times of mono sterility to wild and great swings of pre-cambrian explosions later in which it may be difficult for many to survive in a way that some may think of again of in a balance; if we as an ecosystem are able to achieve at all complex ecosystems it could be added.

Capitalism seems to be one of the major causes of this headlong and reckless pursuit, insanely fumbling with the very basis of life; trying to control it and emphasizing greed as capitalism does rather than the other paths and parts of human development as the way we decide to do things. There are other paths possible.
