Paraguayans Protest Against U.S. Multinational

Asuncion, Sep 17 (Prensa Latina) Groups of Paraguayans protested today in downtown Asuncion against the U.S. transnational Monsanto and official authorisation for transgenic crops of corn and cotton.

Social organizations that are part of the Campaign for Life and Human Rights, thus joined the international movement called Occupy Monsanto that take place in many countries.

Posters with the motto “Monsanto Out Paraguay” and “We Stand For Life” were peaked by protesters, along with another that referred to Federico Franco, currently holding the presidency of the Republic, with the phrase Monfranco Out.

Some participants spoke near the Pantheon of the Heroes, denouncing the serious damage to the health of farmers, the environment and lands caused by seeds and pesticides sold by Monsanto to the country.

There, it was announced that, throughout this week, there will be activities in the streets to defend national and native seed against the avalanche of crops with GM seeds directly approved by Franco and brought into the country by Monsanto.

As part of the Week of the Seed, an event also takes place with representatives of peasant and indigenous organizations and other civil society to discuss and disseminate the damage caused by the opening to GM seed.

Among them, the damage done by this government decision to national plans for food sovereignty, the indigenous seed used by small and humble farmers and the health of those who work the land.

Although a small crowd we occupied the lobby of Monsanto Australian HQ, talked to bystanders and convinced the building manager and cops to extend the 30 second stay they had originally given us.

The Monsanto offices closed for the duration of our rally.

Messages of solidarity from Occupy Monsanto Sydney and Latin American Solidarity Network came in as we networked with GM free activists from Bendigo, Ballarat, Wonthaggi, Melbourne as well as passersby.

Good day in all – we were filmed by the ABC and interviewed by Wonderful World Media.

Later we delivered a letter to the Monsanto office listing our concerns. We were told that the Monsanto Australia Leadership team are all away in St Louis – we told them more protests would await them.

Horrible sight in their office – a floodlit shrine-like display of Round-Up containers in a display cabinet!

Occupy aims to shut down Monsanto in Davis

About 100 Occupy protesters blocked off the parking lot to Monsanto Corporation in Davis in an effort to shut down the chemical giant.

Members of the Occupy movement said they planned to mark the first year of the movement with more demonstration.

The protest, organized by Occupy Sacramento, Woodland and Davis groups, is one of nearly 100 demonstrations planned across the world in protest of the chemicals and mass pollution. It also marks one year of the movement.

Protesters carried signs, wore bio-hazard suits, and chanted “No GMO’s”, referring to genetically modified organisms.

Occupy held a similar protest at Monsanto in March.

The demonstration remained peaceful.

Davis police said they have brought in additional officers and have a contingency plan in place in case the protest escalates.
