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.
Surf legend Kelly Slater has come out with a stunning attack on GMOs and their biotech giant developers’ seed patents. In his Hawaii video, produced by the Hawai’i GMO Justice Coalition, he also criticizes the islands for allowing GM crop trials on a large scale.
Kelly Slater states in the video that “if your father dies of cancer like mine did or if you have friends who are affected by having kids with autism you start to have a lot of questions, like where are these coming from? It seems like every day we are either learning about a new disease or a higher rate of disease in children.”
“Now these large food companies have created all these seed banks and patented the seeds, so basically they own all the seeds and they are getting rid of biodiversity in alot of ways,” he added.
Slater also slated the idea that GMO labeling is in any way a bad idea; “It seems like a no brainer to me I couldn’t imagine coming out against labeling GMO foods.”
He also added that “Hawaii’s a bunch of guinea pigs, the islands are a bunch of guinea pigs for these companies,” referring to the biotech giants who have taken over the islands for GM crop field trials.
“The track record of Monsanto doesn’t seem to be that good by most people’s calculations. How toxic is that land going to be after it is sprayed with Roundup for 15 years? Its almost going to be unusable for anything else” Slater concluded.
In another anti-GMO video out of Hawaii yesterday, Babes Against Biotech, led by Nomi Carmona, attacked the pro-GMO policies of Colin Barnett’s current government in the surf paradise of Western Australia ahead of elections there on March 9 – Watch It Here!
Robert Kelly Slater (born February 11, 1972, Cocoa Beach, FL, USA) is an American professional surfer known for his competitive prowess and style. He has been crowned ASP World Champion a record 11 times, including 5 consecutive titles from 1994–98. He is the youngest (at age 20) and the oldest (at age 39) to win the title. Upon winning his 5th world title in 1997, Slater passed Australian surfing legend Mark Richards to become the most successful champion in the history of the sport.
Hawai’i GMO Justice Coalition
The is an organization made up of truth tellers who are tired of the chemical status quo. They are dedicated to ending the GMO chemical warfare against our ‘aina from 25 years of GMO field trials and are committed to educating the public about issues not being reported by the mainstream media. They define justice as eviction and reparations.
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.
