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 Monsanto’s “Michael Taylor Resign” protest outside of the Washington Convention Center, April 20, 2012
The biotechnology industry is having a convention June 18-21 in Boston, Massachusetts. In order to attend the sessions you must register for the conference, which costs thousands of dollars. Since we don’t want to give a dime to the biotech industry, Occupy Monsanto, Millions Against Monsanto, and other food democracy groups will be staging our own “Sidewalk Session” on the first day of the convention outside of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. We hope you can join us.
WHAT: A Sidewalk Session – An open mic for activists to share & expose the dangers of the biotechnology industry
WHERE: Sidewalk in front of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, 415 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02210
WHEN: Monday, June 18th, at 8am until 10am
WHY: The biotechnology industry is conspiring to unleash more GMOs into the environment along with more toxic pesticides.
Affiliated Organizations include:
Millions Against Monsanto
Northeast Organic Farming Assoc. (NOFA)
the LEAH Collective

Last month, members of Safe Food Action St. Louis met with the store manager of the Brentwood Whole Foods Market to share the outcome of their survey regarding labeling GMO-contaminated food. The survey was consistent with other surveys conducted across the US, with 96% of the 315 respondents calling for the labeling of GMO food. The survey also showed that the majority folks shopping at Whole Foods Market had no idea that the store carries GMO food at all; many of them were surprised and dismayed at the fact.
Taking a stand for public health and food democracy, Safe Food Action St Louis has strongly urged Whole Foods Market to label foods containing GMOs and requested that Whole Foods Market provide an answer to this request by May 15. As yet, Safe Food Action St. Louis has not received a reply from management at Whole Foods Market. It is now time for Whole Foods Market to hear from us, the consumers!
Please join Safe Food Action St. Louis on Saturday, June 9th, and let Whole Foods Market know how you feel about unlabeled GMOs being sold in their stores.
WHO: Safe Food Action St. Louis, Whole Foods Market customers, and concerned citizens
WHEN: Saturday, June 9, 2012, 1-3pm
WHERE: Brentwood Whole Foods Market, 1601 Brentwood Blvd., St Louis, MO 63144 (meet in the parking lot)
WHY: It’s time for Whole Foods Market to hear demands from customers that want GMOs sold at their stores to be labeled!
There will be a pot luck dinner and sign-making event on Thursday, June 7th to prepare for the action. Please join us at 6pm at CAMP: 3022A Cherokee St, Saint Louis, MO 63118.
