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.

“Once they have established the norm —
that seed can be owned as their property —
royalties can be collected.
We will depend on them
for every seed we grow
of every crop we grow.
If they control seed, they control food, they know it; it’s strategic.
It’s more powerful than bombs.
It’s more powerful than guns.
This is the best way to control the populations of the world.”
That’s what the streets them say.
That’s what police them say.
That’s what the Babylon say.
Put cola upon lips
and get popped the same way now.
That’s what The Pentagon say.
That’s what the generals say.
That’s what the empire say.
Put death down your throat,
you get dropped the same way.
There’s a war going on inside,
no man is safe from:
every corner in the hood got a KFC
or McD’s. It’s crack speed like RED
Bull-ish they pulpit — so caffeine,
Kit Kat like a click-clack holes in your genes
Cuz everything at market ain’t all what it seems.
Little Debbie bussing biscuits at sugar-high fiends.
Ain’t nothing but a G thing —
GMO, MSG, genocide of street gangs.
Aspartame or street cane.
Monsanto is Rambo.
Round Up with ammo.
Who would have known you can die from a diet
Diabetes and the -itis from the dairy and the dose
of the high fructose
cuz your ribs too close
so you might start a riot.
Might be a FOOD FIGHTER!
Made you look
at the labels on the food that you cook.
Just say no to cocoa box
cuz when you Google the ingredients, you might get got.
Is your milk on drugs? Cuz your brain on Fox.
Factory farming spawning the Meatrix plot,
Globally warming us all, enough cows and NOx
driving the climate, driving a hummer or not.
Drive-in like a drive-by.
E.coli served super sized with a side of super lies.
so tell me what’s more gangsta than that?
Bullets or burgers both blaze burners to black.
Breakfast is a little like Texas,
Petro is everything that you’re eating on
My pesto is backyard like choppin’ chard.
My school lunch pack a punch.
FOOD FIGHT IS ON!
Beef is when you’re 12 years old and obese
clogged arteries, can’t see your own feet
until you’re up in ICU, guaranteed to be an ‘I see you”
From that processed food.
Suicide. It’s a suicide.
Don’t want no microwaves, no pesticides.
Fast food’s a slow death in disguise.
It’s the wild wild westernized world of deception and lies.
Beef is when you starve in a famine.
Nothing won’t grow and the land stays barren.
Pollution in the river, mercury in the salmon.
What sense do it make, being at war with the planet?
We’re at war for the mind so impressionable.
Instead of vegetables,
we reach for Red Bulls.
Poor diets kill more brothers than pistols.
We’re fighting for our lives like Michael Vic’s pit bulls.
Dog eat dog, America eats the young,
We die from beef, but more from meat than the gun.
Bullets for breakfast and mass murder meals.
Enemy of the state, and your plate is the battlefield
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.
On July 17th, 2012, The Food Supply Rescue Coalition visited an Atlanta area McDonald’s to try and buy a meal that did not contain Genetically Engineered products. They didn’t have much luck, but they did buy a meal to see if, and how long, the elements of the meal would decompose. This is part of the lead up to the September global week of action against Monsanto. Monsanto has patented their genetically engineered plants and animal feed found in 90% of American food products, and McDonald’s is one of the main conduits for these products to enter the population. But now some people are fighting back by demanding labeling, more education of what they call “Frankenfoods”, and eventually banning GMO’s altogether.
