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.

Metro Boston Misses the Point…

Posted: June 18th, 2012 | Filed under: Press | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This article was Monday’s front page story in Metro Boston, a free daily newspaper. Was Metro Boston hoping for a riot? The impact of a demonstration is not about the number of people present, but the number of people reached by the message. Metro Boston missed the point that unlabeled GMOs are hazardous to our health, environment, and future generations.

Where have all the BIO protesters gone?

Published: June 17, 2012 7:40 p.m.

An international biotechnology conference that once drew thousands of passionate protesters to Boston 12 years ago may only see a handful of chanters during a return visit to the Hub this week.

The four day BIO International Convention, a gathering of biotechnology leaders from around the world, kicks off today at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in South Boston. More than 16,000 people are expected to attend and contribute nearly $27 million to the local economy.

But, as they have in years past, those biotechnology industry leaders will be welcomed by a group of protesters who are planning a rally this morning for the start of the conference.

Groups who have expressed their support and plan to participate in the protest include Occupy Monsanto, the Northeast Organic Farming Association and Occupy Boston.

Rica Madrid, a member of Occupy Monsanto, said last week that she expected about 50 people to show up to the protest. As of yesterday afternoon, about 60 people were signed up on the group’s Facebook page to attend today.

“We really do hope it’s by the thousands, but to be realistic, I think a lot of people really do care, but conflicts are people’s families. And they don’t have a lot of time to come out to a demonstration on a Monday morning,” Madrid said.

She also said a problem to attracting people to the protest is the lack of knowledge about the group’s cause – genetically modified organisms in food.

The group hopes to force companies to label food that includes genetically engineered ingredients.
A Boston police spokesman said in an e-mail that police are aware the convention “may draw some opposition groups” and that the department has assigned additional resources.

Conference organizers said protesters will use a “First Amendment designated area” and that the safety and well-being of convention attendees and Hub citizens is top priority.

    INCIDENT REPORT: Join Safe Food Action St. Louis to Demand that Whole Foods Market Label GMO Food – June 9, 2012

    Posted: June 4th, 2012 | Filed under: Events, Incident Reports | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

    stop gmo food contamination INCIDENT REPORT: Join Safe Food Action St. Louis to Demand that Whole Foods Market Label GMO Food   June 9, 2012 Whole Foods Market St. Louis Safe Food Action St. Louis Protest Missouri Label GMO gmo Genetically Modified Food genetically engineered food food democracy Demonstration CAMP

    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.
