On September 16, 2012, the Northampton Genetic Crimes Unit staged a Decontamination Event in downtown Northampton, Massachusetts. They were able to track down the elusive Frank N. Corn and while doing so they made this awesome music video.
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.
This morning Field Agents from the Occupy Monsanto Genetic Crimes Unit staged a demonstration outside of the Republican Party’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
As a part of the Occupy the GMO Candidate national day of action, Field Agents setup outside of the Capitol South Metro Station and greeted Capitol Hill staffers & Republican Party operatives as they arrived for work.
Many people gave thumbs up in approval and quite a few people laughed at the Corn Chimp’s street theater.
Field Agents held up signs & banners, mic-checked Romney for his ties to Monsanto, and asked staffers why Romney chooses to only eat organic food.
Throughout the demonstration there was an undercover police officer sitting in an unmarked car across the street monitoring the demonstration. At around 9:30AM when Field Agents concluded the demonstration and began to take off their costumes, the officer came up to the group and thanked us for our spirited activism. What he said next was rather shocking: he said he used for work for the USDA in the 1990s and that employees worked tirelessly to prevent GMOs from going into the American food supply.
Later today Field Agents will be heading to Democratic Party headquarters to ask why Obama has failed to fulfill his campaign promise to label GMO foods & why he appointed Monsanto lobbyist Michael Taylor to the second highest position at the FDA.
More photos & videos to be added soon!
On Wednesday, October 17, one month after the commencement of the Occupy Monsanto Global Week of Action, we are calling for Occupy Monsanto GCU Field Agents across America to stage Decontamination Events at your nearest campaign office of Romney or Obama. For GCU Field Agents located outside of America, we suggest staging another demonstration at your nearest Monsanto facility or symbol of American toxic agriculture.
Why? Both presidential candidates are avoiding the GMO issue because both candidates take money from Monsanto. Therefore its up to us to force them to take a position on GMOs.
Activism in all its forms is the best way to force political candidates to listen to the people. Signing petitions is activism-lite, while showing up at a campaign field office with signs, banners, megaphones, and staging a Decontamination Event is the type of activism that cannot be ignored.
Confirmed Decontamination Events:
+ Stand For No GMO’s at CANDIDATES OFFICES in Daytona Beach, Florida
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – San Francisco, CA
+ Occupy Robamney – Omaha, NE
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – Republican Party National Headquarters, Washington, DC
+ Occupy the GMO Candidate – Democratic Party National Headquarters, Washington, DC
If you plan on taking part, please e-mail the time, date, and the address of the candidate’s Field Office to October17@Occupy-Monsanto.com and we’ll add it to the list above.
