I posted a doc about these evil delinquents about a month ago it might be in the news archives, Monsanto just the sound of them makes my flesh crawl. It really is like a bible prophecy "and the dark one will reign for blah blah blah" you get my meaning....

One of the things I found interesting when I went to Egypt several years ago, was how the people/farmers there BRAGGED about kicking Monsanto out of the country. Hopefully, one day, we'll have the same bragging rights in America.
The more we do to support local, organic farmers, plant non-hybridized, heirloom seeds, and pound our politicians to pass laws that protect us FROM this corporate poisoning of our food supply; the sooner we cut the legs out from under this Frankenstein of a company.

Yep & AMEN, Litha!! Morgana, your is a bit "mind blowing" to me because way back when I got visit Egypt, we had to pass through special check points due to some Communism there -- yet look at them now!!! AWESOME!!!
I certainly DID have a rather bizarrly adventurous "global" life back then!! In fact, ponder this... Although I spent much of my youth on farms, the very first place I ever got to milk a cow was in INDIA!!!
PEACE~

Monsanto is a company run by greedy and dangerous people all of whom need to be called to account and prosecuted.Their policies are ludicrous as only the protection of the wicked in the good old USA can be.

How can I find out what products Monsanto produces. I swear I won't eat a pea size of the stuff this company makes. There are already making people eat killer potatos. I smell a boycott.

If you want to know more about all the environmental and human rights abuses that Monsanto is responsible for, come and visit my profile page and scroll down until you get to the wasteland of MonsantoLand and the 40,000 Indian farmers who have committed suicide since 1997 because of the World Bank forcing Monsanto GE crops on them and the endless cycle of debt and failed crops that ensued. Not only that, lots of links.

Greenpeace, too, has lots of articles about Monsanto and GE crops and Vandana Shiva's site, too, will tell you loads about the World Bank and Monsanto and how the former fosters the latter.

I just recently posted an article, which has so far been virtually ignored on this network, about the recent study that for the first time shows Monsanto corn to have toxic effects on internal organs, and this corn has ALREADY been approved as human and animal food. You'll find it here:

This would be hilarious if it wasn't "to die for" ...:

"There is ground water pollution, but we do not think at present there is any danger to human health. We have spent about 800,000 so far investigating the tip. Our legal team is gathering all the evidence and we are trying to apportion costs."

The " We Do Not Think" part of the sentence says it all....when I read what dreadful toxins are getting in that ground water and that cows were dying years ago...duh, no danger whatsoever, right? But hey, the apportion of those costs is what it's really all about, never mind who dies while the courts are finding out who's smoke screen is the thickest.

I always hoped that nightmare companies like Monsanto existed only in Batman movies....but they're for real.
Hard to imagine people being so careless about their own world. And yes, even as the outlawed-in-your own country but-still-produced because Far Away someone will BUY them toxins are sprayed on a crop in whoknowswhere it is only our one little globe we live on.....so sad.
