Good to see that resistance to Monsanto is mounting. Hopefully, in 2015, Europe will continue its actions against Monsanto's interests, they also have stronger labelling laws.

My response on a Causes article:

I wonder how long it will take before the GMA claims that the legislation is an infringement of its freedom of speech? After all, SCOTUS did grant personhood to corporations through Citizens United and therefore all the rights contained in the Constitution.

"Every citizen deserves the right to know what he or she is eating. Every state deserves the right to protect its residents and its environment without being threatened by multi-billion dollar corporations."


The fight to uphold food labeling is bigger even than individual states. It has international implications as US food stuffs are sold in Canada and elsewhere. With the TPP, all rights will be under fire.

Is it time to boycott the GMA member corporations? I think so. They are worried about their insane profits going down because some people will stop consuming their products because of GMOs. Well let's give them a reason to be concerned by boycotting. Let's grow the grassroots!

Petition signed 03 May 2014.

Corporations are not people. Inaccurate labeling is not free speech!

I use to tell my children when they said, "but everyone else is doing it" to be a Lighthouse. SOMEONE has to be a Lighthouse when everyone else is lost and floundering around. This is what Vermont and Bernie Sanders is, the Lighthouse when the rest of the States and many in our Government have been lost and floundering around too busy kissing the Corporate butts to realize the disasters they are creating for their Country and for their own self and children too. They forget they too live on this planet and breath the same air. They might be able to move to a safer place for awhile, pay top dollar to get their foods grown in better conditions, but after a time there will be no escape for any of them. Fools. So thank goodness for the people or places like Vermont that are the Lighthouse. We desperately need more....Lighthouses.

Monsanto is THE evil empire of our time. It will be decades before we know the true extent of the harm they have caused, in the interim opposing them, trying to avoid their frankenfoods and calling them what they are is all we can do - money talks and they've a ton of it. Until there are progressive governments in place around the world (which is what it would also take to try preventing the coming climatological holocaust), which may be never, they will prosper as they spread their bribes and plant their poisonous seeds. Horrible people, horrible company. If a war need be fought it ought be against this company.

Here is a petition sponsored by the Organic Consumers Association asking the EPA to ban glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's infamous Round-up herbicide, which is wreaking such havoc with the health of people, wildlife and the environment.

A must see is the documentary The World According to Monsanto, available on Youtube

Here;s an article about the two Oregon farming counties that recently approved a measure to ban GMO crops!

There's also info on the website about the new 'super bee' being developed by Monsanto. It seems that they realize full well they are destroying the native and domestic bee populations and are working to create a franken-bee that can survive the job of pollinating their franken-crops!

Any fight against Monsanto is the right thing to do.

Thank you noted and signed. Vermont will win....always does.

Who closed the Trans Canada Nuke Power Plant......Vermonters... it took 30 years...Vermonters do not quit,

Unlike other states, the government of the State of Vermont still listens to the people and not the corporations.....quite evident in most situations involving Vermont.

And what happened after Vermont's people closed down the Trans Canada Vermont Yankee nuke power plant?

Bernie nailed their coffin closed on all of their defective nuke power plants, federal law. Whenever any of them have certain hazards occur, such as a moving radio-active plume under the reactor, the corporation who was operating the plant at the completely liable for all damages downstream. Go Bernie. We closed it down in August 2013 and the workers in the effort watched the gates close forever.

So Monsanto ... go ahead play Goliath......Vermont is ready to play David.

N&S, #289. The Organic Consumers Association also has a petition about this.
Here are some hints about GMO's:
Unless otherwise labelled, if a product contains corn, corn syrup, soy, or soy lecithin, it is GMO.
They engineer these seeds so that they can withstand large amounts of herbicides and pesticides without killing the crop. So, GMO products most likely will have higher amounts of chemical residues... yuck.....

I signed, only because I disagree with them on transgenic seed patents, however, much like Apple or Microsoft in computers or Nike in the shoe and apparel industry or Starbucks in the coffee business, it aggressively protects its patent rights from those who try to steal its intellectual property.
