Worldwide ‘March Against Monsanto’ Protests Planned for May 25th
by Anthony Gucciardi
May 9th, 2013
Countless individuals will soon assemble in small and large groups around the nation and the globe alike in protest against Monsanto’s genetic manipulation of the food supply. Organized under the May 25th movement known as the ‘March on Monsanto’, the massive new rally reveals how the grassroots public has truly had enough of Monsanto’s monopoly on the many staple crops that have quickly been sucked into Monsanto’s genetically modified tycoon.
It’s virtually impossible these days to enter a grocery store, even
one bearing the title of ‘natural’, and not encounter at least a few
items that contain genetically modified ingredients. And for quite some
time, this fact was not even known to the large majority of the United
States public. Many simply did not even know what a GMO was, or what it
could potentially do to their bodies (or the bodies of the children who
they were feeding with genetically engineered processed food).
This, of course, stems from the fact that the FDA and Monsanto have
decided that you aren’t allowed to know if your food contains GMOs. Even
despite the fact that peer-reviewed research has pegged
Monsanto’s best selling herbicide Roundup (which is a key part of
Monsanto’s Roundup-ready GMO crops) to around 37 associated diseases,
the FDA says it’s perfectly safe. So safe that it’s not even necessary
to label in your food. So very safe that the only study that ever examined
how Roundup and GMOs affect rats throughout their lifetime found that
the rats developed tumors so large that it impacted their very ability
It’s madness that has been identified for a long time by alternative
news writers and readers, but thanks to the success of Prop 37 and other
initiatives it has now hit the general public — and they’re not happy.
The Grassroots Will End Monsanto
Now enter campaigns like the March on Monsanto,
which is slated to happen around the world on May 25th. It’s a
grassroots event that has turned into a major organized movement thanks
to countless local activists. The event is going on in major cities like
San Diego and New York City, to small towns and even rural areas. It’s
all being organized online via an open Google Document,
where you can find the protest nearest to you and be a part of it.
There’s also many open slots for organizers and speakers, so if you’re
interested in that be sure to check that out as well.
The beauty of these events is that they are really the most effective
at taking down any type of corrupt entity, as the grassroots aspect
just empowers so many individuals without an underlying motivation for
profits or anything of that sort. It really just comes down to people
who want to eat real food and not some junk that’s spliced with the
genetics of a spider. Or more importantly, the few people who understand
that if we don’t stop genetically modified organisms today, they will
develop technologically into what’s known as things like ‘biopharmaceutical‘ crops tomorrow.
I’ve said this back in 2011 and 2012, and I really do believe the
grassroots will destroy Monsanto within the next 3-4 years (at most).
The company has gotten away with Agent Orange and the
hundreds of thousands of deaths from that, it has gotten away with
horrendous pollution dumps, it has truly gotten away with so much that
the average ‘small business’ (a business that isn’t in bed with the
government agencies policing it) would never be able to. And the people
aren’t having it anymore.
Checkout March Against Monsanto and head to a local event. Hand out
some printed articles on GMOs from NaturalSociety or elsewhere, and just
try and spread the word in a kind and inviting way to the general
