On the 25th of May 2013, the first World Wide March Against Monsanto took place.
It was started by Tami Canal out of sheer frustration and desperation due to the failure of a California ballot to get food products labelled that are made from genetically modified seeds sprayed with a highly toxic and poisonous herbicide containing glyphosate called Roundup.

The full implications and dangers of the patenting of food sources and ultimately food security being taken out of the hands of the world’s farmers and put into the hands of a small group of corporations has not entered the consciousness of mall rats, many of whom seem to think that what they eat is in the same category as the latest cell phone and comes off a 3D printing production line.
Farmers today can be sued for producing their own seed and posing a threat to the hegemonic GMO corporate seed giants. Many organic farmers whose crops have been infested by GMO from a neighbouring farm have been sued for producing GMO that they had never planted in the first place.
One of the few countries who took early action was Hungary who ripped up all their fields and burnt GMO out of their country. A radical step, but now their food products are totally GMO free.

SOUTH AFRICA – On 21 May 2016, South Africans will once again unite, in numerous cities throughout the country, to protest Monsanto’s aggressive attempts to force genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, and their chemical Herbicides, onto South African consumers and farmers.

The IARC review notes that there is limited evidence for a link to cancer in humans. Although several studies have shown that people who work with the herbicide seem to be at increased risk of a cancer type called non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the report notes that a separate huge US study, the Agricultural Health Study, found no link to non-Hodgkin lymphomas. That study followed thousands of farmers and looked at whether they had increased risk of cancer.
It's the price to pay for having so many billions of people to feed. Without enough food there will be Wars, that is an historical certainty.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
