India says Monsanto covertly, illegally conducted GM corn trials without approval


www.naturalnews.com

Recent reports out of India say that multinational biotechnology giant Monsanto has once against skirted the law by clandestinely planting its genetically-modified (GM) corn without receiving approval to do so.

When he discovered that Monsanto had schemed with India's Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) and the Indian Council for Agriculture Research (ICAR) to plant genetically-modified (GM) corn without official approval, Kumar was outraged. Kumar had previously written a letter to

Here we go again with one of the most evil companies on the face of this planet!

This needs to stop and Monsanto needs to be put down as a company, nothing but immoral and illegal behavior left and right surrounds this demonic organizaiton.

I don't know why they are testing this on India more than any other country, perhaps Monsanto knows something we don't as far as where the world's food supply with one day orginate from by a landslide margin.

At least the Canadians are trying to do something about it

The National Health Federation, along with its NHF-Canada branch, vehemently knows that consumers do have that right, and is demanding the adoption of an international standard of full disclosure, on labels, of the presence of any genetically-modified ingredients in all food products.

With GMOs already in 60-70% of American foods for the last seven years or more, public concerns have been elevated by the recent discovery of a microscopic pathogen associated with Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn and soy, which is causing spontaneous abortions and infertility in livestock. Experts warn this pathogen threatens to destroy the entire U.S. corn and soy export markets.

100 years in the future, school children will learn about Monsanto's devastation of humanity and the ecosystem like we all learned about the Nazis' genocidal actions.

Agreed. Monsanto is an evil organization and will be leading the path toward crop destruction. This story doesn't surprise me at all.

Signed, sealed and delivered, S&F. Thanks for the post. Yes they are as evil as evil gets, absolutley NO morals or ethics, but what do you expect from the ex payroll employees and associates names listed below. Monsanto owns our govt. and then some. Anything with Rumsfield's name attached to it in any shape or form is going to be evil.

" Former Monsanto employees currently hold positions in US government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Environmental Protection Agency‎ (EPA) and the Supreme Court. These include Clarence Thomas, Michael R. Taylor, Ann Veneman, Linda Fisher, Michael Friedman, William D. Ruckelshaus, and Mickey Kantor.[24] Linda Fisher has been back and forth between positions at Monsanto and the EPA.[

Justice Clarence Thomas worked as an attorney for Monsanto in the 1970s. Thomas wrote the majority opinion in the 2001 Supreme Court decision J. E. M. Ag Supply, Inc. v. Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc.|J. E. M. AG SUPPLY, INC. V. PIONEER HI-BREDINTERNATIONAL, INC.[118] which found that "newly developed plant breeds are patentable under the general utility patent laws of the United States." This case benefitted all companies which profit from genetically modified crops, of which Monsanto is one of the largest.[24][119][120]
Michael R. Taylor was an assistant to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner before he left to work for a law firm on gaining FDA approval of Monsanto’s artificial growth hormone in the 1980s. Taylor then became deputy commissioner of the FDA from 1991 to 1994.[24] Taylor was later re-appointed to the FDA in August 2009 by President Barack Obama.[121]
Dr. Michael A. Friedman was a deputy commissioner of the FDA before he was hired as a senior vice president of Monsanto.[24]
Linda J. Fisher was an assistant administrator at the United States Environmental Protection Agency‎ (EPA) before she was a vice president at Monsanto from 1995 - 2000. In 2001, Fisher became the deputy administrator of the EPA.[24]
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was chairman and chief executive officer of G. D. Searle & Co., which Monsanto purchased in 1985. Rumsfeld personally made at least $12 million USD from the transaction."

I could not agree more, Monsanto is the most perfect example of corporate evil that there is. Let's also not forget however that there are other companies out there that are doing this kind of thing as well... such as Dow and DuPont. They've got their mits in GMOs as well, just not as prominent as Monsanto.


Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Syngenta and other major GMO agribusiness giants are reported at the heart of AGRA, using it as a back-door to spread their patented GMO seeds across Africa under the deceptive label, ‘bio-technology,’ a euphemism for genetically engineered patented seeds. The person from the Gates Foundation responsible for its work with AGRA is Dr. Robert Horsch, a 25-year Monsanto GMO veteran who was on the team that developed Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready GMO technologies. His job is reportedly to use Gates’ money to introduce GMO into Africa.11

Source

If you really want to "curl your hair".... read up on the AGRA project and take note of the people who are involved with that. It will make you sick......

I saw a documentary a long while back that explains alot about Monsanto that I will post here if you are interested in watching it. It has people from India as well as latin America explaining what Monsanto is doing to their local crops as well as how Monsanto came into being and their very very deep rooted ties with the US Government.

"The World According to Monsanto"

As you can tell, this is a topic that is near and dear to my heart and a banner that I take up and wave anytime I get half the chance to..... so thank you for starting this thread and I hope it helps people out there wake up and take a really good look at what is really going on in our food supply and who is really behind it all.

The more acceptable sources of this story are

1) GM maize trials done on the sly: Nitish Kumar

and

2) Withdraw nod for field trials of Bt maize in Bihar, GEAC told

While I admire Natural News for their diligent vigilance, journalism is not their strong suit.

The real issue here is that the public officials in India should never have given them permission for trials in the first place until each State had a say in the matter. But like most overarching governments, they apparently only rely on due process when it is politically expedient.

Off-Topic: We are all free to engage in the civic actions we wish to. But our community will not descend into the pit of populism.

The Terms and Conditions are clear. NO SOLICITING.

With respect.

No problem. No harm, no foul....

Now go out there and find out more.... the MSM sure as heck aren't going to rat out their own bosses.

I weep for the lack of a truly free press of the people.... but together, we are working on that, aren't we?

Personally I would like to see a whole lot more independant internet based news sources pop up and reclaim what journalism once was. Unless it is just romantacised memories, and journalism was never good lol.

Agreed, I suspect that journalism began to die once newspapers became big business. Actually, strike that, it didn't simply 'die'; it was slowly smothered by 'editorial privilege' wrapped in a blanket of 'free speech.'

Freedom truly can be a double-edged sword.....

Corporate entities have no allegiance to any country, or anything other than money. It is up to us in canada to rally OUR government to keep the crap out of our country. But like america, most of our citizens are oblivious to anything that is not on TV

Monsanto's technologies are very pervasive. It is nearly impossible to avoid their direct influence and impact on anything we see marketed for public consumption.

But what is worse is that now they are using legislative power and regulatory influence to hide GMO's from the consumers. That's a bad sign. Really bad.

This is no different than the proliferation of PCB's in our environment (it can even be found int he snow in Antarctica.) Another - closely related kissing cousin of Monsanto is responsible for that. Yet no one speaks of it at all anymore. I believe that is precisely what Monsanto wants for their 'products'.... that we not even acknowledge or recognize that they exist. That we simply rely on them, and them only, for 'acceptable' food stuffs.
