Monsanto quits as GM results announced (EUROPE)


www.dailymail.co.uk

Anti-GM campaigners have welcomed a decision by biotechnology giant Monsanto to pull out of the European seed cereal business.
The announcement came as the Government published its report into GM crop trials and its effects on the environment and wildlife.
Monsanto, the huge US company that has pioneered GM crops, issued a statement which announced its "intention to exit from its European cereal seed business".

Surprised, I didn't find this on breaking news thread.
Yes, its daily mail, but its all over the wires.
Maybe it hasn't made news in the US yet?
Finally, someone has the balls to kick out the death peddlers (my opinion)...
Very welcome news indeed.
Now this is democracy and civil movement at it best.
Banding together against an apparently evil plan (my opinion).
Anyone care to defend Monsanto?

It looks like they woken up to the fact that people don't want them and they're not making enough money from them.
The only problem is what are they gonna replace them with

Why not? Ghengis Khan had an enlightened foreign policy.

You're welcome. It really is disturbing, though. So many lives / families have been destroyed that it is hard to take it in.

Maybe the Trojan horse got used once too may times. Maybe Europe is the turning of the tide...

No for them to put right their wrongs and they may just be forgiven.

This news is based on an old article from 2003, according to a post in the UBC Botanical Garden Forums and NaturalNews.


The journal which published this apologized this morning for the old news. Interestingly, the original date was 2003, not 2012. But interestingly, I clicked on the Daily News website to the article and it did show 2012, but as of last night was corrected to 2003. Here is the journal's explanation:

Quote:
Dear NaturalNews readers,
We have a depressing correction to make this morning. Our "victory against GMOs" story about the UK turns out to be old news rather than good news.
We had ran a search for "Monsanto" on the Daily Mail website, and it turned up our source story, dated February 3, 2012.
But as it turns out, that was some sort of date glitch on the Daily Mail website, and that article was actually published in 2003!
We have a captured screen shot from the Daily Mail's own search engine, showing the incorrect date on the article. View it here: www.naturalnews.com...

(For those of you in the USA looking at this photo, remember that in the UK, the day and month are reversed, so 03/02 means February 3rd, not March 2nd.)

Monsanto contacted us this morning and insisted they had not retreated from the UK at all, and in fact they had made great strides in the UK and across Europe. We have also since confirmed with Daily Mail that this story is from 2003, not 2012.

So, my friends, I regret to inform you that things are far worse than we had hoped. GMOs have not been defeated in Europe, and our optimism was mistaken. This is a lesson in misplaced optimism, it seems...

I truly regret the confusion this has caused, but of course it was not intentional on our part. We thought we were quoting an article from today, February 3rd, 2012.

On the side of actual good news, it is true that an anti-GMO rally is scheduled for February 21 in Hawaii: www.naturalnews.com...

I think you may be wrong. Take a look at all events as a whole. They who have been deceiving the world are at this time shi$%£ng themselves at the moment. They will not admit it but they are. They have a good right to be worried to.
You will see in the very near future, i am not talking years rather days-weeks of sudden discoveries in technologies and cures for illnesses. You will see a massive shift of out with the old and in with the new. However i say new which is wrong, it is new as in new to us because it was hidden from us. The individuals who have been deceiving everyone for their own personal gain are set to make a truly amazing fall from their lives of luxury.

I dont know if you have read any of my threads but everything points to an ultimate end. The return.

Now you may mock, laugh and ridicule me, but hey, thats your choice. But you will remember this post. All of you who read this and my threads will remember them.

The divisions in religions is also a matter to yet be sorted but it will. All for one and one for all.

that is unfortunate on many levels.
it was a honest mistake.

I think Germany was the final straw(pun intended)for monsanto in Europe.
Once the biggest economic power station of the EU rejects GMO's,monsanto had no other option.

Nice work Germany,you have saved many lives and stopped many illnesses.
I thank you.

However,Monsatano is a mega corp,who are turning their attention to the third world-Europe they can do without when it comes to wheat and corn,for they have massive markets in Asia free from scrutiny.
All experimental of course,as they cannot know how a GM product will affect a person until they have eaten it.
But hey,Africa and India are still taking the money,so all is well for monsatan.

I hope we don't get the crap imported without GM labels...that is what they want ultimately IMO.

Another thread this morning pointed out that Monsanto has removed GMO foods from their employee's cafeteria because their employees asked them to. First their employee, now Europe. Why don't they just quit poisoning the planet altogether? And they can take the High Fructose Genetically Modified Corn Syrup with them. Indeed not allowing that stuff into my house ended my years of Acid Reflux and my long relationship with Prilosec OTC.

Hey Monsanto/ADM/Cargil if you keep killing us with your junk, whose pockets will you pick for your profits in the future?

S+F OP

They won't need to pick anyone's pockets, they will have the entire world which is what "they" want. These same "they" that erected the Georgia Guidestones. All these monopolized mega corps stink of Illuminati Luciferians and the U.S. government stinks of Illuminati too. I hate secret societies that don't put windows in their lodges and that slink around behind closed doors hiding God alone knows what kind of evils.

Maybe off topic, but maybe not?
It seems even Monsanto employees are choosing to avoid eating gmos.

The Independent newspaper reports that there is a notice in the cafeteria of the Monsanto pharmaceutical factory is High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, advising customers “as far as practicable, GM soya and maize (has been removed) from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve.”
