When people get fed up...they expose the corruption and tyranny...

The machine is losing its grip on the people...we're all slowly waking up one way or another.

Sweet! Monsanto along with their puppets in the Obama administration and at the FDA need to go down!

I don't think they'll win since the government is on the side of Monsanto and the courts too, but you never know!

Good luck to them!

For the people interested.

A super interesting documentary about Monsanto.

' the world according to Monsanto '


There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it – it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”.

I don't know how to go about it but I think that an organisation like AVAAZ could muster a couple of million signatures!

I love seeing people rise up and fight back!! It send fiery energy through my veins..

For so long, I was so angry at society for being so apathetic. But over the last two years, I have seen people really starting to stand there ground.. waking up.. realizing what a sick, f**ked up joke our world has become.

Now I feel a very strong vibe, that change is going to happen.... and it's very exciting... ~()~

awesome idk if the system would function right with monsanto. these people's grip on the world is sickening. I was watching modern marvels on history about sugar and its production, and apparently all the sugar thats in all our food comes from a pink geneticly modified seed provided to the farmers. Its weird but if you think about it if you had contaminates in the salt and sugar production at the seedling level then you control the populace.

Here is Adam Eidinger, I assume the legal spearhead of the Organic Farmers movement. In my opinion a very well spoken and intelligent individual



He presents his argument in an interesting way. Instead of approching the peoceedings, the C.E.O, the court, and a handful of Monsatnos' shareholders with an "activist stance", he instead does so with a "financial liability" stance.

He asks how many millions of dollars their company intends to spend on labeling and licencing lawsuits brought against them.

...It's a shame that health issues and the potential for harming the entire human race, takes a backseat to numbers on a bank account, but that's what it took to get just a few shareholders attention.

Hit them where it hurts, their wallets. All it takes nowadays is just a grain of doubt to kill even a large corporation. Thats another reason social media, blogs and any website, forum or newsletter is under threat. If people spread the message that your company sucks, you lose your' customers, and those big companies spend big bucks to eliminate that kind of negative exposure.

The sad thing is that this is NOT about money. For those of you who think it is are missing the alterior motives of these eugenicists. This is about control of the worldwide food supply and ultimately world population reduction.

The people who matter in Monsanto have all the money they want they could care less. It is about gaining control of the most powerful weapon known to mankind, the food supply.

I was born and raised in rural America and this is very good news. Monsanto is just another control mechanism and is a monopolistic chicanery. Food tastes so much different today than it did 20 years ago! I was noticing that this weekend, my strawberries did not have very much flavor. Looked pretty good, but the taste is so generic and bland. I don't know, maybe it's just me. Blueberries, blackberries and red raspberries are the same way, just not right!

Didn't the Federal Govt sue Microsoft for monopolistic practices? And strangely, Gates has turned up in the last few years supporting vaccines and depopulation. Some things are inexplicable. Monsanto has monopoly written all over it.

Yah except when you can taste the chlorox they wash them in. One day I brought home a nice looking container of strawberries and the first taste reeked of chemical. But yah sometimes it just seems like all food is bland.

It is unfortunate that the Occupy movement seems preoccupied with destroying Capitalism and corporations in general and I don't trust their motives. They are interested in bringing socialism and direct democracy to the US. I do not want to see Monsanto succeed in poisoning and controlling the food supply, but there needs to be a balance here.

Would love to see the same company that killed off individuals with "Agent Orange'" in Vietman, succumb to laws, regulations, and standards, which all other farmers have to abide by

However, not holding my breath

you think something is going to change?

when there is a world wide food shortage? :pus:


This law suit is frivolous. I AM Not defending MON here,
but what are these farmers doing here really?
They are just trying to make some $ $$ $ from MON

Everything MON does is LEGAL.

Farmers should start by suing the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
not just some Corporation.


Monsanto is not a GMO company, that exists as a front to SELL PESTICIDE.

as long as pesticide is legal, MONSANTO WILL BE in BUSINESS
