In the uk all we can do is vote for those that are offered to us, the fact they are all governed by the same powers makes are votes worthless.
The people of our nation are controlled like robots via the television, they do whatever it tells them to do.
We are now powerless to stop them.

GO THE FRENCH!!! Get those guillotines out of storage and in use!!!

We the people need to rise up against these monsters!!! They think they rule the world! They must be brought down legally somehow!!!

People need to literally get voodoo on their you know what!!!

We were told the EU would not over rule national decisions...yeah right.
Screw the EU,and Monsatan.

Agreed I can feel it in the air! if I remember right (so I most likely dont) it was a really high percentage of the country that did not want Monsanto and their poison! I can see allot of pissed off French standing up against this because it is not something they want!

In Europe non meat/ diary products will be labelled. Unfortunately there is a loophole on meat/eggs/diary labelling so that they are allowed to be fed GMO feed and not have the end animal product labelled, so to avoid GMO it has to be organic.

In the America's there is no labelling, to avoid GMO's you need to eat USDA Organic (there may still be a little contamination, but it's the best we have.) Most processed products with these big 4 ingrediants: corn,soy, canola / cottonseed oil will more than likely be GMO, as will all meat/eggs/diary/cheese unless Organic, or 100% grass fed beef (but only for this year as GMO Alfalfa (grass) has now been approved by the FDA.
Papaya from Hawaii, some zuchini / squash / sugar beet/rice & some potato's are now also GMO, but no where near as much as the big 4.

Most other fruit and veggies are GMO free as are beans / pulses / wild caught fish (watch out for the suistainability list and eat small species to avoid mercury).

An easy way to start out is to remove any products from your shopping cart that contain high fructose corn syrup and soy. Each shopping trip replace one or two of your favourite processed items that contain these ingredients with an alternative that doesn't have them.

The other thing that people can do is help the folks trying to get a yes vote to mandatory GMO labelling in California this Novemeber 2012, they need money to combat the propaganda that Monsanto is going to spread to try to kill this initiative. Califoria has one of the largest economies in the world, if they pass the labelling law, chances are the companies will have the stuff labelled for all over the US, better yet they'll try to avoid the GMO ingredients to avoid the label as they did in Europe.

here's my previous thread on this:
The GMO Labeling Initiative WILL Be on the Ballot in California

Why is it worth the effort to avoid this stuff ?

The Academy reported that several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food, including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation (diabetes), and changes in major organs (liver/kidney/brain/heart) and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM asked physicians to advise patients to avoid GM foods.

Typical behaviour by the EU centralist scum!

How dare they to infringe France's national sovereignity without any democratic legitimacy?!

Come on France, show us you still got that fire you used in 1789 to storm the Bastille!

We don't get to vote for european parliament members.
That's right, not a single member of the EU parliament holds democratic legitimacy from the citizens of europe.

Things will only get worse until we as a people unite as one. What is the breaking point I often ask myself. Its clear as day that they (TBTB) want us exterminated. How much more can we take? Until we are all dead?

Blatant Corruption Exposed as EU Blocks France's Ban on Monsanto's GMO Maize

Just after France legislators and officials moved to ban Monsanto’s genetically modified strain of GMO maize over environmental and health concerns, the European Union has decided to step in and re-secure Monsanto’s presence in the country — against the very will of the nation itself. This should come as no surprise when considering the fact that the United States ambassador to France, a business partner to George W. Bush, stated back in 2007 that nations who did not accept Monsanto’s GMO crops will be ‘penalized’. In fact, ambassador Craig Stapleton went as far as to say that the

I moved to the country and now get most of my food from friends raising their own animals or local farmers. I myself started raising rabbits for their meat. Self production and exchange of goods without money is the future of self-sustainability. Only way to really know what you eat.

That´s not a good argument. Every country is a young country. It´s as young as their youngest citizen is. As long as we don´t teach our children to do better, nothing happens. And to rais interest in politics.. whoaaa.. that´s a big duty!

I can´t believe the EU did this. I will make some research on Monsanto in my own country. Austria is kind of nr. one in naturally grown food. But it´s allowed to grow Mon 810 in Germany.

Stop with these Monsanto threads and just stop eating BS food. I don't eat any type of meat, I don't use a microwave, I don't eat anything that has HFCS in it. I just ate green beans with a little salt and that was my midnight snack, the average American would've drove to Mcdonald's got frankenstein food then went home and heated it up in the microwave. You guys have to stop wasting all your energy making topics about stuff you can't change. GMO's are here to stay and that's the reality, it sucks but it's reality and you're going to have to except it because it's only going to get worst.

Here in the UK, the 'House of Lords' is currently debating this subject.

They are talking about the difficulty of getting uk citizens to accept GM "they will not unless they are standing on a precipice with nowhere else to go" sorry didn't catch the name.

They are saying that more must be done to stop the rest of the EU from preventing development and innovation in this area.

I have been trying to get an allotment to ensure that I can provide sufficient organic food for my family, with no success. I have been trying for 4 years!

We need to have projects like 'Incredible Edible' which has members of the community using all 'spare' land including public land to grow apple and pear trees, herbs, vegetables and so on. The food grown is available free to anyone in the community. THAT'S PROGRESS!!!!!

I anticipate more pressure on consumers to support GM.

I wonder if the related company which is supporting the Olympic games has anything to do with this push.

France should have it's own "Boston Tea Party" and burn everything Monsanto send them!

There is a protest on some test growing in Hertfordshire today. I really hope that the government grow a set of balls and put a stop to this evil before it destroys the entire planets food supply. There are few places left untainted by these crops, which are created purely for profit and not to control pests as they claim. But yet again, the greed of the people at the top is going to lead to us all being screwed, but they dont care as they will be richer.
