Somebody (or bodies) destroyed Roundup Ready sugar beets in southern Oregon
And the FBI is on the case. Good, it's about time they go after the real criminals.
Over the course of two nights in early June, an unknown person or group of people did significant damage to two plots of land used to grow
genetically engineered sugar beets in Jackson County, Oregon. The plots are on private farmland leased and managed by Syngenta.
The group Oregonians for Food and Shelter (ofsonline.org...) is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification,
arrest, and conviction of the person and people involved. OFS will evaluate any reward claims and will make the final decision on dispersal of
This was from a comment below the article -
The "community group" offering a reward - Oregonians for Food and Shelter - is staffed by lobbyists registered with the state of Oregon and is
funded by corporate chemical conglomerates.
How Monsanto sugar beets were forced on us -
In 2010, a federal judge revoked USDA approval of the seeds in response to a lawsuit filed by the Center for Food Safety because full environmental
impact statements for the seeds were not provided.
The problem with the judge’s order, however, was that Monsanto had so successfully crowded out sugar beet seed competitors that once he ruled
the beets “illegal” it quickly became clear that there were no conventional sugar beet seeds to be found. So America faced the prospect of total
Armageddon the zombie apocalypse cats and dogs sleeping together a 20 percent reduction in that year’s sugar crop. In response — and in
defiance of the federal judge’s order — the USDA allowed farmers to plant GM sugar beets anyway.
The USDA, in defiance of a Judge's order - out of control alphabet agencies again. Of course, they're headed by Monsanto cronies.
The environmental review puts a high priority on the absence of alternative seeds and the potential disruption to sugar supplies
So, create a crisis which only you - the mega corporation - are able to fix. How convenient.
I really hope they don't catch the perpetrators because the punishment will most likely be outrageous - you don't mess with these guys. Kind of like
the penalties given to the banks who perpetrated our financial Armageddon....oh wait. nvm.
Go, you rebel Oregonians!
