[1] Monsanto_skull_flyerA worldwide [2] March against Monsanto is scheduled May 25th 1013.
You can find the
[3] arrangements in your country here.

Here, you can sign a [4] petition[4] : “To the governments of Germany, France and the Netherlands and all contracting states of the European Patent Convention:   As concerned citizens, we urge you to take the lead to fix European patent law by calling on the Administrative Council of the European Patent Organisation to close the loopholes that allow corporations to patent plant varieties and conventional breeding methods. Clear and effective safeguards and prohibitions are needed to protect consumers, farmers and breeders from the corporate takeover of our food chain.”

Through recent lobbying with the federal government, Monsanto was able to protect their GMO industry and get Congress and President Obama to pass a provision that exempts them from GMO liability. This law was signed into motion on March 26 and allows biotech companies like Monsanto to bypass federal approval tests and plant their GMO crops despite well known health risks.

[5] Activist Post 13 May 2013 The Supreme Court unanimously backed patents on “self-replicating technology” like Monsanto’s Roundup Ready soybeans on Monday and along with it, backed the controversial licensing agreement preventing farmers from using seeds more than once.

This comes not even two months after Congress passed the so-called “Monsanto Protection Act,” which was later signed into law by Obama. One senator even apologized for the bill after public outcry.
[6] Prison Planet 16 may 2013: Just when you thought the latest Supreme Court ruling in favor of Monsanto’s anti-farmer patent policy was enough evidence of Monsanto’s deep relationship with the US government, hundreds of new cables from the State Department and embassies around the world reveal that your taxpayer dollars are being used to push Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds.

Even mainstream news websites like Reuters are now reporting on the cable details, as it becomes more than crystal clear that the United States government is literally assisting Monsanto in promoting it’s health-crushing genetically modified seeds and escalating the corporation above the law. The same corporation busted for running slave-like work rings where ‘employees’ were required to work on the GMO corn fields for up to 14 hours a day or [7] Tumors-Rats1have their pay withheld.

Right: [8] Monsanto maize fed tumorous mice.

As it turns out, taxpayer dollars are being funneled into the pockets of international lobbyists who specifically negotiated deals that benefited Monsanto — not even the government itself. This even included crushing the biotech competition in many countries where Monsanto wanted the edge. All performed by the U.S. State Department.

One circumstance from 2009 regarding Spain is particularly telling, as the cable tells us that the embassy was demanding ”high-level U.S. government intervention” at the “urgent request” of Monsanto to squash biotech competitors in the country so that Monsanto could come scoop up the market for itself. The organization Food & Water Watch has released a detailed report on the cables.

In [9] 2012 Moms across America had Monsanto´s GMO maize analyzed and compared with non-GMO maize. The result was horrifying

Acc. to the Table left, GMO foods are not only dangerous due to poisonous genetic modifications  - but also substandard as foods as compared with nonGMO food.

[8] Recently, I wrote how the EU Commission tried to have an unsuspicious EU Parliament pass a draft on giving Monsanto a free hand for its poisonous and carcinogenic foods in the EU. I have found no further information on that session. Have my readers? The [11] EU is still discussing to permit GMO food. It is also not important, since both [12] Syngenta and Monsanto already have licences to grow a variety of GMO maize sorts in the EU. But of course, no one tells us!
