“If we fail to realize that March Against Monsanto is not about GMOs alone, then we have already lost the battle.”
Kelly L. Derricks
March Against Monsanto has set out to educate the world about the crimes Monsanto has committed against humanity. Monsanto and 6 other chemical companies have gotten away with murder for the last 50 plus years.
Agent Orange, the chemical weapon herbicide used most predominantly during the Vietnam War to clear the vast jungles of Southeast Asia, was thought of as the advantage that the United States held over the “enemy.” Agent orange was a 50/50 mixture of 2,4, D & Dioxin tainted 2,4.5,T. The herbicide was manufactured by 7 companies.
Monsanto was so greedy to take the market share of the D.O.D.’s money, that Monsanto’s Agent Orange was at 1,000 times greater the potency than any of the other 6 companies. Due to trying to rush the manufacturing process, dioxin became an industrial byproduct in Agent Orange.
Dioxin is second only to radioactive waste in its ability to destroy.
Many people are familiar with the devastation left in Vietnam from Agent Orange, from the scorched earth to the horrifying pictures of children with unspeakable birth defects. What most people are not familiar with are the millions of United States Veterans that were exposed to Agent Orange who ultimately returned home from the war with a death sentence.
The US Government, and Chemical companies hid as veterans voiced concerns of their ailing health after the war.
That same death sentence was then passed on to possibly hundreds of thousands of American children that were conceived when their parents came home from war and started families. A generational serial killer, Agent Orange stores itself in the fatty tissue of the primary person exposed and then is thought to mutate the DNA of the conceived child causing many of the same birth defects, diseases, illnesses and ultimately deaths, as are seen in generations of Vietnamese.
Hundreds of thousands globally have died and will continue to die drastically before the average human lifespan.
March Against Monsanto works diligently to make sure the public knows that the movement is not just about food. It’s about standing up to cronyism. Shortly after the first worldwide MAM event that was held, MAM, along with Kelly L. Derricks, set out to build an Agent Orange Education program that now serves as a model example of awareness being spread across huge spans of different generations.
For the last 50 years, Monsanto has gotten away with this crime. If there is no unity between organizations fighting for Agent Orange justice and those fighting for the labeling & banning of GMO’s, how many more years do you think it will take before you see a change? The answer, can simply be only one…. TOO MANY.
We want the world to know that the company trying to dominate the global food supply, and telling you that GMOs are safe to eat, are nothing more than murderers who should be tried and convicted. Monsanto, will tell you that they were contracted by the United States Government and therefore should have no accountability for the travesties created by Agent Orange. In fact, as the largest producer of Agent Orange, Monsanto themselves knew that the chemical was deadly. Besides, even in the worst case scenario, It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that there might be serious danger to humans if they are coming into contact with a chemical that turned lush green jungles into barren wastelands in a matter of hours. We are all fighting together to change that. We have rights, we have a voice, and we will be heard!
