March Against Monsanto began in 2013 following the complete corruption surrounding the outcome of California’s Prop 37, a ballot initiative that would have required the labeling of all foods made with genetically engineered ingredients.
Since then, MAM’s platform has evolved to focus on the numerous issues involving the biotech conglomerate, far exceeding original concerns about labeling and rampant pesticide use on such a large percentage of the food supply.
However, marching against Monsanto is about so much more than our food supply, as important at that reason is and always will be. As citizens all over the world prepare to take to the streets for the 6th international MAM march on May 20th, here is a brief summary of four of the many reasons other than GMOs to March Against Monsanto.
1. Attack on Life
While it’s true that no human is truly safe from Monsanto’s poisons, women and their reproductive health seem particularly under attack. Glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, has been found in the breast milk of nursing mothers, the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies, placentas, prenatal vitamins, and tampons.
Glyphosate is known to cause infertility, miscarriages, and cancer and has been banned in countries all over the world.
Coincidentally, infertility rates are staggering with one in six couples depending on the pharmaceutical industry’s fertility drugs and expensive medical procedures like in vitro fertilization to have babies.
And never fear..if expensive fertility treatments are unsuccessful, scientists are hard at work on creating genetically engineered babies.
This is not about “designer baby” technology or choosing a specific eye color, etc….this is about the complete and total transformation of the human genome, a technology known as transhumanism. Both the UK and US governments have deemed the technology that literally creates GMO babies to be legal, and genetically modified human embryos are already being grown in a lab near you.
2. War Crimes
Monsanto has had a stake in manufacturing chemical agents for warfare dating back to the Vietnam War when it produced Agent Orange, which was used against one million Vietnamese and over 100,000 American soldiers and allied troops. More than 72 million liters were dumped in the dense jungles (Operation Ranch Hand) and, as a result of such toxic exposure, second and third generation victims of this poison still suffer today as a result of their fathers and grandfathers service during the Vietnam War. (Read more about Operation Ranch Hand by clicking here.)
There has never been justice for those affected, and Monsanto has never once been held liable for these heinous crimes against humanity.
It didn’t end with Agent Orange, however.
According to redacted Army documents, Monsanto is the sole producer of white phosphorous (WP), a horrific chemical weapon that is being used against civilian populations in Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and El Salvador. (Source)
White phosphorous, often compared to Napalm, causes the victim’s skin to melt away from the bone and most exposures result in fatal injuries.
“These weapons are particularly nasty because white phosphorus continues to burn until it disappears. If service members are hit by pieces of white phosphorus, it could burn right down to the bone.”
As if it’s not concerning enough that Monsanto’s WP is being used against innocent civilians at the hands of our government, it should be headline news that this chemical is also being injected into our children.
Nothing is safe from Monsanto…not our food, not our water, and not our medicine.
Last fall, Moms Across America funded research that proves glyphosate has contaminated five different childhood vaccines, with the most shocking levels found in the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. (Source)
The hypocrisy of marching against Monsanto but marching in to get vaccines should not be lost on anyone…
Let me make this crystal clear. Monsanto’s weedkiller is being injected into your children along with formaldehyde, aluminum, and aborted fetal cells.
The safety of injecting glyphosate into a human has never been tested. Not once, not ever.
Three main ingredients are used to formulate glyphosate: glycine, formaldehyde, and phosphorous acid (which is so poisonous and so reactive, it is commercially stored underwater.) Highly concentrated phosphorous acid is used to produce white phosphorous, the chemical weapon being used against innocent civilians.
If your child has received any of the following shots, they have been injected with glyphosate (glycine, formaldehyde, and phosphorous acid):
-DTap Adacel (Sanofi Pasteur)
-Influenza Fluvirin (Novaris)
-HepB Energix-B (Glaxo Smith Kline)
-Pneumonoccal Vax Polyvalent Pneumovax 23, (Merck)
-MMR II (Merck)
Still feeling confident about vaccinating your baby? Do you really know what’s in that syringe?
In case you missed it, in 2013 Monsanto acquired The Climate Corporation for a cool $930 million dollars under the guise of expanding its digital platform, stating that “data science is the key to its long-term growth and the glue that connects its breeding, biotechnology, chemistry and microbes offerings.”
According to Monsanto, Climate Corporation’s unique technologies “help the global agriculture industry to stabilize and improve profits and, ultimately, help feed the world.”
Nice try, Monsanto. This move was nothing more than an effort to further biotech’s monopoly on our food supply by selling more services to the farmers who already buy the company’s toxic seeds and chemicals..
It’s also worth mentioning that everyone’s favorite bio-pirate owns nearly 4,000 patents relating to stress tolerance, climate adaption, geoengineering mitigation technology, and drought-resistant crops, and is already using bacteria-resistant seeds to combat the same bacteria that is being sprayed into the atmosphere for weather modification purposes. (All patents can be searched here.)
Have you ever heard of RFID Environmental Manipulation (patent# 7645326)?
“The patent involves the use of a reflective blanket of aluminum oxide-laced cloud cover to act as reflectors of radio frequency transmissions and the same increase the strength of such radio frequency signal.
The aluminum oxide should only be introduced only when the environment is vacant of humans, preferably at nighttime, when radio wave propagation is at its highest rate of efficiency. The formula for aluminum oxide is Al(2)O(3). It can be toxic if inhaled in large quantities. It can cause coughing, mucous production and shortness of breath.”
Isn’t it interesting that among Monsanto’s many patents there is this one for aluminum-resistant gene technology (patent# 7582809)?
(Click here for confirmation from NASA that aluminum, as well as lithium and barium, is sprayed into the atmosphere.)
Even a second grader understands that what goes up must come down, and the ties between geoengineering and genetically modified foods are blatantly evident. (An excellent article about Monsanto’s patents and geoengineering by Barbara Petersen for Farm Wars can be read by clicking here.)
Join us on May 20th, 2017 in cities all over the world in the fight for our planet. Let’s educate our communities and build a mighty coalition for health and the environment! It only takes one person to plant the seeds of change…be that person for your community!
Think global, act local.
