Tens of thousands march worldwide against Monsanto and GM crops

The Guardian (May 24 2015): The third annual March Against Monsanto – begun by the Occupy movement – was held in around 400 cities in more than 40 countries from the Americas to Africa and Europe.

About 2,500 people staged anti-Monsanto protests in the Swiss cities of Basel and Morges, where the company has its headquarters for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Up to 3,000 protesters, rallied by environmental organisations including Greenpeace and anti-capitalist group Stop TAFTA, gathered in Paris, with Monsanto’s market-leading herbicide Roundup the main targets of protesters’ anger.

The controversial product’s main ingredient was recently classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the World Health Organisation.

“Looking for mass suicide? Go for Roundup,” read one placard at another French protest in the western city of Rennes.

Be Aware: May 25, 2013 !


This is a Call to Action for a Non-Hierarchical Occupation of Monsanto Everywhere

Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and unlabeled GMOs. Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products.

We urge you to help organize and attend the closest March Against Monsanto taking place on Saturday, May 25, 2013!

Read more - and PASS and SIGN PETITION!

Why do we march?Collapse )

(More on this issue to be posted! All are encouraged to provide links and info on the war on GMO's!)

I am posting this over at naturalliving, but prettying it up here first. Be sure to check out other posts at my JNL(today) including: http://www.naturalnews.com/035630_police_raid_activists_lawsuit.html

Recently, someone here requested ideas for foods to keep in her pantry. I thought I'd offer a response via a post. This might be useful to others, esp. newer members.

The top five superfoods to always keep stocked in your pantry
(NaturalNews) What is a superfood? While there is no specific definition for the term, a superfood is generally recognized by a few characteristics: high nutritional density and low calories, high fiber, high in omega-3 fatty acids, lots of antioxidant activity, and rich with phytochemicals that have the potential to prevent or even reverse disease.

Which fruits and vegetables are naturally the most detoxifying?
(NaturalNews) Detoxing in our incredibly polluted environment is not an occasional endeavor. In order to maintain a healthy immune system with a slightly alkaline pH, we need to consider constant slow detoxing to counter the "slow kill" from the...

GMO alert: top 10 genetically modified foods to avoid eating
(NaturalNews) Due to lack of labeling, Americans are still left at a loss as to whether or not what is on the table is genetically modified. This lack of information makes the avoiding and tracking of GM foods an exercise in futility. Below are just some of the food products popularly identified to be genetically modified...

When food prices rise, some blame investors...

"The age of cheap food is over," one trader, Alan Knuckman, told Der Spiegel. "Most Americans eat too much, anyway."

Some of you may support the protesters in Madison - fighting corporate-backed big government - hand-in-glove... Well, here's a significant voice of the movement: madison_fights . You are welcomed to join! There may also be other communities on the profile page in which you might be interested.

Also, Alex Jones was pretty interesting. Today's theory is that the protests, worldwide, have been concocted by Google, "see-eye-aye", USA, WIKILEAKS, and oil corporations, all seeking to drive up the price of oil, so that when it goes to $200/barrel, they will open up the Arctic for massive drilling, drop the DOLLAR, &c. This would include a war involving Iran, Israel, Egypt., etc. Plus, inflation will soon skyrocket here. Lots of tangents, but it's the thought that counts. And when you realise that a plan by KOCH INDUSTRIES to buy up Wisconsin's Oil and Coal infrastructure is part of what is behind the BILL in the Wisconsin Senate, it doesn't necessarilly stray too far from the realm of possibility...
