I was thrilled when I read this article. If enough people stand up to Monsanto, we might collectively be able to bring them down! I hope the farmers get every dime they can from these monsters!
I pray that the people of the WORLD will stand up and say “no” to the G8 summit meeting, although I wonder if we even have a voice.

This past weekend, President Obama hid out from protesters at Camp David. He was hosting the leaders of the world’s eight wealthiest economies, known as the G8. As they readied to meet, on Friday, Obama put forward his New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition.
Notice how the titles of the ‘elite’ operations always suggest that the victim of their takeover will actually be benefited in some fashion from their benevolent (wink, wink) actions. Monsanto needs to be stopped.

No matter where you live, Monsanto is (or should be) an issue. I thought this article was worth sharing. Please feel free to re-blog, if you so desire. We need to expose these monsters and their bought off politicians for who they are.
Blatant Corruption Exposed as EU
Blocks France’s Ban on Monsanto’s
Published: Thursday 24 May 2012
France legislators and officials moved to ban Monsanto’s genetically modified strain of GMO maize over environmental and health concerns, the European Union has decided to step in and re-secure Monsanto’s presence in the country — against the very will of the nation itself. This should come as no surprise when considering the fact that the United States ambassador to France, a business partner to George W. Bush, stated back in 2007 that nations who did not accept Monsanto’s GMO crops will be ‘penalized’. In fact, ambassador Craig Stapleton went as far as to say that the nations should be threatened with military-styled trade wars.

I am so sorry to litter my blog with political posts, but people need to wake up. All of our Nations are being overtaken by the bankers, huge corporations, pharmaceutical companies. etc. Please take the time to read this, then by all means, share the information with others…..
Obama nominated Dartmouth University president Jim Yong Kim, M.D. to head the United Nations World Bank. Most people think that UN agencies benefit poor people, but this is far from the truth.
The UN World Bank claims to fight poverty in developing nations by financing infrastructure projects. But the UN World Bank is really a tool used to acquire Third World natural resources through conditions on loans that are extremely difficult to repay. The raw resources are then privatized by insider multi-national corporations. The World Bank actually creates more poverty.
…………….. (also excerpted from the article…..
If the UN World Bank was truly a benevolent organization, the focus for the Third World would be on support for independent farming, clean water and food.
I thought this is worth sharing. Monsanto effects us all. We need to be aware of what they are doing, and what they are getting away with courtesy of the Environmental Protection Agency. I have to wonder, whose environment are they protecting, anyway?
2,4-D and the dioxin pollution it creates are too dangerous to allow, period, but in the hands of bad actors like Monsanto and Dow Chemical the dangers increase exponentially. What’s the Environmental Protection Agency doing? Helping cover-up the chemical companies’ crimes!
In February, Monsanto agreed to pay up to $93 million in a class-action lawsuit brought by the residents of Nitro, West Virginia, for dioxin exposure from accidents and pollution at an herbicide plant that operated in their town from 1929 to 2004.
That may seem like justice, but it is actually the result of Monsanto’s extraordinary efforts to hide the truth, evade criminal prosecution and avoid legal responsibility.

Given the fact that we all live on this planet and without our natural resources, beginning with our food supply, we would ALL cease to survive. Ditto for all of the lovely flowers, and animals that we share with each other through photographs and chats on our blog pages. Thus I am using my blog to help spread this message. Monsanto must be exposed and they must be stopped. They are robbing us of our very environment. This is not just an American problem. It is a problem the World must face in order to maintain a planet for future generations. Think about it, and please help if you can. If nothing else, if we all boycotted Roundup, it would be a beginning. Mass efforts make big impacts.
This is an important topic that we should all be made aware of . Monsanto is a cancer in all of our societies. They are just plain evil. Please research them yourselves and you will see what I mean. Posted below is the beginning of an article I just read and thought worthy of sharing, since Monsanto is a problem for us all, whether you are aware of it, or not. Read on, please ….
While proposed government regulation, previous legal action, and the threat of agricultural collapse does not seem to affect Monsanto’s daily operations, it appears protesters can and do. Dozens of protesters disrupted Monsanto’s California office in Davis, an area close to Sacramento, through vocal activism and calls to shut down the biotech giant with deep known ties into the United States government. Braving the rain, the dozens of protesters — not thousands — were successful in shutting down the entire office for the day.
The response to the activism presented by the protesters highlights just how powerful of a voice even just a few individuals have. If even a small group of anti-Monsanto grassroots activists can pause the entire business operations of a Monsanto corporation hub for the day, imagine what thousands or millions of concerned citizens could do. Monsanto is afraid of public outrage, which is why they are continually trying to squash labeling initiatives that would visually demonstrate to consumers just how ubiquitous their genetically modified ingredients are throughout the food supply. Many consumers now know and understand the negative effects of Monsanto’s creations, and oftentimes are consuming them unknowingly thanks to a lack of proper labeling guidelines.
“We were successful today in shutting down Monsanto,” said Steve Payan, the event organizer.
