A global grassroots movement is building to challenge Monsanto in a struggle for our planet’s survival. On May 25, 2013, awareness concerning the dangerous health effects caused from products made and sold by Monsanto Chemical Company have gone viral – and Hat’s Off to this global awareness.
The rallies were organized by the “March Against Monsanto” movement, and over 200,000 activists participated in a massive, global campaign that included 6 continents and over 40 nations.
It is sad that consumer concerns are not defended by lawmakers, and it is sad that the damage to humans and to the environment caused from corporate influences cannot be easily stopped.
Greed Over Health
On a positive note, this growing awareness is exciting. Change is hard for most people, but the protests against Monsanto’s unwillingness to stop damaging the Earth and it’s inhabitants will bring about needed change.
Helping Or Harming Others?
There is NO DEBATE that no person, place, or thing has the right to harm another living being on this Earth. No one owns the Earth – no one controls the Earth – no one has the right to put a price-tag on the Earth. It has taken global societies far too long to act on this awareness, and mega-corporations, such as Monsanto, have been allowed to profit and control living things for far too long. Realizing this fact is the most important way to stop future damage to all life on our planet.
Consumers are rightfully angered by the lack of governments across the world to take action on Monsanto safety issues. Politicians and courtrooms will continue to stall making decisions on this issue. Despite overwhelming public support, Vermont legislators are dragging their feet on a proposed GMO labeling bill because Monsanto has threatened to sue the state if the bill passes. A Vermont lawyer in support of the labeling bill stated that Monsanto is just a a law firm that sells seeds.
Monsanto Owned NutraSweet®
Don’t forget that Monsanto Chemical Company bought aspartame from its founder G. D. Searle Pharmaceuticals and created the NutraSweet Company. For nearly three decades, Monsanto owned BOTH saccharin and aspartame, and profited from a monopoly on the diet sweetener industry. Monsanto has grossly abused its freedoms, in my opinion.
Monsanto has been on the other side of health and wellness for over half a century. It’s exciting to see the world waking up to this fact!
