(NaturalNews) The worldwide March Against Monsanto takes place this Saturday, May 24th, as millions of people will once again gather to protest the despicable food imperialism practices of the most-hated corporation in the world: Monsanto.

Check out the official March Against Monsanto website for a list of cities hosting the event, covering every continent and nearly every nation on the planet.

Over 350 cities are hosting the event, including every major city in the United States. The mainstream media, however, will once again selectively ignore this event, as they are completed owned and controlled by the financial interests of their advertisers which consist largely of junk food companies using lots of GMOs. (Even the HFCS used in sodas comes from genetically modified corn.) The March Against Monsanto is truly the "million mom march" that the mainstream media is desperately trying to pretend isn't taking place.

This year's march takes place following an important victory for consumers: Vermont has nowenacted a law requiring mandatory GMO labeling on all foods sold in the state. The biotech industry is expected to try to block the law with a series of lawsuits, but even if they succeedthe global trend against GMOs cannot be stopped.

GMO "science" smacks of "tobacco science"

All the scientists pushing GMOs today almost perfectly resemble the sellout doctors, scientists and medical authorities who recommend cigarettes three generations ago.

There was a time when Big Tobacco ruled the realm of "science" and even ran full-page advertisements in the Journal of the American Medical Association claiming, "More doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette!" (Click here to see the ad for yourself.)

The mantra of the day was that cigarettes had, "no evidence of harm." This is the exact same false rationalization currently used with GMOs. Of course, the only reason there is "no evidence of harm" is because any scientists who happen to document evidence of harm are immediately railroaded, censored and threatened for daring to conduct real science. Any scientific work that manages to get published showing health risks of GMOs is quickly retracted after journal editors are threatened and intimidated by biotech operatives. (Yes, the biotech industry routinely uses mafia-style tactics to censor the truth about GMOs.)

GMOs have never been tested for long-term safety in humans, so any claim of "no evidence of harm" is obviously ludicrous. A person could say the same thing immediately after leaping off a cliff. "Hey, there's no evidence of harm!" And there isn't until you hit the ground, at which point it's too late to stop the damage.

GMOs present real, significant risks to humanity and our planet

GMOs present very real risks of ecological damage, genetic pollution, harm to animals, harm to humans and even sudden collapse of the global food supply. None of these risks have been sufficiently and scientifically studied, much less ruled out. The entire GMO industry operates in complete abandonment of the Precautionary Principle of modern science, which says we should err on the side of caution instead of releasing unknown, self-replicating organisms into the wild.

One scientist has bravely warned that GMOs could unleash global "ecocide" which destroys the ecosystem. Although this risk is very small for each genetically modified seed variety, the aggregate risk becomes very large over time as more and more genetically engineered crops are released into the wild.

It is not "rational" or "scientific" to expose the entire human race to the unknown risks of a self-replicating organism being carelessly released into the wild with little more than vague assurances from corporate-funded "scientists." And if the biotech industry were so interested in doing good on our planet, why are all their operatives engaged in mafia-style tactics that include death threats, intimidation and character assassination attempts?

Whole Foods has announced they will require all foods sold in their stores to be GMO labeled by 2018. GMO labeling battles are heating up all across the USA, with Oregon now in the running for GMO labeling laws.

Many countries have banned GMOs and most recently the State of Vermont passed a GMO Labeling Law. The shocking chart above shows how deeply embedded GMOs are with our elected officials. For more info on theDANGERS OF GMOS click here. -GL

no GMO

By Brandon Baker, EcoWatch – May 12, 2014 –http://tinyurl.com/lsfepsv

Regardless where you live, May 24 marks the annual opportunity to March Against Monsanto.

The event protesting the GMO (genetically modified organisms) giant will simultaneously take place in more than 400 cities in 52 countries that span six continents. That’s up from 286 cities in 36 countries last year. Among the marches is one in St. Louis, MO, which is home to Monsanto’s headquarters.

“Historically, Monsanto has brought us DDT [(dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane], PCBs [polychlorinated biphenyl], Agent Orange and dioxin,” reads a Facebook invitation to the St. Louis march. “Monsanto’s reckless use of chemicals calls into question their testing standards, lack of scientific rigor, disregard for the precautionary principle and disregard for human life and the ecosystem.

“Currently, we’re faced with Monsanto’s seed patenting and subsequent extortion in demanding pay for seeds from future crops, the proliferation of genetically modified foods (GMOs), use of dangerous pesticides, and their efforts to control the food supply. Monsanto leaves damaged farms, people, animals and entire ecosystems in their wake.”

The event aims to highlight the various modes of distress Monsanto has created for people around the planet. For example, more than 250,000 impoverished farmers in India have committed suicide as a result of Monsanto’s Bt cotton seeds not performing as anticipated. Sterility, infant mortality, birth defects and increased cancer risks are among the health risks associated with Monsanto chemicals and seeds.

“We will not allow this ‘Garden of Eden’ to be compromised by the destructive practices of multinational corporations like Monsanto,” Josh Castro, organizer for Quito, Ecuador’s march, said in a statement for the global march. “Biotechnology is not the solution to world hunger. Agroecology is. Monsanto’s harmful practices are causing soil infertility, mono-cropping, loss of biodiversity, habitat destruction and contributing to beehive collapse. GMO crops cross pollenate with traditional crops, risking peasant farmers’ livelihood.”

Local March Against Monsanto events will take place in 47 of 50 states in the U.S.

“Monsanto’s predatory business and corporate agricultural practices threatens their generation’s health, fertility and longevity,” said Tami Monroe Canal, the founder of March Against Monsanto who began the event to protect her children from GMOs. “MAM supports a sustainable food production system.

“We must act now to stop GMOs and harmful pesticides.”
