It is increasingly important for the world, yes, the whole world, to Smash Monsanto!
Do whatever you can.
Ah, good old Venn diagrams… Nice aren’t they? Creepy, these two, eh?
Do you see what we are fighting? Do you see the self-perpetuating corruption? The infamous ‘revolving door’? Surely you do. How can you not?
Note that these diagrams do not contain everyone, just some random high-profilers… there are more of the guilty named in the links, but be warned if you want to look into it… this rabbit hole is deep and veiny. Sound repulsive? Good! It IS!
These corporations; and there are many; have their tentacles everywhere. There should be a diagram for every corporatist concern, the military-industrial complex would be good. Could sell them as playing cards like they did for the 9/11 government perps.
Sorry about the brevity of this thread… I am having a bout of writer’s block,. There’s also a bit of a time thing going on here, trying to, you know, get things done. One or two of them at least. It is hoped that you’ll be inspired by the insanity you see delineated in the graphics above to find out more. Even if it’s just reading the threads and articles linked below.
Don’t forget to pass on what you’ve learned to others… that is the important part.
Relevant threads for your research, each with much linkage and info:
This is a trailer for what looks to be a very important film by Bertram Verhaag of Denkmal Film called Scientists under Attack – Genetic engineering in the magnetic field of money. The film’s website is www.ScientistsUnderAttack.com.
Eager to see it, I am, I am!

A nice big hat tip to my great friend Skylaire Alfvegren for passing this along this heads up.
To add another meaty bit to this thread, here are three videos, secretly recorded by Occupy Monsanto at the 2012 closed-door Monsanto shareholder meeting.
If you would, please visit the site of Occupy Monsanto. This group is taking action. They currently have a plan. From their site:
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 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 on September 17th, 2012.

All I can say is that we all need to take this stuff very seriously, dear readers. We are talking about our food. All of our food. What can possibly be more critical an issue than that?

Please give a ‘Thumbs up’!
There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door.” One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.
Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.

Check this out: What Monsanto Doesn’t Want You To Know-The Genetic Food Conspiracy:http://mysticalmusingsandpolitics.blogspot.com/2010/11/what-monsanto-doesnt-w…
A great documentary exposing the evil agricultural nightmare called Monsanto and the story of Roundup and Roundup Ready Soybeans. A 2004 documentary film which makes an in-depth investigation into unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly made their way onto grocery stores in the United States for the past decade. It voices the opinions of farmers in disagreement with the food industry and details the impacts on their lives and livelihoods from this new technology, and shines a light on the market and political forces that are changing what we eat. The film decries the cost of a globalized food industry on human lives around the world, and highlights how international companies are gradually driving farmers off the land in many countries. Potential global dependence of the human race on a limited number of global food corporations is discussed, as is the increased risk of ecological disasters — such as the Irish Potato Famine (1845–1849) — resulting from the reduction of biological diversity due to the promotion of corporate sponsored monoculture farming. The issue of incorporating a terminator gene into plant seeds is questioned, with concern being expressed about the potential for a widespread catastrophe affecting the food supply, should such a gene contaminate other plants in the wild. Legal stories reported by the film related how a number of farmers in North America have been sued by Monsanto; and the defendant of the Monsanto Canada Inc. v. Schmeiser case is interviewed.
Another classic… I think I may be on a food binge… Ha!
Seriously though, I cannot stress enough the importance of realizing what it is one is eating… and that some of those things could be harmful in ways no one on earth can know or predict.
Be aware that this goes for every single person on this earth… it is as serious as a heart attack. For it could well give you one. Or a lot worse. And your kids? Fuggeddaboudit … they’re goners.
If you’re not really upset, you need to smell the roses, bud.
I’m thinking I’ll just go ahead and hit publish… the two uploader descriptions are pretty wordy and the film quite handily speaks for itself. Do yourself a favor and watch it.

Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner uses reports by FAST FOOD NATION author Eric Schlosser and THE OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA author Michael Pollan as a springboard to exploring where the food we purchase really comes from, and what it means for the health of future generations. By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry. The USDA and FDA are supposed to protect the public, so why is it that both government regulatory agencies have been complicit in allowing corporations to put profit ahead of consumer health, the American farmer, worker safety, and even the environment? As chicken breasts get bigger and tomatoes are genetically engineered not to go bad, 73,000 Americans fall ill from powerful new strains of E. coli every year, obesity levels are skyrocketing, and adult diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies.
This is a great film that everyone needs to see. Worth seeing again if it’s been awhile. This thread is meant mostly for those new to the scene, though, those just starting to realize that it is just not what it seems, this world we live in.
It is really quite frightening when you come to see the big picture, to know what is truly happening all around us, to know that when you take a bite out of that burger, you’re eating cow shit. Yeah.
There is a fine juxtaposition at an hour in, 57:30 really. After a wonderful segment with a real farmer who gives us truth they switch focus to a rather inane organic convention featuring their own poisons and then we see the Stonyfield company. I used to buy their yogurt. Used to. The company goes to the extreme opposite of the real farmer we have just learned a lot from. They sell tons of no longer completely good food to meet the needs of that repugnant monstrosity known as Wal-Mart. Antithesis much? And worst of all, yes worse than that – they have wholeheartedly endorsed GMO “foods” … yeah … and quite recently. Which means Stonyfield are in point of fact completely full of shit. I am sorry, but I can not buy things from sell-outs. I cannot trust that kind.
The film gets into some feel good bits after that through to the end.
I wonder if we can re-achieve a healthy way of life. I wonder if we can eradicate the poisons we face – before Monsanto and Pioneer and Smithfield and Tyson and all the others kill every last one of us… all for their inhuman greed.
