For an insight into 'Monsatan' & its working practices, please do try to make some time to watch the extremely revealing documentary film : "Controlling Our Food" ; http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6262083407501596844 et fiat lux ...

I mean, the international corporations met a corrupt hungarian political class and their citizens were outraged. Just think of Microsoft's deals with the government or this Edith Herczog in the European Parlament...

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater's Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians.

I looked at that, and it wasn't proven. I think they did hire them, and I'll bet they have some left over GMO chemicals Xe Services could get rid of. I understand that the ownership of Blackwater is obscure.

Contacted by Scahill, the Monsanto executive Kevin Wilson declined to comment, but later confirmed to The Nation that they had hired Total Intelligence in 2008 and 2009, according to Monsanto only to keep track of "public disclosure" of its opponents. He also said that Total Intelligence was a "totally separate entity from Blackwater."

However, Scahill has copies of emails from Cofer Black after the meeting with Wilson for Monsanto, where he explains to other former CIA agents, using their Blackwater e-mails, that the discussion with Wilson was that Total Intelligence had become "Monsanto's intelligence arm," spying on activists and other actions, including "our people to legally integrate these groups." Total Intelligence Monsanto paid $ 127,000 in 2008 and $ 105,000 in 2009.

No wonder that a company engaged in the "science of death" as Monsanto, which has been dedicated from the outset to produce toxic poisons spilling from Agent Orange to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pesticides, hormones and genetically modified seeds, is associated with another company of thugs.

Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of "philanthropy." Another association that is not surprising. It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of "market competition" of capitalism.

I understand the idea of not liking "food elitists", but it's damn hard to see their GMO being let loose on the world, and the babies. I read in FDA's summary of DuPont's latest approved Pioneer high oleic oil GE soybean, that that DuPont tested it on five mice, (of course with five control mice), so I know it's safe.

Good luck to the Organization Against Agent Orange, at Monsanto's stockholder meeting Jan 24, St. Louis. I bet you'll be Roundup Ready.

These GMO crops, are sold in the U$A as food. (or drugs, clothing, soaps, and cosmetics).

Honey and bees are affected. Meat is produced by feeding this stuff.

Universities have the second largest group of GMO projects.

DuPont, Dow, Bayer and a shitload of other companies are bringing science food to the store.

I know that many think GMO foods are not what OWS should be concerned with. I'm far from an expert, but when corporations uses $cience and patent law, in combination with government (non) regulatory agencies, and the executive, legislative, and judicial branches for evil, it's US against them. Monsanto is just a flagship of corporate injustice. Look for products that say they are GMO free. I can't verify their products, but I buy ones that have a small green and white circle that says: USDA ORGANIC CERTIFIED. Also some have a green circles with their promise of no GMO content. Cereal and soy milk are available in large stores. These labels are governed by false advertisement laws. "Natural, and Healthy" do NOT mean GMO free. Buy local.

Monsantos mission is to monopolize ylour food supply. They are an evil despicable corporation. They will treat our food as a weapon against us by driving up the prices and they will be the only place to get it. GMOs destroy nature. This is one implosion I await with a smiling face. Fuck monsatan...monsanto!

George Soros is a major investor in Monsanto. Google it

[-] 1 points by jomojo (562) 2 years ago

Wall St. Journal reported the Soros sold off much Monsanto and invested in Motorola. He's slippery after so long as an oil man. Bayer is in the seed biz also. Seems life is worth BIG money. Thanks.

Which is why smart people are buying heirloom seeds and learning how to grow and preserve them on their own. (Those hoarding bastages!!!) lol

When OWS takes down the current "bad guys" and the "real seed owners" become the new 1%- they'll have a whole new group of people to hate.

See we republican leaning independents can agree on things:) Like I've said before, I believe that both republicans and democrats both have ideas worth spreading.

I hope it's not the last time we agree on something in 2012... :)

All over the Internet you can read that Monsanto is "the most hated corporation in the world". I suspect it is going to self-destruct before the end of the decade.

You can watch the award-winning documentary "The World According to Monsanto" on the Internet for free.

They take advantage of less educated farmers who actually believe the nonsense about higher yields... as well hard too say no when they get cute girls to run around and promote their bought scientific studies.

General public ignorance about GMO doesn't help either, but I hope you are right and people begin to wise up and buy organic. People that know need to educate others tho, most people simply have no idea that wheat is not the same as sheat..

[-] 1 points by jomojo (562) 2 years ago

It won awards? It needs updating. It's amazing how much credibility is given to $cientists, when they aren't helping the environment. They, and their political lackeys, should have to live in tents, on the cropland and shower in Round Up everyday.
