Marchers in over 400 Cities Demand Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods and the Reduction of Carcinogenic Chemicals Used in Industrial Agriculture

WASHINGTON, DC – On May 23, 2015, for the third year in a row, hundreds of thousands of concerned individuals will gather across 38 countries and 428 cities to join in peaceful protest against the Monsanto Company as a part of the March Against Monsanto grassroots campaign. This movement seeks to raise awareness to the dangers surrounding Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds and cancer-linked herbicide Roundup.


In solidarity,

The Rape by Monsanto

A Poem by Balo

If bones were to break so easily,
I could only see them crushed
with a swift blade, swift pole.
I cross her face and down her bust
leaving only blood to fall,
I grab her by her neck
and drag through the floor
leaving splinters in her fingertips
and pain throughout her back
I hear the bones crush
and it makes me laugh.


A Poem by Stefanie Bennett

… Last night Terror – died.
It died, not as it had
Lived in its own black death
But with the soft glow
Of a green light about it.

I was cruel. I was… kind.
I took from it the aches
And anguish; a life spent
Battling the human elements.
I spelt Trust as a 4 letter word.

… Last night Terror – spoke.
It spoke in syllables as wide
As the sky. When faced with
Its own ghosted-in image
The din cannot be described.

And I, perhaps with a little
Too much of the Don Quixote
In me [wielding a rusty pen
Instead of a sword], made
The decision that

We kill for all reasons. Some
Bad. Some good. And
Some ‘out of pity’…

I erased – Terror – from
The vocabulary; as if time’s
Compass had not ever met
This wretched one.
I do not know if the killing

Will, in turn, intern me.
There was a green light
Blazing about it.
Possibly that indicates
A pardon.

Monsanto: Glyphosate is safe

In a preview of an upcoming documentary on French TV, Dr. Patrick Moore tells a Canal+ interviewer that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was not increasing the rate of cancer in Argentina.

Entertaining transcript:

“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” Moore insists.

“You want to drink some?” the interviewer asks. “We have some here.”

“I’d be happy to, actually,” Moore replies, adding, “Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”

“If you say so, I have some,” the interviewer presses.

“I’m not stupid,” Moore declares.

“So, it’s dangerous?” the interviewer concludes.

But Moore claims that Roundup is so safe that “people try to commit suicide” by drinking it, and they “fail regularly.”

“Tell the truth, it’s dangerous,” the interviewer says.

“It’s not dangerous to humans,” Moore remarks. “No, it’s not.”

“So, are you ready to drink one glass?” the interviewer continues to press.

“No, I’m not an idiot,” Moore says defiantly. “Interview me about golden rice, that’s what I’m talking about.”

At that point, Moore declares that the “interview is finished.”

“That’s a good way to solve things,” the interviewer quips.

“Jerk!” Moore grumbles as he storms off the set.

Because of Monsanto–

thank you letter

Dear Agent Orange Project, Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange, and the Youth Union of Vietnam National University of Agriculture

My name is Nguyen Van Hai, from Nghia Lo, Chi Dao, Van Lam (district), Hung Yen (Province). I was a soldier coming back from Vietnam war then realised that not only myself but my children were all suffering from the agent orange.

There has been a lot of difficulty going on in my life but I feel relief thanks to you all support. I was dreaming about the new filter system for very long time but without your help, I could never have that dream come true, so thank you very much for such a tremendous gift for us. The new filter system (including water tank, filter bed, RO water fiter, etc…), I believe, will help improving the quality of life for the whole family from now on.

I would like to say thank you to you all again for your great support. Wish you all healthy, happy, and lucky in life.

Sincerely yours,

Nguyen Van Hai

LEVERAGE, Knowing Monsanto & Dow

A Poem by Stefanie Bennett

Scissors know our healing does
Not come from books:

Does as
The wind does
Does arch
As the hand raised over-long
Does concentrate
On every pose
Does cheat
For the sake of comfort
The daylights from the living
Does assign
A dearth stance
Of which we are too familiar, cut
From the background

What scrap is to the stockpiling.
