This is what we should be thinking about this Memorial Day, Monsanto:
MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO
WORLDWIDE PROTESTS ON MAY 23
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.
SEE YOU IN THE STREETS!
Puddles of slate gray sludge with degraded bones
Drop the bomb, Mr. Bleau.
The day comes to a close, Agent Orange entering the embryos…
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.
“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.
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.
Nguyen Van Hai
