A stern warning to those who abuse their
On May 25, about two million people from 436 cities in 52
countries marched in protest against GMO giant Monsanto for
genetically engineering agriculture and food while suppressing negative
Growing evidences derived from research and investigation
show genetically modified organisms engineered mainly in
US laboratories lead to serious health problems including
causing cancer and infertility.
The insect resistant crops break the natural food train and
erode the soil with possibly irreversible disastrous
consequences to the environment.
Suspicions mount that the Monsanto and other major bio-corporations'
objectives are not just making big money at the expense of
people's health and environmental well being, but further
serves the goal of population
However, Monsanto Co., based in St. Louis, insists its artificial
products are as safe for human as the organic ones and refuses
to give consumers a choice to decide for themselves if they
want to eat them or not. The US Senate just freshly voted
down a bill that would allow state to require labeling of
genetically modified foods. When you realise how many Monsanto
guys occupy a senior position in the White House and
how many politicians in Obama administration and Congress
used to have or are going to have a senior position at Monsanto,
you'll know why they cast such immoral vote.
China, the biggest
dumping ground of Monsanto's GMO garbage, thanks to
the former and current premiers (the former premier Wen
Jiabao in particular), and the former and the current
Agriculture Minister (the former minister Sun
Zhengcai especially), is one (or maybe only) country
in the world that witnessed police disruption of rallies
against the US company on the global action day. In some
cities, such as Beijing where the Agriculture
Ministry situates, and such as Chongqing where the former
Agriculture Minister works, the protesters were savagely
beaten and arrested by police.
