The Non-GMO march continues...
"Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people." - Kissinger
Time for me to get back up on my soapbox for just a second. Many of you know I took place in my first ever march. I am not an activist. I have never attended any sort of political march before. After reading, watching documentaries, doing my homework, I got on the Non-GMO project hard core.
On May 25, 2013 at 2pm est, this Global rally was in 51 countries and over 2 million people stood in March Against Monsanto.
Our house is completely non-gmo and all Organic now. I know so many people don't even know about Monsanto, or the dangers ahead of us. So many people don't even know what GMO is. While this power hungry company now owns 80% of the world's food. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!!
For those skeptics out there... Here are just a few fun facts to chew on.
Monsanto’s GMO products distort nature’s foods in ways that can now rewire your body and have been shown in animal tests to cause sterility, illness and death.

In the U.S., GMOs can be snuck into our bodies because they don’t yet have to be labeled.
Under the new “Monsanto Protection Act” GMO crops can be planted and grown without courts stopping them, even if there is evidence of danger (see Section 735 of H.R. 933), until an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is prepared — which can take years.
The Monsanto “rider” (Section 735) was snuck into a 240-page government funding bill and was hidden so most politicians, who rarely read the actual bills, probably did not even know it was there.
To date, no one in Congress claims ownership of Section 735, though speculation is emerging that Roy Blunt, a Senator from Missouri, is responsible. Blunt has serious financial ties to Monsanto. Monsanto’s home state is Missouri.
In Europe, which has mostly banned GMOs, the tide turned when people actually took to the fields to destroy the crops that were destroying their farms and their lives. We need to ask ourselves where self-defense starts when toxins are being snuck and forced into our bodies through the food, water, air and “laws.”
Even the birds and squirrels are smart enough to know not to eat GMO:
I am writing this today because Hollywood is now getting on board and trying to put into production production on our Science-Fiction(Faction) film about the danger of GMO and its consequences in the future, done in the spirit of "Blade Runner," "Terminator" and "Soylent Green," with a hint of "Schindler's List."
Their hope? To get out the word about the dangers of modified food. How it is killing people left and right. Communities being wiped out.
