We had a very successful March Against Monsanto on Saturday, May 24, 2014 in Laguna Beach. Somewhere in the vicinity of 350 Orange County residents and visitors joined together to sound the alarm concerning the dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms in our food supply as well as the proliferation of chemicals used in agriculture. Bio-tech giant Monsanto received the brunt of the chants, however, there are many other companies that contribute to the unsustainable patterns that are destroying our biosphere.

As concerned citizens that share our planet with one another as well as other precious life forms, it behooves us to investigate if we are contributing to our demise or can we make very necessary changes in our lives to turn the degradation around. On Friday, June 13th, GMO Free Orange County will be hosting the movie screening of UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS. This is a fundraiser so that we can continue our mission to educate the masses. A minimum donation of $5.00 is requested, although no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Please RSVP on Facebook or send your reservation to gmo.free.oc@gmail.com.

Why do we march?

  • Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
  • In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-lead research on the long-term effects of GMO products.
  • Recently, the U.S. Congress and President collectively passed the nicknamed “Monsanto Protection Act” that, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
  • For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and genetic makeup.
  • Monsanto’s GMO seeds are harmful to the environment; for example, scientists have indicated they have caused colony collapse among the world’s bee population.The following information is from Pamm Larry, founder of LabelGMOs – California Grassroots:A list of 40 health organizations that have statements about GMOs http://gmofreeusa.org/
    gmos-are-top/there-is-no-consensus-on-the-safety-of-gmos/.

    Here is the beginning of a list of 1200 peer reviewed studies showing harm http://gmofreeusa.org/gmos-are-top/gmo-science/.

    297 (and counting) Scientists worldwide say there is NO scientific Consensus that GMOs are safe- http://www.ensser.org/increasing-public-information/no-scientific-consensus-on-gmo-safety/.

    The Seralini Study was NOT a fraud and that story/mess is NOT over yet.

    This is what happens to scientists who dare to say anything against the chemical companies who make pesticides and GMOs.

What would happen if

What are solutions we advocate?

  • Voting with your dollar by buying organic and boycotting Monsanto-owned companies that use GMOs in their products.
  • Labeling of GMOs so that consumers can make those informed decisions easier.
  • Repealing relevant provisions of the US’s “Monsanto Protection Act.”
  • Calling for further scientific research on the health effects of GMOs.
  • Holding Monsanto executives and Monsanto-supporting politicians accountable through direct communication, grassroots journalism, social media, etc.
  • Continuing to inform the public about Monsanto’s secrets.
  • Taking to the streets to show the world and Monsanto that we won’t take these injustices quietly.

We will not stand for cronyism. We will not stand for poison.

That’s why we March Against Monsanto.
