Monsanto is now in full retreat against a global grassroots rejection
of its poisons and lies. The company is backpedaling on every front
now, even admitting defeat in Europe and now trying to focus its last, desperate efforts on the United States and Brazil.
But even in the Americas, Monsanto is losing on every front: GMO
labeling legislation is cropping up in over a dozen states, the global March Against Monsanto
demonstrated global grassroots unity against GMOs, and even the
so-called “science” behind the “safety” GMOs is revealed as utter
hogwash now that GMOs have escaped Monsanto’s experimental wheat fields and contaminated commercial wheat crops in America.
Japan has halted U.S. wheat imports and South Korea joined in as well. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
company has announced it is going 100% GMO-free, and massive boycotts are under way against brands that tried to block the GMO labeling ballot measure in California (Prop 37).
We’ve reached the tipping point against Monsanto
Jeffrey Smith of www.ResponsibleTechnology.org
has always talked about a “tipping point” being reached on GMOs, after
which the flood of consumer awareness and demand would force food
manufacturers and retailers to begin the process of ditching GMOs. I believe that tipping point has now been reached. In fact, I believe the March Against Monsanto
was the final push over the fulcrum of the tipping point, and I am
ecstatic that so many people all around the world marched in the streets
to protest global food injustice while the wholly-discredited mainstream media sat back and pretended the march never even took place!
In one fell sweep, the tipping point against Monsanto was triggered and the whole world realized the mainstream media has zero credibility. I’ll call that a victory any day!
