Save organic and family farming - STOP MONSANTO and HR 875

All of us here are well aware of what we need to do in the near future and being self sufficient is at the top of the list. The following links are to Progressive Radio Network and Gary Null. Gary is just awesome at dealing with health, finance and all things that are essential to life on this planet.

 PLEASE follow the link and read up on the proposed farm bill. HR 875. It will take our food supply out of our hands and hand it over to the corporations - if you dont think that this will happen you are mistaken.

This Monday March 23rd gary ill be dedicating his radio show to this issue. He is a remarkable resource and I hope that you all listen to him. Here is the link to the home page of Progress Radio Network where you can listen to his show both live daily and on the archive.

bruin36 - Thanks for bringing this to our attention - HR 875 has escaped the MSM which is overloaded with nonsense.  This is an extremely important issue as food will become a patented product that places big obstacles to private production. 

Besides being restrictive, the homogenization of our food supply encourages biological attacks through parasites and viruses.

Our nation gave up its right to produce its own currency before I
was born. Now we witness an even more profound usurpation. The right of people to produce their own food and exchange it between consenting parties is a fundamental freedom. Our founders did not even consider the vile idea that anyone would attempt to curtail this right. Call your
congress people.  202-224-3121 or http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/ Tell them to vote
NO on HR 875.

Another good explaination here:

And from this side of the pond see:

http://www.gmfreecymru.org.uk/ is of course the root address.

This would be funny if it wasn't true :(

Monsanto is evil.  Their intentional destruction of heirloom seed stocks and criminalization of saving seed is utterly despicable.  They are systematically attempting to first destroy, and then control, our food supply.  In doing so they're causing irreversible damage to the biodiversity of our planet and quite potentially threatening the survival of our species in the process. 

All of this is done at the expense of the independent farmers around the world. 

F$#k you, Monsanto!

Wow Chris. Tell us how you really feel! Tongue out

 

No. I have seen documentaries on Monsanto. They are evil as hell. So is Archer Daniels Midland. They'd grind their own grandmother up into livestock feed if the margins were high enough.

Monsanto Planting Seeds in the White House?

Apparently,
President Obama is considering appointing Michael Taylor to head the
new Food Safety Working Group. Who's Michael Taylor?

Mr.
Taylor is a lawyer who began his revolving door adventures as counsel
to FDA. He then moved to King & Spalding, a private-sector law firm
representing Monsanto, a leading agricultural biotechnology company. In
1991 he returned to the FDA as Deputy Commissioner for Policy, where he
was part of the team that issued the agency's decidedly
industry-friendly policy on food biotechnology and that approved the
use of Monsanto's genetically engineered growth hormone in dairy cows.

His
questionable role in these decisions led to an investigation by the
federal General Accounting Office, which eventually exonerated him of
all conflict-of-interest charges. In 1994, Mr. Taylor moved to USDA to
become administrator of its Food Safety and Inspection Service... After
another stint in private legal practice with King & Spalding, Mr.
Taylor again joined Monsanto as Vice President for Public Policy in
1998.

Taylor was also responsible for writing the rBGH labeling
guidelines for the FDA. The guidelines specifically prohibited dairies
from stating that their products contained or were free of rBGH.
