Monsanto on OCA's Millions Against Monsanto Campaign
Monsanto has, up until now, remained silent on OCA's Millions Against Monsanto Campaign. From their perspective, it makes more sense to ignore our criticisms and hope we'll go away, while they pretend that genetic engineering is being accepted as the new norm in agriculture. However, the Millions Against Monsanto movement and grassroots efforts to require mandatory labels on GMOs in 14 states are getting too big to ignore. The growth of organics, increasing public concern about the damage to public health and climate stability, and the failures and dangers of GE crops are all approaching critical mass. More people care about sustainable food and farming than ever before, and more and more people are angry about the lies and practices of the Biotech Bully of St. Louis. Monsanto has literally become one of the most hated corporations on earth.
Monsanto just acknowledged this growing awareness and sentiment against genetic engineering in an article published on May 19th in Brownfield Ag News for America concerning the Food Dump held in Chicago as part of OCA's recent Millions Against Monsanto Campaign.
