Monsanto Attack Survivors

On June 16th 2010   Millions Against Monsanto on Facebook was told they will be shut down due to lack of validation , whatever that means. 31,000 people's support this cause and will disappear along with some fantastic comments and links. I saved these posts and went through the 1200 links and took out what I thought I would need..

2. Get rights to screen anti-GMO films
3. MAKE anti-GMO films to distribute
4. Arrange for a local "GMO Awareness Day" where we could screen films, spread literature and host public speakers (including scientists who have spoken out against GMOs). This would be especially good on or near University Campuses.
5. Ads in local papers and mags (donated or privately paid).
6. T-shirts & bumper stickers
7. Have a booth at a festival, farmers market, outside the supermarket, etc.
8. Approaching farming communities door to door and in churches
9. Press releases with local activists
10. Strap on a TV and screen an anti-GMO film on your walking billboard at any agricultural convention, government building, farmers market, or just on the street
11. Approach hospitals, schools, and nursing homes educating them on GMOs and encouraging them to switch to a more organic menu
12. Encourage media networks (especially public ones) to interview scientists who speak out against GMOs by mass letters, telephone drives, or even demonstrations.
13. Seed Parties (a take from the Boston Tea Party). It would have a good chance of catching some local media attention.
14. street theater - heavy on the comedy... be ready with hand-outs for the crowd with ways for them to get involved.
15. Some kind of sign that you could put in your window signifying your house, business as GMO free

Sara Schiffman Broder I love the idea of a seed party- ALSO seminars on how to do your own farming. Indoors, apartments, big plots of land or big pots....I think that teaching people how to rely on themselves more would help too.

Rastafari Brethren Luxembourg Hi Carlito, It was someone's brainstorming idea that during a demonstration or agricultural event that Monsanto seed could be dumped in a river or burned. It would be symbolic, like a Boston tea party. In smaller communities it could actually make it into the media, like book burnings, cd burnings, etc.

Sara, would you be motivated to start a local chapter?

Carly Janelle Tuma Dumping the seeds in a river seems a little counter-productive. XD They could grow downriver and destroy biodiversity there, too.

Jody Graham Try to arrange lectures at bookstores and co-ordinate with authors who can speak, promote their books and do book signings.

Arrange lectures at organic cafes , coffee shops

Have a booth on Earth Day to play the movies on a tv, hand out info and talk to people, sell t-shirts, bumper stickers

Make dvd or cd's and hand out for free to people so they can watch what you have to say and give it to friends or just listen in the car

Make bookmarks and drop them off in libraries where the scrap paper is kept usually by the computers or near their bulletin boards. I've done this for my businesses - I don't ask permission I just place them there. Seems they don't mind as long as it is a bookmark

I still like the idea of all of us pitching in to fund this project: Here is another idea that may get people directed to a website - a Canadian organization Dogwood Initiative places clear stickers on our loonies ($1.00) coins that say the image that appears is an oil stained duck.Famous painter Robert Bates is part of this action.
I know when I got a loonie with this on it I had to check out the website for myself which was to keep BC coast tanker free. They sell these stickers for to people so they can put them on mnoney and keep the ball rolling. 42 stickers for $10bucks and the money raised can go to help the cause. The money isn't defaced since the decal doesn't actually damage the loonie when it's removed, so the founder says it doesn't believe they're breaking the law. If someone could set up a website with all the info and find a place to do these stickers up cheap you could sell them and it would create awareness. Let's face it money changes a lot of hands and travels far and wide so what better way to get exposure to a website than this. Money raised could go towards future campaign ideas or the farmers fund. Here are 2 sites about this loonie to check out so you understand what I am talking about:

Get a central website and list all local chapters (facebook sites or websites) where people can join and take action

Write companies you purchase goods from including seed suppliers and ask if they use gmo ingredients and there source. Let them know if they do they have lost a long-time customer and you will be telling friends and family. Compile the list of products and manufacturers that do and post on local chapters and central website

Contact farmers and interview if possible ask if you can publish the stories

Contact experts and officals who have been fired or discredited interview and publish with permission.

I like the idea of signs outside your house GMO FREE HOME this will get neighbours asking questions

Organize gardening events for kids and parents too after school or on weekends where you can talk about gmo food and the importance of growing your own heirloom seeds

Make anti-gmo brochures or business cards with plantable paper with some heirloom seeds in them so people can plant them and grow something at home - kids love this

Jody Graham Sorry thought of a couple more things people could do:

start a cafepress or zazzle store for local chapters design t-shirts, hats, posters, keychains, shoes.... for people to buy. You don't carry the stock all you do is design it, upload it and set the prices. These companies are reputable and will pay you when you reach $25.00 in commision. You could use this to raise funds for local chapters.

Place ads on free classifieds directing them to the main website if we get one

Read the Peta site they have a ton in their activist guide:

Frazell Thomas Bba Facebook can be a real annoyance sometimes. I can't seem to start a discussion thread and had to find one as close to what I intend to ask to post in. I bet I have to "like" this group before I can start a thread, but I'm not at that point yet.

I was invited to this group and have skimmed the page regarding it and this forum. I'm trying to figure out what it is that your group is seeking? I can agree with the labelling of GMOs in food, more labels on products is never bad (can never be too informed). But outside of that what is there to ask for?

I saw Food, Inc. and I agree that the patents that were awarded to a compnay like Monsanto were crazy, but that isn't a failure at Monsanto; it is a failure in policy. It sounds to me that you don't need a campaign against Monstanto as much as you need a campaign for clearer laws in the US.

The other arguments are reaching at best. For instance, the argument against Monsanto's marketshare in Soybeans. If their beans did not offer a value to the farmer why would the farmer buy them? The argument that Monsanto is bankrupting the US Agriculture industry is reaching for the same reason. I can't see why a farmer would buy Monsanto seed if its value (to him) was less than its cost. A farmer is a business person, just like Monsanto, and will make the choices that are in his/her best interest...

Sorry this couldn't be posted in a standalone thread, but I won't "like" the group until I can side with the views expoused.

Trish Wright ? @Frazell - "you need a campaign for clearer laws in the US." I agree 100% that our government is probably where the REAL failure has been, and that is where most of my anger is toward. But we have also learned a lot about this company and their practices and disagree with them. They have introduced several chemicals and such into the world over decades that have proven to be highly dangerious. This is not someone most people want providing our food. If you do a little research about them you may find what we are upset about. But I do agree that "you can't blame a guy (Monsanto) for trying", unfortunately our government has turned a blind eye to what the american people want.

Kimberly Usher Hey Trish! Good job.
May 18 at 8:55am · Delete Post

Kimberly Usher This from the PETA site suggested by Jody. It says you can start alone very good advice.

Planning a Campaign
A campaign requires a great deal of commitment, planning, and organization. While it's possible to do this alone, the support of others is very desirable. In either case, it's important to establish an identity as a group. Once you get going, others will join you. You, however, must expect to lead the way.

Your first step is to thoroughly research your opponents. Make a list of their strengths and weaknesses. Where are they most vulnerable? What arguments will they use to defend their position? A research project may already be jeopardized as a result of inadequate funding or its inability to produce results. Exposing these problems could be enough to tip the scales.

Think about the information that you gather. What do you hope to achieve? Decide exactly what you want your target to do. Know the alternatives to the current situation and be prepared to offer solutions. What is the minimum that you'll accept? Are your goals realistic? If your case is too weak, it's better to face that fact as soon as possible.

If you've got a good target, start developing your strategy. Begin by designing a timetable for your campaign. Then establish short-range goals. For example, if your long-range goal is to close down a pet shop, first set a goal to get a letter to the editor on the subject printed in a local newspaper. Your next goal might be to get another community group, such as a local humane society, to support your cause. Short-range goals keep momentum going and bring you closer to your target.

Prepare for countercharges. What claims will your opponents make to defend their actions? How will you refute them?

Decide whose support you really need to win. Be specific—don't just say "the public." Which part of the public? Which groups or individuals in particular? Consider the best ways to reach them. Whose support can you count on from the beginning? How will you work with those people? Analyze how you will win over or neutralize supporters of the opposition.

Trish Wright ? I actually like that "death" scarecrow image - could dress someone up like that easily!! I've been reading thru a lot of the discussion topics and I am trying to focus my thinking (I think I'm a lot like you Kimberly, think too much & am very creative). I unfortunately do not know much about our political structure and all of the freakin' agencies etc. to figure out where to begin. Wish I'd paid more attention to politics in my life. I need help to know who to write and how to compile lengthy jargon bills and scientific findings into simple terms that anyone can understand. I honestly don't want to wade thru all of the information. I feel that I know enough and that plain common sense should tell people that it's not a good idea for one corporation to have control over the majority of our food production. Who can help me simplify the information?
May 18 at 9:23am · Report

Kimberly Usher Exactly. Scarecrow, I like that too.
This morning I spent an hour reading this appeal court decision.
In case you want to parouse I added it.
My point is that me, who is not a legal person, have had to learn by doing it. I find these briefs and scientific journals become less alien to my mind when I spend time trying to read them. They seem to make more and more sense. The Appellate court judge who wrote it seemed very bias; he wrote that the trial judge who had originally heard the case had a "sagely opinion". It made me think of Elena Kagan (supreme court nominee) who wrote a breif for Monsanto in a case that is being decided at this moment in the Supreme Court. Read that one. At the very end the Monsanto lawyer said that our objection to GMO was "psychological". Do you see in between all so called legal jargon are prople like us who still say things that are normal human words to express their feelings?
My opinion is to take any bill from the internet that is already an act and copy and past but put your stuff in place of theirs. By combining a bunch of bills you could come up with an outstanding attempt. The next part would be to sell the bill and get support. You would do that by contacting all your representitives-state and fed. house and senate members. When they see a brief description along with a well thought out approach they with their knowdge can fix any mistakes or inapproprite wording. This could easily be done in Word.
You do not need to know all the medical terms. It's OK to just say what you believe is the truth. Hold up these scientific papers to support your argument. In these scientific papers there are observations and conclusions that are fairly easy to read and the few medical terms in it are just a different language all you need to do is translate. Like coagulate means clot.
I do google alerts --where you monitor other peoples searches that have your key word in it. You would not believe the different results you get. That's how I got the source I linked.
Your right all you need is your common sense.

Trish Wright ? hey Kimberly, I actually understand the medical terminology, it's the true jargon in the studies and the five thousand extra words the FDA writes into any conclusions etc. I read an FDA thing last night and I swear what they wrote in 6 pages could be summed up in one paragraph. I think they do this to keep "common people" from muddling thru it all. How do you argue the very basic point, I think a lot of us have, that WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW AND CHOOSE. Isn't that at the core of our complaint?

Kimberly Usher We need America to know...The attack on Facebook....

This is about stopping people from even thinking of coming on, or getting them off, if already on so, we can't exchange our views.
My brainstorm idea is to get all these really great organizations and people together, buying air time or a public access short (cheaper and can run it alot) that tells people we support FB and even if it is "evil" we all can change that just like we can change all the GMO and Monsanto evils.
Although, public access is being subverted in some areas with a new kind of system, where you have to go to a subtopic to find them instead on surfing along thru the channels (another problem!). It would be worth the effort. There are a lot of people, and here on Maui, who take a class to be a producer for $100 and then they get to use the equipment for free.
The people who join in this effort could highlight their organization's goals and wishes put forth so each group can be individually recognized. That would be the give for the take.
""Find a Voice thru Facebook" is supported by all these groups and they want you to know."

Kimberly Usher I think my idea about Corny the corn cob mascot is a good idea.
Another idea I had last nite was filling the needs that are outside the box.
Going around with paper petitions is way too complicated in so many ways. Like those guys recently in Cali. that presented petitions as legalize marijuana, but after you signed it you were signed up to the Republican Party, and who wants to criminalize marijuana more then them (ronnie reagan admin demonized hippies and pot).
So, to make our elected officers aware of the public's determination in taking on the pesticide and GMO industries, esp. Monsanto, getting out and, engaging in any manner with the public with the opportunity to go online through the internet petition process would show phenomenal numbers. Corny carrying an iPad I can see it.
Even if I don't have a corn outfit on, thinking that I do, would change my attitude, and outlook enough to get people engaged, interested and importantly listening.
Is it very easy to say in three sentences what the point is with Monsanto?
We need to find those sentences and use them all the time. To everyone we come in contact with.
There is another point of this thread and that's to think. While writing the above I thought of another idea! Exciting! I'm all over this one! Drum roll please....
A new thread asking for input...write 3 sentences that explain to someone the evil of Monsanto.
And now I need your input on this thread for the label for the new thread on the 3 sentences. Man I think way too much.

Kimberly Usher What to tell someone who says, when you say "NO to GMO", "What is GMO?".

Monsanto and GMO

1. Genetically modified organisms are part of a living organanism created by shooting DNA against a "wall', breaking it into pieces.
2. The DNA pieces are inserted in normal cells and grown through trial and error to find specific traits that are patented and exploited by Monsanto, a chemical company that is using bioengineering to conquer agro business and enhance the sales of their chemicals, without scientific study by independent sources.

3. The known danger is ignored, misunderstood, denied and hidden and, eventually will collapse natural agriculture practices; if not create a storm of fungus, molds, insects, super weeds, more modifying to combat those problems and endless cycles of trying to fix it which will create even more problems.

Edited by Alexis Baden-Mayer and Ronnie Cummins

In this issue:
In November 2009, over the objection of thousands of organic consumers, the NOSB voted to recommend to the USDA that the National Organic Program allow all genetically modified vaccines to be used in organic without any review. Currently, genetically modified vaccines are the one exception to the exclusion of GMOs from organic, but each GMO vaccine must be petitioned for use individually and be reviewed by the NOSB, which may grant or deny the petition. At the Spring 2009 NOSB meeting, National Organic Program staff admitted that GMO vaccines were being widely used on organic animals, although none had been specifically allowed as required by law, and encouraged the NOSB to change the rule to reflect the status quo. The NOSB did so, but the National Organic Program is hesitant to implement the recommendation. NOP director Miles McEvoy said that he would seek a legal review of the proposal before proceeding.

Genetic engineering is excluded from organic. There is one exception: genetically modified vaccines. Under current law, genetically modified vaccines must be petitioned for use and reviewed by the National Organic Standards Board to be included on the National List of allowed substances.

If GE tree flowering and seed production is allowed on the U.S. mainland on this large a scale, it will facilitate the approval of commercial large-scale release of GE eucalyptus or other trees. It will also facilitate the approval of other GE tree flowering field trials of native species like pine and poplar that could contaminate native forests.

May 23 at 7:34pm · Delete PostKimberly Usher Monsanto and GMO

1. Genetically modified organisms are part of a living organism created by shooting DNA against a "wall', breaking it into pieces.

2. The DNA pieces are inserted in normal cells and grown through trial and error to find specific traits that are patented and exploited by Monsanto, a chemical company that is using bioengineering to conquer agro business and enhance the sales of their chemicals, without scientific study by independent sources.

3. The known danger is ignored, misunderstood, denied and hidden and, eventually will collapse natural agriculture practices; if not create a storm of fungus, molds, insects, super weeds, more modifying to combat those problems and endless cycles of trying to fix it, which will create even more problems.

If anybody asks.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As you may know, Senator Leahy and Representative DeFazio are circulating a Congressional sign-on letter in the House and Senate asking USDA to maintain the ban on Genetically Engineered Alfalfa.

Monsanto wants to sell its genetically engineered (GE) alfalfa and wants the USDA to approve its permit application, but consumers, farmers, dairies, and food companies don't want GE alfalfa plants and seeds released into the environment.USDA's Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) admits that if GE alfalfa is approved:

* GE Contamination of non-GE and organic alfalfa crops will occur
* GE contamination will economically impact small and family farmers
* Foreign export markets will be at risk due to rejection of GE contaminated products
* Farmers will be forced to use more toxic herbicides to remove old stands of alfalfa

Yet, USDA has decided that these impacts are insignificant and have dismissed the concerns of farmers and consumers in our state.

The participants in the survey answer questionnaires about their health and submit blood and urine samples every two years. The agency then tests each sample for hundreds of pollutants and nutrients and, if present, measures the concentration.Read: Study Shows Link Between Bad Air and DiabetesUsing this data, the researchers identified three factors linked to high blood sugar levels, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s), heptachlor epoxide, and a form of vitamin E called gamma-tocopherol. A positive factor affecting blood glucose levels was beta-carotene; those with the highest levels had 40% lower prevalence of diabetes.PCB’s are a group of man-made organic chemicals that were used in a variety of products such as industrial electrical, heat transfer, and hydraulic equipment. They can also be found in oil-based paint, plastics, and floor finish. They have been banned from use in the United States since 1979 but may still be present in some products and materials made before that time.Heptachlor, a breakdown product of a previously common pesticide, was banned in 1988 however it persists in water and soil and can accumulate in the tissues of animals.

Analysis of the authors and their employers also reveals a pervasive conflict of interest that was not reported in the publishing journals. All authors in the network have ties, direct or indirect, to a for-profit, state-owned, vaccine manufacturer: the Statens Serum Institut (SSI). The mercury-containing vaccine investigated in the three studies was produced by SSI. Six SSI employees participated as co-authors in studies in which the safety of SSI products were evaluated.

The debate over genetically modified animals has been reignited in New Zealand after three cows died in a bungled experiment. A mutation caused the calves ovaries to grow so large they ruptured. The cows are part of a project by New Zealand's AgResearch to develop human fertility treatments using GM cows' milk.

that opposes a Codex document stating that countries can adopt
different approaches to labeling of GE food, in line with existing

say that mandatory labeling of food as GE/GM “is likely to create the

Thomas V. Tittle Killing the soil is perhaps not the correct way to describe what is going on. Roundup is sterilizing the soil. Its mode of action in plants is to block the shikimic acid pathway required to synthesize the essential amino acids, trypophan, phenylalanine and tyrosine. Mammals do not use this biochemical pathway but bacteria do. So Roundup over use is killing the beneficial microbes that plants need for maximum growth.
