This is a Call to Action for a Non-Hierarchical Occupation of Monsanto Everywhere Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and GMOs.
Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto.
In 2010, Monsanto spent $120 million on advertising to convince consumers that GMO foods are safe, despite scientific evidence suggesting otherwise.
In India, farmers have been devastated by the debt after being duped into buying GM seeds. Terminator seeds* are designed to not produce the next generation. Over 250,000 Farmers have committed suicide as their ability to save, breed, and exchange seeds has been taken. With few seeds on the market, farmers are even more dependent on Monsanto to buy seeds. The Indian cotton farmers have bought Bt cotton and are forced to pay royalties each time they collect their own seed. This violation of seed sovereignty leaves families in debt for generations and should be illegal.
Many countries have already banned GMO's including Peru recently. But, Peru isn't the only country to ban GMO foods or place restrictions on them. Last year, Russia stopped imports of Monsanto's GMO corn after a French study linked the it to cancer; France also has a ban on the corn. Ireland has banned the growing of GMO crops since 2009. Japan and Egypt also ban GMO crops. In 2010, Switzerland extended it's ban on genetically modified animals and plants, banning GMOs until at least 2013.
The plants grown from Monsanto seeds are designed to be treated with toxic herbicides, pesticides, and chemicals which have been suspected to increase allergies. They have also been linked to decreased fertility, asthma, organ failure, and even cancer.

To monsanto it doesn't matter that they haven't tested their GMO on long term. They are happy that they changed the DNA of the plant and now they can patent it and make money everytime someone grows it. And if the farmers don't pay up, they will just take their land and everything they own. They don't want to end world hunger. They want to rob the world under the guise of helping.
