Why Does Monsanto Need an Army of Mercenary Soldiers?

The Monsanto Company likes to proclaim that they are the good guys, here to selflessly feed the world, help with sustainable agriculture, and, as if those lofty goals are not enough, champion human rights across the globe. 

So why does such a noble, benevolent company require the services of the most notorious mercenary army of modern times?  Why did Monsanto dish out half a million dollars to an arm of Blackwater called Total Intelligence.

What is Blackwater?

Blackwater is now known as Academi.
“…previously known as Xe Services LLCBlackwater USA and Blackwater Worldwide—is a private military company founded in 1997 by Erik Prince and Al Clark. Academi is currently the largest of the U.S. State Department’s three private security contractors. Academi provided diplomatic security services in Iraq to the United States federal government on a contractual basis.  Academi also has a research and development wing that was responsible for developing the Grizzly APC along with other military technology. The company’s headquarters is located in Arlington County, Virginia.”

How are Blackwater and Monsanto connected?

While rumor had it that Monsanto had actually purchased Blackwater, that is not the case. Monsanto contracted with the mercenary group for “security services”.  In 2010, an illuminating report called Blackwater BlackOps, written by Jeremy Scahill, of The Nation, revealed that Monsanto had given a contract worth up to half a million dollars to Blackwater.
Monsanto has a history of hiring an unscrupulous mercenary army.  Be aware during this weekend’s activism that agent provocateurs may be afoot, particularly at the larger events.  Don’t rise to the bait of those who would try to deflect protesters from their goal. The goal remains clear – we are there to peacefully spread awareness about Monsanto and about the health and environmental hazards of GMOs.  Around the world, the movement for real food has created an enormous global awakening.  Through the power of social media and alternative news, we are cresting a wave with this event.  We must maintain our unity and momentum, and stay focused on the goal, because with every attack made against us, we may be reassured that Monsanto is on the run.

  1. There's nothing wrong with GMOs, science has proven that GMOs are harmless, there are no side effects, and are actually healthy for you.

    You guys are being a bunch of paranoid conspiracy theoriests. No, Monsanto is not trying to take over the world.

    GMOs are perfectly safe. Stop with your fear-mongering.

  2. Wow, long string of numbers and letters. Your imperious declarations of safety are very reassuring. I think I'll go get a Big Mac right away. Now that you have pronounced us safe I'm going to ignore testimony of millions of people around the world. The farmers who are being robbed at gavel point, the fascist affair Monsanto is having with the Government, the hundreds of independent labs confirming that roundup is killing the Bees, and all the rest of the mountain of evidence against Monsanto. I'm going to set all that aside, and get me a Coca Cola.
