Participating in the March Against Monsanto at Laguna Beach was a privilege and an honor. Thanks to everyone for coming out and advocating for a better world.
As I mentioned in my speech, the city of Laguna Beach didn’t allow any sales “on the cobblestone,” so I donated a lot of books to march participants. Kathleen Hallal “organically” volunteered to set up donations through the work that she does at GMO Free News to help cover the cost of my trip and book donations.
Thank you, Kathleen, and thank you, Jack, for your technical expertise in setting up a Go Fund Me campaign. Donations are much appreciated. Whether you provide a cash donation or not, you can “donate” to the cause by purchasing We’re Monsanto, Book One and/or We’re Monsanto, Book Two and then writing reviews on Amazon. Reviews make or break authors. Your review will encourage others to learn more about the multiple problems associated with the biotech industry and genetically modified organisms.
Undoubtedly, the positive reviews for Book One are partially responsible for the fact that a Japanese publisher recently published and distributed my book to bookstores across Japan.
Remember as I said in my speech, glyphosate hates your guts and Monsanto hates gutsy people. Be gutsy and get your glyphosate level tested. This issue is so important to me that I personally purchased 100 urine specimen cups and passed them out both in Sitka, Alaska, and Laguna Beach, California.
The test results will be shared with Congress later this year. By testing for PCB levels, the citizens of Anniston, Alabama, used that information to help them win a judgment against Monsanto for its egregious and willful poisoning of those people. Testing for glyphosate may eventually produce similar results against Monsanto for its egregious and ongoing poisoning of the world with RoundUp. Go to FeedTheWorld.info and learn how to test yourself for glyphosate.
Thanks everyone and many organic blessings to all of you!
P.S. Following are a few of the thoughts from my speech.
Scientists who are willing to sacrifice their own humanity in the name of science, are far too willing to sacrifice the rest of humanity as well.
The foundation of the Temple of science is cracking and crumbling and the priests who officiate in the Temple of science are not prophets or seers, they are toddlers with little understanding and callous disregard to the consequences of their action. And as head thinkers, they are cut off from the more important parts of what it means to be human, members of the human family, and members of the web of life. They are blind, disabled, and handicapped; unable to see what is painfully evident and obvious to the rest of the world.
As complete human beings, we experience truth with our minds, our hearts, our souls, and with an understanding that we are members of the web of life, not masters or creators of the web. As complete human beings, we can ask and answer the questions that corporate scientists and politicians refuse to address.
“The aggregate frauds that have been perpetrated on behalf of genetically engineered foods constitute by far the biggest fraud in the history of science.” — Steven Druker, author Altered Genes, Twisted Truth
“I well remember how horrified I felt when I learned that scientists had succeeded in reconfiguring the genetics of plants and animals. . . . It seemed a shocking corruption of the life forms of the planet.” – Dr. Jane Goodall
“The right to search for truth implies also a duty; one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.” – Albert Einstein
We do a disservice to organic and non-GMO farmers when we say that GMOs should be banned until proven safe. They’re not safe. That fact was proven the first time genetically modified pollen contaminated a natural plant. And that’s just the start.
Is it safe that GMOs have virtually destroyed India’s conventional cotton and Canada’s conventional canola and is in the process of destroying Mexico’s corn?
Is it safe that agribusiness and GMOs have resulted in a loss of 93% of agricultural biodiversity in the past 80 years?
Is it safe that chemical intensive GMO monocultures are destroying soil biodiversity?
Is it safe that chemical intensive GMO monocultures are leading toward the extinction of birds species, bees, and butterflies?
Is it safe that Monsanto and gang threaten, intimidate and silence scientists who are critical of GMOs?
If it safe that Monsanto regulates Regulatory agencies including the USDA and FDA?
Is it safe that Monsanto and gang buy presidents and bribe politicians?
Is it safe that Monsanto is currently working to making seed saving illegal?
Is it safe that one of the most hated corporations in the history of the world exercises control over governments, trade policy, and the global food supply?
Is it safe that large-scale GMO based agriculture has driven thousands of family farmers from their land to urban ghettos?
Is it safe that thousands upon thousands of Indian GMO farmers committed suicide to escape from debt?
Is it safe that GMOs have decimated the value of US agriculture?
Is it safe that Monsanto and gang spend millions to keep GMOs unlabeled?
Is it safe that chemical companies refuse to disclose the contents of the chemical cocktails they spray around Hawaiian schools and neighborhoods?
Is it safe that the TPP and TTIP will make it illegal to label GMOs and to ban Roundup?
Following is the conclusion of my book We’re Monsanto: Still Feeding the World, Lie After Lie, Book Two:
Revolution and freedom are the unlikely children of oppression and tyranny. Earth’s children will one day rise up and free themselves from oppressive governments and from corporate entities such as Monsanto. On that day Monsanto will cease to exist. And on that day freedom-cherishing Americans will reclaim their country and their liberty.
But long after Monsanto is dead, the seeds of the biotech industry—the seeds of deception, the seeds of destruction, the seeds of death, and the seeds of suicide—will continue to grow, spread, infest, infect, and contaminate the DNA of the world and quite possibly contaminate the DNA of our posterity.
For that reason alone, as well as dozens of other equally compelling reasons, the revolution against the corruption of nature, business, and government must be swift, sure, and where possible, complete.
Success is not optional and failure is not an option.
May the seeds of the revolution we plant today fill the Earth with love, compassion, health, liberty, peace, biodiversity, and a world filled with free and natural seeds of every kind.
