US protestors against GM foods block shipments at Monsanto's company in California
Occupy Monsanto activist Rea Abileah said the group held the protest to begin its upcoming global week of actions against Monsanto starting Monday, with similar events to take place at other company facilities in the U.S. and overseas.
"This is a protest of Monsanto's genetically modified seeds and toxic pesticides," Abileah said.
She said there were about 23 protesters and they wanted to shut down shipping and distribution operations. The broader goal is to educate the public, she added.
Abileah said the action wasn't specifically related to California's Proposition 37, a November ballot measure that would require labeling on most processed foods to explain whether they have ingredients from genetically modified organisms.
Adam Eidinger, Occupy Monsanto's representative in Washington, D.C., said the organization thinks all modified foods should be banned.
"Genetically modified food is an experiment and should be treated as such," Eidinger said.

Proponents of GM crops say GM crops are no different from conventional types, which is ludicrous - they are genetically different. Since the government does not require GM crops to undergo safety testing before they are approved and does not require labeling, it is virtually impossible to track any links to human health problems.


Here is a funny quote from a Monsanto employee: "While we respect each individual's right to express their point of view on these topics, we do not believe unlawful actions are an appropriate way to further any cause," Helscher said.


Nevermind that they're breaking the laws of nature.


There have been some studies done on rats and hamsters and the results are shocking. Some effects don't show up until the second or third generation, though, like sterility.

Here was one immediate effect:

"When Ermakova fed male rats GM soy, their testicles changed from the normal pink to dark blue!"

ahhh


Remember to check your labels, even some peanut butters contain soy.
Forgive your enemies, it messes with their heads.

Much obliged!


I should have mentioned there's a picture of the rat testicles at the last link. Actually, I probably should have put that in the title.
