Mon Mar 19 2012Global Days of Action to Shut Down Monsanto
Mon Mar 19 2012Occupy, Social Justice Groups Blockade Entrance to Monsanto
Monsanto closed its facility in Davis, California on March 16th after 150 occupiers from throughout the state blocked the entrances to their Davis facility at 1910 5th Street. The occupiers reported that they shut down operations at the corporate giant, which produces genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and is notorious for its inordinate influence over the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
On March 16th in the Monterey Bay Area, approximately two dozen community members, many dressed as zombies, demonstrated at the office of Seminis, Inc., which is owned by Monsanto and located in the city of Salinas. The group was protesting Monsanto's efforts to "take total control of the world's seed supply by patenting genetically modified seed."
Demonstrators distributed a flier that listed numerous "things Monsanto does not want you to know," such as: Foods containing GMOs do not have to be labeled in the U.S.; Monsanto puts small farmers out of business; and through major retailers, consumers have rejected Monsanto's genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH).
