Monsanto's Propaganda Machine Exposed

"One large and important producer of genetically modified (GM) crops - Monsanto - has engineered public opinion to reduce critical scrutiny," writes a group of South African, Mexican and American academic researchers. Monsanto has followed "a tried-and-true set of PR tactics designed to tie GM crops to the question of hunger, to silence debate on the topic, and to challenge critics as technophobic. This PR strategy removes debate that is vital for public and environmental health." In portraying GM crops as a "solution" to hunger worldwide and promoting company defenders from developing countries, Monsanto has positioned itself "as a development partner, as a benevolent philanthropist who has technology to 'share.'" This PR strategy is "seductive," the researchers explain, in that it suggests easy answers to complex problems. It also "attempts to depoliticize; the public relations machinery, through active co-optation, becomes an 'anti-politics machine.'"



"The humans will eat this stuff, but the animals won't." U.S. farmer, ACRES, USA Special Report 19 September 1999.

After four months of retrieving anecdotes from Kansas to Wisconsin, I think its high time to sample the producer community more thoroughly to see how many stories there are out there.

Tell us more about the hogs that wouldn't eat the ration when the GMO crops were included. About the farmer who said ' Well, if you want your cattle to go off their feed, just switch them out to a GMO silage.'

About the farmer who said that his cattle broke through an old fence and ate down the non-GMO hybrids but wouldn't touch the Round-up ready corn, and as a matter of fact, "They had to walk through the GMOs to get to the Pioneer 3477 on the other side."

About the cattleman who saw the weight-gain of his cattle fall off when he switched over to GMO sources. About the organic farmer with a terrible deer problem on his soybeans, and when he drives out at night there are forty of them mowing down his tofu beans while across the road there isn't one doe eating on the Round-up Readies.

About the raccoons romping by the dozen in the organic corn, while down the road there isn't one ear that's been touched in the Bt fields. Even the mice will move on down the line if given an alternative to these 'crops'.

What is it that they know instinctively that most of us ignore? I have been traveling around with a bag of contaminated cob corn on the floor of my vehicle, and I have begun to think of it as if it was a bag of plutonium."

In the Wake of Vaccines By Barbara Loe Fisher Issue 126, September/October 2004

Vaccines: Mercury, Autism and Chronic Disease Recognized for journalistic excellence, and now reprinted in one 32-page, full-color publication, these articles contain information no parent should be without, including details on the use of the known neurotoxin mercury in flu vaccines, alarming evidence of the possible connection between vaccines and autism, exploration of the rise in chronic disease, stories of parental activism and advocacy on behalf of their vaccine-injured children, and the hopeful example of one child’s recovery from autism.

This is an EXCELLENT website on the vaccine issue:

"If one really wishes to know how justice is administered in a country, one does not question the policemen, the lawyers, the judges, or the protected members of the middle class. One goes to the unprotected - those, precisely, who need the laws' protection most - and listens to their testimony." -- James Baldwin (1924-1987)
