“We need to ban glyphosate from our own communities as most governments fail to protect citizens” – Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji
What is glyphosate?
Glyphosate, perhaps surprisingly for a chemical so ubiquitously associated with our food, was not first used as an […]

Glyphosate is the primary active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.
There is no official figure for the amount of glyphosate used every year in the world. One estimate? 650,000 tonnes, which works out to a staggering 1.3 billion pounds.
Manufactured by Monsanto and a number of […]

Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.”
Then the press moves […]

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not essential for feeding the world [1,2], but if they were to lead to increased productivity, did not harm the environment and did not negatively impact biodiversity and human health, would we be wise to embrace them […]

Octopus. Land. Money. Control.
I’m going to describe a few tentacles. There are more. There are always more. But these are important.
Why am I bothering? Because you’ll get some idea of the forces arrayed against the people of Hawaii, who have passed measures to limit […]

Nutshell background: on both Kauai and Maui, voters decided to block Monsanto GMO-pesticide research and experiments, in which the population is the innocent bystander.
The people spoke.
And then their votes were corruptly overturned in court (see also the NY Times coverage of this story). The […]

In a previous article, I ran down Judge Barry Kurren’s wife’s connections to big biotech in Hawaii.
Now I have more. Much more.

Does the Judge have […]

Barry Kurren is the federal judge overseeing Monsanto’s lawsuit against the county of Maui.
Monsanto sued, after the people of Maui dared to say no. After they voted to stop new Monsanto/Dow GMO development on the Island.

This is a stunner.
On Election Day, Maui passed a local initiative blocking Monsanto and Dow from developing new GMOs in Maui County.
According to Ballotpedia, the winning war chest in the election was, overwhelmingly, composed of contributions from five individuals.

Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.
On Election Day, voters in Maui County passed a local ballot measure blocking Monsanto and Dow from further development of GMOs.

As we reported earlier this month, Maui’s voter-approved ban on GMOs in their county has met with opposition from the well-funded biotech industry. (See: Victory! Hawaii Leads Nation on Banning GMO Crops.)
Monsanto and others have challenged the voter […]

The first time I realized the money and the leadership of the anti-GMO movement was guiding millions of people into ballot-labeling initiatives, I pictured a million people in the street calmly marching in orderly columns against the Vietnam War.
They all held pretty pink signs that […]

The U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto is long accustomed to getting its own way. Through a combination of back-channel lobbying, opaque political funding and revolving-door politics, the multinational agrochemical and biotechnology corporation has subverted, corrupted and infiltrated the elected governments of countries around the […]

What if the very GM agricultural system that Monsanto claims will help to solve the problem of world hunger depends on a chemical that kills the very pollinator upon which approximately 70% of world’s food supply now depends?
A new […]

Logically, one might assume that “foreign” aid is legitimate aid to foreigners. A little digging reveals the true nature of “aid”.
For example, please consider the Foreign Policy Journal report Monsanto and Foreign Aid: Forcing El Salvador’s Hand.

Claire Robinson has written a stunning article exposing hidden proof Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide is poison:
“The glyphosate toxicity studies you’re not allowed to see,” gmwatch.org, July 2, 2014.
Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup, Monsanto’s product, which is used in hurricane-like proportions on GMO […]

Just last month, researchers published a new research paper in the Journal of Cereal Science (tagline: “Cereal Science for Food Security, Nutrition and Sustainability”) all about how genetic engineering could save the millions of people suffering daily from gluten intolerance. Gluten-free foods have now become a […]

Despite preaching “transparency” in its corporate policy, Monsanto is so secretive it has worked overtime behind the scenes to block GMO labeling, influence politicians and intimidate free speech – even outside its own headquarters.
