This entry is part 8 of 8 in the series Monsanto The Hague

Hello Everyone…

Below is the latest update from the Monsanto Tribunal. Please spread this far and wide. This will be part of the next GMO Tuesday.

Also I invite you to join my Twitter Campaign in asking President Donald J Trump, the EPA, the FDA, & the USDA. ..

PLZ get the poison out of our food 

You can find my on Twitter @aladayllc together we can get the Monsanto Propaganda Machine.

Update From Monsanto Tribunal. ..

Your organisation supports the Monsanto Tribunal and we are very grateful for that. Without your help we could not have organised this important process, supported by over 1200 organisations and 100.000 individuals. Most of the work was done by volunteers and we are all very happy that we could be part of this important step towards an end to corporate impunity.

 

On April 18th the Judges in the Tribunal delivered a very powerful message to the world. Monsanto is violating basic human rights to food, health and a healthy environment and this could be considered as ecocide if this crime would be recognized in international law. The legal opinion is a strong message to corporations, governments and United Nations, but also to the consumers and producers in the world.

 

Now this process lies in our and your hands. The wider we can spread the message, the stronger the effect. No longer should crimes against humanity and nature go unpunished, no longer should the cost of pollution and destruction be neglected. Help us to spread the opinion in as many networks as possible: consumers, lawyers, government circles, companies etc.

 

Please help us spread the legal opinion:

  • Write about it in your newsletter and publications, with a link to the legal opinion (also available in French, Spanish, Dutch and German on the other versions of the website)
  • Repeat the message several times
  • Organise a presentation or discussion about the legal opinion
  • Write letters to legal or government organisations about this legal opinion
  • Send us your ideas to create attention for this important opinion

In case you are not able to help us directly in dissemination the legal opinion, you might be able to give us some financial support. This will enable us to spread the opinion in as many networks as possible to maximize the effect. Most of the work in the Monsanto Tribunal was done by volunteers including the judges, but we need some staff to help us do the office work. If we can afford it we will also look to help Monsanto victims in their court cases and help to start new cases. Additionally, we have started a new plan to calculate the true cost of Monsanto (and Bayer if the merger goes ahead) activity. So please donate, small or large donations are very welcome on:

Here is a snippet from the link above…

I.i. An Opinion Tribunal
The International Monsanto Tribunal (hereinafter “the Tribunal”) is a so-called “Opinion Tribunal”.
An Opinion Tribunal is neither an ordinary court that falls within the judicial order of a State, nor a court set up by an international organisation. It is an “extraordinary” court born out of the determination of civil society that takes the initiative and is actively involved in it. It follows the long tradition of opinion tribunals created in 1966 under the impetus of the philosophers Bertrand Russell and Jean-Paul Sartre and whose principles are well-known. In 1979, at the initiative of the senator and theorist Lelio Basso, the Russell-Sartre Tribunal extended into the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal1. Several opinion tribunals have already been held in different countries and on various subjects2
.
Opinion tribunals are tasked with examining, using a judicial method, the rules of law applicable to highly problematic events or situations which directly affect and are of serious concern to people or groups of people as well as to society as a whole. Their objective is twofold: alerting public opinion, stakeholders and policy-makers to acts considered as unacceptable and unjustifiable under legal standards; contributing to the advancement of national and international law.
The work and conclusions of opinion tribunals are shared with all relevant actors and widely disseminated in the national and international community. Most opinion tribunals have had a considerable impact, and it is now accepted that they contribute to the progressive development of international law.

This entry is part 15 of 15 in the series Whom do your elected officials represent???
Oak Barrel Guy!!!!

 

For years I have been saying what common sense should be telling everyone about the GMO products and the “Substantially Equivalent ” argument that has plagued our food Suol.y fir the past 25 years . Now it appears that some 25 years later ( it is important to understand that number 25 YEARS) the general public might be able to scream loud enough that it will drown out the Monsanto Propaganda Machine.

 

WHOM DO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS REPRESENT?????

Whom do Your Elected Officials Represent???

Currently one would have to say Monsanto.  But now that the patients have worn off and Monsanto can no lie get control every aspect of testing their products…well lets just say their ruse is about to come to an end.

One cannot take vital minerals and nutrients it of a plant and call it “substantially equivalent”

Here’s a piece from the Organic Consumers Association.

Asking Mr Trump via Twitter…PLZ get the poison out of our food

One of the biggest scams Monsanto

perpetrated against consumers was getting its GMO crops declared “substantially equivalent” to non-GMO crops—a coup that allowed the biotech industEveto unleash GMOs into the food system with no independent pre-market safety testing.

First, a little history on substantial equivalence: 

The concept of ‘Substantial Equivalence’ was first introduced in 1993 by the Organisation for Economic Development (OECD), an international economic and trade organisation, not a public health body.  The principle states that if a new food is found to be substantially equivalent to an already existing food product, it can be treated the same way as the existing product with respect to safety. This concept has greatly benefited the trade of GM produce, allowing it to effectively bypass regulatory requirements that would apply to novel food and other products including novel chemical compounds, pharmaceuticals, pesticides and food additives, all of which require a range of toxicological tests and can be subject to legal limitations on safe consumption/intake.

Independent (as in not on the biotech industry’s payroll) scientists who have previously argued that GMO foods are not substantially equivalent to non-GMO foods have been dissed and discredited by Monsanto.

Now there’s a new peer-reviewed study led by Dr. Michael Antoniou at King’s College London, that once again suggests that GMO foods—at least a specific variety of Monsanto’s Roundup-Ready GMO corn—are nowhere near to being “equivalent” to non-GMO foods.

And what makes this Roundup-Ready corn “different,” say the authors of the most recent study, has serious implications for your health.

So is our food safe with Substantially Equivelant GMO products???

Read ‘New Study Shows Major Molecular Differences between GMO and Non-GMO Corn’ 

Read the study 

So many of you ask what can we do???? Every day we can use Twitter to communications to our president and ask him to get the poison out of our food…

Would you p.ease join my campaign and ask our President Donald J Trump….PLZ get the poison out of our food

Until Next Time
