Monsanto Shareholder Meeting Infiltrated by Activist

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

In an exciting act of grassroots resistance to Monsanto and their GMOs that are ravaging the planet, activist Adam Eidinger has infiltrated a Monsanto shareholder meeting and posted the video up on Youtube. Eidinger discusses the negative impact of GMO crops, Roundup, and other Monsanto creations on human health and the environment. As a result, a shocked Monsanto spokesman (identified as CEO Hugh Grant by Eidinger) does his best to brush off the concerns and assure the activist that the company — the same company that has been found to be running slave rings on their GMO crop fields — cares very much about the concerns of their shareholders.




One of the major concerns highlighted by activist Adam Eidinger, who identifies himself as an ‘occupy activist’, is the increased usage of pesticides on crops as a result of Monsanto’s failing Bt-infused GMO crops. Bt is a toxin incorporated into genetically modified crops in order to kill different insects, though recently it was exposed that Bt usage has subsequently spawned insect populations which are resistant to the biopesticide. At least 8 populations of insects have developed resistance, with 2 populations resistant to Bt sprays and at least 6 species resistant to Bt crops as a whole.

What is the result? Farmers are being forced to spray substantially more pesticides as a result, leading to further pesticide-laden genetically modified foods being unknowingly consumed by a large number of individuals.

This is also further demonstrated by the EPA, which has also found Monsanto’s GMO corn to be ineffective. It even found that the crops were creating resistant rootworms. The EPA found that the resistant rootworms, which are evolving to resist the insecticide, are currently found Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska.

In a follow-up video, Adam Eidinger asks just how much Monsanto spends to squelch GMO labeling campaigns. Of course you may remember that Monsanto had admitted to influencing the outcome of the Colorado labeling initiative which ended in failure. With a number of phony pro-GMO protests and farmers likely paid off by Monsanto, the company managed to alter the result. The actions bring into question why Monsanto would deny consumers the right to know if their foods contain genetically modified ingredients.

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that sales would decrease substantially, as consumers are catching on to the dangers of GMO foods. Monsanto managed to rake in $11.8 billion in sales during the 2011 fiscal year that ended Aug 31, and they have no intention of slowing down their hazardous production — even if it means destroying your health along with the genetic integrity of the planet.

Excellent find!!! Gives me fantasies about class action lawsuits against the shareholders too.

too bad the sound isn't useful at all... I didn't get a single word. Next time someone will try this with decent sound, the venues' security is going to be too tight to allow this kind of action... what a pity

Same here. The sound needs to be fixed.

What this shows me, further than i already knew, is just how complacent the otherside of the corporate ave is. When not one shareholder, the real drivers of the sucess or failure of monsanto, do not even voice one objection to the Monsanto mans reply, but sit there like the greedy sheeple they are, then it to me shows just how inconceivibly bad things are.

Were not just standing up for our own freedoms from corporate powers, but along with that millions of shareholders of the illegal, excuse me "Unlawful" Monopolistic synthetic personage the powers that be label corporations!!

What chance do we have when the greed of both combine to increase their personal wealth?I've heard only a few that say the corporate privledges have to go meaning, they have to be personally held accountable for all of thier actions at owner level and down the proverbial chain of command. If this along with other measures donot take place before or by this election i see no future for this country that i would care to live here anymore.

I'd like to know why I can't play this video; it's the second one I have found; the other one was the Italian find of fake US bonds.

Did anyone else have trouble playing these; I figure there will be more and more "cencsorship viruses" slipped into videos that the PTB's really don't want us to hear.

Tell President Obama to fire Monsanto's Michael Taylor from his job as Food Czar at the FDA.

Chemical giant Monsanto, wartime operator of the Oak Ridge nuclear facility along with Union Carbide, began pumping out reactor-made radioisotopes for medical ‘study’ in 1946 under the direction of the Atomic Energy Commission and its chief, David Lilienthal http://citizen2009.wordpress.com/monsanto/. The imperative of covering up the radiation cause of polio, and “racing for a vaccine” after 1945, is obvious in retrospect. The military-medical establishment put its top guns on the task. The anomalous propaganda and distortion of polio takes on a meaningful light with the knowledge that Operation Polio was integral to maintaining and advancing nuclear weapons. The Salk vaccine was a massive radiation experiment. See the Atomic Weapons page for the timing of this event http://polioforever.wordpress.com/atomic-weapons/
