Cape Town Sends message to Monsato

“Hell No GMO. GMO, we have the right to know!”

These were the words chanted by around 600 marchers who took to the streets of Cape Town today. The objective? Send a clear message to Monsato. A message to let them know that the people have had enough of the sugar coated stories being fed to them. The global march saw 330 cities in 41 countries – over 200 000 people – take to the streets. Enough is enough!

What is the fuss all about? This was the question being asked by onlookers. I personally spoke to 12 people who had never heard of Monsato or GMO’s. Ignorance? No, but I will get to that later. Let’s cover the basics first.

Who is Monsato?
Monsato is a giant US corporation who make GMO’s as well as highly toxic chemicals including pesticides, plastics and artificial food additives. Bottom line: They don’t really care about what they feed how, how it affects you or who they have to destroy to get a monopoly of the market. All that matters to them is who they can corrupt on the route to stuffing their pockets. They are the creators of a long list of harmful products, but I will list just a view:

    Aspartame – Think you are doing OK by substituting your sugar for sweetener? Think again. If your sweetener contains Aspartame you are poisoning your body (especially your brain) with every sip! Thank Monsato!
    DDT – Remember Agent Orange which deformed over 500 000 babies? Thank Monsato!
    rBGH (Bovine Growth Hormone) – a completely synthetic hormone injected into lactating cows to drastically increase milk production. Thank Monsato!
    MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) – basically “preservatives”. Think Parmesan cheese, tinned products, dried soup and sauce mixes, KFC, MacDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut. Positively linked to obesity, diabetes, autism and many more diseases. Thank Monsato!
    GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) – plants and animals which have been grown in laboratories. Yip, apparently Mother Nature is no longer capable of producing edible, nutritious food sources, so we have to grow them in labs. If this does not bother you, then the direct link between GMO’s and at least 29 diseases such as hormonal defects, sterility, birth defects, DNA damage and a host of deadly cancers also should be of no concern. Wow, thank Monsato!

So you think GMO’s don’t affect you? Check your kitchen cupboard quickly. If you are eating anything with the following ingredients, you and your kids are most probably eating GMO’s:
Corn, maize, soy, alfalfa, cotton, sugar beets, gem squash, peas, potatoes, papaya, zuchinni and canola.

Let’s make it simpler. Here are some of the everyday products which contains GMO’s:
Purity Baby Foods, Kellogs Cornflakes, Amazon Cornflakes, Pronutro, Cerelac Honey Baby Cereal, Future Life, Pringles, Snacker Bars, Jungle Oats Health Bars, Impala Maize Meal, Snowflake Self-Raising Flour, bread. The list is endless.

If you are still not sure whether you want to expose your kids to this, look at the image below of a lab rat which lived of GMO’s (one of many)!

Why did we march?
People need to be educated about GMO’s and their harmful effects. It is shocking how many people are unaware of the fact that they are slowly but surely killing themselves and their children.

People have the right to know and choose what to eat. GMO Labeling must be enforced. Once you know of the dangers and can clearly see the food products marked as such, you can make a choice.

Local farmers and organic producers have the right to make a living by working with Mother Nature. They should not have to be forced into “slavery” by Monsato.

We have the right and the responsibility to protect our food supply. We can grow food, but once we start to mess with the natural order of things, we are in for a big surprise. It might not happen now, but it will happen!

Why don’t we know about this?
I guess to answer that you would need to look to government. One of the pictures loaded below give the perfect description: Control the food and you control the people. Scientists who work in the laboratories where these “foods” are created and tested are forced to sign Secrecy documents. Monsato does not want us to know, because it would bring them to their knees. It would put the brakes on their killing machine, which brings in millions and millions every year. Everyone needs to eat right, they just don’t feel that we have the right to know what we are eating. Have you ever thought to yourself how strange it is that you hear of someone with cancer every other day? Have you ever stopped to think why?

People are not ignorant, they are misinformed. I find it surprising that I saw no television crew or reporter at the march. Coincidence? NO! Media is controlled by government. Government is controlled by money. Who has a lot of money? Monsato! Did you know that SA is one of the only countries in the world to still allow it’s staple food to be a GMO? Ridiculous!

If each one of the 600 people who attended the Cape Town March today, can reach out to 50 people to let them know, and those 50 in turn do the same, we can make a difference!

Government is not going to make it happen. If we refuse to support Monsato by not buying GMO foods, they will feel the pinch sooner or later. Turn the tide, demand to know what you are fed, demand the right to choose what you want to eat:

Hell no GMO! GMO, we have the right to know!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!

    1. And the shocking thing is that we don’t realize how much of our foods are genetically modified. I checked the breads at Spar yesterday and could not find 1 which did not contain GM ingredients!

  1. I always thought a seedless watermelon was a bad idea. Eventually the only people who can grow food (because they’re seedless) is the company supplying you with the food.

    1. True. I think another problem which adds to this is the fact that we have become a society which depends on convenience in order to make our lives easier. We require a complete turn around in the way we think about food.

Say something, you know you want to!
