In an exciting act of grassroots resistance to Monsanto and their
GMOs that are ravaging the planet, activist Adam Eidinger has
Monsanto shareholder meeting and posted the video up
on YouTube (see it at

Roundup, and other Monsanto creations on human health and the
As a result, a shocked Monsanto spokesman (identified
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
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 bio-pesticide.
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
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
