Why Are We Being Fed By A Poison Expert?

Published June 5 by The Undercurrent.

Is the ‘old’ Monsanto, the one responsible for producing Agent Orange, PCB’s and DDT and a terrible record at covering up and denying the tragedies that have resulted from their use, the same as the ‘new’ Monsanto, the one at the forefront of research in plant gene technology? We argue their scientific and ethical track record is entirely relevant to what they do today.
And what they do today is control a huge portion of the crop seeds that feed the world. We’ve had a great deal of feedback, with some viewers suggesting that some of the negative comments may be attributed to ‘astroturfing’. Regardless, we welcome spirited, cordial discussion. Monsanto have asked for a right of reply, which we will post when we receive.

The Monsanto Years – On Tour With Neil Young

Published on Jan 27, 2016 by Hollywood Food Guild

A behind the scenes look of Neil Young + The Promise of the Real’s “The Monsanto Years” Tour.

For years, Neil Young has used his voice through his music for social justice issues, working specifically as a strong ally for farmers. This past year, Young released his newest album titled The Monsanto Years, calling out Monsanto as one of the the most harmful corporations in human history (along with Syngenta, Dow, Dupont and Bayer). Together these corporations control seed production and have created patents on their genetically engineered (GE) seed, taking away the farmers’ right to save their own seed. These companies’ GE crops have increased the use of pesticides by hundreds of millions of pounds, and next generation GE crops will further increase pesticide usage of even stronger, more toxic herbicides.

Center for Food Safety has led the fight for food, farms and the environment since 1997. Hollywood Food Voices is a production of Center for Food Safety, created to join with artists using their influence to shine light on environmental and food and farming issues.
