Now, on to today's topic...GMOs

At this point we are assuming that most people have heard of Genetically Modified (GMOs) Foods, but do people know who is behind GMOs? Today we are going to look at who is behind GMOs, what MAM is and what we can do, in Colorado Springs to make a difference! 

So Who is behind GMOs?

                   

Yep...MONSANTO. The company whose name is synonymous with Big Ag. Monsanto is known for suing farmers who regrow licensed seeds and filling the world with Roundup-resistant super­weeds. It is also the producer of genetically modified commodity crops like corn and soybeans with DNA edited in from elsewhere, designed to have qualities nature didn’t quite think of. Monsanto spends MILLIONS each year lobbying the government to support their seeds, science and crops. It is really a poisonous chemical company posing as an AgriBusiness! 

What is MAM?

MAM stands for the March Against Monsanto.  The March Against Monsanto is a GLOBAL call to action aimed at informing the public, calling into question long-term health risks of genetically modified foods (GMOs) and demanding the GMO products be labels so that consumers can make informed decisions! 

Last year MAM protests were held in 52 countries and 436 cites, and this year we hope for more!  This year on May 24, 2014 the second round of MAM protests will be held world wide. There are 13 cities in the state of Colorado who are participating in the MAM protests, and Colorado Springs is one of them!! 

Over 60 countries around the world have significant restrictions or bans on GMO crops, we want to know why the US is not one of them?! 

How can you get involved?
