Monsanto, Big Food Lobby For Devious National Law As Maine Passes GMO Labeling
by Shorty Dawkins
Maine became the second State to pass a law requiring GMO labeling.
Connecticut was the first. However, both States passed it with the proviso that five contiguous States, with a population total of at least twenty million people, join them. Maine and Connecticut total about 5 million. NH has about 1.3 million, and Vermont, another likely State to pass this type of legislation has less population than NH. Massachusetts would be a key State, as would New York. Will they join in? Time will tell.
Meanwhile Big Food, along with Big Ag, is lobbying the Federal Government to pass watered down legislation and to seek a ban on State laws requiring GMO labeling. Some Counties in Hawaii, California and Washington State have passed resolutions banning the growing of GMO food in their borders.
In Europe there is this, from Activist Post:
What are they afraid of? Quite simply that given the choice, many people will choose non-GMO food over GMO food. They want total control of the food supply. (Why else is the EU thinking of, in effect, banning heirloom seeds?)
Governments on both Continents are in the grip of the Big Ag, Big Food behemoth. Bill Gates recently bought a large stake in Monsanto, so you can bet his friends are pushing the same agenda.
Some will say there is no conspiracy, that this is merely the hand of free market forces. Hogwash! This is big money going after total control of the world’s food supply. It is a vast conspiracy! It is what Benito Mussolini called Corporatism, which was his slight variation of Fascism. We have Corporations colluding with government to restrict all competition. With competition either eliminated, or severely reduced, those still standing, being the big boys, will reap all the benefits, and as a bonus, they will control us all.
He who controls the food supply controls everything.
