International Monsanto Tribunal Frequently Asked Questions

International Monsanto Tribunal Frequently Asked Questions | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it
1. Why an international tribunal?

We believe that only through civic action will we be able to achieve compensation for Monsanto’s actions.

World governments and courts have failed to hold Monsanto accountable for the devastating impact its products and practices have had on human health and the environment. And domestic courts have proven ineffective and/or impractical as a pathway to recourse for individuals who have filed lawsuits against Monsanto.

Wake Up and Smell the Poison

Wake Up and Smell the Poison | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it
If you participated in the glyphosate test project launched last year by The Detox Project (formerly Feed The World) and Organic Consumers Association, you probably failed. A staggering 93 percent of Americans tested positive for glyphosate, according to the test results, announced yesterday (May 25, 2016). What makes that figure even more alarming is that many of you who sent in urine samples for testing probably eat more organic than non-organic food. Which suggests that either your organic food has been contaminated and/or you’re being exposed to glyphosate via unknown sources. Worse yet? Children had the highest levels. The testing, carried out by a laboratory at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), was the first-ever comprehensive and validated LC/MS/MS testing project to be carried out across America. According to the results, people who live in the west and mid-west tested higher than those living in other regions of the country. It's way past time for the world to wake up and smell the poison.

Honey Bee Health & Colony Collapse Disorder

Honey Bee Health & Colony Collapse Disorder | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it

Earlier this year the OCA, Friends of the Earth and other groups gathered more than a half-million petition signatures to Frank Blake, CEO, Home Depot and Robert Niblock, CEO, Lowe's, asking them to stop selling plants pretreated with bee-killing pesticides.

A representative for Mr. Blake and Home Depot has reached out, and we are in discussions with Home Depot about how to source plants that are not coated in deadly neonicotinoids (the pesticide most implicated in the die-off of bees). But so far, no word from Mr. Niblock or Lowe’s.

BIO E® World: GMO Sweet Corn - Buyers Beware!

BIO E® World: GMO Sweet Corn - Buyers Beware! | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it

"Monsanto and the EPA swore that the genetically engineered corn would only harm insects. The Bt-toxin produced inside the plant would be completely destroyed in the human digestive system and would not have any impact at all on consumers, they claimed. Alas, they’ve been proven wrong on that account as well, because not only is Bt corn producing resistant “super-pests,” researchers have also found that the Bt-toxin can indeed wreak havoc on human health.

 

Bt-Toxin Now Found in Many People’s Blood!"

Roundup Herbicide: 'The Most Toxic Chemical In the Environment'

"One only has to look at the graphs (Dr. Nancy Swanson) which clearly depict a rise in modern disease that mirrors the use of glyphosate in our agriculture system to see the correlation. In addition to the rising rates of cancer, Parkinson's, diabetes, bowel disorders, intestinal infections, dementia, liver and kidney disease, by the year 2025 it is predicted that the autism rate for children will be 1 out of every 2 children born."
