(NaturalNews) Editor's note: We regret to inform our readers that this story is based on a Daily Mail article that we have now been informed is from 2003, not 2012. In their own search engine, Daily Mail
mistakenly listed their own story as being published on February 3, 2012. We have a screen capture of this search to prove this, taken from the Daily Mail's website search engine:http://www.naturalnews.com/images/GMO-Site-Screen-2012.jpg
A second source, Investors.com, had also reported Monsanto's withdrawal from the UK. In a story dated February 3, 2012 that was sourced from UPI
(United Press International), Investors.com reported: (http://news.investors.com/Newsfeed/Article/140895211/201202030212/Mon...
)Monsanto Co. said it's leaving Britain due to opposition to genetically modified foods. Officials at Monsanto -- a multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation and leading producer of genetically engineered seed -- said the company is closing its wheat growing operation, based in Cambridge, which employed 125 people, and selling off crop-breeding centers in France, Germany and the Czech Republic, the Daily Mail reported.
Investors.com may have updated their story, so here's a screen capture of their original report, as proof that this was there:http://www.naturalnews.com/images/News-Investors_com-Monsanto-GMO-Bri...
For our own story, we had relied on the Daily Mail's posted date on the story, which turns out to be incorrect. Daily Mail has since corrected this publish date, so it now shows the year 2003. This, in turn, has caused us to publish this correction. We regret the confusion. Even more, we regret that the good news
we originally reported turns out to be old news
rather than today's good news. At times like this, we all need some good news, but it seems our optimism in this case was misplaced...
Monsanto even went to the trouble to contact us and inform us that they have not retreated from the UK
at all, and in fact, their business across Europe is surging. Sadly, Monsanto has not
been defeated in the UK as we had hoped, and the threat of Monsanto's presence in Europe remains ever present. They are quite proud of it, in fact. In a phone call with NaturalNews, they went into great detail about all their "success" across Europe, describing all the GMO
fields they have planted in numerous countries there.
More than ever, it is now crucial to join in the grassroots resistance against Monsanto and its seed domination agenda
, across Europe, North America, India and everywhere around the world.
Here's the news that happened in 2003:A massive victory against Monsanto and genetically engineered seeds has been achieved in the United Kingdom today. Monsanto has announced a total withdrawal from the UK, shuttering its Cambridge-based wheat production operation. UK newspaper Daily Mail was instrumental in promoting opposition against Monsanto through its "Frankenstein Foods" educational campaign (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-199884/GM-giant-quits-Britain...).
And now, here's what we must do in 2012 to stop Monsanto:
We must stop Monsanto here in the USA!
We know that GMOs are death for agriculture, death for bird populations, death for honey bee pollinators, and death for the soils. We know that Monsanto is the most evil corporation on the planet (http://www.naturalnews.com/030967_Monsanto_evil.html
), willing to destroy the future of life on our planet in exchange for a quarterly profit.
We also know that the public is joining the fight against GMOs
. A massive effort is already underway to mandate the labeling of GMOs on foods sold in California (http://www.naturalnews.com/033763_GMOs_California_ballot_initiative.h...
). A similar effort has begun in Washington state. Many other states are considering similar legislation.
The FDA and USDA, meanwhile, have proven they are total sellouts
, corrupted by powerful corporations, worshipping the technology of death, and serving as outright betrayers of the American people. Death merchants like Bill Gates -- the depopulation agenda pusher -- continue to try to pimp GMOs by calling them "high-tech agriculture." They buy media influence with their billions of dollars (http://www.naturalnews.com/034859_Bill_Gates_mainstream_media_influen...
), and they corrupt members of Congress with campaign money. They are literally trying to destroy modern agriculture in North America as a way to control every seed, every patent, and every grain of food that appears on a dinner plate in America... it is an agenda of total domination
And yet... we can stop them
. We the People have the power to end agricultural imperialism
in North America and around the world. We have an opportunity to stop the death merchants, expose the deceptions, mandate honest labeling of our foods and send Monsanto, DuPont and other GMO companies packing.
What's required to accomplish this? Keep reading NaturalNews.com
, where we wage a 24/7 battle against the chemical poisoners and death merchants of our world -- those who push vaccines, chemotherapy, GMOs, food additives, pesticides and psychiatric drugs. We fight to protect life
and protect the future of life on our planet by exposing the poisoners and demanding justice for the People.
Real justice means not having our food poisoned. Not having our crop fields invaded by foreign DNA engineered by Monsanto. Not being forced to inject our children with dangerous vaccines. Not having our raw milk stolen and destroyed by FDA agents. Not having our bodies contaminated with mercury, aluminum and cancer-causing chemicals.
We fight for the restoration of food freedom
, medical freedom, health freedom and economic freedom. We seek to protect the rights, freedoms and powers of the individual, and we stand firm against the tyranny of bad government and corrupt corporations. The future belongs to We the People
-- but only if we have the courage to grasp it and tear it away from the clutches of the evil, twisted corporations who are desperately trying to dominate our world and control everything they can.
Join the fight to outlaw GMOs in North America!
