(NaturalNews) It appears as though some Americans may finally be waking up to the grim reality that calling their politicians and signing petitions is simply not enough to stem the tide of evil that has overtaken this once free country. For perhaps the first time since genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced back in the 1990s, food freedom activists have literally taken to the fields to destroy them, making a bold public statement that We The People have had enough of being forcibly poisoned by these genetic abominations.

According to new reports, a total of 6,000 GM sugar beets planted in fields in southern Oregon were found uprooted in recent days. On June 8, roughly 1,000 GM sugar beets were found destroyed in fields leased and managed by the private, Switzerland-based biotechnology company Syngenta, while another 5,000 plants on a different plot, also owned by Syngenta, were found destroyed on June 11, just three days later.

Since the crops were GM, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) immediately got involved with the case, declaring this brave act of ecological conservation to be "economic sabotage." And those involved with the investigation have been timid about releasing any details, expressing fears that "copycats" might try to take similar action at other GM fields in Oregon and elsewhere -- we simply cannot add any further risks to the multi-billion dollar "Frankenfood" supply now can we?

Meanwhile, biotech giant Monsanto's blatant negligence with a long-abandoned GM wheat crop recently led to real economic sabotage in the form of widespread contamination of the general wheat supply. A conventional wheat field in eastern Oregon, in case you missed it, was recently found to have been contaminated by illegal GM wheat traits, a discovery that very quickly disrupted the entire export market for wheat in the U.S. and put the livelihoods of thousands of American farmers at risk.

But the FBI is nowhere to be found in pursuing and prosecuting the culprit in this debacle. No, Monsanto and others in the biotech industry that are responsible for polluting the entire earth with their transgenic atrocities are shielded from all liability for their repeated acts of economic sabotage, while freedom fighters who intervene on behalf of humanity are relegated to the ranks of terrorists.

"When GM pollen blows into a non-GM farmer's fields and irreversibly contaminates his crop with 'biopollution,' who does the law side with?" asks Sayer Ji in a recent piece for GreenMedInfo.com.

"When Monsanto's unapproved and therefore illegal GM wheat is found years after open field trials growing freely in an Oregon wheat field, the entire state crop's export fate is held in limbo, jeopardizing the present and future living of thousands of farmers and their dependents, with Monsanto receiving little more than a reprimand, followed by rapid USDA assurance that despite a lack of approval their GM wheat is 'safe.'"

Syngenta's GM sugar beets are not even legal in Switzerland

One major irony in the Syngenta case is that the company's GM sugar beets are not even legal in its own home country of Switzerland. Americans are expected to consume the company's poisonous "Frankenbeets," which received government approval apart from any adequate environment and human safety data, but the people of Switzerland are protected from this agricultural assault because of strict GMO regulation.

"Syngenta is committing acts that are criminal in its own country, yet our government invites them," wrote one commenter on an OregonLive.com article discussing the destruction of the beets. "I thank you rebels! I applaud you for your action and your bravery."
