GMO Activism Bringing Down Monsanto’s Stock

The recent wave of activism against Genetically Modified Organic products and, particularly, its most popular face – Monsanto Corporation – is finally taking its toll where it hurts the most to these unscrupulous capitalists, their wallets.

Monsanto executives and insiders are dumping Monsanto stock in record volumes, sending the stock price spiraling downward. CEO Hugh Grant just sold off 40,000 shares at $97.74, and both Janet Holloway and Gerald Steiner — both high-level Monsanto executives — recently ditched more than 10,000 shares each. Tom Hartley also bailed on another 6,000 shares at $100.15.

Although this does not make the wrongs right, it does show that no matter how big a corporation is, it is still liable to consumer opinion and activism and therefore should always strive for Corporate Social Responsibility to guarantee sustainability. Monsanto’s products have several negative side-effects like genetic pollution, growth of tumors due to consumption and were the main cause for a massive number of bee death’s, preventing the important pollination process required for the constant growth of crops.

Now we can only hope that the responsible parties will be brought to justice, although money seems to impeach the power of courts, for some reason.

On the meanwhile, take a word of advice from Mike Adams at Natural News be a responsible investor.

The mutual funds still investing in Monsanto include:

• Fidelity Select
• American Century
• Rydex Basic Materials
• Hartford Growth
• ICON Materials
• Vanguard Materials

If you own any of these mutual funds, sell them now and invest somewhere else. Become an “activist investor” and put your money in companies that create a better world, not companies that destroy their world for their own selfish greed.”

As a final word, it is a shame and an outrage for democracy and decency anywhere in this planet that the US Government would protect an entity as evil as Monsanto (The Monsanto Protection Act, H.R. 933). It only shows how every government, politic and legislation is for sale and how the common person is bludgeoned under the greed for profit of the ones that sit at the top.

“STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING, sit down and watch this film! No REALLY, I mean it. This is one of the most IMPORTANT films I’ve seen… Thrive brings together the New Energy and Occupy movements in a coherent, well constructed synergy that EVERYONE should see NOW!” – Mark Heley, Blogger.

 

Kymatica

Kymatica, a word used to define the interaction between matter and vibration, is a 84 minute documentary which takes us in a in-depth analysis of the human psyche how it is related with the world as we are part of a global consciousness. It also analyses the restraining effect that the propaganda of fear from the media bestows upon the human race and its evolutionary path. This propaganda and the means by which is employed (which, as you can witness on the news, is being used often noways) is a topic well expressed in this quote from Hermann Goring:

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

After a passionate closing speech, it reminds us that humankind is at a point of evolution and it’s important to free ourselves from false leaders and false beliefs and acknowledge the values that truly benefit us as individuals and society such as trust, compassion and cooperation.

A More Efficient and Humane Economic System

Peter Joseph interview by The Young Turks. This enlightening back and forth discussion sheds some lights on human development and sustainability topics such as the unproductive nature of the financial system, the unfairness of the free market, the fallacies of capitalism and democracy, the deep inter-mesh of interests between government, business and war, the transition to a resource-based economic system and a short description of this new system. A sure stride into changing the world and human coexistence for better.
