James Harrison is the kindest person in the world, also known as the "Man with the golden arm", a blood plasma donor from Australia. His over 1000 donations throughout his lifetime have saved over two million unborn babies from Rhesus disease.
Today activists around the world will unite to march against Monsanto: because they are altering the nature of our food supply without a concern about long term effects on human health, because they are creating a monopoly on the supply of seeds for farmers and, because of increasing evidences of long term environmental damages.
Research studies have shown that Monsanto's genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility, birth defects, and other dis-eases. In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives. World renowned scientists raising the alarm on GMO food, such as Arpad Pusztai, have been silenced. There is an obvious conflict of interests which explains the lack of public research on the long-term effects of GMO products. Recently, the U.S. Congress quietly passed the "Monsanto Protection Act" which, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto's genetically-modified seeds.
For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small independent farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world's food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds. Farmers trying to save their own seeds have been sued by Monsanto when their fields have been contaminated by Monsanto's patented seeds. Independent farmers cannot survive financially in the face of court battles against a multinational corporation.
Monsanto's GMO seeds are harmful to the environment. Scientists have indicated they have contributed to colony collapse among the bee population. The promotion of the use of glyphosate, an herbicide used in conjunction with roundup ready crops, has resulted in the apparition of superweeds and the widespread presence of glyphosate in the environment, with little being known about the long term effects of exposure on human health and on ecosystems.
There are many solutions: voting with your dollar by buying organic, labeling of GMO foods, repealing relevant provisions of the US's "Monsanto Protection Act". But today we are asking you to take a first step and help us to inform the public about Monsanto's secrets. Join us in the march to the streets to show the world and Monsanto that we are aware and want them to be held accountable. We will not stand for cronyism. We will not stand for poison.
We Are Legion.
We Do Not Forgive.
We Do Not Forget.

“We are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.” -Terence McKenna
“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.” -Plato (427–347 BC)
