Monsanto is a company in business, if you want to get rid of the badness, spread the word not to buy products that are made by this company. Chances are that you use at least two of t heir products. From crops to floor covering and lots of other things. Monsanto is well aware of the damage they are doing, how ever the shareholders of the company demand they make money. Shareholders are common folks that invest money in the stock market Seek out the folks that do this and implore them not...

Monsanto is a company in business, if you want to get rid of the badness, spread the word not to buy products that are made by this company. Chances are that you use at least two of t heir products. From crops to floor covering and lots of other things. Monsanto is well aware of the damage they are doing, how ever the shareholders of the company demand they make money. Shareholders are common folks that invest money in the stock market Seek out the folks that do this and implore them not to buy stock in the companies that create harmful products. No amount of petitions will make them change their policy as long as they are making money. Hit them where it hurts, in the purse. No if we can petition the governments to outlaw the products we might have a chance at stopping the production of these products. But there is also a hazard in that too. Politics being what they are, if you stop one company by government means then the politicians will retaliate on other companies, so the best attack is to stop their flow of money. Don't buy products that are made by these companies. Monsanto has ruined the Dominican Republic, almost beyond repair.

Evil flourishes when good people do nothing!

In a final analysis when eco systems collapse we will see that we needed bees and insects more than they needed us!

Please Please everyone read this.

Many of us fought to have a ban in the Uk and Europe. We supposedly won. But the ban is a total sham.

The ‘ban’ doesn’t come into force until December. By then most if not all farmers will have purchased their chemical coated seeds for next year.

They are only banning 3 of the neonicotinoids. There are others, which will not be banned.

They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there...

They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there will continue to be residues on the land. And it is not known how long residues last for.

There is no ban on all the other insecticides, which may also be having a detrimental effect on all bees and other pollinating insects.

New studies show that not only are bees are being affected, but hoverflies and lacewings too. So the notion by many folk that there are other insects, which can go on pollinating, is false.

We have had the most amazing apple blossom this year, yet very few bees working it – one or two here and there. The same with comfrey, which would normally be humming with bumble bees. We in the Uk have had a very long winter, and still a cool spring. Indeed, the coldest spring in 50 years. This has undoubtedly has had a serious effect on bee populations of all kinds. Undoubtedly too, they have been weakened by chemicals.

Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So...

Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So what can we expect – dead bees, dead hoverflies, dead lacewings….. all for the sake of money and power.

The same people are pushing to ban all seeds that are not controlled by Monsanto and the other chemical industries, so that we have to use their genetically modified seeds, which will only grow by using their chemicals.

The same people who are trying to ban the use of homeopathy, herbs and other forms of natural healing, so that we are all hooked on to their drugs.

Part three: Please, everyone wake up to what is happening. These multinational companies are after world domination and politicians are falling over backwards to oblige.

thank you all for your responses, i have only found them as only John's was fed back to me. I am a member of the Wedmore Green Group here in England, and we lean on our 'poly-tishons' (oh, a species of parrot!!!!!!!!). perhaps you have local pressure groups you can work with, or join to help the cause. Or even start one yourselves. Just a thought. You can look up our website and get ideas. i wish you all well. melvyn ps i will be happy to hear from you.

It would be good to know the cut off date for this petion - a lot of petitions keep circulating and getting signed long past their sell-by date. Petition fatigue can set in if one discovers ones self wasting time with an old poetition...so this information [a date] needs to be in the first 3 paragraphs of page 1.
