Poland Joins Ranks of Grassroots Anti-Monsanto Activism

By Michael Edwards and Anthony Gucciardi

The anti-GMO, anti-Monsanto movement has been making major waves in recent months.

The inexorable growth of this revolution was recently highlighted by the popularity of Anthony Gucciardi’s article detailing actions taken by Hungary to destroy 1000 acres of maize and issue a 10-year ban on GM foods.  That article has gone mega-viral with over 95,000 shares, and is one of the best indications to date that we the people can take on even the largest corporations if we just take action and make our voices heard.

Monsanto is indeed the worst company of 2011, and people the world over are joining the opposition.  Poland is contributing to the coordinated effort against GMO to protect their health freedom and preserve their local farming economy.  “The Festival of Nature and Culture”  begins today and runs through December 11th as a celebration of Poland’s effort to stop GMO and save traditional seeds.  It is another angle on generating support for a Poland-wide demand to kill off continued government attempts to sneak through an Act that would permit GM seeds to be commercially grown there.

What is new about this initiative is that many artists are giving their names and talents to this festival.  Jazz musicians, painters, actors, designers, rock bands and more are among those pledging their support.  The festival comprises more than 80 events to take place all over Poland this coming weekend.

Activists in Poland are joining others around the world in a mission to keep their torch burning through a celebration of unmodified nature and culture.  The ICPPC is coordinating this event from its farmhouse base in South Malopolska and J&J will also be engaged in other awareness-raising events in the nation’s capital of Krakow over the weekend.

Public attitudes are changing exponentially, as  people are waking up to the dangers of a corrupted food chain.  Moreover, the origin of this corruption is being identified as a corporate-government structure that is hell-bent on eradicating true food safety and the preservation of our right to grow and consume natural products.  This corporate-government atrocity has become symbolized by Monsanto, as they aim to turn food and farming into nothing more than a sterile money-making machine.

The Festival of Nature and Culture offers another vision of the future – and its becoming clear that it is a vision shared by an increasing number of individuals from a wide cross-section of not only Polish society, but the larger human tribe as well.

For more information about this wonderful initiative, please visit their website HERE (in Polish).  There are many free translation programs on the web that you can use to view how they are structuring this event.  Please spread these ideas far and wide and adopt these tools to start a movement in your own community.

  1. By eating GMO foods, you are consenting to eating pesticides in your food, and feeding it to your children. If people don’t wake up and fight the corporate take over of food, we will be all dead. Teenagers, young adults must know that corporations are out to kill you, in your daily food. Unity and fighting this to the end will be the only solution. Join the organic community that are fighting this madness, before it is too late. Demand the removal of GMO, drugs and filth in your food, it is the basic necessity for life.

  2. The movement in Mexico will hopefully be as strong soon! Here is what I am doing to help stop one of the largest corn monopolies in the world. That between the US and Mexico and Monsanto and all of their subcontractors. It needs your support to happen. Check it out, it’s been effective thus far.

  3. Rock On ! I admire the funky baby copter in the air above the message…very snazzy!
    This is one of the most important issues needing our attention now….Thanks for getting the word out!
