Protest FDA Commissioner Michael Taylor at the Food Safety Summit

There is nothing safe about toxic pesticides & unlabeled genetically engineered foods. On April 19, 2012 the Occupy Monsanto Genetic Crimes Unit will protest outside of the Food Safety Summit at the Washington Convention Center. Food safety activists will meet at 11:00am at the Mount Vernon Square / 7th Street / Convention Center Metro station (Yellow & Green Line at the corner of M Street & 7th Street, NW) and will call on FDA Commissioner Michael Taylor to resign.

At 11:30am, former Monsanto executive, “Food Safety Czar” Michael Taylor will be answering questions at the Food Safety Summit “Town Hall” forum. The GCU is calling for Taylor’s immediate resignation because a former Monsanto lobbyist, who profits from the increased use of pesticides & genetically engineered foods, should not be determining food safety & labeling standards in America.

The Town Hall, as the forum is being called, is NOT open to the general public. Food Safety Summit attendees have paid at least $350 to attend. Occupy Monsanto’s 99%ers will take to the sidewalks dressed in Genetic Crimes Unit bio-hazmat uniforms to highlight the grave implications of chemical and genetic contamination in America’s food supply.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t speak about these issues. Many thanks!!

  • you are ill-informed don’t get your facts from the internet, Today’s Monsanto is a dneferfit company no employees from old Monsanto no shareholders the same. No products the same. Runsfeld was head of a company that the old Monsanto took over. Yes Monsanto makes RoundUp and there is no evidence of harm compared to other herbicides and yes its products have saved the use of millions of gallons of insecticides and increased yields mostly for small farmers. The ag company never made aspartame that is still approved for use. The chem company called Monsanto is now called Solutia. The pharmaceutical company now called Pfizer
