March Against Monsanto

No Fracking

The new sign at Bealtaine Cottage, alongside a more important one…”No Fracking!”

Time to advertise what it is we stand for!

The power of advertising is immense.

Free advertising at Bealtaine CottageCorporations and governments allocate massive amounts of money each year to get their messages of suppression and control across to the public.

However, we have the access to advertising ourselves, if we decide to use our windows, cars, front doors, entrances to propagate our messages…what a load of free advertising space!

Bee on Linaria flower at Bealtaine CottageOn Saturday 25th May, there is a worldwide March Against Monsanto, taking place in all major cities.

If Monsanto is allowed to pimp it’s wares, as it does so successfully to central governments, then pictures such as this, the bee on Lunaria in the permaculture gardens of Bealtaine Cottage, will be rare indeed!

I will be marching against Monsanto in Sligo on Saturday 25th May.

The march begins with a rally at the corner of O’Connell and Grattan Streets at 1pm.

Bealtaine Cottage is also on YouTube…with over 110 videos about Permaculture, planting, growing and living.

Over 550 blogs from Bealtaine Cottage in the archives here.

  1. I wonder if we will yet again get the same problem of a blackout on media coverage. I’ve been on two marches in London which got a very small mention in the Guardian. I wrote to the BBC in disgust and was told that there were insufficient people on the march for them to report it. I have always supported the BBC as a corporation that would report the news, I now think differently.

  2. Really glad you posted the bit about the May demonstration. NYState is embroiled in this controversy and have to fight every inch of the way to keep the gas companies out of our State.

    When it comes to Monsanto, I don’t know whether you caught the results of this case about the farmer who tried to use soy beans from a granary vs buying from Monsanto. He was subsequently taken to court by same. Here is the link to results. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/05/indiana-farmer-loses-battle-against-monsanto/
    I suspect with the state of the economy and the state of American farms, there are going to be more farmers rebelling against Monsanto!

    Your segway into the garden was a wonderful, peaceful leap… bj

    • I believe the farmer in question is faced with a bill of over $84,000!
      This is an utter disgrace and should alert the American people as to how their government is corrupted by corporations, for, after all, seed is bestowed upon us by the Divine and no court of law should give a patent on seed!
      This flies in the face of the Creator!
      For myself, I am prepared to go to prison rather than accept any law that does not sit with my conscience or belief.
      Monsanto are little more than pimps…in the same way a pimp makes money from selling a human being, Monsanto pimps seed, created for all!
      As you can probably tell…I am exceedingly cross!

  3. I will be at the Capital in Madison Wi. My sign is in the making. You are a joy to walk with. I am the organizer of a womyn’s spiritual retreat this weekend. Womyn come from around the US. I will make a sign to post on my chair so those that will can take the info back home. I am also performing in a talent show there. I believe the Bees must speak. You are a inspiration. Thank you
