If there is to be a poster child for the "Evil Corporation", it would probably be Monsanto. A leader in genetically modified organisms, Monsanto's long term strategy would seem to be controlling the food supply from seed to plate. But now people are waking up to the consequences of having corporate control of the food chain and what we eat and grow. Both farmers and food buyers are speaking out against Monsanto's practices, and demanding an end to GMO's in the food supply, and at the very least the labeling of products containing GMO's. September 17th, 2012 was the international day of action against Monsanto and GMO's. This film shows part of the Atlanta action lead by the Food Supply Rescue Coalition. It runs 37 minutes.

I'm Not Buyin' It, McDonald's Genetically Engineered Menu

Video

See video

On July 17th, 2012, The Food Supply Rescue Coalition visited an Atlanta area McDonald's to try and buy a meal that did not contain Genetically Engineered products. They didn't have much luck, but they did buy a meal to see if, and how long, the elements of the meal would decompose. This is part of the lead up to the September global day of action against Monsanto. Monsanto has patented their Genetically Engineered plants and animal feed found in 90% of American food products, and McDonald's is one of the main conduits for these products to enter the population. But now some people are fighting back by demanding labeling, more education of what they call "Frankenfoods", and eventually banning GMO's altogether. This film runs 7 minutes.
