FBI Calls Destruction of GMO Sugar Beets in Oregon 'Economic Sabotage'

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/06/fbi-calls-destruction-of-gmo-sugar.html

When GM pollen blows into a non-GM farmer's fields and irreversibly contaminates his crop with 'biopollution,' who does the law side with? Historically, Monsanto. Also, it's not called 'economic sabotage' but rather 'copyright infringement,' and the victim not the aggressor is threatened with economic ruin.

When Monsanto's unapproved and therefore illegal GM wheat is found years after open field trials growing freely in an Oregon wheat field, the entire state crop's export fate is held in limbo, jeopardizing the present and future living of thousands of farmers and their dependents, with Monsanto receiving little more than a reprimand, followed by rapid USDA assurance that despite a lack of approval their GM wheat is "safe."

Given the unfair rules of the game, no wonder some folks in Oregon, having been treated much like feudal peasants, are taking things into their own pitchfork-bearing hands.

So, when the FBI investigates the destruction of genetically modified sugar beets from two fields in Southern Oregon's Jackson County this month, the act is immediately labeled "economic sabotage," presumably against the multinational corporation who owned the plants.

1. I call it a "profile in courage"

 

The Corporations have been asking for war. Now they've got it. And they don't like it.

Because they are finally realizing that they won't win, not on moral grounds, not on popularity, not on anything that matters. They are royally screwed by their own rapacity and evil genius. They forgot: one cannot serve the People and Mammon. The two are mutually exclusive.

And Mammon has no purpose if there are no People who care about profiting at the expense of all other people.

14. So you actually think sabotage of science is ok.

It's not just that you want to ignore science, you actually want to destroy it.

2. yes to care and deeply wish to preserve the quality of food

And water is to be found guilty, without a trial, of terrorism. Look at this webpage regarding what the top official over Tennessee water is saying:

http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/06/23/1227221/tennessee-official-water-complaints-could-be-act-of-terrorism?utm_source=rss1.0mainlinkanon&utm_medium=feed

An anonymous reader writes "A Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation deputy director is threatening citizens with being listed as terrorists for giving official complaints. Sherwin Smith, deputy director of TDEC’s Division of Water Resources said: 'But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there's no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.' 'In terms of the comments made by a member of the Water Resources Division at the meeting, we are just receiving the information and looking into this on our end,' spokeswoman Meg Lockhart said. 'The department would like to fully assess what was said in the meeting. I am told that the meeting was far longer than the audio clip provided by SOCM and that Mr. Smith actually clarified his remarks. But again, we are looking into it.'"

And don't forget - now that the patriotic NSA is establishing its ability to patriotically spy on us 24/7, they can go back several years and re-constitute any conversations you have had with friends or neighbors about your environmental terroristic feelings.

4. K&R

Thanks for this OP. Sort of updates what's going on up there. "Economic Terrorism," is what the FBI really means. So this is the "New World Order." Doesn't look like much "order" to me.

5. BS

 

No proof...more lies..FBI just covers for their corporate buddies hoping to score a job with them later...how spineless can they get? They are just protecting them from lawsuits because Monsanto messed up and let the cross-pollination happen. Maybe NSA can blackmail another judge to rule in the 1%'s favor.

6. revolt is overdue...





When multinational corporations like Monsanto have already succeeded in genetically modifying the political system, splicing in their ex-executives and lawyers into positions of great power within the government [see image above], how can folks rely on these Monsanto, Dow and Sygenta-influenced regulatory agencies, and the enforcement arms within their control, to make decisions in the interest of their health or basic civil rights?

Here’s what happened — 40 Tons of GMO Sugar Beets were set ablaze in Eastern Oregon, yesterday. FORTY TONS — the entire acreage of two full fields of crops IN THE GROUND were set ablaze over a THREE NIGHT PERIOD OF TIME. That means ARSON.

Evidence is that 6,500 plants were destroyed BY HAND, ONE PLANT AT A TIME. That, in turn, implies A LOT OF PEOPLE were involved: would you want to stick around once a fire was going and wait to be discovered? No, someone (many someones) probably wanted to move as quickly as possible. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A MOVEMENT, a kind of ORGANIZED REVOLT — and this is exactly the kind of retribution that many have warned was coming; when lawmakers and corporations refuse to honor the Constitution and instead engage in ‘legalized’ criminal acts such as enabled by the ‘Monsanto Protection Act.’

7. I wonder how they got them to burn

The beet tops would be green this time of year and I would think hard to burn.

8. just one report

and difficult to be sure...

many countries have banned Monsanto and GMOs... burning seems to be popular method... if burned I suppose some sort of incendiary is used ??
