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

In a breaking development, the FBI confirms that 1,500 GM Sugar Beet plants were destroyed this month in Oregon, in what they are calling an act of "Economic Sabotage."

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 lately, are taking things quite literally into their own 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.

How fitting an FBI description, considering that Monsanto already planted these 'evil seeds' of doubt by suggesting their unapproved GM wheat in Oregon was a result of sabotage, and not negligence (or intentional contamination) on their part.

According to the Spokesman Review, "The agency [FBI] said in a statement Thursday that about 1,000 sugar beet plants were destroyed on June 8, and more than 5,000 plants were destroyed on a different plot three nights later."  

The article went on to explain that the plants were owned by the Swiss-based biotech company Sygenta, and that the FBI spokewoman, Beth Anne Steele, would not comment on the manner in which the crops were destroyed "...because we don't want to encourage copycats."  However, an article published on OregonLive.com demystified the FBI's account, quoting Paul Minehart, head of corporate communications in North America for Syngenta: "It doesn't look like a vehicle was used. It looks like people entered the field and destroyed the plants by hand."

Monsanto Government Collusion

When multinational corporations like Monsanto have already succeeded in genetically modifying the political system, splicing in their ex-executives and ex-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?

Some resort to pulling up, burning and otherwise destroying the plants themselves. Are they terrorists or freedom fighters? And if you answer affirmatively to the latter definition, will you yourself be defined as sympathizers to these "economic saboteurs," or terrorists?

Monsanto and others



Frankly, I am confused. Here we have a company, rotten to the core, evil in its actions, entirely corrupted and acting against the law, gets the Federal approval to do whatever it wants. Looking at the list of names, a totally clear picture emerges, voted officials are involved in a solid case of corruption. There's just no denying it. I mean we all see that, we all understand that. Actually, this company is even more powerful than the government itself, the FBI personnel, or other federal employees, are forced to make favorable statements on behalf of Monsanto because they work for the government. They would be fired otherwise. So what they say in public, has little or no meaning, because we don't really know if what they are saying actually comes out from their heart of hearts. So, it seems like the law, will of the people, general opinion, etc., means nothing. A company is given full rights to just do anything they want, and how? By paying for it, throwing so much money into the game that nobody, not even elected officials do not have fortitude to side step this process, and I guess, just take the money and run, so to speak. And I am thinking; what's next? 

Thanks



Thanks for shedding light on these issues promptly!

GMO sugar beet destruction is an act against tyranny



First, Monsanto and other corporations like it are truly evil. They put money, profits, the bottom line above humanity.    

Second, the rich have always ruled. Until enough peasants (a.k.a. freedom fighters, the people) have had enough and change the existing rule, it will continue to the detriment of the people. However, we must remember, that once the complete change of the government happens--if it ever does--the rich will slowly but surely begin to rule again. The people must be ever vigilant or become enslaved. Also remember everything we say and write on our phones, computers, and other electronic devices is being monitored by the minions of those in power.
