March Against Monsanto

Tami Canal is the founder of March Against Monsanto, an organization that has played an instrumental role in educating the world on GMOs, the carcinogenic herbicides used on a majority of our food supply, and Monsanto’s hijack of the U.S. government.

Tami works to raise awareness on the health issues we are facing as a result of the increasingly toxic food supply and the serious, growing threats chemical agriculture poses. She is committed to fighting against those who perpetrate and profit off of our sickness and disease, including the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

She has worked tirelessly to organize five global marches with millions of people all over the world converging in solidarity against Monsanto and chemical companies impacting our world with no regard for human life. Tami also works with numerous groups raising awareness on various issues like vaccine transparency, climate change, civil rights, and government corruption.

The use and effect of agent orange on our military while serving in Vietnam is still with us today as veterans from this era succumb to numerous deadly diseases including diabetes and cancer.  Dr. Trewyn has been in the forefront of the battle to expose the long range effects of the use of agent orange and to answer questions many people don’t want asked.

What are the questions?

The correct first question that should have been asked (but never was): Are Vietnam veterans suffering from adverse health conditions that individuals who didn’t serve in Vietnam are not? If they are, what caused the health problems is much less important than knowing the problems are service-connected.

The 25-year, $140+ million Agent Orange Ranch Hand study started out to evaluate whether the herbicides sprayed in Vietnam caused adverse health outcomes for those involved in the spraying, but it devolved into analyzing whether dioxin, a minor contaminant in some herbicides sprayed in Vietnam, caused adverse health outcomes.

Mokie Pratt Porter  Bio

Mokie Pratt Porter, the Director of Communications for Vietnam Veterans of America, has been with VVA since 1985. From 1992-2007, she held the position of editor of The VVA Veteran, assigning hundreds of articles on the myriad issues facing America’s veterans.

She has attended several sessions of the World Veterans Federation; has taken 14 trips to Vietnam in her capacity as the staff coordinator for the Veterans Initiative Task Force, VVA’s veteran-to-veteran effort to assist the Vietnamese with their MIA accounting effort, with the hope of engendering reciprocal cooperation in the accounting of missing Americans; and has made three trips to Ukraine to meet with Vietnam veterans of the former Soviet Union who have been forthcoming with records of downed American aircraft.

Currently she is initiating the “Faces of Agent Orange,” an effort to educate the American public by putting a human face on the generational impact of Agent Orange/ Dioxin and other battlefield exposures.

Ms. Porter is the co-editor of Inside the Pentagon Papers, an oral history of those who participated in the leaking of these secret documents. She is the recipient of VVA’s highest award, the Commendation Medal, as well as the Chapel of Four Chaplains Legion of Honor Award; AVVA President’s Award, and Veterans Against Drugs Commit to Life Award.

Duty to Warn

Four specially-equipped US Air Force cargo planes spraying a Vietnamese triple canopy forest with dioxin-contaminated Agent Orange during what the Vietnamese called the “American War” (those aren’t benign “contrails”, they’re toxic “chemtrails”)

50 years ago this next month (December 1965), with the urging of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the rubber stamp approval of President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, the United States Air Force started secretly spraying the forests of Laos with a deadly herbicide that was known as Agent Orange.

Operation Ranch Hand, whose motto was “Only We Can Prevent Forests” (a shameful takeoff of Smokey the Bear’s admonition), was a desperate, costly and ultimately futile effort to make it a little harder for the National Liberation Front soldiers from North Vietnam to join and supply their comrades-in-arms in the south. Both the guerilla fighters in the south and the NLF army had been fighting to liberate Vietnam from the exploitive colonial domination from foreign nations such as imperial France (that began colonizing Vietnam in 1874), then Japan (during WWII), then the United States (since France’s expulsion after their huge military defeat at Dien Bien Phu in 1954) and then against its own nation’s US-backed fascist/military regime in South Vietnam that was headed by the brutal and corrupt President Diem.

(Incidentally, the nepotism in the US-backed, Roman Catholic Diem’s iron-fisted rule was almost laughable, with one brother being the Catholic Archbishop of Vietnam, a second brother being in charge of the Hue district, and a third brother being the co-founder of the only legal political party in South Vietnam [as well as Diem’s principal adviser]. It needs to be pointed out that true democracies do not criminalize political parties.)

The aim of the National Liberation Front was to unite the north and the south portions of the country and free it from the influence and occupation of foreign invaders. The leader of the liberation movement since its beginning was Ho Chi Minh, who had made sincere appeals to both President Woodrow Wilson (after WWI had weakened France’s colonial system) and President Harry Truman (after the Japanese had taken over Vietnam during WWII and then surrendered to the US in 1945).

Each appeal asked for America’s help to liberate Vietnam from their French colonial oppressors, and each one fell on deaf ears, even though Ho Chi Minh had frequently incorporated the wording and spirit of America’s Declaration of Independence in his continuous efforts to achieve justice for his suffering people.

Center for Food Safety backs up concerns about 2,4-D, an “approved” herbicide BLM uses on public lands

Leave a comment

by Debbie Coffey, V.P. & Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs, Wild Horse Freedom Federation Copyright 2014 All Rights Reserved.

I made a public comment and posted an open letter to the BLM pointing out some possible risks of the use of the herbicide 2,4-D in the BLM’s Environmental Assessment for the “Desatoya Mountains Habitat Resiliency, Health, and Restoration Project” in Nevada (2012).  Recently, the Center for Food Safety has also voiced concerns about the possible risks of 2,4-D.

The Center for Food Safety recently wrote this:

Over a hundred million additional pounds of toxic pesticides associated with cancers and birth defects are coming to a field near you. UNLESS YOU STOP IT! More

Take Action Against Dow Chemical and Monsanto ‘Agent Orange’ Crops

YOU can help to hold the USDA and Dow Chemical accountable simply by posting your comments on the official public record of Dow Chemical’s petition with the USDA to approve their 2,4-D herbicide resistant GMO crops (remember that 2,4-D herbicide is half of the recipe for Agent Orange).

The USDA is required to respond to all UNIQUE comments publicly. Therefore, it is essential that you write your own message in addition to using any of the issues listed below. Comments close on April 27th, so make sure to get them in today. It’s simple to do, and you can view the list of issues and source links below. Just go to the USDA website to leave your comments and take action!

http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=APHIS-2010-0103-0001

Here is a list of issues concerning the new dangerous 2,4-D herbicide resistant crops and source links that we encourage you to use, along with your own message in your comments to the USDA:

• I am demanding a full Environmental Impact Statement on these crops because they can affect human health.

• What are the cumulative effects for these crops and the increase in 2,4-D herbicide usage?

• EPA documents show that 2,4-D herbicide is the seventh largest source of dioxin in the US.

http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/REDs/24d_red.pdf

• EPA documents reveal that 2,4-D agricultural runoff has polluted groundwater across the US. Dioxin has a half-life of more than 100 years when leached into soil and embedded in water systems. Additionally, when contaminated fish are used as a food source, humans absorb dioxin.

http://www.epa.gov/teach/chem_summ/24D_summary.pdf

http://www.aspeninstitute.org/policy-work/agent-orange/history

• The commercialization of GMO 2,4-D herbicide resistant crops will dramatically increase the usage of 2,4-D herbicide that is linked to dioxin to be used on food crops. More

Recently I read an interview with an LBJ devotee who’d left Berkeley with a PhD in political science in 1964.  Then he heard Dean Rusk make the case (in 1965) for “deterrence” (aka The Domino Theory) and  “. . .with just a few of Rusk’s well-chosen sentences . . .realized with a slap to the forehead that I’d missed a whole issue in foreign policy.”
