Please make known to people that Monsanto was FOR
labeling before they were against it!
Some quotes for you:
“One can make a reasonable argument that consumers and citizens have a right to know anything they wish to know. It is they who are choosing these products and it is they who are choosing and judging their governments. So it is almost impossible to make a case that information should be withheld from consumers…. consumers’, in my view [have an] unquestioned, right to know anything they wish to know about the products they consume…. it is not my role, or Monsanto’s role, to decide these things. It is society’s role to decide those questions after appropriate debate” To the question “So you are open to labeling being introduced then?” Shapiro answered: “Yes. Of course” -Robert Shapiro, Monsanto CEO
“Recently you may have noticed a label appearing on some of the food in your supermarket. This is to inform you about the use of biotechnology in food. Monsanto fully supports UK food manufacturers and retailers in their introduction of these labels. We believe you should be aware of all the facts before making a purchase”. -Advertisement in the UK
“Monsanto fully supports the right of people in grocery stores to make informed choices about what they purchase.” -Monsanto website.
So the question is, why is it they suddenly don’t want us to know? What are they trying to hide?
