" It is easy to conquer anger through love, attachment through reasoning, falsehood through truth, bad thoughts through good ones and greed through charity. Love as thought is truth. Love as action is Right Conduct. Love as feeling is Peace. Love as understanding is non-violence. Love is Selflessness, Selfishness is lovelessness. Love gives and forgives, Selfishness gets and forgets. "

Hungary decided to eliminate all plantations using GMO seeds from Monsanto. According to the Minister of Rural Development Lajos Bognar, around 500 hectares of corn crops were burned this week - equivalent to five million square meters. The intention is that the country has no produce originating from genetically modified material.

In April, Hungary became the first country to ensure its people’s “material and mental health” by guaranteeing “an agriculture free of genetically modified organisms” in its new Fundamental Law. (complete version)
July 17, 2011 - Hungary firmly against GM seeds, says official.
Hungary will uphold strict measures against genetically modified (GM) seeds, a deputy state secretary of the Rural Development Ministry told a press conference on Thursday. Lajos Bognar said that the government would also seek an amendment to the Penal Code to introduce strict punishment for distributors of seeds polluted with genetically modified organisms (GMO). He added that Hungary's GMO-free status was an important, strategic asset.

Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA -- in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where "the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys."
On January 27, 2011 the USDA announced that they fully deregulated genetically engineered Alfalfa (GE Alfalfa). This means that the US farmers are allowed to plant this new GE crop this spring. Crops rarely stay within their designated area. Bees and other pollinators carry GE plants' pollen to other fields, spreading it to organic and non-GE crop varieties. Once these organic varieties carry altered genes, they can no longer be considered organic. This is a problem for organic alfalfa farmers themselves or dairy producers because beef and dairy cattle rely on organic alfalfa as a feedstock. This way GE alfalfa will certainly cripple the organic food industry. However, we can stop this selfish nightmare if we speak out in this topic and/or sign petitions and spread the news for Taking Actions Globally to stop Monsanto's activities:
