ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Protesters plan to march on Tuesday outside the annual Monsanto shareholders meeting in Creve Coeur. They say that Monsanto’s genetically engineered foods pose health risks to humans.

For the first time, a shareholder will call for a vote on labeling of GMO’s or Genetically Modified Organisms. GMO’s have been banned in more than a dozen countries.

Monsanto officials say that the products help farmers produce more from their land while conserving resources like water and energy.

    I have heard there has been some police harassment of the protesters using obscure anti panhandling laws to say they can’t protest near the site. Any news on that?

    Well, of COURSE, David – these protesters are protesting corporate America, which OWNS our law enforcement, and whose protection is in fact the primary purpose of law enforcement, so of COURSE the police will hassle these people. Happens every time.

    Meanwhile, the anti-abortion clown circus outside Planned Parenthood on Forest Park continues daily, blocking the sidewalk, standing with signs on a public walk – just the opposite, breaking every law on the books, but with complete immunity from arrest or prosecution.

    And some here think we are different from Russia, or Iraq, or Iran, or China, who “oppress” those in dissent? No difference. Six of one, half dozen of another. Different agendas, same methods.
