“Ode to Monsanto”

Monsanto lobbyists have bought loyalty and love from lawmakers at every level—resulting in federal gifts like the Monsanto Protection Act, and favors like the poison pill triggers in the country’s only two state GMO labeling laws.

It’s a good deal, unless you’re a consumer who wants to know what’s in your food or cares about money’s corrupting influence on our politics. That’s why people are speaking out, including a wave of artists who want Monsanto’s influence to end.

Check out this video that Grammy-nominated artist Maimouna Youssef dedicated to the GMO labeling movement, called “Ode to Monsanto.” It features a great song that is packed with pointed facts about Monsanto and GMOs–and it’s the type of movement-building art that can really open the eyes of anyone who sees it.
