Gearing up for Saturday’s March Against Monsanto, and already some of the opposition’s false flag operations are popping up on our local march Facebook page, in the form of a tin foil hat ear worm suggesting that Monsanto’s GMOs are designed to cull the population to reduce pressure on natural resources. Any activist who latches on to this meme of course will only discredit the movement.

Meanwhile, I will be wearing a sign saying “Ask Me Why”, and I will be carrying props in the form of healthy treats in an unmarked ziplock ( I will have the wrapper in my pocket) and offer to pop one in the questioner’s mouth if they close their eyes. They should say “no way” whereupon I will give them the rationale behind supporting State Sen. Frank Nicely’s  (R- 8th district) GMO required labeling bill now in the TN State Senate. GMO issues are far wider than just this bill, of course, but I will suggest this as a good place to start for newcomers to food activism.

The progress on labeling is all around us, as stores are filling up with more low sodium, gluten free, tree nut warnings, organic products, no high fructose corn syrup. This is just one more step in a movement that has considerable momentum.

I will report on our march next week. We have guest speakers lined up ( Senator Nicely spoke at last years event), an open mike, and workshop activities on, among other things, recognizing false flag infiltrators and legal rights and responsibilities. We fully expect Monsanto observers to be there as silent observers taking notes.

The weather looks to be sunny and warm, though it is a bit early for an accurate forecast.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    It's very disturbing, but I've seen some apparent examples of this too and it's been going on for quite a while. The brouhaha regarding HR 875 back in 2009 looks suspect in this regard. "Organic farming will be illegal! Backyard gardens will be against the law!" "Call your Congressman!" (and make stupid comments that make you sound like a nut). Who originated those viral emails? I wonder. Given the industry's history, there is no reason to doubt that multinational corporations would shy away from this sort of psy-ops because of any pangs of conscience.

    Just start getting public support for labeling or protecting farmers from contamination or whatever, and suddenly dicey characters start showing up and talking about chemtrails, plots to "depopulate" using vaccines, etc. Keep talking to them and you'll usually learn that they were once taken aboard a starship for some kind of colonoscopy procedure.

    Then there are the sovereign citizens ranting about Agenda 21 and the bar code mark of the beast  . . .

    Interestingly, if you don't let these folks hijack the conversation, they usually drift away. Maybe they only get paid if they can actually cause some measurable level of disruption or irreparable damage to your activities.

    And, of course, Monsanto is undoubtedly an NSA client, so their ops can be properly targeted to reduce credibility of grassroots groups. It's impossible to underestimate the value critical thinking skills to combat this type of operation.
