Open letter to alt. news sites everywhere: re Monsanto
Subject: College activism around the world against Monsanto
by Jon Rappoport
March 25, 2015
Once upon a time, there was a thing called college activism that reached outside the borders of the campus and exerted enormous power.
It’s long past the moment of knowing that Monsanto (and the other GMO/biotech giants) are doing great harm to human health, the land, and small farmers with their GMO crops and pesticides.
College groups need to form, and demand disinvestment from Monsanto.
This means students commanding their colleges and universities, in no uncertain terms, to get rid of every money-trace of Monsanto.
Get rid of, nullify, dump, refuse Monsanto research grants.
Cancel Monsanto-endowed chairs for professors.
Put an end to Monsanto student scholarships.
Sell off all Monsanto stock acquired through investment of college-fund monies. Likewise, cease all investment in trading institutions which in turn hold Monsanto stock.
Stop licensing university-held patents to Monsanto.
Divest. Wipe the slate clean.
Those of us who write for or publish “alternative” news sites should encourage college students to form groups for the expressed goal:
* Dump Monsanto.
* Make colleges Monsanto-free.
We’ve all spent time and energy researching, writing, and speaking about the crimes of Monsanto. That research can help college students bring themselves up to speed on the truths that have been buried by the mainstream press and government cronies of Monsanto.
Why not crash the monopolist’s party?
These days, giant corporations have their hands (holding out cash) deeply embedded in college affairs. Monsanto is an egregious example.
Suppose colleges reject that cash. Reject Monsanto.
Are students willing?
Let’s find out.
Are they willing to dig in and discover all the sources of Monsanto money infecting their colleges?
Would they be willing to boycott professors who are being funded by Monsanto?
Let’s find out.
Can the revolt against Monsanto have activist legs on college campuses?
Is this kind of activism dead, or just dormant?
Is there is a sleeping giant who can awaken?
Let’s find out.
If just a few college groups start the ball rolling, we can give them enough global publicity and support to inform and inspire college students around the world.
