Organic Spies Launches Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge: See the Video, Sell the Stock

 One of the most powerful yet secretive groups in all of food activism is Organic Spies, a group of dedicated researchers and whistleblowers who first came to fame by exposing Whole Foods employees lying on camera about GMOs being sold in their stores.

That story, exclusively released by Natural News, ultimately helped push Whole Foods to announce mandatory GMO labeling across all their stores by 2018 -- an enormous victory for honest labeling (if indeed Whole Foods makes good on their promise).

Now Organic Spies has partnered with Food Democracy Now to launch another groundbreaking video: the Monsanto Stock Plunge.

Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge targets Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street

Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge was designed to make people aware that they may inadvertently own Monsanto stock through the mutual funds they hold.

Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street mutual funds own and control enormous volumes of Monsanto stock. As is common in Wall Street investing, this is all done with total disregard for anything resembling ethics, respect for life, concern for the ecosystem, compassion for human health, etc. These mutual funds aren't interested in doing what's right; they're interested in doing what's profitable!

That's why Organic Spies says it's time for everyone to sell these mutual funds and encourage institutions to do the same. Click here to watch the Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge video on YouTube.

Retirement fund managers often have enormous discretion to decide where to invest their money. If they are made aware that many people want to divest from Monsanto, they may decide to sell Fidelity, Vanguard or State Street funds and move their investments to other funds that don't hold Monsanto.

A petition on the Food Democracy Now page reminds us all that Monsanto is the corporation that manufactures Agent Orange, DDT and PCBs, adding "Monsanto's corporate executives intentionally ignored the warning of their own scientists for decades regarding the harmful and even deadly effects these products had on their workers, communities where the chemicals were manufactured and even America's veterans."

"As Monsanto continues to lead the fight against GMO labeling in the U.S. with deceptive PR and ad campaigns, it's time to remind them that corrupting our democracy to protect their profits has a price."
