Tired of wearing GMO clothing? Want to get Monsanto off your back? Farm Wars will be partnering with Nick Brannigan to offer you the Farm Wars line of organic, non-GMO cotton T-Shirts, emblazoned with the Farm Wars logo and other original graphics from the site.
Non GMO Apparel was started by non GMO advocate Nick Brannigan. Nick is the host of Health ConspiracyRadio and author of the free eBook, I’m Eating WHAT?!?: The Health Risks of Genetically Modified Food and 10 Real World Solutions to Avoid Them.
Nick started Non GMO Apparel as a way to show opposition to GMOs in public without speaking a word and, more importantly, to further withdraw support from Big Biotech. A lot of people know which food choices to make to “vote with their dollars”, but a lot of people have no idea that most clothing is made from GMO cotton. In fact, it never ceases to amaze Nick that non-profit groups who fight for a GMO free food supply offer shirts made with GMO cotton in exchange for donations! Literally, accepting money to stop GMOs by giving you a product that supports GMOs!
You also help the environment by purchasing Non GMO Apparel. Not only by not supporting Bt-cotton (which hurts bees and other insects) or Roundup Ready cotton (which supports the heavy use of glyphosate), but our inks are water based and safe enough to pour down the sink. Nick Brannigan
So, take a look around Nick’s site, and keep your eyes open for Farm Wars. Here is a graphic depiction of what one of the shirts will look like:
Here in Poland the battle to save Polish farmland from corporate buy-outs continues. But that’s not all the Polish farmers are up against…Watch the video below. Tractors have been blockading government institutions from 14 January…
Regulations that the Warsaw government has imposed over the years have made it virtually impossible to sell farm processed foods to local shops, schools or private individuals. The only way farmers can conform with the hygiene and sanitary regulations imposed from above, is by carrying out their simple processing tasks in specially designed and equipped buildings that none can afford to build or to adapt.. except the very large producers supplying the food industry and supermarkets. Yes, that’s right – it’s all about destroying the competition – which in this case is the small and medium sized independent family farms that produce the best foods!
There are still one and a half million such farms in Poland!
ICPPC is supporting the protesting farmers to highlight this grossly unfair treatment of all who wish to provide fine quality, flavourful and ‘real’ farmhouse-foods in their own localities.
You too can be part of this vital protest…
Join in – by sending a brief letter in support of the farmers to Prime Minister Tusk urging him to change the regulations so that family farmers can sell their products locally! And send a copy of your letter to us here at ICPPC – firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!

Scientists from around the world have united to condemn the retraction by the editor of the Elsevier journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) of the pioneering study by Prof Séralini’s team on GM maize and Roundup herbicide.
Scientists condemn retraction of Séralini study
www.endsciencecensorship.org, 29 January 2014
* 41 scientists and experts demand reinstatement of the study
* Scientists around the world invited to add their signatures
SCIENTISTS from around the world have united to condemn the retraction[1,2] by the editor of the Elsevier journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) of the pioneering study on genetically modified (GM) maize and Roundup herbicide, conducted by Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini and his team at the University of Caen, France.
The study found that rats fed the GM maize and/or low levels of Roundup in their diet suffered severe organ damage, particularly to the liver, kidneys and pituitary gland. Additional unexpected observations were higher rates of large tumours and mortality in most treatment groups.
A group of 41 scientists and biosafety experts have signed a public statement condemning the retraction as an apparent “act of scientific censorship” and demanding that the journal reinstate the study, which they say contains findings of potentially critical importance to public health.
The group is inviting scientists to sign on to the statement, which is hosted at the new website, endsciencecensorship.org. Read the rest of this entry »
For those who take surviving an economic crash and maintaining a healthy food supply independent of the grid seriously, the fact that Michigan is even considering slapping a ban on the ownership of what it terms “farm” animals in residential neighborhoods is alarming.
Amidst a growing need for self-sufficiency in an increasingly precarious economic climate, this short-sighted and narrow-minded viewpoint is a huge step backwards in a march towards badly needed national food independence.
I wonder what the state of Michigan would have to say about the Victory Gardens of old… let them eat dirt? Read the rest of this entry »
Why don’t I see Jackson County’s fight to ban GMO planting broadcast far and wide on sites such as Natural News, Mercola, and the Institute for Responsible Technology? Why are these sites backing labeling, while completely ignoring this? Why don’t we see support for the banning of GMOs in the biggest GMO sugar beet capital of the country? Why don’t we see “Just Ban It” slogans broadcast all over alternative news sites instead of “Just Label It?”
Hint: Money, money, money, money……. sellout!!! If you make money from the sale of products produced by the same companies that produce GMOs, you might not be very interested in cutting off those suppliers and decreasing your bottom line. It’s business as usual…
