Millions will be encouraged to dump Monsanto stock this coming Friday, May 9th, to give a clear message to the biotech industry that we don’t support them at all. With rallies planned across the country, as well as picketing to bring attention to companies like Fidelity which owns a huge amount of Monsanto stock, activists everywhere will bring the poisoning, monopolizing Monsanto, and its supporters to their knees.
Monsanto completely dominates the world seed market – for now. More than 282 million acres are currently planted with Monsanto’s vile GMO soy and corn. Over 40% of US croplands are planted with this atrocious non-food, garbage. It’s simply time to cut off Monsanto’s allowance.
Many people don’t realize where Monsanto’s money comes from. Without people and institutions filtering cash into their coffers, they wouldn’t have been able to lie to farmers and consumers about GMOs, push back with illegal campaign funds, and sway governments and regulatory agencies around the globe.
While some people knowingly have supported Monsanto, others have a mutual fund or 401k that their employers set up for them, or simply because their fund managers haven ‘t been honest with them about where their invested dollars go. Food Democracy Now has found, after investigating for months, that the investors in Monsanto are some of the world’s largest and most popular mutual funds – names like Vanguard, Fidelity, and State Street. Monsanto’s own CEO, Hugh Grant, only owns .066% of all shares of Monsanto stock!

If you want to participate, there are three easy ways that you can easily deprive Monsanto of money and stop to aid its monopoly over our food supply:
- 1. Call your financial advisor and ask if you have a fund that contains Monsanto stock.
- 2. Tell your advisor to sell your funds that own Monsanto.
- 3. Ask your advisor to sell any of your funds that own Monsanto stock and opt for funds that do not invest in Monsanto or any chemical or junk food companies. (Many large food companies also help support Monsanto, like Pepsi, Kraft, Coca-Cola, etc.)
“I urgently request that you permanently remove Monsanto’s stock from investment portfolios under your management. In its 100-year history, Monsanto has proven itself to be one of the most destructive companies on the planet, regularly creating toxic chemical products that cause severe harm to human health and the environment.”
