A week of Occupy Wall Street Maui events kick off today with the establishment of an encampment near the Monsanto offices in Kihei.

A series of marches, rallies and vigils are planned throughout the week as the group expresses their concerns over herbicide use, production of GMO products, and arguments of impacts on small farmers.

An event flyer makes claims of food supply control, government manipulation and environmental poisons.

Monsanto Hawaii Community Affairs Director, Paul Koehler responded to the planned demonstrations saying that while the company respects everyone’s right to voice their opinion, he said, “It’s unfortunate that a number of misleading and factually incorrect statements about Monsanto and genetically engineered crops continue to circulate.”

The week-long demonstration being launched today comes of the heels of a separate protest in October (shown above), organized by Millions Against Monsanto Hawaii, which raised similar concerns over GMO crops. File photo by Madeline Ziecker.

He said the company recognizes that the topics can be complex and reiterated the company’s commitment to transparency and dialogue.

“We’re happy to have an open, respectful discussion with anyone genuinely interested in learning more about who we are and what we do,” he said.

The week of events planned by Occupy Wall Street Maui and posted on the occupymaui.com website include:

  • Monday, January 23, 2012: a roundup-themed garden highlighting concerns over herbicide use.
  • Tuesday, January 24, 2012:  a march is planned past Monsanto crops along the Piilani Highway in South Maui.
  • Wednesday, January 25, 2012:  a rally in Kahului is planned to spread information on the effects of GMO products.
  • Thursday, January 26, 2012:  a march is planned in Wailuku to protest Monsanto and claims of the company’s influence in government.
  • Friday, January 27, 2012: An Occupy with Aloha event is planned at the University of Hawaii Maui College.
  • Saturday, January 28, 2012:  Plans to Occupy local farmers markets and fruit stands, and gathering for a day of teach-ins, music, and organic food is planned.
  • Sunday, January 29, 2012:  A dusk vigil will be held for small farmers at the occupation site fronting Monsanto on Maui.

Koehler said Monsanto Hawaii is working with the Police Department to ensure safety of all during the planned Occupy events.  “Our number one concern,” he said, “is for the safety of everyone involved, including that of drivers passing by on the highway, pedestrians, our employees and the demonstrators.”

    Monsanto is an outstanding company who’s products are used by real farmers to safely produce more food. Any person or group who claims otherwise is misinformed.  

    • ChezOlait

      Much like previous pronoucements by the real “Joe the Plumber”, who spoke out against his own best interests; you are keeping the spirit of his message alive.  Well done.

    • Gixxxit

      Joetheplumer your an Idiot! And I’m sure a Monsatan Troll so go drink another bottle of your roundup poison goon.

    • Zumaster

      YOU are the one misinformed my friend and it’s pretty scary that you even think this. I’ve been researching them for 20 yrs partner. They are the dark side and there is not one shred of evidence you can come up with that proves there stuff is safe. But go ahead and eat it, You have free will…thats why we want it labelled because we want a choice NOT to eat this junk. Please do your homework!

    • Foodinc

      Get your head out of the sand, JOE. Wake up and smell the Roundup!

    • Peyton Sherwood

      You’re out of your mind. The informed stay far far away from their poisons. Eat it if you wish, but I don’t want their products in my body. 

      • <hr*$TOPHer Kasak

        Good luck not breathing to avoid their GMO plant matter’s pollen. Must also be nice to live somewhere where you’re informed of what you’re eating. A handful of GMO djinn are out of the bottle, and the mutated genetic material tends to spread like reverse zombie wildfire through the ecosystem, contaminating all whom eat them.    

  • Anonymous

    Occupy Monsanto. GMOS are killing agriculture as we know it.

  • Gmofreemaui

    Monsanto Hawaii Community Affairs Director, Paul Koehler is the treasurer of the Maui Farmer’s Bureau. Hmmmmmmm….. He and the the MFB Executive Director
    Warren K. Watanabe attended several county council meeting last year to oppose gmo labeling. Paul states above,”We’re happy to have an open, respectful discussion with anyone genuinely interested in learning more about who we are and what we do,” .Paul~why did you back out of the Akuku show you agreed to participate in with Dr. Lorrin Pang, Maui Health, Dpt., Yo Kobayashi,  hosted by Netra Halperin? The perimeters of the show were specifically designed to give everyone fair time and respect.I’m sorry I missed your presentation at the Maui Rotary Club. Why do many rotary clubs in in  Hawaii oppose GMO Labeling? I’m so happy your open to transparent and respectful discussions. I am definitely genuinely interested in learning what who ‘you are and what you do’ . How about a list of all the Maui businesses, schools, politicians and individuals the Monsanto Corporation makes contributions to. Are you willing to provide that in a transpatent manner? We’re all looking forward to your response.

    Thank you!

    That last paragraph is
    ridiculous?!?! Why does a company have to work with police to ensure the
    safety of all during a PEACEFUL OCCUPY protests??!! in Maui??? Eh C’mon!!  There goes your
    hard earned tax dollars folks!!! Concerns for drivers passing by??? If drivers can
    handle reading a giant McDonald’s/
    Tesoro sign while driving I’m sure they can handle me expressing my
    first amendment. You know; just like all our public officials do during
    election time. [THINK ABOUT.]

    • Gmofreemaui

      well said! Mahalo for some common sense! It’s not right for the MPD to discriminate my right to wave as passerbys holding a sign standing up for my first amendment from those running for office. I clearly expressed this to the police present yesterday. After much debate, I finally received an answer I could live with and proceeded to wave and hold my sign.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brady-Townsend/100003013882092 Brady Townsend

    Why are they scared to debate Dr Pang? Why wont they study long term effects of pollen intake? Why are the police standing on Monsanto property and not working with the protesters? Why do they tell us we cant wave at cars? Why do they not allow us to have sanitary facilities? Why are they forcing us to leave at dusk? or how they ruined the Papaya market here in Hawai’i ?WHY DO WE ALLOW A POISON MAKER TO MASQUERADE  AS A FOOD SUPPLIER. by the people for the people. ….it is time to say” Monsanto has to go”

    • Jimkrisw5

      I think MONSANTO is afraid you will enter their experimental farms and destroy their biological experiments. That has happened before, hint hint.

      • Justinecharenton

        why instigate an excuse for violent oppression against peaceful protest? … how troll worthy!

  • Rayne Tsering

    Monsanto is the scum of the earth.  Their GMO foods are poisonous.  Of course they are going to put on their best appearance when confronted like this.  Would the devil be convincing if his horns were showing??? Puuuuulleeeeasssse.

  • Urth

    Monsanto purchased Xi (formerly known as Blackwater) Security’s “intelligence” wing in 2010. Why would a company who claims to do good need to hire a mercenary army’s intelligence wing? There is nothing good about Monsanto. They create poison that kills and they are patenting life in an effort to control the food supply. There are many great movies on the topic and before you start defending this company, I suggest you do some research into them. My suspicion is that any of these “pro-monsanto” comments below are from either employees, Xi’s former officers, or people who are directly being payed by Monsanto. There is NOTHING good about this company, it does NOT benefit humanity,  and we will not stop until every last GMO seed, animal and POISON is removed from this earth. We are not fooled or afraid. See ya soon buggas!

    • Hiver_x

      Yes, but its “Xe” and they didn’t buy them out they purchased their… services.

  • OWS-Maui Member Responds

    Please yes, Mr.Koehler, let’s do talk. Out of primary concern for our demonstrable safety, for those occupants living along the Pi’ilani and those working your fields: could you discuss what safeguards, like say an EIS, your employer implemented prior to releasing highly mutagenetic (as all studies performed with GMO consumption I’m aware of suggest) material into our air (in pollen and dust), our water (groundsoil and runoff), our land (gene-transmission through nematodes and other microorganisms), and ultimately our food (with papaya, and now sweetcorn, on one end and GMO seed/feed on the other)??????????????

    Yes really let’s do talk. You know where to find us this week or anytime thereafter. We are literally dying to hear back from you.

  • Brian Herrick

    It’s illegal for us to steal music online, but Monsatan is allowed to steal all of our indigenous crops. Which seeds HAVEN’T they monopolized yet?

    • Jack Adam Weber

      Brian, good point. 

      I often compare GMO crops and their built-in need for increased herbicide use to the regulations we all have to face here in Hawaii with regard to our septic systems. Why do we have to go to great expense to control our sewage up to a mile away from the ocean while anyone can spray as much RoundUp as they want even as near as right at the shores?

      Not that we should be allowed to run our sewage into communal waters, but let’s have a consistent standard for real pollution. 

      Faulty thinking.

  • Jack Adam Weber

    As I began reading this article and came across the line: “An event flyer makes claims of food supply control, government manipulation and environmental poisons,” I began to shake my head, saying to myself, “Flyers should stay to the most important facts, not the less verifiable and even speculative possibilities.” While these speculations may be accurate, they are not a smart way to protest Monsanto and raise awareness of the grave dangers of GMO foods. Sure enough, the media picks up on this one flyer and bases an entire article around it.  Better is to stick to the facts such as the widespread evidence that GMO “foods” are causing horrible abnormalities in test animals including deformities, cancers, physiological aberrations, and even death. Also, the few human studies done show that the claims that Monsanto used to put their GMO foods into the mainstream food supply are not standing up to science: e.g., that the GE (genetically engineered) DNA is not rendered inactive in the human digestive tract but rather has been found to transfer to our gut bacteria and, in another study, that GE pesticides (Bt-toxin was found in unborn fetuses and in the umbilical cords of pregnatnt women).  https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=gmail&attid=0.1&thid=1340ede2f21b9277&mt=application/pdf&url=https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui%3D2&ik=b2c10abcbd&view=att&th=1340ede2f21b9277&attid=0.1&disp=safe&zw&sig=AHIEtbTlcFAHVBDHKnqu7HeqNgb&pli=1Protestors could also highlight the fact that: 1) GMO crops have directly led to  hundreds of millions of pounds of additional pesticide and herbicide use in the Unite States (see: http://www.i-sis.org.uk/GMcropsIncreasedHerbicide.php)

    2) GM crops are causing the development of superbugs and superweeds that are causing untold damages

    3) In India thousands of farmers are committing and have committed suicide due to Monsanto’s false promises and the subsequent GMO crop failures.

    4) the actual poison in Monsanto’s GE inventions were never directly identified, reviewed, or tested for safety, but instead they decieved and colluded with government agencies to pas their poison into the food supply (http://www.i-sis.org.uk/BTTIGMC.php).

    And the list goes on…

    1)  
    GM foods have not been adequately tested for
    safety, both for preliminary safety and long-term safety

    2)  
    FDA cautions for the safety of GMO foods was
    ignored by political appointees when GMO foods were approved

    3)  
    GMO foods such as corn, soybean, cottonseed , and
    canola have genes from non-plant species forced into them which do not occur in
    nature. This is dangerous tampering with natural order.

    4)  
    Genetic engineering creates extensive mutations in
    hundreds of thousands of sites in plant’s DNA which can lead to aberrant
    protein production leading to allergies and other auto-immune disorders.

    5)  
    Studies document that more herbicides and pesticides
    are used on GMO crops, which places dangerous poisons into our environment and
    food supply.

    6)  
    GM soy has been shown to cause allergies in greater
    frequency than natural soy, as cooked GM soy has 7 times the amount of a known
    soy allergen.

    7)  
    GM crops of soy, corn, and papaya contain proteins
    of known allergens. Bt-toxin corn and cotton cause allergic reactions in farm
    workers, as it is thousands of times more concentrated than natural bacteria
    version.

    8)  
    GMOs can make you allergic to non-GMO foods by
    impairing digestive function, as tests on rats has demonstrated.

    9)  
    GMOs proved to injure the livers of  rats fed GMO canola, potatoes, and soy.

    10)        
     GMOs
    have been shown to cause sterility, infant mortality, and maligned reproductive
    organs in rats.

    11)        
     Thousands of
    sheep, buffalo, and goats in India died after grazing on Bt cotton plants after
    harvest. Others suffered poor health and reproductive problems.

    12)        
     Farmers in Europe and Asia say that cows, water buffaloes,
    chickens, and horses died from eating Bt corn varieties.

    13)        
     About two
    dozen US farmers report that Bt corn varieties caused widespread sterility in
    pigs or cows.

    14)        
     The
    stomach lining of rats fed GM potatoes showed excessive cell growth, a
    condition that may lead to cancer. Rats also had damaged organs and immune
    systems.

    15)        
     If GM
    foods on the market are causing common diseases or if their effects appear only
    after long-term exposure, we may not be able to identify the source of the
    problem for decades, if at all. There is no monitoring of GMO-related illnesses
    and no long-term animal studies. Heavily invested biotech corporations are
    gambling with the health of our nation for their profit.

    16)        
     When
    the tipping point of consumer concern about GMOs was achieved in Europe in
    1999, within a single week virtually all major food manufacturers committed to
    remove GM ingredients.

    17)        
     GMO
    foods were supposedly created to solve world hunger, but in fact statistics
    show that yields are often no better and even worse than non-GMO crops.

    18)        
     With
    the relatively recent development of resistant weeds and bugs to RoundUp and
    engineered Bt-toxin, the promise of GMO crops to benefit starvation are
    actually creating blight and the scary reality of super-weeds and super-bugs,
    much the same way that antibiotic-resistant super-bacteria are inadvertently
    bred even though antibiotic drugs are becoming more and more concentrated and
    powerful.

    19)        
     Bt toxins and Bt crops contain a fundamental flaw in their regulatory
    assessment—their toxicity testing is not based on the toxins in Bt crops
    themselves, but on surrogate toxins. This means that no tests have been
    performed on the actual Bt-toxins produced by the Bt-toxin GM plants.

    20)        
     GMO foods were introduced into the food
    supply not only with inadequate testing but under corrupt pretense by biotech
    colluding with biased and government officials and policy makers with vested financial  interests in overlooking due diligence for
    the safety of GMO foods.

      Very Nice Post Jack! Thank you!

  • Hawaiilover

    Excellent protesting! Hawaii is being used as a genetic testing site with unknown consequences. Experiments on AIDS viruses inserted in corn for possible pharmacological applications is frightening! This biohazard corn is grown openly- allowing cross pollination of frankencorn. Hawaii is unique in biological flora and fauna. I personally believe MONSANTO is doing experiments in Jawaii in case genetic experiments go haywire and ruin crops or get humans sick or killed, it will be isolated. Unacceptable!! Also, the “Roundup ready” crops planted four times a year is toxic to the soil by 400%!! This is 400% times the environmental damage caused in the mainland, since MOnsanto plants just one crop a year there. Fight for your environmental health! No to GMO and experimental open air crops!!!

  • Hawaiilover

    MONSANTO smiles and gives away money to grease the palms of those who will protect their ability to conduct horrible experiments. Do you know what they’re doing right in the open air? Crazy biological experiments with un natural genetic mutant combinations! Viruses & bacteria freely injected in seeds. Why are they allowed to experiment in Hawaii? They ruined the Papaya forever. Evacuations may be next. I love Hawaii & the unique plants and environment!! MONSANTO just uses, abuses & profits off the risks yOu are taking! Then, anything to make money off, they will patent life forms they claim!! The only way one corporation can wield so much power with so little oversight is because they OWN our government officials! M

    • Jimkrisw5

      MONSANTO had George Bush fast tracking and taking safety shortcuts. MONSANTO has cronies in the FDA, USDA, even the Supreme Vourt. Former MONSANTO employees are even diplomats to bully governments to allow GMO. There is a reason Haiti refused their Trojan horse of 450 tons of seeds! Look up MOnsanto on Wikipedia- you will be angry at their blatant disregard for human life, their record of illegal dumping in the US and abroad, their quest for bigger profits, their influence in gov’t, their MILLIONS they spend lobbying!!

  • Roselanii

    The rep from Monsanto
    is the one feeding misinformation. Monsanto makes agent orange, DDt,
    Roudup, GMO seeds and crops. Now they own their own private military.
    Blackwater!!! So who is the deceptive, killer? Monsanto…..
    How dare they call these peaceful protestors misinformed… SHame on
    Monsanto.   They are using our island as an open air lab.  We should all be up in arms over this.  I know farmers , real farmers.  Not factory farmers, and they do not like Monsanto.  So whoever wants to use the safe food production arguement.  Well guess what you are uninformed….   I am so tired of these so called easy answers to very convoluted issues.   Please we are not all that stupid.  And yes we do have jobs… thanks .  We just care about the island, not money.
     

  • 808state1028

    If your seeds are so safe, then why do you not label GMO foods???  With all due respect Paul Koehler, humans ARE NOT round-up ready.   I have seen how your GMO seeds have impacted our island, from the diseases in our coconuts and papayas, to the white air with metal particles in an attempt to modify the weather, not to mention the discolored landscape or hazy skies.  We do not want your pesticides in our bodies, or in our water, or in our food, or in our precious earth.
    I do not need you to clarify things for me, for I am not mislead, and the fact is that you are either in denial or telling lies.  DO NOT MESS WITH MOTHER NATURE.

    Monsanto Hawaii Community Affairs Director, Paul Koehler responded to
    the planned demonstrations saying that while the company respects
    everyone’s right to voice their opinion, he said, “It’s unfortunate that
    a number of misleading and factually incorrect statements about
    Monsanto and genetically engineered crops continue to circulate.”

    FACT:  Monsanto’s GMO crops, despite claims to be resistant to herbicides and pesticides, actually require significantly more harsh chemicals. 

    Hawaiian ancestors lived off this land without your pesticides, herbacides or GMO seeds.   Shame on you Monsanto.  You may brainwash some, and you may buy others (FDA, local government), but you cannot fool me, and I will spread the word to as many as humanly possible.

    The world says no to GMO.   France, Hungary, and Peru are a few of the countries that have decided to take a stand against Monsanto. Hungary actually went as far as to destroy 1000 acres
    of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds,
    according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural
    Development Lajos Bognar.  Peru has also taken a stand for health
    freedom, passing a monumental 10 year ban on genetically modified foods.
    Amazingly, Peru’s Plenary Session of the Congress made the decision
    despite previous governmental pushes for GM legalization. The known and
    unknown dangers of GMO crops seem to supersede even executive-level
    governmental directives.

    Wendy. While it is nice that you posted anything at all about this you fall far short of a comprehensive report and it’s urgency to the public safety of the Aina and it’s people. You quote Monsanto,without a rebuttal quote from the other side. Actually there are no side to this story at all. If you did any research it would be perfectly clear that Paul Koeler is a liar. Just last week they threatened our county health officer Dr. Pang and a UH Professor. They’re GE products will insidiously alter forever our soil, water and air. They have weaseled their way into the top  of all branches of our Govt. Their products are banned around the world and have done no good to papaya farmers. They are controlling the seeds of the world which makes food a weapon. They have bankrupted thousands of farmers. They;re products are proven scientifivlly to cause genetic and other dis-eases in the body…should I go on? People need to be informed and inspired to care about this planet and take direct action NOW! It may already be too late and those brave souls who ARE not afraid to speak to power are out there on the highway watched by Blackwater Security Guards and Maui Cops are there for ALL of us…. Maybe you could have had the journalistic integruty to get a quoye from them-us. We are the Many and we wont stop until we drive them off this planet and bankrupt them to hell…

    I recently heard Dr. Pang’s alarming presentation about
    GMO’s dangers to our health and agricultural environment. This info instigated
    me to join the Occupy Monsanto demonstration, which was much smaller than I
    anticipated. The police were quite helpful to folks crossing the highway
    without a crosswalk. The officers protected our right to demonstrate, equally
    with ensuring that the public laws and the rights of private properties were
    observed, and everyone was safe.  The
    important fact is that all GMO products should be banned on Maui to protect
    Maui’s natural and delicate ecosystems.

    As long as we have Monsanto’s revolving doors in the FDA, EPA, USDA, Congress and many businesses, this will NEVER stop. We need to end the FDA, EPA and USDA as we know it and find other solutions to our environmental problems. Make sure you do your research as to which candidates will allow The People to make choices, to stop the NDAA, the SOPA and PIPA and the corruption, as we know it, in our government. Any elected official that takes money from the elite/lobbyists will not work for us. Any official that flip-flops will not keep his/her words. Non that want more Wars will do either. Any of them who “pardons” (practically what is been happening right now) will NOT represent us anymore. Do your research! Monsanto is at the top of the corrupt chain along with the bankers, gas companies and war pushers/military contracts (i.e. they are the ones pushing for more wars).

  • Jackstay

    As a consumer, all we are asking is a clear indication of what is contained and the method of farming used that influence the product. Those that haven’t a concern for the food they eat aren’t affected by this request and those that do seek to control what is ingested need this information to make an educated decision. There is an upside and downside to most everything these days but information and lack of it shouldn’t be the premise for consumption. It’s easy to “hate the big corporations” and focus frustration in these times, but focusing on the right remedy for the consumer is paramount to trying to change a corporation as that won’t happen. As this planet exceeds the ability to feed it’s population, science will naturally be called on as a remedy but it’s treating the disease, not curing it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joakim.borg1 Joakim Borg

    If you cant prove that its harmless it shouldent be used. The pesticide industries are linked in on the gmo they want to sell pesticide and it also leds to more of it in the food production. one scary thing is that the pesticide industry is one of the biggest seller of crops. and if gmo is out you cant take it back. also there is the patent law that say you have to pay patent for food. its crazy.

  • Zina Hoda

    It is deeply disheartening that we are losing our choices and losing our rights. Monsanto is clearly the wolf in lambs clothing and who ever has aligned with them. Who would align with them and why?? Who would allow such an organization to try and poison and kill us??  Greed is the evil seed…….. Monsanto’s seed is the evil seed. Unfortunately, these folks are not concerned about the long term devastating and destructive life-threatening effects on humanity and mother earth. They clearly have a different agenda, it is not about life or health and wellness. People are aware of their grand plan.

    The light will prevail. Clearly they have underestimated Divine Light. The world is awakening to such diabolical organizations and people are taking a stand.  Good thing there is law of cause and effect!!  If you destroy, kill and poison people, guess what the natural effect will be.

    And by the way what is misleading and incorrect? I guess thousands of high level scientists from all over the world  are wrong about the danger of Monsanto’s poisonous and toxic seeds.
