Bee Costumes for Anti-GMO Rallies, Protests & Marches

by enslavedbyfaeries

Help save the bees by creating a BUZZ about how GMO crops and pesticides are killing bee colonies across the globe.

The first worldwide rally against GMO's took place on May 25, 2013. People of different, ages, races and religions came together and occupied the streets in capital cities across the globe to raise awareness about the corporate takeover and destruction of our food supply, our health, our government, and our environment by a company called Monsanto.

Many of those who participated in the March Against Monsanto, including many families and children, were there to raise awareness about the bee colonies that are dying at an astonishing rate worldwide because of the overuse of pesticides on GMO crops. The human race depends on bees to pollinate our crops. Our very survival depends on their existence.

This page features an assortment of bee costumes for children and adults. Including wings, DIY ideas and accessories to wear and raise awareness at the next March Against Monsanto, anti-GMO rally, parade or protest. Get your costume ready now and wear it proud!

God Save The Queen

Albert Einstein said that “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left."

Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is the term that has been used since 2006 to describe the disappearance of honeybee colonies. The phenomena has spread over the years from North America to Europe. Many scientists and researchers are proving that pesticides are to linked to the disorder, not by immediately killing the bees, but by the effects of returning to the colony or hive with the toxins in the pollen collected from the genetically modified (GM) RoundUp Ready crops. Big biotech companies like Monsanto, Bayer and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont produce and control the majority of the world's seeds and agrochemicals, -the herbicides and pesticides that have been scientifically linked to the huge decline of bees in recent years. Domestic bees are also commonly fed pesticide-laced GMO corn syrup which can weaken their immune systems.

It would be devastating to the human race if honeybees disappeared completely. Food would be scarce and prices would immediately rise giving more and more control to the corporations who already have a monopoly on the global food supply. It would hard to find nutrient rich food and many would suffer. The effects would ripple. There is great cause for concern.

Amidst all the controversy over genetically modified foods and the dying bees, Monsanto, who is largely blamed for colony collapse disorder, bought one of the biggest international research firms devoted to protecting and studying bees.

It has also been recently reported that robotic bees are being developed to pollinate Monsanto crops. It seems that Monsanto's dark history is on the brink of turning into modern day nightmare.

More and more people are becoming active in the food fight to stop Monsanto because they are outraged that their food is being controlled and supplied by the chemical company that is responsible for Agent Orange and DDT. It is an evil empire that has infiltrated the government and also has ties to organic and natural product companies which has led many to activists to stress that the labeling of GMO foods is no longer what they're fighting.

Stopping Monsanto through peaceful, non-violent actions and cutting off funding with informed consumer choices is the now the ultimate goal.


Staged Honeybee Die-In

At the conclusion of Milwaukee's March Against Monsanto on May 25, 2013 many activists dressed in bee costumes staged a die-in to raise awareness about the honeybee die-off that is occurring worldwide. It lasted less than a minute, but the impact of the performance was hugely successful and shared worldwide. Photos the dead "bees" were shared on far and wide on social networks sites and on anti-GMO blogs. This inspiring act of a few concerned individuals will, no doubt, inspire many bees to join similar actions at future rallies, protests, parades and marches. See the video footage of the event on Vimeo.

I did a article where I listed the food makers that use gmos and the ones that use the nature made stuff. The war will have to get way bigger than It Is now to stop them from using game products. The link to my story can be found here for anyone wanting to see It.

A specific kind of pesticide, neonicotinoids, is being blamed for the decline. However, it is likely that there are other factors involved. It may be that bee keepers have taken too much honey from the bees, replacing the bees' 'natural diet with fruit syrup too much. This cannot be good for them. Varoa mite is also a possible factor.

I do not see the link between genetically modified plants and bees. Pesticides, maybe, except they were in use long before bees began to decline. Isn't it more likely that some disease is causing the decline? Instead of blaming what might not be the cost, scientific research is required.

GMOs are a subject I'm still educating myself about so thanks for this.

Such an important topic for everyone to know! Nice job!

I'm all for it and completely support the all important honey bee, I have hives myself. Thank you for spreading this very important message. Many people don't know. I'm going to tweet and share this on Google and facebook.
