People like to talk about the obnoxious Hugh Grant, Monsanto CEO, and obviously a shareholder. The same goes for Bill Gates. He allegedly owns millions of shares of Monsanto stock. But who are the real owners of Monsanto?
The true owners of Monsanto are the institutions and people behind those institutions, not individuals like Gates and Grant. According to various sources, five mutual funds are the main shareholders of Monsanto, with the Vanguard Group, Inc. You can see the rest in the table below.
As you can see, the number of shares held by institutions dwarfs the number held by individuals, including those who do Monsanto's dirty work in the public arena.
The Vanguard Group owns more than $ 3 trillion in different investments, and mostly hated companies, like Monsanto. Also the largest companies in the world, such as:
Bank of America, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, Capital Research Global Investors, and FMR (Fidelity) are all key owners in the world. And this includes Monsanto. You could say that only four companies control all the big banks and major companies on the planet.
Among all of them, 96% of the shareholders voted against the labeling of GMOs.
On the other hand, the Federal Reserve is made up of 12 banks, represented by a council of only seven people, which is made up of representatives of the "big four", ... which in turn are present in all other entities.
An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the world economy, including Agribusiness.
Which should concern us more: the money trail supporting the "fun" science that continues to support biotech foods, or that, according to a report released last summer, the world's elite have more than $ 32 trillion hidden in offshore banks Around the world, they can fund lawsuit after lawsuit against people who are tired of being poisoned.
This means that seven people and their masters are poisoning the entire planet through biotechnology, Big Ag, (few and large corporations that run the Stock Market), big pharmaceuticals and big banks.
They are the invisible tentacles of this octopus that is strangling us. This is what must be stopped and not focus on the visible face of the genocidal, but "the behind". For that, as I always repeat, media NGOs and without a firm foundation should study a little more. The war is unequal, now we must aim at the heart, the wound perpetrated by the IARC is not enough.-
