– Dump Monsanto Stock Day: Friday, May 9th (Activist Post, May 6, 2014):
Food Democracy Now (FDN) and GMO Inside.org are promoting a day of financial ‘returns’ for Monsanto, the premier genetically-modified-organism (GMO) chemical company. The ‘return’ both these organizations are promoting is the return of Monsanto stocks back to Monsanto, (divesting/selling/cashing in holdings) by conscientious consumers of their stock portfolio holdings of Monsanto stock held either directly or via mutual funds.
Fidelity alone owns more than $3.2 billion in Monsanto stock. In total, Fidelity manages more than $4.6 trillion in assets and more than 20 million customers in the U.S.
Here’s a website that has a table of mutual funds and companies that have stocks/investments in Monsanto http://www.ethicalinvesting.com/monsanto/avoid.shtml .
Here’s a webpage listing companies that support Monsanto.
According to a newsletter this writer received from GMO Inside,
This coming Friday, May 9th, FDN is leading flash mob protests in select cities across the U.S. at Fidelity Investment offices to let them know that we’re serious about dumping Monsanto’s toxic assets.
