Neil Young Boycotts Starbucks Over GMO Lawsuit

Rock legend Neil Young has recently spoken out against Monsanto, and also Starbucks, for a recent lawsuit that they have filed against the state of Vermont for the GMO labeling laws that have been implemented there.

“I used to line up and get my latte everyday, but yesterday was my last one. Starbucks has teamed up with Monsanto to sue Vermont, and stop accurate food labeling…Monsanto might not care what we think — but as a public-facing company, Starbucks does…If we can generate enough attention, we can push Starbucks to withdraw its support for the lawsuit, and then pressure other companies to do the same…Considering that Starbucks has been progressive on LGBT and labor issues in the past, it’s disappointing that it is working with the biggest villain of them all, Monsanto

,” Young wrote on his website this week.

“There’s much more at stake here than just whether GMO foods will be labeled in a single U.S. state. Vermont is the very first state in the U.S. to require labeling. Dozens of other states have said that they will follow this path — in order to encourage this, we need to ensure that Vermont’s law stands strong,” he added.

More and more people who are in the public eye are starting to speak out about their thoughts on controversial topics. Just this week we reported that Aphex Twin, a popular electronic music producer, publicly urged his fans to question the official story of 9/11.

Activism is not a new path for Neil Young, in fact, he has been speaking out on a variety of issues since the Vietnam war.
