Monsanto vs. Mother Earth.

10 Aug

003

A few nights ago I watched a documentary on TG4…Ireland’s Irish language channel…about the effect Monsanto has had on agriculture in India.  I had read something of this but this programme really spelled out just how evil this company is and has been in it’s attempt to murder India’s agriculture. The main GM crops grown in India are cotton and rice.  Cotton is a very important crop for Indian’s farmers. Actually most of the world’s cotton comes from India. The farmers were promised higher yields and better quality cotton. However…the seed are much more expensive than indigenious varieties and they will not perform without copious amounts of extra pesticides and extra water. Farmers were not told this at the beginning. They end up in a spiral of debt from which they can not escape. Gm cotton growers have 80% more debt. Many thousands of farmers have committed suicide leaving their families in dire straits.

004

Of course these are terminator technology seeds so new seed must be purchased every year. Monsanto has bought up many of the Indian seed companies so there is little option left if farmers wish to return to using native seeds. Often the seed packets remain the same except for the little Monsanto logo in the bottom corner. A distinct disadvantage as most of the farmers are illiterate.

The remnants of these crops go on to do further damage to the farmers animals. The straw left over from rice and cotton is fed to animals. There have been many animal deaths after eating this GM straw. It is thought the animals can’t digest this food and it kills the bacteria in the rumen.

013

Rice production has also been contaminated by GM seeds. In a country that boasted over 30,000 varieties of rice it is now reduced to around 150 varieties.  Golden Rice was supposed to be the new magic crop that provided Vitamin A which is deficient in the Indian diet. What the growers were not told was that 9kg of rice would have to be eaten daily to get your daily allowance of the vitamin.

There is however some fightback. Vandana Shiva the renowned environmentalist has set up Navdanya…a network of seed keepers and organic growers spread across 17  Indian states.

013

Here in Europe we also need to be on our guard. Monsanto have been saying that they are going to withdraw from selling GM seeds in Europe….however….and this is very worrying…Monsanto are now using loopholes in European law to seek patents on common fruits and veg that exist naturally in Nature. It seems Monsanto is no longer content with with manipulating, patenting and selling it’s own GM seeds… it has as it’s goal the ownership of every plant in existence.   Please inform yourself and join over 2 million others in signing this petition:                                                  http://www.avaaz.org/en/monsanto_vs_mother_earth_nm/?bigwYcb&v=26065

Sadly here in Ireland we are not GM free either. GM potatoes are being trailed in Carlow this year and all non-organic animal feeds have a percentage of GM maize…this is not stated on the labels in the supermarket.  Make no mistake every country on the Planet is under assault from this powerful corporation. Sadly our governments are working with them.  In America this is blatantly obvious. The Deputy Commissioner of the FDA…Michael Taylor…is a former vice president of Monsanto. Does’nt seem right to me!!

What can we do? We can let the supermarkets know we do not want produce that has GM residues. Ask them about GM labelling.  Grow as much as we can ourselves from organic seeds. Save the seeds of crops that do well…they will be acclimatised to your area.

Be vigilant…the assault on Mother Earth is ongoing…we must do what we can to help her.

    It’s frightening to think what’s ending up in our food chain. Not just GM but cheap meat, meat that isn’t even what it says it is on the packaging, and vegetables that cost an arm and a leg but taste horrible. We’ll fight on!

    • bridget August 10, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

      Best if you can buy organic and grow what veg you can if you have land.

      • Sophie Cussen August 11, 2013 at 10:12 am #

        Totally, which is what I am doing and encorouging other’s to do as well, through my blog. 🙂

    Thanks for the synopsis, of what I missed on TG4 – it surely doesn’t seem right to any clear thinking person and can only escalate environmental pressures and speed up the coming global food crisis. Monsanto’s actions in India is reminiscent of what Nestle did in the 80s, flooding poor countries with ‘free’ baby milk, then withdrawing it after three months when mothers had no chance of returning to breast feeding. Babies starved while Nestle got rich. It seems the sheer greed of certain corporations knows no bounds. Our government has clearly wimped out when it comes to standing up to big corporates – but we must keep reminding them otherwise!

    • bridget August 10, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

      We must indeed remind them of how we feel but I do feel they are just so driven by power and corruption that they don’t listen to the people on the street. Despite all the lobbying we now have GM spuds growing on Irish soil.

      • limewindow August 11, 2013 at 5:25 pm #

        I share the general sense of disillusionment with current (and past) government. The only possible light at the end of the tunnel is to replace them, again, but this time with a more direct model of democracy, which would enable people to call a referenda on any given subject. http://directdemocracyireland.ie/

      • bridget August 11, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

        We definitely need a change…soon…before this country is gone beyond the tipping point.

    Those buttheads at mosanto are messing with our corn here in the U.S. Regular folks don’t get the ramifications of what the fall-out can be if they are not fought against.

    • bridget August 10, 2013 at 7:00 pm #

      I think most people are’nt even aware of what’s going on. When we went to the March Against Monsanto in Dublin people in the streets were asking “who is Monsanto.”

  4. Small House Under a Big Sky August 10, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    I’ve seen the film. This is a very serious issue we are facing in the states. How can one company be allowed to hijack our food source? People are rising up in the streets and protesting this issue. The government is NOT helping us and in fact we believe that this is “all about the money.”. I am glad to see other countries stopping GMO’s before it starts. Hold steadfast~

      It’s hard to be optimistic in the face of all the corruption that’s going on everywhere.

  5. madcrowherbals August 10, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

    Agreed. Monsanto continues to exceed any definition of a rotten to the core corporation that I can think of! Ugh.

    Let’s hope more and more people not only become aware but start voting with their feet!!

    The potatoes being grown here are cisgenic as opposed to transgenic, that is to say only genes from other potatoes varieties have been used, which on the surface sounds fine, after all Sarpo Miro were evolved cross breeding different types of potatoes, but that took nearly fifty years to achieve where as cisgenic takes only a very few years, however, problems occur with this method as some plants have natural poisons within them and when the genes are inserted there is no guaranteeing where the inserted gene will end up, this can cause plants to become extra toxic, apparently no markers are used. Holland is happy to accept cisgenic fruit and veg, the rest of Europe are more cautious and rightly so.
    We had the misfortune to see Country File last week, in the UK the animal feed lots have already arrived, not quite as bad as in the US but 900 dairy cows all permanently in housed and fed concentrates which will be full of GMOs, this milk will be sold to the unsuspecting customer for the same price as cattle who are grass fed and allowed to graze. What a world!

    • bridget August 11, 2013 at 7:40 am #

      So sad to hear of food lots coming to our neck of the woods. No doubt what comes to England eventually makes it’s way over here. Did’nt know about the difference between transgenic, cisgenic. However they don’t sound very inviting either and not a lot of difference between them and Gm. Crazy technology that no one really knows the end result of. What a world indeed! Where will it end…hopefully with everything coming full circle back to natural ways again.

  8. gardendaze August 11, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    It’s just shocking what’s going on here in the US with Monsanto–and what our courts are permitting them to get away with. I get my seeds from a great company in Missouri that is very pro-active in posting all over social media every time Monsanto even breathes–but I agree with the majority of your commenters–most folks don’t know what’s going on and even sadder, most folks probably don’t care.

    • bridget August 11, 2013 at 7:34 pm #

      It is a sad state of affairs. We each have to do our own little bit and try and spread the word as best we can. Some of whats going on in America is beyond belief…especially the revolving door policy that seems to exist between the government and Monsanto.

  9. KL August 12, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    Monsanto is the sole reason for all the suicides that’s happening in India. A very sad situation. This morning I was reading that European law is looking into restricting people doing gardening in their homes. Have you heard about that? What’s wrong with this world?

    • bridget August 12, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

      Had’nt heard about that…it does’nt surprise me though. They want to own every morsel that goes into our bodies. The EU and the governments seem to be working alongside them too. The world is gone crazy…

  10. tynana August 20, 2013 at 1:36 am #

    Hi Bridget loving your blog so far. This problem with our food supply is exactly why I started trying to grow our own veggies. And I don’t understand why the press doesn’t cover this the way they should… sad sad

    • bridget August 20, 2013 at 8:00 am #

      As you and I know…nearly all the media are in the grip of the corporations.

      • tynana August 22, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

        it’s truly disturbing

  11. susiestories August 20, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    Thanks for such a clear account Bridget… Labelling is definitely a way to be more informed. Saying NO to Monsanto at every turn is the goal… Susie x

    • bridget August 20, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

      I wonder though how much Gm stuff is in our supermarkets…unlabelled…we may be saying yes without knowing it. Caution is needed.

  12. WildReikiShaman September 1, 2013 at 10:50 pm #

    Thank you for writing this. The more people who know what is happening the better. I do not know if this SmartPhone app works in the UK, but I have been telling people about Buycott which enables you to program it for causes that you wish to support (No to GMO, Monsanto, palm oil) so that you can scan a barcode and it will tell you if that product or company is in alignment with your choices. It makes shopping a whole lot easier and nothing gets the attention of a company likes the loss of sales! Let’s put them out of business.

    • bridget September 2, 2013 at 9:03 am #

      Sounds a very useful app. Unfortunately I’ve got a very old mobile which I just use for texting. Agree with you on the power of how we use our money.

    ROTHSCHILDS THROUGH MONSANTO, OBAMA, NATO,EUROPEAN UNION AND MERKEL PUSH FOR NEW WORLD ORDER

    MONSANTO IS PUSHING SECRETELY FOR AN ECONOMIC UNION BETWEEN UNITED STATES AND THE EUROPEAN UNION ( Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP) BUT ALSO FOR Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) AND Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
    ” The TPP is a proposed free trade agreement under negotiation by (as of August 2013) Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Japan,[9] Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership
    http://ronmamita.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/the-tpp-is-by-far-the-largest-and-most-oppressive-economic-treaty-devised-thus-far/

    ” Transatlantic trade deal secretly pushed amidst the NSA scandal

    A major threat to global sovereignty is being pursued in near silence, as the NSA-Snowden story dominates the headlines. The Transatlantic trade partnership between the E.U. and U.S. is edging closer to completion, as a new regulatory regime is being developed to control trade deals throughout the world. ……..
    “While the idea of a Transatlantic Common Market can be seen as far back as 1948 in the global security integration of NATO, it first gained major momentum in April 2007 when President George W. Bush approved the Transatlantic Economic Council.”
    Robinson continues stating: “This council is a permanent international body… (it) seeks to harmonize a large number of complex U.S. and EU regulations in preparation for a free trade zone by 2015.”……….
    The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership or (TTIP) “seeks to expand U.S.-EU trade flows by eliminating tariffs, reducing U.S.-EU differences in product standards and regulations and increasing investment across the Atlantic.With the European Union and the United States representing 47 percent of global GDP and 33 percent of world trade flows, the potential benefits and risks of this trade agreement are significant.”……….
    In addition to being a trade deal, the TTIP, places heavy regulations on climate and food industries, proving this agreement has more to it than meets the eye. The language that was written for the TTIP could open doors for companies like Monsanto, allowing them to push their genetically engineered food production overseas as well as in the United States.
    Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has been a very outspoken critic of the TTIP and the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP, had this to say about the Transatlantic deal:
    “US seed companies that for a decade have been struggling to break the deadlock over the authorization for the cultivation of their [GM] seeds now will be presented with the ultimate opportunity to change the entire process to suit their needs.”
    The TTIP , is also imposing immovable policies on climate and environmental issues. Here is an excerpt from the Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue report explaining how a ‘carbon tax’ scheme could be introduced with this new trade deal:
    “The agreement must facilitate a transition to more sustainable consumption and production patterns, and not water down or impose barriers to measures for promoting them. To advance sustainability and avert catastrophic climate change, the agreement must ensure that trading partners can adopt tax policies, mandatory performance standards, carbon and pollution regulations, schemes for self-generation or “feed-in” electricity tariffs and renewable energy standards without being subject to challenge under the agreement.”
    The picture is becoming clearer as we see the consolidation of sovereignty under both the Transatlantic and Trans-pacific trade deals. The excessive push by global industries to seduce the public into thinking this is in our best interest, quietly forcing us to comply with a new regulatory regime.
    These deals always happen in secret, in dark halls, with a devil’s hand shake. ”

    1) WHO CONTROLS MONSANTO ?

    MONSANTO AND BLACKWATER ARE LINKED WITH BILL GATES.
    ” Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” ” http://english.pravda.ru/business/companies/14-10-2010/115363-machines_of_war_blackwater_monsanto_billgates-0/

    http://naturalsociety.com/monsantos-gmo-seeds-farmer-suicides-every-30-minutes/ http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Monsanto

    BILL GATES IS LINKED WITH THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY AND WITH GOLDMAN SACHS BOTH FRONTS OF THE ROTHSCHILDS.
    http://www.nwrage.org/content/bill-gatess-so-called-philanthropic-foundation-buys-monsanto-and-goldman-sacks-stocks
    ” Gates was made an honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in 2005. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates
    ” Lord JACOB ROTHSCHILD, the behind-the-scenes controller of the Inter-Alpha Group, was a partner at Rothschild at the time he set up the Inter-Alpha Group in 1971, using its resources and then leaving in 1980 to continue his special mission, which includes advising the genocidal British Crown and managing the funds of Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall, to finance his kooky, “green” schemes.” http://unitednationsoffilm.com/?p=1728
    ” Prince Charles already played polo with EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD in his student years and later set up the Interfaith consultations with him. ”
    http://www.gnosticliberationfront.com/people_with_the_endless_bios.htm
    EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD ” In 1989, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II,[2] for whom he serves as a financial adviser. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Robert_de_Rothschild
    THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY HAS THE CONTROL OF THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND.
    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/prince-charles-dumps-rbs-boss-372885
    BUT THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND IS RELATED ALSO WITH THE EDMOND DE ROTHSCHILD OWNED BY BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_de_Rothschild ) AND BY HIS WIFE ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ariane_de_Rothschild ).FOR EXAMPLE THROUGH THE PERSONS OF LAURA SCOLAN AND MARK PHILLIPS,ETC..

    2) ALSO NATO, MERKEL, OBAMA AND EUROPEAN UNION PUSH FOR TRANSATLANTIC DICTATORSHIP.
    http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/natosource/us-ambassador-to-germany-trans-atlantic-cooperation-is-indispensable
    http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/P__Wash/2013/06/19-TTIP-Berlin.html

    ” Talks on the Atlantic portion of the secretive, dictatorial “free trade” policy being pushed by the Obama Administration, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were cancelled yesterday, just after the cancellation of Obama’s Asian trip dealt a major blow to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks.
    Discussions with the EU over the TTIP were supposed to take place in Brussels tomorrow, after a first round of talks was successfully completed in Washington in July. But European Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said yesterday that his U.S. counterpart Michael Froman called to say that Washington would not be able to send its delegation because of the government shutdown.
    And over in Bali, Indonesia, U.S. officials battled to put a positive spin on the country’s trade relations with Asia in the wake of President Barack Obama’s no-show at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit, the Singapore Straits Times reported.
    Both the TTP and the TTIP remove control of the participating country’s economy, placing it in the governing international trade body, similar to how the Brussels-based European Union usurped sovereignty of the captive European nations. Both treaties are treated as secret, but it is known that provisions of the governing body will override individual nations’ laws on critical matters such as health care, trade flows, and government run or assisted industries. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28447

    NATO AND MERKEL ARE CONTROLLED BY DEUTSCHE BANK.
    “Deutsche Bank writes German Finance Ministry’s Greek debt policy, ARD documentary reveals
    The German government’s policy on debt restructuring for Greece is lifted directly from policy papers prepared by the Deutsche Bank, it has emerged.
    The proposal floated at the beginning of June by the German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble for a voluntary bond swap leading to a prolongation of the outstanding Greek sovereign bonds by seven years is based on a document by Deutsche Bank, investigative reporters from Germany’s ARD TV station have revealed.
    http://www.wdr.de/tv/monitor/sendungen/2011/0616/Griechenland.php5
    The Deutsche Bank document called “Proposal for Greek liability management exercise – burden sharing without haircuts” insisted, not surprisingly, on a voluntary participation by banks.
    The revelation that the Finance Ministry in Berlin just takes over the contents of policy papers of Deutsche Bank offers yet more proof that Chancellor Angela Merkel and Wolfgang Schäuble are puppets of the commercial banks.
    Merkel and Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann attended this year’s Bilderberg conference in Switzerland and would have had ample opportunity to discuss ways and means to expropriate yet more money from the tax payers under one pretext or another. ”

    The short-lived marriage, which it is understood Annabelle ended, was turbulent from the outset, with reports that the pair moved with a fast crowd of heavy drinkers and drug users in New York and London.
    Mrs Neilson also made it plain yesterday that neither she nor any memberof her family wanted to have anything to do with Nat Rothschild [son of Jacob Rothschild ] or his family again.

    I think the problem lies with the farmers themselves, being illiterate, doesn’t mean that you believe everything that the seed companies say. Ask any farmer, he’ll say Mahyco seeds are the best, Mahyco is a Monsanto subsidiary, and they produce most of the vegetable seeds that the farmers use. 20 years back, we had mostly native and tastier vegetables, but today you would see that the vegetables have become shinier and bigger, and tasteless, like the ones you would find in an American store. Seeds of cilantro, a common plant used to spice the curries, come in packets with skull-and-bones picture, indicating that it has been treated with poison. With the help of Mahyco, cilantro starts as poisoned seeds, and farmers are “illiterate” to know this?

    Farmers like everyone else chose convenience, and then claim they have been cheated. Most farmers today believe that food grows in ration shops. They government provides almost free rice, sugar, and pigeon pea (dhal), through these shops.

    It has become a mantra, that plants need pesticides, and weedicides cut labor costs.
    And when it rains less, or more, or it becomes windy, or for any other reason, the “farmers” are out in the streets, with nicely printed banners, asking “compensation”. Or may be they want a minimum support price for what they produce. Often these agitations are done by groups of farmers, calling themselves something like “farmers self-respect society”, which makes it all the more amusing.

    Of course, the corruption in India, is no different from anywhere else. Like everywhere else there is a positive side. One person, Subhash Palekar, who introduced zero-budget natural farming, has had big success in getting millions of farmers out of the debt/chemical cycle. His methods have been promoted by a swamiji, Shri Shri Ravi Shankar.

    Dr. Vandana Shiva is more eloquent, and followed elsewhere in the world, because she opposes Monsanto and GM. But she hasn’t had much to say crops bred through radiation induced mutation, which is far less controlled than GM. Hopefully, at some point, in the future, we may find a way to breed-out the traits from GE, or irradiation, and go back to the original native varieties. Decontaminate our seeds!

      Did’nt know anything about radiation induced matated seeds. Will have to research that. I’m a big fan of Vandava Shiva. She is a great ambassador for her fellow Indian people and for her work in highlighting these topics. Sad that so many farmers can’t even read. I have been to India so have seen both sides of the coin first hand. Poor people living under canvas at the rich man’s gate. Thank you so much for your thoughts and insight.

    This came out last August, but I just found it now. I know most of you are informed about Monsanto, but this is still worth reading.

      Thanks for reblog Linne. We must keep spreading the word about these issues.

    Amen sister! As an organic gardener here in the US, one must keep vigilant. US Farm Report is loaded with pro-GMO with the promise of the US “Feeding the World”. What a JOKE! We small ones must continue to do what we can to make small changes where we can. Check out my latest post.
