SHAMEFUL: Global Biotech Cartel gangs up on Africa Press urging them to promote GMO.

VibeGhana, February 7, 2013

SHAMEFUL: AFRICAN LEADERS URGED TO HARNESS BENEFITS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS FOOD SECURITY

The Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology has (OFAB) urged Africa leaders and other relevant institutions to harness the benefits of biotechnologies to UNDER THE GUISE OF promoting food security challenges on the continent...

 SUMMARY: "The media should therefore act as agents of change by working closely with scientists and policy makers to define an African agenda for biotechnology," [Mr. Daniel Otunge, Coordinator of Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology, a programme of the African Agricultural Technology Foundation] said and pointed out that if that was not done, the continent would forever be dependent on food aid from countries that had adopted innovative agricultural technologies to improve food production. Mr. Otunge tasked the Ghanaian media to frame the biotechnology debate in a manner that would improve public negative perceptions toward the technology, citing genetically modified crops as an example."

GM Golden "Fortified" Rice and Other Crops and Vitamin 'A' Overdose

GM Golden "Fortified" Rice and Other Crops and Vitamin 'A' Overdose | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 ▶  Golden rice, a new strain that boosts vitamin A levels and reduces blindness in developing countries, is about to be sown in the Philippines – and is the new battleground crop... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/feb/02/genetic-modification-breakthrough-golden-rice

 

Rice is a staple diet of many of cultures, eaten every meal, every day, and often the only food in impoverished cultures. This "Golden GM Rice" creates a great danger of Vitamin A overdose causing resulting health issues as problematic as the original deficiency. There is no way to control how much Vitamin A will be ingested daily and accumulated in the body over a period of years.

▶  HUMAN GENES ENGINEERED INTO EXPERIMENTAL GMO RICE BEING GROWN IN KANSAS

The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

December 11, 2012 Humanosphere
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, examines the Obama Administration’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a project aimed at boosting food production in the developing world. De Schutter notes that one example of the new initiative’s approach is to have Cargill launch a large-scale project on 40,000 acres of farmland in Mozambique — which may increase crop yields but also potentially displace many poor smallholder farmers.

Opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions.  "Investment" implies a financial return and often control.  "Philanthropy" and "Aid" should not be attached to profits but rather to empower and uplift populations into self independence in line with their regional ecosystems, cultural food and needs without coercion or hidden agendas by those acting as a trojan horse for big foreign business and corporate interests e.g. The Gates Foundation

These organisms will lead to unpredictable interactions with nature, genetic contamination of our crops and threaten the health of our ecosystems.... http://viacampesina.org/en/index.php/main-issues-mainmenu-27/biodiversity-and-genetic-resources-mainmenu-37/1311-convention-on-biodiversity-la-via-campesina-intervention-on-synthetic-biology

The Economic Times, November 25, 2013
▶ NOW "MUTAGENESIS" -  AS OPPOSITION TO GM CROPS GROWS, COMPANIES ARE TURNING TO "MUTANT" SEED BREEDING

Mutagenesis deletes and rearranges hundreds or thousands of genes randomly, spawning mutations that are less precise than GMOs. ... The process, which faces almost no regulation, creates opportunities for companies to grab a bigger share of the $34 billion global commercial seed market. But some scientists say mutant crops are more likely to pose health risks than genetically modified ones.

All breeding techniques can create plants with increased levels of naturally occurring toxins or with proteins known to cause allergic reactions....Reports from the National Academy of Sciences, representing the consensus of experts in the field, say the risk of creating unintended health effects is greater from mutagenesis than any other technique, including genetic modification. ...

 - ▶ GATES FOUNDATION-LED GREEN BIOTECH GMO REVOLUTION PROMOTES FALSE SOLUTIONS TO HUNGER IN AFRICA

Donors controlling the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), promoted/funded by the Gates Foundation, are representing the interests of biotechnology corporations rather than African small farmers, warns Friends of the Earth International on the eve of the annual AGRA Agricultural Green Revolution Forum 2012, Arusha, Tanzania on 26-28 September....

Multi-million dollar investments from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation -a major AGRA donor- into shares in biotech corporations, and revolving doors between donors and these corporations skew the agenda of AGRA in favor of profit-based, corporate-led farming rather than farming benefiting local people and small farmers. [1]

“It is time African Governments stop bowing to corporate donors and instead put farmers in the driver's seat, and focus on funding ecological methods and preserving local seeds.... http://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2012/09/25-0

 "I first heard about a new Stanford "study" downplaying the value of organics when this blog headline cried out from my inbox: "Expensive organic food isn't healthier and no safer than produce grown with pesticides, finds biggest study of its kind."

 What? Does the actual study say this? No, but authors of the study -- "Are Organic Foods Safer or Healthier Than Conventional Alternatives? A Systematic Review" -- surely are responsible for its misinterpretation and more. Their study actually reports that ¨Consumption of organic foods may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria." ... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/09/06-12

 

(Note from @pdjmoo: Just because it's "Stanford" and "Science" does not mean we have to swallow any of their findings whole without question. Thinking independently and critically is crucial now at this time of spin, coercion, private/corporate funding of academic research with vested outcomes) ...

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOM-LINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

▶ THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

Around the early 1900s the European colonial powers built railways to connect the interior of Africa to the ports. They used this infrastructure to export food and minerals out of Africa to feed the industrial revolution in Europe. Over a hundred years later it’s happening all over again. Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.

GMOS AND THE FOOD FIGHT OF OUR LIVES

-▶ Monsanto isn’t the only culprit, of course. Syngenta, Bayer CropScience, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Archer Daniels Midland (better known as ADM) are tweaking hundreds of genomes developed over thousands, even millions of years, crossing roses with pigs and butterflies with worms, not to mention corn with a virulent bacteria.

The question is, how many years can the species homo sapiens continue to eat food that has NOT been “vetted” by Nature over thousands of years of evolution before the effects of our meddling show up in birth defects and other anomalies.

Protesting Gates Foundation’s ties to Monsanto

Via - Community Alliance for Global Justice

Institutions and corporations involved with pushing GMOs into South Africa are now partners of the Gates Foundation and they’re working to spread GMOs through out Africa.

South Africa is the one country amongst Africa’s 54 countries where GMOs have been grown for several years. This is because Monsanto and various western “development” programs including USAID, used South Africa as the entering wedge to the continent—it was the biggest economy, most closely tied in to global capitalism, etc. The African Centre for Biodiversity found, and I quote, “that Monsanto controls 50% of the maize seed market…the biotech giant’s grip on the market is absolute…

change global, act local.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, February 11, 2013 10:24 PM

A number of vital summary here. It is in your interest that you understand the key issues and get to the bottom of what is going on. AND TAKE ACTION.

 

The plan is to control food in such a manner that accessibility to food no more remains your right. That fundamental right has been undermined already; all that remains is a formal announcement. In India, UPA-II under Man Mohan Singh is directly responsible for this situation. That's why I have been consistently writing that this Government should be charged with treason.

 

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, February 12, 2013 2:54 AM

This is a hugely important issue.

 

The outcome of the struggle between commercial and genetically modified seeds on the one hand and the age-old tradition of farmers saving their own seed and exchanging with neighbors on the other concerns us all. 

 

Our future food security depends utterly on the second option winning over the first.

 “WE'RE AT THE BEGINNING OF BEING ABLE TO DESIGN LIFE IN THE WAY THAT WE WANT”

 

 

January 12, 2013 - Science News

▶  THE FACTORY OF LIFE

Quietly, on the top floor of a nondescript commercial building overlooking Boston Harbor, the future is being born...

Ginkgo is, in essence, a 21st century factory of life. The researchers working there specialize in synthetic biology, a field that seeks to build living things from the ground up. After envisioning what they want new organisms to do, Ginkgo biologists actually grow vials full of redesigned cells. “We’re going from the place we used to be, in doing science and studying the natural world, to a place where we’re now going to be able to engineer and manipulate it,”

“This is not just — oh, we’re going to go build something that’s able to make pieces of DNA better

“We’re at the beginning of being able to design life in the way that we want,” says Pamela Silver, a biologist at Harvard Medical School and Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering"

Synthetic biology was born a little more than a decade ago, an offshoot of traditional genetic engineering but distinct in its ambitions, precision and mind-set. Instead of randomly tweaking the genetic blueprints of living organisms... http://www.sciencenews.org/view/feature/id/347263/description/Factory_of_Life

▶  CORNSTALKS EVERYWHERE BUT NOTHING ELSE, NOT EVEN A BEE

Corn farmers champion corn. Anything that might eat corn, hurt corn, bother corn, is killed. Their corn is bred to fight pests. The ground is sprayed. The stalks are sprayed again. We've erased everything else. (AND WE EAT THIS TOXIC FOOD?)

       We need to feed our planet, of course. But we also need the teeny creatures that drive all life on earth. There's something strange about a farm that intentionally creates a biological desert to produce food for one species: us. It's efficient, yes. But it's so efficient that the ants are missing, the bees are missing, and even the birds stay away. Something's not right here. Our cornfields are too quiet....  http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2012/11/29/166156242/cornstalks-everywhere-but-nothing-else-not-even-a-bee

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

July 25, 2013 Miami New Times
▶ HOW MONSANTO IS TERRIFYING THE FARMING WORLD
Monsanto squeezed out competitors by buying the biggest seed companies, spending $12 billion on the splurge. The company bought up the best shelf space and distribution channels. Its braying of global benevolence began to look much more like a naked power grab.
Seed prices began to soar. Since 1996, the cost of soybeans has increased 325 percent. Corn has risen 259 percent. And the price of genetically modified cotton has jumped a stunning 516 percent.
Instead of feeding the world, Monsanto drove prices through the roof — taking the biggest share for itself. A study by Dr. Charles Benbrook at Washington State University found that rapidly increasing seed and pesticide costs were tamping farmers' income, cutting them from any benefits of the new technology.... http://www.miaminewtimes.com/2013-07-25/restaurants/monsanto-gm-crops/full/

Why is Kofi Annan Fronting For Monsanto?  The GMO Assault On Africa | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Kofi Annan has joined with President Obama, Monsanto, AGRA, and the Gates foundation to promote and execute food aid that replaces bags of wheat, rice and corn (agricultural dumping) with bags of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and genetically engineered seeds. The end result will be to starve people in Africa and feed corporations in the US and Europe....under the guise of "sustainability"... http://crossedcrocodiles.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/why-is-kofi-annan-fronting-for-monsanto-the-gmo-assault-on-africa/

African Agriculture: A contrarian view of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa

At it's just ended Africa Green Revolution Forum, held in Tanzania, AGRA pulled out all its publicity and media-influencing guns to press home the contention that they are simply pure-hearted do-gooders motivated by nothing else than what is beneficial to Africa's small scale farmers.

Why then should such a noble-sounding project still be treated with such deep suspicion by many? Is it not almost sacrilege to doubt the good intentions of Bill Gates and Kofi Annan, to accuse them of being marketing hucksters for Monsanto? ,,,

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
This book reveals that the biggest scientific fraud of our time does not involve change in the climate but changes to our food.

 

September 24, 2012 JUST RELEASED: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public

 

This book uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world’s food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products and get them onto our dinner plates...Altered Genes, Twisted Truth gives a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. 

The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became a key accomplice, in furtherance of its explicit agenda "to foster" biotechnology...Consequently, for fifteen years, America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that are not only being sold illegally, but were determined to be unduly hazardous by the FDA's scientific staff...


By the time you've finished reading this story, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented – and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human and environmental health.

THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA. - INFOGRAPH

In the nineteenth century scramble for Africa, European colonial powers took control of the continent’s land, resources and people. Today’s multinational corporations, aided by governments, are taking control over Africa’s food system. http://www.wdm.org.uk/new-scramble-africa-food-monsanto-syngenta-yara/

 


                STOP THE CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF AFRICA'S FOOD

                                     World Development Movement

Under the guise of tackling hunger, initiatives like the G8 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, will help corporations take control over Africa’s land, seeds and markets - at the expense of small farmers. Join our campaign to oppose this twenty-first century corporate scramble for Africa. http://www.wdm.org.uk/food

▶ THE G8 AND THE CORPORATE TAKE OVER OF AFRICAN FARMING. As part of the New Alliance, 10 African governments have signed up to change dozens of laws, policies and regulations to make their countries more attractive to the private sector. Collectively, they have made more than 200 commitments, including the overhaul of seed and tax laws and the setting aside of hundreds of thousands of hectares of land for commercial investors.   http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/interactive/2014/feb/18/g8-fight-future-african-farming-interactive

 

Pambazuka -Voices for Freedom and Justice in Africa

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

▶ THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

Around the early 1900s the European colonial powers built railways to connect the interior of Africa to the ports. They used this infrastructure to export food and minerals out of Africa to feed the industrial revolution in Europe. Over a hundred years later it’s happening all over again. Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.
