The GM crops debate has moved to Africa – and it’s just as noisy

The GM crops debate has moved to Africa – and it’s just as noisy | Indigenous | Scoop.it
It is strange to see an apparently ordinary field surrounded by a seven-foot steel fence topped with barbed wire. The banana trees being grown inside don’t look any different from those that are ubiquitous in the surrounding African countryside. The only thing that marks them apart is the fence, two security guards in smart green-and-black uniforms, and little white markers at the foot of each plant, each with a unique but unintelligible code.

Linda Putzel's insight:

Exiled Jews and Indigenous peoples are neither vermin or savages. We are peoples who strive to exist, who struggle to maintain sovereign identities, cultures and religious practices against those who would deny, exploit, extinguish or assimilate.

Shawn Wright's curator insight, February 2, 2015 1:24 PM

Did you learn that America trained Hitler in your High school history class? No? You did study about the Holocaust and its evil perpetrators right? Well then perhaps its time to ask why you did not learn where this behavior originated and demand change to teach a truthful past before we repeat our American history once again.

 

“Hitler's concept of concentration camps as well as the practicality of genocide owed much, so he claimed, to his studies of English and United States history,” He admired the camps for the Indians "and often  praised to his inner circle the efficiency of America's extermination—by  starvation and uneven combat—of the red savages who could not be tamed by  captivity.”

 

 
Julie Thompson's curator insight, February 3, 2015 6:53 PM

Not only inspired, Hitler took and used the same tactics when handling the Jews. He wanted complete control of resources-does that sound familiar? He wanted to be certain to control by the use of a superior race that followed orders. Oh it was much more to it than inspiration.

Shawn Wright's curator insight, December 22, 2014 10:14 AM

The American Holocaust claimed, between 19 and 50 million Indigenous People but it is seldom noted anywhere in fact, it is not taught in American school textbooks.  It is irony that Hitler studied America’s “Indian policy”, and used it as a model for what he termed “the final solution.”

 

He wasn’t the only one either. It’s well known that members of the National Party government in South Africa studied “the American approach” before they introduced the system of racial apartheid, which lasted from 1948 to 1994. Other fascist regimes, for instance, in South and Central America, studied the same policy.
Noted even less frequently, Canada’s “Aboriginal policy” was also closely examined for its psychological properties. America always took the more ‘wide-open’ approach, for example, by decimating the Buffalo to get rid of a primary food source, by introducing pox blankets, and by giving $1 rewards to settlers in return for scalps of Indigenous Men, women, and children, among many, many other horrendous acts. Canada, on the other hand, was more bureaucratic about it. They used what has been called “the gentleman’s touch”, because instead of extinguishment, Canada sought to “remove the Indian from the Man” and the Women and the Child, through a long-term, and very specific program of internal breakdown and replacement - call it “assimilation”. America had it’s own assimilation program, but Canada was far more technical about it.

 

This is an older film funny how fresh it is though...around minute 23 a forced movement of people is described because John McCain sold Indian land to a corporation......  And so it continues on today.

Manifest Destiny this is just code speak for "god justifies genocide" - perhaps he did but he is not at all the God in the bible.
