India’s Monsanto Protection Act - Dr. Vandana Shiva - Biotech Industry Trickery

India’s Monsanto Protection Act - Dr. Vandana Shiva - Biotech Industry Trickery | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

May 3, 2013 - DR. VANDANA SHIVA

Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill 2013 By Dr Vandana Shiva

 

Immediately after the then Minister of environment Jairam Ramesh announced a moratorium on BT Brinjal, a Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) suddenly emerged . BRAI could not be passed in 2010 and 2011 because of objections by citizens and parliament, but it has surfaced again as a 2013 Bill.

While it is presented as a Biotechnology Regulation Act, it is in fact a Biotechnology Deregulation Act, designed to dismantle the existing Biosafety regulation. That is why ,in the area of Food and Agriculture it can be called India’s Monsanto Protection Act that gives corporations like Monsanto immunity by freeing them of courts and democratic control under our federal structure, just like the US Monsanto Protection Act through which Monsanto sneaked in section 735 under the HR 993 Act to give itself immunity.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, July 17, 6:38 PM
"Climate change poses major threats to both natural and managed systems of the UK and worldwide," said Professor Bardgett. "Not only does it pose significant risks to our natural capital, including terrestrial, marine, freshwater and coastal ecosystems, but also it threatens our ability to produce food, for example due to increased incidence of pests and diseases, and the erosion of our soils." - 
The key threats:
- Heatwaves 
- Water shortages 
- Floods and coastal erosion 
- Farmland expected to be driven down by degraded soil and water shortages 
- Food prices to be driven up 
- Diseases and pests
