Occupy Monsanto: Official GMO Foods MUST DIE Thread
« on: February 29, 2012, 03:17:51 AM »
Your daily conspiracy theory, although this article would seem to represent some decent research and connecting of dots than sheer speculation. And it helps us understand why the Gates Foundation underwrote the Arctic seed vault in Norway . . .

Like some roundup with that Wal-Mart corn?


Bill Gates, Monsanto, and eugenics: How one of the world's wealthiest men is actively promoting a corporate takeover of global agriculture

Read it here at http://www.naturalnews.com/035105_Bill_Gates_Monsanto_eugenics.html       
   
(NaturalNews) After it was exposed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the philanthropic brainchild of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010 valued at more than $23 million, it became abundantly clear that this so-called benevolent charity is up to something other than eradicating disease and feeding the world's poor (http://www.guardian.co.uk). It turns out that the Gates family legacy has long been one of trying to dominate and control the world's systems, including in the areas of technology, medicine, and now agriculture.

The Gates Foundation, aka the tax-exempt Gates Family Trust, is currently in the process of spending billions of dollars in the name of humanitarianism to establish a global food monopoly dominated by genetically-modified (GM) crops and seeds. And based on the Gates family's history of involvement in world affairs, it appears that one of its main goals besides simply establishing corporate control of the world's food supply is to reduce the world's population by a significant amount in the process.

William H. Gates Sr., former head of eugenics group Planned Parenthood

Bill Gates' father, William H. Gates Sr., has long been involved with the eugenics group Planned Parenthood, a rebranded organization birthed out of the American Eugenics Society. In a 2003 interview with PBS' Bill Moyers, Bill Gates admitted that his father used to be the head of Planned Parenthood, which was founded on the concept that most human beings are just "reckless breeders" and "human weeds" in need of culling (http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript_gates.html).

Gates also admitted during the interview that his family's involvement in reproductive issues throughout the years has been extensive, referencing his own prior adherence to the beliefs of eugenicist Thomas Robert Malthus, who believed that populations of the world need to be controlled through reproductive restrictions. Though Gates claims he now holds a different view, it appears as though his foundation's initiatives are just a modified Malthusian approach that much more discreetly reduces populations through vaccines and GMOs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Robert_Malthus).

Gates Foundation has invested heavily in converting Asian, African agricultural systems to GMOs

William Gates Sr.'s association with Planned Parenthood and continued influence in the realm of "population and reproductive health" is significant because Gates Sr. is co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (http://www.gatesfoundation.org/leadership/Pages/william-gates-sr.aspx). This long-time eugenicist "guides the vision and strategic direction" of the Gates Foundation, which is currently heavily focused on forcing GMOs on Africa via its financing of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).

The Gates Foundation has admittedly given at least $264.5 million in grant commitments to AGRA (www.gatesfoundation.org/about/Documents/BMGFFactSheet.pdf), and also reportedly hired Dr. Robert Horsch, a former Monsanto executive for 25 years who developed Roundup, to head up AGRA back in 2006. According to a report published in La Via Campesina back in 2010, 70 percent of AGRA's grantees in Kenya work directly with Monsanto, and nearly 80 percent of the Gates Foundation funding is devoted to biotechnology (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_21606.cfm).

The same report explains that the Gates Foundation pledged $880 million in April 2010 to create the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP), which is a heavy promoter of GMOs. GAFSP, of course, was responsible for providing $35 million in "aid" to earthquake-shattered Haiti to be used for implementing GMO agricultural systems and technologies.

Back in 2003, the Gates Foundation invested $25 million in "GM (genetically modified) research to develop vitamin and protein-enriched seeds for the world's poor," a move that many international charities and farmers groups vehemently opposed (http://healthfreedoms.org). And in 2008, the Gates Foundation awarded $26.8 million to Cornell University to research GM wheat, which is the next major food crop in the crosshairs of Monsanto's GM food crop pipeline (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_21606.cfm).

If you control agriculture, you control the populations of the world

The Gates Foundation's ties with Monsanto and corporate agriculture in general speak volumes about its real agenda, which is to create a monopolistic system of world control in every area of human life. Vaccines, pharmaceuticals, GMOs, reproductive control, weather manipulation, global warming -- these and many other points of entry are the means by which the Gates Foundation is making great strides to control the world by pretending to help improve and save it.

Rather than promote real food sovereignty and address the underlying political and economic issues that breed poverty, Gates and Co. has instead embraced the promotion of corporately-owned and controlled agriculture and medicine paradigms that will only further enslave the world's most impoverished. It is abundantly evident that GMOs have ravished already-impoverished people groups by destroying their native agricultural systems, as has been seen in India (http://www.naturalnews.com/030913_Monsanto_suicides.html).

Some may say Gates' endeavors are all about the money, while others may say they are about power and control. Perhaps it is a combination of both, where Gates is still in the business of promoting his own commercial investments, which includes buying shares in Monsanto while simultaneously investing in programs to promote Monsanto.

Whatever the case may be, there is simply no denying that Gates now has a direct interest in seeing Monsanto succeed in spreading GMOs around the world. And since Gates is openly facilitating Monsanto's growth into new markets through his "humanitarian" efforts, it is clear that the Gates family is in bed with Monsanto.

"Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really "donating" anything, but instead of paying taxes to state coffers, he invests his profits in where it is favorable to him economically, including propaganda from their supposed good intentions," wrote Silvia Ribeiro in the Mexican news source La Jornada back in 2010.

"On the contrary, their 'donations' finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world ... Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the 'Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa' (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM)."

I am pulling out ALL the stops trying to get in touch with the OCCUPY MONSANTO people.

I have asked all the Admins to contact anyone they know who might have some contact with this group.  I will add to that any Diners please contact everyone you know in Permaculture and in the Doom Blogosphere to try to get in contact with Occupy Monsanto.

On a Tech Note, Haniel, check out the Video I dropped on here from the Video-Net Arm of this group.  WE NEED THIS TECHNOLOGY on the Diner.  If they can do it, we can do it.  I am trying to contact Mike Adams for hints and advice, but pretty sure you can figure this out also.

I will not accept the Diner being Out-Techied by anyone else.  I hope the Database Cavalry from California feels likewise.

Occupy Monsanto Diner Blog-a-thon
« Reply #5 on: August 27, 2013, 04:27:45 AM »
Beginning Friday, I would like the Diner Native Bloggers to write articles reflecting their perspectives on MONSANTO, GMO Foods and Food Security issues. Our last Blog-a-thon was for Turtle Island and Eustace Conway, this one I hope to be even bigger and better than that one.

I produced a Kickoff Coming Attractions I Spy Doom episode today which I will publish on Friday to Kick Off this Blog-a-thon.  I am hoping to have at least one MONSANTO related Blog each day from Friday until a Culminating Diner Round Table Vidcast on Sunday together with some of our Cross Posting Blogger friends.

This I Spy Doom video features my latest new Technical Innovation, SUV-CAM!  :icon_mrgreen:

I am particularly hopeful for Monsanto related articles from Surly, WHD, LD, GM, Agelbert, Roamer, Monsta, Haniel and perhaps a Newzy Joe Compilation of Storiez from around the Web related to Monsanto.  If everyone contributes 1 article on this topic, we can cover the week from Sat to Sat after my Kickoff I Spy Doom video teaser, to lead into the Premier Vidcast on the Diner on Sunday Sept 8th.

Get writing Diner Bloggers!  Submit in PM to me or Draft it on WP if you know how to do that.  Or submit as a Word Doc via email.

I'm in. Though we need to do something to assure all the articles aren't basically the same. That, and the whole project will be swamped, if Obama with the big cock of the Military/Industrial/Banking juggernaut up his ass is bombing Syria, and Assad is retaliating.

How do we do that?  I mean make sure they aren't all the same?  I don't do reporting really.  I do opinion pieces gonzo style...that's about the extent of my blogging.

Pick a subtopic to focus on perhaps.  Or we could pick an order and after the first person writes one, he/she sends it to next one down the line.

I don't know RE...aren't we sort of preachin' to the choir about Monsanto?  I mean everybody on the Diner knows that Monsanto is the apex of Evil in our civilization.  WTF are we gonna talk about other then that?  I mean without doing research that is.  Like Monsanto and the link to cancer what with GMO's and all.  Or the legal aspects involved with them...like if you eat some monsanto food (from grocery store) and shit it out and then it's not a terminator seed and it actually grows and bears fruit...you're breaking the law at that point due to patenting law.  Or the fact that most American's have no clue and don't care.

Lots of good topics right there LD!  There is also the Suicides of all the Indian Farmers unable to make a living anymore, the vulnerability of cloned organisms to disease blights, the economic control of a population dependent on large food corporations...endless really.

Preaching to the Choir?  Remember, people who actually participate inside the Diner are just a small fraction of the Lurkers which is a smaller fraction of the Blog Readers.

The purpose of the Blog-a-thon is to help spread the word about the September 17th demonstrations.  Surly could talk about its connection to OWS and the Move to Amend, since Monsanto is of course one of those Corporate Persons.

I nominate you to write the first article so no worries about duplicating anyone else's stuff.  LOL.

Monsanto is a criminal and the officers of the company all belong in the slammer, no doubt about it.

While not trying to detract from the crime of these pigs and what they have taken it upon themselves to do without consent,approval , or discussion;  is Orkin man material in my view.

With all respect to you RE and your difficult task of admin, I think the protest turns out to be ill timed.  The events in Syria and strong indications of a US missile attack on Thursday place this very important topic in the back burner for now.  Unfortunate occurrence, but not a major concern when weighed against a mid east attack in my opinion.

The folks organizing the Protests could not have known even 2 weeks ago Syria would Explode.

In the end, the Protests may be larger because it will combine Anti-War people with Anti-Monsanto people.

I realize that, which is why I referred to it as unfortunate, perhaps bad luck would have been a better term.
