  Según reveló Wikileaks la empresa Monsanto y el gobierno de EEUU ‘compraron’ secretamente el permiso de políticos españoles para introducir su  OMG Maíz, que depende de su producto cancerígeno Roundup Ready. Luego presuraron la EU con el lema Si España cae, el resto de Europa va a seguir. “ 

Nota sobre peligros del maiz transgénico

El maiz transgénico en España es de las variedades BT que matan el European Bore Beetle y mejoran algo la cosecha. ( Son de Monsanto, Sygenta y Bayer). Sin embargo son más caros y muchas veces hay que usar insecticida  también, y cada vez más debido a la creciente resistencia de los bichos. Además falta la herbicida, o la tradicional, muy tóxico o la herbicida Roundup (glifosato y el glufosinato de amonio ) según la variedad. 

Hay peligros de efectos imposibles de saber o rectificar a largo termino. Además campos de maiz normal y orgánico quedan contaminados por polinización a mucha distancia, y varios formas de vida beneficiosos quedan eliminados, especialmente mariposas y la fauna aquática. Según los nuevos hallazgos, Roundup, del que se rocían decenas de miles de toneladas al año en todo el mundo, sigue siendo tóxico para el ADN humano incluso si se diluye a un simple 0,02 por ciento , es decir un 99,8 más de lo que se hace cuando se utiliza normalmente para su uso en los cultivos transgénicos.

Sigue la presión politica y comercial para extender el ‘experimento de España’ a otros paises de la UE, argumentando que el uso de plantas genéticamente modificado puede ser algo menos peligroso porque a veces disminuye el cóctel de herbicidas, insecticidas y nitratos que ya está destruyendo la tierra cultivable.20121202_152520

Monsanto and Obama in chemical warfare against Nature

Juan Luis Berterretche ( special ARGENPRESS.info )

Here in South America for over a decade we’ve suffered chemical warfare attacks against our territory by Monsanto and their cronies, with the consent, complicity and promotion of the governments of the USA .In 2010 Obama made a shift in agricultural development policy in the U.S. and  in  foreign markets .

Starving the Poor to Stuff the Rich: The Global Agri-Business Model

A daily ration of bread is now beyond the reach of roughly a billion people on  planet Earth. What’s more, hunger is spreading like a pandemic, making incursions from its traditional strongholds in the global south to towns and cities across depression-hit Southern Europe. Continue reading

Victory! BASF halts EU approval process for genetically modified potatoes

January 29, 2013.  Source: Industry Week, Agence France-Presse

BASF (IW 1000/33), the world’s biggest chemicals company, said Tuesday it has decided to no longer seek European approval of its genetically modified potato products in the face of stiff resistance.gmo-4512

BASF said in a statement it will “discontinue the pursuit of regulatory approvals for the Fortuna, Amadea, and Modena potato projects in Europe because continued investment cannot be justified due to uncertainty in the regulatory environment and threats of field destructions.” Continue reading

picture-15The Media Release states as follows:

System Change, Not Climate Change
The governments of the world are currently meeting at the Global Climate Summit in Doha, but it is clear that the leaders of the wealthier countries of the world, like the United States, are opposing any significant changes that are necessary to reduce carbon emissions and avoid further human suffering and environmental destruction.
Global Climate Summits have been taking place for nearly 20 years now and the global powers have been unwilling to stop the devastating effects of both the burning of fossil fuels and the economic system of Capitalism, which is the root cause of climate change.
Almost every day there is new evidence of glaciers melting, waters rising, intense rains, hurricanes, drought, heat waves and unpredictable weather patterns. 
Look at the damage that Hurricane Sandy did on the east coast.
We all know something is not right. The world leaders will not solve this and the media will not tell us the truth about the seriousness of climate change.

It is clear to us that change will only come about from the grassroots, from a rejection of the system of Capitalism and a movement towards climate justice. 
We hung two banners – There Is No Planet B – to illustrate the urgency of the problem, and – Burn the Rich, Not Fossil Fuels – to name the culprits for our current climate predicament.

Why the Eurostrike?

By Vincent Navarro

..Due to their history of dictators the 1% in South Europe have been able to coerce, swindle, supertax, deprive and overwork us, while stashing billions of our money in tax havens…

The ruling Conservative and liberal parties, both in Spain and in most European Union countries, including the Eurozone, are implementing policies that result in: 1) labour reforms that reduce wages and increase unemployment, 2) the shrinking of the labour force, 3) reduction of social protection, 4) social spending cuts, 5) the privatization of public services and the welfare state, 6 ) the reduction of labour and social rights; 7) cuts to, and privatization  of state pensions, and 8) the weakening of collective bargaining and unions.

Standoff at Bankia

In #globalrevolution, Sol on 26 October 2012 at 19:24

Dear people,….  After Bankia’s refusal to negotiate, the campers took action. At one o’ clock in the afternoon they occupied the Bankia franchise in Alcalà 1, at the corner of Puerta del Sol.

Police went in after them and sealed off the entrance against sympathisers and press who assembled outside.

The occupiers demanded an end to the evictions, and the right to for those at risk of eviction to stay in their houses, paying a social rent. Continue reading

EU law to protect victims of crime due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression

Today the European Parliament agreed on a new Directive on the rights guaranteed to victims of crime in the EU. Notably, it provides specific assistance and protection to people who suffered crime because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

The Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime now says victims should receive appropriate assistance and protection. Continue reading

17 a 24 Sept..Semana Mundial de acciones contra MONSANTO

Las empresas y los políticos nos envenenan poco a poco. -

Hace decadas que lo sabemos, pero el poder y dinero del Capitalismo ha hecho que se lo ignora..La hérbicida estrella de Monsanto, el Roundup, causa el cancer, y también  los cultivos tratados con ella, sobre todo el maíz transgénico. España es casi el unico país de la EU que deja plantar el maíz transgénico, así que probablemente el ganado y nosotros mismos se enferman ya. Continue reading
