Australian educator, author and co-inventor of Permaculture, Bruce Charles ‘Bill’ Mollison, died on the 24 September 2016 in Sisters Creek, Tasmania. He has been praised across the world for his visionary work, and left behind a global network of ‘peaceful warriors’ in over 100 countries working tirelessly to fulfill his ambition to build harmony between humanity and Mother Earth.

The Tasmanian rainforests gave him the founding structure for his life’s passion, Permaculture: the idea that we could consciously design sustainable systems which enabled human beings to live within their means and for all wildlife to flourish with us.

Born 1928 in the Bass Strait fishing village of Stanley, Tasmania, Bill’s life story included backwoodsman, academic, storyteller, lady’s man, and to many just ‘Uncle Bill’, doing all these things par excellence.

Bill was co-founder, with David Holmgren, of the permaculture movement – a worldwide network of remarkable resilience, with organisations now operating in 126 countries and projects in at least 140, inspiring individuals and communities to take initiatives in fields as diverse as food production, building design, community economics and community development.

exposed: The GMO industry Began with a Cover-up of Mass Murder for Profit

The very first GE product, a dietary supplement, poisoned thousands of people of which dozens died. The first GE food, the ‘Flavr Savr’ tomato, caused stomach lesions. But a long campaign of concealment and deception by regulators and corporate scientists re-engineered the truth to present GMOs as so safe they did not even need to be tested for safety.

The first ingestible GE product, L-typtophan, derived from GMO bacteria.contained impurities that killed dozens of Americans and seriously sickened thousands, permanently disabling many of them.

Biologists say Monsanto’s glyphosate is devastating wildlife; deer populations down 50 percent

In Europe millions have come out against Monsanto’s top selling, cancer causing, herbicide Roundup, forcing the pro-business European Commission  to ban it, only to then slip in a clause giving it 2 years more at least. But several countries and hundreds of Cities and Local Councils have already prohibited glyphosate spraying and now the movement has spread to Canada with the focus that wildlife is also being decimated.

Canada’s New Brunswick province has lately become a center of controversy regarding the use of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and the latest revelations involve the decline of deer populations due to widespread spraying of glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup.stop Glyphosate spraying NOW

Environmentalist groups are calling for a ban on the use of glyphosate for “forest management” purposes, after it was revealed that deer populations in the province have been reduced by half since 2007.

Groups such as Greenpeace and “Stop Spraying New Brunswick” are also demanding a review of “for industry and by industry” provincial forest management strategies, which appear to be largely focused on creating more timber for pulp mills, with little regard for the environment or taxpayers who are footing the bill for the spraying – whether they like it or not.

Non-GM crops will feed the world; GMOs decrease yield, enslave farmers and destroy the environment

 

Monsanto's Roundup is a potent poison which can only be used GMO crops that are resistant, causing ba worldwide massacre that illustrates the dangers of GMO foods.

In fact, observations in Africa have found that smallholders in South Africa are actually burdened by genetically modified maize, which was forced on them through government program interventions starting in 2001. A paper in the South African Journal of Science by researchers Klara Fischer, Johnnie van den Berg and Charles Mutengwa found that South African smallholders would benefit more from a diverse selection of seed that is suitable to various growing conditions and changing pest pressures.

GMO Industry abuses Gullible Celebs to launch false ”Golden Rice Blocked by Greens” campaign

It’s easy to demonstrate (see below) that this is  a campaign of lies.  ‘Golden Rice’ has been a total flop, still doesn’t exist and so hasn’t even been presented for legalisation, never mind blocked.GMO-Rice_Filipinos-oppose_735_350_2-735x350But the damage is done.. GMO big money allies with the right wing popular media and gullible celebs to broadcast the populist message, repeated forever in the media and in homes and bars worldwide ..that ‘stupid reactionary greens are causing millions of deaths by blocking GMO ‘miracle rice’.

By the same token if anti-GMO activists had the same money and influence they could send a true and proven  message.. That by allowing and promoting GMO crops designed to work with the ‘probably carcinogenic’ glyphosate weedkiller the industry is profiting from a crime against humanity and nature, no less than a huge and continuing massacre worldwide, and has been knowingly doing so for decades! .

Pro-GMO campaign exploits Nobel laureates to attack Greenpeace and fool the people.

Golden Rice Dreams

Greenpeace is being criticized for blocking GMO golden rice – even though the crop is years away from being ready, reports Claire Robinson

A new pro-GMO propaganda campaign has been launched in which, in the words of a Washington Post article, “more then 100 Nobel laureates have signed a letter urging Greenpeace to end its opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

EU dictators Give Green Light to Monsanto: maiming and torturing millions of us to death.

Just days after EU States voted 3 times not to extend Monsanto’s ‘Cancer Herbicide’ license the European Commission went ahead anyway and gave them 18 months more (and that’s for starters). And that despite an unprecedented and  gigantic citizens mobilization.glyphosate-poison-so-why-in-food

Glyphosate poisoning from crop spraying has led to an epidemic of toxicity diseases, cancers and deformities in Argentina


And this was the 1st big EU decision since Brexit, which was itself partly a protest against the undemocratic EU commission. 

So why the hell did they do this?   Because they have suffered a takeover by corporate capitalism, lots of lobbies and big money sloshing around and entering their untraceable offshore accounts?.. Perhaps also by authorizing continued mass poisoning the EU Bureaucrats assert their power, even over the heads of the member states who voted 3 times against it?..

monsanto-causes-cancer

But there must be another reason, behind this decision overruling national governments.. there must be a more powerful bully…

… of course, because  Monsanto is a top US moneyspinner, because the EU is under direct economic and political threats from their US masters who have ruled Europe by these methods since the 2nd World War. (Another current example could be the crippling trade war with Russia which the EU implements although hardly anyone in Europe believes in it, forced by the US to do this because it supports their military expansionism).

The Companies would have had 6 months to withdraw sales of Roundup, now they have 18 months.. and with no detail of a plan to wind down…no withdrawal timetables, no push to seek alternatives or reorganise.. no no.. THIS IS A STRAIGHT DECISION TO LET MONSANTO CONTINUE.. after the 18 months suitable excuses will be found to continue indefinitely, with some more falsified reports and studies,  if the public haven’t already shut up by then and realised ( as in Greece and Spain) that mass democratic protest is now useless.  I mean, what’s the point? if even 3 votes against by the Heads of States are ignored!!

The above arguments can equally be applied to the ongoing US touted TTIP ‘free trade’ corporate takeover of Europe.

The way to stop Roundup, and to stop TTIP may be by boycotts and ‘Direct Action’, when all else fails, with the current French popular uprising well capable of leading the way. see here

Zika Corporate Fraud promoting Panic, Toxic Sprays, Media hype, GMOs, and sabotaging Brazil

zika-virus (1)
The  Zika virus has been cynically blown into A MASSIVE CAMPAIGN OF LIES to justify BILLIONS given to criminal corrupt Chemical and Vaccine companies. The latest headlines  refer to two new studies “clinching” the Zika-microcephaly connection. However, the use of these studies is nothing more than cruel propaganda to justify the greed and hype. It’s possible that having the harmless Zika virus when pregnant is ONE FACTOR in a very few cases of the rare microcephaly condition. But there are hundreds of other possible factors!
Next step will be to sell everyone an expensive Vaccine.

Consider the following  10 points , and the ‘Op against Brazil’ story below it

#1) ‘The microcephaly cases in Brazil were caused by larvicide chemicals, not by zika’

A group of doctors from South America are now saying the brain deformations the world is witnessing are caused by the mass fumigation of low-income Brazilian people with a chemical larvicide, not by mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus.
