Dear Indian Farmers:

indiaUNI am writing to you because your government is trying to fool you.   It was announced that India is suing Monsanto for 'biopiracy'.  They want you to believe that their legal action will stop Monsanto, but it is a trick by your government and the United Nations.  The Environment Support Group (ESG) who initiated the action has close ties to the United Nations- be careful of who you trust.

This case is about Bt Brinjal, a genetically engineered form of eggplant.  Because of your massive outrage over its introduction into the market last year, the Minister of Environment was forced to temporarily ban it from commercial cultivation until the safety issues are resolved.  Bt Brinjal is dangerous.  It was shown to cause liver damage, immune suppression and reproductive disorders when studied in rats.



Your Prime Minister is currently under pressure to commercialize Bt Brinjal and bring it to market.  The ban is only temporary.

Because brinjal is a perennial plant that lives longer than 2 years, it is very vulnerable to contamination.  This means that if Bt Brinjal is allowed to be cultivated, over time, your natural brinjal will become polluted with the Bt Brinjal genes.  Your farms are at grave risk for contamination if the ban against Bt Brinjal is lifted, or if Bt Brinjal is being planted right now in test fields.

Stopping the planting of Bt Brinjal to prevent contamination of farmland is very important because the crop has been shown to be harmful to health in animal studies.

BIOPIRACY

brinjal_2The 'biopiracy' case is weak.  A news report defined biopiracy as stealing indigenous plants and trying to make genetically engineered versions without giving any compensation to the local people or the nation from where it originated.

Suing for biopiracy seems pointless because even if the exact origin of the plant could be proven, who really OWNS a plant that has been around since ancient times?  And who would be compensated?  The government that betrays the public?

Biopiracy means nothing unless a product is commercialized and brought to market.  If Monsanto never brings Bt Brinjal to market, there will be no profits for compensation.  The intention of this case seems to be to bring Bt Brinjal to the commercial market and then compensate some unnamed party.

Biopiracy seeks compensation through profit sharing.  What does a little money as compensation mean compared to the result of a ruined staple crop and serious health issues?

This case appears to be a way to diffuse public outrage.

India is powerful.  Historically, India knows how to organize the masses to oppose tyranny.  India successfully stopped the commercialization of Bt Brinjal last year when the Minister of Environment banned Bt Brinjal.  India must rise up again.  It appears that the Minister of Environment and your Prime Minister have the power to stop Bt Brinjal.

FALSE BIOPIRACY LAWSUIT

Monsanto-SkullAccording to this legal evaluation of the case, India vs Monsanto, there is no standing for this case in a Court of Law.

The reason for this is because Bt Brinjal was developed by a collaboration between Mahyco, an Indian company that is 26% owned by Monsanto, and other partners as a RESEARCH project.  Only cases concerning COMMERCIALIZATION may be heard in a Court of Law.  Obviously, Mahyco/Monsanto intended to commercialize Bt Brinjal as they tried to bring it to market, but the collaboration agreement states that Bt Brinjal was developed for research purposes.  In other words, the collaboration contract was misleading in order to keep this out of court.

The UN allied Environment Support Group alleges that Mahyco/Monsanto & partners failed to get research clearance for the use of native Indian brinjal from the National, State and Local Biodiversity Authorities.  These allegations are weak because:

1.  There was implied approval of the Mahyco/Monsanto collaboration project by the national government, so it may be argued that national approval was granted.

2.  Because the Mahyco/Monsanto project was stated to be a research project focusing on technology transfer instead of commercial goals, approval by the State may be waived and it will be kept out of court.

3.  The National Biodiversity and State Biodiversity Authorities should have consulted with the Local Biodiversity Boards, so Mahyco/Monsanto are off the hook for this charge.

THE UNITED NATIONS TRAP

un2The National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), an agency of your national government, is bringing the legal action to determine whether Biological Diversity Act, a national Indian law, was violated by the national and state governments.  This amounts to the government investigating itself. 

India's NBA and the Biological Diversity Act were created after India signed the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, which is a treaty designed to kill national independence, and to steal land and resources.  The treaty is part of the United Nation's Agenda 21 Sustainable Development global plot to replace national Indian law with the UN's international laws.

In order to stop Monsanto, you must understand the big picture and the UN is at the top.  The UN unfairly manipulates global trade markets, including food, through the UN World Trade Organization using treaties.  The intent of the UN is to control the world's food supply. 

The UN uses financial aid to countries to buy off politicians.  The people rarely receive any benefits from the financial aid.  The United States is the largest financier of the UN.  The UN aims to rule the globe as the seat of One World Government.

Beware of all parties and individuals who have ties to the UN- this includes the Environment Support Group.

Most of the information presented in this video comes out of an 1100 page book, the UN Global Biodiversity Assessment report that is the cornerstone of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity treaty that India is following.  Please note that this book advocates depopulating the world by 85%.


SOLUTIONS

against-bt-brinjalThe ultimate goal is to remove India from its membership in the UN, canceling all UN treaties.  A full understanding of of UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development's goals of depopulation and total control is necessary to get rid of bad UN policies in your national, state and local governments.  This may be accomplished through massive public awareness and action.

It is also important to understand controlled opposition, like organizations who are pretending to help you but are really mis-directing you toward ineffective action.  Many environmental groups that do this have ties to the UN.

Individually, farmers can band together to reject genetically engineered crops and to educate each other.  Farmers may pressure their local governments to ban genetically engineered crops. 

The state governments have tremendous power!  The State of Uttarakhand banned Bt Brinjal BEFORE the national government took action!

The seats of power in your national government appear to be the Minister of Environment and the Prime Minister.  New laws requiring proof of safety of genetically engineered crops would be a good first step.

Farmers who sign contracts with Monsanto or other engineered seed companies are trapped by the contract- especially if it is a blank piece of paper.  Please reject these contracts.

EFFECTIVE ACTION

I am deeply saddened that many thousands of farmers who committed suicide after their farms were damaged due to planting Monsanto crops.

A few months ago, it was reported that some Indian farmers beat a Monsanto representative when he denied that there were problems with the failed crops.  The anger and despair you feel can be used constructively to educate your fellow farmers about the dangers of planting genetically engineered crops:

1.  Reject contracts and buying genetically engineered seeds- it is a trap.
2.  Remember that subsidies come with obligations.
3.  Share the information about the health dangers of genetically engineered crops.
4.  Tell other farmers about the contamination threat to nearby fields- especially for Bt Brinjal.

India has a big advantage in getting rid of genetically engineered crops because there is a large public awareness of the problem.  Massive public protest against Bt Brinjal last year resulted in a temporary ban.  The pressure must continue to ban ALL genetically engineered crops permanently at every level of government (local, state and national, but especially the state government).

From your friend in freedom and health,

Cassandra Anderson

So, the insane killing rage against all other peoples by the chosen people continues, Monsanto is owned by such people. I am forwarding this to http://www.amma.org/greenfriends/

Not only should Wall Street be picketed, so should the shameful UN. All nations need to pull out from this organization. Obama is a buffoon that allows the US to be a part of it. These are other human beings attempting to do the will of those so-called elite that wants control over the entire world. War is coming and where do they think that they can run to hide themselves from the wrath to come.

The eggplant is in the deadly nightshade family, the atropa belladonna. Others in this group are potato, cucumber, zuchini and tomato.

Glyco-alkaloids in these CAUSE arthritis. (found by the US Agric. Dept. 1970s).

So, if you wish to discuss health, include this fact.

Genetically modified plants seem to concentrate on including insecticides, herbicides, drugs, and/or also produce sterile seeds, this requiring seed to be purchased from the G.M. company as discussed in the article.

When the scientists improve protein, vitamin and nutrient content, and then test thoroughly, and truthfully, then one can accept GM. That will be in the far distant future when MONEY no longer controls all life.

The answer to your health is not only to avoid GM, but to get up to date on food science. (1970s data here)!!

This is much the same as with soy. Many complain that soys is now GM. However, all unfermented soy, whether GM or not is extremey toxic to man and beast.

GM foods are designed so that the farmer cannot use the seeds coming out of his/her crops to plant for the next season. This leaves world farmers at the mercy of a large corporation. We already know that all corporations are in business for the money, so at the expense of the entire worlds population, no corporation should be allowed to control the natural ways foods have been grown since man first planted his own food sources. Look up the UN Agenda 21 and you will find out that these things are being done to sharply do away with 6 1/2 billion people to a so-called manageable 500 million. What happens should there be something that goes wrong with these GM foods that produce no viable seeds? The worlds population starves to death by the billions. Doesn't that sound like something out of the book of Revelations! It does not have to be nuclear wars for those billions to die off, but it does say that there will be famine. It is already written that these things will happen. So be ready.

Cassandra Anderson, what a beautiful name. Cassandra was cursed with the gift of prophecy and to be ignored. Will we support the curse or will we grow some guts and stand up to the hellish elite? Will we continue to allow others to perform our freedom-work and suffer 85% mortality as a result and complain about "evil"? I am optimistic that the Law works, but it will Not work for life if we allow the elites to continue to set up this hideous trap of controlling food with Monsanto leaders at the top of FDA right now! Anybody else notice the recent flurry of attacks on small, organic farmers here in the USA? Clean the FDA out of all Monsanto-oid lobbyists and past corporate officers NOW!

In response to Thomas T about improving protein, vitamin and nutrient content thru genetic engineering (GE):

The objective of GE crops has always been to control the food supply (read F. William Engdahl's book "Seeds of Destruction" for details). Therefore, the outlook for safety and honesty in producing GE food is bleak.

The other problem is that even if GE crops did not have drugs, pesticides and herbicides bred into them, there is still the problem of mismatched DNA strands. When scientists force DNA strands from 2 different life forms together that don't match, one is longer and that piece of DNA can break off and re-combine in unknown ways.

The problem is food control and bad distribution, not that crops lack sufficient vitamins (in a varied diet). For example, hemp can provide a rich protein source, yet we are not allowed to grow it. And the crackdown on small and independent farms is obscene.

Cassandra? then you are really going to like me because I am sueing Iowa with Carl Olsen's help to legalize hemp in Iowa. I blasted Iowa Gov Terry Bransted last Feb telling him and the Ag Sec in Ames that corn had tripled in cost and we had no business putting food in our cars! We need to be using the good soil for food and the marginal soil for the hemp to put Hemp into the Iowa ethanol plants like Henry Ford envisioned we would. Cannabis steel is 3x harder than iron! The prototype Model T was made out of pot and powered by pot! It was totally recycleable and had no carbon foot print to speak of. We do not need to destroy our fed! We need to get it to obey our safety and food needs and run these invaders off from there. Federal criminals like harry the rat anslinger invaded our government and viruslike generated reefermadness filth we suffer from clear to this day. We can trust the law if we control it firmly! India is right about mungsandblow! They have gotten out of their box!

Instead of suing Monsanto why India do not close doors for that imoral corporation -- even if they come trying to buy everybody, they do need to say NO!
