The Obama people ask us all to express our "vision" at http://www.change.gov/page/s/yourvision.

Meanwhile Obama is putting together a literal nightmare for the American people by considering appointing Tom Vilsack to head the USDA.  Vilsack is Monsanto' s guy.

Watch agriculture - it's where your lives are being undone ... and in such banal ways, GE-seed by GE-seed, state law by state law, economic rights by constitutional rights by human rights.  

A non-nightmarish vision begins with getting rid of the horror of genetic engineering.

Genetic Engineering causes:

FARMERS BONDAGE TO BIOTECH CORPORATIONS turning farmers into tenant farmers on their own land. 


LOSS OF HUMAN CONTROL OF SEEDS (life itself) to multinational corporations. 
   

*Ten companies now control more than two-thirds of global proprietary seed sales. 
   

*Ten companies now control almost 90% of agrochemical sales worldwide. 
   

*Ten companies now account for three-quarters of industry revenues.

DANGER TO HUMAN HEALTH 
   GE-crops already linked to diabetes, allergies, infertility.

PRIVATIZING OF NATURE ITSELF through DNA 

click here

PROFOUND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION - almost inexpressible - in destroying millennia of OPEN access to all natural substances for human beings and the connection between farmers and natural growth. 

click here

THREAT TO DEMOCRACY in laws being putting in place to preempt communities and farmers from rejecting GE-crops. 

click here

THREAT TO FOOD SECURITY because GE-crops displace local, sustainable agriculture which is the most certain protection for access to food in emergencies. 

click here

THE "SOWING OF GLOBAL WARMING" with each seed because they are designed to require huge amounts of petroleum based pesticides. 

click here

THREAT TO FARMERS through the massive monopolistic powers of a few corporations "owning" our most crops and raising prices at will as Monsanto just did on seed corn - during a world food crisis and after the devastating floods in the Midwest - knowing it had an utterly captive market. 

click here

THREAT TO THE POOR - and all people - AROUND THE WORLD because world food prices are being manipulated through biotech agribusiness owners of the major world commodities.

The choice of Tom Vilsack would be a betrayal of all that Obama says he represents - most especially two groups, small farmers who are being destroyed by lawsuits and crushing prices for seeds, and black people who as the poorest of the poor are on the receiving end of the worst food in this country.

Vilsack is closely connected to Monsanto 

click here

which is pushing laws state to state to limit labeling of all GE-products and crops and animals, 

click here

as well as pushing laws to preempt democratic control of communities to stop GE-crops from being planted, 

click here

and is now picking off seed cleaners state to state 

click here

who are the last bulwark against complete and total monopoly by Monsanto of all corn and soy seeds in the Midwest.

Obama could not make a more terrible move for our democracy, our land, our farmers, our people.

Excuse me, but what the hell is he thinking?  

Does corruption begin now?

If you are sick of the multiple threats of genetic engineering and feel its time that people around the world get heard on how much we oppose it and corporate control of seeds - the source of all food and health substances - join FarmOn, which aims to create a huge list to our fund legal defense groups at the level they need to go up against multinationals on more than chump change.  http://groups.google.com/group/farmon

Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been (more...)
