Bill gates farmland 2000x900

We are currently seeing an acceleration of the corporate consolidation of the entire global agrifood chain. The high-tech/data conglomerates, including Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google, have joined traditional agribusiness giants, such as Corteva, Bayer, Cargill and Syngenta, in a quest to impose a certain type of agriculture and food production on the world.

The WEF Agenda Behind Modi Farm Reform

17 February 2021 — Counter Currents

In September 2021 the UN will hold a Food Systems Summit. The aim will be to reshape world agriculture and food production in the context of the Malthusian UN Agenda 2030 “sustainable agriculture” goals. The recent radical farm laws from the government of Narenda Modi in India are part of the same global agenda, and it’s all not good.

German Government Uses Lockdown to Sneak Deadly Pesticide

Using the conditions of the most recent coronavirus lockdown, the German government’s agriculture minister has made a stealth decision, without open debate, to re-instate a banned class of systemic insecticides known as neonicotinoids. The German move follows a similar move by the French Macron government and puts the entire food security of the EU in serious danger. Ironically, or maybe not, the move comes at a time when food security worldwide is in grave stress owing to consequences of the global COVID lockdowns that have disrupted huge parts of the global food chains.

Europe says no to glyphosate!

3 July 2017 — SumOfUs

A staggering 1.3 million Europeans signed the Stop Glyphosate European Citizens Initiative (ECI). Together we’ve told the European Commission to ban Monsanto’s favourite pesticide, to reform the EU’s pesticide approval procedure, and to set EU-wide mandatory reduction targets for pesticide use. We’ve done it — and only just in time!

Support the Ban on Bee-Killing Pesticides

17 June 2017 — SumOfUs

A historic ban on bee-killing neonics is being proposed in Europe — but the pesticide lobby and its political friends are desperately trying to stop it. 

The new ban on bee-killing pesticides would go far beyond current protections, banning three deadly neonics from fields all across Europe. But a small group of politicians is trying to block it before EU member states even get to vote on the new regulations.

Meanwhile, a scathing new UN report called the idea that we need neonics to feed ourselves a “myth” perpetuated by “unethical” corporations like Bayer and Syngenta that have millions in profits riding on continued reliance on bee-killing pesticides. It’s high time for a global ban on these deadly pesticides. 

I’ve taken action. Can you click here and add your voice to the call for a global ban on bee-killing pesticides too?
