New cables ‘expose’ US govt lobbies worldwide for Monsanto, other GMO corps

Owen Paterson should read this.

After US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks showed that the State Department was lobbying worldwide for Monsanto and other similar corporations, a new report based on the cables shows Washington’s shilling for the biotech industry in distinct detail.

The August 2011 WikiLeaks revelations showed that American diplomats had requested funding to send lobbyists for the biotech industry to hold talks with politicians and agricultural officials in “target countries” in areas like Africa and Latin America, where genetically-modified crops were not yet a mainstay, as well as some European countries that have resisted the controversial agricultural practice.
After a concerted effort to “closely examine five years of State Department diplomatic cables from 2005 to 2009 to provide the first comprehensive analysis of the strategy, tactics and U.S. foreign policy objectives to foist pro-agricultural biotechnology policies worldwide,” nonprofit consumer protection group Food & Water Watch published on Tuesday a report showing in plain detail the depth of the partnership between the federal government and a number of controversial biotech companies that have slowly but surely pushed their GMO products on a number of new countries in recent years.

TAP – A little bird told me that HRH Prince of Wales is dead against Genetically Modified Crops, and that he actively campaigns with ministers to stop them being introduced.  I find that odd, alongside his involvement with the United Nations, viz. his Prince of Wales Business Leaders Forum (name changed to International Business Leaders Forum two years ago), which does nothing but promote GMOs.  I get puzzled by it all some days!  You wonder how it all hangs together.  Maybe Charles agrees to stuff to keep his position at the UN, which he privately completely disagrees with.

You wonder if Owen Paterson’s in exactly the same boat – having agreed to promote GMOs, as the deal he’s cut with Cameron in return for his promotion to Sec of State for the Environment.  He was heartily tired of Northern Ireland after six years of the same thing and needed a change.

    Prince Charles also apparently speaks out for holistic treatments, also goes against big-pharma-big-corp-big-banking conspiracy thinking.

    Will the real Prince Charles please stand up? His UN role suggests he is sold out to the corporate totalitarian state, which uses environmental nonsense to justify enforcement of world government, while he maintains on a personal level that he is dead against the very programmes he has been instrumental in creating and introducing. He is engaging in doublespeak, building an easy defence should the totalitarian state not come into being, while there can be little doubt his loyalties are solidly behind the depopulation agenda. Don’t tell me he doesn’t know what a chemtrail is.
