How, over the past 40 years, U.S food supply chain has become concentrated in hands of a few large multinationals, which serve as middlemen in everything from seed genetics to hog processing to supermarkets. Do we want such a business model in India; think hard, do we ?

2.5 वर्षापूर्वी जी फक्त घोषणा झाली, ती आपण आज पूर्ण केली आहे.
आज तो ऐतिहासिक क्षण आहे.
सातत्याने दोन अर्थसंकल्पात याच्या फक्त घोषणा होत होत्या.
हा पैसा थेट शेतकऱ्यांच्या खात्यात जमा झालेला आहे, हे आणखी एक वैशिष्ट्य आहे.
#farmerswelfare #farmer
शेतकऱ्यांच्या कल्याणासाठी राज्य सरकार सातत्याने कार्यरत आहे. या दीड महिन्यात 7000 कोटी रुपये शेतकऱ्यांच्या खात्यात जमा झालेले आहेत. सिंचन हा सरकारच्या प्राधान्यक्रमाचा विषय आहे.
नुकत्याच झालेल्या अतिवृष्टीच्या नुकसानीचे पंचनामे करण्याचे सुद्धा आदेश देण्यात आले आहेत.

Agri culture in India involved raising livestock to support farming, for milk and meat, and also to support the leather industry. It has evolved over millennia and weathered quite a variety of challenges: socio-political and environmental. 1/15
Caste was exploited. In post independent India it was eminently possible to attack caste based occupation & discrimination in farming and livestock rearing, without destroying millennia old knowledge that constituted agriculture. The opportunity was forfeited. 2/15
First by the Congress pandering to upper caste pressures, and now BJP, have targeted livestock rearing and turned the farms and livestock into a battle of political ideologies. 3/15

This month, the dramatic #FarmersProtests in the Netherlands have captured the media's attention.

Today, we take a look at what the coverage got wrong about the #boerenprotest and the #BigAg interests many journalists failed to mention.👇 1/19

🚫Most reports failed to mention 8 major companies that have an interest in protecting the status quo:

🐷 meat: @VionFoodGroup, @VanDrieGroup & @PlukonFoodGroup
🌽 feed: Van Heus, For Farmers & @Agrifirm
🐮 dairy: @FrieslndCampina

🔍"The Mighty Eight try to be invisible because the more it is seen as a #farmer protest and not the big industry behind it, the better,” says @FrankMechielsen, @feedback_europe.

@Agrifirm even supported the #boerenprotest financially, @NOS reports. 3/19 nos.nl/nieuwsuur/arti…

[#Thread] Après plusieurs jours d'expérimentation, c'est avec beaucoup de plaisir que je vous présente le projet @DefiKingdoms

Le coupable ? @DocMarmott

A cause de lui, j'ai été obligé de faire de la #DeFi, du staking, yield farming et #PlayToEarn... Voyons ça de plus près ⬇️
J'en profite également pour faire une petite expérimentation.

Ce #thread sera donc considéré comme un #guide ultime et complet autour du #PlaytoEarn @DefiKingdoms.

Je pense même en faire un deuxième thread qui serait plus orienté suite à mes tests, résultats et avis. Let's go !
@DefiKingdoms (DFK), c’est quoi exactement

DFK pour les intimes, c’est l’union d’un #PlaytoEarn et de la #DeFi.

Accessible sur la blockchain @harmonyprotocol ( $ONE ), c’est le mélange d’un jeu-vidéo et d’un DEX #crypto dans lequel de nombreuses interactions sont possibles.

किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाचे वेगळेपन
💡साहेबराव करपे कुटुंबियांच्या सामूहिक आत्महत्येच्या दिवशी 19 मार्च रोजी 'अन्नदात्यासाठी अन्नत्याग' करण्याची सुरुवात किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाने केली.
💡18 जून ला किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाने 'शेतकरी पारतंत्र्य दिवस' म्हटले.
#19मार्च #SahebraoKarpe #18June
💡शेतकऱयांचा प्रश्न गरिबीचा नसून गुलामीचा आहे, ही बाब किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाने ठामपणे सांगितली.
💡शेतकरी या शब्दाची नेमकी व्याख्या करून शेतकऱयांच्या नावाखाली बिगर शेतकऱयांच्या 'कर्ज बेबाकी'चा विरोध केला.
#freedom #Farmer #poverty
💡अनुदान आणि कर्ज माफी न मागता शेतकऱ्यांसाठी संपूर्ण स्वातंत्र्य मिळण्यासाठी पुन्हा एकदा संघर्ष करणे हाच किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाचा एकमेव कार्यक्रम आहे.
💡शेतकऱ्यांचे वैयक्तिक आणि व्यावसायिक स्वातंत्र्य हिरावून घेणारे कायदे हे देशविरोधी कायदे आहेत, हे किसानपुत्र आंदोलनाने ओळखले #Law

1. Scything grass by hand is an art, but unfortunately this is slowly being replaced by mechanisation. This farmer sharpened his blade regularly and kept his stone in a holster on his belt for easy access. #sustainability #grass #farming #Transylvania #scythe #hay Image
2. Hay making in Transylvania #sustainable #farming Image
3. The farmer was just finishing off here. He had a very efficient, fluid motion with a wide reaching arc. He was such a pleasure to watch. #scythe #scything #farmer #farming #makinghay #grass #Transylvania Image

Not also from right-wingers, anti-migrant rethoric is also fueled from left-wing such Haiti, says if migrant (usually from US) work in Haiti it will looted Haiti resource and workers ("poor" Haitian is slave of "rich" US) #Haiti #US
2.
Indeed. Haiti must empower local worker over migrant workers (mostly from US), prioritize local investment over foreign investment (as US and Haiti is "strategic" partner). Remember when American "investment" in Haiti displaced Haitian worker?
#Haiti #US #Imperialism
3.
One of U.S. "investment" is Tchako SA, an rice company based in Haiti, actually a subsidiary of Riceland Foods of Arkansas, US. Says it is only benefit US farmer over Haitian Farmers. One of evidence is displacement of Haitian farmer.

"The Dry" could have been just another murder mystery film, but what made it interesting was how it weaved in the #ecological crisis in #Australia - #bushfires & #droughts - with the social crisis in #rural farming communities & small towns.
The swirling dust devils, the dried up #rivers & creeks, correlates with a societal collapse. The washing of a car with waste #water, the red crud that emerges out of shower heads, all narrating how a #rain starved society has hit its #ecological limit.
It is also about the decline of the farming community in #Australia. A telling comment in the film - an old #farmer worrying about how his #land will be tilled after he is gone: "Farms with no people. Imagine that. No need for towns. No need for any of us."

In the #LongFoodMovement report, we're reminded that the world’s 30 million artisanal #fishers and workers provide nearly half of the #fish we eat (@IPBES, 2019).

But with #climatechange & island/ocean grabbing, small-scale fishers & their communities are in peril.

🧵Thread 👇🏾
Island/#ocean grabbing is likely to intensify as countries seek to solidify their influence, their #food supply chains, & their global sourcing and distribution networks. For example, in the #RedSea region, conflicts over fish & other marine resources threaten rich #biodiversity.
Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, said to
have some of the highest marine #biodiversity on earth, #China has been building airstrips, ports & other facilities on disputed islands & reefs, w/ the apparent aim of establishing military bases (cf. Ives,
2016).

The whole plot seems to have written a ‘Lame PR exercise’ all over it planned by Congress, and the critical meeting with PR agency could’ve happened in RaGa’s quick Europe trip, seeing the timing. Aim is to generate anti Indian gov feeling across the world. #Farmer’s protest
protest issue is now being taken across the world to hit the popularity of PM Modi and present government. The PR agency handling this must’ve been paid to only focus on biggest Handles on social media, irrespective of what they do. Porn stars, IG influencers, climate activist,
musician, singer ...doesn’t matter. If you have followers, just go ahead and tweet. The language itself is a direct giveaway. Various tweets from these celebs are using words like ‘ Bhakts, Media censor, paid actors’ etc etc which doesn’t happen unless you’re deeply engaged and

The "food basket of the nation” has indeed become empty. Those who have been around long enough will not agree any less. Those who were there in 80s and 90s.
So over the holidays I had a course to visit some rural areas around Benue ImageImage
“the food basket of the nation”. As we drove by, I could see un-nourished stands of Sorghum crop left after harvest of probably Soybeans or Yams. What caught my attention was the dwarf nature of the Sorghum crops due to lack of nutrients and the sparse population of the stands. Image
Am not going to go into why this is like this.
Again, during the harvest of Yams in December and January, I saw on social media when y'all displayed your plenteous harvest, or so you taught. But from the few farmers I talked to that harvested Yams, all said that the yield was Image

#VoicesFromHaryana #LetTheNetWork
#Haryana Government in its order stated that #Internet along with SMS services are being suspended to control fake rumours and disinformation during the ongoing #farmersagitation. The internet however is much more than social media.
#keepiton
The Internet has become a means of livelihood for people especially during the pandemic where the majority of citizens are still working and studying from home. Internet is used to verify information as well.
#pandemic #letthenetwork #keepiton #farmersrprotest
Internet shutdown cannot be used as a tool to suppress dissent. This is a violation of the right to freedom of speech and expression as well as the right to life. The impact of such shutdowns on citizens and the economy is huge.
