The Fumigated Peoples of Argentina and comrades from other fumigated towns in the "United Republic of Soybeans" in Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay and Bolivia are meeting and marching this week in Rosario🇦🇷 for food sovereignty and freedom from fumigation! #GMOs…
They're mobilising against the concentration, expulsion, poisoning, disease and death agribusiness brings with its #GMO soy and #pesticides. There have also been talks and workshops organized by the Institute of Socio-Environmental Health of the National University of Rosario. Image
"We cannot continue producing crops based on chemicals poisoning people. What they are doing is crazy. The State cannot continue endorsing this way of producing, they are responsible for the economic, environmental and health disaster that is taking place"…

Smith understood that capitalists hate capitalism. They don't want to compete with one another, because that would interfere with their ability to raise the prices their customers pay and reduce the wages they pay their workers.

Argentina has just approved its 70th #GMO. It's a soybean variety modified to tolerate two herbicides: the carcinogenic glyphosate and glufosinate (banned in the EU). The latter is considered up to 15 times more toxic than #glyphosate itself.
Argentina's latest GMO soybean is part of a commercial offering that includes #GMO varieties of corn, potato, wheat, safflower, cotton & alfalfa. And it precedes the imminent launch of the 1st variety of GMO sugarcane conceived in local laboratories.
None of these #GMO crops incorporate any nutritional improvement, reduce the use of poisons or achieve exorbitant yields as advertised by the companies that commercialise them, the media co-opted by agribusiness, and complicit politicians

1. Instead of reporting, #scicomm writers like @sciencecohen were narrative enforcers for Tony Fauci and other virologists. I'm sure Cohen is hopping mad, but @AshleyRindsberg just went through the emails.…
2. After reading this, a source told me @sciencecohen is like a hockey goon, who skates onto the ice and immediately starts throwing punches.

Nothing elegant about this guy

As I explained last summer, Cohen and Fauci protect and promote each other.
3. Since @ScienceMagazine Jon Cohen's emails were made public, he has given conflicting reasons for why he dimed out a whistleblower to his apparent friend Kristian Andersen.…

Had a visit from a counterterrorism officer once because someone suggested our fundraising must be for nefarious purposes! Compare this eagerness to spring into action with what happens when environmentalists and whistleblowers are attacked or even killed…
Salomé Saqué: “When environmental activists protest, [the Minister of the Interior] calls them ‘eco-terrorists’ and sends hundreds of police. But when the whistleblower who convicted Monsanto [of poisoning] is the victim of an extremely disturbing attack, there is radio silence.”
French MP Loïc Prud’homme in the 🇫🇷National Assembly: “Mr Minister, it took you less than 3 hours to call demonstrators ‘eco-terrorists’, how many hours will it take you to label these pro-#Monsanto fanatics – ready to do anything to silence whistleblowers – ‘toxic-terrorists’?”

@Bayer Hooded men tied up the victim of pesticide poisoning with electric cables, threatened him with a knife to his throat, in an attempt to make him swallow a liquid, while declaring, "We are tired of hearing you and seeing your face on TV." #Monsanto #pesticides
@Bayer Not the first such attack. In 2020 an organic farmer was hospitalised in France after being poisoned in a pesticide attack on his farm, involving "vast quantities of #glyphosate"…

New report shows four largest agrochemical companies — Bayer (#Monsanto), BASF, Corteva & Sinochem — are exerting increasing leverage over an agricultural system that concentrates power & wealth, while threatening health, the environment & access to food…
Institutional economists suggest that when 4 firms combine to control 40% or more of a market it's no longer competitive — it's an oligopoly. @ETC_Group estimates that by 2020 just 4 firms controlled ~51% of seed sales, and 62% of global agrochemical sales…

Ook is Vermeer campagneleider voor de #BBB. Het adres van de BBB is hetzelfde als het communicatiebureau van Bayer/Monsanto in Nederland. Ik neem aan dat #Caroline vd Plas, lastige vragen hierover niet wil beantwoorden.

Just ran across this piece w/ @TaylorLorenz trying to clear up #COVID19 misinformation.… You may be shocked to learn she screwed it up by ... promoting a well-known #Monsanto & tobacco shill.

Not joking. cc: @AshleyRindsberg @libsoftiktok @burackbobby_ /1 Image
As an example of Twitter "labelling facts as misinformation" Lorenz cites Henry I. Miller who was forced to take down a tweet on vaccines.

But who is Henry I. Miller, you might ask?

Excellent question. Have you heard of #Monsanto? How about Big Tobacco? /2 Image
The NY Times @dannyhakim exposed Miller for running an article at Forbes that was ghostwritten for Miller by #Monsanto.… When Monsanto pitched Miller about what they had written, Miller responded that he wanted "a high-quality draft" from Monsanto. /3 Image

#Warprofiteers: @Bayer lifts forecasts as food shortages boost demand for seeds and weedkiller. Almost doubles its growth forecast for 2022 as sharp increase in global food prices proves a boon for Bayer’s business…
@Bayer Despite profiting from the impact of the war on food prices, @Bayer still trades close to 60% below its level before news of its #Monsanto acquisition. That has exposed Bayer to concerns #Roundup causes cancer and it triggered an investor revolt that CEO Baumann barely survived.
@Bayer Bayer has already set aside up to $16 billion for existing and future Roundup lawsuits. In June, it suffered a major legal defeat when the US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal over a landmark ruling that awarded $25M to a man who claimed #Roundup had caused his cancer.

💣 If you haven't yet read this @Fakir_ article, now is the time!

We learn how a journalist wrote articles under false identities to influence public opinion, including articles aimed at discrediting @IARCWHO after it classified #glyphosate as a probable carcinogen 🧐

@Fakir_ @IARCWHO These ghostwritten pieces on #glyphosate contain the usual pesticide lobby talking points:
👉Comparison with table salt
👉Glyphosate prevents world hunger
👉@IARCWHO's view is at odds with regulatory agencies
👉Suspect links with environmental groups
@Fakir_ @IARCWHO The pieces of the puzzle fit together:

Remember! Just the year before, #Monsanto had paid scientists to sign ghostwritten papers criticizing the same @IARCWHO conclusions:

U.S. Supreme Court rejects Bayer bid to nix Roundup weedkiller suits… The Supreme Court's action dealt a blow to Bayer as the company maneuvers to limit its legal liability in thousands of cases. #glyphosate
The decision frustrates Bayer’s plan to stem the wave of litigation it has faced since its $63bn takeover of #Monsanto. More than 30,000 claims remain outstanding, for which Bayer set aside $4.5bn in addition to the approximately $11.5bn Bayer had already been forced to set aside
Last month, Bayer’s stock fell 6.2% the day after the Biden administration recommended the Supreme Court decline to hear Bayer’s appeal. That move by the U.S. Justice Department appeared to diminish the chances of the court hearing the case… #glyphosate

Monsanto’s Ghostwriting to Influence Science and Media…
While most ghostwriting scandals in science involve physicians, #Monsanto ran a unique and sophisticated campaign to promote GMO technology and attack critics /1 Image
When the World Health Organisation was going to find the herbicide #glyphosate linked to cancer, #Monsanto started a ghostwriting campaign to counter.

Monsanto's William Heydens “Manuscript to be initiated by [Monsanto] as ghost writers." /2 Image
Documents uncovering this corruption became available through Freedom of Information FOIA and litigation, and were later publicised.

Pero, además,

Bien ahora después de las factureras, que son un contexto diferente a la ousorcing.

Tienen una estrecha relación con los protagonistas de delitos de estos!!
Todos los delitos relacionados a este colosal fraude. Tiene un origen en común.

El PRÍAN. Aquí es la continuidad del PRI desde el PAN.

Las outsourcing es un contexto ya muy documentado y muy comentado.

Los PANISTAS en el legislativo, las defendieron con uñas y dientes.

Brilliant interview with @careygillam on the nuts & bolts of agriculture & pesticide disinformation… Carey's just been blocked by corporate sponsors of a big ag media event from talking to fellow journalists about how to investigate stories using FOIA
@careygillam Carey says corporate money is at play in journalism conferences and gives example of how @Bayer—in exchange for v generous donations—positioned itself to not just set agendas for journalistic conferences but get a say in what kind of stories are applauded and promoted via awards.
@careygillam @Bayer Carey & @thackerpd also discuss the evidence of Monsanto's targeting of journalists & scientists via front groups & other third parties. One group targeting Carey et al was told, “The key will be keeping #Monsanto in the background so as not to harm the credibility of the info.”
