How much a life? Monsanto trial exposes risks of Roundup herbicide 23.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
"This case is way bigger than me. I hope it gets the attention that it needs." -- Dewayne Johnson, former school groundskeeper awarded $289 million in damages from Monsanto As a Saskatchewan resident for many years, I often heard the phrase "Roundup Ready." It was coined as if it were a harmless jingle for soda pop. The ad still rings in my ears. All farmers know of Roundup, the most effective weed killer. Most urbanites do as well. The way the corporate giant Monsanto has marketed, promoted, and created an artificial need for Roundup is a true story of profiteering and avarice. Now, finally, even some courts are accepting that it likely kills much more than just weeds and that Monsanto has acted to cover up concerns about the safety of Roundup. A few years ago, Dewayne Johnson, a courageous man and one who is also dying of cancer, launched a lawsuit against Monsanto. In early August, Johnson had his day in court -- and won. He showed that David can still take down Goliath -- something that some of us ...

Two important stories about seed and Monsanto 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health For decades, pockets of resistance around the world have been tracking and educating general publics about farmers' right to seed and the importance of not allowing corporations to patent seed or to manipulate genetic material for pure speculation and gain. Behind most of these stories of resistance has been the far-reaching control exercised by corporate giant Monsanto, particularly when it comes to demanding royalties on seed (harken back to Percy Schmeiser ) and modifying seed to be resistant to glysophate, a chemical pesticide it produces and sells under the brand of Roundup. Yes, we have all heard it said: Roundup Ready! Catchy and scary at the same time. This week two stories once again are showing how carelessness in food production and a lax regulatory framework, as well as popular pressure and resistance on food issues, can have dramatic results. These stories run deep. Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) has been monitoring the regulatory climate around genetically ...

The Bayer-Monsanto Merger Is Bad News for the Planet 20.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Two new studies from Europe  have found that the number of farm birds in France has crashed by a third in just 15 years, with some species being almost eradicated. The collapse in the bird population  mirrors the discovery last October  that over three quarters of all flying insects in Germany have vanished in just three decades. Insects are the staple food source of birds, the pollinators of fruits, and the aerators of the soil. The chief suspect in this mass extinction is the aggressive use of neonicotinoid pesticides,  particularly imidacloprid and clothianidin, both made by German-based chemical giant Bayer . These pesticides,  along with toxic glyphosate herbicides (Roundup) , have delivered a one-two punch against Monarch butterflies, honeybees and birds. But rather than banning these toxic chemicals, on March 21st  the EU approved  the $66 billion merger of Bayer and Monsanto, the US agribusiness giant producing Roundup and the genetically modified (GMO) seeds that have reduced seed diversity ...

"Many people are angered by the cruelties of the twenty-first-century economy. And their fury has fueled worldwide protest. Simultaneously, and almost everywhere, low-wage workers and small farmers began to revolt: in New York City restaurants, laundries, and warehouses, in Western Cape wineries and the garment shops of Phnom Penh, in Southern California Walmarts, and the big hotels of Providence, Oslo, Karachi, and Abuja. As capital has globalized, so has the labor movement. Marches, strikes, protests, and sit-ins from Tampa to Mali have changed the global conversation about workers' rights." So writes Annelise Orleck in her new book We Are All Fast Food Workers Now: The Global Uprising Against Poverty Wages -- which, as she explains on this week's episode of Off-Kilter, tells the story behind the growing global labor movement ...

California Court Blocks State Agriculture Department From Spraying Pesticides 4.3.2018 Truthout.com
In a win for environmental and public health advocates, a California court has halted a program that allows the state agriculture department to spray pesticides on public and private property without proper notice to the public about its intention to spray or adequate study of the possible adverse impacts of the chemicals used. The court order, which came late last week, was in response to a  lawsuit  brought by 11 environmental and public health groups -- including the Environmental Working Group, Center for Food Safety, Pesticide Action Network North America, Center for Biological Diversity, and Moms Advocating Sustainability -- and the city of Berkeley. The California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA)  Plant Pest Prevention and Management Program , which is supposed to control outbreaks of invasive plant pests, gave the agency the license to use 79 pesticides -- including some known to cause cancer and birth defects and to be highly toxic to bees, butterflies, and other wildlife -- ...
