Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.
Last year, Director of the Global Justice Now Nick Dearden said:
“It’s scandalous that UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business. This is the exact opposite of what is needed, which is support to small-scale farmers and fairer distribution of land and resources to give African countries more control over their food systems. Africa can produce enough food to feed its people. The problem is that our food system is geared to the luxury tastes of the richest, not the needs of ordinary people. Here the British government is using aid money to make the problem even worse.”
Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Benin, Malawi and Senegal are all involved in the New Alliance
To see this in action, we need look no further to a conference held on Monday 23 March in London, organised by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This secretive, invitation-only meeting with aid donors and big seed companies discussed a strategy to make it easier for these companies to sell patented seeds in Africa and thus increase corporate control of seeds

Note: Ethiopian statists are currently stealing Oromo land, Burkina Faso has French and US military fighting the terrorist bogeyman al-whatever-we-want-to-call-it, Nigeria has Bogus Haram.
I am contemptous of these “terror” groups as their actions progress statist/pirate interests! Furthermore with the outsourcing of murder by the Statists and corporate pirates to mercenaries it requires little imagination to envision convenient acts of terror.
This is the context within which to view the “humanitarian” Ebola and vaccinations projects ongoing in Africa. You are free to believe that the monopolistic psychotic corporate pirates and their statists legal covermen care for humanity.
According to a report by Nigerian Watch, a UK-based magazine for Nigerian communities, hundreds of US Marines are now being stationed in Ghana as the Nigerian elections begin to take place. The Marines are allegedly being stationed in Ghana so as to be available to remove American personnel from Nigeria if the elections result in violence, a possibility that some analysts are expecting. Nigerian Watch reports that “that there may be post-election violence, especially after the results are announced as neither the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) or the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) is likely to accept defeat.” … The source also allegedly stated that “There are well over 200 marines and they are camped at the airport. The helicopters are believed to be meant for the quick evacuation of Americans in Nigeria in the event of violence.” … Not only are Boko Haram’s connections to ISIS (and hence US intelligence) well-documented, but the terrorists groups’ own military interests in terms of territory and destabilization are conveniently the same as those of the US and AFRICOM whenever one views it on the map. Taken into consideration the geopolitical and geostrategic interests of these locations – particularly between the US and China – and one can easily begin to see the role that Boko Haram plays in the battle between two major powers over natural resources, investment, and influence. Whatever the true nature of the military troop placement may be (assuming Nigerian Watch’s sources are correct), given the track record of the US geopolitical movements in recent years, it is undoubtedly a development to watch closely.
Note: AFRICOM has a presence in Liberia due to Ebola infections in West Africa.

The issue of oil in west Africa, notably in the waters of the Gulf of Guinea have become increasingly strategic both to China who is roaming the world in search of future secure oil import sources, and the United States, whose oil geo-politics was summed up in a quip by then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the 1970’s: ‘If you control the oil, you control entire nations.’
Ebola, AFRICOM, Oil, China and the Petrodollar. Who would have thought. Multiple objectives
The U.S. Committee for UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Fund) received today a $26 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The gift will be used in the fight to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), a disease that was responsible in 1998 for more than 300,000 deaths in developing nations
entirely preventable disease prevalent where poverty, lack of hygiene and inefficient or no health services exist
Their own write-up states the cause: “poverty, lack of hygiene and inefficient or no health services exist”
What are the figures for maternal and neonatal tetanus in 2014.
What are the figures for MNT in the west?
How many cases of MNT in Kenya since 1998?
It would seem to the lay person, improved medical standards and care would have safer and more significant impact, if maternal and neonatal tetanus mortality where the ONLY objectives.
So we have a direct link in terms of funding of the b-HCG laced tetanus vaccine via UNICEF and the BMGF (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation).
The Kenyan Director of Medical Services Dr Nicholas Muraguri has stated that the reason ONLY females were given the Tetanus vaccine was to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, an agenda or objective matching the Gates Foundation and UNICEF.
Is the Kenyan Director of Medical Services Dr Nicholas Muraguri an ignorant lackey of the sterilization agenda?
