Who Owns the World – The hidden facts behind landownership

http://www.whoownstheworld.com/

Land ownership is an increasingly topical subject that affects us all in one way or another. Kevin Cahill’s book Who Owns the World provides an in depth and informative resource on the subject, no matter where you live on the planet.
This web-site is an extension of that book and providing current news and links to useful information.

Note: In relation to Oromo land theft by Ethiopian statists, US Federal statists in Oregon, African statists theft for international (chinese, indian, US, EU) investors in Africa, land is tangible and the basis for health and well-being!
The issue of land also exposes the lie about eugenicists Billy boy Gates being the richest person on earth. Queen Elizabeth II is the largest landowner!

Rich Men in London Still Deciding Africa’s Future

http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/03/24/rich-men-in-london-still-deciding-africas-future/

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.

GMO-labeling initiative defeated by Monsanto-sponsored groups

http://rinf.com/alt-news/health/gmo-labeling-initiative-defeated-monsanto-sponsored-groups/

Supporters of an Oregon ballot initiative requiring labels on genetically-modified food acknowledged defeat on Thursday after an automatic recount failed to sway the results of November’s vote and a judge denied their plea for a count of rejected ballots.

“The labeling movement will continue to grow,” the campaign said in a statement. “We draw strength from the fact that we came so achingly close to winning this vote, despite being outspent by more than $12 million.”

In what became the most expensive campaign in Oregon’s history, Yes on 92 was outspent $21 million to $9 million by No on 92, which included major agribusiness and biotechnology companies with deep pockets, including Monsanto and DuPont, as well as the venerable anti-labeling trade group Grocery Manufacturers Association.

If you recall the Monsanto pledge:
