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.
The hand-held gadget analyzes temperature, humidity, ammonia (found in “pink slime”), and other organic compounds to determine whether beef, poultry, pork, or fish is safe to eat. Just point the device toward the meat, click a button, and the data is sent to a smartphone or tablet. An app will produce a “fresh” or “not fresh” message as well as a detailed reading of the compounds present in the food. The folks behind it claim an accuracy rate of 80 to 95 percent.
Note: Self reliance and self testing!
Senator Jeff Sessions Issues Dire Warning on TPP
Senator Elizabeth Warren TPP ISDS Feb 26 2015
Note: Imagine Big Pharma suing because it cannot get enough “safe and effective” vaccines sold or Monsanto demanding “lost” profits due to consumer rejection of GMO products.
Also bear in mind the sociopathy of corporations, its their inherent and intended nature!
Do you really want a sociopathic entity dictating how you live on this earth?
Note: Voting on Obama trade (TPP/TTIP) on the same weekend of Bilderberg meeting. Interesting!
Would have been nice to confirm the deal at your weekend meeting, huh Obama?
In the context of slavery, Obama would have been an active participant in the trade.
Knowing, active compliance in the psychopathic plans of his fellow “ruling turds”!
The big idea that industrial producers in the food system want you to believe is that only they can produce enough for the future population (Peekhaus 2010). Thus non-industrial systems of farming, such as all those which use agroecological methods, or SRI, or are localised and family-oriented, or which use organic methods, or non-GMO seeds, cannot feed the world.
Note: The defunct and self serving solution of Bill Gates et al is more psyhcopathic corporatism of the food supply.
“With the new admission by the World Health Organization that Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup is causing cancer worldwide, now is the most important time to join the movement and take a stand.”
Despite claims by the multinational biotech giant that genetically modified crops would actually lead to a decrease in Roundup use, U.S. Geological Survey data reveals the use of Roundup’s key component glyphosate has increased 16-fold since the mid-1990s when GMO crops were first introduced.
