Three cheers for Poland, for it has joined a growing list of nations banning the GMO crops of the bozos at "DuPonzanto":
"The decree is in the works. It introduces a complete ban on the MON810 strain of maize in Poland," said Polish Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki, who also explained to the press that pollen from MON810 appears to be responsible for further devastating the already dwindling bee population throughout the country and elsewhere."
Good for the Poles. As the article notes, "Back in early March, nine European countries -- Belgium, Great Britain, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Ireland, and Slovakia -- successfully blocked an effort by the Danish EU presidency to allow expanded cultivation of GM crops in Europe. And around that same time, France imposed its own ban on MON810."
But there's a question lurking in the background here, and I hope you see it. The European Union, as I have noted hare, and as others - The Daily Bell, Alex Jones, Lew Rockwell, to name but a few - have also observed, the European Union is largely the creation of corporate and banking elites, run top down by a cadre of technocrats beholden to them. As the fruitless efforts on the part of states and farmers in this country have demonstrated, it is all but impossible to get an unresponsive federal government, corrupted as it is by big corporate money and a revolving door between the FDA and those very corporations, to curb the use of these questionable crops.
I suspect that, if the calls for "more union" coming out of Berlin(and ultimately, London's and Frankfurt's banksters) succeed, then we can look for similar corruption of European agriculture to occur there. And we may look for something else, too.
The disorders these crops have introduced into honeybee hives is all too apparent, yet more evidence of how inadequate scientific testing was "performed" on these supposedly "safe" crops. These corporations have corrupted not only governments, but the scientific process itself, for they possess the money to buy the "required results," to suppress results when they do not conform to the agenda, and to disseminate "information" and manage perceptions. Don't look for that process to improve if Frau Merkel gets her way, and gets "more union."
See you on the flip side.
