TIDBIT: IT’S OFFICIAL: THE RUSSIAN DUMA BANS GMO CROPS AND ...

This very important story was shared by Ms. M.W., and consider its implications in the light of today's main blog about cyber-technology development and Russia's strategic plan for it. And note the reference to the "GMO geopolitics" I've been predicting for years would happen, with Mr. Putin's remarks of last December:

Russian State Duma Passes Total Ban on GMO Crops and Animals

  1. Well… moving to Russia might now be the ONLY option if you want to be free of MonFarbenSanto….

    With all the latest “awakenings” with regard to the consequences of glysophate (Roundup), we have totally lost the ability to keep GMO’s out of our habitats and organic farms. Losing Judge Scalia has even broader implications at this moment. Let Hitlery and her squad of Goldman Sachs/Corporate goons in there and we will have sealed the death of “clean food” in the USSA forever, if we haven’t already lost by this latest judgment.

  2. Russians prefer to eat “clean” food, without any chemical additives or GMO. Some time ago I was cooking a soup and I added a stock cube in it, my Russian wife saw this and gave me an serious lecture about food additives and chemicals 😀 So I trashed the soup and made a new one without stock cubes. I have a feeling that majority of Russians think like this, not all of them of course. And this “chemical” food is much more cheaper than healthy “clean” food and usually its also very tasty too. Its a global problem for sure.

    1. Same here. We cook just about everything from scratch, and we eat brown rice as the staple grain. We avoid wheat as much as possible because of the roundup, and even though we’re told publicly that our farms don’t use the stuff, we know differently. I have a work colleague whose son works in rural NSW and has confirmed that the wheat is most definitely sprayed with roundup. The poisoning of our traditionally staple grain is a disgrace, but disgrace seems to be the the norm in our current human culture.

      1. Monsanto crap is everywhere! Its totally a disgrace, you are totally right about it.

  3. robert,
    well said again and looking farther forward gives the idea that mr global knows all that and is executing a plan to clear what he considers his ag land of the current folk farming it. perhaps that’s already been done in russia? either way, why would mr global let his perceived enemies live well off the land with virtuous ideas when he can drive them off with bad ideas and later let his friends employ good sense. long term scorched earth policy eh?

    don’t believe it’s a plan and doable in mr global’s eyes? take a look at how india’s being done. or for that matter chernobyl.

    all along these same lines, saw this from an alex jones knock off – mike adams.

    he can be fairly insane on a couple issues. for the most part on food issues, he’s spot on.

    thank you all and catch ya when i can

  4. From article:
    “This strength shown by the Russian government was also shown early in 2016 when they dealt a huge blow to U.S. farmers, by banning all imports of U.S. soybeans and corn due to microbial and GMO contamination.”

    Stepping back from the GMO-issue alone, I think that this quote shows that Russian legislators are neither bought nor powerless. Contrast that with US legislators. I hate to say it, but it is looking like the current Russian system (their Fed aside) is more ‘healthy’ than the current US system…

  5. I saw the teleporter post and was like oh damn, then I saw this and was like oh damnnnnn. This is the bigger story of the two by far.

    It may soon become time to look into Russian citizenship. Our two civilizations are on divergent paths.

    1. You are reading my mind, RM! I have a niece and nephew adopted out of Siberia and have been wishing they still spoke Russian (even if it was childlike) and I could take them with me to Russia since it is becoming far more of a rational location than this idiocracy!

  7. CHEERS to the Russian Duma for this ban of GMO crops-animals. One caveat increase the fines against violators you have to hit them hard where it hurts and counts their bank accounts.

    Industrial agriculture and industrial food systems have brought us a triple crisis: a dying planet, diseased citizens, and debt-ridden farmers. Ecological and just alternatives have become imperative.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Seed freedom and food freedom are the foundations for food democracies. Food democracy is the right for farmers to save and share seed and to practice poison-free agroecology. It is the right of farmers to have the freedom to grow and share diversity through diversified and fair markets. Food democracy is the right of all citizens to have access to healthy, nutritious, safe, affordable, culturally, appropriate, and sustainably produced food, It is the right to know what is in our food. Alternatives based on food democracy are flowering everywhere
