France bans GMO’s while French President Macron tries to push them on Kenya! In 2017 young Africans on social media heaped praise on Ghana’s president Nana Akufo-Addo for his response to a question at a joint press conference in Accra with the visiting French president Emmanuel Macron.
Addo commented “We can no longer continue to make policy for ourselves, in our country, in our region, in our continent on the basis of whatever support that the western world or France, or the European Union can give us. It will not work. It has not worked and it will not work”, he stressed. Africans are interested in trade not charity they finally realize when it comes to resources and youthful populations they are the worlds resource.“We have to get away from this mindset of dependency. This mindset about ‘what can France do for us?’ France will do whatever it wants to do for its own sake, and when those coincide with ours, ‘tant mieux’ [so much better] as the French people say…
Our concern should be what do we need to do in this 21st century to move Africa away from being cap in hand and begging for aid, for charity, for handouts. The African continent when you look at its resources, should be giving monies to other places…We need to have a mindset that says we can do it…and once we have that mindset we’ll see there’s a liberating factor for ourselves,” his rising tone and demeanor demonstrating his passion for this subject. Now it seems Kenya has gotten wise as well. French President Macron has supported the efforts of Bill Gates through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s work.
A foundation that focuses mainly on youth population growth and sub-Saharan Africa. A big part of that involves agriculture — hence the focus on climate change and genetically-modified organisms. They want to push the products African nations have steadfastly opposed with a rhetoric of half truths about the safety and efficacy of GMOs. They especially are worried about the growth potential of the hemp industry in Africa which could tip the balance of power in the west permanently awakening a new golden age in Africa. On a deeper level know one wants to discuss the real ramifications of climate change when it comes to global politics and agriculture it is Africa that feeds Europe not the other way around as globalists would have you think.
With the release of a recent report from the World Health Organization that 93% of the word’s children are breathing toxic air and drinking poor quality water. The study also revealed the worse air conditions were mainly in Northern (Europeanized) African Nations, India. and China. With Europe and The US following close behind. It is no wonder most African nations do not want to listen to any gobbledygook about bringing modified seeds and foods into their countries, when they can see how it has adversely affected crops and health of American farms etc…The kenyans face the problem of army worms which they fear will become tolerant of the GMO and pesticides causing stronger more expensive and toxic pesticides to be needed. This is already happening in North America from the GMO crops there.Quick fixes like trying to adopt GMO will always end up in more catastrophes. Mono-culture and destruction of the environment (fauna and flora) using pesticides, herbicides … are the main cause of destruction of crops by pest. Western tricks have been used before in Africa to get profits as one protester accused:
TO CREATE MARKET FOR BOTTLED WATER THEY STOPPED TREATING WATER, RESULTING IN PERPETUAL TYPHOID EPIDEMICS AND VOILA! MARKET FOR BOTTLED WATER WAS CREATED!
NOW THEY HAVE INTRODUCED INCURABLE MAIZE STALK-BORERS, AKA ARMY WORMS, IN ORDER TO INTRODUCE FARMING OF THE LOATHED GMO MAIZE, WILL THEY WIN AGAIN?
Monsanto came to provide GMO seeds over the last few years into India and because of them thousands of farmers committed suicide! One of the biggest issues with GM foods is the ability of a farmer to choose whether he or she wants to grow GM crops and plants. Those who choose to obtain organic designation or simply have no interest in growing GM crops may, in one sense, be forced to do so because of GM seeds being blown into their fields.GM seeds vary a great deal in price but they are typically 30 to 40 percent more expensive than seeds for conventional crops.
Another issue relating to farmers is that there can be challenges with regards to exporting GM products, mostly to countries where GM crops are not favoured or there is an outright mistrust of these food products.Farmers who have invested in GM crops but have been unable to find a market for these crops are sometimes ‘rescued’ to some extent through government subsidies. Unfortunately, such subsidies still cost the overall economy of the nation and affect every tax-paying citizen in the country.
So attempts to give GM seeds to farmers look like attempts to destroy their agriculture industry and therefore lower their populations through starvation.There is also current speculation thatfalling US birth rates are connected to genetically modified foods! Spermicidal corn has been developed, and likely deployed somewhere in Africa , Latin America or other “Third World countries”). Bill Gates’ advice to use vaccines to reduce population is based on his thinking that women will not feel the need to keep reproducing if child survival rates improve.
The only problem is (according to India)his vaccines seem to kill more children then they hypothetically save!Have 15 years of GM foods have reduced the US birthrate? Without labeling and follow up testing, we may never know. Scientifically we do know that non-melanated populations would be affected first this is why white mice are preferred for lab experiments they show adverse affects faster than black mice.
We do know that many factors contribute to infertility, including cultural factors, agrochemicals and other industrial pollutants – many of which are endocrine disrupters that affect reproduction, as well as parental health, and perhaps vaccines and pharmaceuticals, most of which contain GMOs.At the international level, of the 196 nations whose 2009 birth rates were reported by the World Bank, 57 had lower birth rates than the US, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and the UK. Of those 57 nations with lower birth rates than the US, and none of them were in Africa!
Teen births in the USA are at their lowest level in almost 70 years, federal data report today. Birthrates for ages 15-19 in all racial and ethnic groups in the USA are lower than ever reported.The new analysis, based on 2016 preliminary data, shows a range in birthrates among racial and ethnic groups, from 10.9 for Asians to 20.5 for whites, 54.5 for blacks and 56.7 for Hispanics.The National Biosafety Authority (NBA) [of Kenya] has defied the Health ministry and announced field trials for GMO corn crops.
Plans for commercial cultivation of genetically modified maize in Kenya have been dealt a blow after a plants agency declined to give State scientists the green light to proceed with the exercise. It is clear that if anyone brings GMO’s into Kenya the public will not purchase them distrust is too high and social media allows them to see the rhetoric of hate people Like US President Donald Trump spout against Africans.Kenya’s rugged, hilly terrain is ideal for growing hemp a trillion dollar industry also hemp and marijuana cannot be grown together.
Hemp will grow anywhere without pesticides or herbicides and doesn’t compete for soil nutrients with other plants.Hemp is more viable than wood. You need just an acre of hemp to give you enough fibre pulp you would otherwise get from four acres of trees.Meanwhile, runaway deforestation in Kenya has taken a turn for the worse, compounded with unmitigated climate change phenomena.In fact, hemp restores the soil by breaking down harmful metals and consumes three times the carbon dioxide in the air.”
Perhaps the fear is Kenya and other African nations will turn to hemp and cut out the west in terms of profits allowing them to get out of debt and build their own.” economic base. According to Kenyan Environmental Author Alex Kanyi “…Anything made of plastic can be fashioned out of hemp.
This being a plastic-free environment movement era, the National Environment Management Authority ought to offer hemp-related alternatives to most Kenyans to dull the impact of the looming ban on plastic bottles and straws.Hemp cellulose can be molded into containers such as bottles, plates and cups or even poles and blocks.Finally, products made out of hemp are biodegradable — a big plus to the people, planet and profit cycle.For that, hemp should be given a chance to salvage a world choking on plastic.Mr Kanyi is the Global Forest Watch forest monitor in Kenya. email@example.com (send information requests to firstname.lastname@example.org)
