A WARNING FOR AFRICA : Biotech Ambassadors aggressively pushing for acceptance of GMO’s

23 Aug

Africa GMO warning
NaturalNews) “There is a lot of shady business going on in Africa these days, where so-called “biotech ambassadors” are now actively touring the continent and aggressively pushing for acceptance of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and other biotechnology interests. As explained in a groundbreaking new report published by GMWatch.org, pro-industry hacks, like British climate change activist Mark Lynas, are literally going around trying to force GMOs on African farmers, while at the same time relaying back bald-faced lies to Western nations about how GMOs are already saving lives and ending hunger throughout Africa.”

“The developed world has been spoon-fed the lies of the pro-GMO agenda for years. Without GMOs, we are constantly told, there would not be enough food to feed the planet, crop yields would be far lower and require heavier and more constant applications of pesticides and herbicides, and the whole of agriculture would collapse … ”

“Pro-GMO groups like the Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology in Africa (OFAB), which partners with the Africa Agricultural Technology Foundation (AATF) and the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications, are openly connected with other pro-GMO groups like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the “Big Five” biotechnology corporations, all of which endorse and promote Lynas’ work.”

“If this is not bad enough, Lynas has also spent much of his time in Africa and elsewhere spreading lies designed to bolster more support for GMOs. At a recent speaking engagement in Africa, for instance, Lynas tweeted on Twitter a little ditty about how GMOs are needed in Tanzania to protect cassava plants against viruses. In his tweet, Lynas claimed, “There are no conventional ways to achieve virus resistance,” which is completely untrue, as conventional, non-GM breeding methods already being used in that area have led to incredible success against viruses.”
