Steve Marsh has exhibited extraordinary courage - and he deserves our thanks - for having stood up to Monsanto in an effort to establish that organic farmers have a right to farm without invasion by Biotech contamination. "Henry Rowlands, the Global GMO Free Coalition Coordinator reacted Wednesday; “Steve Marsh is a great man to have stood up to what was obviously a Biotech industry funded legal campaign. It is a shame that the WA Supreme Court did not see beyond the arguments of the GMO and pesticide lobby in Western Australia." Jim

BREAKING NEWS! JUDGE DENIES JUSTICE FOR AUSTRALIAN ORGANIC FARMER STEVE MARSH IN LAWSUIT OVER MONSANTO GE CONTAMINATION.

Judgement Summary:

Rare explanations were seen picking up wines of the material and selling them as forties. http://houseofgirlsonline.org Wh why should many wars get worse fibrin?
 


In a ruling released just hours ago, in a case being monitored internationally, family farmers Steve & Susan Marsh of Kojonup, Western Australia, lost their claim for monetary damages and a permanent injunction to prevent future damage. The judge failed to recognize the decertification decision of organic certifier NASAA, and therefore ignored the extreme financial loss experienced by the Marshs caused when the GE contamination damaged and prevented full use of their farm.
The Marshs were forced to recover damages from their neighbor, Michael Baxter, because carefully crafted Monsanto Licensing Agreements absolve the notorious multinational biotech corporation from legal product liability and instead shifts all responsibility to Monsanto farmer-customers. The result of this denial of justice is that the Marshs face an uncertain future and their ability to continue farming lies in jeopardy.
The Marshs and their lawyers have 21 days in which to file an Appeal. This post's primary link is to the six-page Judgment Summary.

The detailed 150 page ruling itself may be found here: http://decisions.justice.wa.gov.au/supreme/supdcsn.nsf/PDFJudgments-WebVw/2014WASC0187/%24FILE/2014WASC0187.pdf

Outside-the-box thinking bringing health to patients and new business to local family farmers. In this case, the local farmer is a Somali immigrant, Hawa Ibrahim on Packard Farm in Lisbon, Maine. “'My goal has always been to empower patients to find health and take the best care of themselves,' Kenerson said. 'Oftentimes, patients say they can’t afford to eat healthy, or they’re just uneducated on cooking or nutrition in general. So our goal in starting this is to support our local farmers and our patients. Long-term, our goal is to have an actual farmers market in the Freeport office.'"

National political staffer Molly Ball gets some of it right but she has not done her homework and falls prey to Industrial Ag's crocodile tears 'I'm the victim here' false narrative. Still, how far we have come as the tide now shifts away from Biotech's death culture. "'I know dozens, personally, of scientists from all kinds of backgrounds—from neurobiologists to systems ecologists to entomologists—who have serious questions about [GMO] technology,' Doug Gurian-Sherman, senior scientist for the Union of Concerned Scientists, told me recently...But if GMO proponents have a credibility problem, it’s largely self-inflicted. Many of today’s aggressive proponents of GMO science were yesterday’s global-warming deniers...In 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama made a vague campaign pledge to 'let folks know whether their food has been genetically modified.' But the Obama Administration’s line on labeling has been closer to the food industry’s talking points...'I talk to Tea Party people, Occupy people, churches, everybody,' he says. 'Everywhere I go, all parts of the state, people want labeling. There are very few people who don’t want to have a say in this issue...'" Jim

NEW STUDY SHOWS AMAZON GROWTH BENEFITED BY GOVERNMENT FAVORITISM AND PREFERENTIAL TAX TREATMENT.

Mainer Stacy Mitchell explains the losers include shuttered Main Street businesses. "That sales tax still matters this much to Amazon’s fortunes is quite remarkable. One might imagine that the company’s size and efficiency, its vast online marketplace and formidable distribution logistics, would be more than enough to outrun its competitors. But in fact, not having to collect sales tax in most states still provides a significant competitive edge, even at this late date...But this study reveals what Jeff Bezos has undoubtedly known for years: Amazon’s success, its track record of shuttering local businesses, is as much a product of government favoritism as it is of its own ingenuity....the online giant is still exempt in more than half the states and continues to devote considerable energy and financial resources to maintaining that status. This new study makes it abundantly clear why. As one of the study’s authors told the New York Times, 'I think this is their dirty little secret, something they’ve never been forthright about it — the extent to which this sales tax advantage has benefited them.'

Reasonable French suspicion of GE crops serve as impetus to protect their citizens. "'This law aims to give a legal framework to our country, to ensure that a ban is applied,' the French agriculture minister, Stephane Le Foll, told the Senate at the start of the debate. France adopted a decree in March halting the sowing of Monsanto's insect-resistant MON810 maize, the sole GMO crop allowed for cultivation in the European Union."

Dr. Vrain retired from Ag Canada twelve years ago at a time when the "human genome project" was providing scientists with a heightened understanding of genetics. "The human genome is more complicated than we had assumed." After a career as a leading genetic scientist - and "fervent believer" in GE crops - Dr. Vrain has transformed his views and is now a leading scientist-lecturer warning about the dangers of GE crops, GE food and Monsanto's glyphosate. This audio interview (54:26) by Food Integrity Now's Carol Grieve is MUST LISTEN! The tide is turning thanks to courageous scientists like Dr. Vrain who are alerting the public to our massive problem of flawed GE technology. Jim

Bangor news story (3:28) explores the pollution burden from Biotech's faulty GE crops. "Pollen drift is something several Maine farmer’s could face. 'We understand the biology involved because pollen will go off site and what we’re concerned about as seed growers and organic growers is that genetically engineered pollen will come on to our farm and contaminate our crops and ruin them'...Despite political and economic challenges, Gerritsen says organic farming has great potential in the future. 'I think organic farming excels in benefits for the people, for the environment, and for the planet. And taken in that way I think organic has a natural advantage as to when its looked at objectively.'

HOW WALMART'S DESIGNS WILL REDUCE YOUR FAMILY'S ACCESS TO AUTHENTIC ORGANIC FOOD.

Valuable article examines Walmart's historical pattern of torpedoing independent business and fostering corporate consolidation and off-shore sourcing. "Alarm bells should be ringing now that Walmart is going organic. One Walmart executive explains it will 'disrupt' the organic market by reducing inefficiencies and encouraging consolidation. Lower prices for consumers mean fewer organic farmers, declining farm incomes and agricultural wages, and remaining farmers will be forced to industrialize further to produce more goods at lower prices...Case in point is Horizon Milk, which controls 40 percent of the organic milk market and crowds the shelves of many Walmarts. For nearly a decade the Wisconsin-based Cornucopia Institute has been filing formal complaints against Horizon’s parent company, Dean Foods, charging it with running huge concentrated animal feeding operations that violate federal organic standards, using conventionally raised heifers in its operations, and adding illegal additives to its milk. These practices allegedly enable it to undersell small organic milk producers, pushing them out of business." Jim

MONSANTO MERITS MAINE'S MISTRUST.

The Portland Press Herald delves into Monsanto's malevolent impact on our independent state. "More recently, there’s the story of those family farmers who sued Monsanto in 2011 to gain protection from being sued themselves, should Monsanto product blow onto their land and sprout. Many plaintiffs were involved, but the lead organization was the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association. President Jim Gerritsen is a potato farmer from Bridgewater, near Presque Isle, who doubles as a sort of walking Google when it comes to matters involving Monsanto. A passionate proponent of organic farming, he’s been suspicious of genetically engineered seed technology for nearly three decades. From the vantage point of far northern Maine, he has trained an eagle eye on Monsanto, keeping track of any and all potentially nefarious activities and become a national leader of the movement in the process...'When it comes to agriculture, when we get contaminated by chemicals or (genetically engineered) material, it’s like saying, ‘You didn’t have a big enough lock on your front door,’ he said."

WILL WALMART BE THE KISS OF DEATH FOR ORGANIC?

Corporate invasion of organic has been underway for sometime but now black widow Walmart and their calculated greenwashing entry spell unprecedented danger for organic eaters and organic family farmers. Mainer Stacy Mitchell of the Insitute for Local Self-Reliance explains. "...Walmart is not legitimizing organic foods so much as using organic foods to legitimize its own business model....Walmart is once again struggling with its image....Walmart is a growth machine. It’s not interested in being a better company, only in being a bigger one...Walmart’s rise as a grocer has had the effect of making conventional food production more concentrated and industrialized than ever before — a trend it will surely bring to organics...Indeed, no company has done quite as much in the last 20 years to undermine the broad middle class and expand poverty."

WHEN SCIENTISTS ACT AS ATTACK DOGS FOR BIOTECH.

Monday, 28 April 2014 Category Potatoes in History 0 Comments

Have we entered a scientific dark age in which an unmistakeable atmosphere of intimidation discourages important scientific inquiry? This eye-opening article from 2009 provides valuable insight into a troubling pattern. "...those who, like Rosi-Marshall and her colleagues, suggest that biotech crops might have harmful environmental effects are learning to expect attacks of a different kind. These strikes are launched from within the scientific community and can sometimes be emotional and personal; heated rhetoric that dismisses papers and can even, as in Rosi-Marshall's case, accuse scientists of misconduct. 'The response we got — it went through your jugular,' says Rosi-Marshall. Behind the attacks are scientists who are determined to prevent papers they deem to have scientific flaws from influencing policy-makers.... 'People who look into safety issues and pollination and contamination issues get seriously harassed'....'I do have problems with the tactics of the large block of scientists who denigrate research by other legitimate scientists in a knee-jerk, partisan, emotional way that is not helpful in advancing knowledge and is outside the ideals of scientific inquiry'....Ignacio Chapela, a microbial ecologist at the University of California, Berkeley, says that the attacks may be deterring young scientists from pursuing careers in biotech crop research. 'I have a very long experience now with young people coming to me to say that they are not going into this field precisely because they are discouraged by what they see,' he says." Jim

What our country needs are leaders which remind us that the people are capable of monumental change if we will demonstrate focus and fidelity. MOFGA is one such leader. "Do you know where the largest and oldest state organic organization is in the Unites States? It’s in Maine! The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), formed in 1971, is the country’s longest existing and biggest state organic organization in the country. MOFGA mission is to help farmers and gardeners: grow organic food, fiber and other crops; protect the environment; recycle natural resources; increase local food production; support rural communities; and illuminate for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound farming practices." We've been MOFGA members for almost 40 years. We join thousands of others helping MOFGA make lasting change inside and outside of Maine. Jim & Megan

The new calculated PR campaign is designed to show the 'softer' concocted side of Monsanto. "After decades of employing a 'block-us-and-we'll-sue-you' approach, Monsanto recently began an intense makeover PR campaign: popularity by association. Monsanto is cozying up to the reputation, authenticity and wholesomeness of family farmers -- and hoping the all-American nostalgia many associate with the small scale farmer rubs off on them. During the Super Bowl, key media markets saw Monsanto's 'It Begins with a Farmer' commercials, which were intended to demonstrate that the company shares the same values as family farmers and the consumers they feed and clothe...Monsanto has undertaken an unprecedented litigation campaign against American farmers to end the practice of seed-saving and so maximize its profits. They devote $10 million of its annual budget to investigate approximately 500 farmers each year who are suspected of patent infringement...While Monsanto has taken action against thousands of farmers, only the vast majority reach pre-trial settlements to avoid facing the multinational giant in court. When these pretrial settlements are included, farmers have paid Monsanto an estimated $85 to 160 million." Jim

OUTRAGEOUS BIOTECH ATTEMPT TO BUY ANOTHER ELECTION 'VICTORY' IN JACKSON COUNTY, OREGON.

Six weeks from now - on May 20 - voters in southern Oregon's Jackson County will go to the polls to vote on County Measure 15-119 which would allow organic and non-GE farmers to protect themselves from contamination by banning the growing of GE crops in the county. This protective measure is a legitimate local control option made necessary by intransigent Big Ag which feels it should be unrestrained in its polluting activity of growing GE crops like RR sugar beet seed. Among the supporters of 15-119 are OSGATA members both in Jackson County and elsewhere in Oregon. Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow and other out-of-state pesticide and Biotech companies have already raised almost $800,000 to defeat 15-199. That is FIVE TIMES more cash than the total spending for ALL Jackson County ballot measure on record, COMBINED! Our allies need our help. Please learn more from the 'Our Family Farms Coalition' website and join us in making a donation. Thanks! Jim & Megan
