EU attempting to outlaw heirloom seed.

http://www.infiniteunknown.net/2013/04/23/red-alert-eu-wants...

"The European Commission is working on a revision of the European seed market in the form of a regulation. Thus, a decision of the European Court is legalized in July 2012: Farmers are allowed to sell only officially authorized seed. So far, old and rare seed varieties were excluded that were grown in long standing economic and exchange traded, usually in small quantities. If it goes to the Commission’s plans, small farmers or private persons may not even give away their homegrown seeds in the future."

PLEASE join the WORLDWIDE March Against Monsanto, May 25. I am a small farmer, I WANT to feed you wholesome feed. Please stand for my right to do so.

This is too much. Outlawed in even private gardens.

That's what it's coming to, everything STANDARDIZED. When everything is UNIFORM, it's just so much easier to CONTROL!

wow.

that is insane. I will find out about the march in Austin. I am sure there will be a good showing here...

Thanks!

The people of several nations have stood down Monsanto, it is our turn.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Nestle Wants To Patent Fennel

Imagine if the big corporations start owning ALL the seeds in the world. Fennel grows wild in some places and Nestle wants to OWN IT ALL! Water too!

skippy

N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestles makes the very best....

pro---fits....
They were tired of Monsanto getting all the attention as "the world's most evil corporation."

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

LOL

Aren't cannabis seeds patented?

Don't growers patent their pot?

How do you patent pot,

How do you patent pot, really???

No but

they do come up with interesting strand names.

If Monsanto comes out with a strain, I swear by God that I will rid their product from Washington State.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Why not do it now?

Why not write an inniative for your county now? http://www.organicconsumers.org/ge/mendocino031104.cfm

Halfway down the article:

">From the start, the measure was a grassroots effort in a sparsely
populated county that grows none of the current varieties of biotech
plants. Locals say Mendocino County's biggest cash crop is undoubtedly
marijuana."

I call that a small victory.

I'm actually in the works of starting a small hemp business, Granger. Unfortunately, I have to convince the Federal Government to give me my Veterans Small Business loan, and they won't like the fact that THC (albeit a very, very small amount) will be involved. I'm sure the DEA/FDA will chime in during negotiations, if I can get that far.

Did you take part in distributing that petition?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

No

I wish I could say that I was. I moved here quite by accident, was only going camping, and once I was here, everything opened up to me.. it was like all the work I had done.. God gave me some fruit for my labor.. I didn't even know about the cash crop, but was very well aware of SoCA being I worked on Prop 214 in 94 and in 96 dropped out, didn't vote for it..

I think the article is kinda funny about the "biggest cash crop". Are there any others?

That's how you are able to

That's how you are able to get a non GMO law on the books, there are no other crops!!! (none to speak of)!

That's scary as hell. I was

That's scary as hell. I was just noticing a few months ago that Heirloom seeds were getting harder and harder to find at the gardening centers.

Well, I cant wait to hear

Well, I cant wait to hear Nigel Farrage rip into these people over this. It always brightens my day to listen to him, a true bulldog of politics.

Anyway, lets keep enlightening the people. The more people are aware, the more suspicious they will get every time the government pulls this kind of crap.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Farage is awesome.

I've only listened to 3 of his speeches and one interview, but I'll never forget this one:

1933 Ukraine famine anyone!!!!!!

they took the seed too, no one stopped them. This is exactly why the line in the sand must be drawn and let no one cross it. Hold onto your guns at all cost.

Not surprised

My father-in-law, who by the way is a really good guy, has made similar comments although he is aware that food isn't made in grocery stores. My wife and I are have stores of food, non perishable food and supplies stored away just in case of emergencies. I think we've got a few months of water, food and other supplies. My wife suggested that he do the same but his reply was "Why? Wont I be able to go to the market?" We had to explain to him the reality of shortages if natural or man made emergencies cause local, regional or wide spread panic. We have a garden and teach our kids about growing their own food, making bread and providing for yourself.

I would like to see then try

I would like to see then try to enforce this one. They arnt going to be able to force people to follow this because they wont be able to prove where anyone got their seed from.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Unfortunately no, the system does not work like that.

YOU will have to prove where you got the seed. Not them. Your assumed guilty until you prove yourself innocent. Just look at the attack on hydroponics shops.

These idiots just keep

These idiots just keep getting more and more insane and most folks are just completely oblivious. Food comes from the grocery store don't you know? Farms what what are farms? If we ever needed a Galts Gulch it is now...

In the back of my mind I have a suspicion it is part of the eugenics plan to starve out the population by destroying the earth eco system and then replanting with all the seed in the Norwegian seed vaults... This is why they are preparing to go underground. I know it's out there and it doesn't make sense but nothing these psychopaths do makes sense.

They will probably kill the earth in the process and not be able to bring it back if this is their insane plan... Hows that for a conspiracy theory? ;)

last fall we were canning,our daughter has a friend over
she asked why we were canning food,as we could just go to the store
and buy more
so,i asked her this question,do you think them stores grow their
vegetables in the back room and then can them to buy?
she looked at me like i was the stupid one,you know,for not knowing
that in fact the stores did do it that way
also made me wonder about her parents in the process

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Unfortunately there is no

Unfortunately there is no shortage of stupid these days!
