Here is an article I found while looking for info in "Monsanto and the New World Order". It's from India dated 1999.

The Hindu,
Saturday, May 01, 1999
By Vandana Shiva, Director of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, New Delhi.

Monsanto ventures into new industry

OVER THE past few years, Monsanto, a chemical firm, has positioned
itself as an agricultural company through control over seed - the first
link in the food chain. Monsanto now wants to control water, the very
basis of life. In 1996, Monsanto bought the biotechnology assets of
Agracetus, a subsidiary of W. R. Grace, for $150 million and Calgene, a
California-based plant biotechnology company for $340 million. In 1997,
Monsanto acquired Holden seeds, the Brazilian seed company, Sementes
Agrocerus and Asgrow. In 1998, it purchased Cargill's seed operations
for $1.4 billion and bought Delta and Pine land for $1.82 billion and
Dekalb for $2.3 billion. In India, Monsanto has bought MAHYCO,
Maharashtra Hybrid Company, EID Parry and Rallis. Mr. Jack Kennedy of
Monsanto has said, "we propose to penetrate the Indian agricultural
sector in a big way. MAHYCO is a good vehicle."According to Mr. Robert
Farley of Monsanto, "what you are seeing is not just a consolidation of
seed companies, it's really a consolidation of the entire food chain.
Since water is as central to food production as seed is, and without
water life is not possible, Monsanto is now trying to establish its
control over water. During 1999, Monsanto plans to launch a new water
business, starting with India and Mexico since both these countries are
facing water shortages."

Monsanto is seeing a new business opportunity because of the emerging
water crisis and the funding available to make this vital resource
available to people. As it states in its strategy paper, "first, we
believe that discontinuities (either major policy changes or major
trendline breaks in resource quality or quantity) are likely,
particularly in the area of water and we will be well-positioned via
these businesses to profit even more significantly when these
discontinuities occur. Second, we are exploring the potential of
non-conventional financing (NGOs, World Bank, USDA, etc.) that may lower
our investment or provide local country business-building resources."
Thus, the crisis of pollution and depletion of water resources is viewed
by Monsanto as a business opportunity. For Monsanto, "sustainable
development" means the conversion of an ecological crisis into a market
of scarce resources. "The business logic of sustainable development is
that population growth and economic development will apply increasing
pressure on natural resource markets. These pressures and the world's
desire to prevent the consequences of these pressures, if unabated, will
create vast economic opportunity - when we look at the world through the
lens of sustainability, we are in a position to see current and foresee
impending-resource market trends and imbalances that create market
needs. We have further focussed this lens on the resource market of
water and land. These are the markets that are most relevant to us as a
life sciences company committed to delivering food, health and hope to
the world, and there are markets in which there are predictable
ustainability challenges and therefore opportunities to create business
value."Monsanto plans to earn revenues of $420 million and a net income
of $63 million by 2008 from its water business in India and Mexico. By
2010, about 2.5 billion people in the world are projected to lack access
to safe drinking water. At least 30 per cent of the population in China,
India, Mexico and the U.S. is expected to face severe water stress. By
2025, the supply of water in India will be 700 cubic km per year, while
the demand is expected to rise to 1,050 units.Control over this scarce
and vital resource will, of course, be a source of guaranteed profits.
As John Bastin of the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development
has said, "Water is the last infrastructure frontier for private
investors." Monsanto estimates that providing safe water is a several
billion dollar market. It is growing at 25 to 30 per cent in rural
communities and is estimated to rise to $300 million by 2000 in India
and Mexico. This is the amount currently spent by NGOs for water
evelopment projects and local government water supply schemes and
Monsanto hopes to tap these public finances for providing water to rural
communities and convert water supply into a market. The Indian
Government spent over $1.2 billion between 1992 and 1997 for various
water projects, while the World Bank spent $900 million.Monsanto would
like to divert this public money from public supply of water to
establishing the company's water monopoly. Since in rural areas the
poor cannot pay, in Monsanto's view capturing a piece of the value
created for this segment will require the creation of a non-traditional
mechanism targeted at building relationships with local government and
NGOs as well as through mechanisms such as microcredit.Monsanto also
plans to penetrate the Indian market for safe water by establishing a
joint venture with Eureka Forbes/Tata, which controls 70 per cent of the
UV Technologies. To enter the water business, Monsanto has acquired an
equity stake in Water Health International (WHI) with an option to buy
the rest of the business. The joint venture with Tata/Eureka Forbes
is supposed to provide market access and fabricate, distribute, service
water systems; Monsanto will leverage their brand equity in the Indian
market. The joint venture route has been chosen so that "Monsanto can
achieve management control over local operations but not have legal
consequences due to local issues." Another new business that Monsanto is
starting in 1999 in Asia is aquaculture. It will build on the foundation
of Monsanto's agricultural biotechnology and capabilities for fish
feedand fish breeding. By 2008, Monsanto expects to earn revenues of
$1.6 billion and a net income of $266 million from its aquaculture
business. While Monsanto's entry into aquaculture is through its
sustainable development activity, industrial aquaculture has been
established to be highly non-sustainable. The Supreme Court has banned
industrial shrimp farming because of its catastrophic consequences.
However, the Government, under pressure from the aquaculture industry,
is attempting to change the laws to undo the court order. At the same
time, attempts are being made by the World Bank to privatise water
resources and establish trade in water rights. These trends will suit
Monsanto well in establishing its water and aquaculture businesses.

The Bank has already offered to help. As the Monsanto strategy paper
states:
"We are particularly enthusiastic about the potential of partnering
with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank to
joint venture projects in developing markets. The IFC is eager to work
with Monsanto to commercialise sustainability opportunities and would
bring both investment capital and on-the-ground capabilities to our
efforts."
Monsanto's water and aquaculture businesses, like its seed business,
aimed at controlling the vital resources necessary for survival,
converting them into a market and using public finances to underwrite
the investments. A more efficient conversion of public goods into
private profit would be difficult to find. Water is, however, too basic
for life and survival and the right to it is the right to
life.Privatisation and commodification of water are a threat to the
right to life. India has had major movements to conserve and share
water. The pani panchayat and the water conservation movement in
Maharashtra and the Tarun Bharat Sangh in Alwar have regenerated and
equitably shared water as a commons property. This is the only way
everyone will have the right to water and nobody will have the right to
abuse and overuse water. Water is a commons and must be managed as a
commons. It cannot be controlled and sold by a life sciences corporation
that peddles in death.

I for one am not going to stand idly by while these people illegally gain control of things against the American constitution. This is a total insanity that needs to be stopped. cults areusually run by dangerous meglomaniacs and I don't see any difference here. Do we hear what is being said? Are we going to allow this to happen? If not we need to say no early on before they become entrenched and the filth is so deeply ingrained that we canot scrub it out.Thank you Scott for this insightful article.

I'll just quote two of the many facts from this excellent documentary that should be known by everyone :

97% of the varieties of vegetables grown at the beginning of the 19th century are now extinct !

And monocultures make crops more vulnerable to insects and disease.

I'll just quote two of the many facts from this excellent documentary that should be known by everyone :

"97% of the varieties of vegetables grown at the beginning of the 19th century are now extinct !"
This is just terrible - Imagine if the same thing were true for animals, people'd really take notice. But these vegetables are as important to our biodiversity as trees, water and animals, yet it is a little-known fact !

And "monocultures make crops more vulnerable to insects and disease."
The potato blight in Ireland wiped out 1 million people, yet in Peru, with more than one potato variety produced, the consequences of blight of one variety were not catastrophic.

Btw, the other reason the potato blight killed so many in Ireland is simply because the Irish were reduced to eating only potatoes by English trade policy : there was other good food being produced in Ireland, such as meat, in the form of lambs, for example, but England sent it all to England. The potato blight alone shouldn't have caused starvation, had the Irish been able to eat the other things they produced !
 

Lydia S (71)
Monday March 24, 2008, 2:02 am
Jill Gabs -- You are indeed right ... The Irish starved because the English CONTROLLED the food supply -- this is what makes this takeover of seeds and food so frightening. It MUST be made illegal! Monsanto DID NOT "MAKE" the seeds, so they have NO RIGHT to "patent" them! They also did not create water, so they have no business trying to control it!

Corporations will stoop to the lowest level for their bottom line. DISGUSTING PARASITES!
 

Gaias Son Aiki (40)

There are some independant seed companies left - Seeds of Change, Seed Savers, Native Seeds/SEARCH, Peaceful Valley, Territorial - who deal in heirloom, open-pollinated seeds, the kind where when you plant them, you not only know what you are growing but you can save seeds to plant next year. There are also many seed-saving clubs where members swap out old-fashioned seeds, and most of these clubs are free. You pay only the postage on the seeds you ask for. Organic gardening books can be checked out of public libraries. Tools can be shared, as can labor. Everyone with a piece of land or even a few large pots can be growing plants and saving seeds, if not to feed yourself, then to feed the future.

thank you Scott ~ hopefully people will begin to understand what has been happening and is now extremely dangerous. I know when I have mentioned this to people over the last few years they have simply dismissed any concern. I find it sad that so many no longer take any responsibility to think for themselves let alone make the effort to look out for themselves, family, and friends. There is so much that we will most likely never know about.This is such a crime and saddens me deeply. I used to work in my yard a lot and would see the affects on the toads, earthworms, terrapins over the years yet none of that seemed to bother anyone around me. Scary when people dismiss reality.

I can't watch that thing just now - it's with an overwhelming sense of hopelessness that I read the headline. As a vegan and animal rights activist, I have tried for the past 12 years to make animal rights groups, other activists, and stores (Knoxville Community Food Co-Op, now Three Rivers Market in Knoxville, TN; the French Broad Food Co-Op in Asheville, NC, Earth Fare in Asheville, NC and Dean's Market in Ocean, NJ) to make information like this known. To me it all began with the massive buyouts/sellouts of veg food companies to multinational corporations. When Farm Bureau owns French Meadow bakeries, it pretty much signals horror. Since the organic companies are owned by multinationals, the multis have been able to alter the definition of "organic" and lobby to keep changing or altering the definition so they can spend less money while earning much more - after all, the public has proven it is willing to pay more for organic.
Anyway, this is appalling. I love Vandana Shiva, by the way, whoever posted that article from her.
Which reminds me - the global south also seems to be the testing grounds for what the corporations can do without fear of reprisals from the western world.
Bleh.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY .I WILL INFORM SOME WHO DON"T KNOW WHY. they have now found that former harmless gmo food did not cross our cell into the mitocrondia well now studies have confirmed they sure do. Lets imagine you are eating corn that is GMO and has been engineered to produce a toxic pesticide to kill of insects as it grows. Well now that that gene can cross over into you cells you may have a belly full of insecticide that was produced in the soupy culture of your stomach. We need to use all our availiable power to stop these man eating co's from using us as garbage disposals and caring zero about the human health. I bet they dont even eat non GMO food. I feel sorry for the people who cant sometimes get organic veggies and fruit its getting smaller all the time while they wait for us to die off from complications of GMO foods chris

Thanks Scott for your eye opening post. To boycott Mansanto products is one way to help as an individual and also to tell everyone you know what is happening by spreading this information is another way! I agree with many here that Monsanto needs to be stopped as well as many other corporations who are too big and too powerful! This is insane what they have been doing to us and our governments are guilty for letting them do it. When corporations and/or governments have way too much power and use it as a means to take control over anything or anyone they want or need then the whole world suffers and I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg. I have been telling people I know for some time now that GMO foods are dangerous. I wish more people would take this seriously as we are running out of time. Every day we hear and learn about catastrophes regarding our fragile environment. We really need a miracle of some kind to help heal our world.

ANYone whom has there hands on old seeds passed down in family need to hold on to them.. Grown and keep seeds for next years growth... At least 1/4 of the gardens seeds need to be saved ! For future to ba able to have un bio'd chemical altered foods ! Any one that has money to buy un patented foods need to beat Mosanto and companies like them to the punch line ! Or future of Growing food wiill be halted because they will say No..BUy our food supply, we own the patent ! It insures them of money always !

Awful that man thinks they own what GOD made...
God will repay them in their end !

Brian, do you get paid by Monsanto? Because you lack any basis explanation for your seemingly strong opinions about it and you ignore every argument against it. Not that I have a problem with people who are pro GMO. Its just that there seems something off with your way of defending that gives the feel with it that you are not someone just stating in opinion. The closed attitude, the not replying when someone completely debunked what you just said and in stead posting the same thing again somewhere else, the level of activity in especially Monsanto topics as opposed to others. Just asking, not implying? Are you?

No I do not get paid by Monsanto, though that is a common accusation tossed out by weak minded lackeys for Big Organic who not having a rational argument resort to insults. I do not get paid by Monsanto. I am not an employee of Monsanto. I have no association with any biotech firm nor have I ever. Do you ever feel like you are the one who has a closed mind and just aren't willing to take a look at all the science and not just the quack crap that agrees with your ideological agenda?

If you don't then sorry I asked. But its just that the way of defending looks so similar to this marketing people style with the I lost 100 punds with this! And then someone replies with I didn't, and a scientific thingie about how it doesn't work and why it doesn't work, and then that person ignores all that, creates a new topic, and starts all over. I don't know, its just the style of commenting and action you show that made me ask it.
