In India, GMO's Are a Life and Death MatterTim King Salem-News.com
India’s farmers commit suicide at a rate 47 percent higher than the rest of the population; Monsanto is a direct contributor and Prashant Bhushan, a human rights' lawyer now in power, needs to ban GMOs in Delhi.
(SALEM) - As Americans lead campaign after campaign to defeat the heavily funded expansion of laws allowing companies like Monsanto to push GMO (Genetically modified Food) into supermarkets, India, the place where thousands of farmers have committed suicide due to the GMO infestation from Monsanto, could soon see real change due to direct political activism.
The Global Research Centre on Globalization article, The Seeds Of Suicide: How Monsanto Destroys Farming, by Dr. Vandana Shiva, explains how Monsanto and its PR machinery directly link to,
Prashant Bhushan, a senior advocate of the Supreme Court, has been handling matters in regards to a Public Interest Litigation [PIL No 260] filed in 2005 to ban GMOs [seeds and foods] in India.
Arun Shrivastava made a huge effort to collect signatures from 6.5 million farmers from across eight states in India and submitted his impleadment in support of the PIL in April 2007. This massive campaign hit the alternative media but completely ignored by the mainstream2.
Prashant Bhushan joined the Aam Aadmi Party [Aam=Common, Aadmi= Man] that has formed a coalition government in Delhi with the same corrupt Congress Party against whom it'd fought an anti-corruption crusade for the past two years. AAP is led by Arwind Kejriwal and others who have been generously supported by the Ford Foundation and other international funding agencies. Kejriwal is a recipient of Rockefeller instituted Magsaysay Award.
Now that this "Pied Piper" is in power, it is the duty of Prashant Bhushan as a human rights' lawyer, to ban GMOs in Delhi. It is entirely up to this maverick lawyer to take on firms like Monsanto and the US Government headlong.
