Thanks salem-news for bringing this to my attention. I cant keep up with it all anymore..thanks. Anyway, the department of biodiversity conservation is owned by the CSIC, from Spain, which only shares their information in spanish. The VEA however, translates into english. Both departments are nothing more than an overall world program (thru the U.N.)promoting Agenda 21. You need to study what agenda 21 is, but in a paragraph, to herd us all into cities, (8 x 8 rooms), to control us, with GMO food, what we eat, the water, smart meters controlling and watching what you do at home etc. Remember that movie with Bruce Willis called, the fifth element? Remember where Bruce lived? That is a picnic compared to what they have planned for humanity. I have come to the conclusion, that this has been going on too long while the sheep slept, and not feeling too good about it getting any better. But I still think we have an obligation to share this information while it is still allowed to be shared. May God be with us, and our humanity that He created.
