Food wars are many, hope you don't mind if I add related updates.

Thx for this post

Thank you 99nproud, for your contribution here. Participation and the sharing of info, is what will save us.

Many good links including The Open Source Seed Initiative .

Grew up in S.Cal, and relate well with the nostalgic photo links.

Cali has been at the forefront of food justice for a long time and much as it hurts to say they have led the little progressive momentum that we've seen.

I mean until OWS.

Signed. Good petition.

Small effort, combined w/ street action, boycotts, even voting WILL move us closer to our goals.

Coalescing with like minded groups increases our power exponentially.

Let's coalesce.

Good to know. Hope people are visiting this thread.

Not a lot of comments here for sure.

But you never know when someone might lift their head up from the inconsequential, partisan, flame wars, or the endless debates on this ism or that ism & consider a real issue that affects people.

I bump it (& other important issue) to tempt whoever (not many I know) might wander by.

Thx for the post. Food is certainly a high priority for me.

Thank you 99nproud. Nice to see GMO labeling progress. But now, nanoparticles. It really is a Food War.

[-] 4 points by 99nproud (1621) 1 month ago

I know right. We don't have enough to worry/fight about, now we gotta figure out if nano particles are ok.

I'm gonna vote no until I learn more.

[-] 2 points by Nevada1 (3985) 1 month ago

Another good link. Everyone needs to see this.

[-] 2 points by Nevada1 (3985) 4 weeks ago

This is good.

[-] 1 points by 99nproud (1621) 3 weeks ago

And it should be bumped 'often and hard' so people are reminded, encouraged, inspired, & informed,

Peace

Food wars update

http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2014/jul/04/us-el-salvador-open-seed-market

Just a little something to get the topic in our face, hoping supporters read & act.

Sounds like El Salvador has been doing the right things with agriculture and environment. Getting mixed up with Monsanto/USG would be the wrong thing.

[-] 1 points by 99nproud (1621) 3 weeks ago

That El Salvador can make any successful effort away from a western/US entity after probably a century of US/western domination war and exploitation is truly amazing.

Maybe a small step but certainly forward. That's different.

In related news - the party of the elites ( ummmmm - well - most overtly controlled by ) continues the hostage taking/coercion for profit program:

This July 4th weekend, millions of Americans used highways to visit friends and family. Maybe you were one of them.

On your way home, you weren't worried that the you'd spin out on a giant crack in the interstate. That's because federal government helps fund repairs and upgrades. No responsible politician would let the highway fund go broke.

Yet that's exactly what conservatives are doing. They've blocked the highway bill unless we give a tax amnesty to a handful of corporations that stashed profits overseas.

That's unfair to those of you who paid your share. Worse, blocking the highway fund will put millions in danger and cost an estimated 700,000 jobs.

The only reason conservatives do this is that they think they can get away with it. Can you contribute a few dollars to help put a stop to this extortion?
