The terrible murder of the much-loved Labour MP, Jo Cox, on Thursday, has been distastefully and disgracefully hijacked by those desperately scrabbling for a link between her killer, Thomas Mair, and the Leave campaign in the EU referendum. Whether or not this shooting turns out to be a false flag, we don’t yet know. But it can certainly be filed under the heading of “never let a good opportunity go to waste” for the Remain campaign, which has enormous governmental and media resources at its disposals, but which, nevertheless, has been floundering badly in the polls.

Another day, another skeleton falls out the TTIP closet – and this one’s a doozy! Remember when the banks deliberately crashed the world’s economy with toxic derivatives in 2008? Now it turns out that Obama wants to use the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership treaty to prevent the megabanks from having to pay out when sued on this scam by investors, and to get us, the people, through the rulings of a secret court, to pay the massive fines instead.
I’m sure we’ll be more than happy to stump up for that, while eating our unlabelled GM foods and dying through not being able to afford the privatised healthcare.
Nice one, Obama! Watch you don’t slip on that banana skin!

As the TTIP leaks have gradually unfolded over the last few days, it’s become abundantly clear that there is only one option for anyone who wants to keep genetically modified foods out of the Britain. That is to vote to leave the European Union in the upcoming referendum on June 23rd.
We used to have a feeling of security about the EU’s attitude to GMs. We believed that being part of Europe would protect us from our own ministers in Britain who are trying to bring them in. Unfortunately, that’s turning out to be a feeling of false security, which was already unravelling fast before last weekend’s leaks of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership treaty. Here’s why: Continue reading

The United States is threatening nations who oppose Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) crops with military-style trade wars, according to information obtained and released by the organization WikiLeaks. Nations like France, which have moved to ban one of Monsanto’s GM corn varieties, were requested to be ‘penalized’ by the United States for opposing Monsanto and genetically modified foods.
The information reveals just how deep Monsanto’s roots have penetrated key positions within the United States government, with the cables reporting that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto. Continue reading
This article is not from a swivel-eyed conspiracy rag, unless we consider the Daily Mail as such. On The Holistic Works, we’ve been pointing out the same thing for years … and have even produced a specially-created app which is free of charge and that gives you GM information about thousands of foods on sale in the UK – including those that are GM, and those that contain meat and dairy from animals fed on GM-feed. You can download our free Shop GMO-Free in the UK app here. Continue reading
(Rome, Monday 15 February, 2016) Just when the biotech companies that make transgenic seeds are merging, the corporate vision of biotechnology is showing up at FAO.
At today’s opening of the three-day international symposium on agricultural biotechnologies convened by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, more than 100 social movement and civil society organisations (CSOs) from four continents have issued a statement denouncing both the substance and structure of the meeting, which appears to be another attempt by multinational agribusiness to redirect the policies of the UN agency toward support for genetically-engineered crops and livestock.

Today I heard that certain members of the European Commission were expressing concern, after the Greek referendum No vote, that the ‘contagion of democracy’ may spread further to other countries.
It’s when this sort of sentiment trickles out from what is in effect an unelected, unaccountable and unaudited ruling junta of non-tax paying billionaires that we can start to see the writing on the wall. Then we begin to realise that letters, petitions and protest marches will do nothing to change their minds in the voting on TTIP today because few of them are interested in what we think; they’re not even pretending that we live under a democracy anymore.

Currently, all food producers selling their products in the UK are legally required to list on the package label when it contains GM ingredients … but all that is set to change under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
When TTIP passes through Parliament into law here – I’m not saying ‘if’ because of how much MPs are being bribed to pass it – GM foods will come flooding into our supermarkets and the packets won’t be labelled. This is because there will no longer be any law to say they should be. The British public is already being mentally prepared by heavily-biased propaganda television programmes and as we speak, Monsanto is planning on moving to Britain, no doubt to be better placed to mop up all the tax-free breaks on this new windfall.

Britain’s Minister for the Environment Owen Paterson has acted against the wishes of the British people by encouraging legislation to allow GM crops to be legally sown in Britain. This change has now gone through, meaning that GM crops can now be legally sown in Britain, probably within the year… and how soon after that will GM foods start flooding into the shops?
Paterson is not representing the view of the British people in Brussels, but the interests of Monsanto and other biotech companies. However, the British people are not being told about this change in the mainstream media.
Why did we decide to develop our app, Shop GMO-Free in the UK? It began when we started to become aware that Monsanto and other biotech food producers were infiltrating our shopping aisles in Britain via stealth. In addition, food containing meat or dairy from animals fed on GM feed don’t have to be listed as GM on the labels, and all the UK supermarkets have announced that it can no longer guarantee that its animal products, such as meat and dairy, come from animals fed on non-GM soya.
We were originally alerted by this press release, which showsed how our government is hand-in-glove with the GM agenda, and will be pushing to get public acceptance for taxpayers’ money to be spent on the development of GM crops here.
