Dark Side to Globalization: Chocolate and Child Slave Labor

Via: Wikipedia

The widespread use of children in cocoa production is controversial, not only for the usual concerns about child labor and exploitation, but also because up to 12,000 of the 200,000 children working in Côte d’Ivoire, the world’s biggest producer of cocoa,  may be victims of trafficking or slavery.  Most attention on this subject has focused on West Africa, which collectively supplies 69 percent of the world’s cocoa, and Côte d’Ivoire in particular, which supplies 35 percent of the world’s cocoa. Thirty percent of children under age 15 in sub-Saharan Africa are child laborers, mostly in agricultural activities including cocoa farming. It is estimated that more than 1.8 million children in West Africa are involved in growing cocoa. Major chocolate producers, such as Nestle, buy cocoa at commodities exchanges where Ivorian cocoa is mixed with other cocoa.

American Meat: Documentary

American Meat from MichaelHurwitzMusic on Vimeo.

American Meat is a solutions-oriented macroscopic documentary surveying the current state of the U.S. meat industry. Featuring, Joel Salatin, Chuck Wirtz, Fred Kirschenmann Steve Ells, Paul Willis, and tens of farmers across America, we take an even-handed look at animal husbandry.

American Meat explains how America arrived at our current industrial system, and shows the feedlots and confinement houses, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, we introduce the current revolution developing in animal husbandry, led by the charismatic and passionate Joel Salatin.

We meet tens of farmers across the country who have changed their life to start grass-based farms, and we highlight every day tangible solutions that people can take, to change agriculture in America.

Alex Jones is a ‘Dangerous Man’ to the ‘Powers That Be’

by John H. Richardson

The times have created this man, this nexus of patriotism and fear. Depending on who you talk to, he is a plague on or a tonic to our discourse, and we should all be horrified or grateful.
Even now, Alex Jones can’t relax. Two weeks after he enraged the entire country by naming the U. S. government as Suspect No. 1 in the bloody slaughter at the Boston Marathon, the radio host and avatar of modern American paranoia is on vacation with his family in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He goes to museums with his kids, takes in the Romanesque baths, laments the decay of the grand old hotels that drew high rollers like Al Capone and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, hikes up hillsides steamy with the mist from the natural hot springs that bubble right out of the rocks. But everywhere he looks there are fresh assaults on the American way of life, on liberty itself, and the raging radio voice that transforms him from a gentle family man into a ranting prophet keeps taking demonic possession of his soul. I know they’re going to try to use whatever crisis unfolds, all the different special interests, to sell thousands of robots at millions of dollars apiece in big cities and small towns. They’re going to sell armored vehicles and surveillance and data mining. They’re going to use it to try to take freedom and offer this lie that the government’s there to protect you and CAN protect you, but A, it can’t protect you, and B, it doesn’t WANT to protect you. It’s just a complete fraud! Look at Katrina! Look at Hurricane Sandy! FEMA put up signs saying, “Closed this week for bad weather!” IT’S ALL A JOKE!

Pharma Food: Pharmaceuticals engineered to grow in the food

Via: truthstreammedia.com

by Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton

“Philanthropic” causes self-appointed to look after the global good, including the Rockefeller Foundation and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, began funding the development of edible vaccines as far back as 1996. Ostensibly, this is to allow the poor and developing sectors of the world easy access to medicine in their food supply. A quick (and profitable) fix to save the planet!

In the real world, this is a dark twist on the old adage “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”

Private vaccine developers have worked aggressively to develop these genetically-engineered pharmaceuticals and put them on the shelf, hoping they will be part of a multi-billion dollar drug market. Government grants and agency support contributed towards their rapid creation in the first decade of the 21th Century, licensing corn fields and other test crop sites throughout the U.S. midwest and beyond – with pharmaceutical crops being grown in at least 11 states.

Firms like Prodigene and Epicyte were on the cutting edge of this new “pharming” paradigm, which created its own controversy. Prodigene was fined after two of its sites containing experimental drugs for HIV, hepatitis and other serious diseases accidentally contaminated some food crops headed for human consumption. Meanwhile, Epicyte raised eyebrows and anxious questions after developing contraceptive corn, an edible spermicide that produces sperm antibodies in both sexes.

Would you trust food aid if you knew the United States’ foreign policy declared “food as a weapon” back in 1974 in the unspoken war of controlling population in your country or one near you?

Would you believe in the bold claims that genetically-engineered enriched foods can deliver necessary nutrition and medicinal treatments, knowing the complications and risks of GMO foods that have already been documented?

Would you eat Pharma Flakes if they were marketed and sold to your family, and made a part of your ‘complete’ breakfast?

And what if your cereals and other food stocks weren’t even labeled? Would you really know what was in your food? And would you do anything about it if you found out the truth? Would you have eyes to see it for what it was, if it were population control?

The War On Healthy People

“Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship . . . denying equal privileges. All such laws are un-American and despotic . . . “ Benjamin Rush, Physician, Signer of Declaration of Independence

-”If you control the food supply, you control the people” – Henry Kissinger

Healthy, independent Americans who can think for themselves are going to oppose being exploited and robbed of their god given rights to life, liberty and property.

For this reason, your choice of foods and health decisions are being stealthily directed to controlled monopolies that can make your health a weapon they can use against you.

If The ‘Powers That Be’ have their way, They will have the power to destroy your health, destroy your independence and punish you for thinking for yourself.

They will control your food, your medical options and dictate to you  how to think.

 If you do not agree, they will make your life very unpleasant, painful and, if they so choose, very short!
