9:03 am
we're still talking about the ninety nine percent versus the one percent we're talking about corporations having great info. as well as wealth inequality that continues to remain in countries throughout the world in the united states but also when it comes to the situation with monsanto all of these issues continue to apply so while while all of the occupy wall street movement was certainly a more general outrage at the way the system runs this particular march and these events that are taking place throughout the weekend i directed at a specific corporation having a very controversial reputation there known to a harassed farmers throughout the world to sue farmers for example in the united states and canada for tens of thousands of dollars you know affecting businesses and farmers in places like india really wiping off any legislation that ever comes up that would affect monsanto's business and just getting in the way of people speaking out against what they see as wrong so certainly whereas the march against

9:05 am
it drove a lot of these in the environment into sheer poverty and they ended up committing suicide by the hundreds and thousands of muslims of effect farming communities everywhere i mean in the united states they're known for suing small farmers there's a lot of small farmers at the putting out of business because they have genetic migration into into crops that weren't supposed to be g.m.o. but they're getting cross-pollinate it and then monsanto comes in they use their government cronies to go in and shut down small farmers because. their genetics from their seas that they've patented have have slowly crept into the into the genetics of non g.m.o. seeds as well and despite a global the u.s. senate has shot down a bill which would have given american states bill sourcing to decide whether to label genetically modified products the majority of legislators believe people don't need to know whether but foods and again lopez explains why. for
9:06 am
years now americans have been concerned about the food in their refrigerators and more importantly the ingredients in those foods the debate over genetically modified crops isn't only playing out in the fields it's being harvested in the courtrooms as well as within the walls of capitol hill and it turns out the u.s. government might have a bigger stake in the biotech industry than anyone could have imagined a report released by the food and water watch group shows that the u.s. state department played a major role in promoting g.m. foods and crops around the world the report examined diplomatic cables from two thousand and five to two thousand and nine revised the first comprehensive analysis of u.s. foreign policy when it comes to the biotech industry now here are the four stated goals that food and water watch discovered in these cables the first one is to promote biotech interests abroad they try to facilitate trade and encourage cultivation of g.m. crops second up lobby foreign governments to weaken biotech rules you can't after

all profit for off these countries if you can't get your products in some of them along with lobbying the need to protect biotech exports by stopping trade barriers like tariffs all this to promote and protect an estimated twenty five billion dollar industry and biotech crop exports and in particular one crumby monsanto which was the biggest biotech seed company in two thousand and eleven and finally reach out to new markets by pressuring the developing countries to adopt a biotech crops the main argument here is that these crops are stronger and can end food insecurity around the world with a growing global population the state department also lobbied against the labeling of these crops and genetically modified foods they don't want any type of labels on them countries from egypt to hungary argentina to mozambique were targeted in these efforts and many of them were very receptive some of them. actually change their
9:08 am
regulations as a result now this lobbying started happening around the same time that monsanto admitted to bribing indonesian officials and in attempt to weaken and veyron mental oversight of g.e. crops now in the wake of these cable releases it appears that monsanto and other biotech firms don't need to bribe country officials anymore they have the government to do that using taxpayer money nonetheless it is the latest chapter in a dispute over your dinner plate in washington meghan lopez r.t. . and you can check out our live updates on the global day of action at our website on c dot call and stay with us throughout the day for the latest on the protests against some to as demonstrations go global. with the backing of the government so we see. the world race in the future the march against the sun show. on our t.v.
