US Declares Iraqis Must Destroy Their Own Seeds.

For the record: "U.S. declares Iraqis can not save their own seeds"

"As part of sweeping "economic restructuring" implemented by the Bush Administration in Iraq, Iraqi farmers will no longer be permitted to save their seeds, which include seeds the Iraqis themselves have developed over hundreds of years. Instead, they will be forced to buy seeds from US corporations. That is because in recent years, transnational corporations have patented and now own many seed varieties originated or developed by indigenous peoples. In a short time, Iraq will be living under the new American credo:

Pay Monsanto, or starve ."

"The American Administrator of the Iraqi CPA (Coalition Provisional Authority) government, Paul Bremer, updated Iraq's intellectual property law to 'meet current internationally-recognized standards of protection'. The updated law makes saving seeds for next year's harvest, practiced by 97% of Iraqi farmers in 2002, and is the standard farming practice for thousands of years across human civilizations, to be now illegal.. Instead, farmers will have to obtain a yearly license for genetically modified (GM) seeds from American corporations. These GM seeds have typically been modified from seeds developed over thousands of generations by indigenous farmers like the Iraqis, and shared freely like agricultural 'open source.'"

Iraq law Requires Seed Licenses November 13, 2004

"According to Order 81, paragraph 66 - [B], issued by L. Paul Bremer [CFR], the people in Iraq are now prohibited from saving seeds and may only plant seeds for their food from licensed, authorized U.S. distributors.

The paragraph states, "Farmers shall be prohibited from re-using seeds of protected varieties or any variety mentioned in items 1 and 2 of paragraph [C] of Article 14 of this chapter."

Written in massively intricate legalese, Order 81 directs the reader at Article 14, paragraph 2 [C] to paragraph [B] of Article 4, which states any variety that is different from any other known variety may be registered in any country and become a protected variety of seed - thus defaulting it into the "protected class" of seeds and prohibiting the Iraqis from reusing them the following season. Every year, the Iraqis must destroy any seed they have, and repurchase seeds from an authorized supplier, or face fines, penalties and/or jail time."

As per an Iraqi proverb, the day will come, sooner rather than later, when the Iraqis will shred Bremer's Laws, soak them in water and offer the glass to Bremer to drink.

This is the freedom that comes with the American form of democracy?

moore propaganda?  


2 Feb 2005 @ 04:39 by skookum : is it REALLY true?
I want to know

Those laws are being enforced all over the world, people are being sued by Monsanto, for growing seed crops, that carry thier genetic markers, these markers are in pollen, and pollen blows in the wind, and pollenates native plants. This is fact.  


2 Feb 2005 @ 09:37 by vaxen : Thankyou...
bushman. They want this for the whole world and the plans are on the drawing board to 'make it so.' Of course the seed is engineered so that it only produces for a season then...

This is what many, here, were up in arms about a few years back when they were drafting the 'legislation.' Only one way to deal with these enslavers. Only one way and that isn't turning the other cheek either! Nor is it 'love thy neighbor!'

Strange how easily 'Americans' have accepted fascism. The worst is yet to come. The One World Government will fight tooth and nail and, perhaps, succeed for a few years in altering the destiny of human kind to that of being totally enslaved. Then maybe people will begin to understand what was really unleased during WWII and why all the 'big guns' supported Adolph Hitler including the present Bush nepotists.

Thanks again for the article.

...this is already happening in India, Nepal & other tea-growing areas in the region.  


2 Feb 2005 @ 13:48 by martha : I wonder why this hasn't hit
the national news. What also concrns me is the 9 BILLION dollars that has gone missing in Iraq. Our tax money which the American people have paid in working hard is now missing. Thats 9 BILLION $$$$$. Makes me not want to pay...oh never mind.

This is Freedom and Democracy as announced to the 'unsuspecting' populace of the planet in the in-awe-gerr-ow tragi-commic per-form-dance. US style, the great US dream has been well and truly captured and subverted. And we all saw it coming did we not?
Don't need to look to deeply into the sacred heart to 'know' when you is be'n 'sold a pup'
I hold it all in the compassion I have been guided to embrace, for I know that we are to be 'free' to express our hearts desire and that will be on the terms of the 'ONE & THE MANY' not corporate America’s or any other 'one' for that matter. (Good luck with resolving the paradox, we is all on the same ship!!)
Wishing you all the strength and light of the divine creator in these times of massive awakening and shifting of the collective consciousness.

Many thanks for your consistent integrity Anthony. It requires a Bushman to sense the heart of the Bush's agenda and to speak truth as it is gifted. I had the copy button active and a sense of rage at this transparent and demonic move when I logged in and saw that you had already alerted our community to the need for action to preserve the future of this 'sacred now' experiment. We will not go the way of our last cycle, or will we? Did those who were incarnate in Atlantian times not learn the lessons of abuse of technology and the dangers inherent in the top down control agenda?

** The updated
law makes saving seeds for next year's harvest, practiced by 97%
of Iraqi farmers in 2002, and is the standard farming practice
for thousands of years across human civilizations, to be now
illegal.**

In-deed Monsanto's terminator gene is the most in your face of the death agenda so tightly held by those who have no trust in the creator’s glory story. They may be Christians but they are not Christed ones!

Over fed and under nourished, bullshit needs to be cycled through the compost before it is of real benefit prior to that it is merely a smelly mess.

Martha, I must call you on the 'oh never mind', it is time to stop with that and grow through the pain of 'doing something'(embrace the anger and frustration it is VERY FREEING but not necessarily VERY COMFORTABLE). We will never resolve our problems by behaving like ostriches. Those who find themselves in the crap must dig themselves out, or be smothered by shit, not look for the roses that grow in it so abundantly while ignoring the thorns and the gaping wounds within the greater body. F***K the missing US dollars what about all those dead and wounded on both sides. Not to mention the frustration and anger which is poisoning the human experience world wide through controlled media menus.

I en-cour-age all to make the stand that will allow for the 'shift of ages' to anchor where it must be, within the sacred heart of this eternal now experience.
We would like to think that we will not be the only survivors of the shake up wake up call our beloved Gaia is providing.
