China Turns On GM, GM Companies Turn On Each Other


Recommended Posts

Cargill is in the food-trading business purely for control and profit, and they are pro-GMO, of course. Nutritional quality is of no concern. But they don't like it when their export sales are spoiled by a GMO company's effort to insert their corn product into a large shipment exported by Cargill to China, a nation that hasn't approved it.... In August of 2014, China's Ministry of Agriculture refused to renew certificates that allowed Chinese research groups to grow genetically modified rice and corn. China also refuses to import foods with genetic modifications not approved by the government.

Well, that depends.


Zoom out a bit and it gets really nasty.


- Allow companies to sue governments if they make decisions which negatively affect big business’ potential profits (like capping energy prices, or introducing plain packet cigarettes.)


- Stop future governments from rolling back privatisation of our public services, such as the NHS, energy companies, or the Post Office.


- Relax the rules which protect consumers, our environment, our welfare and health services, to much weaker US levels.


Sounds like a Tory's wet dream.
