I find this article about Polish farmer protests against GMO, Big Ag land purchases, food sovereignty, etc. interesting.
It appears that what is being done in Poland is classic Agenda 21 rollout. The Agenda 21 plan sees no place for the small farmer. Crop production will be GMO crops, grown by Big Ag, and rural people will be no more. Everyone will be herded into small, metropolitan apartments, in the name of protecting the environment.
And what you see in Poland is typical of this rollout:
More than 150 farmers blocked roadways and held numerous demonstrations in order to bring attention to the important issue of food sovereignty in Poland. Their focus is a ban on GMOs and a restoration of small farmer’s rights after decades of oppressive health and safety regulations which take rights away from small farms and give them to mono-cropping, poisoning Big Ag mega-companies.
Regulation is used to make it impossible for the small farmer. I quote:
There are 4 simple key demands the farmers would like to be heard:
- Regulation of land grabs by primarily Western companies (translation – biotech and Big Ag) to prevent small farmers from losing their livelihoods.
- The legalization of direct sale of produce and other foods from farms to the people. This cuts out the middle man and allows the higher quality produce of many farms to reach its customers directly. Poland currently has some of the most extreme policies of all of Europe in this regard, making it nearly impossible for small farmers to compete with big food companies who are notorious for selling us fake and highly processed foods.
- Change inheritance laws so that families can rightly leave land under lease to their heirs.
- Ban the cultivation of genetically modified organisms
One farmer stated:
“We demand the introduction of legislation that will protect Polish land from exploitation by foreign capital! Agricultural land cannot be sold to commercial companies. It’s part of Polish territory. Once sold it will be lost.
End of quote.
And it will be. If you don’t yet understand the Agenda 21 process, you owe it to yourself to find out, because it’s happening in your neighbourhood very, very furtively. Almost no-one knows about it; just as it has been planned.
