As the Western establishment continues to try and crush Syria, Venezuela, Iran and the Philippines, the empire is setting its sights on a new target which is receiving itself less attention: Tanzania.
Although not in the form of bombs and sanctions (yet), the G 8 is moving to force Tanzania to accept GMOs and patented seeds under the guise of developmental assistance and aid to one of the world’s most impoverished nations. The G 8 is doing so through its NAFSN (New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition) which was created in 2012. Its publicly stated goal was to end poverty for 50 million people and it is funded by the EU, U.S., UK, World Bank, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One of its many partners in Tanzania is of course, Monsanto.
What the NAFSN has done is much worse than extortion and it is more than criminal. It is open colonialism in the 21st century. Essentially, the NAFSN has used the poverty in Tanzania as a bargaining chip for its alleged food aid which is actually a bundle of toxic crops, an open police state and a massive boon to Big Ag’s balance sheets.
Tanzanian farmers are now going to be thrown into prison simply for planting and growing natural plants and food. This new law is the criminalization of nature, self-sustainability and independence. It is also eerily similar to other typical colonial-style practices such as banning indigenous languages. This criminalization of nature over time eliminates even the possibility of retaining one’s culture and traditional practices.
