AmaGates-Funded Cornell Group Misfires ku-Protest yeVandana Shiva

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Ukubhikisha esidlangalaleni kubonakala kuyindlela eyinqaba yokuqeda impikiswano, kepha iCornell Alliance for Science - a Umkhankaso wobudlelwano bomphakathi oxhaswe yiGates Foundation "ukudicilela phansi inkulumo-mpikiswano ebibekwe icala" mayelana nama-GMO - bajoyine umbhikisho wakamuva eWillamette University ukubhekana noVandana Shiva, PhD, isazi saseNdiya, umbhali nesazi semvelo.

Ukujoyina ababhikishi abazichaza "be-science nerd" abavela emaqenjini anamagama afana ne-March Against Myths About Modification (MAMyths), IVegan GMO ne-PDX Skeptics ePub - abaningana babo abebehambele umcimbi wakamuva wokuqeqesha iCornell Alliance eMexico ukuyokwenza amasu okukhuthaza i-GMO - abasebenzisana neCornell bashaye imigwaqo eWillamette ukuphikisana nalokho abathi "ulwazi olungelona iqiniso" kanye ne "doublespeak" kusuka kuDkt Shiva. Lokhu ngokusho kukaJayson Merkley, owayengumlingani waseCornell Alliance futhi ongumsunguli weVegan GMO ngubani manje kuyasebenzela ithimba lokuqeqesha leCornell Alliance.

“Sasihlose ukugcina umyalezo wethu unobungane, ungeneka, futhi unethemba,” kubhala uMerkley, “iziqubulo zethu zazikhombisa isihloko esihluke kakhulu kunokwesaba esivame ukukubona: 'Ungaqali impi. Qala ingxoxo. '”

Iqembu lenze iphutha, noma kunjalo, nge-promotin ulwazi olungelona iqiniso kanye ne-doublespeak. Isibonelo, lapho owesifazane ezwakalisa ukukhathazeka kuMerkley mayelana nekhwalithi yamanzi nokuchayeka kwamakhemikhali okuhlobene nokudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo, "wamomotheka futhi wanqekuzisa ikhanda" futhi wathatha ithuba lokuchaza ukuthi "Ukuqanjwa kwe-GE akuyona inkinga" kepha kunalokho kuyingxenye yesixazululo . (Empeleni, ukudla okuningi kwe-GMO enzelwe ukubekezelela ukubulala ukhula okususelwa ku-glyphosate-based Roundup, futhi abe ngokuphawulekayo kuqhutshwa ukusetshenziswa kwe-glyphosate, okushiwo abenhlangano yocwaningo lomdlavuza yeWorld Health Organisation ethi iyi kungenzeka i-carcinogen yomuntu.)

Ngenkathi uDkt.Shiva edlula kubabhikishi, amehlo akhe ahlala “ethe njo phansi,” kubhala uMerkley, “ngaleyo ndlela, angagwema ukuvala amehlo nanoma ngubani ongabuza ngamakhulu ezinkulungwane ezingane ezibulawa ukuswelakala kwemishanguzo eNdiya. . ”

Okushiywe nguMerkley nababhikishi: amaqiniso afanele aphathelene nokungondleki.

Naphezu kweminyaka eyishumi yokulingwa, asikho isisombululo se-GMO sokushoda kwezakhi etholakalayo ukusiza izingane ezifa. Esikhundleni salokho, ama-GMO amaningi asemasimini futhi aya emakethe yizitshalo ezingamelana nokubulala ukhula eziphakamisa ukukhathazeka okukhulu mayelana nekhwalithi yamanzi nokuchayeka kwezibulala-zinambuzane ezindaweni ezikhulayo ze-GMO ezifana Hawaii, Argentina futhi Iowa.

Ubufakazi obususelwa kwisayensi bukhombisa nokuthi ukungondleki kanye nokushoda kwezakhi zomzimba kukhuphuke kakhulu emazweni asathuthuka afana ne-Afrika, ngaphandle kwezigidigidi zamaRandi ezichithwe yiGates Foundation nohulumeni base-Afrika ekuthuthukiseni nasekuxhaseni izimbewu namakhemikhali ezentengiselwano abizayo njengesisombululo sendlala.

Ngeshwa, iCornell Alliance for Science ithembela kunkulumo-ze, hhayi isayensi, njengesiqondiso semizamo yayo yokuxhumana ne-pro-GMO. Kubhalwe kahle ukuthi ifayela le- Iqembu leCornell lithuthukisa imininingwane enganembile ngesayensi futhi isebenzisa amaqhinga angabazekayo emizameni yayo yokwengeza izinzuzo ezikhona zama-GMO esikhathini esizayo, kuyilapho ingazinaki izinkinga ezibhalwe phansi kanye nabagxeki ababheka eceleni - indlela eqinisekile yokupholisa noma ngabe iziqubulo zombhikisho zinobungani kangakanani.

Le bhulogi ivuselelwe ukucacisa ukuthi iCornell Alliance for Science ithe abawuhlelile umbhikisho weVandana Shiva, yize bewukhuthaza futhi abantu abaqeqeshwe yi-Alliance ngezindlela eziqondile zokubamba iqhaza babambe iqhaza kuwo. Ukubuyekezwa kufakwe ku-2020 ngemininingwane emisha yokungondleki.
