Isikhungo Sabalingani Bokubambisana Kokudla neMonsanto

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

ICentre for Food Integrity (CFI), phambilini eyayiyiGrow America Project, iyinhlangano engenzi nzuzo exhaswa yizimboni eyenza imikhankaso yocwaningo, ukunxenxa kanye nobudlelwano bomphakathi ukuze "ithole ukwethembela kwabathengi" kwezinkampani zokudla nezolimo, okubala I-DowDuPont, iMonsanto, iCargill, i-Costco, i-Grocery Manufacturers Association, i-Hershey, i-Kroger kanye nezinhlangano zezohwebo zenyama, ubisi nobhontshisi.

Esikhathini seminyaka emihlanu kusuka 2012-2016, I-CFI isebenzise ama- $ 23,225,098 ekumaketheni nasekuthumeleni imiyalezo ehlukahlukene izinhlelo ukukhuthaza ukuthumela imiyalezo embonini ukwakha ukwethembela ekudleni okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo, izibulala-zinambuzane, izithasiselo zokudla nemithi elwa namagciwane enyameni.

Ingalo yeCFI engu-501 (c) (3), ingalo ye- Isisekelo Sobuqotho Bokudla, uxhasa ngezimali ucwaningo lokwazisa imizamo yemiyalezo yokwakha ukwethembela kwabathengi, ngesabelomali sokusetshenziswa esingu- $ 823,167 kusuka 2012-2016. Abaxhasi ngo-2012 yayihlanganisa Inkampani yeMonsanto, iCropLife America kanye ne-US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance.

"Umlingani wezezimboni" ekuhlaselweni kukaMonsanto kuphaneli yomdlavuza we-IARC

Lokhu idokhumenti yangaphakathi yeMonsanto ikhomba i-Centre for Food Integrity “njengomlingani womkhakha” ezinhlelweni zobudlelwano bomphakathi noMonsanto zokudicilela phansi igama lengalo yocwaningo lomdlavuza le-World Health Organisation, i-International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), ukuvikela isithunzi seRoundup weedkiller. Ngo-Mashi 2015, i-IARC yahlulela i-glyphosate, isithako esiyinhloko ku-Roundup, ukuthi ibe mhlawumbe i-carcinogenic kubantu.

Uhlelo lweMonsanto lubala izingxenye ezine zabalingani bemboni ukubamba iqhaza emizameni yayo yokuxhumana nomphakathi. I-CFI ibhalwe njengohlu lwe-Tier 3 “partner partner” kanye namanye amaqembu amabili axhaswe izimboni zokudla, i- Umkhandlu Wokwaziswa Kwezokudla Womhlaba Wonke futhi Inhlangano Yabenzi Begilosa.

Ngokwalo mbhalo, la maqembu ayeyingxenye ye “Stakeholder Engagement team” eyayingaxwayisa izinkampani zokudla “ngecebo lokugomela” likaMonsanto ukuze linikeze imfundo ngamazinga e-glyphosate futhi “lichaze izifundo ezenzelwe isayensi uma kuqhathaniswa ne-ajenda eqhutshwa yi-ajenda” yomdlavuza ozimele iphaneli.

Bheka ukubambisana kwe-East / CMA ne-Monsanto ne-Genetic Literacy Project

Isikhulu esiphezulu seCentre for Food Integrity, uCharlie Arnot, naye uyi-CEO ye Bheka eMpumalanga (phambilini i-CMA), i-PR kanye nezokuxhumana ejensi yezokudla nezolimo. Izinkontileka zeCFI neLook East zezinsizakalo zokuphathwa kwamaphrojekthi, ngokusho kwamafomu entela.

Inkampani ka-Arnot PR nayo isebenza neMonsanto, ngokusho kwemibhalo etholakele ngu-US Ilungelo Lokwazi. Ku-2014, iMonsanto yathinta i-CMA ku- “Thengisa” futhi uphromothe uchungechunge lwezinqubomgomo ze-pro-GMO ezinikezwe umphathi we-Monsanto osolwazi futhi wahlela ukuzishicilela kuwebhusayithi ye-Genetic Literacy Project - ngaphandle kokudalulwa kwendima kaMonsanto ekusithekeni, njenge Kubike iBoston Globe.

The Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project, elinye iqembu lozakwethu embonini eliqanjwe ohlelweni lukaMonsanto lwe-PR lokwehlisa isithunzi i-IARC, nalo lithola uxhaso kwiCentre for Food Integrity, ngokusho kwe-GLP yamuva futhi ngokuvamile “ikhasi lokubonisa ngale” elingalungile
