Ikhanda likaBayer's Monsanto liyaqhubeka

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

I-migraine eyiMonsanto ibonakala ingahambi nganoma yisiphi isikhathi maduze kuBayer AG.

Imizamo yokuxazulula inqwaba yamacala alethwe e-United States ngamashumi ezinkulungwane zabantu abathi imithi yokubulala ukhula i-Roundup yabanikeza umdlavuza iyaqhubeka nokuqhubekela phambili, kepha ababheki kuwo wonke amacala asele, futhi nabamangali abanikezwanga ngezindawo zokuhlala ezivumelana nabo.

In incwadi eya kwiJaji Lesifunda laseMelika uVince Chhabria, Ummeli waseTexas uDavid Diamond uthe izethulo ezenziwe ngabameli ezihola izingxoxo zokuxazulula iBayer egameni labamangali azikhombisi ngokunembile isimo samakhasimende akhe. Ubalule “ukuntuleka” “kokuhlangenwe nakho okuhlobene nokuhlala” neBayer futhi wacela ukuthi iJaji uChhabria aqhubekele phambili ngamacala amaningi kaDiamond ukuze aqulwe.

“Izethulo zobuholi maqondana nokukhokhwa kwemali azimele izivumelwano zamakhasimende ami
okuhlangenwe nakho okuhlobene, izintshisekelo noma isikhundla, ”kusho uDiamond etshela ijaji.

UDiamond ubhale kule ncwadi ukuthi unamakhasimende angama-423 Roundup, afaka phakathi angama-345 anamacala asalindwe phambi kukaChabria ecaleni lamacala amaningi (MDL) eNkantolo yesiFunda sase-US esiFundeni esiseNyakatho neCalifornia. Eceleni kwe-MDL kunezinkulungwane zabamangali amacala abo asalindile ezinkantolo zombuso.

Ukufinyelela kukaDiamond kwijaji kulandele ukulalelwa ngasekupheleni kwenyanga edlule lapho amafemu amaningana aholayo enkantolo kanye nabameli bakaBayer batshele uChabria ukuthi sebesondele ekuxazululeni iningi lamacala, uma kungewona wonke, phambi kwejaji.

IBayer ifinyelele ezindaweni ezibalulekile namafemu abameli ahamba phambili abamele ingxenye enkulu yezimangalo ezilethwe iMonsanto. NgoJuni, iBayer yathi izonikeza u- $ 8.8 billion kuya ku- $ 9.6 billion ukuxazulula icala.

Kepha impikiswano nokuphikisana kuye kwacindezela ukunikezwa kokukhokha konke.

Abamangali abaningana abamele amafemu amakhulu nabakhulume ngombandela wokuthi amagama abo angasetshenziswa, bathe abahambisani nemibandela yezindawo zokuhlala, okusho ukuthi amacala abo azobhekiswa ekulamuleni futhi, uma lokho kwehluleka, ukulingwa.

Ngemuva kokuthenga iMonsanto e2018, iBayer ibisokola ukuthola ukuthi izophela kanjani enkantolo efaka abamangali abangaphezu kuka-100,000. Le nkampani ilahlekelwe yizilingo ezintathu kwezintathu ebibhekene nazo kuze kube manje futhi ilahlekelwe yizikhalazo zokuqala ezazifuna ukuguqula ukulahleka kwecala. AmaJury kwesinye nesinye sezivivinyo athola ukuthi ama-herbicides aseMonsanto's glyphosate, afana neRoundup, abangela umdlavuza nokuthi uMonsanto uchithe amashumi eminyaka efihla izingozi.

Imizamo yenkampani yokuxazulula leli cala iye yabekelwa eceleni yingqinamba yokuthi zingasuswa kanjani izimangalo ezingalethwa ngokuzayo ngabantu ababa nomdlavuza ngemuva kokusebenzisa imishanguzo yokubulala ukhula yenkampani.

Izinkinga Zilokhu Zanda  

IBayer isabise ngokuthi izofaka ukuqothuka uma ingakwazi ukuvala icala leRoundup kanti ngoLwesithathu inkampani ikhiphe isexwayiso senzuzo futhi yamemezela izigidigidi zokuncishiswa kwezindleko, icaphuna “umbono ophansi kunalindelekile emakethe yezolimo” phakathi kwezinye izinto. Lezi zindaba zithumele amasheya enkampanini ewayo.

Ekubikeni izinkinga zikaBayer UBarron uqaphele: “Izinkinga zilokhu zanda njalo kuBayer nakubatshalizimali bayo, okumanje kumele basebenzise njalo izindaba ezingadumisi. Isitokwe manje sehle ngaphezu kuka-50% selokhu isivumelwano seMonsanto savalwa ngoJuni 2018. "Lokhu kubuyekezwa kwakamuva kunezela ecaleni lokuthi isivumelwano seMonsanto sibe ngesinye sezimo ezimbi kakhulu emlandweni wezinkampani."
