Izinkampani zeBayer's Shady PR: IFleishmanHillard, Ketchum, FTI Consulting

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Kuthunyelwe ekuqaleni ngoMeyi 2019; ibuyekezwe ngoNovemba 2020

Kulokhu okuthunyelwe, i-US Right to Know ilandelela amahlazo okukhohlisa omphakathi ahlanganisa amafemu e-PR ukuthi imidondoshiya yezolimo iBayer AG neMonsanto bathembele kuyo ngemikhankaso yabo yokuvikela umkhiqizo: Ukubonisana kwe-FTI, uKetchum PR noFleishmanHillard. Lawa mafemu banemilando emide yokusebenzisa amaqhinga akhohlisayo ukukhuthaza izinhloso zezepolitiki zamakhasimende abo, kubandakanya nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane, imikhankaso yezokuvikela imboni kawoyela.

Amahlazo wakamuva

I-NYT idalula amasu e-FTI Consulting firm's shady embonini kawoyela: Phakathi ku Novemba 11, 2020 indatshana yeNew York Times, UHiroko Tabuchi wembula ukuthi i-FTI Consulting “isize kanjani ukuklama, abasebenzi nokuqhuba izinhlangano namawebhusayithi axhaswe yizinkampani zamandla ezingabonakala zimelela ukwesekwa emazingeni aphansi kohlelo lwezinto ezimbiwa phansi.” Ngokususelwa ezingxoxweni zakhe nabayishumi nababili ababengabasebenzi be-FTI namakhulu emibhalo yangaphakathi, uTabuchi ubika ngendlela i-FTI eyayiqapha ngayo izishoshovu zezemvelo, yaqhuba imikhankaso yezepolitiki ye-astroturf, yabamba izingosi ezimbili zezindaba nemininingwane futhi yabhala izindatshana ezisekela umkhakha mayelana nokuthwebula, ukumangalelwa kwesimo sezulu nokunye okushisayo Izinkinga zebutton ngesiqondiso esivela ku-Exxon Mobile.

IMonsanto kanye namafemu ayo e-PR bahlela umzamo we-GOP wokwesabisa abacwaningi bomdlavuza: U-Lee Fang kubikwe iThe Intercept ku-2019 kumadokhumenti aphakamisa ukuthi abalawuli abamelene neMonsanto futhi basebenzise ingcindezi yokwenza ucwaningo lwe-herbicide ehamba phambili emhlabeni, i-glyphosate. Indaba ibika ngamasu akhohlisayo e-PR, kufaka phakathi indlela i-FTI Consulting eyabhala ngayo incwadi emayelana nesayensi ye-glyphosate esayinwe ngusihlalo omkhulu we-GOP.

Imibhalo yeMonsanto yembula amaqhinga okudicilela phansi uphenyo lwentshisekelo yomphakathi: Imibhalo yangaphakathi yeMonsanto ekhishwe ngamacala enkantolo ngo-Agasti 2019 iveze amasu amaningi inkampani kanye namafemu ayo e-PR asetshenziselwe ukukhomba izintatheli nabanye abathonya abaphakamise ukukhathazeka ngemithi yokubulala izinambuzane kanye nama-GMO, futhi bazama ukuphikisa uphenyo ngemisebenzi yabo yi-US Right to Know.

Bona amashidi weqiniso we-USRTK, ngokuya ngemibhalo etholwe kuphenyo lwethu, ukubika ngabantu besithathu ababambe iqhaza ekuvikeleni imboni yezibulala-zinambuzane: Ukulandelela Inethiwekhi Yezimboni Yezimboni Eziphathelene Nezibulala-zinambuzane.

NgoMeyi 2019, sabika ngamahlazo amaningi afaka amafemu eBayer PR:

Isikhalazo se 'Monsanto File'

Izintatheli at ULe Monde wabika ngoMeyi 9 ukuthi bathole "Ifayela leMonsanto" eyenziwe yinkampani yezobudlelwano bomphakathi iFleishmanHillard ibala "inqwaba yolwazi" cishe izintatheli ezingama-200, osopolitiki, ososayensi nabanye ababonakala bengaba nomthelela empikiswaneni ye-glyphosate eFrance. Le Monde ufake isikhalazo nehhovisi lomshushisi waseParis lisola ukuthi lo mbhalo ubandakanya ukuqoqwa nokuqhutshwa kwemininingwane yomuntu ngokungemthetho, okugqugquzela ihhovisi lomshushisi vula uphenyo lobugebengu. “Lokhu kutholakala okubaluleke kakhulu ngoba kukhombisa ukuthi kunamasu anenhloso yokuthulisa amaphimbo aqinile. Ngiyabona ukuthi bebezama ukungihlukanisa, ” Lowo owayenguNgqongqoshe Wezemvelo waseFrance uSegolene Royal, okusohlwini, utshele iFrance 24 TV.

"Lokhu kutholakale kubaluleke kakhulu ngoba kukhombisa ukuthi kunamasu afanele okuvala umsindo."

UFrancois Veillerette, isazi sezemvelo nasohlwini, utshele iFrance 24 ukuthi iqukethe imininingwane yokuxhumana yomuntu siqu, imibono nezinga lokuzibandakanya maqondana neMonsanto. "Lokhu kushaqisa kakhulu eFrance," esho. "Asicabangi ukuthi lokhu kuvamile." IBayer isivele yavuma ukuthi uFleishmanHillard waqamba “'uhlu lwamawashi 'lwezibalo ze-pro- noma anti-pesticides”Emazweni ayisikhombisa kulo lonke elaseYurophu, kubika i-AFP. Lezi zinhlu zaziqukethe imininingwane ngezintatheli, osopolitiki namanye amaqembu athintekayo. I-AFP ithe yafaka isikhalazo enkampanini yezomthetho yaseFrance ngoba ezinye zezintatheli zayo zazisohlwini olwavela eFrance.

Bayer waxolisa futhi wakusho kwamiswa ubudlelwano bayo namafemu athintekayo, kubandakanya neFleishmanHillard kanye nePublicis Consultants, kusalindwe uphenyo. "Okusemqoka kakhulu kithi ukudala obala," Kusho uBayer. "Asikubekezeleli ukungaziphathi kahle enkampanini yethu." (Amafemu kamuva asulwa ekwenzeni okungalungile yinkampani yabameli eqashwe yiBayer.)

Ukubeka njengentatheli ekuhlolweni komdlavuza waseMonsanto

Ukwengeza ezinkingeni zeBayer PR, i-AFP ibike ngoMeyi 18 ukuthi umsebenzi wenye inkampani "yokulawulwa kwezinhlekelele" PR isebenza neBayer neMonsanto - FTI Consulting - wabanjwa ezenza intatheli ezimele ecaleni likahulumeni waseSan Francisco elaphela ngo Isahlulelo esingu- $ 80 million ngokumelene neBayer ngenxa yokukhathazeka komdlavuza we-glyphosate.

Isisebenzi se-FTI Consulting uSylvie Barak ubonakale exoxa nezintatheli ngemibono yezindaba ecaleni. Uthe usebenzela i-BBC futhi akazange adalule ukuthi empeleni usebenzela inkampani ye-PR.

UKetchum noFleishmanHillard basebenzisa i-GMO PR salvo

Ngo-2013, imboni yezolimo yathinta uFleishmanHillard noKetchum, bobabili ababengabakwa-Omnicom, ukuzokwakha PR kuyacasula ukuvuselela isithombe yemikhiqizo yayo ehlanganisiwe ye-GMO nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane. Kukhethwe iMonsanto UFleishmanHillard ukuze "akhe kabusha" igama lakhe phakathi "kokuphikisana okukhulu" nokudla okushintshwe izakhi zofuzo, ngokusho kweHolmes Report. Cishe ngaso leso sikhathi, uFleishmanHillard naye waba yi- I-ejensi ye-PR yerekhodi leBayer, kanye noMkhandlu Wezolwazi Lwezinto Eziphilayo (i-CBI) - iqembu lokuhweba kuxhaswe ngemali IBayer (iMonsanto), iCorteva (iDowDuPont), iSyngenta neBASF - baqashe inkampani yezobudlelwano nomphakathi yakwaKetchum ukuze yethule umkhankaso wokumaketha obizwa nge-GMO Answers.

Amaqhinga okujija aqashwe yila mafemu afaka phakathi “wooing mama Blogger”Nokusebenzisa amazwi ochwepheshe okuthiwa“ abazimele ”ku-“susa ukudideka nokungathembani”Mayelana nama-GMO. Kodwa-ke, kwavela ubufakazi bokuthi amafemu e-PR ahlela futhi abhalele abanye ochwepheshe "abazimele". Isibonelo, imibhalo etholwe yi-US Right to Know ikhombisa lokho Kubhalwe uKetchum okuthunyelwe kwe GMO Izimpendulo ezisayinwe ngu- Uprofesa wase-University of Florida owathi uzimele njengoba wayesebenza ekusithekeni neMonsanto kumaphrojekthi we-PR. Iphini likamongameli omkhulu eFleishmanHillard kuhlelwe inkulumo a UC Davis uprofesa futhi wamqeqesha kanjani "ukunqoba abantu ekamelweni" at an Impikiswano ye-IQ2 ukukholisa umphakathi ukwamukela ama-GMO. UKetchum naye unikeze uprofesa amaphuzu okukhuluma kwinhlolokhono yomsakazo mayelana nocwaningo lwesayensi.

Izifundiswa beziyizithunywa ezibalulekile zemizamo yokunxenxa izimboni ukuthi ziphikisane nokulebula kwe-GMO, kubika i INew York Times ngo-2015. "Osolwazi / abacwaningi / ososayensi banesigqoko esikhulu esimhlophe kule mpikiswano kanye nokwesekwa ezifundazweni zabo, kusuka kosopolitiki kuya kubakhiqizi," uBill Mashek, iphini likamongameli eKetchum, wabhalela uprofesa wase-University of Florida. "Qhubeka nomsebenzi omuhle!" Iqembu lezentengiselwano le-CBI lisebenzise imali engaphezu kwezigidi eziyi-11 zamaRandi kwi-GMO Answers kaKetchum kusukela ngo-2013, ngokusho kwamarekhodi entela.

Impumelelo ye-GMO Answers 'management management'

Njengophawu olulodwa lwempumelelo yalo njengethuluzi le-PR spin, Izimpendulo zeGMO zazikhona kufakwe ohlwini lomklomelo wokukhangisa we-CLIO ngo-2014 esigabeni se- “Crisis Management & Issue Management.” Kule vidiyo ye-CLIO, uKetchum uziqhayisa ngokuthi kucishe kwaphindaphindeka kanjani ukunakwa kwabezindaba ngama-GMO kanye "nokulinganisa okungu-80% kokusebenzisana" ku-Twitter. Okuningi kwalokhu kuxhumana okuku-inthanethi kuvela kuma-akhawunti abonakala ezimele futhi awadaluli ukuxhumana kwawo nomkhankaso we-PR wemboni.

Yize ividiyo kaKetchum ithi Izimpendulo zeGMO "zizokuchaza kabusha obala" ngolwazi oluvela kochwepheshe "abangenalutho oluhlungiwe noma olucutshunguliwe, futhi kungekho mazwi athulisiwe," uhlelo lweMonsanto PR luphakamisa ukuthi inkampani ibheke izimpendulo zeGMO ukusiza imikhiqizo yayo ngendlela efanele. I- idokhumenti kusuka ku-2015 kubhalwe Izimpendulo ze-GMO phakathi "kwabalingani bemboni" lokho kungasiza ukuvikela i-Roundup ekukhathazekeni komdlavuza; esigabeni "sezinsizakusebenza" esisekhasini 4, lolu hlelo lubhale izixhumanisi eziya kuzimpendulo ze-GMO kanye nemibhalo yeMonsanto engadlulisa umyalezo wenkampani othi "iGlyphosate ayiyona i-carcinogenic."

Le vidiyo yeKetchum yathunyelwa kuwebhusayithi ye-CLIO futhi yasuswa ngemuva kokuyinaka.

Imlando yokukhohlisa: UFleishmanHillard, uKetchum

Kungani noma iyiphi inkampani ingabeka uFleishmanHillard noma uKetchum, bobabili abaphethwe yi-PR conglomerate Omnicom, phambi kwemizamo yokukhuthaza ukwethembana kunzima ukuyiqonda. Zombili lezi zinkampani zinomlando omude wenkohliso ebhaliwe. Ngokwesibonelo:

Kuze kube ngo-2016, uKetchum wayengu- PR ngokuqinile eRussia kanye noVladimir Putin. Ngokuvumelana ne imibhalo etholwe yiProPublica, UKetchum wabanjwa ebeka ama-pro-Putin op-eds ngaphansi kwamagama "ochwepheshe ababonakala bezimele" ezindaweni ezahlukene zezindaba. Ngo-2015, i- Uhulumeni waseHonduran ohlangene waqasha uKetchum ukuzama ukuvuselela isithunzi sayo ngemuva kwesigameko senkohlakalo esabiza izigidi zamadola.

Imibhalo idalulwe kuMama Jones kukhombisa ukuthi uKetchum usebenze nenkampani yonogada ezimele "ehlola iGreenpeace nezinye izinhlangano zemvelo kusukela ngasekupheleni kweminyaka yama-1990s okungenani ngonyaka ka-2000, bephanga imibhalo emigqonyeni kadoti, bezama ukutshala izinkampani ezifihlekile ngaphakathi kwamaqembu, ukufaka amahhovisi amahhovisi, ukuqoqa amarekhodi efoni ezishoshovu, nemihlangano eyimfihlo engena ngaphakathi. ” UFleishmanHillard uphinde wabanjwa esebenzisa amaqhinga angekho emthethweni wokulwa nabameli bezempilo yomphakathi kanye nabameli bokulawulwa kukagwayi egameni lenkampani kagwayi iRJ Reynolds, ngokusho kocwaningo olwenziwe nguRuth Malone ku Ijenali yaseMelika Yezempilo Yomphakathi. Inkampani i-PR ize yaqopha ngokufihla umsindo imihlangano nezingqungquthela zokulawulwa kukagwayi.

UFileishman uHillard wayenjalo inkampani yezobudlelwano nomphakathi yeThe Tobacco Institute, okuyinhlangano eyinhloko yezimboni zikagwayi, iminyaka eyisikhombisa. Embhalweni ka-1996 Washington Post, uMorton Mintz elandisa le ndaba ngendlela iFleishmanHillard neTobacco Institute abaguqula ngayo iSikhungo Sempilo esincomekayo saba yiqembu eliphambili lomkhakha kagwayi emzamweni wawo wokuqeda ukukhathazeka komphakathi ngobungozi bokubhema intuthu kagwayi. UKethum futhi wasebenzela imboni kagwayi.

Womabili la mafemu kwesinye isikhathi asebenze ezinhlangothini zombili zodaba. UFleishmanHillard ubelokhu kuqashwe imikhankaso yokulwa nokubhema. Ku-2017, uKetchum wethule i- i-spin-off firm ebizwa ngokuthi yi-Cultivate ukwenza imali emakethe yokudla ephilayo ekhulayo, noma ngabe izimpendulo ze-GMO zikaKetchum zikuhlambalazile ukudla okungokwemvelo, zithi abathengi bakhokha “imali ephezulu” yokudla okungcono kunokudla okulinywa ngokujwayelekile.

Ukubonisana kwe-FTI: ukukhohlisa kwesimo sezulu, izibopho zikagwayi

I-FTI Consulting, "ukuphathwa kwezinhlekelele" PR eqinile esebenza neBayer futhi okwakungumsebenzi wakhe wabanjwa ezenza intatheli ocwaningweni lwakamuva lomdlavuza weRoundup eSan Francisco, wabelana ngokufana okuningana noFleishmanHillard noKetchum, kufaka phakathi ukusetshenziswa kwamaqhinga okucasha, ukungabi sobala kanye nomlando wokusebenzisana nomkhakha kagwayi.

Ifemu yaziwa njengomdlali ophambili emizameni ye-ExxonMobil yokubalekela ukubhekana nokuguquka kwesimo sezulu. Njengo-Elana Schor no-Andrew Restuccia kubikwe ePolitico ngo-2016:

“Ngaphandle kuka [Exxon] uqobo, ukuvimba okukhulu kwezwi kulokho okuvelayo kuqhamuke e-FTI Consulting, okuyinkampani egcwele abasizi bakudala beRiphabhulikhi esize ukuhlanganisa i-GOP ekuvikeleni izibaseli. Ngaphansi kwesibhengezo se-Energy in Depth, okuwumsebenzi owenzelwe i-Independent Petroleum Association of America, i-FTI ifake izintatheli ngama-imeyili aphakamisa “ukuhlangana” phakathi kwezishoshovu eziluhlaza kanye nama-AGs ombuso, futhi yaphakamisa imibuzo mayelana noxhaso lwe-InsideClimate's Rockefeller. ”

Abasebenzi bakwa-FTI Consulting bake babanjwa bezenza izintatheli phambilini. UKaren Savage ubike Januwari 2019 kuzindaba Zesimo Sezulu Sezulu, “Osomaqhinga ababili bezobudlelwano nomphakathi abamele i-Exxon muva nje bazenze izintatheli emzamweni wokuxoxisana nommeli omele imiphakathi yaseColorado emangalela i-Exxon ngomonakalo ohlobene nokuguquka kwesimo sezulu. Osomaqhinga — uMichael Sandoval noMatt Dempsey — baqashwe yi-FTI Consulting, okuyinkampani ende exhumene nemboni kawoyela negesi. ” Ngokusho kwe-Climate Liability News, la madoda amabili abhalwe njengababhali beWestern Wire, iwebhusayithi ephethwe yizintshisekelo zikawoyela futhi enabasebenzi be-FTI Consulting, ebuye inikeze abasebenzi kwi-Energy In Depth, ucwaningo olwenziwe ngophethiloli umkhankaso wokufinyelela emphakathini. ”

I-Energy In Depth yaziveza njenge "mama ne-pop shop" emele abahlinzeki bamandla amancane kepha yadalwa yizinkampani ezinkulu zikawoyela negesi ukunxenxa ukuqedwa komthetho, I-DeSmog blog ibike ngo-2011. Iqembu le-Greenpeace lathola i Imemo yomkhakha we-2009 ichaza I-Energy In Depth “njengomkhankaso omusha womkhakha obanzi wemboni… wokulwa nemithetho emisha yezemvelo, ikakhulukazi maqondana nokuqhekeka kuka-hydraulic” “obekungeke kwenzeke ngaphandle kokuzibophezela kwezezimali kusenesikhathi” kwezintshisekelo ezinkulu zikawoyela negesi ezibandakanya iBP, iHalliburton, iChevron, I-Shell, i-XTO Energy (manje ephethwe yi-ExxonMobil).

Esinye isici esifana nalawa mafemu yizinhlangano zawo zemboni kagwayi. I-FTI Consulting “inomlando omude wokusebenzisana nemboni kagwayi,” ngokusho kuka AmaTactics Tactics.org. Ukuseshwa kwelabhulali ye-UCSF Tobacco Industry Documents uletha amadokhumende angaphezu kuka-2,400 XNUMX ephathelene ne-FTI Consulting.

ICornell Alliance for Science ngumkhankaso we-PR woMkhakha wezoLimo

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Ngaphandle kwegama layo elizwakala njengezifundo nokusebenzisana nesikhungo se-Ivy League, i- ICornell Alliance yeSayensi (I-CAS) ngumkhankaso wezobudlelwano nomphakathi oxhaswe yiBill & Melinda Gates Foundation oqeqesha abanye abantu emhlabeni jikelele ukukhuthaza nokuvikela izitshalo kanye nezolimo ezikhiqizwa izakhi zofuzo emazweni akubo. Izazi eziningi, ochwepheshe bezinqubomgomo zokudla, amaqembu okudla kanye nawokulima baye babiza imiyalezo enganembile namasu akhohlisayo abangane be-CAS abasebenzise ukuzama ukudicilela phansi ukukhathazeka mayelana nezinye izindlela kwezolimo zezimboni.

NgoSepthemba, i-CAS kumemezela $ 10 million ngemali entsha evela eGates Foundation, okuletha inani eliphelele lamaGates uxhaso ku- $ 22 million kusukela ngo-2014. Imali entsha iza njengoba iGates Foundation injalo sibhekene nokuhlehliswa yizolimo zase-Afrika, amaqembu okholo kanye nezenkolo ngokuchitha izigidigidi zamaRandi ezinhlelweni zokuthuthukisa ezolimo e-Afrika lokho imibukiso yobufakazi yehluleka ukuqeda indlala noma ukuphakamisa abalimi abancane, njengoba zigxila ezindleleni zokulima ezizuzisa izinkampani ngaphezu kwabantu. 

Leli phepha libhala izibonelo eziningi zemininingwane engeyona evela ku-CAS nabantu abaxhumene neqembu. Izibonelo ezichazwe lapha zinikeza ubufakazi bokuthi i-CAS isebenzisa igama likaCornell, idumela negunya lakhe ukuqhubekisela phambili i-PR kanye ne-ajenda yezepolitiki yezinkampani ezinkulu zamakhemikhali nembewu emhlabeni.

Imishini ehambelana nezimboni nemiyalezo

I-CAS yethulwa ngo-2014 ngesibonelelo sika- $ 5.6 million seGates Foundation futhi ithembisa ukuthi “dicilela phansi ”impikiswano cishe ama-GMO. Iqembu kusho umsebenzi wayo “ukukhuthaza ukufinyelela” ezitshalweni nasekudleni kwe-GMO ngokuqeqesha “ababambisene nesayensi” emhlabeni jikelele ukufundisa imiphakathi yabo ngezinzuzo ze-biotechnology yezolimo.

Iqembu lomkhakha wezibulala-zinambuzane likhuthaza i-CAS 

Ingxenye esemqoka yecebo le-CAS ukuqasha nokuqeqesha Abaholi Bomhlaba Wonke Bobuholi kuzindlela zokuxhumana nezokukhuthaza, kugxilwe ezifundeni lapho kunokuphikisana nomphakathi embonini ye-biotech, ikakhulukazi amazwe ase-Afrika amelane nezitshalo ze-GMO.

Umsebenzi we-CAS ufana ngendlela emangalisayo uMkhandlu Wezokwaziswa Kwe-Biotechnology (I-CBI), umkhakha wemboni yezibulala-zinambuzane oxhase uhlelo lobudlelwano bomphakathi olunayo ihlangene neCAS. Iqembu lezimboni lisebenzele ukwakha imifelandawonye ngaphesheya kochungechunge lokudla futhi qeqesha abantu besithathu, ikakhulukazi izifundiswa nabalimi, ukunxenxa umphakathi ukuthi wamukele ama-GMO.

Imiyalezo ye-CAS ihambisana eduze nemboni yezibulala-zinambuzane i-PR: ukugxila kwe-myopic ekutholeni izinzuzo ezikhona zesikhathi esizayo zokudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo ngenkathi kudlalwa phansi, kunganakwa noma kuphikwa izingozi nezinkinga. Njengemizamo yezimboni ze-PR, i-CAS ibuye igxile kakhulu ekuhlaseleni nasekuzameni ukwehlisa isithunzi abagxeki bemikhiqizo yezolimo, kufaka phakathi ososayensi nezintatheli eziphakamisa ukukhathazeka kwezempilo noma kwemvelo.

Ukugxekwa okubanzi

I-CAS nababhali bayo bathole ukugxekwa kwizifundiswa, abalimi, abafundi, amaqembu omphakathi kanye nezinhlangano ezilawula ukudla abathi leli qembu lithuthukisa imiyalezo enganembile futhi edukisayo futhi lisebenzisa amaqhinga angalungile. Bona isibonelo:

Izibonelo zemiyalezo edukisayo

Ochwepheshe bezobunjiniyela, i-biology, i-agroecology nenqubomgomo yokudla babhale izibonelo eziningi zezimangalo ezingalungile ezenziwe nguMark Lynas, umuntu owayevakashele eCornell obhale inqwaba yama-athikili evikela imikhiqizo yezolimo ngegama le-CAS; bona ngokwesibonelo eyakhe izindatshana eziningi ezikhuthazwe yi-Genetic Literacy Project, iqembu le-PR lelo isebenza neMonsanto. Incwadi kaLynas ka-2018 ithi amazwe ase-Afrika amukele ama-GMO, futhi anikeze isahluko ekuvikeleni iMonsanto.

Izimangalo ezinganembile ngama-GMO

Ososayensi abaningi bagxeke uLynas ngokwenza kwabo izitatimende ezingamanga, “Ayinasayensi, ayinangqondo futhi ayinangqondo”Izimpikiswano, ukugqugquzela imfundiso phezu kwedatha nocwaningo kuma-GMO, ukuvuselela amaphuzu okukhuluma embonini, nokwenza izimangalo ezinganembile ngemithi yokubulala izinambuzane “bonisa ukungazi okujulile kwesayensi, noma umzamo osebenzayo wokwenza ukungabaza. ”

"Uhlu lwelondolo lokuthi uMark Lynas wenza iphutha ngani kuma-GMO kanye nesayensi lubanzi, futhi luye lwaphikiswa ngephuzu ngabathile bezazi zezolimo nezazi zezinto eziphilayo," kubhala u-Eric Holt-Giménez, umqondisi omkhulu weFood First, ngo-Ephreli 2013 (uLynas wajoyina uCornell njengomuntu owayevakashile kamuva ngalowo nyaka).  

“Akanabufakazi futhi akanalo iqiniso”

Amaqembu azinze e-Afrika agxeke uLynas isikhathi eside. I-Alliance for Food sobukhosi e-Afrika, umfelandawonye wamaqembu angaphezu kwama-40 okudla nawokulima e-Afrika yonkana uchaze uLynas njengo “ingcwethi yokundiza” “ukudelela abantu base-Afrika, isiko kanye namasiko akhe akungabazeki.” UMillion Belay, umqondisi we-AFSA, kuchaza uLynas njengomuntu "obandlulula ngokobuhlanga ophusha indaba yokuthi ezolimo zezimboni kuphela ezingasindisa i-Afrika."

Ekushicilelweni kwabezindaba kuka-2018, i-African Centre for Biodiversity eseNingizimu Afrika ichaze amaqhinga angekho emthethweni uLynas awasebenzisile ukukhuthaza i-ajenda ye-biotech lobby eTanzania. "Kunodaba olumayelana nokuziphendulela kanye nesidingo sokubusa iCornell Alliance for Science, ngenxa yolwazi okungelona iqiniso nokuthi bangamaqiniso aluhlaza cwe futhi abanalo iqiniso," kusho uMariam Mayet, umqondisi omkhulu we-African Centre for Biodiversity, uthe kwi Julayi 2020 webinar.

Ukuthola ukuhlaziywa okuningiliziwe komsebenzi kaLynas, bheka izindatshana ekugcineni kwalokhu okuthunyelwe nokwethu Ishidi lamaqiniso likaMark Lynas.

Ukuhlasela i-agroecology

Isibonelo sakamuva semiyalezo enganembile yindatshana ebhalwe kabanzi kwi-CAS iwebhusayithi nguLynas ethi, "agro-ecology isengozini yokulimaza abampofu." ?? Izifundiswa zichaze lo mbhalo ngokuthi “ukuchazwa kwedemagogic kanye nokungekhona kwesayensi kwephepha lesayensi, ""ayijulile kakhulu, ""imibono emsulwa ”kanye“ nehlazo kumuntu ofuna ukuzibiza ngokwesayensi, ”ukuhlaziywa okuyiphutha ngempela“?? lokho kwenza “ukwenziwa okwandile“?? futhi “iziphetho zasendle.”Abanye abagxeki kubizwe a ukuhoxa.

Isihloko se-2019 ngozakwabo we-CAS uNassib Mugwanya unikeza esinye isibonelo sokuqukethwe okudukisayo ngesihloko se-agroecology. I-athikili, "Kungani izindlela zendabuko zezolimo zingakwazi ukuguqula ezolimo zase-Afrika," ikhombisa indlela ejwayelekile yokuthumela imiyalezo ezintweni ze-CAS: ukwethula izitshalo ze-GMO njengesikhundla se- "pro-science" ngenkathi kudwetshwa “ezinye izindlela zokuthuthukisa ezolimo njenge 'anti-science, 'akunamhlabathi futhi kuyingozi, ” ngokuya ngokuhlaziya yiSeattle-based Community Alliance for Global Justice.

"Okuqapheleke kakhulu kule ndatshana ukusetshenziswa okunamandla kwezingathekiso (isb. I-agroecology efaniswa nozankosi), ukwenziwa kwezinto ezivamile, ukushiywa kolwazi kanye nokunye okungalungile okuyiqiniso," kusho leli qembu.

Kusetshenziswa ibhuku lokudlala leMonsanto ukuvikela ama-pesticides

Esinye isibonelo semiyalezo edukisayo ehambelana nomkhakha we-CAS singatholakala ekuvikeleni kweqembu i-Roundup-based Roundup. I-herbicides iyinto esemqoka yezitshalo ze-GMO nge Ummbila no-soy ongu-90% kutshalwe e-United States izakhi zofuzo ukubekezelela i-Roundup. Ngo-2015, ngemuva kokuthi iphaneli yocwaningo lomdlavuza le-World Health Organisation lathi i-glyphosate ingumdlavuza wabantu, iMonsanto yahlela ababambisene nabo ukuze "bahlele ukukhala" ngokumelene nephaneli elizimele lesayensi ukuze "livikele isithunzi" seRoundup, ngokusho kwe imibhalo yangaphakathi yeMonsanto.

Ibhuku lokudlala le-Monsanto PR: ukuhlasela ochwepheshe bomdlavuza 'njengezishoshovu'

UMark Lynas usebenzise i- Ipulatifomu ye-CAS ukukhulisa imiyalezo yeMonsanto, echaza umbiko womdlavuza ngokuthi "ukuzingelwa kwabathakathi" okwenziwe "izishoshovu ezilwa neMonsanto" "ezisebenzise kabi isayensi" futhi zenze "ukuphendukezelwa okusobala kwesayensi nobulungiswa bemvelo" ngokubika ingozi yomdlavuza ye-glyphosate. ULynas wasebenzisa okufanayo izimpikiswano ezinamaphutha nemithombo yomkhakha njengoMkhandlu WaseMelika Wezesayensi Nezempilo, a iqembu langaphambili iMonsanto likhokhelwe ukusiza ukuphotha umbiko womdlavuza.

Ngenkathi ethi usehlangothini lwesayensi, uLynas akabunaki ubufakazi obanele obuvela emibhalweni yeMonsanto, kubikwa kabanzi emaphephandabeni, lokho IMonsanto yaphazamisa nge ucwaningo lwesayensi, izinhlaka ezilawulayo ezilawulwayo futhi ngasebenzisa okunye amaqhinga anzima ukukhohlisa inqubo yesayensi ukuvikela i-Roundup. Ku-2018, ijaji lathola iMonsanto leyowenza ngobubi, ukucindezela noma ukukhwabanisa”Ekumbozeni ingozi yomdlavuza yeRoundup.

Ukunxenxa ama-pesticides nama-GMOs eHawaii

Yize ukugxila kwayo okuyinhloko kuyi-Afrika, i-CAS ibuye isize imizamo yomkhakha wezibulala-zinambuzane ukuvikela izibulala-zinambuzane nokujivaza abameli bezempilo yomphakathi eHawaii. Iziqhingi zaseHawaii ziyindawo yokuhlola ebalulekile yezitshalo ze-GMO futhi nendawo ebika ephezulu ukuvezwa kwemithi yokubulala izinambuzane futhi ukukhathazeka ngezinkinga zezempilo ezihlobene ne-pesticides, kufaka phakathi ukukhubazeka kokuzalwa, umdlavuza nesifuba somoya. Lezi zinkinga zaholela abahlali ukuhlela impi ezothatha iminyaka ukwedlulisa imithethonqubo eqinile yokwehlisa ukuvezwa kwemithi yokubulala izinambuzane nokwenza ngcono ukudalulwa kwamakhemikhali asetshenziswa emasimini ezolimo.

“Uqale ukuhlaselwa ngonya”

Njengoba le mizamo ithola ukubambeka, i-CAS ibambe iqhaza “emkhankasweni omkhulu wokungazwakali kwezobudlelwano bomphakathi obenzelwe ukuthulisa ukukhathazeka komphakathi” ngobungozi bezempilo bemithi yokubulala izinambuzane, ngokusho kukaFern Anuenue Holland, umgqugquzeli womphakathi weHawaii Alliance for Progressive Action. E-Cornell Daily Sun, UHolland uchaze ukuthi “ikhokhelwe kanjani iCornell Alliance for Science fellows - ngaphansi kokuqagela ubuchwepheshe besayensi - iqala kanjani ukuhlasela okunonya. Basebenzise izinkundla zokuxhumana futhi babhala inqwaba yama-blog begxeka amalungu omphakathi athintekile nabanye abaholi ababa nesibindi sokukhuluma. ”

UHolland uthe yena namanye amalungu enhlangano yakhe babulawa "ngokubulawa kwabalingiswa, ukumelwa kabi kanye nokuhlaselwa kokwethembeka komuntu siqu kanye nobungcweti" ngabaphethwe yiCAS. “Ngiye ngazibonela ngawami imindeni nobungani bempilo yonke buhlukana,” kubhala yena.

Ukuphikisana nelungelo lomphakathi lokwazi     

Umqondisi we-CAS USarah Evanega, PhD, uye kusho iqembu lakhe ezimele embonini: “Asibhaleli izimboni, futhi asikhuthazi noma siphakamise imikhiqizo ephethwe yimboni. Njengoba iwebhusayithi yethu iveza ngokusobala nangokugcwele, asitholi zinsiza ezivela embonini. ” Kodwa-ke, inqwaba yama-imeyili atholwe yi-US Right to Know, manje athunyelwe ku- Umtapo wolwazi wamakhemikhali we-UCSF, Khombisa i-CAS ne-Evanega bexhumana eduze nemboni yezibulala-zinambuzane namaqembu ayo angaphambili ezinhlelweni zobudlelwano bomphakathi. Izibonelo zifaka:

Ezinye izibonelo zokubambisana kwe-CAS namaqembu ezimboni zichazwe ezansi kwaleli phepha lamaqiniso.  

Ukuphakamisa amaqembu angaphambili nezithunywa ezingathembekile

Emizameni yayo yokuqhakambisa ama-GMO njengesisombululo “esisuselwe kwisayensi” kwezolimo, iCornell Alliance for Science inikeze ithuba layo emaqenjini aphambili embonini ngisho nomuntu ongaziwa ngesayensi yezulu.

UTrevor Butterworth noSense Mayelana neSayensi / STATS: I-CAS ibambisana ne-Sense About Science / STATS ukunikela “ukubonisana kwezibalo zezintatheli”Futhi wanika ukuhlanganyela kumqondisi weqembu uTrevor Butterworth, owakha umsebenzi wakhe wokuvikela imikhiqizo ebalulekile ku Amakhemikhali, ukuthosa, ukudla okungenamsoco futhi izimboni zezidakamizwa. UButterworth ungumphathi ongumsunguli weSense About Science USA, ayihlanganise nesikhungo sakhe sangaphambili, iStatistical Assessment Service (STATS).

Izintatheli zichaze ama-STAT kanye neButterworth njengabadlali ababalulekile emikhankasweni yokuvikela umkhiqizo embonini yamakhemikhali (bheka Izindaba zesitatimende, IMilwaukee Journal Sentinel, I-Intercept futhi I-Atlantic). Imibhalo yeMonsanto iyakhomba I-Sense Mayelana neSayensi phakathi "kozakwethu bemboni" kuthembele ekuvikeleni i-Roundup ekulweni nokukhathazeka komdlavuza.

Isimo sezulu sesayensi yezulu u-Owen Paterson: Ku-2015, i-CAS ibambe u-Owen Paterson, usopolitiki waseBritish Conservative Party futhi owaziwa kakhulu isayensi yezulu ingabaza ngubani kunciphise uxhaso lwemizamo yokunciphisa ukufudumala kwembulunga yonke ngesikhathi sakhe njengoNgqongqoshe Wezemvelo wase-UK. UPaterson usebenzise isigaba saseCornell ukusho ukuthi amaqembu ezemvelo aphakamisa ukukhathazeka ngamaGMOs “vumela izigidi ukuba zife.”Amaqembu embonini yezibulala-zinambuzane asebenzise imiyalezo efanayo eminyakeni engama-50 edlule ukuzama ihlazisa uRachel Carson ngokuveza ukukhathazeka nge-DDT.

Lynas futhi Umuzwa Ngezesayensi: I-Lynas ye-CAS nayo ihlangene ne-Sense About Science njengelungu lebhodi leseluleko lesikhathi eside. Ngo-2015, u-Lynas wabambisana no-Owen Paterson Paterson owayengabaza ngezesimo sezulu kanye no-Sense About Director of Science u-Tracey Brown qalisa lokho akubize "ukunyakaza kwe-ecomodernism," ehambelana ngokubambisana, uhlobo lokulwa nomthethonqubo "kwemvelo."

IHawaii Alliance yezithunywa zeSayensi

Ngo-2016, i-CAS yethule uhlelo lwe- iqembu elihambisanayo elibizwa ngeHawaii Alliance for Science, othe inhloso yayo "ukuxhasa ukwenziwa kwezinqumo okusekelwe ebufakazini kanye nokuqanjwa kwezolimo eziQhingini." Izithunywa zayo zifaka:

USarah Thompson, a owayekade eyisisebenzi seDow AgroSciences, waqondisa i- IHawaii Alliance Yezesayensi, eyayizichaza ngokuthi “iyinhlangano engaphansi engenzi nzuzo yezokuxhumana ehlangene neCornell Alliance for Science.” (Iwebhusayithi ayisabonakali isebenza, kepha iqembu ligcina i- ikhasi Facebook.)

Okuthunyelwe kwezokuxhumana okuvela eHawaii Alliance for Science kanye nomxhumanisi wayo uThompson bachaze abagxeki bemboni yezolimo njengo abantu abazikhukhumezayo nabangazi lutho, kugujwa ummbila kanye nesoya mono-izilimo futhi ukuvikela ama-pesticides we-neonicotinoid okuyinto izifundo eziningi futhi ososayensi bayasho zilimaza izinyosi.

UJoan Conrow, Ukuphatha Umhleli we-CAS, ubhala izindatshana ngaye iwebhusayithi yomuntu siqu, ngamunye "Kauai Eclectic" ibhulogi nangenxa yeqembu eliphambili embonini Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project uzama ukwehlisa isithunzi ochwepheshe bezempilo, amaqembu omphakathi futhi osopolitiki eHawaii abamele ukuvikelwa okunamandla kwezibulala-zinambuzane, nezintatheli ababhala ngokukhathazeka ngezibulala-zinambuzane. IConrow inayo kusolwa amaqembu ezemvelo lokweqa intela kanye kuqhathaniswa neqembu lokuphepha kokudla kuya ku-KKK.

UConrow ubengakudaluli njalo ukuzibandakanya kwakhe neCornell. Iphephandaba laseHawaii i-Civil Beat limgxeke uConrow ngaye ukungabi sobala futhi wamcaphuna ngo-2016 njengesibonelo sokuthi kungani iphepha lishintsha izinqubomgomo zalo zokuphawula. UConrow “wayevame ukuphikisana nombono we-GMO ngaphandle kokuchaza ngokusobala umsebenzi wakhe njengozwela we-GMO,” kubhala uprofesa wezintatheli uBrett Oppegaard. "UConrow ulahlekelwe nayinkululeko yakhe yobuntatheli (nokubika) mayelana nokubika ngokufanele ngezinkinga ze-GMO, ngenxa yomsebenzi wakhe kulezi zinkinga."

UJoni Kamiya, i-CAS ka-2015 Umfo Wobuholi Emhlabeni Wonke uphikisana nemithetho yokubulala izinambuzane kwiwebhusayithi yakhe Indodakazi yoMlimi waseHawaii, In the abezindaba kanye neqembu eliphambili lomkhakha Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project. Ungumama “Uchwepheshe wenxusa” yezimboni zezolimo ezixhaswe ngemali iwebhusayithi yezentengiso Izimpendulo ze-GMO. NjengoConrow, uKamiya uthi ukuvezwa kwezibulala-zinambuzane eHawaii akuyona inkinga, Futhi izama ukudicilela phansi izikhulu ezikhethiwe futhi "Abashisekeli bezemvelo" abafuna ukulawula izibulala-zinambuzane.

ICornell Alliance yabasebenzi beSayensi, abeluleki

I-CAS izichaza ngokuthi "isinyathelo esiseCornell University, isikhungo esingenzi nzuzo." Leli qembu alidaluli isabelomali salo, izindleko zalo noma amaholo abasebenzi, futhi iCornell University ayidaluli noma yiluphi ulwazi mayelana ne-CAS emafayilini ayo.

Uhlu lwewebhusayithi Abasebenzi be-20, kufaka phakathi uMqondisi USarah Evanega, PhD, kanye nokuphatha Umhleli UJoan Conrow (alubhalisi uMark Lynas noma abanye abantu abangathola isinxephezelo). Abanye abasebenzi abaziwayo ababhalwe kuwebhusayithi bafaka:

Ibhodi lokweluleka le-CAS lifaka phakathi izifundiswa ezihlale zisiza imboni yezolimo ngemizamo yazo ye-PR.

IGates Foundation: ukuhlaziywa kwamasu wokuthuthukisa ezolimo 

Kusukela ngo-2016, iGates Foundation isebenzise imali engaphezulu kuka- $ 4 billion kumasu okuthuthukisa ezolimo, okuningi lokho kugxile e-Afrika. Amasu esisekelo wokuthuthukisa ezolimo abekhona eholwa nguRob Horsch (osanda kuthatha umhlalaphansi), a Umakadebona weMonsanto seminyaka engama-25. Amasu adonse ukugxekwa kokuqhakambisa ama-GMO nemikhiqizo yezolimo e-Afrika ukuphikiswa kwamaqembu azinze e-Afrika nokunyakaza komphakathi, futhi ngaphandle kokukhathazeka okuningi nokungabaza ngezitshalo ezakhiwe ngezakhi zofuzo e-Afrika yonkana.

Ukuhlaziywa kwendlela yeGates Foundation yokuthuthukiswa kwezolimo nokuxhaswa ngezimali kubandakanya:

I-Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI), okuyisinyathelo esikhulu sobudlelwano bomphakathi esethulwe eminyakeni engamashumi amabili edlule ngokuhola izinkampani zezolimo ukunxenxa umphakathi ukuthi wamukele ama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane, sekuvalile. Okhulumela i-imeyili ukuqinisekisile nge-imeyili ukuthi i-CBI "ichithakele ekupheleni kuka-2019, nezimpahla zayo, kubalwa nenkundla yezimpendulo i-GMO, zidluliselwe eCrocLife International yaseBelgium."

Ukudalulwa kwangaphambilini kusuka ku-GMOAnswers.com

I-CBI isaqhubeka nokukhuthaza ukubukwa komkhakha namaqembu angaphambili nge ikhasi layo le-Facebook, Its iphrojekthi ye-flagship Izimpendulo ze-GMO, umkhankaso wokumaketha owandisa amazwi ezifundiswa ukukhuthaza ama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane, manje uthi uxhaso lwawo luvela kwaCropLife, iqembu lokuhweba lamazwe omhlaba lezinkampani zokubulala izinambuzane.

GMOAnswers.com iwebhusayithi manje iyachaza, "Kusukela ngo-2020, iGMO Answers wuhlelo lweCropLife International." Le webhusayithi iphinde ibhale umlando waleli qembu “njengomkhankaso owenziwe yi-The Council for Biotechnology Information, onamalungu ayo abandakanya iBASF, Bayer, Dow AgroSciences, iDuPont, iMonsanto Company neSyngenta.”

"Ukuqeqesha abakhulumela abantu besithathu"

I-CBI ichithe imali engaphezu kwezigidi ezingama- $ 28 emizamweni yayo yokuvikela umkhiqizo kusuka ku-2014-2019, ngokusho kwamarekhodi entela. (Amafomu entela neminye imibhalo esekelayo ithunyelwe lapha.)

Amafomu entela aqhakambisa indima ebaluleke kakhulu engabahlanganyeli “bomuntu wesithathu” - ikakhulukazi izifundiswa, odokotela bokudla kanye nabalimi - abadlala imizamo yokuvikela imikhiqizo yezinkampani ezinkulu kunazo zonke emhlabeni zezibulala-zinambuzane nembewu. Into yomugqa kuma-CBI's Ifomu lentela lika-2015 ngezigidi eziyi-1.4 zamaRandi ezichithwe eNyakatho Melika kuyaphawulwa: “ICanada igxile ekuqeqesheni abantu abakhuluma nabo (abalimi, izifundiswa, odokotela bokudla) ukufundisa abezindaba nomphakathi ngezinzuzo ze-ag biotech.” EMexico, ifomu lentela liphawula ukuthi, i-CBI "ibibambe ukuqeqeshwa kwabezindaba nezingqungquthela zabafundi, abalimi, kanye nezifundiswa" futhi "ibambisene namaqembu abalimi, izifundiswa, kanye nohlu lokudla ukuqinisa ukwamukelwa" kwama-GMO. I-CBI futhi "idale izingxoxo zenqubomgomo zomthethoama-ators. ”

Izindleko ezinkulu ze-CBI, ezingaphezu kwezigidi eziyi-14 zamaRandi kusukela ngo-2013, zazenzelwe Inkampani yakwaKetchum yomphakathi ukwenza i-GMO Answers, ekhuthaza amazwi nokuqukethwe kochwepheshe "abazimele", iningi labo elinobudlelwano nomkhakha wezibulala-zinambuzane. Yize izimpendulo zeGMO ziveza uxhaso lwezimboni zalo, imisebenzi ibe ngaphansi kokusobala.

Amanye amaqembu axhaswe yi-CBI afaka i-Global Farmer's Network kanye Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa, inhlangano engenzi nzuzo ehlele uchungechunge lwe “Amakamu ebhuthi” emanyuvesi aphezulu ukuqeqesha ososayensi nezintatheli ukukhuthaza nokunxenxa ama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane.

I-CBI nayo ikhiqize incwadi yezingane yokufaka imibala nomsebenzi ukugqugquzela imibono yezimboni kwi-biotechnology. I- isixhumanisi sencwadi, kanye newebhusayithi ye-WhyBiotech.com eyenziwe yi-CBI, manje eqondisa kabusha eqenjini lokuhweba labakhiqizi nabasabalalisi bama-cannabinoids asuselwa ku-hemp.

I-Backstory: Ukwakha umbono womphakathi ngama-GMO

The I-backstory ye-CBI yachazwa ngo-2001 ngumhlaziyi wemboni yezobudlelwano bomphakathi uPaul Holmes, umsunguli we-PRovoke (phambilini owaba yiHolmes Report): Ngo-1999, izinkampani eziyisikhombisa ezihamba phambili zokubulala izinambuzane kanye namaqembu azo ezohwebo “zahlangana njengomfelandawonye futhi zakha uhlelo lolwazi lomphakathi oluholwa umkhakha” "Kwakha umbono womphakathi kanye nokwakhiwa kwenqubomgomo yomphakathi nge-biotechnology yokudla." I-CBI "izokwakha ubuhlobo phakathi kwento yonke yokudla"… ukugxila ekukhuthazeni izinzuzo ze-biotechnology yokudla, ”kubika uHolmes.

“Umkhankaso ungaphikisana nokugxekwa kokuthi ukudla kwe-biotech bekungaphephile, ngokugcizelela ukuhlolwa okubanzi kokudla kwe-biotech,” futhi “kuzohlelwa ukuze kuphendulwe imibuzo nokukhathazeka okuvela emphakathini futhi kuphendulwe ulwazi olungelona iqiniso kanye 'nokwethusa amaqhinga' ngabaphikisi be-biotechnology , ”Kuphawula uHolmes. Uchaze ukuthi imininingwane izotholwa ngumphakathi "hhayi kuphela ngemboni ye-biotechnology, kodwa ngemithombo ehlukahlukene yezemfundo, isayensi, uhulumeni kanye nemithombo ezimele, evela eceleni."

Ukuvela kweminyaka emibili kwe-CBI nakho kugcizelela ukuhlanganiswa kwamandla embonini yezibulala-zinambuzane / i-GMO. Isungula amalungu e-CBI ayekhona I-BASF, iDow Chemical, iDuPont, iMonsanto, iNovartis, imikhiqizo yeZeneca Ag, i-Aventis CropScience, i-American Crop Protection Association (manje eyiCropLife) ne-BIO.

Lezi zinkampani eziyisikhombisa selokhu zahlanganiswa zaba ezine: I-Aventis neMonsanto zamuncwa Bayer; IDow Chemical neDuPont baba yiDow / DuPont futhi baqala imisebenzi yebhizinisi lezolimo ukuze ICorteva Agriscience; INovartis neZenica (ezahlanganiswa kamuva ne-Astra) zahlangana ndawonye ngaphansi kwesibhengezo se- Syngenta (okwathi kamuva yaphinde yathola iChemChina); ngenkathi BASF kutholakale okuphawulekayo izimpahla ezivela eBayer.

Ifomu lentela le-CBI: ligxile kubantu besithathu

I-CBI isebenzise ngaphezulu kwe- $ 28 million kusuka ku-2014-2019, ngokusho kwamarekhodi wentela (bona 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) kumaphrojekthi akhuthaza ukudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo. Njengoba kuphawulwe kwifomu lentela ka-2015, I-CBI ibigxile ngokusobala ekuthuthukiseni nasekuqeqesheni abakhulumeli benkampani yangaphandle - ikakhulukazi izifundiswa, abalimi kanye nochwepheshe bezokudla - ukukhuthaza imibono yezimboni ngezinzuzo zama-GMO.

Amaphrojekthi axhaswe yi-CBI afaka izimpendulo ze-GMO (ngefemu yezobudlelwano bomphakathi neKetchum); Ukubuyekezwa kwezifundo, iqembu elalithi alizimele ngemboni; Izinkambu zeBiotech Literacy Project ezinkampanini ezibanjelwe emanyuvesi aphezulu (nge-Academics Review) kanye neGlobal Farmer Network.

Izimpendulo ze-GMO / Ketchum

Izimpendulo ze-GMO yi- iwebhusayithi yezokumaketha kanye nomkhankaso wobudlelwano bomphakathi esebenzisa amazwi ezifundiswa nabanye ukukhuthaza ukudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo kanye nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane. I-CBI isebenzise amaRandi ayizigidi ezingama-14.4 enkampanini yezobudlelwano bomphakathi neKetchum phakathi kuka-2014-2019 ukuqhuba i-PR salvo, ngokusho kwamafomu entela.

Izimpendulo zeGMO ziveza uxhaso lwazo lomkhakha kwiwebhusayithi yayo futhi ithi ithuthukisa imibono yochwepheshe abazimele. Kodwa-ke, izibonelo zivele ukuthi uKetchum PR wabhala ezinye zezimpendulo ze-GMO ezinikezwa "ochwepheshe abazimele" (bheka izindaba ku New York Times futhi Forbes). Izimpendulo zeGMO zivela nasemibhalweni kaMonsanto PR njengabalingani emizameni yomkhakha yokwenza vikela ama-herbicides asuselwa ku-glyphosate kusuka ekukhathazekeni komdlavuza, naku zama ukudicilela phansi ucwaningo lwezintshisekelo zomphakathi uphenyo olwenziwe yi-US Right to Know ukuthola ubudlelwano obufihliwe phakathi kwezinkampani zokubulala izinambuzane kanye nezifundiswa ezithuthukisa imikhiqizo yezolimo.

Isibonelo sendlela izimpendulo zeGMO ezakha ngayo ithonya ngezintatheli ezibalulekile, bheka kubika eHuffington Post mayelana nokuthi uKetchum ubuhlobo obulinyiwe nomlobi wephephandaba waseWashington Post uTamar Haspel. UHaspel wayeyi umgqugquzeli wokuqala we-GMO Answers, futhi kamuva wabamba iqhaza kwi-CBI exhaswa ngemali Iphrojekthi Ye-Biotech Literacy imicimbi yemiyalezo. A ukubuyekezwa komthombo kwamakholomu kaHaspel aqhutshwa yi-USRTK uthole izibonelo eziningana zemithombo engaziwa yomkhakha nolwazi oludukisayo kuma-athikili akhe mayelana nezibulala-zinambuzane.

Izimpendulo zeGMO zamukelwa njengomzamo ophumelelayo we-spin ngo-2014 lapho wawunjalo kufakwe ohlwini lomklomelo wokukhangisa we-CLIO esigabeni se- "Public Relations: Crisis Management & Issue Management." Kwividiyo ekhiqizelwe lo mklomelo, uKetchum uziqhayisa ngokuthi i-GMO Answers "icishe yaphindeka kabili ukusakazwa kwabezindaba ngama-GMO," futhi wathi "bayayiqapha ngokusobala ingxoxo" ku-Twitter lapho "balinganise ngempumelelo ukusebenzisana okungu-80% nabaphikisi." Le vidiyo isuswe ngemuva kokuthi i-US Right to Know iyinakile, kepha thina uyigcine lapha.

Iphrojekthi ye-Biotech Literacy Project yenza imicimbi

I-CBI ichithe imali engaphezulu kwama- $ 300,000 kokukabili “Izinkambu zeBiotech Literacy Project”Eyayibanjelwe e-University of Florida ngo-2014 nase-University of California, eDavis ngo-2015, ngokusho kwamarekhodi entela. Le mali ihanjiswe nge-Academics Review, ebihlele izingqungquthela kanye ne- Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project, elinye iqembu elisiza iMonsanto ngamaphrojekthi we-PR ngenkathi ithi izimele.

Izinsuku ezintathu imicimbi yekamu ebhuthini eqeqeshiwe abafundi, ososayensi kanye nezintatheli ezindleleni zokuxhumana nezokunxenxa ukukhuthaza nokuvikela ama-GMO nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane, futhi babe nezinhloso ezicacile zezepolitiki zokunqanda ukufakwa kwelebuli le-GMO e-US

I-Val Giddings: Ukusebenza Okuphezulu Kwemboni Yezolimo

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

I-Val Giddings, i-PhD, ingumdlali ophambili emizamweni yezimboni yezolimo yokuphikisana nemithetho ebonakalayo kanye nezokuphepha yokudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo kanye nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane. Ama-imeyili atholwe yi-US Right to Know futhi athunyelwa ku- Umtapo Wezincwadi Wemibhalo Yezimboni ze-UCSF kukhombisa ukuthi uDkt. Giddings usize ukusungula iqembu eliphambili lezinkampani futhi wadlala indima ebalulekile ekusithekeni kweminye imisebenzi ukuphoqa uhlelo lokususa izinkampani ezinkulu zezolimo emhlabeni.

UDkt Giddings wayeyiphini likamongameli we-Biotechnology Industry Organisation (BIO), okuyiqembu lezokuhweba lezinkampani ze-agrichemical kanye ne-biotechnology. Manje uphethe inkampani yabeluleki i-PrometheusAB, futhi ungumuntu ophakeme ku-Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF).

I-ITIF iyithangi lokucabanga ixhaswe izimboni zemithi, ezingenantambo, ezokuxhumana ngocingo, ezamafilimu nezama-biotech, aziwa kakhulu nge ukuphikisana “nokungathathi hlangothi ngokuphelele"Futhi ukugqugquzela i-ajenda yomkhakha wezobuchwepheshe. Iqembu yathuthela ku-biotechnology ngo-2011 noDkt. Giddings. Amalungu eCongress asebenza "njengosihlalo abahloniphekile" be-ITIF, kufaka phakathi nabameli baseMelika U-Anna Eshoo (D-CA), UDarrell Issa (R-CA) kanye namaSenat I-Orrin Hatch (R-UT) futhi UChris Coons (D-DE), kubonakala sengathi bayasekela futhi basiza amasu kagwayi uDkt Giddings awasebenzisile ukuthuthukisa izintshisekelo zomkhakha wezolimo.

Kuphekwe iqembu eliphambili lezemfundo ukudicilela phansi abagxeki beMonsanto

Ama-imeyili atholwe yi-US Right to Know akhombisa ukuthi uDkt. Giddings ubambe iqhaza elibalulekile ekumiseni Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa njengeqembu eliphambili owathi ngamanga wazimela ngenkathi ethatha imali yezimboni zezolimo futhi ezama ukugcina izigxivizo zeminwe zenkampani zifihliwe.

Abanye abahleli abakhulu babekhona UJay Byrne, owayengumqondisi wezokuxhumana ezinkampani eMonsanto; UBruce Chassy, ​​PhD, uprofesa osafufusa eNyuvesi yase-Illinois e-Urbana-Champaign; futhi U-Eric Sachs, PhD, umqondisi wenqubomgomo yokulawula nezindaba zesayensi eMonsanto.

Ukubuyekezwa kwezifundo kungamanga izimangalo kuwebhusayithi yayo ukuthi ayemukeli imali yenkampani noma icela iminikelo yemisebenzi ethile; kepha ngokusho kwamafomu entela, iningi lemali yokuxhaswa kwe-Academics Review ivela kuMkhandlu Wezolwazi Lwezinto Eziphilayo, iqembu lokuhweba elixhaswe futhi liphethwe izinkampani ezinkulu zamakhemikhali emhlabeni: I-BASF, iBayer / iMonsanto, iDowDuPont neSyngenta / ChemChina.

Umugqa wesikhathi wemicimbi ebalulekile yokubuyekezwa kwezifundo:

NgoMashi 11, 2010: Byrne noDkt Chassy uxoxe ngokusungula ukubuyekeza kwe-Academics njengeqembu langaphambili ukukhomba abagxeki bama-GMO nezibulala-zinambuzane ngosizo oluvela kuDkt Giddings. U-Byrne uthe yena noDkt. Giddings bangasebenza "njengezimoto ezithengiswayo" ukuxhuma amabhizinisi ezinkampani kuphrojekthi "ngendlela esiza ukuqinisekisa ukuthembeka nokuzimela (futhi ngaleyo ndlela kube nenani) labanikeli / abanikazi bokuqala ..." UByrne uqaphele ukuthi uyathuthuka yeMonsanto uhlu lwabagxeki bezimboni zezolimo abazolubhekisa:

NgoMashi 24, 2010:  UDkt Chassy umkhankaso iwebsite ye-Academics Review kanye noDavid Tribe, PhD, umfundisi omkhulu eNyuvesi yaseMelbourne, e-Australia, bobabili abesilisa ababalwe njengabaqambi bezifundo.

Ngo-Novemba 23, 2010: UDkt Giddings noDkt Chassy baxoxe ngokuthi yiziphi izinkampani namaqembu ezimboni kungenzeka "iponele" Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa ukuphikisa iphepha lokho kwagxeka u-soy owenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo.

  • "Ngibheja ukuthi singaletha ukusekelwa okuhloniphekile ngakho," kusho uDkt. Giddings ebhalela uDkt. Chassy.
  • UChassy uphendule ngokwengxenye, "Ngibheja abangani bethu eMonsanto bazovuma ukubhala lesi sinqumo bese besikhokhela ukuthi sikuthumele."
  • UGiddings ubhale wathi, "Ngicabanga ukuthi abafana bakasoya bangase bazimisele ukwenza iphoyinti elithile ukuze babhale ukuphikiswa… Uma senza lokhu kahle singasebenzisa i-AcaRev Brand lapha kancane."

Ngemuva kwesonto, UDkt Chassy ubuze u-Eric Sachs uma uMonsanto ehlela ukuphikisa iphepha le-soy, futhi watshela iSachs: "IBhodi lase-US Soybean lizojabulisa isiphakamiso esivela kimi noGraham Brookes sokuphendula kuleso siqephu." (Ukubuyekezwa Kwezemfundo kuthumele i- impendulo kusuka kwaCassy naseBrookes ngonyaka wezi-2012 kungadalulwa lutho ngabaxhasi.)

Ngo-Novemba 30, 2010: Ekushintshaneni nge-imeyili noDkt. Chassy, ​​u-Eric Sachs waseMonsanto uthe angasiza ekugqugquzeleni umuthi wokubulala izinambuzane kanye ne-GMO amaqembu okuhweba embonini ukuxhasa ukubukezwa kwezifundo. "Ukhiye kuzoba ukugcina iMonsanto ingemuva ukuze ingalimazi ukwethembeka kolwazi," kubhala uSachs.

Agasti 2011: UDkt Giddings ufake isiphakamiso ku iqembu lezokuhweba elixhaswe ngezimboni yi-CBI kwephrojekthi: "esikwenzayo ngonyaka ozayo ngqo kungumsebenzi wokuxhaswa esingakuthola," ubhalele uMqondisi Ophethe we-CBI u-Ariel Gruswich, nge-imeyili ekopishelwe uDkt. I-Chassy ne-Tribe. UGruswich unxuse la madoda ukuba ahlanganyele ucingo neqembu lakhe: "Ngikholwa ngempela ukuthi ukuzwa ngqo kini nonke kuzokhulisa amathuba okuxhaswa ezinkampanini," ubhale kanje. Amarekhodi entela akhombisa ukuthi i-CBI exhaswe yinkampani inikeze i-Academics Review $ 650,000 kusuka 2014 kuya 2016 "ukufinyelela kwesayensi."

April 2014: I-Academics Review ishicilele umbiko ohlasela imboni yezimboni njengomkhonyovu wokumaketha, futhi abathi bayiqembu elizimele elingenakho ukungqubuzana kwezintshisekelo. Bona: "Izigxivizo zeminwe zeMonsanto zitholakale yonke indawo ihlaselwa ngokudla okunemvelo, ” nguStacy Malkan, Huffington Post

Ososayensi abaqeqeshwe ngezimboni abaqeqeshwe yizintatheli, izintatheli ukuthi zingawajikisa kanjani ama-GMO kanye ne-pesticides  

Imali engaphezulu kwama- $ 300,000 embonini yamakhemikhali uDkt Giddings isize ukukhulisa i-Academics Review yaya ukukhokhela izingqungquthela ezimbili ezibizwa nge- Izinkambu zebhuthi ze- “Biotech Literacy Project”, ebanjelwe University of Florida e 2014 futhi UC Davis ngo-2015, ngokusho kwamarekhodi entela. Amakamu ama-boot - ahlelwe yi-Academics Review nelinye iqembu eliphambili embonini,  Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project - izintatheli eziqeqeshiwe nososayensi ukuthi bangayiqamba kanjani kabusha impikiswano mayelana nama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane.

Bona: “Ukuhlwanyela ama-GMO: Imboni ye-Biotech iyikhulisa kanjani imithombo yezindaba efanelekile - futhi ayikukhuthazi ukugxekwa, ”NguPaul Thacker, I-Progressive

Ukususa ama-GMO kokulawula: "shaya yonke into embi"

Kuma-imeyili angoFebhuwari 2015, uDkt. Giddings uxoxe ngezifundiswa eziningana ngohlelo lokubhala amaphepha amahlanu ephephabhuku aphikisana nesidingo sokususwa komthetho embonini ye-biotech. UDkt. Giddings ubhale ukuthi la maphepha kufanele abambe, “lokhu engikubiza ngokuthi ingxabano kaHenry ethi 'Blow the whole damn thing up', okuyicala engicabanga ukuthi kufanele lenziwe.” Uprofesa wezomthetho wase-University of Arizona uGary Marchant, owaqala ukushintshana ngama-imeyili, wachaza, "iphepha 1 kuhloswe ngalo ukuthi kube yilo elihlasela isihloko sonke."

Alan McHughen, uthisha womkhakha womphakathi e-UC Riverside futhi “Uchwepheshe wenxusa” yezimboni zezolimo ezixhaswe ngemali umkhankaso wokumaketha Izimpendulo ze-GMO, unikele ukubhala iphepha 1. UHenry Miller, MD, uthe angasiza kepha kuningi abengakusebenzisa ukuze abe ngumbhali oyinhloko. (Ngemuva kwenyanga, uMiller wathumela isihloko ku Forbes ukuthi the New York Times kamuva wembula kwakubhalwe ghost nguMonsanto.)

Abanye abakopishe nge-imeyili mayelana namaphepha wephephabhuku babe UDrew Kershen weYunivesithi yase-Oklahoma College of Law; UGuy Cardineau, UYvonne Stevens futhi ULauren Burkhart wase-Arizona State University; USteven Strauss Oregon State University; UKevin Folta weYunivesithi yaseFlorida; UShane Morris we Ezemvelo Canada; U-Alison Van Eenennaam ka-UC Davis; UJoanna Sax weCalifornia Western School of Law; futhi UThomas Reddick we-Global Environmental Ethics Council.

Incwadi esayinwe ngusosayensi edidiyelwe ephikisana nocwaningo lweSeralini

NgoSepthemba 2012, uDkt Giddings uxhumanise incwadi yokungena ngemvume yososayensi kunxusa uWallace Hayes, umhleli oyinhloko we Ukudla kanye Nezokwelapha Kwezolimo, ukucabanga kabusha ngephepha likaSepthemba 2012 ngumcwaningi waseFrance uGilles-Éric Séralini owabika izicubu kumagundane ezondla ukudla kommbila we-Roundup-tolerant GM. Leli phepha lahlehliswa ngemuva konyaka futhi laphinde lashicilelwa komunye umagazini.

Ukusiza ukuxhumanisa isibonakaliso encwadini, uDkt. esetshenziselwa ukuxhumanisa imisebenzi yokuthumela imiyalezo nokunxenxa. Omunye uprofesa osayine le ncwadi, uChris Leaver, uqaphele ukuthi "ubekade enza ngemuva kwezigcawu echaza ngeSense About Science" mayelana nocwaningo lwaseSéralini. I-Sense About Science inomlando omude of ukuphotha isayensi ukuze kuzuze izintshisekelo zebhizinisi.

Abalimi abangomama abaphakanyisiwe kufanele bafake ama-GMO

Ezingxoxweni ne-lobbyist yeMonsanto mayelana nokuthi ingahlulwa kanjani imikhankaso yokufaka ilebula ye-GMO eColorado nase-Oregon ngo-2014, uDkt. Giddings uphakamise ukuthi “abalimi abangomama” ababukeka kahle bazoba yizithunywa ezinhle kakhulu zokudambisa ukukhathazeka ngokudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo. “Okudingwa yisimo ukuthi indawo yezindawo ze-TV ezinabesifazane abasha abakhangayo, okungcono abalimi bomama, echaza ukuthi kungani ukudla okutholwe nge-biotech kuphephe kakhulu futhi kuluhlaza kunazo zonke emlandweni we-ag futhi okufanele ukwesekwa, ”uDkt. Giddings ubhalele uLisa Drake, umkhokheli kaMonsanto wezindaba zikahulumeni.

NgoSepthemba 2015 ikhasi lokuqala New York Times story, ophumelele amahlandla amathathu iPulitzer Prize Eric Lipton uchaze ama-imeyili:

"Ku lokhu kunwetshwa kwe-imeyili okunwetshiwe, abanye bososayensi nezifundiswaabaye baqashwa ukusiza iMonsanto ukuthi iphushe umbuzo wayo wokuthi ngabe bayizithunywa ezihamba phambili yini. Ababili basikisela ukuthi iMonsanto isebenzise izikhangiso eziningi zethelevishini ezinabalimi esikhundleni salokho. I-Monsanto lobbyist iphendula ukuthi ukuvota kukhombisa ukuthi umphakathi uyakholelwa ososayensi. Empeleni le nkampani isivele inezikhangiso ze-TV ezinabalimi besifazane. ”

Bona: “Imboni yezokudla ibhalise izifundiswa kwi-GMO ebeka impi, ama-imeyili akhombisa, ”Ngu-Eric Lipton, New York Times.

UKeith Kloor: Indlela intatheli yesayensi esebenza ngayo ekusithekeni nabalingani bemboni

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

UKeith Kloor uyintatheli ezisebenza ngokuzimela futhi uyilungu le-adjunct journalism faculty e University of New York obhalele i- Imvelo, Isayensi Ngaphakathi, Isilayidi kanye nezindatshana eziningi ze- Thola Umagazini ukugqugquzela ukudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo nokuhlasela abagxeki bemboni yezolimo, kuyilapho kusizwa nabalingani bemboni ekusithekeni.

Ama-imeyili atholwe yi-US Right to Know, athunyelwe ku- Umtapo Wezincwadi Wemibhalo Yezimboni ze-UCSF, iveze izimo lapho uKloor aqeqesha futhi ahlela khona imithombo yakhe, afihla izimboni zomthombo womthombo, futhi abike ngokukhethekile ngolwazi ngezindlela eziqinisa ukulandisa kwemboni. UKloor unqabile ukuphendula imibuzo yalesi sihloko.

Ukukhululwa kokukhetha, okukhethiwe kwama-imeyili we-FOIA

Kusukela ngo-2015 kuya ku-2017, iKloor ibike ukuthi Nature, Isayensi Insider, Discover, Izinkinga Kwezesayensi Nobuchwepheshe, Futhi Slate on a uphenyo lwamarekhodi womphakathi yi-US Right to Know eveze ubudlelwano obungadalulwanga phakathi kwemboni yezolimo kanye nezifundiswa ezixhaswe esidlangalaleni ezithuthukisa imikhiqizo yezolimo, kufaka phakathi USolwazi Kevin Folta wase-University of Florida. Kuzozonke izingcezu ezishicilelwe, uKloor wafaka izicelo zamarekhodi omphakathi njengomthwalo ongadingekile kwizifundiswa.

Ama-imeyili atholakele ngezicelo zamarekhodi wombuso aveza ukuthi uKloor uqobo wayeyingxenye yendaba ayebika ngayo; ubekade ehambele izingqungquthela zokuqeqesha imiyalezo ezixhaswe umkhakha wezolimo noDkt. Folta futhi wasiza uDkt Folta ngokuthumela imiyalezo. Ukuxhumana kukhombisa ukuthi uDkt Folta welule isandla kuKloor ukuze asikisele ukuthi akhululwe ama-imeyili akhe “ngaphambi kokulungiselela” ukusiza ukunciphisa umonakalo wamadokhumende - uKloor akwenzayo, kumagazini Nature. Ngesikhathi esifanayo lapho uKloor ebekhuluma ngendaba yezincwadi eziphambili zesayensi, amadokhumende akhombisa ukuthi wabamba iqhaza ezingxoxweni nabangaphakathi embonini mayelana nezinselelo ezibangelwa izicelo zamarekhodi omphakathi.

Umugqa wesikhathi wokubika nokusebenzisana:

Ukuqeqesha, ukuhlela imithombo; kufihla ubuhlobo bemboni

Ama-imeyili akhombisa ukuthi uKloor usebenze nemithombo yakhe ekusithekeni ukucija imiyalezo yabo ukusekela imbangela yezimboni yezolimo: ukukholisa abathengi abaqaphile ukwamukela ukudla okwenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo. Enye yale mithombo kwakungu UDkt Kevin Folta, iNyuvesi yaseFlorida uprofesa owayengumuntu osemqoka uKloor evezwe ezindabeni azibhalela ezincwadini zesayensi ngokusebenza obala kwezemfundo.

Umkhankaso wokuguqula uBill Nye

NgoNovemba 2014, uKloor wasebenzisa eyakhe Discover blog ukufaka inselelo Ukugxeka kukaBill Nye mayelana nama-GMO nge "Incwadi evulekile eya kuBill Nye evela kuSosayensi Wezitshalo" esayinwe nguDkt. Folta. Ama-imeyili akhombisa ukuthi uKloor ubuzile UDkt Folta ukuphonsela inselelo uNye, weza nomqondo wencwadi evulekile futhi uqeqeshe uDkt Folta ukuthi abhalwa kanjani. Wabe-ke kuhlelwe i-biography kaDkt Folta ukugwema ukubalula imali yezimboni, ngokusho kwama-imeyili.

Ama-imeyili akhombisa ukuthi uKloor wabhalela uDkt. Folta uhlu lwezinto eziphilayo olufaka phakathi umugqa othi, “Alukho ucwaningo oluxhaswe yiMonsanto.” UDkt. Folta umcele ukuthi alungise leso sigwebo, ebona ukuthi iMonsanto ngokungaqondile ixhase eminye yemizamo yakhe yokufinyelela kubantu nge-biotech nokuthi uthole imali yocwaningo enkampanini encane ye-biotech. UKloor uthathe isinqumo ngomlando ongagwegwesi ukubalula ngezimali zemboni kaDkt Folta ngokuphelele: “Ucwaningo lwakhe luxhaswe yizinhlangano zombuso nezikahulumeni.”

Ku-imeyili engezansi, uKloor unikeze uDkt Folta umhlahlandlela wokuthi uyibhalela kanjani uNye incwadi:

Cishe ngaleso sikhathi, iMonsanto nayo yayinxenxa uNye ukuthi ashintshe isikhundla sakhe kuma-GMO, ekugcineni waphumelela ukwenza. Mashi 2015 Washington Post indaba mayelana nokuguquka kukaNye kwasho ukuthi ukugxeka kukaNye amaGMO “kwacasula ososayensi abaningi,” kodwa kwaxhunyaniswa kuphela nencwadi kaDkt Folta kubhulogi likaKloor.

Thola: "Akuyona inqubomgomo yethu yokwazisa imithombo"

Ama-imeyili avela ngo-Agasti 2014 akhombisa uKloor enikeza iseluleko semiyalezo kuDkt Folta kanye nomunye umthombo, uDkt Karl Haro von Mogel, umqondisi wezindaba Iqembu lephromoshini le-GMO iBiofortified. UKloor ubacele ukuba bahlaziye udaba lukaCarole Bartolotto, udokotela wezokudla obebhale ngokugxeka ngama-GMO. Ama-imeyili akhombisa lokho UKloor ukuhlelile ukuphawula nezindlela eziphakanyisiwe zokuqinisa imiyalezo: “Iseluleko sami: gcina ulimi lungathathi hlangothi futhi lungahluleli ngangokunokwenzeka. Ubheke abantu abahlala kocingo, abangahle bavinjwe ulimi olukhulunywa kabi. ”

UKloor uthumele ukugxekwa kweBartolotto kweyakhe Discover blog futhi wachaza uDkt. Folta no-von Mogel "njengososayensi ababili abangalutholi uxhaso embonini ye-biotech." Ama-imeyili kamuva aveze ukuthi, emasontweni ambalwa ngaphambili, iMonsanto yayinayo uvumile ukuxhasa ezikaDkt. Folta imizamo yokukhangisa yama-GMO; futhi, ehlobo eledlule, uDkt Folta wahlela ukuvakashela eHawaii eyonxenxa imingcele yokubulala izibulala-zinambuzane ohambweni ihlelwe futhi ikhokhelwa yiqembu lokuhweba lomkhakha wezibulala-zinambuzane (UDkt von Mogel naye wayefakiwe kulawo ma-imeyili). I-athikili kaKloor isavela ku- Discover iwebhusayithi ngaphandle kokuvuselelwa noma ukulungiswa.

Okwe-2017 Isihloko sokubhalwa kukaHuffington, kubuza intatheli uPaul Thacker Discover umhleli wephephabhuku u-Becky Lang ukuze aphawule ngama-imeyili eBartolotto. ULang unqabile ukuphawula ngokuningiliziwe, kodwa wathi: “Impela, akusiyo inqubomgomo yethu manje, futhi akukaze kube njalo, ukugqugquzela imithombo ukuthi ibhale ukugxeka, ukuhlela ukugxeka, bese ikwenza njengokuzimela. Futhi akuyona inqubomgomo yethu ukuthi imithombo yosizo izame ukufihla ubudlelwane bayo bemboni. ” (EzikaKloor Discover I-blog yaphela ngo- yaphela ngo-Ephreli 2015.)

UJon Entine, uxhumano lweProjekthi ye-Genetic Literacy Project  

Imibhalo emikhulu kaKloor evikela imboni yezolimo ingabukwa kuwebhusayithi ye I-Genetic Literacy Project, iwebhusayithi yokwazisa yomkhakha wezolimo lokho izindatshana eziningi ebhalwe nguKloor noma ecaphuna umsebenzi wakhe. IGenetic Literacy Project ilawulwa nguJon Entine, osebenza isikhathi eside PR okhuthaza futhi avikele izintshisekelo zemboni yamakhemikhali. U-Entine unguthishanhloko we-PR firm ESG MediaMetrics, amaklayenti akhe afaka iMonsanto. AbakwaKloor no-Entine basebenzisa imiyalezo efanayo futhi babeke izingqinamba ngezindlela ezifanayo, futhi babonakala benobudlelwano obusondelene, ngokusho kwama-imeyili.

Nge-imeyili kaJulayi 2013 eya eqenjini lokwamukela izimboni zezibulala-zinambuzane, u-Entine uchaze uKloor njenge “umngani wami omuhle kakhulu”Ngubani ongasiza ekuthengiseni umhlangano nomunye Discover blogger ukubhala ngemisebenzi yezimboni yezolimo eHawaii. Enye i-imeyili ikhombisa i-Entine exhuma iKloor noRebecca Goldin eGeorge Mason University ukuxoxa "ngokuhlukunyezwa kwe-FOIA." UGoldin usebenza nowayengumqashi we-Entine i-STATS, iqembu lezintatheli elizichaze njengeumkhankaso we-disinformation”Lokho isebenzisa amaqhinga kagwayi kuya kwakha ukungabaza ngengozi yamakhemikhali.

Kwenye i-imeyili evela ngo-Okthoba 2014, uKloor wayeyintatheli kuphela owayefakwe kwi-imeyili exwayisa inkampani yakwaKetchum yezobudlelwano bomphakathi mayelana ukusebenza okungenzeka kube nokugenca kumawebhusayithi ezinkampani yiqembu elingaziwa.

Imibhalo Eyimfihlo Idalula Impi kaMonsanto Ngososayensi Bomdlavuza

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

NguStacy Malkan (kubuyekezwe ngoMeyi 17, 2019)

UDeWayne Johnson, ubaba oneminyaka engama-46 obulawa yi-non-Hodgkin lymphoma, waba ngumuntu wokuqala ukubhekana IMonsanto ecaleni ngoJuni odlule ngenxa yezinsolo inkampani yafihla ubufakazi ngezingozi ezibangelwa umdlavuza ze-Roundup weedkiller yayo. Amajaji aselokhu abuya nawo ezintathu ngazwi linye izinqumo ukuthola ukuthi i-glyphosate-based Roundup herbicides iyimbangela enkulu yomdlavuza, futhi yalinganisa umonakalo omkhulu wokujeziswa kweBayer (manje esingeyaseMonsanto). Izinkulungwane eziningi zabantu zimangalele izinkantolo zombuso nezikahulumeni, kanye nemibhalo yezinkampani ephuma ezivivinyweni ikhanya kakhulu kumaqhinga anzima iMonsanto esetshenziselwa ukuphika ingozi yomdlavuza nokuvikela ikhemikhali elaliyi lynchpin yenzuzo yayo.

“IMonsanto kwakungumbhali waso wesipoki ngokubuyekezwa kokuphepha, ”kubika iBloomberg, kanye nesikhulu se-EPA kubikwa ukuthi wasiza uMonsanto “Bulala” ucwaningo lomdlavuza lwenye i-ejensi (lokho kuphuma, manje kuphelile qinisekisa isixhumanisi somdlavuza ku-glyphosate). An uphenyo olwawina imiklomelo eLe Monde Imininingwane yokuthi uMonsanto uzame kanjani “ukubhubhisa i-ejensi yomdlavuza yeZizwe Ezihlangene nganoma iyiphi indlela” ukusindisa i-glyphosate. Izindatshana zeJenali ezisuselwa ekubukezweni kombiko wemibhalo yokutholwa kwesilingo seRoundup ukuphazamiseka kwebhizinisi encwadini yesayensi kanye nenhlangano elawula umthetho, nezinye iziboneloukufaka ubuthi emthonjeni wesayensi. "

“Ukubhalwa kwesipoki kukaMonsanto nokuqinisa izikhali kusongela isayensi yomsindo nomphakathi, "Kubhala uSolwazi waseTufts University uSheldon Krimsky ngoJuni 2018. Uthe imibhalo etholakele," yembula ukuthunjwa kwesayensi okuyinkampani, okubeka impilo yomphakathi kanye nesisekelo sentando yeningi engcupheni. "

Kusukela lapho, njengoba sekuqhubeka izivivinyo, sekuvele eminye imibhalo mayelana ne ubukhulu bokukhohlisa kukaMonsanto kwenqubo yesayensi, izinhlaka zokulawula, nezimpikiswano zomphakathi. NgoMeyi 2019, izintatheli eFrance uthole imfihlo "Ifayela leMonsanto" eyenziwe yinkampani yezobudlelwano bomphakathi iFleishmanHillard ibala "inqwaba yolwazi" cishe izintatheli ezingama-200, osopolitiki, ososayensi nabanye ababonakala bengaba nomthelela empikiswaneni ye-glyphosate eFrance. Abashushisi eFrance bavule uphenyo lobugebengu futhi IBayer ithe iphenya inkampani yayo i-PR.

Le mpi yenkampani yesayensi inomthelela omkhulu kithi sonke, uma kubhekwa ukuthi uhhafu wabo bonke abesilisa e-US kanye nowesithathu kwabesifazane bazotholakala benomdlavuza esikhathini esithile sokuphila kwethu, ngokusho kwe I-National Cancer Institute.

Imibhalo imboni yokudla ayifuni ukuthi uyibone

Sekuyiminyaka, izimboni zokudla nezamakhemikhali zibheke ngqo kokuhlosiwe okukodwa emhlabeni wesayensi: i-International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), iqembu elizimele locwaningo elisebenze iminyaka engama-50 khomba izingozi zomdlavuza ukwazisa izinqubomgomo ezingavimbela umdlavuza.

“Kade ngilwa i-IARC unomphela !!! :) ”omunye usosayensi owayenguKraft Foods wabhalela owayengusosayensi waseSyngenta ku-imeyili itholwe ngesicelo samarekhodi esivulekile sombuso. “Ukudla ne-ag sekuvinjezelwe kusukela eGlyphosate ngoMashi 2015. Sonke kudingeka sihlangane ngandlela-thile siveze i-IARC, njengoba nina nenze ephepheni. Izinto eziza kuqala kakhulu yizo zonke izithako zokudla: i-aspartame, i-sucralose, i-iron yokudla, i-B-carotene, i-BPA, njll. I-IARC iyasibulala! ”

Isazi se-IARC isinqumo sephaneli ukuhlukanisa i-glyphosate ngokuthi “mhlawumbe ibanga umdlavuza kubantu” kudale indawo yokuhlangana yezitha zephaneli ukuqoqa amabutho. Umbhalo osemqoka weMonsanto okhishwe ngamacala wecala wembula uhlelo lokuhlaselwa: ihlazisa ososayensi abanomdlavuza ngosizo lwabalingani embonini yezokudla.

Uhlelo lukaMonsanto lokuxhumana nomphakathi unikeze abasebenzi abangu-20 bezinkampani ukulungiselela umbiko we-IARC we-carcinogenicity on glyphosate, ngezinhloso ezibandakanya "ukunciphisa umthelela," "ukubeka umbono womphakathi nge-IARC," "ukufinyelela komlawuli," "ukuqinisekisa i-MON POV" kanye "nokubandakanya izinhlangano zezimboni" "ekuthukutheleni. ”

Lo mbhalo ukhombe izigaba ezine "zabalingani bemboni" ukusiza ukuqhubekisela phambili izinhloso ezintathu ezishiwo ohlelweni lwe-PR: ukuvikela isithunzi se-Roundup, ukuvimbela izimangalo zomdlavuza "ezingenasisekelo" ekubeni umbono ovamile, kanye "nokuhlinzeka ngezembozo ezinhlanganweni ezilawulayo" ukuqhubeka nokuvumela ukusetshenziswa kwe-glyphosate.

Ukuthola inethiwekhi kaMonsanto "yabalingani bemboni"

The amaqembu abalingani bemboni uMonsanto uthephiwe ukwehlisa isithunzi ososayensi be-IARC babandakanya izinhlangano ezinkulu zokubulala izinambuzane kanye nezimboni zokudla; amaqembu e-spin axhaswa ngezimboni aziveza njengemithombo ezimele efana Izimpendulo ze-GMO futhi Umkhandlu Wemininingwane Yomhlaba Wokudla; futhi "isayensi-y" kuzwakala amaqembu angaphambili afana Umuzwa weSayensi, lo Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project futhi Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa - konke kusetshenziswa imilayezo efanayo futhi kuvame ukubhekiswa komunye nomunye njengemithombo.

Amadokhumenti atholiwe yi-US Right kuya Yazi uphenyo khanyisa ukuthi la maqembu abalingani asebenzisana kanjani ukukhuthaza i- "MON POV" mayelana nokuphepha kanye nesidingo semithi yokubulala izinambuzane kanye nama-GMO.

Iqoqo elilodwa lemibhalo lembula ukuthi izinkampani zikaMonsanto ze-PR zahlela kanjani “Ukubuyekezwa Kwezemfundo” njengenkundla ezwakala ingathathi hlangothi lapho ingaqala khona ukuhlaselwa uhlu lwezitha, kufaka phakathi iSierra Club, umbhali uMichael Pollan, i-movie ethi Food, Inc. kanye ne- imboni yemvelo.

Abakhi bokubukeza kwezifundo - ababambisene nabo UBruce Chassy futhi UDavid Tribe, Isikhulu seMonsanto u-Eric Sachs, owayengumqondisi wezokuxhumana eMonsanto uJay Byrne, Futhi owayeyi-VP weqembu lokuhweba lomkhakha we-biotech iVal Giddings - wakhuluma obala in ama-imeyili maqondana nokusungula ukubuyekeza kwe-Academics njengeqembu eliphambili lokukhuthaza izintshisekelo zemboni nokuheha imali yemboni, ngenkathi kugcinwa izigxivizo zeminwe zenkampani zifihliwe.

I-imeyili evela ku-Eric Sachs, iMonsanto'sScience, Technology & Outreach Lead, iya kuBruce Chassy

Ngisho namanje ngebhuku labo lokudlala lidaluliwe - kanye nelabo imali eyisisekelo ikhonjisiwe njengoba ivela eqenjini lezentengiselwano elixhaswe ngabakwaMonsanto, iBayer, iBASF, iSyngenta neDowDuPont - i-Academics Review isafuna lokho iwebhusayithi ukwamukela iminikelo evela “emithonjeni okungeyona eyezinkampani” Ukubuyekezwa kwe-Academics kubuye kuthiwe "Ukubuyekezwa komdlavuza we-IARC glyphosate kwehluleka ezingxenyeni eziningi," ku okuthunyelwe itholwe yiwebhusayithi ye-PR exhaswa yimboni Izimpendulo ze-GMO, iqembu eliphambili elixhaswe yimboni Umkhandlu waseMelika weSayensi nezeMpilo, kanye nendatshana yeForbes ngu Henry Miller lokho kwabhalwa isipoki nguMonsanto.

UMiller nabahleli be-Academics Review Chassy, ​​Tribe, Byrne, Sachs and Giddings are amalungu e-AgBioChatter, isithangami se-imeyili sangasese esivele ohlelweni lweMonsanto lwe-PR njengomlingani womkhakha wesi-2. Ama-imeyili avela kuhlu lwe-AgBioChatter ziphakamisa ukuthi yayisetshenziselwa ukuxhumanisa ababambisene nabo embonini emisebenzini yokunxenxa neyokuphromotha ukuvikela ama-GMO kanye nezibulala-zinambuzane. Amalungu afaka abasebenzi abaphezulu embonini yezolimo, abeluleki be-PR kanye nezifundiswa ezixhasa umkhakha, iningi labo elibhalela izinkundla zezindaba zomkhakha ezifana Izimpendulo ze-GMO futhi Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project, noma badlale izindima zobuholi kwamanye amaqembu abalingani beMonsanto.

I-Genetic Literacy Project, eholwa ngumkhakha osebenza isikhathi eside wamakhemikhali i-PR UJon Entine, futhi ibambisene ne-Academics Review ukwenza uchungechunge lwezingqungquthela ezixhaswe imboni yezolimo ukuqeqesha izintatheli nososayensi ukuthi ukukhuthaza kangcono ama-GMO kanye ne-pesticides baphikisane nokwehliswa kwabo emthethweni. Abahleli bebekhona abangathembeki ngemithombo yezimali zabo.

Lawa maqembu aziphonsa njengabaxazululi abathembekile besayensi njengoba besabalalisa imininingwane engamanga nezinga eliseduze nokuhlaselwa okushubile kwabososayensi abaphakamise ukukhathazeka ngengozi yomdlavuza ye-glyphosate.

Isibonelo esisemqoka singatholakala kuwebhusayithi ye-Genetic Literacy Project, ebibhalwe ukuthi “yi-tier 2 industry partner” ohlelweni lukaMonsanto lwe-PR lokuvikela i-Roundup ekulweni nokukhathazeka komdlavuza okuvezwe yi-International Agency for Research on Cancer. Ukuseshwa kwe- "IARC" kuwebhusayithi ye-Genetic Literacy Project kuveza izindatshana ezingaphezu kwama-200, eziningi zazo ezihlasela ososayensi abaphakamise ukukhathazeka ngomdlavuza ngokuthi "ama-anti-chemical enviros" "aqamba amanga" futhi "enza uzungu lokumelela kabi" izingozi zempilo glyphosate, futhi bephikisana nokuthi i-ejensi yomdlavuza yomhlaba wonke kufanele ibuyiselwe imali futhi iqedwe.

Izindatshana eziningi ezilwa ne-IARC ezifakwe ku-Genetic Literacy Project, noma eziqhutshwa abanye abasebenza embonini, ziyishaya indiva imibiko eminingi yezindaba ngokususelwa Amaphepha eMonsanto ukubhala ukungenelela kwezinkampani ocwaningweni lwesayensi, futhi esikhundleni salokho kuthuthukiswe izimangalo zezimboni zamakhemikhali ze-PR noma ze- izindaba ezingamanga a intatheli enobudlelwano obuhle noMonsanto. Impi yezepolitiki yokulwa ifinyelele yonke indlela eya eCapitol Hill, namaRiphabhulikhi e-DRM aholwa ngu Ummeli uLamar Smith efuna kuphenywe nokuzama uku ukugodla imali yase-US kusuka kunhlangano ehamba phambili yocwaningo lomdlavuza.

Ngubani ohlangothini lwesayensi?

Ukunxenxa nokuthumela imiyalezo kukaMonsanto ukudicilela phansi iphaneli yomdlavuza we-IARC kusekelwe empikiswaneni yokuthi ezinye izinhlaka ezisebenzisa ukuhlolwa okususelwa engcupheni zikhiphe i-glyphosate engcupheni yomdlavuza. Kepha njengoba imibiko yophenyo futhi iphephandaba izihloko ngokusekelwe ku Amaphepha eMonsanto bunemininingwane eminingi, ubufakazi bufaka ukuthi ukuhlolwa kokulawulwa kwezinhlekelele ku-glyphosate, okuthembele kakhulu ocwaningweni olunikezwa yimboni, kuyekethiswa ngokungadalulwanga ukungqubuzana kwezintshisekelo, ukuthembela kusayensi engabazisayo, izinto ezibhalwe ghost nezinye izindlela zokuqinisa izikhali ezinkampanini ezibeka impilo yomphakathi engcupheni, njengoProfesa waseTufts USheldon Krimsky wabhala.

“Ukuvikela ibhizinisi lesayensi, enye yezinsika zomphakathi wentando yeningi wanamuhla, ekulweni namandla angalenza isisebenzi sezimboni noma ezepolitiki, umphakathi wethu kumele usekele izikhubekiso phakathi kwesayensi yezemfundo kanye nemikhakha yezinkampani futhi ufundise ososayensi abasha futhi abahleli bephephabhuku ngemigomo yokuziphatha esezingeni lomsebenzi wabo, ”kubhala uKrimsky.

Abenzi benqubomgomo akumele bavumele isayensi ebumbene nenkampani ukuqondisa izinqumo mayelana nokuvinjelwa umdlavuza. Abezindaba kumele benze umbiko ongcono womsebenzi futhi babheke izingxabano zentshisekelo ngemuva kwesayensi yenkampani. Isikhathi sokuqeda impi yenkampani yesayensi yomdlavuza.

Izigxivizo zeminwe zeMonsanto Zithole Konke Ukuhlaselwa Kokudla Okuphilayo

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Le ndatshana ivele okokuqala ku- Huffington Post.

Lapho inhlangano engenzi nzuzo enedumela elihle ikhipha umbiko ohlasela imboni yokudla yemvelo ngo-Ephreli 2014, leli qembu lenza konke okusemandleni alo ukuzimela.

Ikhasi le-30 umbiko by Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa, echazwe “njengengenzi nzuzo eholwa ochwepheshe abazimele bezemfundo kwezolimo nakwezesayensi yokudla,” yathola ukuthi abathengi babekhohliswa ukuba basebenzise imali ethe xaxa yokudla okuphilayo ngenxa yemikhuba yokukhangisa ekhohlisayo eyenziwa imboni yezinto eziphilayo.

Izihloko ezisematheni ezentengiselwano zababaza: “Okungokwemvelo kuveziwe!” (Izindaba zeBrownfield) nokuthi “Imboni Engokwemvelo Iyakhula Ngabathengi Abakhohlisayo” (Izindaba Zokuphepha Kokudla), bethi okutholakele ngochwepheshe abazimele.

Lokhu okutholwe “kuvunyelwe yithimba lamazwe omhlaba lesayensi ezimele yezolimo, isayensi yokudla, ongoti bezomnotho nabezomthetho abavela ezikhungweni zomhlaba ezihlonishwayo,” ngokusho kweqembu isitatimende sephephandaba.

Uma ngabe iphuzu mayelana nenkululeko belingacacanga, ukukhishwa kwabezindaba kugcina ngalokhu: “Ukubuyekezwa kwezifundiswa akunakho ukungqubuzana kwezintshisekelo okuhlobene nalolu shicilelo, nazo zonke izindleko ezihambisanayo ezikhokhelwe ukusebenzisa izimali zethu jikelele ngaphandle kokucaciswa okuthile ithonya noma isiqondiso somnikeli. ”

Okungazange kushiwo embikweni, ukukhishwa kwezindaba noma kuwebhusayithi: Abaphathi beMonsanto Co, umkhokheli ohola phambili emhlabeni wezolimo kanye nembewu eyenziwe ngezakhi zofuzo, kanye nabalingani abakhulu beMonsanto, ababambe iqhaza ekuqoqeni isikhwama se-Academics Review, babambisana namasu waze waxoxa nangezinhlelo zokufihla uxhaso lwezimboni, ngokusho kwama-imeyili etholwe yi-US Right to Know ngezicelo zombuso ze-Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Izinhloso zikaMonsanto ekuhlaseleni imboni yezinto eziphilayo zisobala: Imbewu namakhemikhali kaMonsanto anqatshelwe ukusetshenziswa kwezolimo, futhi ingxenye enkulu yemiyalezo kaMonsanto ukuthi imikhiqizo yayo iphakeme kunokwemvelo njengamathuluzi okukhulisa ukukhiqizwa kokudla komhlaba wonke.

Izifundiswa Phatha Umyalezo kaMonsanto 

I-Academics Review yasungulwa ngokubambisana "ngoprofesa ababili abazimele… emaphethelweni ohlangothi lweplanethi," uBruce Chassy, ​​Ph.D., uprofesa osafufusa e-University of Illinois, noDavid Tribe, Ph.D., umfundisi omkhulu e-University of Melbourne . Bona Faka isicelo iqembu "lamukela kuphela iminikelo engavinjelwe emithonjeni engeyona eyezinkampani."

Kodwa-ke ukuhwebelana ngama-imeyili okubili ngo-2010 kuveza izinhlelo zokuthola uxhaso lwezinkampani lwe-Academics Review ngenkathi kugcinwa iminwe yenkampani ifihliwe.

Ngo-Mashi 11, 2010 ukushintshana nge-imeyili noChassy, ​​uJay Byrne, owayeyinhloko yezokuxhumana eMonsanto manje osephethe i- I-PR kanye nefemu yocwaningo lwemakethe, wanikela ngokusebenza "njengemoto yezentengiso" ukusiza ukuthola uxhaso lwezinkampani lwe-Academics Review.

UChassy uxoxe ngentshisekelo yakhe yokuhlasela imboni ephilayo kuma-imeyili. "Ngingathanda ukuba negama eliphakeme phakathi kwe-aura engokwemvelo lapho ngizokwethula khona imicibisholo ye-ballistic…" ubhale wathi, "Ngiqinisekile anginayo imali."

U-Byrne uphendule wathi,

“Yebo, ngiphakamisa ukuthi sisebenzele imali (yethu sonke) kuqala futhi ngokushesha! Ngiphakamise uVal [Giddings, owayeyisekela likamongameli we-BIO, inhlangano yokuhweba embonini ye-biotech] ukuthi mina naye sihlangane ngenkathi ngise-DC ngesonto elizayo ukuze sikwazi (hhayi nge-imeyili) ukuthola isithombe esicacile sezinketho ngokuyisa iphrojekthi ye-Academic Review namanye amathuba. "Isikhungo Sokukhululeka Kwabathengi" (ActivistCash.com) singene ngalokhu ngokweqile. "

ICentre for Consumer Freedom iqondiswa nguRick Berman, ilobbyist obizwe “UDkt Evil"Futhi"inkosi yamaqembu angaphambili ezinkampani kanye nenkulumo-ze“Ngomsebenzi wakhe wokuqhakambisa imboni kagwayi nezinye izinto ezibandakanyeka ezinkampanini ngaphansi kwamaqembu angachemile.

"Ngicabanga ukuthi sinomqondo ongcono kakhulu," kusho uByrne etshela uChassy.

U-Byrne wabelana ngohlu lwamathuba ahlosiwe ngabantu, amaqembu kanye nokuqukethwe okugxeka ama-GMO kanye neMonsanto: UVandana Shiva, Andrew Kimbrell, Ronnie Cummins, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, incwadi kaMichael Pollan ethi “In Defense of Ukudla, ”ama-movie athi“ Food, Inc ”ne-“ The World According to Monsanto, ”kanye“ nesihloko esinqamula kuzo zonke izindawo ezinobungozi ze-ag-biotech (ngaphandle kokuwela / ukungcola, izinyosi, izimvemvane, ukuphepha kwabantu, njll.) . ”

"Bonke laba bantu, izinhlangano, izinto zokuqukethwe nezindawo zezihloko zisho imali yezinkampani ezahlukahlukene ezithende kahle, uByrne wabhala, enezela:

Bonke laba bantu, izinhlangano, izinto zokuqukethwe nezindawo zezihloko zisho imali yezinhlangano zezinkampani ezithende kahle.

“Ngikholwa wukuthi mina noVal singakhomba futhi sisebenze njengezimoto ezifanele (ezingezona ezemfundo) esingaxhuma ngazo lezi zinhlaka nomsebenzi ngephrojekthi ngendlela esiza ukuqinisekisa ukuthembeka nokuzimela (futhi ngaleyo ndlela kube nenani) labanikeli abakhulu / abanikazi… Ngikholwa ukuthi ikhabethe lethu lekhishi lapha lingasebenza njengabagcini bamasango (kwezinye izimo abathathi ntela) ukuze kutholakale izimpendulo ezisebenzayo, ezithembekile, ukugoma kanye nokwenza imisebenzi ngokusebenzisa leplatifomu yephrojekthi… ”

"Kuzwakala kukuhle kimi," kuphendula uChassy. “Nginesiqiniseko sokuthi uzongitshela ukuthi nixoxa ngani.”

Ku-an ukushintshana nge-imeyili noChassy yangomhla kaNovemba 30, 2010, u-Eric Sachs, ophethe ezobudlelwano nomphakathi eMonsanto, waxoxa ngokuthola ukwesekwa kwebhizinisi kwe-Academics Review ngenkathi "egcina iMonsanto ingemuva."

USachs ubhalele uChassy:

"Mina nawe sidinga ukukhuluma kabanzi ngesayithi kanye nomqondo" wokubuyekezwa kwezifundiswa ". Ngikholwa wukuthi kunendlela eya enqubweni ebingaphendula kangcono ekukhathazekeni nasezinsolweni zesayensi. Ngihlanganyele noVal izolo. Ngokombono wami inkinga ingenye yokubandakanyeka kochwepheshe futhi engaxazululwa ngokukhokha ochwepheshe ukuze banikeze izimpendulo. Mina nawe sixoxe ngalokhu esikhathini esedlule. UVal uchaze ukuthi igxathu lokuqala lisungula isimo esingu-501 (c) sesi-3 sokungenzi nzuzo ukwenza lula ukuqoqwa kwemali. Lokho kunengqondo kepha kukhona okuningi. Ngixoxile noJerry Steiner namuhla (Ithimba Elilawulayo leMonsanto) futhi ngingasiza ukukhuthaza i-CLI / BIO / CBI nezinye izinhlangano ukuthi zisekele. Ukhiye kuzoba ukugcina iMonsanto ingemuva ukuze ingalimazi ukwethembeka kolwazi. ”

Ukhiye uzobe ugcina iMonsanto ngemuva ukuze ingalimazi ukwethembeka kolwazi.

I-CLI / BIO / CBI ibhekisa emaqenjini amathathu okuhweba embonini - iCrop Life International, iBiotechnology Innovation Organisation kanye noMkhandlu Wezokwazisa ngeBiotechnology Information - amele izinhlangano zezolimo.

UChassy uphendule uSachs, “Yebo kufanele sikhulume nge-Academics Review. Ngicabanga ukuthi sisesigabeni esisodwa. ”

Lapho ebuzwa ngqo ngezimali, uChassy uphendule nge-imeyili wathi: “Ukubuyekezwa kwezifundiswa akuceli noma kwamukele izimali kunoma yimuphi umthombo wocwaningo oluthile noma eminye imisebenzi ehambisana nanoma yimiphi imikhiqizo, izinsizakalo noma imboni. Ukubuyekezwa kwe-Academics kwamukela kuphela iminikelo engavinjelwe evela emithonjeni engekho yezinkampani ukusekela umsebenzi wethu. ”

Uthe ukubuyekeza kwe-Academics kwahlanganisa futhi kwabikwa ukuthi akukho mali engenayo ngo-2012 futhi wahlinzeka ngama-IRS form 990s for 2013 futhi 2014 (manje nayo ithunyelwe kuwebhusayithi). Leyo mibhalo ibika u- $ 419,830 kumali engenayo kepha ayifaki lwazi ngabanikeli. UChassy akazange aphendule ezicelweni zokunikeza lolo lwazi.

Cindezela Amakhava Ukuhlasela "Okuzimele" ku-Organic

I-Academics Review yakhipha ucwaningo lwayo lwezinto eziphilayo ngo-Ephreli 2014 kumjikelezo oqinile wokushicilelwa kwabezindaba ochaza okutholwe "ngabaphenyi abazimele":

“Imboni Yokudla Engokwemvelo Ike Yabandakanyeka Embikweni Wokufaka Izimangalo 'Wezinkulungwane Eziningi Zomphakathi Wokukhishwa Kolwazi' (I-Navigator Yokudla)

• “Umbiko: Imboni Engokwemvelo Ithole Iminyaka Engama-25 Yokukhula Ngokushesha Ngokusebenzisa Ukwesaba Nokukhohlisa”Izindaba Zokuphepha Kokudla)

• “Icala Elibi Lokumakethwa Kokudla Okuphilayo” (I-Dairyma kaHoardn)

• "Ukusebenzisa Ukwesaba Njengecebo Lokuthengisa" (Izindaba Zebhizinisi Lokudla)

In the New York Post, UNaomi Schaffer Riley wakha icala elibhekene "nobushiqela be-organic mommy mafia" abakhohliswa amaqhinga wokumaketha angenabungozi embonini yezinto eziphilayo. Imithombo yakhe ibandakanya umbiko we-Academics Review noJulie Gunlock, umbhali wencwadi ekhuluma “ngesiko lokwesaba.”

URiley akazange asho ukuthi uGunlock, kanye noRiley uqobo, bobabili abadala abafo e-Independent Women Forum, iqembu uxhaswa kakhulu yi-Donors Trust, enayo ukuhlaselwa kwezinkampani okubhange ezinyunyaneni, ezikoleni zomphakathi kanye nososayensi bezulu.

In the I-Register ye-Des Moines, UJohn R. Block, owayengunobhala wezoLimo e-US manje osebenzela inkampani yabameli enxenxa izintshisekelo zebhizinisi lezolimo, ubike “ngombiko we-blockbuster” we-Academics Review nemiphumela yayo yokuthi imfihlo yemboni yezimboni eyimpumelelo “ukumaketha kwabantu abamnyama. ”

The iqembu langaphambili lebhizinisi I-American Council on Science and Health, okuyi ithola uxhaso kusuka embonini yezolimo nalapho uChassy esebenza khona njengomeluleki wesayensi, ehlohla isihloko esithi "abamnyama abamaketha" kuma-athikili ngumongameli we-ACSH Hank campbell futhi UHenry I. Miller, MD, uzakwabo waseHoover Institute obesebenza njengesikhulumi ezikhangisweni ngomzamo wokubulala ilebula le-GMO eCalifornia, okwakunguMonsanto ohola imali.

Miller, onomlando omude wokwenza izimangalo zesayensi ezinganembile ukusekela izintshisekelo zebhizinisi, kusetshenziswe nombiko wokubuyekezwa kwezifundo njengomthombo wokuhlaselwa okungokwemvelo ku Newsweek futhi Buyekeza National, futhi wafuna ku Wall Street Journal ukuthi ukulima ngokwemvelo akusimeme.

Izindikimba ezifanayo zokulwa nemvelo zidlula kwezinye iziteshi ze-PR zezimboni zezolimo.

Izimpendulo ze-GMO, a iwebhusayithi yezokumaketha uxhaswe yizinkampani zeBig Six ze-agrichemical (futhi kuphi Chassy futhi Tribe zisebenza "njengochwepheshe abazimele"), zithuthukisa imibono yokuthi iyini imvelo akunampiloakukho okungcono ngemvelo futhi uhlelo lokumaketha nje - yize, ngokumangazayo, inkampani ye-PR eqhuba i-GMO Answers yethule iqembu elikhethekile eSan Francisco ukuzama imali emakethe yemvelo.

Ukuhamba Kwemali Kuya Esidlangalaleni; Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa Kuthula 

NgoMashi 2016, kubika uMonica Eng yeWBEZ kumadokhumende akhombisa ukuthi iMonsanto ikhokhele uSolwazi Bruce Chassy imali engaphezu kwama- $ 57,000 esikhathini esiyizinyanga ezingama-23 ukuhamba, ukubhala nokukhuluma ngamaGMO - imali engazange ivezelwe umphakathi.

Ngokophenyo luka-Eng, le mali ibiyingxenye okungenani yama- $ 5.1 million emalini engadalulwanga iMonsanto ethunyelwe nge-University of Illinois Foundation kubasebenzi baseyunivesithi nasezinhlelweni phakathi kuka-2005 no-2015.

"UChassy akazange adalule ubudlelwano bakhe bezezimali neMonsanto kumafomu wombuso noma eyunivesithi okuhloswe ngawo ukuthola ukungqubuzana kwezintshisekelo," kubika i-Eng.

“Imibhalo iqhubeka ikhombisa ukuthi uChassy kanye nenyuvesi bayalele iMonsanto ukuthi ifake leyo mali kwi-University of Illinois Foundation, okuwumgwamanda onamarekhodi avikelwe ekuhlolweni komphakathi. Isisekelo futhi sinamandla okuthatha imali yangasese bese siyikhiphela kumuntu 'njengeyunivesithi ekhokhelwayo' - engadalulwanga. ”

NgoJanuwari 2016, uCarey Gillam, umqondisi wezocwaningo wase-US Right to Know, kubikwe ngama-imeyili okukhombisa ukuthi amakhulu ezinkulungwane zamadola asegeleze esuka eMonsanto aya eNyuvesi yase-Illinois “njengoba uChassy ebambisene kumaphrojekthi amaningi neMonsanto ukulwisana nokukhathazeka komphakathi ngezitshalo ezishintshwe izakhi zofuzo (GMOs) - konke lokhu ngesikhathi ezimele njengesifundiswa esizimele sesikhungo somphakathi. ”

"Okutholayo lapho ufunda ngamaketanga e-imeyili amalungiselelo avumela abadlali bemboni ukuthi bahlanganise imiyalezo ye-pro-GMO ngaphakathi kweveli lobuchwepheshe obuzimele, futhi okuncane, uma kukhona, ukudalulwa esidlangalaleni kokuxhumana okwenzeka ngemuva," kubhala uGillam .

The okuthunyelwe kokugcina esizeni Sokubukeza Izifundo, sangomhla ka-Septhemba 2, 2015, yibhulogi kaChassy echaza ukuthi amanye ama-imeyili akhe azokwaziswa umphakathi ngenxa yezicelo ze-FOIA ze-US Right to Know, azibonakalisa njengokuhlaselwa eminyakeni engama-40 isayensi yomphakathi, ucwaningo nokufundisa.

Ukwesekwa kwezezimali okuvela emkhakheni ozimele ocwaningweni lomkhakha kahulumeni kanye nokufinyelela kubantu “kufanelekile, kuvamile futhi kuyadingeka ukufeza izidingo zomphakathi,” kubhala uChassy. "Ukwesekwa okunjalo kufanele, futhi kukho konke engikubonile, kube sobala futhi kwenziwe ngaphansi kweziqondiso zokuziphatha eziqinile zezikhungo zikahulumeni ezisizakala emikhakheni ezimele noma eminikelweni yomuntu ngamunye yezezimali."

Ezinsukwini ezintathu kamuva, amanye ama-imeyili kaChassy aqala ukwenziwa obala ekhasini lokuqala New York Times i-athikili yomlobi wezindaba ophumelele amahlandla amabili wePulitzer Prize u-Eric Lipton. ULipton ubike ukuthi uMonsanto wanikeza uChassy isibonelelo semali engadalulwanga ngo-2011 “yokwenza imisebenzi ye-biotechnology nemisebenzi yezemfundo.”

UChassy utshele uLipton ukuthi imali ayithola kuMonsanto "isize ekukhuphuleni izwi lakhe ngokuhamba, iwebhusayithi ayenzile nezinye izindlela."

Usathola I-Press njengoMthombo Ozimele 

Ngaphandle kokudalulwa kuma-imeyili nokudalulwa kwezibopho zezezimali zikaChassy eMonsanto, iwebhusayithi ye-Academics Review kanye nombiko wayo ohlasela imboni yezinto eziphilayo kusathunyelwe ku-inthanethi nazo zonke izincazelo ezithi zizimele.

Futhi uChassy usakujabulela ukusakazwa ngabezindaba njengochwepheshe "ozimele" kuma-GMO. NgoMeyi 2016, babili abahlukene Associated Press izindaba ucaphune uChassy ngaleso sihloko. Ayikho le ndaba eye yakhuluma ngokuxhumana kwezezimali kukaChassy nomphakathi manje neMonsanto.

Umbhali Wekholomu Wokudla waseWashington Post Uya eBat yeMonsanto 

NgoSepthemba 23, Washington Post umlobeli wezokudla UTamar Haspel wamukelwa ukuthi uthole "inala" yemali evela emithonjeni yezimboni ezixhasa ezolimo.

Ngemuva kokungeniswa kwakhe, ngicabange ukuthi kungaba wusizo ukubika ngezintatheli - kubandakanya uHaspel - okukhulunywe ngazo kumadokhumenti esiwatholile asuka kuzicelo zamarekhodi omphakathi.

I-US Right to Know iqhuba i- uphenyo lwezimboni zokudla nezolimo, amafemu abo e-PR namaqembu angaphambili, kanye nosolwazi ababakhulumelayo.

Kuze kube manje, izintatheli ezintathu ziza ngezindlela ezithokozisayo: U-Amy Harmon, uKeith Kloor noTamar Haspel. Lezi zintatheli zivela kumongo we UJon Entine, ngubani mhlawumbe oholayo Ukusebenza kwe-PR ukusebenzela ukuthuthukisa imibono yemboni yezolimo, nemithi yokubulala izinambuzane kanye nama-GMO.

U-Entine ungumsunguli futhi umphathi omkhulu we-Genetic Literacy Project, okuyi, kanye ne I-PR iqinile UKetchumka- Izimpendulo ze-GMO, amaqembu emboni yezolimo abonakala kakhulu ngaphambili. U-Entine futhi ungumsunguli nomongameli wenkampani ye-PR i-ESG MediaMetrics, okuyi- amaklayenti afake i-agronhemical giant Monsanto.

U-Amy Harmon

U-Amy Harmon yintatheli ye- New York Times. Wayeyingxenye ye- Times iqembu elanqoba umklomelo wePulitzer ngo-2001, kwathi ngo-2008 lawina Pulitzer ngokubika okuchazayo.

NgoSepthemba 23, 2013 ngo-7: 44 pm, UJon Entine uthumele i-imeyili uRenee Kester: “FYI, ngicabanga ukuthi ngikhulume no-Amy Harmon ukuthi enze indaba yaseHawaii eHawaii. . . futhi ngimnikeze imininingwane yakho ye-imeyili kanye neyakwaKirby, ngakho-ke angashayela ngesikhathi esithile uma ekulandela ngempela lokhu. ” UKirby Kester unjalo umongameli we-Hawaii Crop Improvement Association, iqembu eliphambili lezimboni zezolimo.

NgoJanuwari 4, 2014, the New York Times ushicilele udaba olusekuqaleni kwekhasi luka-Amy Harmon, olunesihloko esithi “Ukufuna amaLonely Amaqiniso Kuzilimo Eziguqulwe Ngokofuzo. ” Indaba isuselwe eKona, eHawaii.

Ngo-2014, uHarmon wawina indawo yesibili yeNhlangano Yezintatheli Zezemvelo “Umklomelo kaKevin Carmody Wokubika Okujulile Ovelele, Imakethe Enkulu”Kokuthi“Amaqiniso Ngama-GMO, ”Uchungechunge olwalunendatshana ethi“Ukufuna amaLonely Amaqiniso Kuzilimo Eziguqulwe Ngokofuzo. "

On September 30th, UHarmon uhlelelwe ukukhuluma kuya ICornell Alliance yeSayensi, a iqembu elixhaswe yiBill and Melinda Gates Foundation ukukhuthaza ama-GMO. Iqembu kufaka isikhalazo ngokumelene ne-US Right to Know's Umthetho Wenkululeko Yolwazi (FOIA) izicelo.

UKeith Kloor

UKeith Kloor yintatheli ezimele ebhalele yena Nature, Isayensi Insider, Discover, Slate nezinye izitolo. UKloor ubhale ama-athikili amaningi we-pro-GMO abelokhu ekhona evezwe yiJon Entine's Genetic Literacy Project.

UKloor kukhulunywa ngaye ezindaweni ezimbili emibhalweni ye-FOIA.

Ku-imeyili eyodwa, uJon Entine ubhekisa kuKeith Kloor njengo “umngani wami omuhle kakhulu".

Kwenye i-imeyili, ngo-Okthoba 18, 2014, uDkt. Channapatna Prakash, ummeli nomphathi weGMO eTuskegee University, Ama-imeyili U-Adrianne Massey we-Biotechnology Industry Organisation (BIO), kanye nabanye abaningana, ukudlulisa isexwayiso esivela ku- ULorraine Thelian, iphini likasihlalo wenkampani ye-PR iKetchum ukuthi "umphakathi we-hacker Anonymous uhlela uchungechunge lokuhlaselwa kuma-biotechnology kanye namawebhusayithi wemboni yokudla… Inhlangano yabasebenzi kanye namawebhusayithi ezinkampani e-CBI [Council for Biotechnology Information] amalungu abhekiswe kulokhu kuhlasela okuhleliwe." UDkt. Prakash uyabhala, "U-Adrianne ngikopishe uKevin Folta, uKarl von Mogel, uDavid Tribe noKeith Kloor nalapha. "

UDkt Prakash uthumele i-imeyili kuJay Byrne (owayengumqondisi wezokuxhumana kwezinkampani eMonsanto), UJon Entine, uBruce Chassy (imboni yezolimo khuthazaI-Val Giddings (i-VP yangaphambili ye-BIO), UHenry Miller (ummeli wemboni yezolimo), UDrew Kershen (ummeli wemboni yezolimo, UKlaus Ammann, UPiet van der Meer, UMartina Newell-McGloughlin (ummeli wemboni yezolimo), UKarl Haro von Mogel (ilungu lebhodi labaqondisi le- IBiology Iqinisiwe, iwebhusayithi ye-pro-GMO), uKevin Folta (kwezolimo ummeli wemboni), UKeith Kloor noDavid Tribe (ummeli wemboni yezolimo).

UKeith Kloor uyena kuphela intatheli owathola le imeyili.

I-imeyili isho ukuthi iKloor isebenza ngokubambisana nabameli abaziwayo bemboni yezolimo.

UKloor ubhale izindatshana ezintathu ebezigxeka izicelo zeFOIA zase-US Right to Know Isayensi Insider, Discover futhi Nature.

NgoMashi 23, 2015, UKloor wethule inkulumo yeCornell Alliance for Science, ephethe i- Isikhalazo ngokumelene ne-US Right to Know's FOIA.

UTamar Haspel

UTamar Haspel uyi umlobi wekholamu ku- Washington Post. Ubhale amakholomu amaningi we Thumela ukuvikela noma ukuncoma ama-GMO akade aba khona evezwe yiJon Entine's Genetic Literacy Project.

Ngo-2015, iHaspel uzuze umklomelo weJames Beard Foundation okwakhe Thumela amakholomu.

NgoJuni 2014, iHaspel Wakhuluma engqungqutheleni esekela umkhakha mayelana "Ososayensi bangayingenela kanjani kangcono impikiswano ye-GMO nomphakathi ongabazayo? ” Ingqungquthela ibihlelwe nguJon Entine noCami Ryan, okumanje usekhona isayensi yezenhlalo iholela iMonsanto. Ingqungquthela yayiholwa amaqembu amabili aphambili embonini yezolimo, i Iphrojekthi ye-genetic Literacy Project futhi Ukubuyekezwa Kwezifundiswa, kanye neYunivesithi yaseFlorida, ethola uxhaso olukhulu ezinkampanini zezolimo, njengoba kuphawulwe ngoSepthemba 6 esihlokweni ku New York Times.

IHaspel iphinde yamodela a iphaneli ihlelwe by Isikhungo saseNorth Carolina Biotechnology, "enikeza izinzuzo zesikhathi eside kwezomnotho nakwezenhlalo eNyakatho Carolina ngokusekela ucwaningo lwe-biotechnology, ibhizinisi, ezemfundo kanye nenqubomgomo yamasu ezweni lonke."

Engxoxweni kaSepthemba 23 ebanjwe yi- Washington Post, ephendula umbuzo wokuthi uyayithola yini imali emithonjeni yezimboni, uNkk Haspel ubhale ukuthi, “Ngikhuluma futhi ngilinganisa amaphaneli nezimpikiswano kaningi, futhi kungumsebenzi engikhokhelwa wona. ” Kamuva ngalolo suku, ngabuza uNkk. Haspel ku-Twitter ukuthi uthole malini embonini yezolimo nakumaqembu ayo angaphambili. Uphendule wathi, “Njengoba noma yiliphi iqembu elikholelwa ukuthi i-biotech linokuthile elikunikezayo 'yiqembu langaphambili,' inala!"

Ingabe kufanelekile kufayela le- Washington Post Umlobi wekholamu ukubhala amakholomu akhanyayo ngama-GMO ngenkathi evela ezingqungqutheleni ezifana nalezi zomkhakha? Ngabe kungukushayisana kwezintshisakalo kuHaspel ukwamukela imali ezithakazelweni zenkampani yezolimo ayihlanganisa njengengxenye yesigqi sakhe njenge Thumela umlobeli wezokudla? Uthole malini uHaspel kusuka kuzintshisekelo zomkhakha wezolimo?

Ezinye izintatheli zigxeke izintatheli “ngokwenza ibhakede” kumasekhethi ezikhulumi. Isibonelo, yangaphambili Washington Post Umhleli Ophethe Kusho uBen Bradlee, “Ngifisa sengathi kungaphela. Angiyithandi. Ngicabanga ukuthi kuyonakalisa. Uma i-Insurance Institute of America, uma kukhona into enjalo, ikukhokhela u- $ 10,000 ukwenza inkulumo, ungangitsheli ukuthi awonakaliswanga. Ungasho ukuthi awunayo futhi ungasho ukuthi uzohlasela nezinkinga zomshuwalense ngendlela efanayo, kodwa ngeke. Awukwazi. ”

UHaspel wabhala ku Washington Post ukuthi uzokhuluma kuphela emicimbini lapho “uma izinkampani ezenza inzuzo zibandakanyeka kulo mcimbi (okuyiyona ejwayelekile), azikwazi ukuba yizwi kuphela. Ngakho-ke, ngizokhuluma engqungqutheleni ebixhaswe yiMonsanto kanye ne-USDA ne-NC State University, kodwa hhayi umcimbi oxhaswe yiMonsanto kuphela. ” Kodwa-ke, engqungqutheleni kaJuni 2014, lapho uHaspel akhuluma khona, abekho abameli babathengi ababehlelelwe ukuthi bakhulume, kuphela abameli bezimboni.

On Ngo-Okthoba 16, uHaspel uhlelelwe ukukhuluma kuya ICornell Alliance yeSayensi, iqembu le-pro-GMO lelo ukusingatha isikhalazo ngokumelene ne-US Right to Know's FOIA.

UHaspel ubelokhu egxeka izicelo ze-US Right to Know FOIA. Ngo-Agasti 17, kuTwitter, wabhala: “Imali / isikhathi / amandla okuchithwa kumoshelwe ku-garyruskin's attack-spirited, and self-interested attack on @kevinfolta! Ngabe singadlulela kokunye okuwusizo?”Abanye abavumelananga nesinqumo sakhe sezindaba. NgoSepthemba 6th, u-Eric Lipton owaphumelela kabili umklomelo wePulitzer ubhale i-athikili ikakhulu esekwe kwizicelo zethu ze-FOIA - ikakhulukazi uProfesa Kevin Folta wase-University of Florida - obesekhasini lokuqala leSonto New York Times. Lo mbhalo uveze ukuthi uFolta, owenqabe kaningi ubudlelwane noMonsanto, empeleni wayethole isibonelelo esingadalulwanga esingu- $ 25,000, kanye nezabelo zokubhala ezivela enkampanini, futhi wasebenza eduze nayo kanye nenkampani yayo ye-PR uKetchum, eyayibhalela yena imibhalo futhi yahlela nabezindaba nokumnxenxela ukuba abe nemihlangano.

I-US Right to Know iyiqembu elimele abathengi. Sizama ukuveza lokho imboni yokudla engafuni sazi. Sikholelwa ukuthi kuwusizo emphakathini ukubona ukuthi izinkampani zokudla nezolimo zenza kanjani ubudlelwano bazo nomphakathi busebenza. Leyo ngenye indlela esingasiza ngayo abathengi ukuthi bahlole izimangalo nolwazi abalutholayo ezinkampanini ezibandakanyeka ekukhiqizweni kwethu kokudla, amafemu abo e-PR kanye nabasebenza nabo, kanye nezintatheli ezisebenza nabo.

Ubani Odala Ukuhlaselwa Kwase-US Ilungelo Lokwazi?

Phrinta imeyili Ungahlukıselana Ephathwayo

Kube nokuhlaselwa okumbalwa muva nje kwe-US Right to Know, ngakho-ke ngicabange ukuthi kungaba wusizo ukudweba ukuthi ngubani osemuva kwabo.

A Mashi 9 esihlokweni ku-Guardian wasigxeka ngokuthumela Izicelo ze-Freedom of Information Act ukuthola ukuxhumana phakathi kosolwazi abakhokhela intela kanye nomshini wePR womkhakha wezokudla. Bobathathu ababhali be-athikili bangabongameli bangaphambilini be-American Association for the Advancement of Science. Kepha lo mbhalo wehlulekile ukudalula izibopho zabo zezezimali.

Umbhali wokuqala, uNina Federoff ubizwa ngokuthi "ngu-Evan Pugh Professor ePenn State University" kodwa uyakushiya lokho isebenza e-OFW Law, okuyi-firmhouse yokudla kanye ne-agribusiness lobbying firm. Umthetho we-OFW ubhaliswe njengokunxenxa i- Umkhandlu Wezokwaziswa Kwe-Biotechnology futhi Syngenta.

Sacela izincwadi ezivela kubo bobabili iSyngenta ne-CBI - amalungu abo afaka phakathi “I-BASF, iBayer CropScience, iDow AgroSciences, iDuPont, Inkampani yeMonsanto neSyngenta”- ukuze siqonde ukuthi kungani uNks.

Umbhali wesibili, uPeter Raven, ukhonjwa njengoMqondisi Emeritus weMissouri Botanical Garden, ehlanganiswe kakhulu neMonsanto kangangokuthi ine Isikhungo saseMonsanto futhi IMonsanto Hall. Umtapo Wezincwadi kaPeter H. Raven esitezi sesine seMonsanto Center. A Ukukhishwa kwezindaba zika-2012 uthi, "Inkampani yeMonsanto neMonsanto Fund bebe phakathi kwabanikele kakhulu eMissouri Botanical Garden kule minyaka engama-40 edlule, banikela cishe ngamaRandi ayizigidi eziyishumi kumaphrojekthi amakhulu, isayensi nemfundo ngaleyo nkathi."

Umbhali wesithathu, uPhillip Sharp, usebenza eDavid H. Koch Institute eMIT - yebo, uDavid Koch ofanayo weKoch Brothers. Esihlokweni sabo, ababhali basifanisa nalabo abenqaba ukushintsha kwesimo sezulu. Okokuthi othile oxhunywe kwiKoch Institute ukuthi asixhumanise nabenqabayo ngokuguquguquka kwesimo sezulu akunakwenzeka. UDkt Sharp ubuye abe nobudlelwano obuseduze nemboni ye-biotech, njengomsunguli wenkampani iBiogen.

I-American Association for the Development of Science is esebenza njenge the Inhlangano yaseMelika Ekuthuthukisweni kweMonsanto. Lokho, ngokweqiniso, kuyilahleko yesayensi, nakithi sonke.

Futhi, iCornell Alliance for Science nayo besilokhu sihlasela i-US Right to Know futhi ukuhlela isikhalazo ngokumelene nezicelo zethu ze-FOIA mayelana nemboni yezolimo i-PR nemikhankaso yezepolitiki yokuvikela ama-GMO.

ICornell Alliance for Science yaqala ngonyaka owedlule nge “Isibonelelo sika- $ 5.6 million esivela kuBill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ”Isisekelo esikhulu kunazo zonke emhlabeni, okuyi- umgqugquzeli we futhi umtshali wezimali imboni yezolimo. Isikhulu esiphezulu seGates Foundation, uSue Desmond-Hellman, wasebenzela iminyaka eyishumi nane enkampanini ye-biotech iGenentech.

ICornell Alliance for Science ithi eyabo “Inhloso” ngukubukela phansi impikiswano ye-GMO, ”Kepha ukuhlasela iqembu lethu labathengi kuyindlela eyinqaba“ yokwehlisa isithunzi ”impikiswano ngemiphumela yezempilo nezemvelo yokudla nezitshalo ezakhiwe ngezakhi zofuzo.
