Quality Seed = Better Yield-Watch how ethopian farmers increased their yield


Seed for Business (short version) – Ethiopian farmers as entrepreneurs

Posted by ISSD Ethiopia on YOUTUBE

Quality seed is vital for increasing agricultural production and productivity. The transformation of farmers into entrepreneurs, as facilitated by their organization into seed cooperatives, contributes to seed security and local economic development.

Comments : This video shows that in order to protect the seeds quality we need to educate the farmers make them entrepreneurs this will help in increasing the yield .

Monsanto , Bayer or Syngenta the chemical giants are not required to increase the yield but quality seed = better yield. These chemical companies are not a solution for helping us increase in production.  Stop poisoning food in the name of increasing yield. Encourage farming in traditional methods .

Human TrafficKing – 15 Dollars Per Baby…Every Minute Of The Day A Child Or Woman Is SOLD


Human TrafficKing – 15 Dollars Per Baby

by Richard Wilson

SOURCE : NEWSWIRE.NET

Every Minute of the day a woman or a child is SOLD, a local slave lord “Pimp”returned a baby who was sold for 15 dollars by its parents, the baby is ransomed, and the entire story is documented by Dustan and Darlene, host of The Revolutionary Life.

In Malaysia Every minute of the day a woman or a child is SOLD. Thousands of babies are being sold every day, but today Heaven shined on this baby’s life. These Revolutionaries somehow managed to successfully ransom this small child, and gain the slave lord’s change of heart to return the baby. The parents sold the baby for 15 dollars, barley enough money to live on and as a way to survive in a poor country.

These two Revolutionaries are shinning a light into the dark world of the unspoken  and unheard  babies of Human Trafficking.

Travelling 1,000’s of miles across the continent, driving endless miles thru muddy trails and dirt roads, crossing rivers, going up river in a boat and hiking thru jungles with a backpack, map and flashlight is a daily Revolutionary Life.

700,000  to 4 million persons worldwide are trafficked across or within national borders every year.

Dustan and Darlene have been the tour de force, exposing the Human Trafficking World in places in Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Africa.

Human Trafficking  generates roughly 7 to 10 billion dollars annually; is a form of modern-day slavery; and is the fastest-growing, global criminal industry, with high profits, low risks, minimal capital investment, and a “commodity” that can be used over and over again.

Women, men, and children fall prey to human trafficking on a global scale The country is poor with little to no resources available to the public and are exploited by misfortune, ignorance and desperation.  Either lured by promises of employment and a better life.

The Revolutionary Life is a dedicated commitment to helping and rescuing   Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims from Indonesia to West Africa.

Throughout their entire trip and wanting to show the rest of the world they filmed the entire trip and now can be seen on a TV series called: THE REVOLUTIONARY LIFE.

‘New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition’-Partnering to fuel poverty in Africa??


HUNGER SUMMIT

David Cameron is hosting a hunger summit in London today. This summit is a meeting where some of the biggest corporations (including Monsanto, Cargill, Vodafone, and Unilever) in the world are going to pledge millions to “stop” world hunger. This is part of what is called the New Alliance on Food Security and Nutrition (called at the G8 last year). In actual fact, this New Alliance is going to be the vehicle to spread land grabbing and genetically modified crops across the African agricultural economy.

This report reveals how DFID has been using hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money with the express purpose of extending the power of agribusiness over the production of food, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. While this will increase the profits of corporate giants such as Monsanto, Unilever and Syngenta, it threatens to disempower small farmers and rural communities and condemn them to long-term poverty.

The report also lifts the lid on DFID’s support for a complex network of companies and investment funds registered in one of Africa’s foremost tax havens: Mauritius. This means that much UK aid is being routed through a known ‘conduit haven’, allowing companies to avoid paying taxes that could be used by national governments to support small farmers and genuine agricultural development.

To Conclude : The real winners from today’s hunger summit is not the African People it’s the Corporations !!!
