Five countries have banned glyphosate in the wake of recent lawsuits

Note glyphosate’s in more than just Roundup, NZ’s favourite spray for just about everything, edges, roadsides, footpaths, schools, even their veggie gardens before replant! Nary a thought to WHO’s decision it’s ‘probably carcinogenic’. Check the fine print at your garden store and preferably don’t use it. See our Glyphosate pages at the main menu.

(Natural News) The Flemish government has joined the number of countries banning glyphosate, as reported by the Baum Hedlund. The prohibition on the use of glyphosate is not new in the country as the Belgian cities of Brussels and Wallonia have already issued their own laws regarding the individual use of the chemical. In addition to Belgium, four more countries have banned glyphosate for this year. These are:

  1. Malta – The country was the first European country to ban the use of this controversial weedkiller.
  2. Sri Lanka – The President of Sri Lanka also banned the use of glyphosate nationwide to protect the health of the its citizens. The herbicide has been linked to a quintuple increase in the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the nation and resulted in about 20,000 deaths in northern Sri Lanka.
  3. The Netherlands – The Netherlands likewise prohibited the herbicide after hearing the arguments of Party for Animals, an organization that focuses on animal rights issues.
  4. Argentina – Meanwhile in Argentina, about 30,000 doctors demanded the prohibition of glyphosate in their country since the chemical is associated with cancer, spontaneous abortions, birth defects, skin diseases, respiratory illness, and neurological disease.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) identified glyphosate as a potential carcinogen to humans. They found a strong association between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a type of blood cancer that affects the white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lawsuits against Roundup — Monsanto’s flagship product — began piling in after the IARC report. Over 1,100 people all over the U.S.have filed lawsuits against Monsanto. Allegedly, exposure to Roundup caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. There are more than 50 lawsuits against Monsanto that continue to pile up in the U.S. District Court in San, Francisco.

Moreover, the glyphosate manufacturer is also facing a class action lawsuit in Wisconsin after six consumers claimed that Roundup was falsely promoted as safe when it actually caused adverse impacts on human gut bacteria.

Earlier this year, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment confirmed that glyphosate would be added to California’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer.

Aussie land grab by Rabobank – this is Agenda 21/30 aka ‘Sustainable Development’ in full flight – learn about this UN plan to inventory & control literally everything – be warned

“…Agenda 21 is a UN  action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world”  Rosa Koire

Here is an example of UN Agenda 21 and ‘sustainable development’ in action (now known as Agenda 2030 as time moves on). On the surface it looks legitimate … however as Rosa Koire points out (see her video, link further down) it is a covert plan to inventory and control everything you hold dear including yourself & your freedoms. Before you conveniently write this off as ‘conspiracy’, research it for yourself.

As this plan works out in this example (and there are many others like them) the cabal with their banking cohorts engage people with unrepayable predatory loans engineered with a mix of raised interest rates & other manipulative tactics until deep in debt they are driven off their land. While all due respect & sympathy goes out to these unsuspecting farmers (because they didn’t fully realize who and what they were up against with the banking system and their predatory loans) this is the treatment indigenous people, and particularly Australian indigenous, have endured for centuries. Content to live on the land, not rape and pillage it as do the corporations, and with great respect take from it only what they needed, they were trammeled underfoot in the name of ‘progress’ (aka greed of the few). The point is, the same greed for land by those who sought it in colonial days, goes on today & here it is in full flight (and I’m not referring to the average colonial folk back then who simply wanted to survive, oft times driven from their own lands by the same greed witness Scotland and Ireland). Read Who Owns the World? by Kevin Cahill (his lectures are also on Youtube) for an exposé on the deception we’ve been fed about that.

Our respective countries’ governments are corporations (NZ), our local governments are corporations/companies also and democracy is rapidly becoming an illusion witness the battles folk are having with their District Councils and rates wars. (See all our Local Govt Watch pages at the main menu). Companies exist for profits not people and are fast becoming the means of the new world order (talked about frequently now) to acquire ownership of the entire planet … ownership and control is the real agenda. Check out our Agenda 21 pages for more information on that and hear from others who have endured the same as these people here … from those who have seen this outworking in the paperwork of their respective businesses and professions like a US woman Rosa Koire did. See also our Banking pages. There’s an agenda going down that is covert but becoming more overt by the day. These bully boys have always employed the military & the long arm of the law to achieve what they could not by ‘friendliness’ and deception (see Dr Hirini Moko Mead on the *three phases of colonization). Witness the various land wars in the colonized countries, in our own (NZ), a means of acquiring land from non-sellers. Government legislated War &/or confiscation was the modus operandi. People need to wake up what is going down right under their noses. There is a new wave of land grabbing in progress right now.
For further information on this issue in Australia see this Youtube channel. And to read about the NZ man from whose bank account the ANZ took $5400 to pay his rates go here. (He withheld payment for good reason, read the full story here). See also our Corporations pages.

*Landmarks, Visions and Bridges by Dr Hirini Moko Mead

Netherlands-based bank Rabobank with the aid of an armada of government-paid enforcers arriving in government vehicles along with grubby receivers Ferrier Hodgson heavied Noeline Bradshaw and her son Neil to get off their cattle property, Ballabay north of Pentland. Noelene and Neil were arrested by several violent officers and marched off to the paddy wagon. Although the receivers and Rabobank representatives indicated they would go to the negotiating table after a court appearance on Thursday, in order to avoid a welcoming party at the property they did not arrive on Monday February 20 as they had indicated. Instead they arrived in military style on Wednesday, with enforcers blocking the entry road and threatening any media or supporters with arrest if they tried to enter. Ferrier Hodgson were supposed to remove the family on “voluntary terms” as they had suggested. It appears they did not wish to have any other parties present when removing the entire family. Neil Bradshaw owns cattle on the property that are not mortgaged to Rabobank. He previously circulated descriptions and brands of his cattle to all livestock agents and meatworks warning them not to deal with the cattle.
This sorry saga of a foreign bank dispossessing honest, hard-working Australians from their properties is completely sanctioned by the LNP and Labor Party. Bank industry sources believe Rabobank is acting in league with coal and gas companies to remove land holders in order to easily access known coal and gas reserves in the Pentland district.

“Rabobank will have token buyers lined up ready to buy the properties at discounted prices, leaving the Bradshaws holding the bag with a $1 million or more deficit, which without any means of income they will never be able to pay off,” the source said.

Yesterday Member for Kennedy Bob Katter weighed into this disgraceful episode, contacting the Labor Polce Minister(whose husband is a police inspector) then arriving at the Charters Towers police station to get the Bradshaws out of the watch house.
He was told the Bradshaws had been released just before he arrived. The clearly upset Bob Katter told Cairns News that the lending practices of the banks are designed to allow foreclosures.
“In this case the bank loaned the family too much money because of droughts and poor cattle prices then the government-instigated live cattle export ban which placed them in an unviable position,” he said. “The banks are a law unto themselves and there is no power on earth to control them. “I have got hundreds of similar cases on file where farmers have not been able to get any relief from any of the so-called government watchdogs like ACCC, courts, the Reserve Bank ASIC and others that are supposed to offer financially stressed businesses relief. “Banks like Rabobank continue to flagrantly break the law. “The Bradshaws are devastated after a lifetime’s work to lose their possessions to a foreign bank or any bank. “The bank will make a profit of half a million or more from these seizures and the Bradshaws will have to carry a $1 million or more debt for the rest of their lives. “This assault on an Australian farming family clearly demonstrates the urgent need for a Royal Commission into banking practices.”

More news on Glyphosate … including the Netherlands, Colombia and a Jeffrey Smith Interview

The news on Glyphosate is coming regularly since WHO classified it as a Class 2A carcinogen (it probably causes cancer). There was already enough evidence, in my opinion, to ban it anyway, however with the added weight of WHO’s conclusions (based on the previous research) surely it is only a matter of time before Glyphosate goes the same was as DDT and Agent Orange. You may not be aware but the same company responsible for the creation of Glyphosate is also responsible for the creation of those two  products and Aspartame as well. Agent Orange was responsible for horrific birth defects still seen today in the Vietnamese population,  a result of the US cleansing Vietnam of its defoliation during the Vietnam war. It was also responsible for a raft of health problems and birth defects experienced by our own Kiwi vets, a fact only recently acknowledged by our NZ government, to their shame I might add, given the war ended decades ago.

We in the Rangitikei are urging our council to desist from the use of Glyphosate in the public spaces of our towns. This at least will protect the public, especially our children, from unwitting exposure. These companies spray with no warning, and no signs out to say they are spraying. This is simply because Glyphosate has enjoyed a ‘harmless’ status for decades. The product data sheets however advise no contact with the sprayed foliage until dry, yet there is no way for us to know where they have sprayed. They also indicate the use of gloves and a mask (which nobody wears I note) and yet they don’t see fit to warn our children they are spraying.
