Este boletín es básico para quien tenga cualquier grado de conciencia sobre
el planeta y lo que está pasando con las destructoras de la ecología y
nuestra salud: trasnacionales y gobiernos en contubernios macabros.

Esta ONG a continuación trabaja mucho y bien, ha venido mucho a Chiapas a
ayudar a los campesinos...El elevado aumento de CANCER es una de las más
claras consecuencias de que las sustancias antibiológicas, artificiales  y
contaminantes son el boleto a la muerte de la vida en el planeta...aunadas a
la corrupción de los comerciantes y gobiernos que las permiten o las imponen
en el caso de las pruebas nucleares secretas y submarinas que llenan nuestra
atmósfera de radiación, entre mil más como los transgénicos alterados que la
compañía MONSANTO está introduciendo a nuestro consumo sin etiquetas que nos
permitan saber qué rayos estamos comiendo en supermercados mexicanos.

CALIFORNIA COUNTY SEEKS TO BAN FRANKENCROPS
In Mendocino County, California, organic consumers, companies, and
farmers have taken it upon themselves to gather enough signatures to
place an initiative on the coming March 2004 ballot to make GE crops
illegal within the county. Last Wednesday, the group turned in over
3,000 signatures, which should enable them to qualify for the ballot.
Although biotech companies are preparing to blitz the county with pro-GE
PR, Mendocino residents are vowing to keep GE contamination out of the
county's strong organic produce and beverage industry.

WHEN THEY SAY IT'S LOCALLY GROWN, THEY MEAN IT
Somerton Tanks Farm in Philadelphia is proving that organic farming can
be profitable in just about any setting --- even in an urban area.
Located on a small half acre, the inner city farm is selling its organic
produce and salad mixes to local restaurants. It looks like Sommerton
Tanks will be grossing around $25,000 in its first year, and doubling
that in its second year. "We wanted to prove that a city person who
didn't have a lot of resources could, in fact, practice urban
agriculture and be successful at it," said Roxanne Christensen, a
volunteer accountant for the operation.

TAKING OVER THE WORLD (KRAFT/PHILIP MORRIS)
The OCA, along with the GE Food Alert (GEFA) network is coordinating a
nationwide Week of Action to pressure Kraft foods, the world's largest
food distributor (and offshoot of the tobacco giant Phillip Morris),
into going GE-free. We've been watching Kraft closely for more than two
years, since we found illegal traces of Starlink corn in their Taco Bell
products (a genetically modified corn that the USDA has deemed unsafe
for human consumption), forcing them into a multimillion dollar recall
of their tainted products. Rallies and leafleting events will be held at
Kraft production facilities and grocery stores across the U.S. during
the week of October 25 through November 1. We've made it incredibly easy
for you to get involved locally. Take 30 seconds and sign up here:

Or contact the OCA office directly at 218-226-4164,
or email OCA's Kraft Campaign Coordinator Craig Minowa at

IF THEY DON'T WANT IT, WHY ARE WE GROWING IT?
In the UK, the most expansive public opinion survey on GE foods has
finally been completed. The survey conclusions result from more than 650
public meetings and 37,000 questionnaires. The survey summary is
rocking the UK government, which has recently begun discussing opening
the UK's borders to GE foods. Only 8% of the public said they felt
comfortable eating GE foods and a landslide 54% said the UK should never
permit the planting of GE crops.

--------------------

PESTICIDE POISONERS ABOVE THE LAW
The Bush Administration has initiated a new federal policy that
eliminates a farmer's right to sue a pesticide company if the chemical
doesn't do what it claims to do or destroys the farmer's crops. This is
a major setback for U.S. farmers and a massive victory for pesticide
companies who sell two billion gallons of chemicals to U.S. farmers
every year (a $33 billion global industry).

TAKING OVER THE WORLD (STARBUCKS)
Paris, France --- Starbucks is boldly preparing to open its first outlet
in the coffee connoisseur and café capital of the world. French
Starbucks subsidiary president Franck Esquerre says, "We are not trying
to compete with the traditional Parisian cafe. We bring a different
concept." His words have not soothed the nerves of coffee café owners in
Paris, given the fact that the gargantuan coffee-shop chain has
swallowed up "mom and pop" coffee shops all around the world, now
boasting more than 7,000 stores in 30 countries.

ANOTHER GOOD REASON TO GO TO COLLEGE
Organic hamburgers have now replaced conventional burgers in all
University of Wisconsin student cafeterias. Produced by local farmers
and distributed to the schools by Organic Valley, a nationwide farm
coop, the organic beef is only the first step towards meeting student
demands for more organic food in the cafeterias. "We're a land-grant
university that's supposed to be supporting local farmers and reducing
environmental impact," said John Hendrickson, senior outreach specialist
for the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems. Serving as another
shining example of the explosive growth in demand for organic foods, the
University Housing Food Service said it also plans to serve all-organic
salads, but cannot, as of yet, find enough local organic farmers to
supply their demand.

IS YOUR NEIGHBOR GROWING SCARY DRUGS?
On a secret farm in northeastern Colorado, an experimental genetically
engineered pharmaceutical corn is being grown that can never be eaten
and is so dangerous, no other crops can be grown within a mile radius.
The plant is still in its development phase, but has such a high risk of
reeking havoc on the environment, human health and the agricultural
economy, it is being grown in an undisclosed location more than 3,000
miles away from the company who "invented" it. According to toxicologist
Suzanne Wuerthele, "Producing pharmaceutical compounds in food crops is
a really, really bad idea. The chance of it contaminating the food
supply is great, and once that happens, it will destroy our export
markets." http://www.organicconsumers.org/ge/biopharm093003.cfm

TAKING OVER THE WORLD (MONSANTO)
Despite promises made during last year's presidential campaign,
President Lula da Silva has opened, at least temporarily, Brazil's
borders to Monsanto's GE soybeans. Brazil is the second largest soybean
producer in the world and is expected to take over the U.S. #1 position
by next year. Although Brazilian consumers and farmers are
overwhelmingly opposed to allowing GE soybeans to be legally grown in
the country, the producer of the GE seeds, Monsanto, stands to make
substantial profits on the deal and has been "pressuring" the Brazilian
President to ignore the demands of his constituency. The Brazilian
President was ultimately "convinced" by a triad of pressure groups: the
powerful soybean lobby in southern Brazil (many of whom have already
been growing GE soybean seeds smuggled into the country from Argentina),
the U.S. Embassy, and Monsanto (who have been threatening to sue Brazil
and its farmers) to permit the GE soybeans. Lula arranged for the
announcement to be made while he was out of the country-forcing his Vice
President Jose Alencar to make the controversial announcement. Alencar
at first resisted signing the decree, saying it violated Brazil's laws,
but President da Silva pressured him from New York, stating the Vice
President "knows what he has to do, and he will do it." Grudgingly,
Brazil's VP signed the decree papers, saying, "The next time, I'm going
to be the one who travels." In the short time since the decree has been
signed, its legality has been challenged on several fronts, including
Brazil's Attorney General Claudio Fontelles, arguing that the Executive
Order to allow GE soybeans is unconstitutional.
