AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP THE STREET CHILDREN OF BANARAS

Posted September 9, 2000






Following are various thoughts and brief essays about Social Justice. If you agree with them, you are welcome to borrow them and reprint them. If you know more about the subject than I do, you are welcome to borrow what I have written and add to it. My e-mail address is jhaag@u.washington.edu or jhaag@janhaag.com. Let me hear from you.






Merging of the Multinationals, banks, oil companies, hi-tech companies, etc.


Soon there will be just 100 of the world's riches people owning 95% of the world's wealth instead of 200.




Patenting Human Genes


Most of the world does not have genetic diseases! To allow the medical and pharmacutical establishment to patent our genes for "good purposes" and then charge exhorbitant prices for their services and drugs -- and consequently own the rights to our bodies, our genes, our chromosomes, our micro-organisisms, our plants, our animals so they can sell the world's "common wealth" that has been freely given, exchanged, researched since the human species began!!!! -- is NOT ACCEPTABLE! Help to repeal the NEW patent laws that allow for the patenting of human genes, et al.




Genetically Modified Food


Most of the world does not want to eat genetically modified food. The Montsano's of this world do not want to hear this. They are trying to prevent us even knowing whether or not we are eating altered substances. Lobby for labeling of genetically modified food, and BOYCOTT ALL tampered-with food substances. Eat Organic Only! if you possibly can.

Montsano's motive in meddling with agriculture is not to "feed the world" -- the world is perfectly capable of feeding itself, if left to grow organic food under a system of sustainable argriculture -- but to buy up, own, and control the food supply of all human beings!!!




BOYCOTT


Below are two of our most common genetically modified foods. DON'T EAT THEM:

CORN, corn syrup, corn-meal, all those deliciouis Mexican chips and tortillas, if made in America -- unless specifically label organic or non-genetically modified -- are likely to be tainted.

SOY BEANS, all soy products, soy milk, soy oil, etc. Indeed this one is ironic, since so many health foods have, since the beginning of the health food movement, been made of soy. But now! DON'T EAT ANY OF THEM! unless they are labeled organic or non-genetically modified.
