En Ariège, des bergers déplacent des montagnes.

À l’estive de chèvres laitières de Luzurs, des bergers passionnés construisent à la main (et à dos d’âne) une fromagerie d’altitude avec des matériaux de la montagne.
Superbe vidéo !... <3

Alsace. Thannenkirch cherche un éleveur (chèvres, moutons...) pour défricher les terres.

  • Un collectif de citoyens de Thannenkirch, en Alsace, cherche à attirer un éleveur pour s’occuper de 27 hectares de terres en friches sur le ban communal.
  • Cette installation passera par la mise en place d’une association foncière pastorale (AFP), qui permet de groupes des parcelles de différents propriétaires.
  • Les personnes intéressées ont jusqu’au 31 octobre pour se faire connaître. Mais la mise en place de l'AFP va prendre un peu de temps, avant qu'il soit possible de s'installer. Trois formulaires de manifestation d’intérêt ont cependant déjà été reçus.

The Patent That Could Destroy Monsanto And Change The World | Eco Snippets

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents “the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed.” And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.

What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.

Imperial Intent: Destroying India’s Farm Sector

by Colin Todhunter / December 22nd, 2020


Source: https://dissidentvoice.org/2020/12/imperial-intent-destroying-indias-farm-sector/
Agriculture in India is at a crossroads. Indeed, given that over 60 per cent of the country’s 1.3-billion-plus population still make a living from agriculture (directly or indirectly), what is at stake is the future of India. Unscrupulous interests are intent on destroying India’s indigenous agri-food sector and recasting it in their own image. Farmers are rising up in protest.

The deregulation of international capital flows has turned the planet into a free-for-all bonanza for the world’s richest capitalists.

... the deregulation of global capital movement has increased levels of dependency of nation states on capital markets and the elite interests who control them.

The dominant narrative calls this ‘globalisation’, a euphemism for a predatory neoliberal capitalism based on endless profit growth, crises of overproduction, overaccumulation and market saturation and a need to constantly seek out and exploit new, untapped (foreign) markets to maintain profitability.

Back in the 1990s, the #World #Bank directed India to implement market reforms that would result in the displacement of 400 million people from the countryside.

The aim is to let powerful corporations take control under the guise of ‘market reforms’.

The fact that US agriculture now employs a tiny fraction of the population serves as a stark reminder for what is in store for Indian farmers. Agribusiness companies’ taxpayer-subsidised business models are based on #overproduction and dumping on the world market to depress prices and rob farmers elsewhere of the ability to cover the costs of production. The result is huge returns and depressed farmer incomes.

India’s agrarian base is being uprooted, the very foundation of the country, its (food and non-food) cultural traditions, communities and rural #economy. When agri-food corporations like #Bayer (and previously #Monsanto) or Reliance say they need to expand the use of GMOs under the guise of feeding a burgeoning population or to ‘modernise’ the sector, they are trying to justify their real objective: displacing independent cultivators, food processors and ‘mom and pop’ retailers and capturing the entire sector to boost their bottom line.

The intention is for India’s displaced cultivators to be retrained to work as cheap labour in the West’s offshored plants, even though nowhere near the numbers of jobs necessary are being created and that under the World Economic Forum’s ‘great reset’ human labour is to be largely replaced by artificial intelligence-driven technology under the guise of a ‘4th Industrial Revolution’.

It could mean hundreds of millions of former rural dwellers without any work. And given the trajectory the country seems to be on, it does not take much to imagine a countryside with vast swathes of chemically-drenched monocrop fields containing genetically modified plants and soils rapidly degrading to become a mere repository for a chemical cocktail of proprietary biocides.

Transnational corporate-backed front groups are also hard at work behind the scenes. According to a September 2019 report in the New York Times, ‘A Shadowy Industry Group Shapes Food Policy Around the World’, the International Life Sciences Institute ( #ILSI ) has been quietly infiltrating government health and nutrition bodies. The article lays bare ILSI’s influence on the shaping of high-level food policy globally, not least in India

Accused of being little more than a front group for its 400 corporate members that provide its $17 million budget, ILSI’s members include Coca-Cola, DuPont, PepsiCo, General Mills and Danone. The report says ILSI has received more than $2 million from chemical companies, among them Monsanto.

Whether through IMF-World Bank structural adjustment programmes, as occurred in Africa, trade agreements like #NAFTA and its impact on Mexico, the co-option of policy bodies at national and international levels or deregulated global trade rules, the outcome has been similar across the world: poor and less diverse diets and illnesses, resulting from the displacement of traditional, #indigenous
#agriculture by a corporatised model centred on unregulated global markets and transnational monopolies.

This #financialisation of agriculture perpetuates a model of commercialised, globalised farming that serves the interests of the agrochemical and seed giants, including one of the world’s biggest companies, #Cargill, which is involved in almost every aspect of global agribusiness.

And if the coronavirus-related #lockdown has indicated anything, it is that many of these ‘migrant workers’ have failed to gain a secure foothold and were compelled to return ‘home’ to their villages. Their lives are defined by low pay and insecurity after 30 years of neoliberal ‘reforms’.

The displacement of these farmers and the subsequent destruction of rural communities and their cultures was something the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation once called for and cynically termed “land mobility”.

> The various lockdowns around the globe have already exposed the fragility of the global food system, dominated by long-line supply chains and global conglomerates. What we have seen underscores the need for a radical transformation of the prevailing globalised food regime which must be founded on localisation and food sovereignty and challenges dependency on global conglomerates and distant volatile commodity markets.
