Three Massive Mergers - Millions for One Bank and a Disaster for Food, Water, and Climate

By Wenonah Hauter / yesmagazine.org You probably learned in high school that monopolies are bad for consumers; they eliminate the field of competition in the marketplace, leaving people with fewer options and higher prices. Mega-mergers in the food and energy markets are allowing a handful of corporations to dominate market sectors. Their market dominance means that when it comes to influencing public policy, politically powerful companies call the shots. Beyond the corporate quest for market dominance, there is another reason these mergers keep coming at everyone else’s expense: the deals make big money for the powerful banks that wield enormous power over our democracy.

Whiteflies are often kept in check by spiders, but infestations can happen when predators are nowhere to be found due to chemical-intensive farming.

The Monsanto Company has long denied its GMO crops and chemicals have had much of an effect on the Indian farmer suicide epidemic, but a new development is once again casting doubt on their assertion. While some claim that Indian suicides have been caused by an economic crunch in general, others point the finger squarely in Monsanto’s direction. In fact, recent rates have climbed as high as “one suicide every 30 minutes.”

According to the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, in 2009 alone 17,638 farmers committed suicide in India, amounting to one suicide every 30 minutes. In total, 290,000 suicides by farmers over the last 20 years have occurred according to the national crime records bureau of India.

Ecuador indigenous leader found dead days before planned Lima protest. The body of an indigenous leader who was opposed to a major mining project in Ecuador has been found bound and buried, days before he planned to take his campaign to climate talks in Lima.
