Bono Fights for U.S. Plan to Steal Farms From Africa

At the recent G8 Summit, held at Camp David in Maryland, the Obama Administration met with private industry leaders to discuss the launch of the “New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition”.

Don’t be fooled by the catchy name. This plan would uproot autonomous family farming systems in Africa and replace them with toxic monoculture systems controlled by multinational corporations.

 Africa has long been a target of perverse American exploitation, with its rich diversity of minerals, gems and precious metals, a.k.a. lots of dollar signs for greedy mega-corporations. It is only natural, then, that this insatiable lust for filthy lucre extend to food and agriculture as well, much like it already has in the U.S. where GMOs and corporate monoculture rule the day.

Never mind that the African people are vehemently opposed to having their agricultural heritage stolen from them by U.S. interests. The African Civil Society Organizations recently had this to say about the so-called “public private partnerships” being established to eliminate African sovereignty over its own food supply:

“We request that: — governments, FAO, the G8, the World Bank and the GAFSP reconsider their promotion of Public/Private Partnerships which, as they are now conceived, are not suitable instruments to support the family farms which are the very basis of African food security and sovereignty.”

Like most of the other “humanitarian” missions started by the Obama Administration, this one serves no other purpose except to make money. Africa has spoken. They don’t want anything to do with American interests, even if they’re supported by failing rockstar Bono.


Of course, it’s all done in the name of ‘feeding the poor’, when it’s actually ‘feeding the rich’.

When land is placed on the Monsanto treadmill, it’s very hard to get off it – making land corporate dependent like countries want people to be govt dependent.
