Terminator Seeds Just Keep Coming: Sign the Petition to Keep Brazil’s ban in Place!

terminator seeds

“Terminator” seeds, crops whose seeds have been genetically engineered to die at harvest instead of being replantable, have long been a source of controversy and have been banned in Brazil. Since time immemorial, farmers have saved seeds to reuse during the next planting season, but biotech companies created this unholy atrocity in order to force farmers to continuously buy their product with threats of bankruptcy and starvation.

In 2007, a bill, PL 268/2007, was introduced in the Brazilian congress to do away with the country’s ban on Terminator seeds. Global protests and a petition boasting nearly 20,000 signatures temporarily halted that bill in October 2013. The bill began to move again just before Christmas now, but was stopped when more “than 30,000 people and organizations around the world signed a protest letter calling on the Brazilian government to uphold the UN moratorium on the commercialization of Terminator,” the ETC Group wrote.

Brazil Receives First Samples of ‘amateur’ Implantable Biochip – Sales Begin in 2014

Several studies have linked the implantable chips with the appearance of tumors in animals. Even so, FDA approved the use of microchips in humans in 2004. Some years later, the VeriChip, emerging on market, has discontinued the development of this type of chip, which has not stopped some amateur “enthusiasts” go on with their deployment testing of microchips in humans.

On countries like USA, Canada and some on EU, the testing of biochips is relatively a old news. About 3,000 people worldwide already have some sort of chip implanted. And now arrived in Brazil. The numbers just tend to grow up!

Who is Shaking Up Brazil and Why

The mass street protests in Brazil continue. Most of the protesters do not belong to any party and have no leaders with whom the authorities could negotiate about the demands being made. It all began with a flare-up of discontent among Brazilians from the middle class and residents of poor neighborhoods with a hike in public transportation fares. Fares were high to begin with, and the most recent fare hike was met with indignation from city dwellers who do not have their own cars.

Transportation problems are a constant topic of critical speeches in the country. Many Brazilians often have to spend a total of 5-6 hours to get to work and then return home. The people’s discontent was further roused by the appearance in social networks, as if on command, of materials about «multibillion expenditures from the state coffers» on the construction of sport venues for the World Football Championship in 2014 and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Handwritten signs in the demonstrators’ hands show that not all Brazilians live for football battles and sports records: «We need modern public transportation, quality education, medical services and guaranteed work». Calls to fight corruption are also heard. The «sports boom» is more and more often associated in public opinion with corruption in the government and the «mutually profitable connections» of some of its members with construction companies and financial and entrepreneurial circles. According to various estimates, between 300 and 500 people turned out for the demonstrations. The protests have not yet subsided. Organization of the protesters is conducted mainly through the «Forum for Fighting Ticket Price Hikes». Read the rest of this entry »

Brazil Will Require all Cars to Have RFID Chips by 2014 – Deployment Starts June/2012

I have posted more than a year back about the plans of the brazilian government to use RFID chips in all brazilian cars. Now it is official, it will happen, and will start end of this month (june/2012) and will became a requirement to drive in Brazilian in june 2014. I translated a very much apologetic report from the brazilian media below, where it tries to justify the injustifiable. Interesting is how it highlights how this full monitoring of Brazilians is an innovation internationally. I wonder why this is so. Not for the lack of thirst for power of governants and the Elite to control the population, but because anywhere in the world the people would be furious and protesting in the streets if such a law was passed. Read yourself the article below:

After years of discussion and controversy, the National System of Automatic Vehicle Identification (Siniav) will finally get started. As of June 30, the system created by the federal government to electronically identify all types of vehicles will begin to be deployed throughout the country under responsibility of Detrans (regional organ that control vehicles registration), it is expected that 100% of the national fleet – estimated at 70 million units – will have the electronic tag until 2014.

The system aims to better control and supervision traffic in cities and highways, while providing other benefits – and costs – to the drivers. The cost of the “electronic board” are not yet established, but should be close to R$20 (around 10 dollars), which will be paid by the owners of vehicles.

How it works

Besides the internal chips, the system will consist of reading antennas in the cities, which will feed local and national databases. Communication is based on radio frequency (RFID), according to the National Traffic Department (Denatran), “through a confidential , secure and standard communication protocol, property of the Union, provided to entities duly licensed, by signing the confidentiality agreement.”

Based on the data collected, the various public bodies may act on specific issues, to improve control of traffic, identify bottlenecks, fiscal and administrative irregularities or even take over control of rotation schemes and areas of restricted circulation. The system will also allow the tracking of vehicles that require special handling (hazardous materials, heavy-weight, special vehicles, ambulances) or cases of public safety and have records of cases such as robbery, kidnapping and cloning.

The Denatran advises that the information included in the Siniav system are the as same as those visible today: year, make, model, fuel, power and license plate. It will not have the Renavam (national identification number), chassis and other data. “Vehicles which are been searched will have aditional data placed in the database such as is stolen, theft, or others. In no event may include personal data of the owner” says the the organ.

The chip will be located at the windshield of the car or elsewhere on motorcycles and trailers – trailers and semitrailers are also obliged to adhere. In case of violation, the tag will be automatically discarded to prevent cloning. The executive director of the Brazilian Association of Risk Management and Tracking and Monitoring Technology (Gristec), Wanderley Sigali, considers the system safe. “Of course, the institute Wernher von Braun [which is developing chip technology] is creating a protection system for it. But even as information banks are sometimes robbed, we can not say that there is a system which is 100% secure”, he says.

To Col. Paulo Roberto de Souza, security adviser to the NTC & Logistics, “the idea is spectacular.” It highlights the importance of greater enforcement also for tax collections. “Here in Sao Paulo, the fleet is 7 million units, and 30% doesn’t pay nothing. Then, when it is installed within the city – and is expected to install 3000 antennas – they will be caught and the council will be able to collect the taxes”, he analyzes.

Souza believes in the system security. “You have an entire control that it will not be used in bad faith. The data is controlled by Denatran, which is the central body, and is encrypted and confidential. The access to the system will be limited to the person who can identify themselves as police or other authorized body. If someone violates the secrecy, it is possible to know who did it. This person will be criminalized”, he says.

Greater control

The Siniav is innovative internationally. No other country has adopted a similar system so comprehensive, and Brazil may be the first to use it on all vehicles.

Perhaps the change that impact the drivers most significantly is the traffic control. Traffic lights can be adjusted according to the volume of vehicles in each direction, controlled by demand. You can also better control the congested regions.

Mr. Sigali also highlights the possibility of change in the way toll are collected under the umbrella dealer. “Instead of having a toll plaza, where everyone who goes to pay the same value, using the control of the antennas it will be possible to charge by the miles ran through the road,” he explains. Another alternative would be supervisory control the timing of entry and exit of the highway, inspecting if the vehicle complied or not with the speed limits.

Near Reality

The official date for the commencement of installation operations in all national Detrans is June 30, but the results of the aplication the technology should come after the most comprehensive fleet. According to Resolution 212 of 2006 of Denatran, which regulates the Siniav, “no vehicle, motorized, electrical, trailer and semi-trailer can be licensed and drive on roads open to traffic without being equipped with the electronic board.”

This goes for all cars, motorcycles, boat carts, trailers and all others who drive by land (except military vehicles military). When the law comes into effect officially in June 2014, drivers who are not suited to the system Siniav will be fined and lose five points in their portfolios.

To Sigali, “from a technical standpoint, there is no doubt that it is possible to equip entire fleet by 2014. The problem is the political barriers, bureaucratic, agreements and formalization.” The director of Gristec does not believe in a lot of changes in market tracking and cargo monitoring and considers this just a different technology, which will help consolidate control.

Brazilian Judge denounces secret societies in EUA and possible infiltration in the Brazilian judiciary

Brazil Coat of Arms

The Judge of 2nd Civil Court of Juiz de Fora, in Minas Gerais, Brazil, Luiz Guilherme Marques, wrote last year an article in Legal Jus Vigilantibus (a web-site with legal articles) entitled “Secret Societies lurking the judiciary,” on which he denounces the Illuminati, Skull and Bones, the CFR and Bilderberg group, as groups whose main interest is the abolition of governments and on their infiltration into all areas of society including the U.S. Supreme Court and the possible infiltration in the Brazilian judiciary.

On a time that the judiciary is always on the front page for scandals, it takes a lot of courage to expose himself like that, my sincere congratulations to him.

I think it is relevant also to mention that all candidates for president of Brazil were in some way or another related to secret societies or to the occult. Dilma, the winner candidate, has said Read the rest of this entry »

Mad Soy Disease Strikes Brazil

Monsanto GMO

Institute of Science in Society


They call it “mad soy disease” in Brazil, where it has been spreading from the north, causing yield losses of up to 40 percent, most notably in the states of Mato Grosso, Tocantins and Goias.
Like its namesake, mad cow disease, it is incurable [1, 2, 3].

This is the latest GMO fiasco to surface since our report on the meltdown in the USA [4] (GM Crops Facing Meltdown in the USA, SiS 46), China [5] (GM-Spin Meltdown in China, SiS 47), and Argentina [6] (Argentina’s Roundup Human Tragedy, SiS 48).

Mad soy disease has afflicted soybeans sporadically in the hot northern regions of Brazil in the past years, Read the rest of this entry »

Brazil is champion of censorship requests to google

Google provides a tool that shows statistics of government requests to google for user data and removal of search results or any of its products. It is called “Transparency Report: Government Requests”

Today I remembered reading about it somewhere and I went to check the position of my dear country Brazil. What was my surprise to see that Brazil is the absolute champion in requests to remove content and runner-up in requests for disclosure of information, second only to the USA on this last. The government of Brazil, from January until June of 2010 sent 2435 requests for disclosure of information and Read the rest of this entry »
