Missing Permits Raise Stakes for Escape of AquaBounty’s Genetically Engineered Salmon | Cornucopia Institute

Washington, D.C.—AquaBounty’s experimental production facility of genetically engineered (GE) salmon in Panama is missing multiple legally required permits and inspections, including a wastewater discharge permit, according to an administrative claim filed today in Panama by the environmental group Centro de Incidencia Ambiental de Panama (CIAM).

Missing Permits Raise Stakes for Escape of AquaBounty's Genetically Engineered Salmon | Cornucopia Institute

The Centro de Incidencia Ambiental de Panama complaint comes on the heels of several other reports of major problems at AquaBounty’s Panamanian facility, including the company reporting “lost” GE salmon, which resulted from the region’s notoriously severe weather. The area around AquaBounty’s facility also experiences routine, destructive flooding.

“Once GE salmon escape, there is no retrieving them,” Dana Perls, food and technology campaigner for Friends of the Earth, stated. “It’s clear that consumers don’t want GE salmon, so why are we putting wild salmon and the environment at risk?”

FOOD *INTERVENTION * ALIMENTAIRE HIVER 2013 #1

Food Intervention Alimentaire #1 2013-14

(English description below)

FOOD *INTERVENTION * ALIMENTAIRE HIVER 2013 #1

Intervention Alimentaire est avant tout une façon de nourrir les gens qui ont faim gratuitement et régulièrement et pendant tout l’hiver.

Comme la plupart des refuges et missions du centre-ville de Montréal n’offrent pas de repas la fin de semaine, j’ai créé cette action en hiver 2012 afin de prendre un peu la relève. Après 17 semaines nous avions préparé et distribué environ 4200 sandwichs, 1000 biscuits et des centaines d’autres items. Alors je repars l’expérience dès le 1er décembre 2013 et j’invite tout le monde à venir participer au moins une fois cet hiver.

Donc…

Intervention Alimentaire prépare et distribue de la nourriture aux sans-abris, individus défavorisés, travailleuses/eurs de rue, et quiconque a faim chaque dimanche à Montréal. Le tout gratuitement par une équipe de bénévoles qui inclut souvent des gens de la Cuisine du peuple (CdP), Food Not Bombs (FNB) et la Coop sur Généreux (qui nous prêtent souvent leur espace cuisine), mais tout le monde est libre de participer et les équipes changent souvent d’une semaine à l’autre. L’activité se termine la fin de semaine du 30 mars 2014.

Aidez-nous à nourrir les gens. Bénévoles toujours recherchés pour l’approvisionnement le samedi et pour la cuisson et la distribution le dimanche.

DÉTAILS DU PROJET :

* Mission : créer un réseau de récupération et de distribution de nourriture qui encourage les commerces à réduire ce qu’ils mettent aux vidanges et qui nous laisse transformer ces items “non-vendables” en repas pour les gens qui ont faim….et ce gratuitement et régulièrement.

– trouver de la nourriture (donations, dumpstering, individus, etc)
– cuisiner / préparer (sandwichs, wraps, soupes, etc.)
– distribuer dans les rues / parcs
– créer des partenariats avec des épiceries et organismes

** L’approvisionnement / dumpstering / récupération se fait chaque samedi. On se rejoint à la Coop sur Généreux à 13h pour ensuite partir en expédition. Une fois revenu avec le butin, il faut trier, couper, nettoyer, préparer le tout pour le lendemain.
(4518 rue Papineau, entrée par la ruelle Généreux, juste au nord de Mt-Royal – 3 étage)

** La cuisson et montage des sandwichs se fait à la Coop Généreux entre 11h et 16h30 chaque dimanche. La distribution se fait entre environ 17h et 19h, selon le nombre de sandwichs et le nombre de bénévoles
(4518 rue Papineau, entrée par la ruelle Généreux, juste au nord de Mt-Royal – 3 étage)

** Besoins :
– DES GROS CHAUDRONS (12 pouces de diamètre, 10 pouces de profondeur et plus gros)
– nourriture (sans viande et de préférence végétalienne)
– transport (char, vélo, etc.)
– serviettes, tasses en carton
– café en grains/moulu, tisanes, thés, chocolat chaud, etc
– contenants/boîtes/bacs pour garder et transporter la nourriture
– bénévoles pour ramasser, cuisiner ou distribuer

FOOD *INTERVENTION * ALIMENTAIRE WINTER 2013 #1

Food Intervention is primarily a way of feeding those who are hungry on a regular basis throughout the winter and for free.

Since the majority of missions and shelters do not serve meals on the weekends, I created this action in the winter of 2012 to take up some of the slack. After 17 weeks, we had prepared and distributed about 4200 sandwiches, 1000 cookies and hundreds of other items. I am therefore redoing the action this winter as of December 1st, 2013 and I invite everyone to come out and help us at least once this winter.

Therefore…

Food Intervention prepares and distributes food to the homeless, the disadvantaged, street workers, and anyone who is hungry each Sunday in Montreal. All of this is done for free by teams of volunteers, which often includes members of the Cuisine du peuple (People’s Kitchen), Food Not Bombs (FNB) and the Coop sur Généreux (who often lend us their kitchen space), but everyone and anyone can join in and the teamschange almost weekly. The activity will end the weekend of March 30th 2014.

Help us feed those in need. Volunteers are always needed (sourcing on Saturdays and cooking and distribution on Sundays).

PROJECT DETAILS:

* Mission: to create a free and autonomous food recovery and distribution network by encouraging local businesses to stop throwing out food items that are no longer “sellable” and instead let us transform them into meals for those in need…..all for free.

** Food sourcing/dumpster diving/recovery is done every Saturday. We meet at the Coop sur Généreux at 1pm and then head out on expedition. Once back with the spoils, we must sort, cut, clean and wash everything for Sunday
(4518 Papineau, 3rd floor – but acces is by the alley Généreux, just north of Mt-Royal)

** Cooking is done at the Coop Généreux, between 11am and 4:30pm every Sunday. Distribution is done between about 5pm and 7pm depending on the number of sandwiches and volunteers
(4518 Papineau, 3rd floor – but acces is by the alley Généreux, just north of Mt-Royal)

* Needs:
– LARGE POTS (12 inches diameter, 10 inches deep and larger)
– food (no meat, strong preference for vegan)
– transportation (car, bicycle, etc)
– napkins, paper coffee cups
– coffee (ground or whole), tea, herbal tea, hot chocolate, etc.
– containers/bins/boxes to keep and transport the food
– volunteers to find, cook and distribute

Monsanto’s failed GM Maize pushed into rest of Africa

African Centre for Biosafety, 24 October 2013
http://www.acbio.org.za/index.php/publications/rest-of-africa/447

Today the African Centre for Biosafety (ACB) released a new report,  “Africa bullied to grow defective Bt Maize: the failure of Monsanto’s MON810 maize in South Africa”, showing how Monsanto’s GM maize, which utterly failed in SA, is now being foisted on the rest of the continent, through “sleight of hand”.

An Infographic Shines a Light on GMOs in America | Inspired Bites

Especially for those of you in the USA, but Canadians should be concerned as well.

“If you have no idea that the chemical industry quietly slipped ingredients into our food supply, you’re not alone.  If you find it all a bit shocking, you’re not alone either, especially when you learn that the U.S. was one of the only developed countries in the world to do this to its citizens.

These genetically engineered ingredients were designed by the chemical industry so that food crops like corn and soy could be routinely sprayed with their chemicals.  It’s a brilliant business model for a chemical company.

But it can be a bit tough to hear if you are an eater.”

2013 GMO-Free Long-Term Food Storage Review | TheSleuthJournal

If you are looking for good GMO-free foods to store in case of power failures or natural disasters this site has some suggestions for you.

“Due to weather or some other catastrophic event, the most important necessities include water and food. Without those items, survival is futile. That being said, when you store up on food, you want to make sure that you’re taking certain precautions to ensure you and your family not only survive, but maintain a certain level of comfort and health.”
