Wikileaks and Food Imperialism

Filed under: Food and Farms — Tags: , , , — Russ @ 6:27 am


This is just going to be a link dump on another of Wikileaks’ services to the world’s people. Among the leaks from the diplomatic cables have been several on food neoliberalism. These include the State department’s commitment to further inflict proprietary GMOs on Africa and Europe, to “punish” governments and economies which continue to resist GMOs, interlinkages of GMOs and the military-industrial complex (specifically the scam “AFRICOM”), the pope’s two faces on GMOs, the subversion of courts in foreing countries on behalf of the likes of McDonald’s, and other stuff.
I was going to write a post on it, but I don’t think I’ll get around to it. But I did want to offer the links, so here they are. There’s probably lots of others by now.


  1. Thanks for these references, Russ.
