Bill Gates dumps another $10 million into researching new GM crops for agricultural takeover of Africa

(NaturalNews) The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is once again busy funding efforts to promote the spread of the agricultural cancer that are genetically-modified (GM) crops, this time in the form of a $10 million grant it recently issued to a group of British scientists working on new GM crops that require no fertilizer. According to the U.K.'s BBC, the justification behind the need for such research is that the GM crops will supposedly benefit African farmers that are unable to afford fertilizer.

Researchers from the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norwich will specifically use the grant, which happens to be the largest single investment into GM crops ever made in that country by a private organization, to create novel varieties of corn, wheat, and rice that pull nitrogen out of the air rather than from material fertilizers. Certain crops, including beans already do this naturally, which is what led scientists to begin a process of trying to artificially splice nitrogen-pulling genes into various other crops.

Except of course, as the article goes on to state, that these farmers in Africa will be forced into the same 'seed-slavery' as other farmers around the world! Having to buy the licenses from Monsanto, Dow, etc every single year while being prohibited to keep any seeds that the save or harvest from their crops!
On top of that, the claim that yields in crops are greater with GM seeds are not true,

"If you look in America, yields haven't increased by any significant amount and often go down," said Pete Riley, Campaign Director at GM Freeze, an alliance of organizations that is raising awareness about the deception of GM technologies, about the overall failure of GM crop systems to produce more food than conventional and organic crop systems. "Now we're seeing real, major problems for farmers in terms of weeds that are resistant to the herbicides which GM crops have been modified to tolerate," added Riley.

Africa seems like the perfect place for this kind of experimentation to go on for ol' Billy Boy.. Easily corruptible governments looking for a payday, easy policies and limited restrictions in environmental policy.. (Hmmm sounds like the U.S, Canada and Europe too, no?) PLUS, his involvment in de-population plans plays perfectly into this type of experimentation and production of GM crops, all in the guise of wanting to 'save the Africans'.. Noones buying Bill

Hereis a great ATS thread by deltaalphanovember, from 2010 is a good read,
