France: says “no” to glyphosate!


flagge francepng

Excellent!  – France announces end of glyphosate!

French Minister of Agriculture Didier Guillaume announced that France will stop using glyphosate.
France also plans to halve the use of pesticides, insecticides and fungicides by 2025.



As early as January 2019, a court in France withdrew approval from Bayer’s Roundup Pro 360 weed killer.
This is a herbicide that contains glyphosate of the “Monsanto / Bayer” group and is mainly used in the wine industry. In 2018, a ban on five neonicotinoid pesticides entered into force in France.
This move brings the country to the head of a campaign against chemicals blamed for decimating bee colonies.

In May 2019, the Bayer / Monsanto group also lost the third trial. Bayer / Monsanto has to pay more than two billion dollars in compensation to a couple suffering from cancer. The jury was able to see company documents showing that Monsanto “never had any interest in finding out if Roundup was safe.”

There are already 13,400 complaints in the US against Monsanto. The EU extended glyphosate approval at the end of 2017 against French resistance.

But now it’s official: France stops using glyphosate! despite criticism from the main French agricultural association FNSEA.

According to a report by the Department of Agriculture (FAS) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), French Minister of Agriculture Didier Guillaume confirmed that France is banning the use of glyphosate from 2021 with limited exceptions.
He also announced that France plans to halve the use of pesticides, insecticides and fungicides by 2025.  Agriculture Minister Didier Guillaume recommends organic and biodynamic agriculture and urges producers to return to the methods of cultivation used by their grandparents, which have been forgotten, as read on on 21 May.

The widespread use of pesticides is coming under increasing pressure as their negative impact on bees and other wildlife becomes more apparent, but that does not suit the chemical corporations.

abwurf-von-agent-orange-ueber“Agent Orange”- Poison Chemicals from Monsanto in Vietnam


Bayer, BASF and Syngenta are even threatening billions of euros in damages if the EU bans neonicotinoid insecticides on fields.
The EU did it anyway, but still with loopholes and not to the extent that France did.
Since 1 September 2018, the ban on five neonicotinoid pesticides in France is in force.

While France’s most important agricultural federation, FNSEA, and many other French agricultural organizations have already made negative statements, there are already producers of fruit and vegetables growing pesticide-free products.


My comment: During the Vietnam war, Monsanto was one of the main producers of the notorious defoliant “Agent Orange” – incidentally in a joint venture with Bayer – with which the US forces contaminated entire areas of the war zone. The sprayed from the air plant poison led for decades to serious diseases and malformations in the Vietnamese population.
Then the Vietnamese victims of US weed killers should also be compensated. Because a complaint of Vietnamese victims was rejected in 2005 by a US federal court. Until today!

Thanks to the Minister Didier Guillaume!

Unlike to Germany, there is at least a trace of responsibility and character in France. Our Minister of Agriculture Klöckner, you and your stupid companions in government, I would like to give you this shit to eat, so you realize how healthy and wholesome it is.

My best regards to all, Venus




Canada: Tell the ‘Honourable Minister’ To Wake Up and Take Action About the 100+ Zoo Animals That Have Been Neglected.



Firstly, we think that anyone who allows this to happen is not ‘Honourable’ – and being called the ‘Minister for Justice’ is simply a joke – where is the justice here ?

Please sign the petition so that the ‘honourable’ ‘Minister for Justice’ can wake up and do something about this.

Dead and Suffering Zoo Animals Deserve Justice

Target: The Honourable David Lametti, Minister of Justice for Canada

Goal: Punish the owner who allegedly neglected over 100 animals in a dilapidated zoo.

Over 100 animals suffered when they were reportedly neglected and denied life-saving care at a zoo. Investigators apparently found multiple species of animals in poor health with limited access to food. Demand that justice be served in this case.

“There were animals that didn’t seem to have access to adequate food and water, dilapidated enclosures, animals that appeared to be in need of veterinary care,” stated Ewa Demianowicz of Humane Society International Canada. SPCA Investigators descended on Montreal’s St-Édouard zoo following multiple allegations of animal cruelty and neglect. Visitors claimed that the enclosures were broken down and full of rocks and fallen branches. Grassy patches were seemingly sparse, limiting available food and prompting visitors to bring apples for the deer, alpacas, and goats. The investigation apparently found two alpacas in poor health and four deceased animals, including two tigers.

The zoo has been closed and animal welfare agencies are working together to transport the remaining animals to a safer location. Norman Trahan, the zoo’s owner, has been charged with two counts of cruelty and neglect. Sign below to demand that he receive the maximum penalty possible, if convicted.


Dear Minister Lametti,

Rescuers are working to move over 100 animals to a safer and healthier location after they were reportedly starved and denied life-saving care at St-Édouard zoo. Four dead animals, including two tigers, and two sick alpacas triggered the investigation that led to one of Montreal’s largest animal cruelty allegations. Visitors claimed that the enclosures were filled with debris and the animals were forced to drink green water. Concerned citizens routinely brought apples for the grazing animals to compensate for their apparent lack of food. This is unacceptable.

The person responsible for the alleged mistreatment of these animals must be punished. I demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case and ensure that the responsible party never be a caretaker for animals again.

Botswana: the elephant murder begins again


Botswana has about 130,000 elephants, the largest population in the world, and   Botswana is described as its last sanctuary in Africa.

Horrible! Botswana lifts ban on elephant hunting and commissions a Hollywood PR company to fight negative headlines 😡

While in other African countries elephants are almost extinct for their ivory and trophy hunting, Botswana has been called the paradise for elephants.
Botswana banned elephant hunting.
Although the EU and regional neighbors called for the lifting of the hunting ban imposed in 2014, Botswana remained firm.
Botswana is determined to continue fighting against trophy hunting, captive breeding, and ivory trade, according to the answer.
Botswana gained a notorious fame when Juan Carlos, who was WWF Honorary President and King of Spain at the time, broke his hip while hunting elephants.


It had long been expected that Botswana would not stand up to pressure, and now the time has come: the government is rescinding the ban.


The German Hunting Association welcomes the decision and the government of Botswana has even hired a Hollywood public relations firm to stop the negative reaction to its decision to continue trophy hunting.
The company will receive $ 125,000 over the next two months. The company’s clients include actress Meryl Streep, who has decided against selling and importing ivory.

It was not until March 2019 that Zimbabwe made terrible headlines! Again 30 elephant babies were sold to China.
Zimbabwe continues to sell its elephants to China.
They are torturously captured and airlifted to China by plane.

How can one state as a reason, one would have too many elephants, as now also in the Botswana the case, although the KAZA national park, a world-wide largest zone for nature protection and ecotourism seven years ago with 50 million euro German financing would have to provide sufficient space ?

KAZA, which was founded with German development aid in cooperation with the WWF, was signed by Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. But as it turned out, this park apparently only exists on paper.
What were 50 million euros paid for?
This “paper park” was supposedly built to protect elephants.

Elefanten8As said, the Botswana government has engaged a PR firm with close ties to Hollywood to fight back against the bad publicity triggered by the South African nation’s decision to lift the ban on elephant hunt, according to on 24 May 2019.

42 West, a company primarily known for its work with celebrities and the film industry, told the US Department of Justice last week that it will work with the Tourism Ministry of Botswana.
This emerges from a submission under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

This puts 42 West in an uncomfortable situation.
Big game hunting is a highly controversial issue, especially in Hollywood, and numerous prominent activists have opposed killing the world’s largest land mammal for sport, including some calls for a tourism boycott against Botswana.

Botswana’s hunting ban was imposed by a former president, Ian Khama, an outspoken conservationist.
However, current President Mokgweeti Masisi has called for the nation to be reopened for hunting, and the decision to lift the ban is set to face general elections in October 2019.

What did the government say?

Botswana has lifted the prohibition on elephant hunting and explains this with growing conflicts between humans and animals, which sometimes destroy the crop.

President Masisi set up a committee last June to review the ban imposed by his predecessor in 2014. In February, the committee recommended allowing the hunt again.

“The number and levels of conflicts between humans and elephants and the resulting impact on livelihoods increased,” said the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Tourism in a statement.

“Predators have increased and cause much damage by killing large numbers of livestock,” it continues, “and finally,” they would ensure that the “reintroduction of hunting is done in an orderly and ethical manner.” (!!!)

Elefanten- werden mit feuer bejagd

Botswana 23. Mai, The President has spoken: Let’s offer @TheEllenShow and all the other RACISTS who are peddling lies about our country & our #elephants, to send us their delivery address! We are ready to deliver.. #HumanLivesMatterToo #HandsOffBotswana

What is the background?

Most of the country’s elephants live in the country’s northern region, roaming across borders into Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The latest survey of wildlife suggests their numbers are not increasing as many rural people suspect, and conservationists are likely to say the decision aims to boost the president’s popularity among rural voters ahead of elections in October.

There are some 415,000 elephants in Africa, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with the population having been decimated largely due to poaching for ivory.

getöteter elefantpg

International campaigns to ban all ivory sales as a way to prevent illegal poaching have gained huge momentum, but there is disagreement over how to manage large, destructive elephant populations encroaching on human settlements.


My comment: Botswana is known as a destination for luxury safaris. That’s why the German Hunting Association has rubbed its hands, out of sheer joy for the regained freedom to murder elephants in Botswana.

The Botswana Department of the Environment asserted in a statement that the hunt would be in accordance with all wildlife laws and regulations. And I read today that there is already head money for every shot elephant!!

On the other hand, the organization Pro Wildlife suspects political reasons behind the decision. Botswana’s new president wants to win votes in rural areas in the new elections in October.
And so the victims are again the culprits.  For how else can one justify the imminent elephant murder if elephants are not portrayed as perpetrators?

After all, the corrupt government of Botswana has spent a lot of money on the PR company 42 West from Hollywood so that they can properly sell the planned massacre to the public.

But to assert that the hunt for life beings happens in this case because the elephants are overwhelmed, and because murder is the only useful option, I find this an insult to human ingenuity!

My best regards, Venus

Mark sent me this petition a few minutes ago: I did not know that. Please sign and share it.

We will not send our “delivery address” to the corrupt President Massisi. But we, the “racists” will raise our voices all over the world, and we all will fight to prevent the new massacre of these sensitive animals. And if he still does not get it, then we will call for a tourism boycott. We don`t need a PR company for that!
