Germany: and the crosses of “Farmer Willi”!

 

Suddenly they were there. The green crosses of wood, covered with white signs. But what is behind it?

kreuz mit Zettel

On 4 September 2019, the State Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner and Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze have decided, inter alia, that the cancer weed killer glyphosate from 2024 completely, and particularly harmful pesticides in most nature reserves will be already banned.

The insect killing is to be contained with it. The farmers should also create retreat areas for insects, the federal government wants to identify more biotopes. With 100 million euros, research on insect repellent is to be supported.

Even the controversial animal welfare label will come.
In addition, more agricultural subsidies, which have so far been paid mainly for the simple possession of land, should finance environmental projects by farmers, for example.

The farmers have organized a rebellion under the “Farmer Willi”.

Currently, the “farmer Willi” calls all farmers to protest with green wooden crosses in their fields against the “agricultural package” of the Federal Government.

But in his statements he often advocates the interests of agrochemical companies such as Bayer AG.

“Bayer / Monsanto, Syngenta, Gene-Lobby & Co. see their profit interests by the “agricultural package” massively endangered, but psychologically clever as they are, do not act on their own, but send targeted “farmer Willi, the small farmers & rural women “ before.

Behind the ridiculous crosses is actually a nationwide campaign.. “Protect the farmers by a yes to the poison and factory farming”.

Similar PR actions and the enormous power of the agricultural lobby in the past have led to massive groundwater problems with nitrate in Germany.

The farmers say, “The package is” so closely tied up “that it takes away the air of many companies to breathe.
In agriculture, this would result in a significant land loss of many areas, and the use of many resources should be massively reduced. This is an encroachment on our property values, as areas would be worthless and could no longer be used for food production.
Furthermore, there is a high risk of “falling yields” and threatens a decline in regional products.

At last, a high price for an animal welfare indicator, in view of the many already existing labels on the market, no one needs more “!!

And we say: In reality, it’s the other way around:
If the soil continues to be poisoned,
the insects continue to die,
the groundwater continues to be contaminated
and our food continues to deteriorate,
then our diet will destroy our lives.

So we see the crosses in the fields as a symbol of death, exploitation, and destruction of the animal and nature world.
And we consider this abuse of Christian symbols for poison, glyphosate and factory farming not only ridiculous, but a sign of farmer primitiveness.

‘Clustermap’ All of a Cluster !

Hi all;

 

well our global Clustrmap (the World map on the left of the site) which we use to see where visitors are arriving from seems to have been a bit up in the air over the last few days to say the least.

This service is totally out of our control.

https://clustrmaps.com/site/1a9kn    

Visitor traffic for yesterday showed that zero people had attended the site – where as in fact we had around 300 visitors.

We do not know what has gone wrong, but at the moment things seem a bit ‘iffy’.

All we will do is keep banging out posts as usual with the hope that Clustrmap gets back on track and shows the real amounts of visitors.

Regards Mark and Venus.

Scotland: Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) clash with gamekeepers over missing Scots sea eagles.

RSPB clash with gamekeepers over missing Scots sea eagles

TWO tagged sea eagles disappeared on the same day after last being recorded on Scottish grouse moors.

RSPB Scotland has appealed for information after the protected birds of prey, also known as white-tailed eagles, disappeared “in highly suspicious circumstances” this summer. Transmissions from the tags ceased on July 22. One of the birds, known as ‘White L’, was a male tagged as a chick in Fife in 2016. His tag last transmitted on a moor near the Banchory to Fettercairn road in Aberdeenshire. The other chick disappeared on managed moorland at Tomatin, on the A9 between Inverness and Aviemore. It was born in Inverness-shire.

RSPB Scotland said the Inverness-shire moor is “in an area with a history of raptor persecution, including numerous suspicious disappearances of tagged golden eagles over several years”.

White-tailed eagles are Scotland’s largest birds of prey, with an eight-foot wingspan.

Ian Thomson, RSPB Scotland’s head of investigations, said: “Yet again, rare, protected birds of prey have disappeared in highly suspicious circumstances, with their last known locations on grouse moors. And yet again, we can be almost certain that these birds have been killed, with those responsible destroying all the evidence.

“The disappearance of these two eagles is more than a loss of two birds; it means any future breeding success they might have had, helping to boost the numbers of these rare birds, has also been destroyed.”

In both cases, RSPB Scotland said the tags ceased transmitting with no prior evidence of any technical issues.

Follow-up investigations by Police Scotland and the National Wildlife Crime Unit, including searches of the final known locations of the birds, have yielded no further information as to their likely demise.

Industry body Scottish Land & Estates (SLE) said it was “frustrating” that RSPB Scotland had waited three months to issue its appeal.

SLE executive director Sarah-Jane Laing said: “It is frustrating that more than three months have passed before the appeal for information has been issued publicly by RSPB and we await further information from Police Scotland. We question RSPB’s decision to immediately point the finger of blame at grouse moors rather than to find out what has actually happened.”

The Scottish Gamekeepers Association said it was possible the tags had failed. 

A spokesman said: “There needs to be a degree of caution when dealing with satellite tag incidents.

“Tags can and do fail. They only give an indication of birds’ movements because there can be considerable time lapses in data being received.

“A bird can therefore travel a fair distance from the point the last known locational fix was sent, which makes searching often futile. We have seen cases where birds that have been given up for dead have later been located.”

Germany: “calves cheaper than canary birds”

 

The real scandal is not the price, but that animals are traded, abused, exploited and murdered.

Calves now cost less than nine euros, according to SPIEGEL-MAGAZIN information. Such cheap prices are “the sad side effect of industrial agriculture,” says the Green Party politician Ostendorff (full member of the Committee on Food and Agriculture).

Cattle breeders in Germany are currently facing an unprecedented drop in prices.

A black and white cow calf was still worth 8.49 euros in October.

This follows from the response of the Ministry of Agriculture to the Federal MEP Parliament, Friedrich Ostendorff, according to the information of an industrial service.

Market restrictions due to bluetongue are responsible for the price erosion, according to the ministry.
Transport restrictions, such as to Spain, have recently led to an oversupply of female calves, which cost just under 30 euros in June.

The German Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner had expressed in a letter to her Bavarian counterparts doubt (!!!) whether such transports are compatible with the EU Regulation. A few weeks old animals are often over 19 hours in the truck on the way. Animal welfare, according to Ostendorff, that is not.

Hubertus Paetow, President of the German Agricultural Society, says that the problem has a far greater dimension: “The calf has no real place in the value chain and so it ends up being squandered in principle,” he told the magazine Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.Calves are co-products of milk production”(!!!)

But with the restrictions alone, the price decline is hardly explainable. The green agricultural expert considers other reasons more important: The cheap prices are “the sad side effect of industrial agriculture,” says Ostendorff.
“The intensive milk production also leads to too many calves being produced for the market.”

Ottmar Ilchmann of the Association of Farming Agriculture considers the prices for a scandal: “There a calf costs less than a canary bird.” The one-sided breeding of certain breeds only on milk yield makes their offspring for the mast uneconomical.
In addition, the food supplies are scarce due to the drought.

“These thin calves are often no longer considered animals, but only as damage.”

My comment: In this one sentence manifests the perversion of industrial meat- and milk mafia:

“These thin calves are often no longer considered animals, but only as damage.”

In the concentration camps of the Nazis, about 6 million human victims were murdered and also raped, tortured…
Client: none (or one)!

In the concentration camps of the perpetrators of the 21st century, about 900 million (Germany) and 70-75 billion (worldwide) non-human victims are raped, tortured, tortured and murdered every year.

Client: Billions of carnivorous human animals.

And yet there is one difference: The Nazis did not breed their victims!
The perpetrators of the animal concentration camps are multiplying their (non-human) victims billions!

The crimes of the Nazis ended in 1945!
The crimes committed in the Tier KZ’s of the 21st century, with billions of non-human victims, continue unabated!

This fact proves that the human species belongs to a fascist race, and that out of conviction.
