Thanks, Barb, for bringing Monsanto's misdeeds into our consciousness.  And thankfully the system has worked for these victims.  Fingers are crossed the Supreme Court will not hear any appeals and all verdicts in favor of plaintiffs will be allowed to stand.

Good news indeed.

Hi ilinda, yes we will keep a good thought.
Monsanto still has a lot of power...?
But hopefully this will end someday... This trial that happened, I will look into it more, 2016.  Heard about it when it happened, not sure what affect it had on the company. I hope it was the beginning of the end for Monsanto.   Differing opinions on the trial, as to the legal validty but IMHO they got it right, declaring Monsanto Guilty Of Crimes Against The Planet And Humanity. Article link and part of it below:

By Eradicating Ecocide
Global Research, October 18, 2016

Verdict: Monsanto Guilty Of Crimes Against The Planet And Humanity

Judge Françoise Tulkens: “civil society has to help International Law to develop and include ecocide” (Monsanto Tribunal Day 3, The Hague)

– and indeed civil society is helping. Not only did the Monsanto Tribunal open up the space for testimony to be heard, but it also demonstrated that complex issues, such as significant harm arising from corporate ecocide, can be addressed through the rule of law. Ecocide is not yet a crime, but as Judge Tulkens declared, “civil society has to help International Law to develop and include ecocide.”

And Judge Tulkens is a judge who speaks informedly – her legal background includes professorship specialising in the fields of general criminal law, comparative and European criminal law, juvenile justice and human rights protection systems before and tenureship as a European Court of Human Rights Judge. Tulkens is also the author of many publications in the areas of human rights and criminal law.

Was it a Kangaroo court, as Monsanto claimed? (See Guardian story here) or was it the first steps towards ecological justice? You decide…

Celebrating the Dads and Granddads all weekend...

Remembering my own father and grandfathers:

Fishing together at the lake, and glad he didn't get flustered when I cast my hook and line into a tree 

Searching for lost golf balls in the woods and being rewarded with a grape soda

Discussing books on the phone after I moved away

Watching storms come in on the prairie and counting the distance between lightning and thunder

Listening to him tell stories and jokes in the tornado cellar

Using an ink pen to draw mustaches together on authority figures and politicians in the Sunday papers

A pack of chewing gum always in his shirt pocket

His pipe with a wonderful familiar smell

Basement full of half-baked inventions

Feeding every cat in the neighborhood

Making stuffed animals "talk" like Donald Duck

An amazing library that I never got tired of exploring

Good at fixing things

Steeled my nerves when walking me down the aisle with everyone staring

Staying up til midnight on weekends to watch old movies together

Loved Easter egg hunts with difficult hiding places

Lied about catching the Easter bunny and being kicked in the shins

Stayed up all night on Christmas Eve every year drinking coffee with the menfolk, because they were too excited to go to sleep

Sometimes bought me complicated toys meant mostly for him

Would pretend to get mad if losing board and card games

Allowed us kids to have a sip of wine or brandy on New Year's Eve

Graciously climbed trees to clean up all the tissue paper when friends decorated the yard during the night before my 18th birthday

Would get me out of school to take me on trips to historic places

Taught me how to build an igloo one winter

Was a master gardener

Have a wonderful weekend fellas!



R.R. wow, is this about your own father?
sounds like such a wonderful man.
Have A Blessed Day,
Barb T.

Thanks Barb - That was a composite of my father and both grandfathers.   :)

Homesteading Humor?

This series goes beyond the typical "getting started with homesteading" series to having grown so close to the land that you begin to learn its mysteries.

This Appalachian farmer loves to discover, and sometimes perhaps invent, all the bizarre stories on and about his property, telling his tales with a charming Virginia lilt.  All the while going about his chores on the homestead, in the background of the narrative rather than the foreground.

Barb, My grandfather with the pipe never told jokes, but was always pleasant. 

My other grandfather was the one who lied about being kicked by the Easter Bunny. 

My father was the one most likely to joke around, and was the one who drew mustaches on politicians in the newspapers  :)

Very touching, whether it's about a dad or granddad or both.

Amazon Tribe Wins Lawsuit Against Big Oil, Saving Millions Of Acres Of Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest is well known across the world for being the largest and most dense area of woodland in the world. Spanning across nine countries, the Amazon is home to millions of different animal and plant species, as well as harboring some for the world's last remaining indigenous groups. The Waorani people of Pastaza are an indigenous tribe from the Ecuadorian Amazon and have lived in the Rainforest for many generations. However, their Home came under threat from a large oil company - they didn't take it lightly.

Legal Win
After a long legal battle with a number of organizations, the Waorani people successfully protected half a million acres of their ancestral territory in the Amazon rainforest from being mined for oil drilling by huge oil corporations. The auctioning off of Waorani lands to the oil companies was suspended indefinitely by a three-judge panel of the Pastaza Provincial Court. The panel simply trashed the consultation process the Ecuadorian government had undertaken with the tribe in 2012, which rendered the attempt at land purchase null and void.

This win for the indigenous tribe has now set an invaluable legal precedent for other indigenous nations across the Ecuadorian Amazon. After accepting a Waorani bid for court protection to stop an oil bidding process, the court also halted the potential auctioning off of 16 oil blocks that cover over 7 million acres of indigenous territory.

Government Corruption
While there is no evidence, some people believe that the Ecuadorian government may be accepting bribes in some roundabout way. The land in question is meant to be protected under Ecuador’s constitution that establishes the inalienable, unseizable and indivisible rights of indigenous people to maintain possession of their ancestral lands and obtain their free adjudication.

Furthermore, the constitution also states that there is a need for prior consultation on any plans to exploit the underground resources, given the probable environmental and cultural impacts on tribal communities. The government claim they did do this in 2012, however, the tribe alleges that the agreement they came to was based upon fraudulent practices in favor of the oil companies and the government was favoring their bottom line over the people the actually still live on this valuable land. Due to this, the judges ordered the Ecuadorian government to conduct a new consultation, applying standards set by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights before anything else is agreed regarding the exploitation of the natural resources below the ground.

After a long legal battle with a number of organizations, the Waorani people successfully protected half a million acres of their ancestral territory in the Amazon rainforest from being mined for oil drilling by huge oil corporations. The auctioning off of Waorani lands to the oil companies was suspended indefinitely by a three-judge panel of the Pastaza Provincial Court. The panel simply trashed the consultation process the Ecuadorian government had undertaken with the tribe in 2012, which rendered the attempt at land purchase null and void.

Excellent news Barb - isn't that forest considered to be the "lungs" of the earth?

Also, if it's true that PTB want to clear-cut as many trees as possible in order to implement 5G in every corner of the planet, we have all the more reason to celebrate this decision.

Yes and it is an amazing win... not  necessarily a permanent one, but a wonderful occurrence!
