Stop the Carcinogenic and Embryo Harming Herbicide Glyphosphate

Certain evidence is given that the herbicide Glyphosphate is carcinogenic and can cause harm to unborn children. In March 2015 the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified Glyphosphate as likely carcinogenic for humans. These findings are supported by independent studies not funded by the industry.

Glyphosphate, better known as RoundUp, is produced by Monsanto a combine which does also sell GMO (genetically manipulated organisms) made resitant against this herbicide, like f.i. genetically engineered soya or maize. While still the same teratogenic herbicide is used with plants certain kinds of 'superweed' have emerged which are resistant against Glyphosphate so that more and more Glyphosphate needs to be used. After the Vietnam War when conducting studies about whether Agent Orange was harmful or not Monsanto has simply exchanged some people from the samples of diseased veterans and the healthy in order to impede compensation for the veterans (Agent Orange was mainly made of Dioxin).

Ask the Federal Government of Germany to veto against Glyphosphate! While the EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, is warning the draft as laid out by the European Commission simply ignores the fatal consequences of Glyphosphate for humans and the environment. The BUND, a German ecology group, asks you to take action and sign this petition.




Stoppen Sie das krebserregende und keimschädigende Spritzmittel Glyphosphat

Das Unkrautvernichtungsmittel Glyphosat steht im Verdacht, Embryonen zu schädigen und Krebs auszulösen. Im März 2015 hat die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) Glyphosat als wahrscheinlich krebserregend beim Menschen eingestuft. Ihr Urteil stützt die WHO auf unabhängige, nicht von der Industrie finanzierte Studien.

Glyphosphat, besser bekannt als RoundUp, wird von Monsanto hergestellt, einem Konzern der auch gleich dazu patentierte GVOs (gentechnisch veränderte Organismen) vertreibt, wie etwa gentechnisches Soya oder Mais. Da die Pflanzen immer mit der gleichen teratogenen Substanz gespritzt werden, sind bereits viele Unkräuter resistent („Superweed”) und es muß immer mehr Glyphosphat verwendet werden. Bei einer Studie über die Schädlichkeit von Agent Orange im Vietnamkrieg hat Monsanto einfach die Stichproben der Erkrankten mit jenen der Gesunden vertauscht und so eine Entschädigung der Vietnam-Veteranen verhindert (Agent Orange bestand überwiegend aus Dioxin).

Fordern Sie die deutsche Bundesregierung dazu auf ihr Veto gegen Glyphosphat einzulegen! Während die EFSA, die Europäischen Behörde für Lebensmittelsicherheit, warnt, kehrt die Vorlage der EU-Kommission die schwerwiegenden Folgen für Mensch und Umwelt einfach unter den Tisch. Der BUND fordert auf zu handeln und bittet um die Unterzeichnung dieser Petition.




Stop Illegal State Support for the Nuclear Power Plant in Packs!

The construction of two new Russian nuclear prototype reactors in Hungary can not be financed without massive state interventions. This even though costs about necessary means for security facilities and an intermediate store for radioactive waste are not included in the calculation. We can not guarantee that the 'budget variant' if in deed realized like this would deliver sufficient security.

Der Neubau zweier russischer Prototyp-Reaktoren in Ungarn wäre ohne massive Staatshilfen nicht finanzierbar. Dabei sind notwendige Sicherheitsmaßnahmen, auf deren Nachrüstung die ungarische Regierung möglicherweise verzichten wird, sowie Kosten für ein Zwischenlager noch gar nicht in der Rechnung enthalten.

Planned Restrictions on Cash Transactions for the Euro

Germany and France are planning to introduce an upper bound on cash transactions in the amount of 5,000€. That way the state would not only gain information about when money has been deposited or used but also about the exact intended use of the money. The purchase of a used car above 5,000€ or respective purchases of furniture or at the jeweler would then require a credit card (additional costs?!) or a bank transaction at least one day in advance of the purchase (if the salesman allows for it). In Europe and especially in Germany and Austria there is a well established culture of paying in cash while not all people do have a credit card.

Additionally there are plans to abolish the 500 Euro banknote. This kind of paper money is a.o. in use by travellers. A singleton 500 Euro banknote can be hidden easily. It can be very useful in dedicated cases: when everything else would be stolen or when all electronic means of payment become locked in the case of an ominous mistake (As it has already happened to the author of this web page because of an erroneous news about his alledged death.). When staying at a hotel 100 Euro can be used up fast while 500 Euro can provide for a fine time.

Officially it is all about fighting against terror and money laundry. Nonetheless there is the request of banks in the background which want to control the whole liquid assets of their customers. According to the former president of the constitutional court of Germany, Hans-Jürgen Papier such an upper bound would constitute an illegal infringement of freedom rights namely concerning contract-freeness and private autonomy. On the other hand it is not known how the terror militia Islamic State shall be forced to open up an online banking account.
