Africa’s Biodiversity is Stolen!People pay a lot of money through tax payments on
medicine, food and other products to enrich the Northern pharmaceuticals
and agricultural companies. These same companies go to Africa
and take Africa’s knowledge of local herbs, plants, livestock
germ, seeds, etc. These same devious people monopolize
on Africa’s knowledge and deny OuR Black African people
to their products. Shame!
Pharmaceuticals and agriculture companies sue each other
and other companies when they LEAVE AFrica. About 100 companies
can patent one plant and be accepted as legal. They take each other
to court in their OWN countries. It bewilders me how they accept this
as legal when its really ILLEGAL.
Africa loses BILLIONS of money just from Biodiversity. Africa’s
resources are open to theft. They are ALLOWING overdeveloped
nations to patent laws exploiting Africa.
This is how they getting the information. Black African herbalists and
Black individuals are interviewed in Africa’s communities. The Africans
reveal how plants and herbs are gathered from soil, mountains,
bushes, forests, gardens, farms. They also tell which time of
season and year the plants, herbs, and seeds are ready
and more. Data is entered by visitors and into computers
to be analyzed. 90% of Madagascar’s forests are
wrecked because of the the NOrth fighting to svae plants.
The country’s famous plants the Rosy Periwinkle
gains $100 million for the Eli LIly plant. Madagascur
gets nothing in return. It’s like water just evaporating.
But we want the water to flow and move. We don’t
want it to be like a dirty pond, fresh water is best.
But that’s how the situation is.
Tourism, western agriculture systems, religion,
wrong harvesting patterns and global piracy are ways
Africa’s biodiversity is being wiped out.
Canthium glabriflorumis hare are disappearing
from Africa because people are using them for
carving handcrafts and artworks for tourists’ souvenir.
The changing patterns of agriculture systems
have caused plants to disappear and have
cause gene engineeringof plants and patenting
Plants in Africa have been destroyed because
of beliefs and religion as well. People even use
their own form of Christianity to destroy Africa’s
herbs, plants and seeds.
Biodiversity was a weapon against pests, AND
bugs could have the plant of their choice. The enviornment
being wrecked and biodiversity in Africa occurs
at a large speed because of genetic engineered pressure
from nations to put patents on all life.
This is why Africa is fed with food subsidies from the
USA and European agribusineses. They are killing the
traditional seed to take out the biodiversity on the continent.
Biodiversity being destroyed caused loss of seeds, plants,
microorganisms, anthropods, and other animals.
The Black Africans know about plants that cure anxiety,
pain, depression and other illness.
The Hoodia Cactus is a plant that tends to grow in
Kalahari’s desert. This plant has medicinal properties that
starves off hunger and lets the San hunters walk miles
and miles. This plant is plant p57 as an appetite suppressing
ingredient. OH, and the diet department was getting major
Money from it, I’m talking about MILLIONS of dollars.
The San people found out and sued
these people. Then the people paid 8% to help build schools
and clinics. Uvaria Klaineri is a plant of Africa that the
Pharmaceutical multinationals own STill and deny
affordable HIV and AIds drugs to Africa. I wish they
would spread more NEWs on the CURE for AIDS.
I did a post about this before!
