No-Seeds-Arrested

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

It’s called the¬†Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.

The draft text of the law, which has already been amended several times due to a huge backlash from gardeners, is viewable here.

“This law will immediately stop the professional development of vegetable varieties for home gardeners, organic growers, and small-scale market farmers,” said Ben Gabel, vegetable breeder and director of¬†The Real Seed Catalogue. “Home gardeners have really different needs – for example they grow by hand, not machine, and can’t or don’t want to use such powerful chemical sprays. There’s no way to register the varieties suitable for home use as they don’t meet the strict criteria of the Plant Variety Agency, which is only concerned about approving the sort of seed used by industrial farmers.”

Virtually all plants, vegetable seeds and gardeners to eventually be registered by government

All governments are, of course, infatuated with the idea of registering everybody and everything. Under Title IV of the proposed EU law:

Title IV Registration of varieties in national and Union registers the varieties, in order to be made available on the market throughout the Union, shall be included in a national register or in the Union register via direct application procedure to the CVPO.

Gardeners must also pay fees to the EU bureaucracy for the registration of their seeds. From the proposed law text:

The competent authorities and the CPVO should charge fees for the processing of applications, the formal and technical examinations including audits, variety denomination, and the maintenance of the varieties for each year for the duration of the registration.

While this law may initially only be targeted at commercial gardeners, it sets a precedent to sooner or later go after home gardeners and require them to abide by the same insane regulations.

Government bureaucracy gone insane

“This is an instance of bureaucracy out of control,” says Ben Gabel. “All this new law does is create a whole new raft of EU civil servants being paid to move mountains of papers round all day, while killing off the seed supply to home gardeners and interfering with the right of farmers to grow what they want. It also very worrying that they have given themselves the power to regulate and licence any plant species of any sort at all in the future – not just agricultural¬†plants, but grasses, mosses, flowers, anything at all – without having to bring it back to the Council for a vote.”

As a hint of the level of insane bureaucracy that gardeners and vegetable growers will be subject to under this EU law, check out this language from the proposed EU law:

Specific provisions are set out on the registration in the Union variety register and with regard to the possibility for the applicant to launch an appeal against a CPVO decision. Such provisions are not laid down for the registration in the national variety registers, because they are subject to national administrative procedures. A new obligation for each national variety examination centre to be audited by the CPVO will be introduced with the aim to ensure the quality and harmonisation of the variety registration process in the Union. The examination centre of the professional operators will be audited and approved by the national competent authorities. In case of direct application to the CPVO it will audit and approve the examination centres it uses for variety examination.

Such language is, of course, Orwellian bureaucraticspeak that means only one thing: All gardeners should prepare to be subjected to total government insanity over seeds, vegetables and home gardens.

RealSeeds.co.uk warns about any attempt to actually try to understand the law by reading it:

You cannot just read the first 5 pages or so that are an ‘executive summary’, and think you know what this law is about. The executive summary is NOT what will become the law. It is the actual Articles themselves that become law, the Summary has no legal standing and is just tacked on as an aid to the public and legislators, it is supposed to give background information and set the proposed legislation in context so people know what is going on and why.

The problem with this law has always been that the Summary says lots of nice fluffy things about preserving biodiversity, simplifying legislation, making things easier etc – things we all would love – but the Articles of the law actually do completely the opposite. And the Summary is not what becomes the law.

For example, the Summary of drafts 1, 2 & 3 talked about making things easier for ‘Amateur’ varieties. But the entire class of Amateur vegetables – which we have spent 5 years working with DEFRA to register – was actually abolished entirely in the Articles right from the start. Yet the Summary , and press releases based on it, still talked about how it will help preserve Amateur varieties! The Summary is completely bogus. Do not base your views of the law on it!

So, be warned. By all means, read it yourself. But you have the ignore the Summary as that is not the Law, and does not reflect what is in the Law.¬†As you might suspect, this move is the “final solution” of Monsanto, DuPont and other seed-domination corporations who have long admitted their goal is the complete domination of all seeds and crops grown on the planet. By criminalizing the private growing of vegetables — thereby turning gardeners into criminals — EU bureaucrats can finally hand over full control of the food supply to powerful corporations like Monsanto.

Most heirloom seeds to be criminalized

Nearly all varieties of heirloom vegetable seeds will be criminalized under this proposed EU law. This means the act of saving seeds from one generation to the next — a cornerstone of sustainable living — will become¬†a criminal act.

In addition, as Gabel explains, this law “…effectively kills off development of home-garden seeds in the EU.”

This is the ultimate wish of all governments, of course: To criminalize any act of self-reliance and make the population completely dependent on monopolistic corporations for their very survival. This is true both in the USA and the EU. This is what governments do: They seize control, one sector at a time, year after year, until you are living as nothing more than a total slave under a globalist dictatorial regime.

An online petition has already been started on this issue and has garnered nearly 25,000 signatures so far.

NOAH’S ARK and 240 other organizations from 40 European countries have also initiated an “open letter” appealing to Brussels bureaucrats to stop the insanity.¬†Click here for a translated version of their petition.

I saw this coming

By the way, I am on the record¬†predicting this exact scenario. Read¬†Chapter Three of my fiction book, “Freedom Chronicles 2026.”¬†(Read it FREE, online.) It depicts a seed smuggler living in a time when seeds are criminalized and people earn a living as professional seed smugglers.

In my book, a woman uses a specially-crafted breast prosthesis to smuggle seeds to “underground gardeners” in full defiance of laws crafted by Monsanto. A vast underground network of grassroots gardeners and scientists manage to put together a “seed weapon” to destroy GMOs and take back the food supply from evil corporations.

Mark my words: Seeds are about to become contraband. Anyone who grows their own food is about to be targeted as a criminal. The governments of the world, conspiring with corporations like Monsanto, do not want any individual to be able to grow their own food.

This is about¬†total domination of the food supply¬†and the criminalizing of gardeners. And this is what big government always does after centralizing sufficient power. All governments inherently seek total control over the lives of everyone, and if you don’t set boundaries and limits for government (i.e. the Bill of Rights), it eventually runs roughshod over all freedoms and liberties, including the freedom to grow your own food.

    Most nations have passed laws under Agenda 21 that make this the “logical” next step. Still, it is shocking to see it actually happening.

  • Mavrick

    Who in their right mind thinks of this shit. I used to like science fiction because it could really be strange but real life is proving to be 10 times as strange and screwed up as SciFi could ever be.

    I know its all about the money and control but seriously what kind of fucked up individual actually sits around and says … hey I got an idea! And then goes throught the process of actually trying to implement it. They have to be seriously messed up in the head.

    • Jean

      There are evil people.
      We have allowed those evil people to be coddled instead of killing them on the spot.
      Can there be any other outcome than an evil-based society?

      We shall all be terrorists as a matter of course, soon enough – even those who would obey.

      I made an analogy to 1984 meets Brave New World meets the chinese Emperor’s “Fodbidden City.”
      Looks like I didn’t go far enough. We MUST resist this control, VIOLENTLY, there is no alternative. There are more of us than them, and “we” are their gardeners, workers, maids, butlers, shareholders, even neighbors.
      Destroy them all. End it.
      It will come back in a century or two regardless, but NOW is the time for our generation to take care of business. The costs are bad if we resist; they are WORSE if we do not. We will be property, subject to experimentation, to make us “better” humans, done “for our own good.” Nazis did that, it was called Eugencis and Euthanasia. It did not end, merely changed locations and methods. And a Nazi doctor never thought in terms of directly changing someone’s DNA. Imagine being able to inject Aryan DNA into Jew Animals! You’d AUTOMATICALLY improve the vile Jew sub-humans…

      Maybe white DNA into blacks? Or vice-cersa, the order doesn’t much matter.
      How about we make it so that the Dear Leaders are worshipped because of chemical triggers (pheromones), while the rest of us proles are hated, even by ourselves – for the EXACT same reason? As far as that goes – Transhumanism is better, you can change out artificial parts and correct those shortcomings. If it’s been genetically engineered and encoded, there will be NO WAY to ever change things – the proles will be stupid organic machines, only able to do what they’re told. The Luminaries would be the only ones truly capable of independent thought. Control of food, medicine, manufacturing, water, seeds, power, fuel, and laws and law enforcement… It’s NOT so crazy any more.

      The question is, WHY HASN’T THERE BEEN VIOLENCE ALREADY?

      Makes one rethink the whole “Mark of the Beast” thing. RFID? Tattoos? Engineered DNA? Implants? Lots of options. All possible already – fromt he professors genengineering crops, to those testing RFID and Facial Recognition systems, to the one who had a chip implanted in his arm so the computer could track him and take care of things for him – turning on lights, greeting him in the morning, etc.

      Make no msitake, if it not resisted when there is access to weapons and alternate food and water, and before the surveillance state is complete: IT CANNOT HAPPEN when the weapons are removed, or inoperable (smartgun technology), and TPTB control the food and water, and the law enrforcers can track your car, your face, your movements on city streets (cameras) or in the wilderness (drones).

      These people ARE messed up in the head – they believe these are good ideas, and that THEY are the only ones who know what’s best for you. More than YOU, for that matter. Can’t smoke, that mgiht kill you. Can’t get natural medicines (peyote, marijuana), that is evil! [there's no PROFIT in it...] Can’t get proper foods, that fat and cholesterol will KILL you – but the tasteless (herbivore) grain-based diet that causes Diabetes? THAT is A-OK! No moral problems of eating poor defenseless animals, and you won’t get diabetes until you’re past your prime anyway, and we don’t need you any more… Or if we do, we have medical means for you to stay alive, as long as you keep working for US…

      It’s not a conspiracy in the normal sense, either – not planned. Just capitalizing on short-term profits at long-term expense. Short term profits: Camera comapnies and security companies make a bundle, right now. Long term: Their own employees are arrested for minor infractions. But those employees are replaceable with other, newer people, anyway, so who cares? And the newer ones cost less…

      Cars? Fuel efficiency will NEVER be high enough. the objective is to limit travel, which limits exchange of ideas.
      Like censoring the net, controlling “trade data” secrets, like… Machine specifics for printing a gun. Or the details of military aircraft. [Note, I'd prefer to keep NATIONAL secrets safe, but since my NATION is being dissolved and invaded... Why bother? USA has become Amerikastan. So better to assist it along to death, and rebuild on the ashes, using the Constitution and Declaration as the basis of the new country - Again called America.]

      As long as we suffer these beasts to live, we are at risk. Until we eliminate the genome, the threat will re-emerge.
      So we need to keep pruning that tree of the poisonous fruit. And since the fruit is from Human Nature, we need checks that are ingrained by Nurture. Religion, for example (looking at Judaeo-Christian systems; Taosim; Wicca; Buddhism; and old warrior traditions like Chivalry and Budo.) Can’t make laws to keep people in check, the people must deicde to keep THEMSELVES in check. It’s an internal locus of control. External locus of control breeds sycophants (mob) and politicians (pimps and whores).

      Why do intelligent people – like my father, who is a rocket scientist, literally – REFUSE to see it? Simon and Garfunkel wrote about it decades ago, and things have ONLY GOTTEN WORSE. Bradbury wrote of it; Asimov; Wells; Aristotle; Plato; etc. It’s not a new thing even at the time of ancient Greece!

      The only conclusion is that most humans are, in fact, HERD animals. SHEEPLE. And intelligence isn’t the factor. The rest of us just need to step up and lead, and MAKE IT COUNT. We have to (I’m sorry to put it this way) adopt the means of our enemy to command a large enough populace to ensure the Enemy is impotent when on our territory. Deadfalls, IEDs, guerilla tactics, EMPs used regularly, disruption of food and sleep, any thing and every thing to kill them all. Even some “sympathizers” on conttract to provide things like alcohol – sending WOOD alcohol, mind – or, like our beloved government did, sneding POISONED alcohol for consumption. Visible local crops, all GMO but fed on poisons. Can’t eat the food without getting poisoned. The water carries dysentary. Mini-drones inject mercury, or roundup, or bleach. Drones spray our aerosol fluids, which are then lit by those same suicide drones. FAE or at least terror.

      Going to be long and bloody, and there won’t be a “continental US” left afterwards, we’ll need to re-assemble those who want to join again – a Third Continental Congress.

      But is there any way to win at a rigged game?
      Only way I know is, don’t play.

      So make them play OUR Game instead. That game is total anihilation. Means are described above. Timeframe is probably 50 years. It will be a hydra for a while, kill one head, two more pop up. Eventually, the wounds will be cauterized, and we will still be standing. Then we’ll deal with the external threats again…

      Bear in mind: IF WE HAD DEALT APPROPRIATELY WITH THE INTERNAL THREATS AT THE TIME – We wouldn’t be here, now.
      So put on your big girl panties and DEAL WITH IT: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE.Question is what are you going to DO about it?

    • Jean

      Me dumbass, didn’t answer part of your comment. too busy proselytizing. ;-)
      These people don’t sit around asking, “How can we control the masses?”
      These people sit around asking, “How can we monetize our product? How can we profit? How do we limit competition? How can we market this better? What are the obstacles to a captive market?”
      Short-term profits from legal, marketing, corporate, across ecnomic sectors, too.
      They don’t WANT to “control” you (except, maybe marketing.) That’s just the side effect of the profit-bearing enterprises.

      So, I want to get your money, and I’m “honest”, so I want to get you to BUY a product – say a car. I arrange a few details in my mind, like cost, number of cars I need to sell, costs, overhead, how to best get the parts made and assembled, and what sort of capital I have.
      I make a decent car. So does Hank up the street. So we find ways to make our car “better” than the alternatives. Hank markets to the Rich, upper class, with a luxury model. I market to the lower-class groups, offering a reliable, cheap, efficient machine.
      Hank sells a few cars now and then, and makes $100,000 profit. I sell 20,000 cars but make $100,000 profit. We BOTH want to sell more cars…
      Hank starts looking at how to get into the economy class market; I look into how to make a Luxury brand.

      And then the Government gets involved, because I can make a more efficient engine than Hank’s team – so I “lobby” for laws requiring high efficiency engines. Hank has to invest in tools and research for the new engine requirements… So he’s less effective at researching the economy market.

      Now, instead of the simplistic concepts above – let’s make a stew.
      I have to eat, drink, sleep, get shelter from the rain, I need power, there are evil people who would take all I have, etc, etc, etc. Normal life expenses.
      But Monsanto wants to maximize profits, as does GM, as does by real estate broker, as does my bank, as does the local hospital, as does the local municipality, and the county, and the state, and the national government…
      How does one make things work then?

      We need to balance out our objectives and make cost-based decisions. So too do the corporations. That includes government. Chaos is bad for business. But no change is also bad, there’s no innovation. OTOH… CONTROL the innovation, stifle competition (chaos bad), and maximize profits (GOOD!)

      Bear in mind, too, that the implementation is divorced from actual legislation. Now the right hand doesn’t know what the left testicle is doing. In fact, the hand doesn’t know there IS a testicle… Nor does it care. The hand has its goodies; the testicle pursues ITS goodies; sooner or later, the body comes apart from being pulled in all these different directions. That’s where WE are. Three or four huge bodies pulling us around like a chew-toy in a dog crum. Monsanto, GM, US .Gov, UN, EU, Russia, Microsoft, Toyota, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, SAP, Oracle, IBM, Honda, APA, AMA, DEA, FDA, BATFE, EPA, Congress, POTUS, SCOTUS, communism, socialism, feminism, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, ILGWU, AFL-CIO, Teamsters, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSN, Yahoo, Google, etc, etc, etc. All vying for our attention and money (resources both).

      All against competition. All against independent innovation. All workign to maximize profits by any means necessary. Most, if not all, WAY too big to alter in any meaningful way, since even if 50,000 of us boycott, the effect will be minimal, and the costs passed on to the non-boycott buyers…

      Hence the reason for the vitriolic “scorched earth” policy. It’s become a machine, far more than the “military-Industrial complex” Eisenhower warned of. It will consume us to satiate itself. We need to either kill the beasts, or be the food.

      But insanity is the only sane solution to an insane situation. We deal with them, set the clock back, give the world a little more time.
