The globalists who control the United States are furious that Mexico has decided to no longer import any more genetically modified (GMO) corn from the U.S. or anywhere else.
Following two-and-a-half months of failed negotiations, U.S. overlords are calling for the creation of a dispute settlement panel under a North American trade deal to try to strongarm Mexico into accepting the toxic corn.
In case you missed it, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) decreed back in 2020 that all GMO corn, as well as glyphosate (Roundup) herbicide, is to be completely phased out of his country by January 2024.
(Related: As promised, Mexico is, in fact, banning all imports of toxic GMO corn from the United States.)
Because the U.S. economy relies heavily on fake GMO food, this delivered a huge blow to American agriculture. It was believed by some that AMLO was just bluffing, but he is dead serious about ridding Mexico of toxic GMO corn and toxic glyphosate herbicide, even if the U.S. chooses to throw a hissy fit about it.
Backed by agricultural, consumer, environmental, public health, and worker groups, AMLO’s decision is wildly popular among We the People. It is not so popular among U.S. globalists, though, who are angrily trying to force Mexico back in line with its dictates.
Back in June, the Biden administration requested 75 days of formal negotiations to try to convince AMLO that GMO corn is good for Mexico – because it is good for the globalists’ pocketbooks, and nothing more.
Those talks officially ended last Wednesday when U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai confirmed that, in accordance with globalist demands, a new panel will be formed under the United States – Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Through the USMCA dispute panel, we seek to resolve our concerns and help ensure consumers can continue to access safe and affordable food and agricultural products,” Tai announced.
“It is critical that Mexico eliminate its USMCA-inconsistent biotechnology measures so that American farmers can continue to access the Mexican market and use innovative tools to respond to climate and food security challenges.”
In other words, do as we say, Mexico – or else. The imperialistic nature of the U.S.’s demands against Mexico are typical, but are increasingly unwelcomed and unacceptable to a growing populist movement in both countries that no longer wants to eat poisonous GMOs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The Mexican Ministry of Economy seems to be more aligned with We the People than our own representatives in Washington, D.C., having shot back at Tai’s declaration with a rejection of her threat.
“Mexico does not agree with the position of the United States,” the Ministry shot back, adding that it “is prepared to defend the Mexican position before this international panel and demonstrate: 1) that the national regulation is consistent with the commitments signed in the treaty; and 2) that the challenged measures do not have commercial effects.”
Coming to the defense of Mexico’s position is the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), which affirmed that Mexico is under no obligation to abide by the U.S.’s demanding threats.
“U.S. agribusiness exporters, the biotech industry, and their allies in Congress are pushing this case, intent on compelling Mexico to accept U.S. exports without debate,” said Karen Hansen-Kuhn, IATP’s director of trade and international strategies. “It is an assault on Mexico’s food sovereignty.”
“Trade rules should provide a forum to protect and advance rights, rather than block them,” she continued.
The U.S. is increasingly alone in thinking that GMOs are safe and constitute actual food. Learn more at Frankenfoood.news.
