- Mar 27, 2006Do you thing it's fault of US or other country or by the people of the former countries, yes it's consumers fault we have make consumers aware of all these and automatically producers can change their views.
this is IT era and we have to utilize to communicate allover the world and make a consumer movement to find the solution. The is also unsustainable and so i emphasize this. Any natural force of universe and nature and the human caused environmental defects will put an end to IT.
A consumer movement is the need of the hour.

I think that organic farming is not in anyway a solution for the
present ecological and human problems, is actually just a way to
produce more money. Big organic farms use a lot of oil based energy
and organic matter from other places, so in wich way is it
sustainable???, the only way that an agricultural method can be
sustainable, and can be called natural it´s doing nothing and leting
nature to do the work. When harvest is done in the garden, after
working a lot and using a lot of intellect, people get pride by its
size and shape, but that sensation of being proud is just because
thinking that who produced that its the self, but when instead is
naturally grown and is harvested, inmediatly we can feel an
enormous joy because we undersdtand that nature is our mother, and
she is who is giving us that gift.The real problem in the world is
because we think that our intellect will sustain us despite the
destruction that we are doing to nature.
Other terrible problem is the false value that everyone give to the
material things. These are some of the problems that are making this
world a hell. Thats what is happening here in Ecuador; for centuries
people lived just of their small lands growing corn, beens, squash,
pumpkin, potaotoes, quinua, and a lot of wild vegetables and fruits;
but with the arrival of technologies 30 years ago to "improve"
agriculture all the native species of grains, vegetables and fruits
dissapear, as the ancient methods to grow them .Now the situation is
worst ,we are close to play with fire because the goverment wants to
make a kind of comercial interchange of products and services with
the US, so now it will be free the use of GMO´s seeds, now the poor
peasents will be slaves of big chemical companies. Bioterrorism will
be aproved because all the traditional knoledge about using the
medicinal herbs and biodiversity will be robbed of the native people
with the owner rights and intellectual property.Our society will be
polarized, a few wealthy, and a lot of poor people.The worst thing
is that nobody knows what is gonna happen with this trade; Peru and
Colombia already sign this trade. All this monopolization created by
the Us is because their natural resources as water, oil, clean air,
biodiversity are dissapearing, so for not falling down they need new
places to destroy.How are the small peasants gonna compete with
their few products against products that the US export with subcides
as weat, corn, rice, soybeans. There has been like two weeks of
strikes against the sign of this trade, but the people who is
manifesting might not achieve anything, allways the ambition and the
power win over the dreams of the people of a equal and better
I am just writing this so all of the people of the group who are in
the US know whats going on, and whats doing the goverment, we might
not be able to do anything, maybe the only thing its to live a
simple and natural life while the world it´s wildly running towards
