Letters from the near future 6
Thank you for your warm welcome as I address your Constitutional Convention. I am honored to stand before such dedicated citizens of all backgrounds who truly wish to take back that which the Oligarchs took from us through their systematic abrogation of our rights and freedoms as human beings which has brought us great suffering as a people. We have fought a long and hard battle these past years and in the true spirit of our forefathers still struggle for a more perfect union in spirit. And the greatest suffering apart from our economic fall has been what has been done to our environment which was part of that. Therefore, I have been asked to come here today as an environmental emissary to propose a resolution to this convention regarding the rights of citizens in regards to food and water. These are basic rights that should never be infringed upon by Corporate entities disguising themselves as caring humans. I then stand here to say that I fully support the rescission of the Citizen’s United as a first step to regaining our freedom and our voices.
As we all know, the GMO famine that took place two years ago that caused our crops to fail due to excessive environmental stresses that were not tested properly by Monsanto and other Biotech companies that had these organisms placed into our environment without our consent have made us all realize that a monoculture world cannot provide for our sustenance. Since that time as you have all been on the front lines fighting the physical battle, I and others have been fighting the moral battle.
I then stand here before you today with some good news that came to me yesterday from the Citizen’s Court as a result of that battle: due to the circumstances that led to the breakdown of the genetic organisms in our food crops, the distinction of substantial equivalence has been rendered null and void and all Monsanto’s assets are to be frozen with restitution paid to all American farmers with the rest of the monies going towards supporting permaculture and organics programs throughout all our regions (through our Johnny Appleseed brigades) to help rebuild our soil. All such transgenic plants that may exist in the ground shall be pulled out as a result of this verdict. The seeds we were allotted from the seed vault can now be used and saved to provide a future of healthy food. Other companies as well will be meeting the same fate, as they too used deception and greed as their motivation rather than sound science. I am asking that all who wish to help rebuild our food system to be truly sustainable approach me after this meeting. We will feed our people and we will do so naturally and with care for our soil, our water, and the health of our citizens. Through this, our country will be stronger, cleaner and healthier.
Therefore, on the heels of that good news, I hereby enter my resolution:
1: The rights of farmers and citizens to food sovereignty and water access shall not be infringed upon. Preserving biodiversity, water, food and the biosphere shall be principles we live by in order to rebuild and preserve not only our land and water, but the world. Only through environmental balance can we adequately secure the rights of food and water for all citizens. These rights shall not be denied and no citizen shall be denied that which gives them sustenance.
2: Establishment of a major reforestation effort to replant our Pacific forests lost in the Great Fires with strict stipulations as to the balance of what can be used for our needs. This also includes a CO2 soil sequestration program that will reward farmers for sequestering CO2 in the soil through cover crops and other natural means. This also includes declaring water a human right and nulling all privatization of water systems in our regions. Water is a public trust and shall remain so. In the years since the Ogallala Aquifer dried up as well, our ability to grow food has been greatly diminished as our Mid-West turned into a dust bowl. Through this declaration we hope to now salvage the rivers and Great Lakes that remain and use them in a more conservative way to provide for our needs rather than their profit at our expense. Of course, there is more to be done on this in speaking with all representatives from all regions, but we do agree on this premise and therefor foresee our ability to once again share water equitably.
And as we have seen in the past few years, tipping points have been reached regarding climate that make such stipulations mandatory for our continued survival. These forests will provide buffers against storms, sustenance for those species left, food, and root systems to preserve water. Other regions may see more difficulty in planting as the East now struggles through the intense changes brought about by ecocide of 2010 that slowed the ocean current loop along with thermal expansion of our oceans, and of course, our South which will not see planting now that it is uninhabited due to the Great Ecocide Migration. However, we will be working on ways to rebuild this area once the toxicity levels decline.
3: And finally, this resolution as a beginning calls for the growing of Hemp by all farmers as a way to rebuild our environment, agriculture and to provide for our building, clothing, food, medicines, and as a necessary step to bringing us back to rebuilding our economy. There will be more on that forthcoming.
We have seen great destruction and still struggle with the fallout from it, but through these small measures as a start, I do believe we can begin the process of working to take back and sustain our freedom, our lives, our environmental balance and our country’s future.
The Future is Ours.
