China buying up land all over Africa.Too much hegemony?

Michelle Connor (@ConnorMconnor): Too much. So much for our sovereignty we might as well have Chinese passports. No wonder our economy is dead. MADE IN CHINA!

Obvious Tsoru: They must not allowed bcoz they’re doing nothing for our country.

Should the Chinese be allowed to mine in Zimbabwe’s conservation areas?

AWP Network! (@AfricWomenPower): NO! NO! NO!

Takudzwa Leonard Mathende: Proper mining accompanied by reclamation of land not looting. There is need to evaluate the value of the underlying minerals against the value of the frogs, lizards, birds etc or the revenue they bring ie through tourism.

Michelle Connor (@ConnorMconnor): No they shouldn’t. They are killing and promoting poaching. We do not fly the Chinese flag here. Enuf.

Is the ban on GMO flawed science?

Mark Peer: No. The corporations producing GMO seeds are not telling the truth. Bt toxin is implanted in the DNA of each seed and becomes perfectly dispersed throughout every cell in the plant. Bt has been proven to damage animals reproductive systems, liver, kidney and changes the intestinal gut organisms.

By introducing GMO crops into your agriculture you will be put on a never ending treadmill that requires more and more chemical to combat superweeds and superbugs that will appear and prolonged use of chemical requiring GMO crops.

Nature has provided us with ample tools to sustain agriculture by use of natural selection. Education in seed selection methods will substantially improve crops yields while reducing the need to use outside sources for seeds. Groups like ECHO have the expertise and will to help people and farmers who desire sustainable agriculture.
