Expanding its bioweaponry program, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) committed $21 million to Canadian biotech firm Medicago, to build a 90,000 sq ft vaccine facility in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The facility will produce 10 million vaccine doses a month, using tobacco plants.
Those promoting genetic engineering have claimed it is the cutting edge of science. Those in opposition are treated as ill-informed. African scientists who reject genetic engineering are treated as a needy, backward underclass and “starved for science.” Vaccines are considered the greatest gift of modern medicine and those opposed are said to be putting others’ lives at risk.
But whatever high ground the biotech and vaccine industries have claimed for themselves scientifically is crumbling. Both paradigms are beginning to collapse.
Video interview with Theresa Forcades, MD, September 23, 2009
Spanish with English subtitles, in six parts, 55 mins.
A Report by Alicia Ninou and Judith Abadias
Theresa Forcades I Vila has a degree in medicine from the University of Barcelona; specializing in internal medicine at New York State University; a PhD in public health from the University of Barcelona; and a degree in theology from Harvard University. After working for many years in the medical field, she later became a Benedictine Nun.
Dr. Forcades reflects on the history, and gives scientific data on, A/H1N1, listing serious irregularities related to the swine flu. She explains the social and political consequences of the declaration of a pandemic, while counseling folks to remain calm. She calls for an urgent activation of all legal mechanisms to prevent mandatory vaccination, and the participation of all citizens in this matter.
In 2005, the Inter-Governmental Working Groups (IGWG) of member states, a United Nations group, created what was to become the International Health Regulations, 2005. This initial plan was revised in 2006, 2007 and again this year 2009.
The World Health Organization determined in 2005 it has the authority to dissolve sovereign governments and take control should there be a “pandemic.” This applies to any country signed onto WHO….which of course we are. In June, WHO raised this “mild” week-long flu to level 6 pandemic.
