2006 – Monsanto Company, the world leader in Genetically Modified foods, now owns most of the world’s seed.

They (Monsanto) are seeking a patent on the actual pig. It’s an astounding and dangerous claim.

The world has allowed this company to basically own life!  If you have not heard of the Monsanto Corporation, it would be worth your time to research what this company is doing to the world’s food sources and what they have planned.

Zimbabwe, once one of the most prosperous nations in Africa, now has the lowest life expectancy and highest inflation rate in the world. Life has become an everyday struggle for survival. The supermarkets in Bulawayo are all empty. According to the shopkeeper, the last time they had bread was “a month ago”. Filming secretly undercover, journalist Ginny Stein captures the desperation everywhere. “There is no water. Nothing, just nothing”, laments ‘Tony’. “Children are hungry, everyone is hungry. Our government is a monster”. Even if there were things in the shops, most people couldn’t afford them. A teacher’s monthly salary now buys the equivalent of one McDonald’s family meal. Malnutrition is taking its toll on people’s health. “Up to 75% of the people coming in have diarrhea and vomiting”, states Dr Thandazani. The fear is that these problems will only get worse. In July, the government forced businesses to half their prices. Now it’s proposing to nationalize 51% of all white-owned businesses. “The economy must be in the hands of Zimbabweans”, states Ambassador Khaya Moyo. But unsurprisingly, manufacturers and retailers feel they’re being made new enemies of the state.

    This was filmed in 2007 ~ it is disgusting that an organisation professing to be unbiased and supporting the side of fairness can publish it now. It makes everything else you do suspect!

  • Robby T, the year this was filmed is irrelevant, the fact is the documentary is valid as the situation on the ground has not changed. The channel here is to highlight what is available and allow people to view them from one place and make up their own minds to do more research. The organisation of the UN, UNHCR, NATO, NGO’s, African Union’s etc…is who you should be criticising having done nothing with the assistance they have access to, the money forwarded to them for humanitarian purposes and to mitigate the military excess of Mugabe.

    This is not correct just go to google and google images of Zimbabwe and you will get a better picture up todate than this outdated vengeful version yes they have made lots of mistakes but Zimbabwe is actally a work in progress and there is lot of positives.
