offsite link The Large Hadron Collider and the War in Ukraine Thu Feb 02, 2023 09:00 | Noah Carl
No papers have been published at the Large Hadron Collider since last March because scientists object to co-authorship with Russian institutes and individuals. This virtue-signalling does nothing to help Ukraine.

Nicola Sturgeon?s sudden fall from grace over her mad trans policies reminds us how flimsy woke ideology really is. With a little pressure, it could all collapse very suddenly.

A summary of the most interesting stories in the past 24 hours that challenge the prevailing orthodoxy about the virus and the vaccines, the ?climate emergency? and the supposed moral defects of Western civilisation.

Pfizer has denied doing gain-of-function research but also said it was engineering the virus to express variant spike proteins. Now Dr. Paul Offit has implied that such work is indeed gain-of-function research.

offsite link How the Unvaccinated Got It Right Wed Feb 01, 2023 13:00 | Robin Koerner
Whatever the risks associated with a Covid infection on the one hand, and the 'vaccine' on the other, the vaccination policy enabled massive human rights violations of the 'unvaccinated', endorsed by the 'vaccinated'.

Should Co. Longford become a GMO-free zone?

category longford | environment | event notice author Monday February 19, 2007 00:32author by Michael O'Callaghan - GM-free Ireland Network Report this post to the editors

Film screening & community discussion

Wednesday 21 February
7.30pm - 10pm
Longford Public Library

The GM-free Ireland Network and the Longford Environmental Alliance cordially invite you to a screening of the film The Future of Food, which examines the negative impacts of genetically modified (GM) food and farming. The film will be followed by a community discussion about the campaign to declare Co. Longford a GMO-free zone, facilitated by Michael O'Callaghan (Co-ordinator, GM-free Ireland Network) and John Brennan (farmer and chair of the Western Organic Network).

Patented GM seeds and crops can never be recalled after their release and would contaminate our ecosystem and food chain in perpetuity. Contaminated famers may be sued for patent infringement and lose ownership of their seeds and crops. Our Government is determined to legalise their cultivation this year, even though there is no market for GM food in Europe. This policy would have negative legal and economic impacts on our farm, food and tourist sectors – and on the health of present and future generations – for thousands of years to come. Under EU law, stakeholders who will be affected by such a policy have a legal right to participate in its formulation.

This film screening and discusion present an opportunity for you to inform yourself about this issue, and find out how to stand up for your democratic legal right to protect Co. Longford from the GMO invasion.

Who should attend:

TDs, County and Town Councillors, journalists, landowners, conventional and organic farmers, foresters, food producers, food retailers, restaurateurs, hoteliers, tourism operators, golf course owners, fishermen, anglers, gardeners, health professionals, students and consumers.

Admission free. All are welcome.
Please be on time at 7.30 pm.
