Online-Protestaktion zum Gentechnikgesetz

Umweltinstitut München e.V. - Newsletter vom 31. Oktober 2007

Themen: - Online-Protestaktion zum Gentechnikgesetz: Umweltinstitut München antwortet der CDU/CSU-Bundestagsfraktion - Fragen und Antworten zu Agro-Kraftstoffen ("Biosprit")

Am 8. November soll das Gentechnikgesetz erstmals im Bundestag beraten werden, nachts zwischen 3.50 Uhr und 4.20 Uhr! Offenbar versucht die Regierung, das Gesetz bei Nacht und Nebel voran zu treiben. An die Teilnehmer unserer Protestaktion gegen eine Aushöhlung des Gentechnikgesetzes versendet die CDU/CSU-Bundestagsfraktion gleichlautende Antwortschreiben. Darin bedient sie sich einer Reihe falscher und irreführender Argumente. Zahlreiche Teilnehmer der Protestaktion haben uns gebeten, das Schreiben zu beantworten. Die Antwort des Umweltinstitut München finden Sie auf unserer Aktionsseite unter //www.umweltinstitut.org/gentechnik/antwort-an-cdu-529.html Falls Sie sich noch nicht an der Protestaktion beteiligt haben, besteht dort noch die Möglichkeit, vorformulierte Protest-Mails an die Bundestagsfraktionen von SPD und CDU/CSU zu senden. Machen Sie sich für gentechnikfreie Landwirtschaft und Lebensmittel stark! //www.umweltinstitut.org/genprotest



Mogelpackung "Biosprit"

Kann mit so genanntem "Biosprit" die Abhängigkeit vom Erdöl verringert, der Ausstoß von Treibhausgasen reduziert und das Weltklima gerettet werden? Nachdem der Einsatz von Benzin oder Diesel aus Raps, Mais oder anderen Pflanzen bislang unkritisch gefordert und gefördert wurde, zeigen sich jetzt die Schattenseiten. Die Rodung von Regenwäldern für Monokulturen von Soja, Zuckerrohr und Ölpalmen, die als Sprit-Pflanzen genutzt werden, ist schon jetzt weitverbreitete Realität. Artensterben, massiver Pestizideinsatz, Wasserverknappung und Bodenerosion sind die Folge. Der Treibhauseffekt wird durch die Agro-Kraftstoffe zudem keineswegs gestoppt. Brandrodung, Trockenlegung von Sümpfen und industrieller Anbau sorgen im Gegenteil dafür, dass Emissionen in wichtigen Erzeugerländern rasant steigen. Informationen über Agro-Kraftstoffe finden Sie jetzt hier: //www.umweltinstitut.org/agrosprit

Why Did We Invade Iraq Anyway?

Michael Schwartz, writing for TomDispath.com, says: "Why is occupying Iraq so 'vital' to those 'national security interests' of ours? None of this makes sense if you don't have the patience to drill a little beneath the surface and into the past; if you don't take into account that, as former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz once put it, Iraq 'floats on a sea of oil'; and if you don't consider the decades-long US campaign to control, in some fashion, Middle East energy reservoirs. If not, then you can't understand the incredible tenaciousness with which George W. Bush and his top officials have pursued their Iraqi dreams or why - now that those dreams are clearly so many nightmares - even the Democrats can't give up the ghost."

Iraq, Afghan Vets at Risk for Suicides

Kimberly Hefling, reporting for The Associated Press, writes: "Mary Gallagher did not get a knock at the door from a military chaplain with news of her Marine husband's death in a faraway place. Instead, the Iraq war veteran committed suicide eight months after returning home. She is left wondering why."

Mukasey Refuses to Offer Opinion on Waterboarding

Dan Eggen reports for The Washington Post, "Attorney general nominee Michael B. Mukasey told Senate Democrats yesterday that a kind of simulated drowning known as waterboarding is 'repugnant to me,' but he said he does not know whether the interrogation tactic violates US laws against torture."

Leahy "Very Concerned" With Mukasey's Answer on Waterboarding

Alexander Bolton, reporting for The Hill, writes: "Michael Mukasey attempted to advance his stalled nomination for attorney general Tuesday by giving Congress a written statement discussing the legality of waterboarding, an interrogation technique that simulates drowning. Mukasey submitted a four-page legalistic discussion that did not give Democrats what they were demanding: a succinct statement on whether waterboarding is akin to torture."

Mast profits battle rages

By Gerran Grimshaw

CONTROVERSY over Selby's telecommunications mast rumbles on following a decision that will leave the district council with a much bigger share of the profits.

North Yorkshire Police and Selby District Council currently take profits from allowing third parties - such as mobile phone companies - to use the facility.

PARENTS TO FIGHT ON OVER MAST AT SCHOOL

09:00 - 31 October 2007

Parents say they will keep fighting to remove a mobile phone mast from outside a school.

The pledge comes after Notts County Council apparently ignored calls to remove the mast close to Lowe's Wong Junior and Infant Schools.

Campaigners have collected 1,600 names on a protest petition, which they have handed in to the county council. But the petition looks set to be thrown out at a full council meeting tomorrow.

Fires of the feds: How the government has destroyed forests

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by William L. Anderson

10/25/07

As the wildfires in California and elsewhere burn forests, homes, and businesses, and as a Katrina-sized evacuation continues, environmentalists and the media are making new claims: these disasters are the results of global warming. According to a recent ‘60 Minutes’ broadcast and new claims on CNN, global warming is causing these newest disasters, and if we wish to have fewer fires in the future, we need to ‘change our lifestyles’ now...

People who live in glass houses

LewRockwell.Com
by Michael S. Rozeff

10/31/07

There are only two ways to go in the Middle East: get out or get in deeper. Getting out is wiser. That will reduce the threats. Getting out requires that America reverse course. This course was set in 1787 but the ship of state didn’t set its full sails until 1898 and the Spanish-American War. Since then, the ship has become a Titanic speeding along as it heads for its iceberg. Changing course is the only way to avoid the collision and sinking of the ship. The alternative to getting out is to get in deeper, such as by attacking Iran and Syria. Bush, Cheney, and Rice have opted for this course. The U.S. Congress has for years taken an anti-Iran stance. What will be the result of getting in deeper? Under the best of circumstances, the U.S. will be involved in occupations that will last a very long time. The U.S. stayed for 50 years in the Philippines. It has been in Korea and other places around the world for 50-60 years and counting. Bush has said that the war on terror will take 100 years...

The 'Orwellian' Bush administration

The Bush administration continues to insist that it alone must decide whether a judge is allowed to hear a case that might harm national security. When Judge Harry Pregerson, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, listened to Deputy Solicitor General Gregory Garre telling him that, he responded: "The bottom line here is the government declares something is a state secret, and that's the end of it. The king can do no wrong".

US accused of torture

THE United States's willingness to resort to harsh interrogation techniques in its so-called war on terror undermined human rights and the international ban on torture, a United Nations spokesman says.

Giuliani's Foreign Policy Aadviser Sounds Like A Madman

In an interview in Saturday's Daily Telegraph, one of Rudy Giuliani's leading foreign policy advisers-- Norman Podhoretz --prattles on about we must bomb Iran. Talking about military strikes, including cruise missiles and "bunker busters", this neoncon man sounds delusional.

Israeli general suggests to use Azerbaijan's airbases in strike against Iran

Brigadier General Oded Tira observed, "President Bush lacks the political power to attack Iran. As an American strike in Iran is essential for our existence, we must help him pave the way by lobbying the Democratic Party (which is conducting itself foolishly) and US newspaper editors. We need to do this in order to turn the Iranian issue to a bipartisan one and unrelated to the Iraq failure."

Schäuble verteidigt Fingerabdrücke auf neuem Reisepass

Bundesinnenminister Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) verteidigt die Aufnahme weiterer biometrischer Merkmale in den neuen elektronischen Reisepass. Es solle nicht mehr gelingen, mit gefälschten Reisedokumenten in den EU-Schengenraum einzureisen, sagte Schäuble am 30. Oktober in Berlin zur Umstellung auf das neue Passdokument. Ab Donnerstag, den 1. November, müssen Antragssteller eines Reisepasses zusätzlich zu einem Foto zwei Fingerabdrücke abgeben, die auf einem Funkchip gespeichert werden. Datenschützer und Computerexperten hatten unter anderem bemängelt, dass die sensiblen Daten auf dem Pass von Kriminellen missbraucht werden könnten.

//www.ngo-online.de/ganze_nachricht.php?H=N&Nr=16868



Datenschützer und Opposition halten Pass mit Fingerabdruck für unnötig

Vor der offiziellen Einführung der Reisepässe mit gespeicherten Fingerabdrücken am 1. November haben Datenschützer und Oppositionspolitiker erneut schwere Bedenken angemeldet. Insbesondere die Sicherheit der sensiblen Daten auf dem "ePass" der zweiten Generation sei keine zehn Jahre gewährleistet. Kritisiert wurde am 31. Oktober auch, dass sich Antragssteller eines Reisepasses nun erkennungsdienstlich behandeln lassen müssten. Der Datenschutzbeauftragte Peter Schaar sagte, die Einführung des Fingerabdruckes sei aus seiner Sicht unnötig. Man frage sich, "was soll das Ganze?"

Datenschutz wird zum Placebo

1. November 2007

Zu der seit heute geltenden neuen Reisepassverordnung erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Die seit heute geltenden Bestimmungen sind Ausdruck eines Paradigmenwechsels in der Sicherheitspolitik des Landes. Den für einen Rechtsstaat zentralen Grundsatz der Unschuldsvermutung gibt es nicht mehr, jeder ist qua Geburt ein potentieller Täter. War die Abnahme von Fingerabdrücken früher eine Maßnahme, um Tatverdächtige zu identifizieren, wird diese Identifizierung heute auf alle Inhaber eines Reisepasses ausgedehnt und vielleicht morgen schon auf alle Bürgerinnen und Bürger. Entsprechende Vermutungen nach einem "Testlauf" liegen nahe. Dann ist es nur noch ein kleiner Schritt zu einer Zentraldatei für Fingerabdrücke der Bevölkerung oder konsequenter Weise gleich für den genetischen Fingerabdruck bei Geburt. Wer sich heute hinter den EU-Vorgaben für diesen Schritt verstecken will, sei daran erinnert, dass es der SPD-Innenminister Schily war, der erst den Anstoß für diese Verordnung gab. Der Umgang des Staates mit den persönlichen Daten seiner Bürgerinnen und Bürger wird immer ungenierter. Das Rechts auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung wird nach und nach ausgehöhlt. Datenschutz wird zum Placebo.
