Attack against the Alliance for Transgenics by Eco-Extremist Circle of Terrorism & Sabotage (Mexico)

Alianza Pro Transgenicos (Alliance for Transgenics) was the victim of two recent bombing attempts. One bomb exploded from a package delivered to one of the alliance’s offices, wounding the organization’s Vice President, engineer Mario Berlanga, and an associate. The other package bomb delivered a day later was not
opened and handed over to Mexican authorities, which are investigating.
No one was seriously injured.

Translated from Por la Anarquia:

Biotechnology, genetic engineering, bioinformatics, economic botany,
agronomy, among other sciences, develop improvements in the research,
production and implementation of technological innovations, supposedly
friendly for the environment; “minimizing the damage” caused to nature,
“reducing pollution” and proposing processes with “less environmental
impact.”
The final purpose of these sciences, using all methods and
techniques at their disposal, is to artificialize natural biological
processes.

Genetically modifying organisms to improve crop quality, in terms of the
land, agriculture being an important part of soil devastation,
destroying wilderness for macro level cultivation, preventing the
slightest sign of regeneration of the natural environment, ensuring good
harvests for at least as long as the lands health lasts.

In line is the restoration of ecosystems, through biotechnology,
apparently out of ecological concerns, creating new options which are
the least harmful and contribute to reducing pollution; securing, this
way, time and resources for the inexorable advance of scientific and
technological progress.

An example of this is the biofuel made from seaweed, this innovation was
faced with a shocking problem. Since the algae developed in freshwater,
its production did not have the necessary sustainability, because of the
water needed. For which genetic engineering had the solution: the
genetic modification of these algae, resulting in the development and
growth of marine algae in salt water and even sewage.

[…] The ocean water is simply a non-limited resource on this planet
[…] assured Stephen Mayfield, director of the San Diego Center for
Algae Biotechnology, of UC San Diego; who also told Scientific American:
“Nothing is going to stop this.” [1]

With biotechnology’s proposal, the problems that afflict humanity are to
be resolved, citing innovative examples are: The golden rice,
genetically modified to increase its nutritional value. The genetically
modified gluten free wheat, suitable for coeliacs. Genetically modified
purple tomatoes, claiming to prevent cancers. Genetically modified corn,
which will be used as a vaccine against Hepatitis B. [2]

The alleged resolution to current problems (poverty, hunger, disease,
etc…), with scientific and technological improvements, ensure the
subjection of a society blindly hopeful of a future better life; whose
consequences are not clear even to the scientific elite.

Pitching – poorly – persuasion campaigns such as:

“Nature says yes to GMO’s: The butterfly that wanted to be a wasp; wrote
(ridiculously) por la Neta de tu Planeta [for the truth about your
planet].”
[3]

“Reasons to consume GM food and feel proud of it (10 Reasons to eat GMOs
and feel grateful for it).”
[4]

“What most people don’t know but they should is that practically every
food they buy in the store for consumption by humans is genetically
modified food. There are no wild seedless watermelons. There’s no wild
cows, there’s no long stem roses growing in the wild – even though we
don’t eat roses. You list all the fruit and all the vegetables and ask
yourself is there a wild counterpart to this? If there is it’s not as
large it’s not as sweet it’s not as juicy and it has way more seeds in
it.
We have systemically genetically modified all the foods, the vegetables,
and animals that we have eaten ever since we cultivated. It’s called
artificial selection. That’s how we genetically modify. Now we can do it
in a lab and all of a sudden you’re gonna complain? If you’re the
complainer type go back and eat the apples that grow in the wild.”

Nail deGrasse Tyson [5]

Taking advantage of the minimal opposition and indifference of the blind
masses, they’re taking over not only the future of the food they will
ingest, but the course of natural environments.

For our part, all that is left to say is that not only nature will
suffer the attacks against it, but, harm and damage will extend to those
directly responsible, whether they are organizations, businesses,
institutions or individuals in particular.

In this case, associations seeking to enshroud and protect themselves,
concealing – with a friendly and pathetic disguise – nefarious
interests, as do La Alianza Pro Transgénicos, presided by Rubén
Chávez Villagrán, composed of 31 members, being led by Monsanto,
Syngenta, Agrobio Mexico, among others.

Thus said, we claim the attacks (during the third week of November)
through parcel bombs and incendiary devices directed to the Consejo
Nacional Agropecuario
, in the colonia Navarte, and the
Protección de Cultivo, Ciencia y Tecnología company, in colonia
Nonoalco Mixcoac, both in the Delegación Benito Juárez of México City.
Both those companies are active members of La Alianza Pro
Transgénicos
. With this attack we are fully aware that we wont stop
their campaign and efforts to artificialize wild nature, but as we’ve
commented already above, not only nature will suffer the harm and
damage, these will extend to those directly responsible.

sarcastic-clarification note.

We live in caves, no electricity, no phones, no INTERNET; with no
communication beyond smoke signals. Passively witnessing how
artificiality eats away any trace of wild nature, manipulates it,
modifies it, and in a colorful and bright tone, presents it to total
disposition, quietly awaiting the acceptance of the human population,
with no fuss nor setback any. Placid before any spurious biological
change, entrusting the course of our lives to strangers.

This would be a minor inconsistency, right?

Less than posting claims, attacks and threats through internet, which
worry and are criticized the viewer community, netizens, readers, etc
… Because of course, the critique of modern scientific and
technological progress prevents the use of these against them, that
would be cheating, scallywags!

We couldn’t care less about criticisms of our alleged “inconsistency”
not only are we not bothered, but they have us mock the mediocre
obedience and complicity, in defending and protecting the scientific and
technological boom, dispensing more than just their lives… leaving
only a trail of what was once wild nature.
