Does one go towards a natural replacement of the pesticides? Not with the glyphosate

Saturday, May 18, of the thousands of people met in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux or Lille in order to denounce the activities of Bayer Monsanto and other giants of agrochemical following the many complaints engaged against Monsanto in the world.

The biodiversity was in the center of the concern of the demonstrators. They asked the replacement of the pesticides by healthier and natural manures following the judgments by the American justice of the glyphosate which proved to be cancerogenic. The soughtafter goal is the prohibition of the hazardous substances for the human ones and health because the financial sanctions cannot be sufficient;  the states must be invested as soon as possible.

But what the glyphosate? It is about a systemic foliar herbicide total, i.e. nonselective, absorptive by the sheets and with generalized action. This weeding more is sold with the world (800 000 tons a year) thanks to its ease of use and its moderate price. Marketed under the Roundup brand by Monsanto since 1974, its patent passed in the public domain in 2000. in the hexagon, it was the herbicide more sold between 2008 and 2013 are 9000 tons used a year (approximately 7500 for an agricultural use and 1500 for a use in garden). However, he was recognized, according to the report produced following a study of about fifteen epidemiologists resulting from research institutes international, that the glyphosate, just like 2 insecticides, the terbuphos and the deltamethrine, were responsible for one plus a large number of risks of lymphomas not hodgkiniens in the farmers, of advantage touched that the rest of the population by these rare leukemias. This research gathered data gathering more than 315,000 farmers on more than 10 years in France, Norway and in the United States. Health and the biodiversity must be preserved harmfulness of the pesticides.

It takes approximately 2 years so that the chemical group Bayer finalizes in June 2018, the purchase for 63 billion euros of Monsanto which loses its name following mistrust and the bad one felt population. This operation makes it possible to the Group Bayer to hold 20% of the global market (seeds and plant health). But it proves that the transaction as juicy as is not envisaged because of many disappointments and legal affairs are turned over against Bayer Monsanto and his herbicide which since 2015 (after about forty years without difficulties), is classified by an agency of WHO, like cancerogenic probable for the man.

Following these disappointments, 13,400 requests and lawsuit resounding with the United States where the Group was condemned to pour fines record (including 2 billion dollars to a couple of pensioners reached of a lymphoma nonhodgkinien) because of the cancerogenic character of RoundUp, herbicide to the glyphosate of Monsanto, the course of the title of Bayer at the Stock Exchange fell of 40%.  At the time of last the A G, held last Friday, the shareholders dismissed to 55.5% the actions of the directory. In addition, the financial sanctions with regard to the firms are not dissuasive and one thinks of going towards prohibition of these hazardous substances.

In France, a national campaign, launched on May 3rd by the collective of citizens and citizens From the Ariège, revealed on May 29th that after a screening test of the glyphosate organized on the urine of 20 people, there was glyphosate in their urines beyond the standard for the drinking water (0.1 nanogramme per liter), a varying result of 0.28 minimum with 2.44 nanogrammes per liter. In the Tarn, 67 people will carry felt sorry for against any person implied in the distribution and the diffusion in the probably carcinogenic environment of molecules of glyphosate.

In the country, 71 departments joined the countryside and 48 of them began the tests in order to prevent that the generations to come are not affected by what they eat. According to the study of the American biologist Michael Skinner, an exposure to the glyphosate could involve persistent genetic modifications on several generations.

After the revelation of an illegal pointing for the group of Monsanto agrochemicals of hundreds of personalities in particular relating to their position on the glyphosate, number of them decided to carry felt sorry for, one raises among them several researchers and leaders of the research institutes of the INRA and CNRS.

Political side, France intends to leave the glyphosate but the expiry seems pushed back, waited until the Ecophyto plan was to make it possible to leave there in 2018;  the pressures of the lobbys seem to slow down the commission of Brussels and the EU not counting the firms which try to intimidate the scientists. Moreover, the use of the glyphosate increases profitability but made disappear family agriculture and the farms following the pressures from large distribution on the prices, with the dumping of the imports, the absence of alternative mature and assistance to the transition towards a new agriculture.

Although the effectiveness is not still proven of it completely effective, there exist products which could replace the glyphosate of which Clairland containing pelargonic acid, just like Bayer Natria Garden and Solabiol.

The words of Edouard Philippe, are the same ones as those pronounced by Emmanuel Macron in front of the municipal officials, in the Elysée

The 101e Congress of the mayors of France was concluded Thursday in Paris with a taste from unfinished. A few hours after Emmanuel Macron in the Elysée, the Prime Minister remained on the line fixed by the president of the Republic, without convincing the elected officials.

Visavis the challenges, one has common responsibility, it is to be together. If one is not together, then one opens a formidable boulevard, not with populist, but with the demagogues.

In front of the 4,000 elected officials present, the Prime Minister affirmed the will of the Government of a dialogue of good quality. For him, the mandate of mayor honours those which exert it because it rests on a confidence expressed closest to the citizens.

Otherwise, concerning the limitation of the rise in the administrative expenditure at 1.2% per 322 communes, departments and regions which pushed these last with the boycott of the last National conference of the territories last July Edouard Philippe ensures to note that this objective very correctly seems to function. As at the time of the last conference of the cities organized by the metropolises of Urban France, it has in same time promised to be with the listening of the questions of reprocessing.

In addition, following the example of Emmanuel Macron, the Prime Minister committed himself reexamining the operation of the total equipment of operation (DGF) what caused the applause of the room:
Let us hear the remarks. The fact is that the 42 criteria are so complex that they offer an incomprehensible result. It belongs to you to make proposals.

In an official statement published a little earlier in the course of the day, the MFA had asked Emmanuel Macron and the government to begin in a true negotiation with the communes to restore confidence between the State and the elected officials.

We wish the installation of a work method with a precise timetable which allows the State and the MFA to commit itself in a sincere negotiation in order to restoring confidence, association had indicated. There is urgency to join again the dialogue in a true negotiation.
During the exchange with the mayors, Emmanuel Macron said himself completely ready to open the building site of the reform of the rules of the DGF, favorable to entrust to the elected officials the management of the territorial public function and to improve with the margin the law Our (new territorial organization of the Republic).

That does not want to say to retrogress, but () one can improve of the things, he underlined. As for the suppression of the tax of dwelling by 2020, the commitment was held, he added, without giving more precise details on the compensation of the suppression of this tax, traditional source of receipts for the communes.

Edouard Philippe did not express himself on other proposals of the MFA: development of an annual finance law of the communities, the creation of funds of smoothing financed by the State in favour as of communes whose equipments decreased as well as the adjustment of the contribution of the communal block to the reduction of the national debt in proportion to its share in the debt.

For Edouard Philippe, the mayors have as a savage will to make live and develop the territories of France. The method of the Government is the bendhand. The objective is to give to each territory the possibility of developing, at its rhythm, its measurement, according to its ambitions, of its weaknesses, its needs.

On the suppression of the tax of dwelling, the objective is simple: to make so that as of the next summer, [the mayors know] how will die out the tax of dwelling and how we will compensate for it, he affirmed.

He announced that to spring 2019, the Government will present the principles of this extinctioncompensation. And in the neighbourhoods of the mid-April, the Council of Ministers will examine a government bill devoted to the reform of the local tax system.

The Prime Minister was not in conquered ground, and had little good news well to attract the sympathy of the municipal officials present
