School of the Americas opposition spreading in Latin America!

14 Countries have movements to shut down School of the Americas. The recent maximum prison sentences in federal court in Georgia (for sweet people who challenge the legitimacy of SOA by crossing a line)
demonstrate denial in action. The US so dislikes talking about the badness of these folks.

WikiLeaks: US targets EU over GM crops

US embassy cable recommends drawing up list of countries for 'retaliation' over opposition to genetic modification

by John Vidal, environment editor guardian.co.uk, 3 January 2011

The US embassy in Paris wanted to penalise the EU after France moved to ban a Monsanto GM corn variety.
The US embassy in Paris advised Washington to start a military-style trade war against any European Union country which opposed genetically modified (GM) crops, newly released WikiLeaks cables show.

In response to moves by France to ban a Monsanto GM corn variety in late 2007, the ambassador, Craig Stapleton, a friend and business partner of former US president George Bush, asked Washington to penalise the EU and particularly countries which did not support the use of GM crops.
