Published on Tuesday December 1st, 2020 by Independent Science News: Messengers of Gates’ Agenda: How the Cornell Alliance for Science Spreads Disinformation on behalf of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was written by Heather Day/AGRAWatch, Director of the Community Alliance for Global Justice.
Synopsis: The Cornell Alliance for Science is an organisation that operates out of Cornell University. As an institution, the Alliance is misnamed, however. It is not an Alliance and it owes its allegiance not to Cornell but to its founder and main funder, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Moreover, as shown in a new report published by the Seattle-based Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ), neither does the Alliance promote ‘science’. Rather, it promotes agribusiness, its associated technologies, and its principal agendas. It does so largely by virtue of extended trainings in public relations, given at Cornell, to its ‘Global Leadership Fellows’. These are individuals recruited from target nations and who then return to their homelands to act as paid mouthpieces for their sponsors.
