GMOs, Seed Wars and Knowledge Wars

The only way corporations can push GMO seeds on farmers is by destroying alternatives.

31 October 2012 - TruthOut

The only reason crops have been genetically engineered is to take patents on seeds, and collect royalties. If during colonialism the concept of Terra Nullius, empty land, allowed the takeover of land and territories by the colonizer, a new concept of Bio Nullius, empty life, is being used to claim “intellectual property rights” on seeds, biodiversity and life forms. But life is not empty. Seeds are not an invention. They embody millions of years of biological evolution, and thousands of years of cultural evolution and farmers breeding....  http://truth-out.org/news/item/12456-gmos-seed-wars-and-knowledge-wars

Seed Monopolies and GMOs... The Biotech Cartel End Game ... the point of no return

Seed Monopolies and GMOs... The Biotech Cartel End Game ... the point of no return | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
When most of us think of Monsanto, we think of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, as...

But what if the potential health risks of GMOs were actually not the biggest concern when it comes to Monsanto and the handful of other mega-corporations that now dominate the seed industry?...

Unfortunately, these questions are not part of some crazed, anti-corporate conspiracy theory. They are the questions that we should be asking based on the current realities on the ground in farm country. And it’s important that we answer them quickly if we are to have any chance to avert the potential disaster that is looming on the horizon, a disaster perhaps best described as Monsanto’s point of no return.

Reclaiming the seed: The First Link In The Food Chain

Reclaiming the seed: The First Link In The Food Chain | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

August 20, 2012 THE ECOLOGIST by Vandana Shiva

Besides displacing and destroying diversity, patented GMO seeds are also undermining seed sovereignty. Across the world, new seed laws are being introduced which enforce compulsory registration of seed, thus making it impossible for small farmers to grow their own diversity, and forcing them into dependency on giant seed corporations. Corporations are also patenting climate resilient seeds evolved by farmers, thus robbing farmers of using their own seeds and knowledge for climate adaptation.

Another threat to seed and seed sovereignty is genetic contamination of seed. India has lost its cotton seeds because of contamination from Bt. Cotton. Canada has lost its canola seed because of contamination from Roundup Ready canola. Mexico has lost its corn because of contamination from GMO Corn.... http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/1547185/reclaiming_the_seed.html
