Look, its gotten way beyond the boycott stage.Just think of the seed banks that monsanto et al have started......
They plan to put a starngle hold on the very sustenance that mother earth gives to everyone who would put in the effort to reap her bounty.
It is the right of no one to patent or withhold,monopolise or genetically alter the natural seeds of this planet.
This is a humanitarian issue.It strikes across ALL boundaries, political,racial, religious, whatever...
It is not within any goverments power or mandate to licence,promote,encourage or otherwise facilitate anyone in tampering with the basic sources of
Nr ois it within the scope of goverments mandate to restrict anyone from producing his or her own home made foodstuffs of any sort.Provided one is not
selling it commercially.
I fail to understand when the goverment thought it had the right to patent,and control natures free gift to all.....
Yet life and death to all of us as well.........Who ever said anybody had the right to tinker with our food chain in such a radical and unpredictable
manner?With the evidence stacking up, it apears to me that
Monsanto and other genetic seed firms,are making an obvious, and concerted bid to control the future food sources of the entire globe.This situation
is already out of hand in my opinion,what can be done to apply the brakes to this runaway train fast?
Boycotts can be waited out....people tend to forget their direction over shorter spans of time (at least that is my personal observation)Without some
form of reeforcement...to put emotional emphasis on it, as well as to stop what can only be termed ill advised, if not insane rush to field these
potentially toxic varietiesfrom interbreeding with our natural seedstocks and polluting the entire, or a good portion thereof, natural seeds
There is too great a risk of collateral damage to our environment.We stand to lose any gains through other unexpected secondary results.
IE. A cotton plant which produces a beetle pesticide may also kill off the population of pollinators too, like the bees and birds, and other good
The rush to collect on the research through implementation of ones GM crop has led to corruption before.....
The goverment, and industry seem to share executives who slide back and forth presiding over aprovals of dubious corporate schemes.
Without a mass movement to stop the madness,these small gestures serve to underscore the seriousness of the situation.
Perhaps when more of the general populace reacts the wieght of mere rhetoric will be sufficient.till then,
what other way is there?
