"A new report  by GRAIN and Focus on the Global South has found that new legislation in Iraq has been carefully put in place by the US that
prevents farmers from saving their seeds and effectively hands over the seed market to transnational corporations. This is a disastrous turn of events
for Iraqi farmers, biodiversity and the country's food security. While political sovereignty remains an illusion, food sovereignty for the Iraqi
people has been made near impossible by these new regulations. "
New laws passed in Iraq make it ILLEGAL for Iraqi farmers to use their own seeds. They have to purchase them from transnational agriculture
How popular do you think such a law would be in the United States? Control of the seed stock is the essential step to control of agriculture.
This is just part of the 'Year Zero' policy of rebuilding Iraq by selling it off to the highest bidders.
