Did you know that farmers are being sued for growing food? Did you know that a company can purchase the genetic “patent” for a seed that has existed for thousands of years? Did you know that one company could eventually “own” all of the seeds in the world and that you could be arrested for planting them in your own backyard?
Multinational corporations are genetically engineering “impotent” seeds, ones that are incapable of reproduction –altering, no, stealing the life-giving energy from food that is our birthright, our gift from mother nature.
