Seeds – the basis of farming, the basis of our civilisation – we must eat. When the world is playing fossil-fuel politics with peoples’ lives in Libya, Syria, Iran, Iraq and elsewhere it almost seems irrelevant to start arguing about seeds. Farmers they are always griping, most farmers vote right-wing, their humanitarian stances are often weak. Yet these farmers are being completely exploited by the 1% BigFood, and our governments because they are puppets simply accept this. Seeds of Freedom is a 30-minute documentary produced by the Gaia Foundation that brings home the point if we allow it.
I have previously written about GM – some are tagged, mostly in this blog. I also like whistleblowers, they have been there done that and come out the other side. So I like this set of articles and reports – haven’t read them all but I see part of the function of this blog as providing sources for me and for the reader(s) – OK reader. So here are some GM details from erstwhile genetic engineers. They are from Earth Open Source.
If I want to know more about GM the links are here.
