5 reviews for Seeds & Freedom

    This compelling broadcast should be repeated often as Vandana Shiva’s research and clarion call of warning about Monsanto is vital if we don’t want our food to be further distorted.

    Right, Ghandi did not refer to “the other 9/11”.
    From pg-3 of Vandana’s outstandingly important and valid talk:
    “…Gandhi said, We are one citizenry. This is discrimination. We will not be divided by race. And he led the satyagraha, and he named it satyagraha that day. It was September the 11th. We call it “the other September 11,” “the other 9/11,” the 9/11 not of fear but of freedom…”
    I hope author “What?” took to heart her spoken 6,347 words so masterfully delivered ! !
    Our “earth Gaia” is being so cruelty mistreated. Work for a change.

    This excellent program outlines the specific atrocities and intended monopoly bt Monsanto of food production in developing countries including forcing seed banks to be discontinued, taking over scientific authorship of favorable articles, and (as we know too well in the US) spreading lies and false information on GMO crops. I’ve known Monsanto was evil but the information in this program, by a woman who seems to have no agenda other than saving her countries right to produce healthy food, was shocking.

    I gained a substantial amount of information about India and its agricultural nature. However, this lesson is applicable world wide. A sincere and moving explanation in simple terms of where we have been, where we are, and where we must not go in agriculture. At times a bit lengthy, but still captivating!

    As a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil around 1970 I experimented with hybrid rice developed by the International Rice Institute. While the hybrid seed produced well, it was not appropriate for two reasons: 1) it required heavy use of nitrogen fertilizers, which were not readily available, and 2) the seeds could not be saved from one year to the next since they were hybrid.
    I found non-hybrid seeds that produced well and could be saved from year to year. I fear the damage that will be done by Monsanto and other companies that seek to prohibit farmers from saving seeds. In fact, it is beyond unethical to patent seed varieties. — Cliff
