Physicist, ecologist and world-renowned author Vandana Shiva closed the inaugural Organicology Conference in Portland, Oregon on February 28th with her speech: The Future of Food and Seed: Justice, Sustainability and Peace in the 21st Century. This hour-long video gives a brief history of the seed wars that have been ongoing since the late 1980s and argues for seed freedom and protection from unregulated biotechnology. Instead of regulating natural seeds and organic farming, states should regulate the monopolists.
"The creation of seed monopolies is based on the simultaneous deregulation of seed corporations, including biosafety and seed deregulation, and super-regulation of farmers seeds and varieties." Nov. 15, 2008
"We will not obey a law that makes it illegal for us to perform our highest ecological duty on earth, which is to save seeds for the future."
