• defenders of the seed



    Seed, Bija in Sanskrit, Shido in Japanese, Zhangzi in Chinese, Semi in Italian, Semilla in Spanish, Semence in French, Der Saat in German, is the source of life and the first link in the food chain. Control over seed means a control over our lives, our food and our freedom.

    Corporations like Monsanto have created a seed emergency, a seed emergency through patents on seeds, seed monopolies, biopiracy genetic engineering and creation of non renewable sterile seeds. Seed monopolies have pushed 250,000 farmers to commit suicide in India. After contaminating farmer’s seeds and crops, Monsanto sues farmers “for stealing their gene”, putting the polluter pays principle on its head, and making it the polluter gets paid principle.

    The multidimensional emergency created by patents on seeds and GMOs needs a global collective response. Join the Global campaign on Seed Freedom to stop the corporate hijack of seed and with it, the hijack of our freedom and our future.
