GM Seeds and the Militarization of Food: An Interview with Vandana Shiva

Please take a few minutes out of your hectic schedules to read this post. Genetic Use Restriction Technology (GURT) is a threat to the very sanctity of life within the biosphere.  Seeds designed to die after one generation may serve corporate ledgers, however they serve only to inhibit the evolutionary processes underlying species progression.  These “suicide seeds” are quite possibly the most insidious threat confronting all life in the 21st Century. The economic stranglehold that this technology places upon the small farmer also merits examination. Personally, I suggest not consuming food derived from seeds that contain the deliberate insertion of a cancerous gene.

Indian physicist and philosopher, activist and ecofeminist pioneer Vandana Shiva talks with Truthout in Hawaii about GMO, the militarization of agriculture, the politics of occupation and the primacy of biodiversity.

Foot soldiers in the battle against corporate globalization and the privatization of commons like land and water have long been aware of Indian physicist and philosopher Dr. Vandana Shiva. An ecofeminist pioneer, today she is best known as an outspoken opponent of the GMOs (genetically modified organisms) being developed by transnational biotechnology and chemical corporations like Monsanto and Dow.

Shiva disputes the notion that patenting genes and controlling the world’s seeds, and thus much of its food supply, will better serve humanity. Biotech companies claim their genetically engineered (GE) crops are able to withstand threats from insects, disease, and man-made pesticides and herbicides while making a serious contribution to feeding an increasingly hungry world.
