Invasion of the Seed Snatchers

Heather Gray tells how the corporate criminals of Cargill and Monsanto invaded Iraq right along with US and British troops, forcing their evil agenda of genetically-modified organisms and patented seeds on Iraq, just as they have here in the US.

BTW, to me this is the real dark side of biodiesel--not that it isn't efficient, but that it is currently being made from agribusiness-controlled soybeans, most of them GMO's. It doesn't have to be, and it shouldn't be, but we should realize that it probably is contributing to the frankencrops takeover of the planet. Conservation, and withholding as much financial and political support as possible from agribusiness and all of the other corporate criminals should really be first principles for those of us who would really like to see a better world. Drive less. Buy less. Buy local. Buy organic. Don't eat meat. It's the only planet we've got.
