I know this looks like something out of science fiction but it surely is not. The senate is currently acting to pass a bill that would make you an outlaw if you gardened or saved seeds. http://www.naturalnews.com/030418_Food_Safety_Modernization_Act_seeds.html
for those of you who dont know about monsanto, they are the cause of genetic modification in foods, which maybe you will think isnt so bad.. BUT, there are deeper reasons they have genetically modified food. One reason is because they now can patent seeds, which they are doing. In doing so, they have successfully sued local farmers out of business for having their non-gmo seeds pollinated by monsantos patented seeds. In other words, if 2 farms are split by a street, one gmo, and the wind blows the pollen from one onto the other, monsanto has the legal right to sue them for stealing their genes. And as you can see in this article, this bill will help them to control the world of seeds.
“This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep — the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.
This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a “smuggler”) for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer’s market.”
This is our capatalist industrys way of destroying the local food movement, the organic food movement, and the grow it yourself and barter in your own community movement. These are all serious threats to industry, so they are finding ways that laws can prevent it. This is why it is so important to consciously choose where we are putting our money. To give these corporations our dollar is to not give these local food movement organizations our dollar. Every dollar is a vote towards our future.
I Highly reccomend watching this beautiful video by Vandana Shiva, who represents the people and is an inspired visionary with a clear purpose. Click Here to view it. It starts there and its a 3 part series. Each part gets more insightful and incredible. She shares profound insight which will help inform us to make better choices for ourselves and our families.
This time in history is the frontline of freedom. The revolution now is unseen, but brewing in these movements! I commend you for being brave and knowing what is right in your heart. For that is the highest power but also the highest threat to companies like monsanto.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and being a person in humanity willing to look at these issues.
Please free to share your thoughts and your feelings about these issues, it is important that we come together and build conscious community, and support each other through these trying times.
