Patent på livet? - Möt bioteknikföretagens nya världsordning...

Bioteknikpirater och livet som en intellektuell egendom. Företag som Monsanto vill med hjälp av USA:s regering kontrollera bl.a. matproduktionen på en global skala. De kommer sannolikt också att lyckas om inte fler människor intresserar sig för vad som händer inom patentområdet och inom de hemliga avtal som just nu förhandlas typ, TPP...

Open Seeds: Biopiracy and the Patenting of Life

Publicerad den 15 februari 2012 av GlobalResearchTV
As the world begins to digest the implications of intellectual property for online censorship, another IP issue threatens an even more fundamental part of our daily lives: our food supply. Backed by legal precedent and armed with seemingly inexhaustible lobbying funds, a handful of multinationals are attempting to use patents on life itself to monopolize the biosphere.

Find out more about the process of patenting life and what it means for the food supply on GRTV Backgrounder.

  1. --Monsanto, the TPP and Global Food Dominance--

    “Control oil and you control nations,” said US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. “Control food and you control the people.”

    Global food control has nearly been achieved, by reducing seed diversity with GMO (genetically modified) seeds that are distributed by only a few transnational corporations. But this agenda has been implemented at grave cost to our health; and if the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) passes, control over not just our food but our health, our environment and our financial system will be in the hands of transnational corporations.

    Profits Before Populations

    Genetic engineering has made proprietary control possible over the seeds on which the world’s food supply depends. “Terminator” genes enable the production of sterile seeds, using a synthetic chemical catalyst appropriately called “Traitor” to induce seed sterility. Farmers must therefore buy seeds from their patent owners year after year. To cover these costs, food prices are raised; but the harm is far greater than to our pocketbooks.[...]



  2. -Canada approves production of GM salmon eggs on commercial scale-

    Canada has given the go-ahead to commercial production of genetically modified salmon eggs, bringing the world's first GM food animal closer to supermarkets and dinner tables.

    In a decision buried in routine business in the Canada Gazette, Environment Canada said it had granted a US biotechnology firm, AquaBounty Technologies Inc, permission to export up to 100,000 GM fish eggs a year from a hatchery in Prince Edward Island to a site high in the Panamanian rainforest.

    The decision marked the first time any government had given the go-ahead to commercial scale production involving a GM food animal.

    The move clears the way for AquaBounty to scale up production of the salmon at its sites in PEI and Panama in anticipation of eventual approval by American authorities.

    The Food and Drug Administration is expected to render a decision in the near future on the sale of GM salmon, and in due course some 30 other species of GM fish currently under development, campaigners and industry figures said.
