Venezuela Rejects the Production, Distribution, and Importation of GM Seeds

by Christina Sarich, Natural Society:

The country of Venezuela, through its National Assembly, has approved a law that will ban GMOs and prohibit seed-patenting.

Its aim is to promote sustainable agriculture and real food security. Grassroots efforts for years has finally culminated in the passing of a law that prohibits Monsanto, Bayer, Dow, Syngenta, and others from controlling the seed supply and poisoning the people.

The new law also proposes:

  • The creation of a national seed institution which will audit crops, and actively pursue those who violate the GMO ban.
  • Peasant seed will be protected. It will not be hybridized through biotechnology, nor patented. Neither will it be threatened with cross-contamination by GM seed.
  • Natural cross-breeding will be allowed, as it has been used for centuries, and seed saving and sharing should also be promoted.

Furthermore, the SEED LAW proposal was developed by a partnership between the communal spokespersons and the legislative and executive branches of government. This example of the “People as Legislator” represents the organized expression of popular power in its push back against competing stealth legislation that would open the door to transgenic seeds and the kind of legislation we see made in America, where corporate groups make shady deals behind closed doors (such as with the DARK Act and the Trans Pacific Partnership.)

    Any question the paid-for-by-multinationals Congressional and Industrial Military Complex zeroes in on EVERY single country banning GMOs and getting nowhere with it but increasingly into debt and on an increasingly faster spiral of destruction?

    Well… who will win that battle? Countries fighting for life-and-death and the return to a more natural and healthier system outside of Genetically Engineered food

    OR… Money at all cost, especially at the cost of life in general? Keep silent if you must; the world is moving away from everything US.

    Clinton “went, we saw, he died”. She hasn’t seen anything yet.

    And while you’re at it, any question why the dollar is faring so poorly that it is moribund?

    Nothing happens randomly. There is a lot of truth to sowing and reaping.
