There is a new regulation in the making as I type that will ban, yes, BAN, all old and rare varieties of seeds.
Not only ban these seeds of biodiversity and extreme importance to the health of the land and Nature, but will, in effect, threaten the exchange of seeds as I have been doing over recent months.
So, the EU wants us all to bow down before Monsanto?
Well, I for one, will not!
The EU should be banning this monster called Monsanto and all the seeds of death it produces, not our seed heritage, nurtured and passed onto us by our grandparents!
“Monsanto’s GMO seed is neither ecological nor economic or socially sustainable. It is eco–cide and genocide.” ~ Dr Vandana Shiva
“The courage to say no to unjust law…the law that says a farmer cannot save seed!” ~ Dr Vandana Shiva
There was another great Indian leader called Gandhi and what he had to say resonates very much with me today…and I shall heed his advice!
As Gandhi taught us, the most important assets we have are self governance, self sustaining agriculture and ability to speak truth to power!
I will not comply!
I have also uploaded a video about this…
