Excerpts from Campaign for Food Safety News #18
On March 11, leading scientists and activists from over a dozen nations
(Europe, North America, Japan, Malaysia, Bangladesh, India) meeting at a
"Biodevastation" conference in India vowed to "bring down" Monsanto and the
other biotechnology transnationals and build a global mass movement for
sustainable and organic agriculture.
Ronnie Cummins summed up the battle that civil society faces at a
well-attended press event in New Delhi: "We stand on the edge of a Biotech
Century where a runaway technology wielded by Monsanto and other
transnationals threaten food security and biodiversity in both the North
and the South." The India "Biodevastation 2" conference was organized by
Dr. Vandana Shiva, as a follow-up to last year's "Biodevastation 1"
conference in St. Louis (see Food Bytes # 11).
