SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, JUNE 22-27, 2001
CONFRONTING THE BIOTECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY ON ITS OWN TURF.
The same corporations that brought us DDT, PCBs and Agent Orange are now promising to feed the world's hungry with "frankenfoods" and put "designer babies" into our schools... DON'T believe the hype.
From June 24th to 27th in San Diego CA, leaders of multinational biotech & pharmaceutical corporations, industry scientists and lawyers, bureaucrats and marketers, will meet at the Biotechnology Industry Organization Conference (BIO 2001). Under the guise of "progress," the biotech juggernaut is furthering its drive for profits through the privatization of our collective genetic heritage.
The corporate colonization of life itself is the newest, most insidious form of "globalization." It is destroying sustainable agriculture and impoverishing farmers worldwide, stealing the genetic legacy of indigenous peoples, foisting untested, unregulated "frankenfoods" upon an unwitting public, and profoundly threatening
biodiversity. Redesigning nature for profit, the Biotech Industry is busy genetically engineering fish, insects and trees, privatizing the human genome, and toying with human cloning and "designer" babies.
We call on all rabble rousers of conscience to join us in one of the Biotech Industry's backyard-- San Diego. This is the fifth year that people from around the world will protest the Biotech Industry at the "BIO" meeting. San Diego wants-- and needs-- you to raise your voice so that Biotech knows it ain't even safe at "home"!!!
If you can't be in San Diego-- we call for simultaneous actions and statements of solidarity in communities around the world for BIOJUSTICE! The possibilities are endless. From teach-ins to voluntary GE food labeling brigades, from demonstrations against the gene giants to organic potlucks, from direct actions to leafleting, we call for global grassroots organizing against the genetic engineering.
