The Face of Frankenstein's Monster
Engineering Biotechnology (GE, GM, GMOs) evades Evolution's safeguards
by injecting genes of one species into a totally unrelated species,
something impossible in Nature.
GM evades Evolution's safeguards, and may therefore give rise to PATHOGENS

Genetic Engineering is also ideal for developing horrific biological

Thus the formula the reader might keep in mind:

Ownership Rights in the crops of victimised farmers.This formula spells the

onto glutted Indian markets, pushing GM crops, insisting that Patents
on Life-Forms be accepted so farmers must sign contracts with GM

and What To Do
Human beings and Nature, as we have known them, cannot
survive in a GMO-Frankenstein world.
The nightmare technology of Genetic Engineering Biotechnology, and its
incestuous Patents on Life-Forms, must be OUTLAWED.
How To Do It?
There is only one way to overcome this extremely powerful,
ruthless Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis.
is to conduct grassroots Public Education Campaigns to educate and
politically activate the General Public, university / college students

The environmental field especially is riddled with wealthy, prestigious, deceptive
organisations adept at dilutng and derailing environmental
causes, GM in particular.

over a long period of time, in my view a very slick and dangerous FOE
of environmentalism, originally created by polluting Corporations to
deal with the growing environmental movement.

When they talk about being 'practical' and seeking 'Coexistence'
with GM, let a red
flag go up.
Nothing short of OUTLAWING GENETIC ENGINEERING and PATENTS ON
