Activist San Diego Shows “Genetic Roulette” Film (tags)

Activist San Diego screened “Genetic Roulette” Saturday, September 22 at the Joyce Beers Community Center. The film is directed by Jeffrey M. Smith and is based on his book of the same title, an exposé of the health risks of genetically modified organisms (GMO's) in the food supply. The showing was co-sponsored with the Yes on 37 campaign, which supports Proposition 37 on the November ballot, that would require genetically modified foods sold in California to be labeled as such.

GMO Biotech Lobby Gets Foot in Harper's Editorial Door?! (tags)

Is Harper's magazine editorial staff jumping onto the biotechnology bandwagon, along with mainstream neoliberal and neoconservative politicians looking for quick-fix "solutions" to our petroleum based food crisis?

"Stop the Biofuel-Madness!" (tags)

"The high oil price and the food crisis threaten the existence of over a hundred million people." (Walden Bello) "People in poor countries must starve so the rich can continue driving their cars." Growing plants for biofuels is a crime against humanity.

Hunger, GMOs and Speculation (tags)

Like many other countries, Kenya provided its own staple foods until the 1980s. Today the country imports 80% of its food. To buy up the entire grain harvest of the US, only $120 billion is needed-a small amount for speculators on currency market

World Bank and IMF Policies Caused Food Crisis (tags)

The IMF changed its economic direction and took a market radical neoliberal economic course at the beginning of the 1980s with the rise of monetarism. Hunger inthe world can only be overcome with long-term sustainable strategies, not with the short-term horizon of Wall Street.

We Are Our Biochemistry, Says George Riddle (tags)

George Riddle gave a lecture to the Humanist Fellowship of San Diego containing some provocative — and frightening — ideas about the human genome and the possibility of manipulating it. Drawing on the research of his uncle Oscar Riddle, a pioneering genetic scientist who made the cover of Time magazine in 1939 and died in 1952, as well as other, more recent scientists, George painted a picture of a brave new world in which diseases like cancer and diabetes have ceased to exist — and largely ignored the racist and classist applilcations of the knowledge he described so enthusiastically.

The GE ‘Golden Rice’ - An Exercise in How Not to do Science (tags)

Polished rice removes the nutrient rich aleurone layer for export, leaving polished rice nutrient deficient. AstraZeneca attempts to profit from selling GE rice with vitamin A from daffodils, when all people need to do is not remove the aleurone layer (but then AstraZeneca couldn't make billions off their deception)..

In-situ crop diversity, wild relatives & GE pollen contamination (tags)

In-situ (on site) conservation of crop biodiversity is another answer to the fallacy of genetic engineering (GMO/GE) monoculture crops promoted by biotech corporations. Wild relatives of crops like rice and maize can be intercrossed/introgressed to increase resistance to insect pests and "weed" competition. We only need to protect the wild relatives of crops like rice, potatoes and maize..

Californians Support Sustainable Agriculture! (tags)

On March 6, 2004 residents of Mendocino county passed a measure banning the cultivation of Genetically Engineered (GE) crops -- also known as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) -- within their county. Mendocino county’s Measure H is being used as a model for at least seven other counties in California where local residents are well on their way to passing similar measures. Californians feel that local measures seeking to ban the cultivation of GE crops are critical steps to take in the promotion of economically and ecologically sustainable agriculture.

A Real "Brave New World": What Human Genetic Engineers Plan for Your Future (tags)

Opponents of human genetic engineering spoke forcefully at a workshop at San Diego City College June 24 as part of the Biojustice/Beyond Biodevastation V event. Among the topics they discussed were the strong forces pushing society towards acceptance of human cloning and "designer" reproduction, the possibility of a future of genetic apartheid and the extent to which genetic engineering might combine with long-established prejudices to eliminate people of color and people with disabilities from the future human gene pool.
