Jane Goodall's conversation about her personal relationship to seeds and biodiversity:
I was very, very fortunate when I was a child, there was a fantastic tree. My tree began from a tiny little seed and I spent hours and hours up in the branches of that tree. And how magic that it could actually grow into a big tree. That tree is still in the garden today.
Seeds are so crafty. There is a power, it's a magic. To me it's magic. It's a life force is so strong. There are seeds that rely on fire There are seeds that tangle up in the hair of an animal. They get carried for miles. There are seeds that can't germinate unless they pass through the gut of an animal. Darwin was amazed that a seed grew after it had been 21 hours in the stomach of an owl.
Henry Kissinger said "If you want to control the country, control the oil, if you want to control the people, control the food."
Vandana Shiva says, "If you want to control the food, control the seed."
When seed started to become a patented product sold by corporations, you destroy seed freedom.
A seed is a doorway between the life of the old plant and its gift to the new plant. Our teachers are the plants. And they're teaching us that they have to sacrifice themselves in order to be able to give something to the next generation. It's a form of reincarnation.
The egregious lawsuit p1 of 2:
In 1998, we were just beginning harvesting canola in the middle of August. My neighbor had grown GMO canola and our fields were contaminated. And a bus station phoned up and I thought that's unusual and they said there's a parcel here for you. Later on that evening, open it, here's a lawsuit from Monsanto, and I didn't think much of it! What's this patent infringement? Didn't even know what that was.
The egregious lawsuit p2 of 2:
Our family lawyer looked at me and he says,
"Percy, I think you're in trouble."
I said "What for?"
Well, he said, "They're charging you that you have their GMO seeds,"
and I said, "What are GMO seeds?"
The judge's stated that it does not matter how you're contaminated. You violate the patent and you no longer own your seeds.
That right should never be taken away from a farmer. You are taking seed that has been there for thousands of years and put a patent on it and say you own it. Basically it's robbery. To me, that's really a violation of human rights.
