Video - Indian Ecologist Vandana Shiva: The Future of Food and Seed

Dr. Shiva asks why regulate natural seeds that have evolved for thousands of years and which cause no harm. "Since it has no harm, it has no need for state regulation." What should be regulated are the genetically modified seeds which do cause harm, including genetic contamination.

She likens the seed wars to India's salt wars when the British empire tried to regulate salt. "Seed doesn't belong to the humans; it belongs to all the species that are nourished by it." And she asserts on behalf of all farmers:

"We will not obey a law that makes it illegal for us to perform our highest ecological duty on earth, which is to save seeds for the future."
