The Seed at the Heart of Freedom — Vandana Shiva

California Prop. 37 on the November ballot, requiring the labeling of GMOs, has the attention of the country and even the world. YES on 37 collected $3 Million, NO on 37 is funded by Monsanto, DuPont, Pepsi, BASF, Dow, Nestle, Coca-Cola and others to the tune of $25 million. Vandana Shiva addresses science and politics of GMOs in a passionate, convincing way without mentioning Prop. 37.

Vandana Shiva speaks in favor of regulating, labeling and banning genetically modified plants and animals. When the Indian physicist and ecologist found that global corporations wanted to patent seeds, crops or life forms, she started Navdanya to protect biodiversity, defend farmers’ rights and promote organic farming. Shiva’s books include Biopiracy, Stolen Harvest, Monocultures of the Mind, and Water Wars. Her many awards include the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the “Alternative Nobel Peace Prize.” She spoke in September 2011 at the Heirloom Seed Expo organized by Baker Creek Seeds along with many independent seed companies, farmers and schools.

Shiva, trained in quantum physics, became a seed saver and ecologist in 1982. She and her organization Navdanya have done a huge part of the work limiting the spread of GMOs into India. For her the attempts to impose GMOs on India is a war on life and the most recent wave of colonialism. She and the members of Navdanya learned from Gandhi’s campaigns against the British – and as Gandhi chose the spinning wheel and salt, they chose the seed as the vessel of life and dedicated themselves to its protection.

Shiva was recorded in September 2011 at the first national Heirloom Seed Expo held in Santa Rosa, CA. 10,000 people had come on short notice to see plants and seeds that would already be extinct had not someone lovingly collected and bred them.
