Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, THE FUTURE OF FOOD examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations (like Monsanto) seek to control the world’s food system.

  1. EPA: a “potentially responsible party” for 56 contaminated sites (Superfund sites) in the United States.
  2. Terminator seed controversy – a suicide technology. Can you imagine what this suicide gene will do if it pollutes crops around the world? The promoters say it won’t outcross. But of course it does.
  3. Since the mid-1990s, Monsanto it has sued some 150 US farmers for patent infringement in connection with its GE seed. Some of the farmers had the seed blown across property lines, off of a truck for example, where it contaminated the crops and seed stock that in some cases took a lifetime to create or was handed down from generations. US courts have ruled in favor of Monsanto in such cases. Read about the Nelson Farm.

“As we move on into this so-called biotech revolution and we start producing more and more transgenic manipulations, we’ll start seeing pieces of DNA interacting with each other in ways that are totally unpredictable…

I think this is probably the largest biological experiment humanity has ever entered into.”

Citizen Spotlight: Mimi Evans Writes to John Conyers at john.conyers@mail.house.gov

Dear Chairman Conyers,
I am a resident of Brooklyn, NY, and the proud mother of a US Marine who served in Iraq. I love America deeply and have studied its history. Though my son came home safe, thousands of other sons and daughters will never return from Iraq. I am convinced that they are fighting for nothing. NOTHING. The war in Iraq is a scam and a sham, and America’s complete and total decline in economic and political prestige is the result. History will be a harsh judge of the sycophants who support George Bush, including almost all of the US Congress – including the lazy, myopic Democrats (and especially Pelosi). Please rise above all of this, and for the sake of the country – envision the sacrifices of the military in EVERY war, not just Iraq – please begin impeachment hearings IMMEDIATELY. People may say, “The end of the administration is near…what good will it do?” I ask you to imagine how much damage Bush, Cheney, Mukasey, Rice etc. can do in a mere week, let alone a full year. Now is the time for utmost patriotism and bravery. Rise above. Answer the call of history. For the sake of all of our children who will now inherit a morally bereft and failing country. Do the right thing and impeach them all.
Sincerely,
Mimi Evans
Brooklyn, NY

Citizen Spotlight: Letter to Chris Van Hollen

Dear Congressman Van Hollen:

There is, they say, more than one way to skin a cat. I hope so, because our efforts thus far have yielded a big fat zero. I refer not to the skinning of cats, of course, but to popular efforts at restoring the rule of law in the United States through the impeachment of the President and Vice President.
