What is Biotechnology? Teach-In Answers Questions about GMOs and more
Dropping Some Science at the Teach-in
Farmers, scientists, and experts on genetically modified food and other biotech issues were dropping some science at the Teach-In organized in conjunction with the Reclaim the Commons protest. People gathered to hear about the consequences of allowing genetically modified food into our food systems, the effect of the biotechnology industry and corporate globalization on small farmers and the availability of food worldwide, and how the biotech industry leads to more hunger, more economic inequality. In addition, people discussed what we can do to stop the growing corporate control over our basic needs such as food and water. Photos Here
