A Criminal Act
In the war between biodiversity and privatization, the battle in the Andes over protecting the genetic diversity of indigenous potatoes from an invasion of genetically modified seeds from the United States illustrates the colonial attributes of Free Trade. As an act of theft, the GMO agenda of supplanting indigenous food and medicine with monopolized foreign commodities is tantamount to cultural genocide. The fact this US-sponsored program is already exacerbating starvation around the world makes it a criminal act.
