Seed Sovereignty

Seed Sovereignty

Location: University of Oregon, Republic of Eugene, Oregon
Featuring: Vandana Shiva

To Vandana Shiva, the notion that corporations can own the patents to seeds is nothing but a creation myth. She says, “Capitalist patriarchy assumes that when capital touches life, including when it touches life to extinguish it, that’s when creation begins. This is necessarily blind to the creativity, intelligence and work of nature, of women, of peasants. We are basically saying to the capitalist patriarchy, you have no idea about the intelligence in nature and diversity, you are not the creators, you are the destroyers."
