Summary
"The seeds of the world are now owned primarily by one company, Monsanto. Monsanto is aiming to extend its control to pigs by patenting and thus privatising gene sequences, many of which are found naturally in pigs. Monsanto is doing this despite the fact that the pig has not yet been genetically engineered. Betzelberger is travelling around Germany encouraging farmers to protest against this "sell-out of life". This happened in the 1990s when genetic technology was green lighted. Steven Druker, judge and civil rights activist, says "This, I believe, is one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated by any government in history." -- website
