Example text

GM crops are the ultimate tool of a corporate-led industrial agriculture system. Under a GM dominated agriculture system a handful of corporations own genes, seeds, and seed chemicals, further enslaving farmers and, in effect, controlling the world’s food supply. GM crops pose significant economic risks to California’s farmers and food industries. Once planted in open fields, GE crops may contaminate the environment through pollen drift, seed mix-ups, and inadvertent transfer of seeds by humans, animals and extreme weather events.

As noted earlier in this report, there are legitimate reasons why domestic or regional governments should encourage and support a vital agricultural base. However, rich countries should not be allowed to subsidize export crops at levels that enable dumping. The case of California organic cotton demonstrates why it is essential that domestic and international policies apply the principle of subsidiarity. That is, policies should favor local production for local consumption over long-distance production and transport of goods.

Such policies destroy the livelihoods of Korean farmers and their communities and at the same time, render American farmers vulnerable to the volatility of the global pricing system. In both Korea and the United States, the bias should invariably be to strengthen local production for local consumption and to reduce long-distance food shipments. 5) Allow Export Bans: Countries must also be allowed to impose export bans that protect natural resources. For example, it is currently WTO-illegal for member nations to ban the export of unprocessed logs.
