NO TO BIOCAPITALISM!   FOR ECOLOGICAL FOOD!

A march 12th of february 2 pm from the center square of Tampere, Finland
The main  demonstration of Black and Green days 2000

It is a basic need of every human to have food produced in the
living nature. Biocapitalism means an attempt of the capital to transform
our basic needs and genes to a commercial product, ruled by the
multinational companies. In another hand this means developing of the
biotechnology to serve the transnational capital, in another hand this means
destroying of the peasantry as a whole, or putting it under the control of
the multinational capital. 

We have seen the "effective" agricultural technologies by capital to
bring us the mad cow disease, hormone beef and the horrible conditions in
the cage farms. Now the want us to trust to the genetic engineering, which
touches the essence of the animals very deeply. No consumers nor farmers
want genetically engineered food, it is only of interest to the
multinational corporations trying to grow their power and profit, no matter
what is the price which our health and enviroment pays. Multinational
corporations are
talking about the eradiction of the malnutrition, but actually the result of
concentration of the food production is the contrary. Hundreds of millions
are not malnourished because there is no food, but because poors have no a
chance to grow their own food, nor a chance to buy it from the market. The
famine grows when the multinationals are pushing millions of peasants from
their lands with their new technologies. Peasants all around the world are
fighting against the power of the multinational agribusiness and
biotechnologies of the capital.

Biocapitalism means famine and hazardous products, a bankruptcy of the
peasants and misleading of the consumers.  Our alternatice is ecologic,
decentralized food production, based on the respect of the nature and the
animals. Tools of the capital, like the genetic technology and the WTO, are
a threat which can be crushed by the human resistance. Seattle was our first
victory in this struggle, now it is the time to get the resistance into the
streets of Finland as well. So we are calling all farmers, consumers,
defenders of nature and animals - everyone in whose interest it is to fight
against the biocapitalism to join us.
