JOIN the BIOENGINEERING ACTION NETWORK (BAN), HOST OF A NEW LISTSERVE FOR 
ACTIVIST NETWORKING AGAINST GENETIC ENGNEERING!!!

BAN was created to facilitate communication among citizens who want to 
organize against the commodification of life itself by the 
"genetic-industrial complex".

The detrimental effects of this economic trend include the pollution of 
the gene pool, the weakening of biodiversity, the agricultural 
colonization of the third world by Monsanto and other transnational 
corporations in the form of seed patents, and the potential permanent 
loss of indigenous cultural knowledge and practice.

Grassroots movements around the planet are working to counter the slick 
public relations campaigning engineered by the corporations to convince 
the world that genetic engineering will feed the world and save lives, 
and to expose the despicable collusion of governmental bodies with such 
schemes in the form of the attempted gutting of Organic Standards (which 
the USDA is still trying to do), and brokering partnerships with Novartis 
and Monsanto at the University of California.

If you want to stay up to date on developments in the International 
peoples' struggle to retain control over our agricultural practices and 
the native biodiversity of the ecosystems in which we live, 

If you want to share ideas, contacts and resouces for mobilizing 
ourselves against the St. Louis-based corporation Monsanto and other such 
planetary
villains, and connect with regional and local groups working on these 
issues,

If you want to announce, propose or promote days of action, new 
campaigns, publications and educational materials, outreach projects, and 
to discuss organizing
strategies,
