New from GRAIN | 9 November 2010

Seedling October 2010 now available

The October 2010 issue of Seedling features an article by GRAIN on the global expansion of industrial meat production and the rise of a new crop of transnational meat corporations based in countries of the South. The article exposes the actors behind the phenomenon and inventories the devastating impacts on people and the planet.

The climate crisis features strongly in this issue as well. An article by GRAIN looks at the outcomes and follow-up from the “People’s World Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth’s Rights”, held in Cochabamba in April 2010, while an editorial by the World Rainforest Movement takes apart the push for "carbon shopping in forests". This issue contains another article by the World Rainforest Movement that considers how the Roundtable on Responsible Palm Oil encourages the expansion of monoculture oil palm plantations around the world.

Plus, South African researcher Rachel Wynberg takes a critical look back at the experiences of the San peoples of Southern Africa with the high-profile case of access-and-benefi sharing surrounding the Hoodia plant. And, in the Seeds section, there are three short articles that look at different aspects of the crisis of the global food system, from the recent ban on wheat exports in Russia, to a massive egg recall in the US, to organised demands for change in India.
