Queensland GM bananas = Biopiracy

Indonesian food sovereignty organisation Mantasa sees the GM banana is "a clear case of biopiracy". Natural beta-carotene-rich orange bananas have long been available and have been used in Indonesia as a food to wean babies. In an open letter to QUT, Jim Dale and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds the project, they are calling for creative non-violent, non-cooperation with the GMO ‘super-banana’ project in defense of biodiversity.
