Green Politics-Part 1

Put a stop on monoculture (Monoculture is the agricultural practice of producing or growing one single crop over a wide area) and support local biodiversity resources.

Support local food systems by encourage growing multiple species and a wide variety of crops at the same time and same place. Encourage and support the rights of local communities to shape their food systems, exercising democratic control over matters of health, safety, and welfare.

Our current intensive food systems and associated policies favor big business while directly contradicting communities and local governments promoting food systems that enhance biodiversity, community health, food security, ecosystem health, and local economics.
Say no to GM crops and support local crops that are already adapt to their natural environment which in turn support local biodiversity.
