Subject: May Events From the Ocean Beach Green Center

May Events at the Ocean Beach Green Center

Ocean Beach Green Center, 4843 B Voltaire Street, Ocean Beach 92107      oceanbeachgreencenter@gmail.com 619.225.1083

 

May 12th     Thursday       7 p.m.       Film Night         "Bitter Seeds"

Bitter Seeds explores the controversy surrounding genetically modified (GM) seeds, focusing on a region in India where an epidemic of farmer suicides has claimed over a quarter million lives.  Biotechnology is changing the way farming is done all over the world. Advocates believe the "New Green Revolution" is the only way to provide sufficient food for the world's growing population while opponents raise environmental concerns and fear that GMOs drive small-scale farmers off the land.  Bitter Seeds explores the controversy — from a village in India that uses genetically modified seeds to U.S. government agencies that promote them.  The subject of Bitter Seeds is timely for the U.S., where states including California, Colorado, Iowa, Maryland, and Washington are debating and voting on initiatives requiring the labeling of GMOs in our food.  Free of Charge  :-)
