Series of Articles in The Nation


 "Just as dramatic is the struggle for the seed. More than 1,000 independent seed companies were swallowed up by multinationals in the past four decades, so today just three—Monsanto, DuPont and Syngenta—control about half the proprietary seed market worldwide."  from an essay by Frances Moore LappĂ©, titled, "The Food Movement: Its Power and Possibilities" from a series of essays featured in The Nation.  Other essays in the series come from Raj Patel, Vandana Shiva, Eric Schlosser, and Michael Pollan and they are all worth a few seconds to read.
