lyrics

"A real food system begins with real seed.
Real seed is not a manufacture, it is a self-organised living system and therefore it is diverse.
Real food is based on the loving care of farmers and with them is working millions of years of intelligence of nature.
That is real intelligence.
That is real knowledge of farming.
That is what gives real food.
Real food tastes good, real food looks good,
You know in real food who grew it.
So, anyone who is saving seeds, anyone who is an organic farmer, anyone who is creating local markets.
They are all food heroes." - (Vandana Shiva)

Do you like food? Well I do too
But food is not just for a privileged few
and around the world, we need our seed
to feed the world, not power and greed

So we've gotta say
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! GMO has got to go
Singin' hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho!
Your GMO has got to go

'Cause for centuries, we've saved our seeds
and they have grown to meet our needs
But not one company is trying to take control
to modify and commodify our food-bowl

But we've gotta say
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Your GMO has got to go
Singin' hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho!
Your GMO has got to go

"We need to realise we are in a new kind of war declared by corporations like Monsanto.
It can't be fought violently, it can't be fought on their terms.
It has to be responded to in a loving and peaceful way.
Celebrating this diversity and creating joy in the process.
The reason our movement is strong is we are not feeling miserable.
We are growing gardens with joy, we are saving seeds with joy.
Find the seeds of freedom and protect them and grow the gardens of hope no matter what.
For every seed saved and every garden created, we are not just cultivating good food, we are cultivating a new community and a new society."
- (Vandana Shiva)

So together we must grow and together we must stand
and together sow these seeds to regenerate this land
So spread this call, this SOS to Save Our Seeds
'Cause we need nothing less than

Food for everyone
Save our seed freedom
We need
Food for everyone
Save our seed freedom

Yeah, we've gotta say
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Your GMO has got to go
Singin' hey, hey! Ho, ho! We don't wan't your GMO
Hey, hey! Ho, ho!
Your GMO has got to go!

about

Formidable Vegetable Sound System Fremantle, Australia

Experimental ‘ecological edutainment’ based around the principles of permaculture (a neat way to fix the world) mashing together ukulele with some electro-funk-swing, climate-change reggae, post-apocalypso and a decent serving of 'Radish Beets'.
