Fowl play: The poultry industry's central role in the bird flu crisis

 
Fowl play: The poultry industry's central role in the bird flu crisis (info)
http://www.grain.org/briefings/?id=194
GRAIN: "A burning question is why governments and international agencies, like the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, are doing nothing to investigate how the factory farms and their byproducts, such as animal feed and manure, spread the virus. Instead, they are using the crisis as an opportunity to further industrialise the poultry sector. Initiatives are multiplying to ban outdoor poultry, squeeze out small producers and restock farms with genetically-modified chickens. The web of complicity with an industry engaged in a string of denials and cover-ups seems complete."
