Greenpeace International's Genetic Engineering Campaign (Homepage) 

Thomas Schweiger, Patenting life (Greenpeace European Unit - April 1999) 
"It is no secret that the biotech industries, which are manipulating plants, animals and even the 
human genome, are using gene technology to try to gain total control not only over their own 
"creations" - the genetically modified organisms (GMOs) - but quite simply over the planet's genetic 
heritage itself. "Genes are the currency of the future", a leading executive of a giant pharmaceutical 
company once said. And whoever controls this currency, controls the future."

Richard Stallman's GNU Project  = Free Software Foundation 
The GNU Project started in 1984 to develop a complete free Unix-like operating system. Variants of the GNU system, using Linux as the kernel, are now widely used; though often called ``Linux'', they are more accurately called GNU/Linux systems. The first test release of ``the'' GNU system, using the GNU Hurd as the kernel, was made in August 1996.
