Sowing the Future – Harvesting Diversity!
From the 25th to the 27th of March 2010, will be held in Gratz (Austria)
the 5th Meeting of the European Seed Network “Let’s liberate diversity!”.
Detailed information are available on La Via Campesina web site
Workshop One : “Revision of the EU-seed legislation framework” ,
will be animated by Guy Kastler in the name of the Réseau Semences Paysannes (France).
To enable those who wish to understand the issues, attached is a document prepared by the RSP on this topic.
Note (a useful reminder?) that the European legislation is drafted with the lobbying of economic interests (including Monsanto) and in ignorance of the representatives of civil society (among which participants in the European network of seed).
