From 2nd October (Gandhi’s Birth Anniversary), to 16th October (World Food Day) the Global Alliance for Seed Freedom is planning intensive actions to create a global citizens’ response on the issue of Seed Freedom that we hope will act as a wake up call for citizens and the government. Gandhi had said, “as long as the superstition that unjust laws must be obeyed exist, so will slavery exist”.
Humanity and diverse species on the Earth are being pushed into a new form of seed slavery. In the spirit of Gandhi, the Global Alliance for Seed Freedom is calling for civil disobedience against unjust laws. Visit their website to read their ideas for actions as a starting point to plan common strategies and actions as the campaign for Seed Freedom becomes stronger and louder.
