Planet Diversity World Congress on the Future of Food and Agriculture

The Demonstration

For biological diversity – regional, fair and GMO-free!

We were more than 6000 people on Whit Monday, the 12th of May, to demonstrate at the site of the negotiations:

  • for the human right to adequate, diverse and healthy food – against the misuse of agriculture for agro-fuel, and other raw materials for international speculation;
  • for the right of consumers and farmers to decide – against genetic experiments with our food and our environment;
  • for the free exchange of seeds and agricultural know-how – against patents on life forms and bio-piracy;
  • for the preservation of regional diversity – against agro-industrial monocultures and the worldwide death of farmers;
  • for biological diversity – regional, fair and GMO-free!
