Let the world know that Seed Freedom is the basis of Food Freedom and Food Sovereignty, versus corporate-controlled agriculture that has dramatically increased the price of food all around the world.

Let the world know that agroecology is a far more sophisticated and holistic science of agriculture than biotechnology.

Demand farmers’ rights to save and exchange seeds, and citizens’ rights to know and choose what they eat, as the founding principles of food democracy.
