A Call to Action: Declaration of Seed Freedom
Across the globe, citizens, farmers, and entire communities are uniting in resistance to the large biotech companies that now own the patents to seeds. A Declaration of Seed Freedom has been written by Dr. Vandana Shiva and signed by thousands of supporters around the world. It concludes with the affirmation:
"To this end, we will save seed, we will create community seed banks and seed libraries, we will not recognize any law that illegitimately makes seed the private property of corporations. We will stop the patents on seed."
