Seed laws that criminalise farmers: resistance and fightback
This paper (PDF) by La Via Campesina and GRAIN is going deeper into seed laws and legislative processes. They explore how seed laws make farmers’ seeds illegal and which types of seed laws are promoted by the industry. Furthermore, special attention is paid to the struggles of farmers with examples from Africa, America, Asia and Europe. This booklet is intended to serve as an information tool, supporting the work of organisations by informing and explaining, in combination with the poster. Some additional country experiences can be found here.
