THREAT TO SEEDSAVERS

Read what Chaiselongue from Olives and Artichokes has to say about a court case the Kokopelli Seeds Foundation is involved in and please sign the petition. It is in French but the instructions are clear(ish). Don't think 'this is someone else's problem' because this attack on the control of our food is, I think, the single most important issue for the survival of human civilisation facing us now. As I wrote about in my post Sowing the Seeds of Civilisation.

Thanks for posting about this. I agree it is very important. I wish there was more we could do, but it seems to hard to stop big businesses just doing what they want. La Vie Verte has a link to a frightening video about Monsanto, which I expect you've seen.
