Corporate monopoly of seeds & dominating research & breeding, poses a massive threat not only to #biodiversity but food sovereignty- Seeds bred for profit not for food security. Corporates also working to criminalise farmer seed systems & farmers' rights to share & breed #seed
Seed laws only speak to the commercial sector who are Privatising the commons of genetic resources. corporates then influence states to subsidise their privatised seed. #ResilientLivlihoods&ClimateJustice2019
80% of the world's food is produced by small holder farmers who also prefer their own seed over commercial seed. Local seed is adapted to local ecology & social contact, resilient to climatic changes. For farmers resilience is more NB than maximum yields #ResilientLivlihoods

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.
