Via Campesina will be part of a action day in Brussels where there will be a demonstration to the Brussels offices of seed companies and their lobby organisations. You can find more information on it here: http://www.seed-sovereignty.org/EN/
Is anyone from here living there or thinking of participating? I will got there to interview people on this list that the EU now accepts of geneticaly modified crops that can be sold in European seed stores with no warning or something similar. Information in this sense is actually hard to find these days so I feel it needs to be put out there a bit more while companies like Monsanto try to keep it on a very low voice. Hope to see some of you there.

All the best,
Radu
