Calling Italy! (re EU seed law)

From the Real Seed Catalogue:

EU Seed Law campaigning - request for help

Does anyone have any gardening / organic growing / permaculture contacts in Italy? The chair of the Agriculture committee and also the Chief Rapporteur for this legislation are both Italian.

We've heard that there isn't much awareness of this law and the likely effects in Italy, so it would be great if anyone was able to encourage some urgent lobbying of these MEPs from their home country.

The next deadline for amendments is 4th December, so it needs to be over the weekend or very early next week!

Take nobody's word for it, especially not mine! If I offer you an ID of something based on a photo, please treat it as a guess, and a starting point for further investigations.
