PASS – Plant A Seed Saturday: Garlic

Anywhere,
Wherever you are United States

This month we are asking you to plant some garlic (just break your garlic into cloves and plant). Virtually every part of the plant can be put on your plate and their flowers are perfect for bees. Garlic is also relatively easy to grow and is a powerful, anti-bacterial, anti-viral herb. Each clove has the potential to produce a full garlic with cloves that could see you through for a week or more. Leave to flower and harvest later or pick out garlic just before flowering for bulbous garlic.

RSVP link at end of discription,
Webinar, On-line, MD United States

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a massive “free trade” agreement that isn’t really about trade. It’s now being negotiated behind closed doors and influenced by over 600 corporate advisors. If it passes, the TPP would have an impact on the food you eat, the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the cost of your medications. It would give the green light to global corporations that send jobs overseas, thus undermining the U.S. labor movement and creating a global race to the bottom. The TPP would undermine democracy worldwide and forever change the way we use the internet.

March for GM-free, patent-free Seeds – Marcha por las semillas libres de patentes y transgénicos

SANTIAGO, Chile

Although seed registering has been legal in Chile in the last 15 years, seed production had actually still remained in the hands of farmers. The vast majority of fruits and vegetables we buy in open markets come from small and medium farming, based on their autonomy of production.
This is the reality that the new Plant Breeders Bill now wants to change. The initiative passed the House of Representatives in 2011 and is now discussed at the Senate. We call it “privatization of the seed level 2″, linked to UPOV 91 which guarantees royalties for owners of hybrid seeds and/or GMOs.

2013 Food Sovereignty Prize

July 1, 2013 - July 1, 2014
GLOBAL,

The Food Sovereignty Prize was first awarded in 2009 as an alternative to the World Food Prize founded by “the father of the Green Revolution,” the late Norman Borlaug. While the World Food Prize emphasizes increased production through technology, the Food Sovereignty Prize champions solutions coming from those most impacted by the injustices of the global food system. In honoring those who are taking back their food systems, the Food Sovereignty Prize affirms that nothing short of the true democratization of our food system will enable us to end hunger once and for all.

Launch of the Great Monsanto Boycott

June 30, 2013 - June 30, 2014
Everywhere,

Starting June 30th, we need millions of people to stop eating Monsanto products.
The only way we could get Monsanto to pay attention is a boycott. A march could only do so much because it gets no media coverage, and does nothing in terms of affecting their sales. The only way to get their attention and make real change is direct action. If we could affect their profits they might change their attitudes towards things like GMO labeling, gene patenting, shady legal practices, using agriculture practices that …rely on petrochemicals that are bad for the environment, putting small farms out of business, and prohibiting GMO bans in local towns and counties.

German Parliament prohibits patents on plants and animals from conventional breeding

June 27, 2013 - June 27, 2014
German Parliament,
BERLIN, Germany

Today German Parliament will change German patent law to prohibit patents on plants and animals derived from conventional breeding. This is in line with demands from many civil society organisations which request changes in patent law to prevent patents such as the recently granted “patent on severed broccoli” from Monsanto (EP 1597965). Nevertheless the new patent law will still leave substantive loopholes for similar patents. It is unlikely that other more comprehensive proposals put forward by the opposition parties in the German Parliament (Social Democrats and Green Party) will find a majority of support. Furthermore, the European Patent Office (EPO) is also not bound by this vote.

Keep Monsanto Activity Book Out of Elementary Schools

June 15, 2013 - June 15, 2014
United States,

The inclusion of a teacher’s guide in Monsanto’s activity book suggests that this guide is intended for inclusion into elementary school curricula across the country. The implementation of this book into school programs implies that the information contained within it is true. This is not the case. Our children should not be exposed to the lies of a company unconcerned with the health or well-being of our environment or society and purely driven by their own bottom-line.

On Tuesday 11th June, the Senate resumes processing the Plant Breeders Act, which repeals the existing Seeds Act to enable the enactment of UPOV 91, tailored to hybrid and transgenic seeds corporations like Monsanto. The Breeders Bill contains articles that, among other aberrations, prohibit the exchange and saving of seed and allow the breeder (Monsanto, Bayer, von Baer, Dupont, Syngenta, etc.) to sue the offender for “piracy”. The Bill was presented by former President Bachelet and then opposed by small farmers and social organizations. Payment of royalty or patent extends not only to the seed but the products derived from it.
