Dear Friends, Dear Seed Savers and Defenders of Seed Freedom,
It has just come to my notice that Avaaz has launched a campaign for fundraising for an “ebay of seeds” and my name has been used in their petition without my permission or consultation. This is unethical. I do not endorse it. I also do not support the concept even if my name had not been used.
We have all with love and solidarity built a strong movement for saving seeds and farmers’ rights on the ground and in our communities. Let us continue our work with full integrity and mutual trust.
