2005 LLD1 Poitiers, France

The first forum Let’s Liberate diversity! was organized by the Réseau Semences Paysannes (Peasants’ Seed Network) and the National Coordination for the Defense of Farm-Saved Seeds (CNDSF) in November 2005 in Poitiers, France. The 150 participants, farmers and associations have exchanged on the rights of farmers linked to the production, exchange and conservation of seeds. The forum was followed by a strategy session on seeds, GMOs and GMO-free regions in the European Parliament in February 2006.
