Declaration for International Women’s Day 2015 against GMO crops

On International Women’s Day, 1993 Laureate Dr Vandana Shiva along with other grassroots organisations in India called “on all women – the world’s primary food-growers and food-givers – to stand together and reclaim our knowledge, our farming, and our food. To expose the lies generated by the GMO industry, to reject the false promises of Golden Rice and GMO Bananas, and to reclaim the planet for all living beings.”

The signatories have expressed firm resolve to encourage use of indigenous seeds and crops to fight malnutrition and health issues. Eighteen RLA Laureates have also endorsed the declaration so far.
