2015 Special Broadcasts / 6th Native Seed and Family Farming Festival – Uruguay

While in Latin America agribusiness corporations are pushing for the privatization of peasant, indigenous and native seeds, family farmer groups are organizing themselves to preserve the “heritage of the peoples at the service of humankind”. The 6th Native Seed Festival of Uruguay will take place under this slogan in Termas de Almirón, near Guichón city, Paysandú department, where the participants will discuss, among other things, about the effects of agrotoxics on the rural people, the financialization of nature and the experiences of struggle for land and self-management by rural workers. The organizers of the Festival, the Native Seed Network of Uruguay, will hold their 7th national meeting shortly before the Festival.
