ABOUT THE SEED IS POWER CAMPAIGN
Seed is our birthright, weaving together our culture, tradition and place.
Today, this right is under threat.
Corporations are stripping farmers across Africa of their ability to save, sell, and exchange their seeds.
But across the continent, groups are fighting to reclaim the power of seed —
To keep seed in the hands of the many, not the few.
In this day-long rally we will honor African seed, celebrate the work of farmers across Africa, learn about farmer-managed seed systems, and unite against corporate attempts to control seed.
We call on audiences across Africa, the diaspora, and the world to rally around
their struggle for sovereignty.
This campaign is hosted by the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa and A Growing Culture. AFSA is comprised of more than 30 African civil society organizations, and echoes the voices of 200 million family farmers, pastoralists, fisherfolk, faith-based groups and Indigenous communities in the fight for food sovereignty and agroecology.
