API presents case on transgenic seeds

Since 2003, around 10 peasants in Kediri regency have either been sued in court or put in jail after being accused by PT Bisi, a seed company, of illegal breeding and stealing of company seeds. The Aliansi Petani Indonesia (API) has been documenting these cases involving their peasant members.

Their case was presented by East Java Research and Development Coordinator Dawud during AFA’s seminar-workshop on sustainable agriculture in Batu City, Malang, Indonesia last September 14, 2006.
