New EU law that could ban all seeds
By Rozie Apps | Permaculture
Seed lovers, growers and local producers could all be harmed under the proposed Regulation on Marketing of Plant Reproductive Material by the EU. Sign this petition and email the decision makers to stop this happening.
A New Seed Law will go before the EU commissioners on May 6th 2013.
The Regulation on Marketing of Plant Reproductive Material law will mean no seed can be sold, or potentially even given for free to anyone in the EU unless that seed is already registered on the EU Plant List as an íapprovedí variety.
This would outlaw heritage seeds, that are historical and natural seeds which have not been manufactured into hybrids. They produce natural plants that our ancestors would have grown.
This new regulation threatens farmersí varieties and rare varieties, stoping diversity and could bring distinction to the many seeds that will not be on the EU list.
Small-scale farmers and local producers will be harmed as industrial seed companies extend their dominance and reap the benefits.
Sign the Avaaz petition HERE calling for the Law to be amended.
A more radical petition: We will not comply! can be signed HERE.

European Commission to criminalize nearly all seeds and plants not registered with government
By Mike Adams | NaturalNews
A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to "grow, reproduce or trade" any vegetable seeds that have not been "tested, approved and accepted" by a new EU bureaucracy named the "EU Plant Variety Agency."
Itís called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.
The draft text of the law, which has already been amended several times due to a huge backlash from gardeners, is viewable here.
"This law will immediately stop the professional development of vegetable varieties for home gardeners, organic growers, and small-scale market farmers," said Ben Gabel, vegetable breeder and director of The Real Seed Catalogue. "Home gardeners have really different needs - for example they grow by hand, not machine, and canít or donít want to use such powerful chemical sprays. Thereís no way to register the varieties suitable for home use as they donít meet the strict criteria of the Plant Variety Agency, which is only concerned about approving the sort of seed used by industrial farmers."
