Join ASEED on a solidarity trip to Belgium: Monday 27th -Tuesday 28th May.

We are organising transport to Dendermonde, to support the 11 activists that are resisting the unjust sentences in the ‘GM potato trial’. 

And you are invited to participate actively. At the first hearing the defense team did not have the chance to present their evidence, their witnesses or to explain their action. Now their will be a Public Hearing, organised independently from the courthouse, in which we can all exchange our arguments and form our opinion together.  Citizens, farmers, researchers, and anybody else interested in the issue: bring your knowledge, experience and ideas.

We will be leaving on the evening of Monday 27th May, and returning after the trial finishes on Tuesday 28th.
