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

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.
