We support agroecological, farmer-based systems that conserve soil, water, and energy and that produce healthy and nutritious food free from unnecessary toxins. We challenge the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizer and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture on the grounds of the scientifically proven hazards that they pose to health and the environment and because of the negative social and economic impacts of these technologies. We believe that our crop seeds and food system are common goods that belong in the hands of farmers and citizens, not of the GMO and chemical industry.
