Seed is power – Reclaiming African Seed Sovereignty: Africans speak out against corporate hegemony over seed and food systems

Blog

In rejection of the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), which held its pre-summit this week, civil society, farmers groups and social movements came together for a global counter-mobilisation that spanned four days, with 15 online sessions. One of the webinars, titled Seed is power: Reclaiming African Seed Sovereignty, featured a presentation: Africans speak out against corporate hegemony over seed and food systems, by Sabrina Masinjila, research and advocacy officer at the African Centre of Biodiversity (ACB).

The presentation is based on the work of the ACB, in collaboration and partnership with many social movements on the continent, and work with social movements in various international fora over the years. You can watch the presentation by clicking on the video below.
