By Food Sovereignty Ghana
The darkest day in the history of the 4th Republic of Ghana, as Ghana signs the UPOV-compliant ARIPO Plant Variety Protection Protocol.
It is a shame that even up till now Ghanaians have no idea who represented them there at this conference and whom they have consulted!
It is obvious that the Mahama Administration has made the political decision to listen to the pro-GM lobby rather than the millions of Ghanaians who want nothing to do with it!
If the government of Ghana so freely chooses to elect a new people that it listens to, it behoves on the people of Ghana to elect a new government that listens to them! ! ?#?StopARIPO?! ?#?SayNoToARIPO?!!!
The most outrageous aspect of this betrayal is that they are calling for a rapid ratification! In other words, they want to avoid a thorough discussion of what is going on in the first place!
The ball is now in the court of every Ghanaian who eats food and knows a thing or two about what is going on about our food! For this reason, Food Sovereignty Ghana fully endorses the statement below by AFSA.
