Retrouvons nos valeures semencieres  ancestrales

Nous devons et sans negociation retrourner a la valeure semenciere ancestrale. Nos aieux ne dependaient de personne pour cultiver leur champ. Mais de nos jours, nous assistons a une monopolisation du secteur agricole qui rend pauvre nos agricultures et rend la population malade. L’economie ou les revenues agricoles sont dirigees vers la poche de ces grosse société en collaboration avec nos gouvernants qui ne prechent que pour leur poche. On doit dire non a ces pratique et redonner l’espoir a nos paissibles agriculteurs que c’est encore possible. Chaque agriculture avec sa banque de semence che lui a la maison ou dans son grenier. C’est notre lutte durant cette periode.

We need to return to the ancestral value of seeds, and we need to do so without negotiating. Our ancestors didn’t depend on anyone to farm their fields. Yet these days we’re witnessing a true monopolization of the agricultural sector, which impoverishes our agricultures and makes the population sick. This economy is such that agricultural revenues go straight into the pockets of big companies/corporations that collaborate with our governments, who preach only for the sake of their own pockets. We need to denounce these practices and help bring hope back to our peaceful farmers, in showing them that it’s still possible. We believe it is important for each farmer to keep a seed bank of their own, either in their home or in the granary. This is our struggle, that we’re fighting today.
