Dear friends,

At the Rome's Forum for Food Sovereignty (June 8-13) there will be a conference on the Treaty Initiative To Share The Genetic Commons on
Wednesday, June 12 from 5:00pm-8:00pm in the Palazzo dei Congressi (room TBA).  The conference will be an open discussion of the pros and cons of  the Genetic Commons Initiative.  The Treaty is still in the process of being developed, and therefore it is very important to hear voices on all
sides of the issues.

If you are coming to Rome to the Food Sovereignty Forum and to the Food Summit you are most than welcome to contribute to this open discussion on the Treaty Initiative To Share The Genetic Commons.

Looking forward to seeing you in Rome,

In solidarity,
