We are writing to you from the Indian Coordination Committee of Farmers Movements, which is a network of farmers movements that is committed to dignity and self-respect for farmers. Several of our members also are part of the international peasants movementLa Via Campesina. We represent thousands of villages in South India and hundreds of thousands of farming families. Our member movements, such as Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, have taken staunch action against the giant enemies of farmers since its founding in the 1980s (For example Operation Cremate Monsanto in 1993, which created an international fervor).We have, and continue to, reject the so-called benefits of GMOs to our farmers, environment, and citizens.
