by TOAM | 10 Aug 2016

Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement (TOAM) launches a powerful documentary film, "Uhuru wa Mbegu za Wakulima (Seeds of Freedom Tanzania)".

"Uhuru wa Mbegu za Wakulima" captures the testimonies of farmers whose customary rights to save, share and exchange seed are threatened by seed laws designed to replace traditional varieties with commercial hybrids and handover control to the global seed companies. The 28-minute film follows a local seed producer, Mathias Mtwale, as he meets with farmers, researchers, seed suppliers, regulators, and legislators to understand the issues, and to make the case for a fair deal for the farmers.
