The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) strongly opposes the UPOV91-compliant Plant Breeders' Bill, currently before Ghana's Parliament!
UPOV 91 (International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants) is a legal convention that protects plant breeders when they create new varieties of plants. It does not protect the plants; rather it protects Intellectual Property Rights of the breeders.
International agribusiness corporations want countries to pass UPOV 91-compliant laws because it means huge profits for those companies.
We, the undersigned, call on the President and Parliament of Ghana, in the interest of national sovereignty, to withdraw the UPOV91-compliant Plant Breeders' Bill, currently before Ghana's Parliament.
The GHANA MUST REJECT UPOV91 petition to Parliament of Ghana was written by Political Organisation and is in the category National Affairs at GoPetition.
