Opponents of modified seeds plan a week of activities

Opponents of genetically modified corn seeds say they have 30 activities planned this week to promote their views.

Among the events will be a debate on Radio María Thursday at 10:30 a.m. and a demonstration at the same time before Casa Presidencial in Zapote.

The demonstrations and other activities are designed to protect what is being called Costa Rican heritage corn seed from genetic pollution by corn produced by Monsanto that has been modified to resist weed killer. A government decision to permit a Monsanto subsidiary grow a small path of modified corn is being challenged in the Sala IV constitutional court.
