International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has claimed to utilize scientific research and development to eradicate hunger and poverty. To date, this has not been accomplished and the number of hungry people has risen. IRRI has put the world’s leading staple crop under the control of a few corporations that turned rice into a commodity that they control and profit from.
Join us in our campaign to save rice. More than one million people have already signed the People’s Statement on Saving the Rice of Asia.
