A symbolic ‘solidarity’ action in support of Polish farmers will take place on Sir Julian Rose’s Path Hill Farm on the Hardwick Estate, Whitchurch-on-Thames, Saturday 26th January. Sir Julian will also drive his tractor on a shopping trip to Reading.
The action is being organized by Sir Julian, owner of the Hardwick Estate and President of The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside (ICPPC), to express solidarity with Polish farmers who are blockading towns in North West Poland in order to stop the government selling off prime farmland to multinational corporations to grow GM food on. Jadwiga Lopata, founder of the ICPPC and Goldman Prize Laureat, is co-organising the event.Sir Julian recently mounted a prominent ‘GMO Free Zone’ sign on the gates of his Hardwick Estate at Whitchurch-on-Thames and is an active campaigner against GM foods in Poland and in the UK.
