On April 4, 2018, more than 500 farmers, consumers, academe, women and children sectors in the Philippines as well as international participants from Asia as well as New Zealand and Australia converged in front of the Department of Agriculture to call on the department to immediately scrap the application for open field test and direct use of Golden Rice in the Philippines.

The mobilization also coincides IRRI’s 58th year existence in the Philippines, in which protesters also called for the immediate closure of the said institute stating that farmers have become more indebted and poorer under IRRI’s Green Revolution program.
No to GMOs, No to Golden Rice!
