Cost of Labelling was discussed, who pays for trials etc. Mayibuye Landless Peoples Movement were Present, Farmworkers & Small Farmers from Lutzville affected by the GMO Maize trials there, ACB (African Centre for Biosafety), and entomologists (insect specialists), Consumer Rights Watch, Abalimi, Agrarian Revolutionary Congress (ARC), March Against Monsanto (MAM) and other Members of NO GMO South Africa Movement.
