Short Description: 
Korean women farmers have an alternative to American agribusiness

Former KBOO volunteer Kellyn Gross sent us this report from Korea, where she as been living.

The controversial Korea-United States Free Trade Agreement went into effect on March 15 after nearly five years of debate and protests in Korea's capitol of Seoul.  The FTA stands to be detrimental to Korean farmers and small merchants.  Yet despite the ratification of the KORUS-FTA, Korean women farmers already have an alternative to American agribusiness.
