Nyeleni newsletter - Now is the time for food sovereignty!
Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations. (…) Declaration of Nyeleni.

social movements to the FAO, governments, universities and
corporations. But not all have the same idea of agroecology
in mind. While mainstream institutions and corporations for
years have marginalized and ridiculed agroecology, today
they are trying to capture it. They want to take what is useful
to them – the technical part – and use it to fine tune industrial
agriculture, while conforming to the monoculture model and to
the dominance of capital and corporations in structures of power.
