The Convergence of Peasant Struggles Worldwide

The Convergence of Peasant Struggles Worldwide | Deepening (Not Just) Food Democracy | Scoop.it
A plethora of problems face Southern and Northern family agricultures in the current neo-liberal era of financial capital domination worldwide, and has paved the way for the revival of peasant struggles for their social emancipation and legitimate right of access to land and food. Obviously, such struggles also concern all categories of workers and people because what is at stake is the challenge to reach food sovereignty and to build our societies at the local, national and global levels, on the principles of social justice, equality and real democracy.
