Year: 2009

Language: English (Available in French and Spanish)

Content: Almost
 half
 of
 the
 people
 in
 the
 world
 are
 peasants.
 
 Even
 in
 the
 high‐tech
 world,

people 
eat 
food 
produced 
by 
peasants.
 Small‐scale 
agriculture 
is 
not 
just 
an 
economic

activity; 
it 
means 
life 
for
 many 
people.
 
The
se curity 
of 
the 
population 
depends 
on 
the 

well‐being
 of
 peasants
 and
 sustainable
 agriculture.
 To
 protect
 human
 life
 it
 is

important
 to
 respect,
 protect
 and
 fulfill
 the
 rights
 of
 the
 peasants.
 In
 reality,
 the

ongoing 
violations 
of 
peasants'
 rights 
threaten 
human
 life.
