Two thousand people rallied in the East Timorese capital of Dili on October 17 to demand food sovereignty for East Timor. The demonstration was the culmination of three days of activities to mark World Food Day.
The majority of the demonstrators were university students who joined farmers from different districts and sub-districts. Protesters marched to Parliament House and Government House, taking MPs and government officials by surprise.
The protesters continued on to the ministry of agriculture building, which a delegation of farmers’ representatives entered to present their demands to the minister. These included increasing production and supply of food through sustainable agriculture and government policies prioritising community autonomy, environmental stewardship and cultural integrity.

Forum on Food Sovereignty in Korea: “Building and strengthening alliance with Korean organizations for food sovereignty”
Seoul, July 2007
In the first week of July 2007, La Via Campesina (LVC) invited by the Korean Peasant League (KPL) and the Korean Woman Peasant Association (KWPA) took part in the Korean Social forum. LVC delegation consisted of CNOP Mali, Confédération Paysanne (France), ANFPA Nepal, AOP Thailand, FSPI Indonesia, NOUMINREN Japan, CANEZ Venezuela. During the Social Forum, one day was dedicated to an international forum on food sovereignty.
For us in La Via Campesina, our Korean members are a great source of inspiration when we look at their struggle for Food Sovereignty, Korean Reunification, against FTA US-Korea, and the hard struggle against WTO in Cancun and Hong Kong 2005.
