A month ago, the Korean government agreed with the US to place THAAD(Terminal High Altitude Air Defense) in a small and peaceful city of Seongju in South Korea, which will threaten peace in the world as well as South Korea and the North East Asia region, driving a new cold war.
This huge radar system, as a part of the US missile defense system(MD), designed to help the US hold hegemony in this region, will be only harmful to human health and the environment. A majority of the Korean people are absolutely opposed to this government's unilateral policy decision.

Several delegates comprising women, men, youth, and representing peasants and migrant agricultural and rural workers from several regions of La Via Campesina, will carry messages of global solidarity and food sovereignty at the 2016 World Social Forum this August. The Forum, which is a collective call for a sustainable and inclusive world, will be held in Montreal, Canada from the 9th to 14th.

In Montreal, our delegates will collectively organize and participate in sessions that would address the questions of agrarian reform, climate justice, peasant led research, alternatives to corporate controlled food systems, people’s sovereignty over corporate impunity, young peasants, the future of agriculture and many more.

The Landworkers' Alliance today announces eight key recommendations that will form the foundation of our post-Brexit representations to Defra and the Government's Environmental Audit Committee.
The task of creating a post-Brexit 'British Agricultural Policy' that support producers, protects the environment and prioritizes access to healthy, nutritious food for all is a complex but essential one. It represents a great opportunity if the government is ready to listen to the needs and desires of all stakeholders and put in place a truly long-term plan for resilience, equality and justice in food and farming.
