La Via Campesina’s electronic newsletter, September 2015 edition, is now available. Many articles in this newsletter highlight the various outcomes of meetings on Seed Treaty and international declaration on the rights of peasants held at FAO and UN Human Rights Council respectively. Other articles highlight on-going campaigns against many forms of injustices and policy bias against small family farms and peasants. Various actions organised for Peoples’ Food Sovereignty and against transnational corporations on the 16th October are also captured. On this day, La Vía Campesina issued a call, and together with GRAIN launched also an interesting video “Together, we can cool the planet!” on how the agroindustrial food system impacts our climate, and what we can do to change course. Included in this newsletter are two interesting publications: the first Nyeleni edition one region explores the relation between Food Justice and Food Sovereignty in the United States; and the report of the International Forum for Agroecology presents the small scale food producers’ first ever common vision on agroecology for Food Sovereignty to Governments assembled at the Committee on World Food Security. Download the newsletter, read and share it! Globalize the Struggle! Globalize Hope!
