Capital is appropriating our territories. Hence, we must respond by turning the struggle for land into a struggle for territory.
This will require forging unions between –on one side– peasant farmers, day laborers, indigenous peoples, nomad shepherds, artisan fishermen, forest peoples and other rural communities, and –on another– city dwellers, especially those in suburban communities and consumers.
It will require producing healthy food using agroecology and know-how handed down from our ancestors and steeped in popular traditions.
We must show that land in community hands is better for society and Mother Earth than land which is at the mercy of capital.
