Newsletter: ECVC’s work on rural workers and migration

18 August 2023

The Rural Workers & Migration working group publishes today its third newsletter. Have a look at our actions regarding the support of agricultural workers’ struggles, commercial pressure towards distributors and European Coordination Via Campesina (ECVC) trade unions’ mutual support. Thank you for sharing the newsletter and the call to mobilisation against agroindustry in Cordóba in September.


Spain – Training and Activism Camp of the Food Sovereignty Movement

In the second half of 2023, the Spanish Government will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. In this context, on 4 and 5 September, the heads of the ministries of agriculture across the European Union will meet in Cordoba.

From 31 August to 4 September, in Cordoba, we will participate as ECVC in a counter-summit with various groups involved in the transformation of the agri-food model to move towards food sovereignty. We will tell them that we have had enough of the EU’s neoliberal policies, that the current food model based on agribusiness does not respect social and labour rights or planetary borders, and that we are tired that the right to food is not guaranteed for the entire population.

That is why we want to let EU agriculture ministers know that we need a radical change in public policies to support an agroecological production model, that we want more farmers in Europe, committed to family and sustainable models, and that healthy food environments that keep our villages and ecosystems alive must be promoted.

Since ECVC, our participation is important, this space being both a space of struggle, a space where we can make our demands to change agricultural and food policies, where we can think about the transition from an agro-industrial model in a territory to a peasant agro-ecological model and where we can forge alliances.
