Nyéléni Newsletter: Migration and Food Sovereignty

The new edition of the Nyéléni Newsletter is now online!

The so-called migration crisis has taken a highly tragic turn. Many escape due to the violence of the wars of occupation, others do so because of the disasters of the climate crisis and many more because of the inequities of this voracious and savage capitalist system.

For our part, the Collective on Migrations of La Vía Campesina proposes to understand migration as an act of resistance by the dispossessed.

When human beings leave their families, their communities and their lands, they are challenging the system that has condemned them to disappear as peasants, as indigenous people, as women, as people of color, as youth, as another culture, as a community and as a people.

By understanding migration in this way, we recognize in the struggle of La Via Campesina the key role of migrants and their potential as actors of change.
