The new edition of the Nyéléni Newsletter is now online!
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the historic International Forum on Food Sovereignty that was held Mali in 2007.
Nyéléni has since become a space of praxis, to convene, synergise and build forces to strengthen the different conditions for food sovereignty. As the paradigm of food sovereignty has expanded, so too have threats against it.
These threats are being confronted at multiple fronts and levels by the growing global movement for food sovereignty.
The recurring crises the world is facing are inherent to capitalism which is adept at re-inventing itself to maintain structural power. Tinkering with the wiring of the capitalist model will do little good.
What is needed is deep systemic change, a complete paradigm shift from competitiveness to solidarity, from extractivism to respect and from exploitation to dignity. This is the paradigm of food sovereignty, which the global movement is advancing through diverse knowledge, capacities, resources and social bases.
