The VIIth International Conference of La Vía Campesina, gathered in Basque Country from the 16th to the 24th of July of 2017, stands in solidarity against the grave situation of the violation of peasants, indigenous people, and Garifunas, where currently there are more than 6,000 peasants charged in court that include 1,700 women, more than 100 assassinations (8 peasant women assassinated), 17 political prisoners in struggle for land and agrarian reform. Due to the tenacious repression and constant assassinations, we are also in solidarity with the struggle of the Honduran indigenous people, women, youth, and students, and we also extend our solidarity to the family of Berta Cáceres, which from our conference we demand justice.
We place ourselves in solidarity with the Honduran people in their struggle for the democratization of the country, defense of natural goods, territories, public education and access to justice, resources which should not be privatized nor conceded.
All of the organizations of La Via Campesina International of 12 regions of the world are on permanent alert to denounce and stand in solidarity with the Honduran people and especially with the Honduran peasantry, indigenous peoples, and Garifunas.
WE FEED OUR PEOPLES AND BUILD OUR MOVEMENT TO CHANGE THE WORLD
