On this day of action #25N23, together with organised and rebellious women from all over the world, we will call for a day of mobilisation, training and exchange, with forums, direct actions, fairs and other events.
In this era of growing neo-fascism, La Via Campesina cannot ignore any type of violence. Taking a stance against discrimination, persecution and criminalization of people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities means strengthening a project of a livable future for the planet and humanity
At its core, Food Sovereignty defends the right to healthy and culturally appropriate food, produced sustainably and ecologically. It empowers people to define their own food and agriculture systems, ensuring small-scale food producers’ control over essential resources such as land, water, seeds and biodiversity.
This assembly will bring together young members from various backgrounds, including peasants, indigenous people, fishers, pastoralists, agricultural workers, migrants, and landless youth. As representatives of La Via Campesina’s youth, they advocate for the peasant alternative, founded on the principles of peasant agroecology.
The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP), adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2018, is a landmark declaration that recognises the rights of peasants and their unique relationship with nature.

We’re thrilled to unveil our official song for the 8th International Conference, igniting passion and unity in our incredible peasant movement. The global peasant movement La Vía Campesina convenes this conference in Bogotá, Colombia, from 1 to 8 December 2023.
The International Women’s Assemblies have been a very important collective and strategic construction in these 30 years of La Via Campesina. From their territories, peasant women write a history of struggling against capitalism, colonialism, agribusiness, patriarchy, racism and the advance of fascism in the world.
La Via Campesina has over 200 million members in more than 80 countries. There are three levels within La Via Campesina. The member organizations, which include unions, cooperatives, or associations, form the first level. Then, all these organizations are grouped by region, with nine regions in La Via Campesina. These nine regions together constitute La Via Campesina. Every four years, a conference is organized to decide the working priorities for the next four years. The next conference will be held in Colombia in December. We expect 500 delegates from all over the world.
