On June 27th, the UN Human Rights Council Assembly passed a resolution authorizing the continuation of the process of drafting an international declaration on the rights of peasants and other people working in rural areas. The declaration project originated with the Via Campesina, and it is the fruit of ten years of work on the part of this international movement which is comprised of more than 164 organizations in 73 countries.
