Mozambique: Action in defense of peasants’ right to food

The organization Fian International – for the right to adequate food, began an action in October 2012 to end on 30 April 2013 in defense of peasant communities in Niassa province in Mozambique who have lost access to land used for food production and to natural forests and thus are facing food insecurity and violations of their right to food due to the establishment of large-scale tree plantations promoted and financed by Sweden.

FIAN invites to take URGENT ACTION, by writing to the Swedish government to demand that it conducts a human rights assessment of its development aid to Mozambique, that it regulates investors operating from Sweden and that it introduces a monitoring mechanism to track business enterprises’ activities.
