Activate Resistance against Monocultures

A video produced by Radio Mundo Real, in collaboration with the Alliance for Biodiversity, Friends of the Earth Latin America and the Caribbean, and the World Rainforest Movement, shows how the advancement of the industrial monoculture model of agribusiness, which is displacing people and degrading land, has generated fierce resistance. The main driver of the monoculture model is the profit motive, which is incompatible with the defence of biodiversity, the health of rural and indigenous people, and the right to food sovereignty. Local communities are resisting by re-occupying their territories, planting a variety of crops and developing their own cultural expressions. They are, of course, not exempt from threats and risks.
