Women’s Struggle: for Food Sovereignty; against violence and agribusiness!

PeM_campesinasThe international network of peasants, La Via Campesina, calls for the coordination of actions during the International Women’s Day to highlight the fundamental role played by women in guaranteeing Food Sovereignty. On this day of struggle, it denounces the prevailing violence, against women specifically, because the agribusiness model, patriarchy and the capitalist interests in the countryside have exacerbated social and gender inequalities. In this context, Food Sovereignty is key not only as a means of confronting the food crisis but also as an essential ethical principle that has as its basis social justice and equality.
