Food Sovereignty Event
9th October 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Global Justice Now are holding an event examining food sovereignty, with speakers, a photo exhibition and stalls from relevant organisations.
Farida Akhter will be the key speaker – a Bangladeshi campaigner who is going to give evidence at the Hague against Monsanto who are being put in the docks for ‘eco-cide’ in a mock trial this October. Farida is also the founder of one of the biggest seed banks in the world. Farida will give a talk about her work, and then people will have a chance to look around the photo exhibition Global Justice Now have commissioned showing the impacts of Monsanto in Bangladesh and India. There will also be a number of stalls from organisations showing the more environmentally friendly alternatives to corporate controlled food systems, and how people can get more involved in these alternatives.
Contact Global Justice Now for more information and to attend.
