Discussion 4 has come to an end!
Occupation of territories by foreign companies : impacts on local populations
Go to the page dedicated to this thematic discussion to consult the experiences, analyses and courses of action exchanged... And continue the discussion on the permanent forum!
We, peasant organizations and associations for the defense of the commons, which organize the Forum of Struggles for the Land, have been denouncing for decades the disastrous transformation of agri-food systems and its effects on the inhabitants of cities and the countryside, biodiversity and the climate.
We stand against the destruction of the pillars of our common world, namely peasants and fishing, pastoral and forestry communities and indigenous peoples.
