NAWABSHAH -- Hari Welfare Association (HWA) and La Via Campesina have urged the newly elected PM Imran Khan and Ambassador to Switzerland Ahmad Warraich to support and vote in favor of the UN Declaration on Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas, which has been finalized after ten years of negotiations.
At the same time, more and more countries -- pushed by networks of small and medium-size farmers like La Via Campesina -- are actively shifting to policies and investments that support agroecological food systems.
The concept of food sovereignty was first used by Via Campesina, a peasant's movement group, which stated, "Food sovereignty is the right of each nation to maintain and develop its own capacity to produce its basic foods respecting cultural and productive diversity.
Las familias, que acostumbran recibir visitas de otras organizaciones afines que tambien conforman la Via Campesina, amablemente ofrecen sus hogares, esperando y valorando que quien se aloja, en este caso la investigadora, conozca de hecho su modo de vida acompanandolos en su rutina y vida social cotidiana.
incluso, puntualiza Correggia, el movimiento agricola La Via Campesina (https://viacampesina.org/es/?s= y https://youtu.be/ yYU18gheOU), en su Vil Conferencia mundial, senalo la existencia de un plan de desestabilizacion dirigido por los Estados Unidos, que "incluye, por una parte, la accion en la economia con el acaparamiento de productos y la destruccion de centros de almacenamiento y transporte para crear escasez, incrementar los precios y aumentar el costo de la vida de las personas de ingreso mas modesto (...)".
Organizados en varias asociaciones de caracter local, nacional (Contag, (9) MST, (10) en Brasil) e internacional (Via Campesina (11)), las comunidades campesinas revelan su tenacidad en la lucha por el acceso a la tierra y por la preservacion de sus cuadros de vida comunitaria y de solidaridad "aldeana", asumiendo la condicion de protagonistas en la resistencia a las formas ampliadas de la reproduccion del capital.
Pressure continues to come, however, from organizations like the Catholic Church's Comissao Pastoral da Terra (Pastoral Land Commission, CPT), Caritas Internationalis, La Via Campesina, traditional Protestant churches, and newer Presbyterian and Pentecostal groups.
7- Dans l'avenir, envisagez-vous d'adherer a des mouvements comme celui de " Semences paysannes " en France ou le mouvement paysan international "La Via Campesina" qui defend les droits des petits exploitants a echanger, exploiter et vendre leurs semences ?
Global economic interdependence and peasant resistance in a globalized world: the experience of international Via Campesina
Las acciones del ecologismo de los pobres estan intimamente articuladas con otros movimientos, como el de la soberania alimentaria, cuyas propuestas provienen inicialmente del movimiento internacional La Via Campesina. Dichos colectivos sostienen entre sus premisas que la recuperacion de la agricultura campesina es esencial para la conservacion de los bienes comunes y de la biodiversidad, asi como para la lucha contra la pobreza.
Por su parte, desde las organizaciones sociales globales, como Amnistia Internacional u Oxfam Internacional, y las redes transnacionales de organizaciones sociales, como Red Birregional Enlazando Alternativas o Via Campesina, la Responsabilidad Social Empresarial esta siendo utilizada como un espacio de confrontacion desde el que abrir vias para el desarrollo de practicas en las que el tejido social local coparticipe en la regulacion de las actuaciones empresariales y en la cogestion de la devolucion de parte de los beneficios que obtienen las companias como resultado de sus procesos de internacionalizacion.
