Photos and testimony from the battle against global food corporations
This October, seed and pesticide corporation Monsanto is facing an international court in The Hague. While this is just a symbolic people’s court, the witnesses and judges are real. Witnesses from across the globe have been called because they have suffered human rights abuses, threats to their communities and destruction of their environment.
Come and hear from one of these witnesses, Farida Akhter, who is touring around the UK before travelling to the Hague for the tribunal. Farida is a Bangladeshi economist and founder of biggest collection of community seed banks in the world.
Global Justice Now has commissioned photo journalist Jordi Cirera to create a photo exhibition by visiting some of these witnesses in India and Bangladesh. His photos tell the stories of farmers who are fighting Monsanto to work out an alternative model of farming.
