Our next meeting will be on 10th January at 7:30 PM in Oxford Town Hall. New members are always wlecome, feel free to come along and find out what campaigns and events we’ll be focusing on in the new year
A special meeting with film showings (technology permitting!) and a social meet in the pub. As usual, we’re meeting in a wheelchair-accessible room at Oxford Town Hall. Non-members and new members are very welcome.
The UK government is complicit in the “corporate takeover” of Africa’s food systems – but smallholder farmers are fighting back. Come along and find out more.
Tanzania is a country at forefront of the global battle for control over our food. On one side corporations are lining up to seize control over the country’s land, seeds and soil. On the other side passionate small-scale farmers are strengthening their networks and deepening pre-existing knowledge in an attempt to keep control of their resources
Staff members from campaigning group Global Justice Now travelled to Tanzania to meet farmers who are turning their backs on expensive chemical fertiliser and corporate-owned seeds and are instead increasing their crop yields through organic farming. This work sends a clear message that schemes like the G7’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition are not only unhelpful, but unnecessary. We should instead be supporting the smallholder farmers who produce the majority of Africa’s food.
Come along and meet those who went to Tanzania, watch a short film about what they got up to, and discuss food issues with people involved in the struggle for a fairer food system both overseas and here in the UK.
April 12th, 7.30, Oxford Town Hall (St Aldate’s Room). For more information, contact email@example.com.
