VOKU: Climate Justice Voku X Block Bayer
Yet again 𝐀𝐒𝐄𝐄𝐃 invites you to be a part of the monthly climate justice voku at De Fabrieks Volkskamer.
As always we will share a 𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐥 (3 courses €6) before we go into the event of the evening.
This time we will introduce the 𝐁𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 action and how you can get involved.
𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐧? the 17th of April the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF SMALL FARM RESISTANCE
𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞? In Cologne where one of Bayer's pesticide production sites are located. Plus, there will be protests against Bayer all over the world.
𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭? Blockade of Bayer's hotspot of pesticide production in the Rhineland.
𝐖𝐡𝐲? Bayer is one of the biggest agrochemical companies in the world and they keep pushing toxics to farms all over the world which are both damaging for nature and humans. The fight for food sovereignty entails the shut down of big agribusiness .
500 million small farmers currently feed around 70% of the world's population - and only on a quarter of all arable land. Industrial agriculture, on the other hand, which is driven by a handful of profit-driven transnational companies like Bayer, takes up 75% of the arable land, but only produces food for a fraction of the people. Corporations like Bayer are constantly trying to expand their power through lobbying and neo-liberal trade agreements and are making small farmers and their farms increasingly dependent worldwide. To ensure their dominance, the companies export agrochemical poisons to all regions of the world - despite the fatal consequences for people, nature and farmers. Pesticides that are banned here are also exported to the Global South, where they poison nature and hundreds of thousands of people every year (fatally)
We are excited to see you all!
We open at 18:00 hrs & serve dinner from 19:00 hrs.
No reservations, just come on time.
