Climate and Film: La Via Campesina - the peasant movement for food sovereignty
For spring, RE-SET (the Platform social-ecological transformation) has prepared a continuation of the series of film nights called Roots of the Climate Justice Movement. This time it will focus on movements from the Global South. Over the course of four evenings, you will see films chronicling the history of the climate justice movement, accompanied by open discussion among all participants on selected topics.
The film nights will be held irregularly (save the dates, see below) starting on February 22, always on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. The screenings will take place at the Zdena Community Centre in Prague (Tusarova 41) and at the Tři Ocásci café in Brno.
What does food sovereignty mean? How is it different from food security? Who is advocating today for the right to healthy food grown through fair and organic process?
The peasant movement is an integral part of climate justice. The global movement La Via Campesina, which is particularly anchored in the global South, calls for food justice and promotes concepts of organic farming. It opposes the interests of agricultural corporations that profit from industrial agriculture and control most of the world's food market.
The story of the La Via Campesina movement is the subject of the third spring film night on the history of the climate justice movement. We'll play the film Globalize Hope.
We will meet on Wednesday, April 12 at 7:00 pm at the Zdena Community Center in Prague (Tusarova 41). The film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by a group discussion.
