Food Movements Unite ! : Strategies to Transform Our Food System
“The corporate food regime dominating our planet’s food system is environmentally destructive, financially volatile and socially unjust.” This is the opening sentence of Eric Holt-Gimenez’s introduction. The book presents the views of farmers’ unions, consumer groups, NGOs and community organisations that are committed to food justice, food democracy and food sovereignty. This book seeks to derive “the new norm” from the fragmented collection of hopeful alternatives so as to further the
organisation of local food movements into global alliances. The book includes chapters by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, leaders from La Via Campesina and the MST, and the president of the Millennium Institute.
