Rights for peasants and biodiversity for all

28/06/2016

Peasants are key to food security, the fight against climate change and the conservation of biodiversity security. CETIM struggles with La Vía Campesina for peasants’ rights. 

Peasants’ rights are systemically violated and they are subject to multiple discrimination. 80% of the people that suffer from hunger and extreme poverty live in rural areas.

We met Vincent Delobel, bio goatherd, member of La Vía Campesina. He speaks about European peasants’ situation. Vincent explains why it is important to have a Declaration on peasants’ rights.

 

Linked to this interview we recommend to read CETIM’s publication “The Right to Land”. Available in English, French and Spanish. It is available for free to social movements and organizations of the Global South. You can order this publication from the CETIM by email at contact@cetim.ch or by phone at +41 (0)22 731 59 63.
