Eating in a Time of War: Food crisis or distribution crisis? Analysis and proposals by La Via Campesina

Although the media do not always tell us, we live in a time of multiple wars and conflicts. Globally, wars are causing food, energy and health emergencies and thousands of people are fleeing for refuge. This situation requires extraordinary measures to feed populations, but also efforts to rebuild food sovereignty in every country and region. We hear that there is a food crisis because food is lacking and prices are soaring, while new technologies and free-trade are called to save us. We hear that we need to produce more and better. Do we? In this session, we will hear a peasant perspective on eating and producing food in a time of war and how conflicts affect farmers and the right to food. We will hear experiences from different countries and draw a counter, peasant-led solution for a world in peace with food for everyone.
