Seeding Reparations: Making the UK’s food corporations pay

In a time of multiple food system and societal crises, progressive actors can see years of hard work campaigning, piloting new systems, and researching new policy solutions wiped out instantaneously. Reactionary politics is driving the abandonment and obstruction of long-term planning, in favour of further transfers of wealth to corporate interests. In the meantime, structural problems baked into our food system, and the resulting harms to human and environmental health, continue to exacerbate. Join Feedback and ETC to discuss how the acknowledgement of historical harm to people and planet by Big Ag will prove vital in countering the co-optation of public policy by disaster capitalists. Explore how the redress of historical harm by Big Ag might be central in pursuing food sovereignty, here and abroad. Build with us a collective understanding of how we might work together to reverse flows of public wealth and resources away from destructive industry to those harmed by it.
