The Polish Peasant Vs the Corporate Cabal

Outline

Julian Rose is an organic farmer in South Oxfordshire and Jadwiga Lopata a Polish peasant farmer in Malopolska Province and director of ECOCENTRE ICPPC. They are cofounders of The Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside – ICPPC (2000). They joined forces out of a common desire to help turn around the precarious fate of one and a half million Polish small farmers finding themselves face to face with an unprecedented dual threat: the corporatisation of the mixed family farm and European Union ‘death by technocracy’. In their shared talk they will tell of the amazing events which unfolded in this 21st century David and Goliath story.
