Sustain member the Landworkers’ Alliance are marching for the ‘right to good food’ in London on Sunday 14 October.
Why Landworkers' Alliance are marching?
We all have a right to good food – it’s a basic human right!
As the UK prepares to leave the European Union and the Agriculture Bill is being finalised we need to ensure farmers are able to produce nutritious ecological, healthy food and everybody has guaranteed access to it.
On Sunday 14th October 2018 there will be a march in London calling for a post-Brexit agriculture policy that guarantees good food and good farming in the UK!
Anyone who grows, distributes, prepares or eats food – together all of us have a stake in the food system. Whether you are worker in the food system, parents wanting affordable, nutritious food for your children, or you want to support farming that produces good food and works in harmony with the earth, this is a critical time for us all to come together. It’s our biggest opportunity to make our voices hear as the future of our food system in the UK is decided.
What they are calling for?
- Communities to have access to local, affordable, healthy food -
- Support for ecological farming -
- High animal welfare standards -
- Protection of the biodiversity of our countryside -
- Ending the use of agro-toxins -
Meet at 11.30 am Parliament Square Westminster, London SW1P 3JX.
The march will proceed along a direct route to the Bargehouse Gallery in South Bank (Oxo Tower Wharf, Barge House St, London SE1 9PH).
Events throughout the day
The march will end at the Bargehouse where the international ‘We Feed the World’ exhibition is running. The exhibition is a global photography initiative capturing the triumphs and tribulations of 50 farming communities across six continents, including the stories of UK based farmers. At the venue there will be an afternoon of workshops and talks about how we can all organize for a better food system. There will also be a ‘disco soup’ lunch so bring ingredients to contribute to the pot!
If you have any questions or would like to help the Landworkers’ Alliance organise get in touch with Jyoti at email@example.com The march will also be connected to the Good Food marches being held across Europe throughout October.
