Come and join us to march for a future of Good Food, Good Farming on 15th October in Parliament Square! Now is the time to build a healthier, more resilient and sustainable, and a fairer food system for all.
Organised by the Landworkers’ Alliance, and supported by Sustain and a coalition of organisations, we will be marching on Westminster to call for Government and others to take action to tackle our broken food system.
Now, more than ever, we need to create a future for farming and food that will be more resilient to economic and climate shocks, which puts health and fairness for all people front and centre, and which embeds tackling the climate and nature crisis at its heart.
Currently, the system is failing: farmers and growers receive unfair prices and experience unfair trading practices from large retailers; food and farming workers are some of the lowest paid in the UK; the system promotes junk food over a healthier diet; intensive and monocultural farming is a considerable contributor to climate and nature degradation; and food poverty is a serious problem for millions of people living in the UK.
The Government and many parliamentarians are doing little to address these issues.
We need them to take action!
The coalition of organisations on the Good Food, Good Farming march, are calling for:
- A legally enshrined Right to Food
- Ambitious agricultural support policies
- Better livelihoods for farmers
- Protecting standards in trade deals
- Nature-friendly policies
- Regulation of GMOs
- Fair wages and decent working conditions
- Greater support for new entrants
- More community food growing spaces
- A less and better approach to meat and dairy
- Boost domestic production of fruit and veg
- Listen to the people
