The importance of peasant farming

The MPP fights to promote peasant farming. But why is this choice so important ? What are the food issues today, and what are our responsibilities.

In the aftermath of the hunger riots, we need to open our eyes. Agro-fuel versus food production ; GMO versus biodiversity, large multinational export companies versus small local producers, commercial monopolies versus citizen democracy, famine and dependency versus security and food self-sufficiency, financial speculation versus vital supplies, water and soil pollution versus agroecology, land speculation and and expropriations versus access to land for living purposes; these are choices that concern all poor communities and indeed the future of all humankind, rural and urban.

All over the world, food and farming are issues that concern us all!
