International Day of Peasants’ Struggle

banner-17april1

Today, on this International Day of Peasants’ Struggle, let us remember the farmers, farmworkers, indigenous, and fisherfolk who have given their lives for the struggle, and let us lend our voices and strength to those who continue to struggle for a better world with good food for all – and justice for those who produce it.

For info on the 100+ events taking place across the globe in commemoration of this day, visit Via Campesina’s site.  For info on the main US action, which is taking place in Chicago, visit Family Farm Defenders’ site.

Globalicemos la lucha, globalicemos la esperanza!
