"In a democracy, corporations should not write the laws"- Vandana Shiva.
Around the world, citizens are protesting the control of corporations over decision making on food and agriculture, such as in the negotiations on the EU-US free trade agreement (TTIP). At the same time, many successful initiatives emerge where people take food systems back into their own hands. This video presents the views of world famous author Vandana Shiva, UN Rapporteur Olivier De Schutter, Hanny van Geel (La Via Campesina), Nina Holland (CEO) and Jan Douwe van der Ploeg (Wageningen University).
"We are in transition processes, where farmer seeds are an act of resistance, where every consumer that you convince about the value of agroecological food is an act of resistance. These forms of resistance are connected and can become very strong movements." - Jan Douwe van der Ploeg
The video was recorded during the 2014 Voedsel Anders conference in Wageningen University, Netherlands. See voedselanders.nl for more information.
