17th April - International Day of Peasant Struggle

Cool poster
Just thought you might like to know that tomorrow, Wednesday 17th April is the "International Peasant's Struggle " day, world wide and that the Scottish Crofting Federation is a member of Via Campesina, the international peasant organisation.

Why?.... well 70 percent of the global population is fed by peasant farmers and in many countries they are having their land grabbed by governments and business corporations.

One of the aims is to reclaim the food system that has been occupied by trans national capital.....the same people who brought you the "pony burger".

Have a look at the website  http://viacampesina.org
