National Day of Action: Monday, Feb. 27, 2012
Whereas- corporate control of our food systems has increasingly harmed people, our ecosystems and our climate
Whereas- many people in many places are reclaiming our food supply by creating localized food systems that practice fair and ecological principles
Whereas- united, our food movements can reach a scale required to challenge the corporate food regime that has prioritized profit over health and sustainability
Whereas- to create healthy local food systems globally we must both create the alternatives we are calling for and resist the corporate and political forces creating toxic, GMO, unhealthy
Whereas- local organic food systems & agroecology hold more hope for meeting our world’s food needs than corporate food regimes profiting from speculation and land grabs for exports
Whereas- we stand in solidarity with Indigenous communities and communities around the world that are struggling against hunger, exploitation, and unfair labor practices that benefit only the 1%
Whereas- we all have to eat, and we don’t want to eat corporate crud
Be It Resolved by (this GA/organization/group/farm/family/person/you):
We endorse/will participate in a shared, decentralized National Day of Action on Monday, February 27:
We will occupy our food supply by highlighting either how we the 99% are creating healthy, local, sustainable food systems, or how we are resisting the corporate food regime, the 1%.
We can make our own media and share our day of action, our stories or pictures with others taking action to stand up and be counted as our food movements unite and grow stronger to resist corporate exploitation of the stuff of life.
We challenge corporate power and corporate personhood. We will demonstrate real humanity and our commitment to food system alternatives that work for everyone, globally.
