Statement from the People’s Movement Assembly on Food Sovereignty, US Social Forum 2010

Over a half-century ago, Mahatma Gandhi led a multitude of Indians to the sea to make salt—in defiance of the British Empire’s monopoly on this resource critical to people’s diet. The action catalyzed the fragmented movement for Indian independence and was the beginning of the end for Britain’s rule over India. The act of “making salt” has since been repeated many times in many forms by people’s movements seeking liberation, justice and sovereignty: Cesar Chavez, Nelson Mandela, and the Zapatistas are just a few of the most prominent examples. Our food movement— one that spans the globe—seeks food sovereignty from the monopolies that dominate our food systems with the complicity of our governments. We are powerful, creative, committed and diverse. It is our time to make salt.

A movement for food sovereignty – the people’s democratic control of the food system, the right of all people to healthy, culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems - is building from every corner of the globe.

Urban Improv of the Day: Multimedia artist Rune Madsen ‘s “People Watching Plus” takes the common practice of “people watching” and “adds an interactive element.”

Somewhat cruel, but fun to behold.

Whoa, that was interesting.

Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people that they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it.”
— John Henrik Clarke (via ne-plus-ultra)

A world of fast living and heavily processed foods is a toxic world. Our method of cooking food right down to the products we coat our skin in aids us in accomplishing a “toxitarian” lifestyle. This lifestyle can shorten our lifespan and create illness.
