Join The Food Sovereignty Revolution at the World Family Calabash in Brighton on October 20th 2011. Venue: Friends Meeting House in Ship Street, Brighton. Doors will open at 6pm and talks start at 6.30.
Message from Jocelyn Jones of World Family: “We welcome you to come and discuss the future of our food, locally and globall. We especially invite activists, organisers, growers, transitioners, students and anyone who is concerned about good food, health and justice here and in the wider world.
A panel of distinguished speakers from four continents: Colin Tudge ( Campaign for Real Farming, UK), Hellen Yego (NGOMA Campaign, Kenya), Sarath Fernando (MONLAR, Sri Lanka) and Dr Roberto Caballero (ACTAF, Cuba) and our own Sue Dibb, chair of the B&H Food Partnership, will be sharing their experience and expertise in Brighton on October 20th.
The discussion will focus on Food Sovereignty – the right of peoples to democratically define their own food and agricultural systems without harming other people or the environment – what is already happening and what are the next steps we need to take to attain it. There will be time to discuss the issues with the speakers, enjoy good food and – to round off the evening – dance to the music and songs of Luke Concannon (Nizlopi).
Tickets are £6/£5 (not including food). Best for us if you can reserve a seat by contacting Jocelyn on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01273 702847 – but tickets will also be available on the door.”
