Worldwide there are about 3 billion peasants, tenant farmers, campesinos, fisherfolk and other small scale and subsistence agricultural producers. These communities are engaged in some of the most intense and transformative struggles in the world today, especially where organized communities are exercising their sovereignty and cultivating the land collectively. They frequently face brutal violence and repression from landlords, agribusiness, corporate mining interests, tourist enterprises and from neocolonial and imperialist states. The struggle for the land is not only a struggle for liberation from colonial and class oppression, but also a key to building a sustainable and just food system in harmony with the natural environment .
Cafe Rebelde invites you to hear from about the struggle for the land on unceded Indigenous territories in so-called B.C., Mexico and the Philippines. Enjoy delicious food, discussion and music.
