Call of civil society organizations to their governments on the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in Africa

3 June 2015 [FR]

We, social movements, grassroots organizations and civil society organizations engaged in the defense of food sovereignty and the right to food in Africa, met at the World Social Forum in Tunis in March 2015 to unite those opposing the G8 “New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition”. Social movements and organizations from Africa shared their experiences and analysis about the impacts of the New Alliance in their countries and participants from all over the world agreed to support their struggles against this threat to food sovereignty and agro-ecology. As such, we joined the Global Convergence of Land and Water Struggles and adopted its Declaration. This statement reflects our discussions and our demands to governments engaged in the New Alliance and expresses support for the call on the G7 Presidency made by the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa. 2 – See more at: http://farmlandgrab.org/post/view/25006-call-of-civil-society-organizations-to-their-governments-on-the-new-alliance-for-food-security-and-nutrition-in-africa#sthash.LmEXf1QA.dpuf
