Delegation Report: Food Sovereignty & Agroecology in Nicaragua Delegation: January 3rd – 13th, 2019
From January 3 to January 13, 2019, Friends of the ATC — a solidarity network that supports Nicaragua’s Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo (Rural Workers’ Association) — hosted its “Food Sovereignty & Agroecology in Nicaragua” delegation which was co-sponsored by the Nicaragua Network/Alliance for Global Justice. 25 people from the United States, Canada, and Germany convened to learn first-hand how peasants in Nicaragua are building a society based on food sovereignty, agroecology, feminism, socialism, and anti-imperialism.
The ATC has been at the forefront of these fights for decades, organizing in Nicaragua since before the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution and also helping found La Via Campesina, an international peasant movement which now exists in 82 countries around the world.
