We are at the 18th Edition of Free Land Camp (Acampamento Terra Livre ATL in Portuguese), after two years of virtual performance, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in which we lost many of our own. However, we continue with the forces of ancestry, getting back up to return to face-to-face actions with the theme: “Retaking Brazil: Demarcate the Territories and Indigenize the Politics”. This year, we will occupy the federal capital from April 4th to 14th.
A panel discussion with Alfredo Bini, Greg Moyer, Iain Levine, Paolo D’Odorico, and Saulo Araujo
International capital, multinational enterprises, and even some governments are increasingly taking control over farmland around the world. Large amount of highly productive land is taken away from farmers, mainly in developing countries but also within the EU and Central and Eastern Europe. The conference wishes to highlight the problem of land grabbing in the global food crisis and the human right to food, present existing alternative land management models and encourage decision makers to implement new instruments for sustainable land ownership models.Please register online before 5 March 2012.
