The “Good Food Good Farming“ campaign which the SIP Forum has signed up to continues!
It has encouraged local groups and organizations to organize events that are specific to their local area and many different types of group have become involved. On the weekend of 27-28 October rallies were held in several major European cities, in association with around 70 events in 19 different countries during October, ranging from marches to meetings with ministers, from film festivals to farmers’ markets. The two days at the end of the month were the occasion for initiatives of varying degrees of creativity and impact.
It it worth bearing in mind also that other events took place which were not communicated to the campaign organizers.
The action does not stop here. On 19 November the demands that emerged from the campaign and during the 2 days in October were presented to the Council of Ministers of Agriculture. Their message is to say no to industrial farming and yes to sustainable farming that is fair and healthy for producers, consumers and the environment and humane towards animals.
