During the second half of 2023, between 1 July and 31 December, Spain will hold the Presidency of the European Union Council. In this context, on 4 and 5 September, the Agriculture Ministers of the EU will meet in Córdoba (Spain). And this leads us to make this appeal to tell them that we have had enough:
For a fair and sustainable agri-food model and a living rural world.
Food and peasant sovereignty NOW!
Faced with the Agriculture Ministers’ meeting on 4 September, we tell them that we are fed up with:
That is why we want to let the EU agriculture ministers know that we need:

This camp will work on two complementary axes: 1) strategies and techniques of non-violent direct action (NVDA) within the food movement, and 2) articulation of the food movement. Each of these axes has its own activities, whose aims are to increase the mobilization and activation of the agri-food movement in the forms of collective action and advocacy, as well as in the articulation of the organisations involved in the food sovereignty and agroecology movement. NVDA’s training activities will consist of various workshops on the theory and practice of actions, civil disobedience tactics, teamwork and legal issues. The articulation of organisations will be developed through future scenarios and the projection of collective strategies.
At the same time, we will have more relaxed (but full of intention and experience) moments such as the “Conversatories”: spaces for collective reflection and dialogue based on the presentation of some experiences and mobilization processes of the food sovereignty and agroecology movement. These are open spaces to all participants, in which we can share and discuss.
On Saturday, taking advantage of the Ecomercado de Córdoba, led by the agroecological producers of Córdoba, we will go to the city to meet them.
And on Monday, as a climax, we will take the opportunity that the EU Agriculture Ministers’ meeting will take place in Cordoba to tell them: THAT’S AS FAR AS WE’VE COME!

- Morning: Arrival of the first participants.
