First Fossil Free Agriculture Campaign Open Meeting:
ASEED Europe is calling on all interested people to join an open campaign meeting on Sunday June 17th in Amsterdam. During this meeting we will speak about launching a new Fossil Free Agriculture campaign. The goal of this campaign is to help build a powerful emancipatory movement from below for a sustainable and just food system. The central question to be discussed in the meeting is which steps we can take in the Netherlands to expose the Exxon’s and Shell’s of the industrial food system. Thursday June 28th we will come together again to decide on the next steps and actions after the summer.
