Europe’s food and farming system is broken. This year, with a new European Parliament and Comission, and the reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) under way, we have a real chance to stir it up. We want a system, which supports small farmers and rural livelihoods, protects our soil, water, ecosystems and biodiversity, does not contribute to climate change or animal suffering and provides healthy food for all.
We call on groups and individuals all over Europe to grab their pots and pans and organize demonstrations, picnics, markets, festivals and all kinds of events for the European Days of Action between 1st and 31st of October 2019. And to add their protest postcard to the bulk of messages we will deliver to the European Parliament on october 22 in Strasbourg.
In 2018, we started the initiative with more than 60 events (you can find them on the map below) in 19 countries. Let’s make the Action Days even louder and more colourful this year!
