European Days of Action

OCT. 27/28   2018

Europe’s food and farming system is broken. Now, with the reform of the EU’s agricultural policy 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 will raise the alarm to stop industrial agriculture with the European Days of Action on 27th and 28th of October 2018. People all over Europe will grab their pots and join demonstrations, picnics, markets, festivals and all kinds of events demanding a sustainable transition of food and farming!

Join us on October 27/28 to raise the alarm for Good food and good farming!

2018 is a vital moment for the future of our food in Europe: every year €60 billion of taxpayers’ money is distributed to farmers through the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Right now, the biggest farmers get the most money. But a reform of the policy is underway, and many other laws are being discussed at the same time, affecting the way we farm and what we eat. Now is the time to stand up and be heard!

We want:

  • access to tasty, nutritious and culturally appropriate food for all
  • re-localisation of food production, processing and consumption
  • food sovereignty and fair world trade
  • a CAP reform that is socially just, sustainable, supports living rural areas and does not harm other countries
  • fair income and decent work conditions for farmers, land workers, pastoralists and fishers
  • a better future in rural communities and in the city
  • many more people in farming and opportunities for youth
  • food policies that promote biodiversity, protect the environment and mitigate climate change
  • no GMOs
  • animal welfare and fewer, better-quality animal products
  • more bees, birds and other animals beneficial to sustainable agriculture
  • more participatory political processes
