Action map 2020

Mapping all events from the GFGF Action month in October 2020


Join us to raise the alarm for Good food and good farming!

European policies influence what we eat: 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 young entrants
  • food policies that promote biodiversity, protect the environment and mitigate climate change
  • no GMOs and reduce dependency on chemical inputs at large
  • animal welfare and fewer, higher-quality animal products
  • reverse the decline of bees, birds and other animals needed for sustainable agriculture and healthy ecosystems
  • more participatory political processes

#FutureOfCAP #EUGreenDeal #EUFarm2Fork

Yesterday was #ShineOnIndiaFarmers. At ECVC, and @via_campesina we stand in solidarity with Indian farmers who have been protesting for more than 50 days, asking the government to withdraw 3 controversial laws that would corporatise India's agricultural sector. #foodsovereignty

Thanks @corporateeurope for revealing the true colours of the big ag lobby who want to prevent the transformation of our food and farming systems and keep destroying the ecosystems they rely on. Hope MEPs will not be so short sighted and put the public interest first #EUFarm2Fork

Commission vice-president @TimmermansEU underlines that we have a very limited window of opportunity to address the impacts of our food system.

We need to accelerate change in the way we eat, to protect our climate & biodiversity.
