Culminating protest to European Parliament

On 22 October 2019, we gathered with 1,000 protesters from various European countries in Strasbourg to sound the alarm for #GoodFoodGoodFarming. We delivered more than 2,000 postcards from Europeans to the Members of the European Parliament, asking them to act upon our demands for a fair, green and healthy agricultural reform. Find links to the open letter and photo impressions below.
