The Jakarta Call - Call of the VI Conference of La Via Campesina

Jakarta, June 12, 2013 - We, La Vía Campesina, call rural and urban organizations and social movements to transform and build a new society based on food sovereignty and justice.

We gather here strengthened by the spirit of our friends and leaders and all those whose courage and commitment to our struggle inspires us. La Via Campesina, an international peasant movement gathers more than 200 million peasants, small-scale producers, landless, women, youth, indigenous, migrants, and farm and food workers, from 183 organizations and 88 countries. We are in here in Asia home to the majority of the world’s peasants to celebrate our first two decades of struggles.
