Astute Westender readers will remember our June article about Food Connect travelling to Jakarta for the 6th international La Vía Campesina conference which is all about giving control of agriculture back to the farmer.

While the La Via Campesina movement was formed in support of peasants in poor countries whose governments have sided with global agribusiness giants, many Australian farmers have found themselves facing similar problems.

We provide here for you the presentation to the conference by Food Connect’s Luke Speghen. It is reproduced here by permission of Food Connect.
