Agriculture as a Weapon of Domination
Webinar at 7 pm CT USA, Wed, Nov 3, 2021
(If you join from India, 5:30 am, Thurs, Nov 4, 2021)

Hear from ...

• Wes Jackson, The Land Institute
• Asa Anpu, AAPDEP South Africa Director
• Nely Rodriguez, Coalition of Immokalee Workers
• Jaideep Hardikar, People's Archive of Rural India

Moderator Delilah Barrios hosts "As All Get Out" on The Populist Voice channel.

The webinar will begin with Wes Jackson explaining the 10,000-year-old problem of agriculture: cultivation of annual grain crops which compromise soil ecosystems and organic matter. Perennial grain crops and cropping systems can make food-producing ecosystems as resilient as natural ecosystems. Asa Anpu will cover what colonialism means to the colonized, especially with regards to food deserts imposed by settler “farmers” on Black people within South Africa and how the Uhuru Movement is challenging this. Nely Rodriguez will share how a small group of farmworkers joined with the Fair Food Program to completely change conditions of their labor, from eliminating wage theft to modern-day slavery. US allies can support farmworker rights through the Boycott of Wendy's. Jaideep Hardikar will address problems facing small and marginal farmers who comprise 83% of India farm households, commercialization of the countryside due to steady withdrawal of state support, and the growing network of people's collectives and agro-ecological approaches.
