Groundswell International, the Canastas Comunitarias and EkoRural, and the Partnership for Local Development in Haiti (a member of Groundswell) will appear in Eric Holt-Gimenez’s next book Food Movements Unite!
(Excerpt from http://www.foodmovementsunite.org/)
“In the first half of Eric Holt-Gimenez, Raj Patel and Annie Shattuck’s Food Rebellions: Crisis and the Hunger for Justice, the authors provide a trenchant analysis of the root causes of the global food crisis. The second half of the book is dedicated to exploring solutions to the crisis; both the false solutions advanced by the managers of the global corporate food regime, and the grassroots solutions—both practical and political—being advanced by the world’s food movements. Reflecting the transformative desire for just, sustainable, and democratically-controlled food systems, the book ends by stating: “The global food crisis has brought us together. We can end the injustices that cause hunger. There has never been a better time.”
Food Movements Unite! is the sequel to Food Rebellions and provides a sector by sector road map for bringing the tremendous transformative potential of the world’s food movements together into a powerful transnational force capable of ending the injustices that cause hunger.”
