End corporate monopoly control! Fight for People’s Rights to Just, Equitable, Healthy, and Sustainable Food Systems!

“…we have gathered as the Global People’s Summit to expose and strongly counter the devious corporate agenda of the anti-people summit that is the UNFSS.

More importantly, as the Global People’s Summit, we declare that through the collective vigor and resolve of our communities and movements, we shall advance with unwavering enthusiasm the people’s demands for a food systems transformation that is truly built on justice, equitability, health, and sustainability.”

The current neoliberal food system is not working for us, for our people, and for our planet.

We are at a conjunction. Either we allow the perpetuation of such food systems or we rise up to transform it. For the deprived and famished, the choice is clear – the people are hungry for radical change.

So hungry, that the fight for just, equitable, healthy, and sustainable food systems has never stopped nor wavered – from local farming and indigenous communities standing up against landgrabs and destructive investment projects to advocates advancing sustainable ways to end hunger.

The Global People’s Summit (GPS) on Food Systems builds on all these struggles and asserts the people’s demands.

As a Global South-led counter-summit to the United Nations Food Systems Summit, the GPS gathered more than a hundred people’s movements and civil society organizations on September 21 to 23 and adopted a People’s Declaration for the radical transformation of the current food regimes towards just, equitable, and sustainable food systems. They also vowed to work collectively to carry out national, regional, sectoral, and thematic People’s Action Plans that were produced from the workshops, public forums, and consultations organized under the Global People’s Summit.

We must reclaim our voices to demand food systems which put our fundamental rights above profit, our planet over corporations, and our sovereignty over monopolies. Join us in amplifying the People’s Declaration and our call for just, equitable, healthy, and sustainable food systems!
