Communal Lunch and Film Screening
Friday 26 April from 12-3pm
at Company Drinks, Barking Park, London IG11 8TA
Sara Barnes from The Landworkers’ Alliance will introduce their work during a communal lunch, and after the talk we’ll be watching the one hour documentary In Our Hands: Seeding Change, a documentary telling the stories behind the sweat and tears of the British farmers seizing the Brexit moment to outgrow the industrial food system.
ABOUT THE LANDWORKERS’ ALLIANCE
“The Landworkers’ Alliance is a grassroots union of farmers, growers and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food system for everyone.
We work for a future where farmers are able to work with dignity and earn a decent living, and people can access healthy, affordable food from local producers.
We are a democratic member-led union, run by producers for producers. All our policies and representation comes from farmers, growers and land-based workers who have direct experiences of the issues we campaign on.
We are members of La Via Campesina, the global movement of small-scale producers and peasant farmers.”
