This Land is your Land - Food Sovereignty

A talk show Food Sovereignty. This week, 4th August, we hear from; Jean Blaylock at Global Justice Now about trade deals and why they are bad for Food Sovereignty. Hedley Wells, a Star and Shadow café volunteer, a Byker Wall resident and now working with Byker Mutual Aid group. This is the last episode!. There will be another series later in the year. What is food sovereignty? Food sovereignty allows communities control over the way food is produced, traded and consumed, rather than make large profits for multinational corporations and supermarkets. Each week we will speak to people who campaign for food sovereignty. And to producers and growers in Newcastle Upon Tyne who are producing and selling fresh, healthy food that we can trust. https://youtu.be/qQcXyDfRTvI LISTEN BACK TO THE PREVIOUS 6 EPISODES HERE: EPISODE 1 Toxic Trade Deal Mutual Aid groups in Newcastle's West End https://mixlr.com/star-shadow-radio/showreel/this-land-is-your-land-food-sovereignty-toxic-trade-deals-mutual-aid-in-newcastles-west-end EPISODE 2 Agribusiness Negative Effects Food Waste with Magic Hat Cafe https://mixlr.com/star-shadow-radio/showreel/this-land-is-your-land-agribusiness-negative-effects-food-waste-with-magic-hat-cafe EPISODE 3 Rebecca Laughton from The Land Workers Alliance, Horticultural Campaigner. https://landworkersalliance.org.uk/ Valerie Middleton Shieldfield Resident, growing veg. https://mixlr.com/star-shadow-radio/showreel/this-land-is-your-landrebecca-laughton-shieldfield-resident-valerie-about-veg-wheat EPISODE 4 Three Local Organic Farms.
