It is time to strengthen solidarity, to practise resistance, to cultivate hope. This #MayDay, as La Via Campesina, we reaffirm that workers’ rights are also peasants rights! #1MAYIS #StayHomeButNotSilent : https://viacampesina.org/en/may-1st-building-solidarity-resistance-and-hope-among-peoples/
"From testing, to supplies of #PPE, to support for companies to survive, to support for workers to survive – the government has been found wanting.
Failure to procure test equipment and ventilators at the time of the WHO warning has cost time and lives."
Though many across the globe have minimized physical mobilization due to the pandemic, the movement of international solidarity for peasant rights continues. Our allies at La Via Campesina urge us all to #StayHomeButNotSilent in honor of April 17th, the International Day of Peasant Struggles, as COVID-19 threatens the health and livelihood of peasant & farm workers worldwide.
