Demise of Doha Negotiations a Cause for Celebration
Grassroots International ally and grantee, the National Family Farm Coalition (a member of Grassroots’ partner the Via Campesina), celebrated the demise of the recent Doha Round of negotiations at the World Trade Organization in Geneva. Grassroots supports the NFFC’s and Via’s demand for the WTO to “get out of agriculture” as this is imperative to realizing food sovereignty. The disastrous neoliberal trade policies pursued by the WTO benefit the “industrial agricultural complex” while harming family farmers, peasants and farm workers worldwide.
