Democracy

Inspired to strive for food sovereignty worldwide

Grassroots groups worldwide are promoting a new framework to radically alter the way we produce and distribute food.  Uniting behind the banner of "food sovereignty", people are working not just for access to food, but for communities to have the right to democratically define their own food and agricultural systems without harming other people or the environment.

Quote 776

I'm very much an activist. I grew up in Russia during the height of the Cold War, a very restrictive communist society that didn't allow the individual to have a voice. Since moving to this country when I was 10, I've always had this drive to democratise the human voice. Technology is just a tool, and the Internet will be our tool to democratise television - Dmitry Shapiro, Founder and CEO, Veoh Networks Inc., San Diego, California
