La Via Campesina


La Via Campesina (LVC) was founded in 1993 and involves 164 member organisations in 73 countries from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

LVC represents millions of peasants, small and medium-size farmers, landless people, women farmers, indigenous people, migrants and agricultural workers.

LVC is an autonomous, pluralist and multicultural movement that promotes agroecology as a path to social justice and dignity. LVC defends peasant agriculture against corporate-driven agriculture and trade liberalisation, and upholds Food Sovereignty as a response to the intertwined food and climate crises.

We are working towards a Peasant Rights Declaration currently in negotiation at the UN Human Rights Council.
