Definition of Food Sovereignty
You can certainly have food security under dictatorship, but you can’t have food sovereignty. You need democracy for food sovereignty to happen. Food sovereignty requires discussion. It takes putting people around the table, with meetings to figure out how water and food are shared, and how hunger is eradicated. Most of all, it’s characterized by conversations around hunger, poverty, and community. Those kinds of conversations are happening from Detroit to Oakland and that’s something to be celebrated.
