Development and Peace – Caritas April 17: International Day of Peasants’ Struggles

Created in 1996 by the international peasant movement Via Campesina, this international day commemorates the massacre of 19 landless peasants in Brazil on April 17th. It is a moment to celebrate the solidarity and resistance of peasant movements and strengthen alliances between urban and rural communities so together they can build a world that is just and respects the dignity of all peoples. On this day, Development and Peace - Caritas Canada salutes the struggles of peasant movements around the world. On April 17, why not support peasant struggles by preparing a local organic meal?
