Food Justice Event #2 – BBQ – 13.05.17
Last weekend solidarity hull held its second food justice event bringing together 30 people to cook, enjoy a wonderful bbq, and watch an amazing documentary called ilha das flores from brazil. The documentary follows the path of a tomato from garden to dump whilst examining how human beings treat each other and our relationships with food. Following the documentary we used a fish bowl technique to discuss the links between freedom and food. The technique brought interesting discussions surrounding links between skin colour/women and food, basic needs, modes of production and employment, the oppressive system of capitalism, excessive food packaging and much more. Solidarity hull is going to continue to explore food security and justice and how it experience from people of different nationalities, ethnicities and genders. We will keep people posted on all events but please get in contact if you’re interested in explore these ideas collectively.
Food Security project Solidarity Hull – LAUNCH EVENT – 14.01.17
Solidarity Hull launched our food security project with the preparation and consumption of a delicious dinner cooked by several members from different parts of the world. Among those of us, there were people from ten different nationalities: Congo, Tanzania, Colombia, Argentina, Kurdistan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Iraq, Afghanistan and Britain.
The main idea of this project is for us to collectively start unravelling the term “Food Security” contributing with our findings to the wider movement on food security and food sovereignty in the UK, which is in need of a clear government food policy. This project is being developed in partnership with the People’s Knowledge Collective of the Centre for Agro-ecology, Water and Resilience, Coventry University.
