This year CSM will celebrate and commemorate its 10th Anniversary. 10 years of struggles, peoples’ voices, faces and hands bringing to Rome their homes, ecosystems and demands. Ten years of alternative and grassroots collective narratives and practices as well as wonderful achievements that have empowered people’s struggle for the right to food around the planet. Today the struggle continues and gets even harder and sometimes more polarized. CSM has grown and has self-equipped itself to face the current challenges with an incredible wealth of knowledge and heritage of capacities and legitimacy. To honor and commemorate this journey the CSM has decided to launch an autonomous virtual public event prior to the official opening of the CFS virtual events of October to honor these ten years and linking them to the challenges of the present and future, invoking the spirit of the CFS reform: “Nothing about us, Without us!”. The event will take place virtually on Monday 12 of October 2020 from 2.00 to 5.00 pm Rome time. This date also coincides with the Indigenous Resistance day and will be a platform to launch our key policy messages to CFS. Register here to join!
