Action: Stop EU support of the New Alliance

On the 14th of March 2016, AEFJN together with Global Justice Now, Peuples Solidaires-Action Aid France, SOS Faim and CCFD-Terre Solidaire, organized an action to call on the EU to withdraw its support from the New Alliance. The New Alliance is favourable to large businesses and assists these groups in accessing Africa’s land, seeds and markets. These policies threaten the livelihoods of small-scale farmers and food sovereignty of Africans across the continent. The action took place on the day that the Development committee of the European parliament was meeting, in order to scrutinise the New Alliance. Approximately 30 people from the aforementioned organizations and others joined the protest in front of the European Parliament and campaigned through social media.
