Proposals Booklets for the 21th Century : Peasant Farmers Confronted by the Challenges of the 21th Century
Ce cahier est une étape dans le processus de réflexion, engagé au niveau international, par les paysans devant la dégradation de leurs conditions de production et d’existence, afin de générer une prise de conscience de l’importance de l’agriculture familiale.
Hard hit by the daily deterioration of their production and living conditions and aware that their very survival is threatened, peasant farmers have been involved over the last ten years in reflection on international level, in close collaboration with allies in NGOs, research organisations, etc.
This booklet serves as an initial alert and a step in reflection that must continue until the voices of peasants are heard as well as those of everyone aware that family farming is vital for balanced societies; aware too of the lessons of history: « it is easy to destroy a peasantry, but it is impossible to rebuild one » (Louis Malassis).
