calls its members and allies, and civil society organizations to mobilize and organize actions on October 16th, the International Day of Action for Peoples' Food Sovereignty and against transnational corporations (TNCs). The current climate, hunger and migrant and refugee crises affecting millions of peasants, small farmers, families, especially women and youth show that corporate solutions are false and won't yield human dignity.

La Via Campsina calls for a radical transformation towards a fair and decent food system for all - through wider adoption of agroecology and the construction of people's food sovereignty - a system change that recognizes peoples' needs, accords dignity and respects nature.
