19.10.2020, 4pm - Online Seminar: Cooking Up Political Agendas by FIAN International

At different moments in time, women in rural areas in Latin America living under authoritarian regimes would come together while cooking around the community pot.

They used this strategy to create a space in which they had the freedom to discuss politics and articulate resistance actions or to respond to serious economic and food crises. Women in rural areas play a key role in helping their communities and households to achieve food and food security.

The online seminar on #CookUpPolitics with activists from the fields of agriculture, indigenous peoples and women's rights either live on Facebook at FIAN International or via the Link to Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rbsl6jO2RwyYTAB9ob9VWw
