Farmers. Citizens. Unite. | Watch IFOAM - Organics International's short film!
Today IFOAM - Organics International premiered the film ‘We Unite’ at the European Organic Congress and also launched it online. You can watch and share it on Facebook and on the film website. The audio is in German and subtitles are available in Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish (forthcoming on YouTube).
The 12-minute film ‘We Unite’ is a window into the lives of two organic farmers and the reasons they join the yearly ‘We are Fed-Up’ demonstration in Germany. Along with hundreds of other farmers, they drive their tractors into the heart of Berlin where they unite with thousands of citizens calling for a better food and farming system for all.
Carlo Horn and Hanna Erz talk about why they farm organically, the impact it has on soils and yield, and how, even in times of drought, they are still able to harvest crops. They highlight the need for sustainable food systems that give farmers access to land, protect the environment, pay fair prices and provide good food for all.
To transition to a better food and farming system IFOAM - Organics International calls for:
- Real money set aside for nature, the environment and climate
- An end to perverse subsidies by enhancing minimum environmental rules for all farmers
- Real law enforcement
- Improve the governance of the CAP and the performance framework
