We recognize, in our mutual struggles, the intentional de-development and destruction of food sovereignty as a strategy of settler colonial control. Indigenous, Black and Palestinian-led movements towards food sovereignty are challenging industrial food systems built on the violent commodification and dispossession of land, labor and life.
On November 28th, we will be joined by Chef Brit Reed, Jonathan Wilson, Laila El-Haddad, and Maggie Schmitt to discuss transnational fights for food justice & the collective elevation of Indigenous, Black & Palestinian principles in constructing sustainable and healthy food ways in a conversation moderated by Chung-Wha Hong.
We are mindful that November 28 is midway between the National Day of Mourning marked by Indigenous people across the United States (Nov. 26) and the International Day of Solidarity with Palestine (Nov. 29.)
This is part of the ‘Beyond Survival’ project run by Just World Educational under the leadership of its President, Helena Cobban, along with the two co-authors of the groundbreaking ‘Gaza Kitchen’ cookbook, Laila El-Haddad and Maggie Schmitt.
