Food are drink are profoundly human.Yet our global food system is broken; as we see through land grabs, biofuels, food waste, overconsumption of meat and dairy, supermarket power, farmers squeezed, banks betting on food, monopolisation of the seed markets, over-reliance on heavy fertilisers and pesticides that ravage the Earth… Not to mention global hunger.
Essentially, we believe that:
All food should be grown and shared
as though people and planet mattered.
Speak currently has two campaignson the issue of food justice, which are interrelated. One campaign is focusing on the New Alliance, an initiative which is run by the UK's DfID, which is funding landgrabs over Africa and getting poor countries locked deeper into poverty. Our other campaign is with our sister network in Brazil, with the aim of banning some of the most deadly and toxic pesticides from being used in the area.
Please explore these campaigns through the hub boxes below, join the petitions and take them to your friends and Churches
SPEAK played a big part in the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign. We were a member of the coalition and held a stall at the big IF event in Hyde Park. It was a privilege to produce the video for the big IF Fast and contribute to many other fun projects. Now that the campaign has come to a close, learn what it achieved here
