Free the Soil 2020 – next steps…

aus emehl:

…die Kampagne „Free The Soil“ geht auch 2020 weiter & freut sich über landwirtschaftlich-klimabewegte Unterstützung! :) In Zeiten diverser Bauernproteste und der neuen Aushandlung der EU-Agrarsubventionen braucht es Aufmerksamkeit für sozial-ökologische Stimmen und Aktionen für eine Agrarwende von unten…

Beim Treffen vergangenes Wochenende haben wir unsere nächsten Ziele abgesteckt:

FreeTheSoil unterstützt die „Block Bayer“-Aktion am 17. April im Rheinland – dem internationalen Tag des bäuerlichen Widerstands!
Eine Blockade-Aktion in Solidarität mit der weltweiten Kleinbäuer*innenBewegung „La Via Campesina“ für den Stopp der Pestizid-Produktion von Bayer/Monsanto. → www.blockbayer.org
Also haltet euch den 17.4. frei, macht in euren Netzwerken darauf aufmerksam oder steigt direkt selbst in die Orga ein (→ nächstes Treffen am 7.3. in Bonn → Kontakt: info@blockbayer.org)

Dranbleiben an von Aufklärung & Aktion gegen mineralischen Stickstoff-Dünger, ihre klimaschädliche Produktion und die Konzerne dahinter. Unser Wunsch: Dieses Jahr inhaltliche Bildung & Verbündete stärken #Bauernproteste – und 2021 vielleicht wieder eine größere Aktion… ?

Lokale (Klima)-Gruppen für landwirtschaftliche Themen begeistern – in Paris gibt es bereits die erste „Free The Soil“-Lokalgruppe! :) Erarbeitung einer Präsentation für dezentrale Veranstaltungen zu Landwirtschaft & Klimagerechtigkeit.

Soweit schonmal in Kurzform, Details folgen demnächst.

Auf ein widerständiges und nachhaltig aktives Jahr 2020!

FreeTheSoil – Climate Justice not Agroindustry!

+++ English version +++

Hello everybody! :)

Last weekend we had our first FreeTheSoil-meeting in 2020, where we came together and decided the next steps for the campaign. Even not many – but also new – people attended the meeting, there was a productive atmosphere and lovely food from our Hosts in Bremen.
→ Now we have a collectively discussed idea how to go on with our common struggle for Agriculture & Climate Justice…

The protocol will follow soon – here a short report of results & our next meeting-date:

We Support the „Block Bayer“-Action on 17th of April in the Rhineland – the international day of peasant resistance!
This action is in solidarity with peasant struggles worldwide and is about to block pesticide-production of Bayer/Monsanto.
→ www.blockbayer.org (Contact for joining: info@blockbayer.org – their next meeting will take place on Sa, 7th of March in Bonn) Everyone is invited to join this Action-Plan, support in any way you can – for example local mobilizing, networking, participating in the action.

In Paris exists already a „FreeTheSoil“ local group, YEAH! :)
→ Ideas for making local groups more visible and connected were discussed – it’s nice, to have more local groups.
The Paris group is highly motivated and will stay focused on mineral fertilizers and YARA (Yara will be maybe the „biggest Lier“ in france → https://www.prix-pinocchio.org/). Also they have an info-tour with a presentation, which is planed to be translated for use in other languages. So the fight against YARA isn‘t over and there was high agreement to go on with that topic.

There was the ask for more education (internal & public), to share and discuss more about agriculture, climate and rural areas from a left perspective. People from Bremen are interested to form a little group for self-education and want to contact with the Paris-Group.

In 2021 we would like to have a kind of „bigger FreeTheSoil-action“ – this year we want to regenerate and start the new fts-process after the „BlockBayer“-action. Till May/June we want to have concrete options how to go on with FreeTheSoil – as a mass-action and transnational structure.

The next FreeTheSoil-meeting will take place on Friday, 3th of April in Bonn. This meeting in April is needed to keep FreeTheSoil working and to make the existing ideas/plans for the „time after BlockBayer“ more concrete. This will be a shorter meeting on Friday and Saturday morning – so please arrive on Friday as early as possible. ;)
After our meeting there is the BlockBayer meeting till Saturday evening, where everyone is invited to join.

Open Tasks and Needs
Because there wasn‘t so many people at the meeting, we had some problems to find responsible persons:
- Mail-accout (Who is up to that? checking, forwarding, sending → freethesoil@riseup.net)
- Homepage (UPDATING, uploading information, maybe new structure)
- SocialMedia (keeping going – supporting #BlockBayer)
- Process-work (People needed, to re-create a working-group-structure for the time after April)

Please feel free to write over our mailing-list (freethesoil@lists.riseup.net), and let‘t organise all these important work for our campaign. Looking forward to a nice 2020 – with a lot of resistance everywhere and sustainable activism in us!
