Birmingham and Midland Institute, 9 Margaret Street, Birmingham B3 3BS

The UK government and the corporations are trying to take control of Africa’s food.

·Janet Maro – Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania

·Christine Haigh – World Development Movement

Come and find out how we can stand in solidarity with African food producers to challenge the corporate threat to their land and livelihoods.

Janet Maro founded Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania, an umbrella organisation that acts as the leading centre for organic and sustainable agriculture in Tanzania. A practitioner and advocate of agro ecological farming techniques against deforestation, crop disease and food shortages.

Christine Haigh is a campaigner at the World Development Movement. She worked on WDM’s successful campaign to limit financial speculation on food commodities.

JDC is publishing this event of the World Development Movement, supported by Birmingham Friends of the Earth. It follows on two meetings we organised on Food as part of the IF campaign in 2013.
