A victory for the defenders of peasant agriculture

26 March 2009

Following our press release of the 27th of January 2009, the European Coordination Via Campesina now welcomes the release of Michel Berhocoirigoin, president of EHLG. The twisted arguments of the French state did not convince the judges at his trial who have demonstrated that they still represent an independent decision making process. We hope that the French state will finally adopt a constructive role of support for the EHLG and for sustainable peasant agriculture in general. We would like to once again congratulate the EHLG on its work and we are glad to know that this exceptional initiative for the defence of peasants, men and women, and for the promotion of food sovereignty in the Basque country in France will continue.
