CONTAG 1963-2023: Ações de reprodução social e formas de ações coletivas

Abstract

O presente livro merece ser duplamente celebrado, pois chega em um momento simbólico de 60 anos da Contag e, ao mesmo tempo, cobre uma lacuna ao fazer um balanço sistemático dessa longeva trajetória. Resultado de mais de uma década de pesquisa colaborativa, Marco Antonio Teixeira nos presenteia com muito mais do que uma reconstrução histórica da Con-tag. Os leitores e leitoras também encontrarão nessas páginas as vozes dos sujeitos sobre suas experiências e uma análise da organização em movimento, suas diferentes formas de mobi-lização e as ações submersas que permitem sua reprodução social.

Esta obra, de autoria do companheiro e pesquisador Marco Antonio Teixeira, sistematiza o percurso dos 60 anos da Contag e traz uma reflexão sobre a atuação de movimentos sociais a partir da caminhada histórica da Contag, destacando as diferentes conjunturas ao longo desse tempo e as variadas formas de ação da confederação, cuja atuação sempre buscou se pautar pelo diálogo amplo, plural, mas sem perder o sentido fundamental de sua missão e razão de existir — a defesa dos trabalhadores rurais agricultores e agricultoras familiares.

Articulação Nacional de Agroecologia • 2022

Brasil, do flagelo da fome ao futuro agroecológico – Uma análise do desmonte das políticas públicas federais e a agroecologia como alternativa

Abstract

The National Articulation of Agroecology (ANA) is a space for interaction and construction of learning and political convergence that involves movements, networks and civil society organizations engaged in concrete experiences of promoting agroecology in Brazil. Among other action fronts, ANA plays a role in building political unity for incidence in spaces of dialogue between society and the State at its different levels, seeking to influence the creation and improvement of public policies aimed at promoting agroecology in its multiple dimensions and guaranteeing food and nutritional sovereignty and security. Within this field of action, ANA launched the national mobilization campaign entitled Agroecology in Elections 2022. The initiative aims to project the proposals of the agroecological field in the electoral debate. This is expected to increase support for agroecology by growing segments of society and to gain the commitment of candidates for executive and legislative positions at state and federal levels. Developed in a decentralized way in all states of the country, the action is composed of a set of mobilization initiatives, all articulated in communication actions aimed at giving wide dissemination and reach to the proposals. The first of these was the elaboration of a Letter of Commitment with proposals for candidates in the 2022 elections. This document has the function of subsidizing the debates and constituting a reference for the dialogue with candidates in activities such as campaign rallies and acts in all the states of the federation.

Food Sovereignty and popular feminism in Brazil

Abstract

The Marcha das Margaridas is a coalition of women and feminism movements, agrarian movements, trade unions, and international organizations that emerged in 2000. Women’s organizations that are part of a rural trade federation lead the process. While its initial agenda included gendered class-based demands for the recognition of women’s work in food production, access to land titles and labour rights, the Marcha das Margaridas progressively incorporated other topics, such as agroecology and food sovereignty. The article addresses three questions: How did food sovereignty enter their agenda? What is the meaning of food sovereignty for them? How can food sovereignty be understood from a (popular) feminist perspective? Our research is based on participant observation in the last two Marchas (2015 and 2019), interviews with activists, and document analysis.
