Being at the Heart of Action

September 24, 2016 Development and Peace in Prince Albert

by Marj Bienia

PRINCE ALBERT – The Development and Peace Fall Campaign Workshop “At the Heart of Action” was held on Sept. 24 at St. Joseph Parish in Prince Albert. This workshop marked the beginning of the 50th anniversary of Development and Peace. For decades, the organization has worked in solidarity with worldwide social movements addressing injustice and creating change. This workshop was an opportunity to learn how to be in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Global South and with Creation.

We were introduced to agroecology which is food sovereignty in action. Development and Peace supports the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agricultural systems.

Helen Tremblay-Boyko, a Canadian farmer and member of Development and Peace, is the subject of a video that illustrates how she is switching to agroecology. Visit www.devp.org/en/education/fall2016 for an insider’s view of how ecology at the ground roots can really work.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary, Development and Peace is offering free memberships. Monthly donors automatically become members. More members give Development and Peace a stronger voice.
