Take One Action:
Soyalism

Wed 25 September 2019

Food production has increasingly become huge business for a handful of giant corporations. How do we re-prioritise workers’ rights, animal welfare and environmental sustainability?

Through interviews with workers from China, Brazil, the US and Mozambique, Soyalism lays bare the many land rights and labour rights violations at the heart of the pork industry. It offers an incisive overview of a deliberately complex system – and the ecological and social ramifications of such enormous concentration of power in the hands of Western and Chinese companies.

Soyalism also provides an eye-opening and urgent reminder of the crucial role workers, consumers and campaigners, wherever they are, can play in solidarity with communities across the world, who are fighting to protect their rights.
