The Montagne Noire Avenir affiliation initiated a convention “against hunger and land grabbing” in collaboration with CCFD Terre solidaire, the main French NGO for worldwide solidarity and growth.
A convention with CCFD-Terre solidaire with Bernard Gils, representing the Catholic committee towards starvation, who was accompanied by Massa Koné, defender of land rights in Mali and native representatives of Montagne Noire Avenir (Emmanuel Pistre, Justine Bianconi and Anne Lesné) was held just lately. The audio system needed to indicate their attachment to the values they defend and due to this fact visited the place the place the future Fontiers-Cabardès golf course is to be arrange. Members of different associations joined in the debates.
For Bernard Gils : “ Our mode of action, in the name of international solidarity, develops partnerships in the countries of the South, even in countries of the northern hemisphere. As part of the Lenten campaigns, we receive partners that we support in the countries of the southern hemisphere, financially and through our commitment, because CCFD’s principle is to support projects set up by local communities. It is their development projects that we support. It is in this sense that the arrival of Massa Koné, secretary general of a Malian organization which federates more than 400 peasant organizations and other citizen movements in Mali is our guest. He is against land and water grabbing “, needed to make clear the CCFD consultant.
The goal of coming to Fontiers-Cabardès was talked about : “ Fontiers-Cabardès is land grabbing, the transition from agriculture to something else. Maintaining grassroots communities in the places where they live are issues that are shared everywhere. For us, the Fontiers-Cabardès golf course is the very image of land grabbing by companies and people who have nothing to do with agriculture. “
“ The point of convergence, wanted to specify Emmanuel Pistre, member of the Montagne Noire Avenir collective, is the maintenance of agriculture. For us, the grabbing of arable land does not only concern the countries of the south. “
And to develop European and world nationwide issues, with the arrival of a new type of traders. “ It is up to us to preserve and maintain our heritage. These are local approaches that have the same resonance both locally and nationally. These are the same issues “, accomplished the consultant of Fontiers. While the consultant of Mali affirmed that in his nation, he leads the identical claims.
Would golf get in the means ? “ It’s not just golf, it’s the real estate project associated with it. There is a structure, a way of acting which is the same in the world “, assures Anne Lesné. The dispute over the Fontiers-Cabardès golf mission is just not about to cease.
