Press release Turin, 4th of February 2010
The Working group “seasonal workers, migrations and agriculture” of the European Coordination Via Campesina met on the 29th and 30th of January 2010 in Turin, 15 days after the events in Rosarno.
The working group agreed that:
The Common Agricultural Policy has supported the concentration and industrialization of the European agricultural production leading to the impoverishment and disappearance of many peasants and has increased the exploitation of workers.
The events of Rosarno form part of a migratory policy indifferent to respect for human rights, a practice unfortunately widespread throughout Europe and generated by a globalisation of economic exchanges to the detriment of populations and a just distribution of common goods.

Corrupt Copenhagen ‘accord’ exposes gulf between peoples demands and elite interests

The "agreement" was not adopted. Instead, it was "noted" in an absurd parliamentary invention designed to accommodate the United States and permit Ban Ki-moon to utter the ridiculous pronouncement "We have a deal."
