Over the last year I have had the pleasure of interacting with veteran farmer-activist John Kinsman of Lima Ridge, Wisconsin on a number of occasions. First in Washington DC where he contributed to a short video I made with the National Family Farm Coalition based on the 7 principles of Food Sovereignty developed by the Via Campesina network:
Then in April at the annual protests against the Chicago Mercantile Echange led by his group Family Farm Defenders:
And most recently in the form of a live lecture/interview at the Jane Addams Hull House Museum:
In the future, look out for some of my writings on John Kinsman’s work.
