Chapter 10, Food Movements Unite! Consciousness + Commitment = Change
A Conversation with Lucas Benítez of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers
I think that we need to create alliances between all the food
movements. We all want a healthy food supply and everyone in the
chain to be treated with dignity—from the production worker to
the consumer. But we are facing a monster: the corporate world.
They are only interested in money and profits. We have to be clear,
relentless, and determined to do what it takes in our communities
to create change where we want it. Eventually these corporations,
if we hit them where it hurts—if we go for their profits—will be
forced to change the way they do business. Maybe we can’t make
Walmart disappear, but we can change the way they do business.
The power is in our hands. The first thing we must to do is develop
consciousness and commitment to create change.
