Greening the Revolution: A Food Justice Documentary Coming to #ABQ this Weekend

The producers of Greening the Revolution have teamed up with University of New Mexico's Food Justice Initiative and Food & Water Watch, to promote a screening of a powerful documentary on food justice. The film is set in Haiti, Mexico, Brazil, Cuba, India, Africa and the United States (including migrant farm camps and Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota).

"A high-definition documentary explores the far-reaching effects of international food injustice, from world hunger to the consumption of industrial food. Using food as a symbol of inequality, we explain and expose the corrupt cycle of globalization that perpetuates systems of poverty and oppressive social control," said the documentary producers. "We then present hope: successful, sustainable communities achieving food justice and freedom through the power of the people."
