2nd, August, 2015, Launch of Anna Swaraj Abhiyan with a campaign on Food Smart Citizens for Food Smart Cities – connecting producers to consumers and the village with the town in direct links of safe, fresh, local and fair food at Indian Medical Association, Meerut.
Food freedom is based on the liberation of the earth from ecological destruction and toxic pollution, the liberation of the farmers from suicides due to debt created by dependence on purchase of costly chemicals and seeds, and the liberation of the citizens from malnutrition and disease caused by toxic pesticides. Thus, Food Smart Cities will build direct links to the farmers/ producer to the consumer.
