Solidarity and organising with Migrant workers in the food system


In the UK we rely on 10s of thousands of migrant workers to pick and process our food. These workers are at risk of and experience exploitation on a daily basis, but are often least able to find safe representation due to being in rural areas, subject to bonded labour and intimidation. In 2020 some of the worst covid outbreaks were associated with food processing plants where people were forced to work in environments perfect for the spread of the virus, and with no guarantee of sick pay. Globally this is also the case, from Italy to Mexico, migrant workers are exploited to meet the needs of our just-in-time food system. Hear from grassroots organising on how we can build a just and ecologically sound food system.
