Just Cause – Mexico: Without Corn There Is No Country

  • Whatsapp

"Just Cause", hosted by Colombian human rights advocate Piedad Córdoba, offers a series of documentaries on Latin American economic, political and social realities. Today’s program highlights the role of corn in the region from pre-colonial times to today's neoliberal, globalized economy, particularly in the light of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Campesinos and other social movements are fighting to preserve the traditional crop against GMOs and Monsanto-developed corn, which represents the loss of food sovereignty and independent food production for Mexico. teleSUR
