RtFN members along with like-minded organisation and the right to food activists participated in the programme, holding placards with different messages and slogans demanding to ensure farmer rights, land rights, climate issues and over all the fundamental rights.
Addressing the program, Dr Keshab Khadka from All Nepal Peasant's Federation (ANPFa) stressed the need and importance of information on climate change and its impact on farmers and agriculture, whereas Ms Sujita Shakya from All Nepal Women Association (ANWA) expressed that women and children are the most affected ones and the prevalence of food insecurity.
Likewise, the representative from National Land Reform Forum (NLRF) stressed the need and importance of land reform to ensure the right to food/food sovereignty and talked about farmers' needs and rights being ignored by the government.
The closing speech was delivered by Dr Padma Pd. Khatiwada from Human Right Alliance. In his closing speech, he put forward a strong view targeting small-holders farmers and their contribution to the nation. At the end, he expressed thanks to all for being part of the campaign and said these issues are being issues of each one of us and further stressed the need of continuous support of everyone and collective advocacy until we achieve what we dream.
