Agroecology: gaining strength in the Netherlands

Like in many other parts of the world, the Netherlands is a country with two realities. On the one hand, for decades policies have been pushing for further industrialisation of agriculture and food. Many farmers find themselves squeezed between the demands of suppliers and supermarkets, and a large number of Dutch farmers have closed business in the past decade. At the same time peasants, citizens and social movements are rising and building agroecological alternatives, creating more autonomy from existing power structures.
