Realise, Resist, Reclaim

Dedicated to the people’s movements who are in the forefront of the struggle to realise their aspirations and full potential, to resist oppressive, repressive and exploitative systems and institutions. It is also to the people’s movement to reclaim rights to land and productive resources, food sovereignty, gender justice and environmental sustainability. “Realise, Resist and Reclaim” captures one valuable stream of a galaxy of social transformation movements that is fed and facilitated by the Pesticide Action Network in Asia and the Pacific (PANAP). It has led the global campaigning for safer food, sustainable agricultural practices and for a pro-people ecologically sustainable future. Significantly, it also sought to ensure that the rights of women are not only respected but that women are empowered to resist and develop their future vision and frameworks of action. All too often, social movements forget to document such important expressions of the long and difficult journey for transformational change.
