Regaining Food Sovereignty Called for in S. Korea

Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) — The “National Federation of Peasants Associations” and the “National Federation of Women Peasants Associations” of south Korea reportedly called a press conference on Mar. 27 at which they vowed to protect locally produced rice and thus regain the food sovereignty usurped by the U.S.

Speakers there declared that they would launch strong actions against the storage of American rice.
It is a movement for regaining the food sovereignty to prevent the ships carrying American rice from entering ports and the rice silos from keeping it in storage, a press release declared, threatening to boycott the American rice while conducting the above-said actions.
