Bulletins

The Reclaim the Fields bulletins aims at facilitating the information transmission between the stars of the constellation, sharing the latest news and the current state of the process amongst the people or collectives already involved and allowing new people to catch up and join us, having at disposition the necessary background texts and a history of the debates.

Since its first edition the “Reclaim the Fields” (RtF) bulletin is a way to exchange and circulate information within the RtF network and to make RtF and its ideas visible where it’s still less known.

It’s usually published after each assembly meeting: it contains feedback from the last assembly and an invitation to the next one (the assemblies are the only decision making moments within RtF). It is also a means for the stars of the RtF constellation to share their news: to present projects, share information about actions, spread call-outs and publicise events to come.

 

Bulletin 9 Januar 2015

In the meantime, the team of Bulletin n°9 is happy to present you an issue full of readings:

  • news of the constellation: the assemblies and the meetings followed one another this year on various scales: European, German-speaking, and British
  • news of places linked to RtF (Can Piella, the farm of Yorkley Court), of projects and dynamics (SoLila, Nyeleni, the french farms network)
  • reflections on topics which interest us and which are discussed in the network: relationship with animals, place of women in a period when Spain questions the right to abortion, and peasant agroecology; or which are discussed somewhere else but which resonated with us, such as the declaration on the youth of Nyeleni
  • and a surprise: a RtF flyer you can reproduce, spread widely and hand out when someone asks you: “... but actually, what is RtF?”
