  1. The Free Trade alternative rather relies on countries abroad continuing with plantation system to provide us with cheap food.The signs are (the Food Sovereignty Movement and La Via Campesina) that they have had enough of it. Quite apart from putting your country under the direct control of giant agribusinesses,what is the point of growing food for export then having to import food to live?
    Coffee is a case in point because this used to be grown in the shade from trees that would provide food for the home market such as bananas. Now coffee tends to be grown in direct sunlight.

    Because you can use the surplus to import other things that people might want?
