Trump Won … Now What? World food movement’s concern

0

It’s no surprise that we’re shocked — a Trump Presidency seemed unthinkable a month ago.
The question for all of us in the global food movement is what do we do now?
No matter where you live in the world, what happened last night in the United States impacts you — and the future of food.

How can we now come together and mobilize to build a more economically and environmentally sustainable and socially just food system?

Dear Danielle,
Not only you and the average Americans, but also the rest of the world are shocked at the unexpected result of the November 8 election. But I have followed Trump and found that he worked for this and was not at all surprised.
There would now from the start of the Trump administration likely be an absence of the welcoming environment, and at its worst obstructions to some aspects of the food movement like stopping wastages and ‘food rights and democracy’ but globally the usefulness of the movement has by and large been accepted. The new administration would not be able to give this a damn, I am sure in this era of global scarcity.
My hunch is more focused attention to a) food economics around other aspects of the movement to show what it means in respect of saving money from unnecessarily waste and the b) prime importance of maintaining a sustainable resources base for the posterity would help melt down minds of hardliners.
Please take lesson from the electoral setback, an administration cannot create or foil a movement, it can only facilitate or not-facilitate. The movement is fully in the hands of people like you.
This is the prime time to push ahead with movement for sustainability of life of not only people like us but also that of all living systems and the planet itself.
Sincerely
Mostafa Kamal Majumder <mostafakmajumder@gmail.com>
