As it became the main rallying cry of La Vía Campesina, and as it began to be appropriated by other groups and allies, the campaign for food sovereignty increasingly united disparate individuals, localities, and groups that contest the lack of democratic control over their food systems, whether peasants fighting for their rights to grow food sustainably on small plots of land, or consumers fighting for the rights of all to eat sufficient, safe, and healthy food. McMichael highlights the central elements of food sovereignty, quoting Paul Nicholson, a founding member and leader of La Vía Campesina: “We propose local food markets, the right of any country to protect its borders from imported food, sustainable agriculture and the defence of biodiversity, healthy food, jobs and strong livelihood in rural areas” (McMichael 2011, 806).
