Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung organizes an international series of online events between late March and May 2021 under the title “Farmworkers: Considered essential but exploited”. This series of three online events seeks to highlight the experiences of farmworkers and shed light on their working and living realities. The series will discuss, among others, the following questions: Who are farmworkers? What are their working and living realities? What role does migration and migrant labour play in the agricultural sector, especially migrant women farmworkers? What approaches to organizing them and making their interests more visible are available to trade unions and other worker organizations? Are there ongoing processes of self-organisation, and what are their demands? What needs to be done to improve their lives?
All these questions and more will be discussed with farmworker representatives and farmworkers themselves from various parts of the world.
Each event will be held in English and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation. Further details below
