Food sovereignty discourses in Croatia
Food sovereignty movement makes the significant part of the global struggle for solidarity (moral, good) economy as well as the important part in fighting the climate change. It is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. The struggle encompasses several topics, and each one of these has its own ecolinguistic repertoire. In this article we will present the analysis of the media and public discourse in the past 10 years in Croatia focused around this particular topic. The focus will be on comparing the discourses of the two main parts in the struggle – various supranational agencies operating on the EU level (Including Croatian representatives), NGOs fighting for seeds, water and ecological food, ecological farmers, on one side, and the mainstreams actors, such as producers of fertilizers, pesticides and GMO seeds on the other, state institutions that are to be of service to the people, and conventional farmers, on the other.
