    Abstract

    This chapter presents a case study illustrating farmers and engaged
    citizens working collectively to better their communities, challenge
    government policy and fight for a more just and sustainable food
    system.
    The case chronicles and analyses the creation of different organisations
    or ‘mobilising structures’ in the Canadian Province of Manitoba. These
    emerged in response to a controversial food safety raid on a local farm.
    Through critical self-analysis, participatory action research can open
    opportunities for protagonists in social movement organisations to
    critically examine their own practice in order to strategically resist being
    co-opted and to move towards more transformative change.
