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.
