Tous au Larzac

It’s a really good documentary: attractive, intelligent, small farmers talking about their decade long and ultimately successful struggle to hold on to their land and stop it being acquired by the French state to expand a military base.

One gripe: there’s lots of talk about justice and as the years went by the farmers gradually came to see their struggle as part of a broader anti-globalization movement. The only problem with this is that it’s hard to think of a sustainable vision of  global economic  justice that includes subsidies for French small farmers raising sheep and growing a bit of tillage  on a rock strewn plateau.
