From 10-13 December 2018, civil society movements from ten countries gathered in Goiás, along with family farmers, indigenous communities, scholars and professionals in various fields of knowledge and social organizations, for the 1st International – 3rd National Seminar on Agrochemicals: Socio-environmental Impacts and Human Rights. At the center of all discussions is the current dominant agrifood system in Latin America and the world. The event resulted in the creation of a Latin American network to combat agrotoxics and promote agroecology.

In the document extracted from the meeting, the Letter of Goiás (Carta de Goiás) participants denounce the social and environmental reality of their countries, the impacts of the agro-industrial model,  as well as corporate control on governments and its consequences, which require urgent measures.
