On April 1, the Power to the Pieper (pieper = potato) action saw a pile of organic potatoes dumped in Dams Square, Amsterdam, with members of Slow Food Youth (SFY) Netherlands inviting the public to take them home. “At this moment, potatoes are so lowly priced that this farmer cannot sell them on the market,” commented organizer Samuel Levie. “It’s actually cheaper for him to bring them here. We hope that people will realize how crazy it is that we are living with a food system in which food is actually worthless.”

Potatoes for peace and pink sunglasses.
