Dr Vandana Shiva will be on a speaking tour of North America in March 2015 and October 2015. She recorded this message to kick off the coming year, which has been declared The Year of Soil.
As the debate over the future of the world’s food supply intensified in 2014, genetically modified seed / pesticide / agricultural biotechnology conglomerate Monsanto resorted to increasingly desperate stabs at credibility, such as hiring Conde Nast Media to produce propaganda — often in the form of character attacks and angry screeds against activists.
The food justice movement gained abundant victories in greater proportion, like the rolling back of seed laws that would make it illegal for gardeners and farmers to have access to their own varieties of seeds in Europe and Columbia, and, Indonesia overruling the arrest of farmers for saving seeds.
To invite Dr Vandana Shiva for an October 2015 / spring 2016 lecture on your university or college campus, or in your community, get in touch with us at info (at) eviltwinbooking.com, or via her booking form.
Looking forward to germinating a world of ecologically sustainable and just agriculture in 2015 and onward!
