Vandana Shiva | FRANCE 24 – TRANSCEND Media Service
Our guest is Vandana Shiva, a world-famous environmental activist from India. Her latest book is entitled One Earth, One Humanity vs the 1%. She tells us about her opposition to big multinationals such as Monsanto for their nefarious influence on agriculture. But Shiva also singles out billionaires like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg for criticism. “When Bill Gates pours money into Africa for feeding the poor and preventing famine, he’s pushing the failed Green Revolution, he’s pushing chemicals, pushing GMOs, pushing patterns“, she tells FRANCE 24’s Marc Perelman.
TRANSCEND Member Prof. Vandana Shiva is a physicist, ecofeminist, philosopher, activist, and author of more than 20 books and 500 papers. She is the founder of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, and has campaigned for biodiversity, conservation and farmers’ rights, winning the Right Livelihood Award [Alternative Nobel Prize] in 1993. She is executive director of the Navdanya Trust.

Thanks for posting this, Antonio/TMS! One of the best You Tube dialogues I’ve seen and witnessed. Just a little more than 12 minutes! Professor Vandana Shiva is a fountain of knowledge, a cornucopia of intelligence, sharing her wisdom about biodiversity, conservation and farmers’ rights and the dangers posed by megalithic corporations and mega-billionaires in the manipulation of our lives on this precious planet. Kudos to the wise Professor! Let us listen and learn, and act accordingly–judiciously and wisely!
