The Future of Food: Democracy or Dictatorship? Hammer Museum Panel Featuring Vandana Shiva
October 1, 2014 | seedstock
The future of the planet and people is intimately linked to the future of food. Ironically, as society becomes more aware of industrial agriculture’s impact on ecosystems and human health, chemical and seed corporations are moving to control the global food system through genetic patents and seed laws that prevent farmers from saving and exchanging seeds. By suppressing food labeling laws, these corporations limit consumers’ ability to make informed choices about what they eat. The internationally renowned food activist Vandana Shiva discusses the movement for food democracy with environmentalist Derrick Jensen and the ecologist and GMO expert Ignacio Chapela.
