As part of the Justice Begins with Seeds Statewide Conference & GMO Awareness Week, we invite you to attend the presentation of pre-conference Keynote Speaker:
Dr. Vandana Shiva: world renowned environmental activist, thinker, author and leader.
“The right of corporations to force-feed citizens of the world with culturally inappropriate and hazardous foods has been made absolute [in the globalizing economy]. The right to food, the right to safety, the right to culture are all being treated as trade barriers that need to be dismantled…we have to reclaim our right to nutrition and food safety. We have to reclaim our right to protect the earth and her diverse species. We have to stop this corporate theft from the poor and from nature. Food democracy…is the new agenda for ecological sustainability and social justice...The time has come to reclaim the stolen harvest and celebrate the growing and giving of good food as the highest gift and most revolutionary act.” -Vandana Shiva from "Stolen Harvest"
