A presentation and discussion with Mitchel Cohen, editor of the new book, The Fight Against Monsanto's Roundup: The Politics of Pesticides
Chemical poisons have infiltrated all facets of our lives. More than half a century since Rachel Carson issued Silent Spring - her call-to-arms against the poisoning of our drinking water, food, animals, air, and the natural environment - The Fight Against Monsanto's Roundup looks at the politics underlying the mass use of pesticides and the challenges people around the world are making against the purveyors of poison and the governments that enable them.
"This may be one of the most important books you read this year. We are being poisoned, and this book is sounding a well-informed alarm. Read it. Get educated and then join the thousands rising up against those who care more for profit than the health of our bodies and our earth."
- Eve Ensler
