I’m just starting to see some of Vandana Shiva’s work and she’s amazing. This Vandana Shiva interview as a very good introduction to her. She covers the problems we have today with soil, seeds, genetically modified organisms and the greed of large corporations doing anything to increase their profits and their monopolies. From minute 7 onwards she talks about the problems with the Monsanto corporation.
