Courageous Biotech Industry Whistleblower & Vigilant Seed Saver: Vandana Shiva

Vandana Shiva Portrait
If you aren’t familiar and totally up to date on the biotech industry whistle blower Vandana Shiva, and the work she is doing, and the lectures she has given — this blog post is for you! If you have followed Vandana Shiva over the years and know her work well, you get a free pass. Good work! See you next time.

With the amount of reading, movies, TV, social eating, internet surfing, chatting, and radio listening we do, there is no reason to not dedicate a few hours to listen to people that are standing for truth and trying to educate the masses. Trust me, the masses need educating. The corporate controlled media has done such a fine job of turning people into zombies, and filling their heads with self serving rhetoric. It’s time to brake free of it. It’s time to get in touch with real people and real issues. That is you, right? You are real, aren’t you? You aren’t some TV commercial or print ad, or zombie citizen, created simply to excessively work and consume constantly, bringing billions to those that monopolize the world — are you?

Vandana Shiva is a world-renowned environmental leader and thinker. Director of the Research Foundation on Science, Technology, and Ecology, she is the author of at least 20 books. Vandana Shiva is also a leader in the International Forum on Globalization. She addressed the World Trade Organization summit in Seattle, as well as the World Economic Forum in Melbourne. She won the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize (the Right Livelihood Award), and was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize. She is the founder of Navdanya, a movement promoting diversity and use of native seeds. Before becoming an activist, she was one of India’s leading physicists. She holds a master’s degree in the philosophy of science and a PhD in particle physics.

Here are three videos that are worth listening to. You don’t need to watch them, just listen to them. I think it’s important.

    Nice portrait :) Those are long vids, but I’ll watch them somewhere in between. Just wanted to thank you for posting, I LOVE your blog! XOX

    • Thanks Sita!
      I’m so glad you get to connect with me through my blog. And no rush, watch/listen to the videos anytime! I listened to them while I was working on creative projects at home (I was beading). It makes the time fly by. Try it, next time you make art. :) It’s a fun way to catch up on important information.
      Lots of love!
