Vandana Shiva: Seeds and Seedmultinationals

Vandana Šiva: osivo a nadnárodní semenářské společnosti

Having harvested disastrous crops of Monsanto’s genetically modified “BT” cotton, many Indian farmers face ruin. For many farmers, the only escape from accumulated debt is suicide. For more than 20 years, Vandana Shiva dedicated herself to defending the rights of India’s small farmers and maintaining biodiversity. “Monsanto – quit India” is her mantra.
