These seeds — considered “intellectual property” by the big companies who own the patents — are globally marketed to monopolize food production and profits. Opponents challenge the safety of genetically modified seeds, claiming they also harm the environment, are more costly, and leave local farmers deep in debt as well as dependent on suppliers. Shiva, who founded a movement in India to promote native seeds, links genetic tinkering to problems in our ecology, economy, and humanity, and sees this as the latest battleground in the war on Planet Earth.<br /> <br /> Bill talks to scientist and philosopher Vandana Shiva, who’s become a rock star in the global battle over genetically modified seeds.

Peled's Globalization Trilogy, following Store Wars: When Wal-Mart Comes to Town and China Blue. The films won 18 international awards, aired on over 30 television channels and screened in more than 100 film festivals. They also connected viewers to NGO action campaigns and encouraged Western consumers to understand their impact on the rest of the world.<br /> <br /> Bitter Seeds explores the future of how we grow things, weighing in on the worldwide debate over the changes created by industrial agriculture. Companies like the U.S.-based Monsanto claim that their genetically modified (GM) seeds offer the most effective solution to feeding the world's growing population, but on the ground, many small-scale farmers are losing their land. Nowhere is the situation more desperate than in India, where an epidemic of farmer suicides has claimed over a quarter million lives. Every 30 minutes one farmer in India, deep in debt and unable to provide for his family, commits suicide.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://teddybearfilms.fatcow.com/2011/10/01/bitter-seeds-2">http://teddybearfilms.fatcow.com/2011/10/01/bitter-seeds-2</a> Vandana Shiva speaks at Right2Know March tag:homegrownorg.ning.com,2011-11-15:2263119:Video:123991 2011-11-15T17:35:54.237Z Cornelia https://homegrownorg.ning.com/profile/CorneliaHoskin <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/vandana-shiva-speaks-at-right2know-march"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777778956?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Vandana Shiva speaks at Right2Know March in front of the white House October 16 2011, World Food Day. <a href="http://www.right2knowmarch.org/">http://www.right2knowmarch.org/</a> <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/vandana-shiva-speaks-at-right2know-march"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777778956?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Vandana Shiva speaks at Right2Know March in front of the white House October 16 2011, World Food Day. <a href="http://www.right2knowmarch.org/">http://www.right2knowmarch.org/</a> Vandana Shiva: The Future of Food-Part 3 tag:homegrownorg.ning.com,2011-02-03:2263119:Video:56527 2011-02-03T18:43:54.999Z Cornelia https://homegrownorg.ning.com/profile/CorneliaHoskin <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/vandana-shiva-the-future-of-1"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777776308?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Dr. Vandana Shiva founded the Research for Science, Technology, and Ecology, (RFSTE) organization, inspired by her earlier involvement with the Chipko movement.

In 1973, in a mountainous region in the Himalayas, women villagers, in heroic and desperate fashion, clung to the body of trees to protest against their forest being decimated by contractors for the State’s Forest Department. The entire ecology of the region, and thus the local economy of these villagers, depended upon preserving the integrity of their forest. The eventual success of this self-organized environmental movement to protect their own natural resources from exploitation, became a (non-violent) model for future environmental activism throughout the world. Dirt!

The Movie--directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow--takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth's most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility--from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation.<br /> <br /> The opening scenes of the film dive into the wonderment of the soil. Made from the same elements as the stars, plants and animals, and us, "dirt is very much alive." Though, in modern industrial pursuits and clamor for both profit and natural resources, our human connection to and respect for soil has been disrupted. "Drought, climate change, even war are all directly related to the way we are treating dirt."<br /> <br /> DIRT! the Movie--narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis--brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.<br /> <br /> DIRT! the Movie is simply a movie about dirt. The real change lies in our notion of what dirt is. The movie teaches us: "When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked." But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT the Movie is a call to action.<br /> <br /> "The only remedy for disconnecting people from the natural world is connecting them to it again."<br /> <br /> What we've destroyed, we can heal.
