Hi! My name is Vandana Shiva and I fight against the agrochemical companies and I work for the seeds and the soil.
Vandana Shiva was born in Dehradun, India. Her father and her mother gave her a love of nature. Shiva studied at St. Mary's School in Nainital, and at the Convent of Jesus and Mary in Dehradun.
Currently, she fights against government policies that allow agrochemical companies like Monsanto and Dow to force the farmers to buy their seeds and pesticides. Farmers in India found themselves with large debts to these companies and more than 200 000 farmers there have committed suicide, because of these debts.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Navdanya is a network of seed keepers and organic producters in India. Through Navdanya, Shiva teaches farmers techniques in organic farming and supports biological and cultural divercity.
Okay! Were all done unloading the truck!
We are either going to have a future where women lead the way to make peace with the Earth or we are not going to have a human future at all!
