Interview with Vandana Shiva: scientist, philosopher, feminist, author, environmentalist, activist. Shiva is a one-woman movement for peace, sustainability and social justice. Hearing the leaders of world agri-business describe their plan to control the world's supply of food and pharmaceuticals through the use of patented, genetically-engineered seeds, she founded the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, dedicated to opposing such ventures. Shiva is also the founder of Navdanya, a national movement in India to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources, especially native seeds, and to oppose what she calls the colonization of life itself under the intellectual property and patent laws of the World Trade Organization agreement. Today, she is one of the world's most famous and effective advocates for bio-ethics, eco-feminism, and genetic biodiversity.
