Vandana Shiva speaks at ECONOMICS OF PEACE CONFERENCE, presented by Praxis Peace Institute
Last night I heard physicist Vandana Shiva speak at the Economics of Peace Conference in Sonoma. She is a brilliant, articulate example of a woman who speaks truth to power, and seems to revel in it. To me, she is Durga embodied, and I see her as a great source of inspiration and hope in the struggle for a humane and ecologically sustainable planet. Next time I travel to India, I hope to participate in one of the courses offered at her farm in Dehradun, Uttaranchal, India.
Take a look at her website and see for yourself the wonderful work she is doing. She did not mention anything specifically about bees, but she didn't need to. Her work is integrally tied up with the fate of the bees, and vice versa. Everything she speaks about and advocates for, if enacted, would help the survival of the bees, not to mention all of the world and humanity.
She has written many books...see further on her blog and website:
