Your Call 101707 A conversation with Indian activist Vandana Shiva

What are the important issues affecting India’s farmers today? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Indian activist and physicist Dr. Vandana Shiva. One in six people on earth live in India and more than half of the country's population of 1.1 billion depend on agriculture for their living. What are the main ecological and political issues affecting India today? Why have Shiva's projects combating GMOs and monocrops been so effective? And what advice does she have for environmentalists here in the U.S.? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
