Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply

Program #SHIV005. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on March 16, 2000.

Multinational corporations are transforming global agriculture. Using the WTO as a wedge, they seek to patent seeds and life forms. Citizens from all over the world are questioning the impact of industrial agriculture and biotechnology on small farmers, the environment, and the quality and safety of food. Perhaps nowhere is resistance to the practices of giant agribusiness as strong as in India, where hundreds of thousands protest and demonstrate.
