Sydney Peace Prize

Program #SHIV015. Recorded in Sydney, Australia on November 03, 2010.

Vandana Shiva's powerful Sydney Peace Prize lecture "must be one of the best human rights and earth rights speeches of the year," says Eco Walk the Talk, environmental website with an Asia focus. Shiva says in her remarks, "When we think of wars in our times, our minds turn to Iraq and Afghanistan. But the bigger war is the war against the planet. This war has its roots in an economy that fails to respect ecological and ethical limits – limits to inequality, limits to injustice, limits to greed and economic concentration. A handful of corporations and of powerful countries seeks to control the earth's resources and transform the planet into a supermarket in which everything is for sale. They want to sell our water, genes, cells, organs, knowledge, cultures and future."
