Desperate Passions and Direct Actions

Program #CALH008. Recorded in Boulder, CO on May 18, 2001.

Our planet is becoming increasingly polluted and unalterably changed. Governments seem more intent on promoting and protecting corporate interests than those of the citizenry. While corporations experiment with our food supply and find more markets for their ever-expanding arsenals of chemicals, we bear the financial burdens of cleaning up the toxic soup. We also face an epidemic of cancer and other illnesses related to the devastation of our environment as legislators loosen and overturn protective laws.
