Vandana Shiva Lecture at MSU

In this lecture at Michigan State University, environmental activist, author, and eco-feminist Vandana Shiva talks about her environmental activism. Rooted in a discussion of environmental struggles in her home country of India, Shiva expands her discussion by placing environmental activism into a larger context of globalization and capitalism. Shiva offers an interesting critique of market defined “sustainability” before moving into a lengthy discussion of corporate attempts–such as those by Monsanto and Coca-Cola–to privatize water.
