Book Launch: Philanthrocapitalism and the Erosion of Democracy, edited by Vandana Shiva

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST

Free

Join YES! and Synergetic Press for the launch of a new book edited by Vandana Shiva: Philanthrocapitalism and the Erosion of Democracy. AGRA Watch contributed our research which exposes how the Gates Foundation uses the cover of an institution of higher education – Cornell University – to spread its propaganda favoring industrial agriculture, GMOs and the global food marketplace.

Global capitalists wield philanthropy to monopolize and privatize land use, food production, and the public health sector. Join a conversation with Vandana Shiva and CAGJ’s Director, Heather Day, to learn about this dangerous trend—and how global citizens are fighting back.

The conversation will be moderated by Breanna Draxler, senior editor at YES! Media.

This event is FREE and will take place via Zoom. Get your FREE ticket here.
