Dr. Vandana Shiva speaks about the recent avalanche in Uttarakhand which has left hundreds missing and the causes behind it. How the World Bank’s actions in the 1991 was arguably the start of Indian farmers vs global capitalism. Why India’s farmers are organising en masse to oppose Modi’s neoliberal farming laws, 1 in 4 farmers on Earth being Indian. Multinational farming corporations and their war on India’s independent farmers. The history of the spread of GMO technology such as ‘Roundup’. Why a transition away from industrial farming back to small-scale farming is needed to fight climate change.
The Jimmy Dore Show When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.
