Dr Vandana Shiva’s message for the public presentation of Monsanto Tribunal judges advisory legal opinion
Today on the 18th April 2017 the opinion from the jury of the Monsanto tribunal is being announced on a historic day. It is on this day 100 years ago Gandhi started the Champaran Satyagraha by telling the British empire that he could not obey their brutal laws because he had to obey the higher law of life, justice and his conscience.
In Gandhi’s spirit we follow the higher law of the earth, of our common humanity, of justice, peace and sustainability
Through the Monsanto Tribunal and 1000s of Peoples Assemblies we are telling Monsanto Bayer and the Poison Cartel that we will end their century of ecocide and genocide, their corporate rule over our agriculture and food, and establish Earth Democracy, following through seed freedom and food freedom.
Vandana Shiva, From Bihar, Mothihari from the Satyagraha Yatra 18.4.17
