Green Sanctuary – Future Visions Film and Discussion SeriesBullshitBarun Mitra, ardent lobbyist for neo-liberal globalization, once presented the Indian nuclear physicist and anti-globalist, Vandana Shiva, with the Bullshit Award for Sustaining Poverty, because she
was talking “bullshit” about the negative consequences of globalization. Shiva mockingly retorted that “cow dung is the most beautiful material.” In her Indian ecological training institute Navdanya, which counts 20,000 members, the roof is made of cow dung. Starting there, the filmmakers follow the tireless activist for two years in her worldwide battle against the leaders of
globalization.In the discussion portion of the evening, a rep from OWS Trade Justice will discuss the environmental threat posed by the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive international trade and investment agreement currently being negotiated between the US and 10 other countries, with more expected to join.
