Earth Democracy free pdf World-renowned environmental activist and physicist Vandana Shiva calls for a radical shift in the values that govern democracies, condemning the role that unrestricted capitalism has played in the destruction of environments and livelihoods.She explores the issues she helped bring to international attention genetic food engineering, culture theft, and natural resource privatization uncovering their links to the rising tide of fundamentalism, violence against women, and planetary death. Struggles on the streets of Seattle and Cancun and in homes and farms across the world have yielded a set of principles based on inclusion, nonviolence, reclaiming the commons, and freely sharing the earth s resources. These ideals, which Dr. Shiva calls Earth Democracy, serve as an urgent call to peace and as the basis for a just and sustainable future."
