WE MUST FIGHT THE ONE PERCENT
TO STOP MASS EXTINCTION
World-renowned environmental leader and ecologist, Dr. Vandana Shiva, says the following about the One Percent. "The one percent, of course, is the symbol of the concentration of wealth under the rules of the neoliberal economies, that are basically, on the one hand, turning every natural resource into a war zone. "
She speaks more about this in an interview with Democracy Now, and talks directly about her own experience, in terms or protecting the freedom of seeds.
"And every indicator is showing we are not just in a severe climate catastrophe; we are in the sixth mass extinction. And both the species extinction and the climate catastrophe are two sides of the same coin."
In her most recent book, Oneness vs. the 1%, she states there is a "recognition that, A, we are part of one planet, and we are one humanity. And unless we live with that consciousness and shape every moment of our production and consumption with that consciousness, we are going to destroy ourselves, which we are. The melting of the glaciers is one of the very severe indicators."
