Setting The Record Straight With Poise and Grace

Vandana Shiva gets tough here and defends herself brilliantly against BBC’s Hard Talk’s BBC interviewer Sarah Montague.

This interviewer seems exceptionally intent on making a fool out of esteemed author and activist Vandana Shiva. Montague starts by demeaning the term “tree hugger”, ridiculing the whole environmental movement — and it gets worse from there.

But this clip is well worth it to see how Vandana Shiva deftly and confidently sets the BBC host straight on everything. From the suicide epidemic of Indian farmers to the truth of Monsanto’s crimes to the reality of global food trade, and where we can be headed next if we wake up and change course, Shiva holds her own with poise and grace, armed with all the facts.

It is inspiring to behold her in this challenging setting.
