JUST VIEWS: a Free &
Monthly Video/ Discussion Program
Friday May 11, 7:20 pm,
2007 -- Our Food's Safety and Security?
From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada
to the fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, tonight’s film shows the impacts of a
complex web of market and political forces on farmers and in turn on
consumers -- as multinational corporations largely control the world's
food system. A quiet revolution has occurred since the mid-1990s as
agribusinesses across North America have transformed the fare available
in super markets. Our film, The
Future of Food, which debuted in 2004, raises compelling questions
about the many unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered plants and
animals that are continuing to be incorporated into our daily diets.
Through discussion following, we’ll probe further: What are the
hypotheses and evidence to date about environmental and health impacts
of genetic alteration and / or use of chemical fertilizers and
pesticides? What are and should be governments’ roles? How do local,
organic and sustainable agriculture provides alternatives? Steve Tiwald
of the Green Earth Institute and other experts are invited to help us
explore all aspects of our own food safety and security, and global
considerations of economic and environmental responsibility.
These 2nd Friday evening Just Views programs start at 7:20 pm, are
