The DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition invites you to...
JUST VIEWS: a Free & Open
Monthly Video/ Discussion Progra


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 sponsored by the DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition and held at the Unitarian Church in Naperville IL at 4 S 535 Old Naperville Road (630/505-9408).
