MORE PROFITS, MORE HUGER: NEOLIBERALISM AND THE CORPORATE CONTROL OF FOOD, LESSONS FROM INDIA AND THE U.S.
Arun Gupta, Nancy Romer & Devinder Sharma
Moderated by Vinay Gidwani
Often called the “Green Chomsky” Devinder Sharma will discuss how U.S.-sponsored neoliberal policies have willfully marginalized farming communities, damaging rural livelihoods and aggravating food insecurity in India and the world over. Accompanied by Arun Gupta, reporter and an editor at The Indypendent, Nancy Romer, leading Organizer of the Brooklyn Food Coalition, and other leading U.S. food justice activists, this event will highlight the role that U.S. agribusiness corporations have played, and continue to play, in shaping policies that have exacerbated hunger and poverty, and driven us into a global food crisis. The event will map the network of powerful corporations, institutions, and interest groups who are driving U.S. policies; and begin a dialogue on how to build strategic alliances between anti-corporate struggles in India and organizations and individuals in the U.S. who are committed to stopping the global expansion of U.S.-led agricultural neoliberalism.
