Earth Democracy

"We are voting every moment by the way we live our lives, this is the place of democracy and freedom"


OUTSOURCING POLLUTION TO THE THIRD WORLD

EARTH DEMOCRACY

Shiva describes the current systems of democracy worldwide as a sham. Representative democracy has been hijacked by an ‘economic dictatorship.’ This has been led by a handful of multinational corporations. Our financial institutions and international trade treaties help ensure their dominance in key sectors such as water, food and energy. She calls for a deeper democracy which recognizes the value of all living systems upon which human welfare and survival wholly depends.
