The Politics of Pesticides Reading and Book Signing

Join us for a reading and book signing of The Fight Against Monsanto's Roundup: The Politics of Pesticides, written and edited by Mitchel Cohen, with forward by Vandana Shiva, published by Skyhorse Publishing, 2019.

The Fight Against Monsanto's Roundup: The Politics of Pesticides deals with the infiltration of chemical poisons into all facets of our lives – from our homes, farms and work places, to our schools, parks, even the air we breathe...And how activists and ordinary people are rising up to fight back against massive toxic damage to our foods, drinking water and air, our children's and workers' health, and the devastating effects on bee colonies, butterflies, and multiple animals and plants facing very real, and possibly soon, species extinction.....All from massive pesticide poisoning, driven solely by the relentless corporate greed of dominant chemical mega-corporations, especially Monsanto and Bayer (which bought Monsanto last year, making it the world's largest behemoth pesticide poisoner – yet locally, Bayer continues to expand its large bio-tech campus in west Berkeley, with the enthusiastic support of local politicians....)
