Eating Tomorrow: The Battle for the Future of Food in Africa
October 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$5
CAGJ/AGRA Watch are very excited to welcome to Seattle Million Belay, Coordinator of the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa, and Tim Wise, author of Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food (New Press 2019). Belay and Wise will engage in a conversation on the themes of the book, which features stories of the victims of land-grabbing in Mozambique, Monsanto officials trying to push genetically modified corn into Mexico, and Malawian farmers trying to preserve and promote their nutritious native seeds. Read Wise’s recent article about a much-anticipated UN report on agroecology, and his article on how BigAg is sabotaging progress on climate change.
