On February 16, one of the richest men on earth, Bill Gates, will release his vision of climate solutions in his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”. Climate change is one of the crises used by Gates and his Foundation to justify urgent, technocratic “solutions” for altering food systems around the world. In response, AGRA Watch aims to amplify the work of social movements organizing in Seattle and around the world for Climate Justice. To counter top-down, billionaire expertise as the means of solving our world’s most pressing issues, panelists will present an alternative approach centered on Food Sovereignty, with communities leading the way to a climate just future.
Monday, February 15th is President’s Day. What better time than the week of President’s Day to get folks to sign a petition asking President Biden to be a #PlasticFreePresident?!
