Violence takes many forms - physical... symbolic...structural. Hunger is a structural violence resulting from current international trade laws formulated by corporate greed. The various forms of violence also implies that the moral activists around the world cannot afford to focus on only one front - while neglecting other - of the prevailing global injustice. --- Across the world food riots are taking place. Scientist and activist Vandana Shiva explores whether the future will be one of food wars or food peace. She argues that the creation of food peace demands a major shift in the way food is produced and distributed and the way in which we manage and use the soil water and biodiversity which makes food production possible. 17th Annual Margolis lecture at UC Irvine.
