Important Event

Dr. Shiva in Seattle on Saturday Jul 25th (The Day Out
of Time, interestingly)

Dear Friends and Colleagues–

Want you to know that Dr. Vandana Shiva–a brilliant,
articulate, and significant international voice, will
be speaking on Sunday, July 25, at 2:30 pm in Kane
Hall (U of W).

We have just learned that she is currently involved in
high-level, national conversations in India, because
these issues have come to a point of cirses there. So
her visit here is very timely. Please pass this to
your networks as it promises to be an important and
informing event about matters that are finally
critical for all of us.

I hope you will be able to attend and will encourage
others to join you,
