Vandana Shiva Message to Sacred Economy Satyagrahi’s

America’s Super-Rich See Their Wealth Rise by $282 Billion in Three Weeks of Pandemic  :

These are the main players of the Rakshashi economy that you call the monster economy.
They are planning to destroy all work , all local economies, all freedom, all forms of Swaraj.
Our Satyagraha for life will need to protect nature, protect land rights of tribals and peasants, creation of work opportunities through a sacred economy specially food and crafts, everything all hand made sectors There will be attempts to make these illegal as they tried making saving seeds Illegal and we did the Bija Satyagraha . Or the FSSAI rules that make artisanal food illegal and we had to do a Satyagraha for Gandhi’s Ghani. Or demonetisation making cash illegal.

We need a Satyagraha for life and livelihoods , and for indigenous ways of knowing . The imposition of the digital economy for mining data and surveillance is not just taking away our freedoms , but children made to learn digitally means the poor will be denied their right to education and the others will loose their creative , synthesising capacities.

We are at the most serious watershed that humanity has faced . And only the power of Satyagraha and imagination dedicated to creating sacred economies will give hope and courage to all of humanity
Pl let me know what are the next steps you plan and we should take collectively.

With love
