Farmers in India are at great risk, says Medha Patkar, award winning social activist warning against the dangers of globalization and industrialized food systems in "A Threat to Living Communities". In this film, Patkar speaks to us from the major protest "Action 2007" in New Delhi, India where hundreds of local farmers and community organizations gathered to assert their "right to life and livelihood" in the face of the development paradigm undermining sustainability and threatening to destroy living communities.
