Mamiya To Host Food Activist Shiva Jan. 21

The Vandana Shiva Home Tour will make two stops on Oahu Jan. 21 — including a nighttime talk story session at Mamiya Theatre.

Vandana Shiva, a food sovereignty activist and author, will look to bring awareness to the dangers of pesticide use coupled with genetically modified foods. She’ll head a free Home Rule Tour rally at the State Capitol from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. before heading to the Kaimuki theater for a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m. and presentation at 7, with entertainment by Makana.

Admission is $45 for the whole evening and $15 for the presentation only. To purchase tickets and obtain more information, visit vandanashivahomeruletour.eventbrite.com.

Shiva, who also is founder and director of Navdanya International and was one of Forbes Magazine‘s 2010 “Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe,” last visited Hawaii in 2013 for her Raise Awareness, Inspire Change tour.
