25 February 2021. On February 16, Bill Gates, will release his vision of climate solutions in his newbook, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”. Climate change is one of the crises used by Gates and his Foundation to justify urgent, technocratic “solutions” for altering food systems around the world.
In response, AGRA Watch (a campaign of Community Alliance for Global Justice) aims to amplify the work of social movements organizing in Seattle and around the world for Climate Justice.
