Enter Vandana Shiva
At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg 2002, Shiva was awarded by the Liberty Institute of New Delhi, India, the Bullshit Award for Sustaining Poverty for, they claim, her "important contribution to sustaining poverty around the world, in her role as a mouthpiece of western eco-imperialism". Their press release on the award states, "Millions of people rely on backbreaking labor and low-intensity subsistence farming, not out of choice but out of necessity, yet Ms. Shiva claims that modern agricultural technologies are too dangerous for the poor... Farmers are choosing modern agricultural technologies out of their own free will - and for good reasons. And by so doing they are benefiting the environment. Low intensity farming not only hurts farmers, but also endangers environmental quality. Poverty and environmental degradation go hand in hand - and modern technologies alleviate poverty and enable environmental protection." Other award nominees included Greenpeace International, BioWatch, SAFeAGE, and the Third World Network
