“The Fight Against Monsanto” explores the best strategies for winning the struggle for healthy foods and a clean environment. It draws on lessons from activists as well as scientists, and calls for new, holistic and radical approaches for defending life on this planet against ‘the poison cartel’ to bring about a future worth living in.

In 2001, he ran for Mayor of NYC as one of five Green Party candidates, edited the national newspaper Green Politix, and was a founder of the Red Balloon Collective (1969) at SUNY Stony Brook.

with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Vietnam antiwar movements.
