What we get wrong about the Gates Foundation


Published on Oct 23, 2014

Some food activists are extremely worried about all the money the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives to help farmers. It’s one thing to protest extractive companies cutting corners to make a profit, and quite another to protest an organization that aims to improve the world. I wanted to know what was going on. I looked closely at the concerns about the Gates Foundation a few months back, in this story (http://grist.org/food/teaching-a-humo…).

But we know that not everyone likes to read thousands of words on the internet — so we’ve boiled it down to some of the key points in this video. Hope you like it!
