100% cotton. Made in India

An estimated 290,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide in 20 years. Small farms used to be the country’s economic backbone, but now owners struggle to make even a meager profit and drown in debt. For some, the pressure is too much. Many blame GMO cotton for the failing farms, having cornered the market and replaced organic crops; they have failed to live up to expectations.

Watch “100% cotton. Made in India” on the RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,
