All funds raised will go directly to help with logistics (materials, permits, etc) for the march.
It's almost time!! Please remember to invite your friends and share this event with everyone you know!
In solidarity with the global movement to take back our food, that is... REAL FOOD FROM REAL SEED as Mother Nature and human evolution intended...
Please save the date and take part in the groundswell of PEOPLE RISING in defense of unadulterated SEEDS, PROTECTION OF BIODIVERSITY, RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP OF THE SOIL, ETHICAL PRACTICES, TOXIN FREE FOOD SYSTEM AND THE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE WE ALL WANT.
Millions of years of natural evolution and diversity of seeds are being wiped out in a generation if we don't leverage our collective outrage to DIVEST from systematic poisoning of HUMANITY and PROTECT our children's future.
Join us as we MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO!
All inclusive Bay Area community, organic farmers, bee keepers, seed savers, defenders of the soil, children, parents, grand parents, defenders of the soil and biodiversity, advocate for a GMO free future, gardening groups, college clubs, demanding a just and sustainable food system for EVERYONE OF US.
Home made signs, costumes and strollers all encouraged. Family friendly peaceful protest.
“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.”
