Hey,

Similarly, I was thrilled about Paul Stamets coming to down, then appalled by the sponsorship.
The only right course of action is to organize a protest on the fly that would precede the event-- picket signs and chants and a banner, perhaps.
"Down with Dow!", "Just say no to GMOs!", etc.
If anyone attended the worldwide anti-GMO protest on October 12th, 2013 here in Philly, it could be an echo of that.
And then we all pile in to hear the wonderful and wise teachings of Mr. Stamets and mingle with local radical mycologists!
I have drums I could bring. I'm also pretty well connected with the W Philly activist scene and could potentially round up a decent group of rabble rousers.

I raced to purchase my tickets and only afterwords found out from an organic farmer friend that this event is actually being hosted by none other than Dow Chemicals. The next Monsanto messing with GMO and agricultural herbisides, pesticides that are linked to ADHD, cancers etc. It's horrible that Paul, an organic mycologist would even entertain beginning involved. I will not be attending purely on the Dow Chemicals sponsorship and hope others release whom they are supporting. Best wishes
