Cleveland's first March was a great success and we hope you'll join us for our second March this coming October!
For more information, questions, comments, and concerns please contact Jennifer Catherine, Kalina Barton Jones, or Hannah Rose
There will be music and speakers at the park so marching is NOT required!
Why We March -
Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-lead research on the long-term effects of GMO products.
Recently, the U.S. Congress and president collectively passed the nicknamed “Monsanto Protection Act” that, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and genetic makeup.
Monsanto’s GMO seeds are harmful to the environment; for example, scientists have indicated they have caused colony collapse among the world’s bee population.
Don't forget to bring your signs and wear your shirt! T-Shirts can be red with white tape saying something like "NO GMOs" and "SAY NO TO MONSANTO" Or a White T-Shirt with Red tape! You can also go on line and order a March Against Monsanto specialty shirt. http://www.zazzle.com/monsanto+tshirts. Keep the signs and shirts "clean" as it's a family event!
