Folks are gathering all across the world in a couple of days for a peaceful demonstration ~ Everyday Joe’s and Jane’s wanting whole, natural foods. Most of the folks marching on Saturday are aware of the hidden dangers in our food, but for those who aren’t, bring your questions. You don’t know what you don’t know.
What is all the hub-bub about? Genetically modified organisms or GMO’s for short. What are they, you ask? Let’s let Jeffrey M. Smith explain it to you in this 1 minute video. We have reason to believe they affect our health, harm the soil, increase the need for more pesticide use, harm the Earth, and contaminate non-GMO crops. We want to educate folks on what other nations have found when they studied these organisms.
Locally, concerned citizens, activists, and fans will gather at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 2015 Grandin Rd. (the corner of Grandin Road and Brandon Ave) in Roanoke on Saturday, May 25th at 10 AM, and the march begins at 11 AM. For more details, visit the local Facebook Event page here. If you can’t join the March, show support by uploading a picture as your Facebook profile photo. Also, remember that we vote with every dollar we spend. Make those dollars count. Not in Roanoke? Find out where the March will be held in your neck of the woods by clicking here. Thank you Anthony Gucciardi of Nation of Change.
After the March, there will be a “Celebration of Organic Food” Potluck Picnic at Grandin Gardens (1731 Grandin Rd). If you would like to attend, please bring a covered organic dish to share—enough for about ten people.
