March Against Monsanto is an international cellular network of activists with a mission to expose the biotech industry and it's government patsies for their corrupt plans to dominate the world's food supply.
We dance, play, educate, sing, eat, grow and MARCH against Monsanto, this Saturday, October 12th!

WHAT IS GMO:

Much of the food on our shelves has been produced from genetically
modified organisms (GMOs). GMO crops and animals have had specific
changes made to their DNA by splicing in genes from other species,
including plants, animals, bacteria and viruses!

IMAGINE THERE'S INSECTICIDE-PRODUCING FISH GENES ... IN YOUR SALAD!

These combinations do not occur in nature or through traditional
crossbreeding and only recently has there been any 3rd-party study on the effects. So far there’s been only horrific realizations.

WHAT IS MONSANTO:

Since opening their doors in 1901, Monsanto has made carpets, plastics, agri chemicals and more. Now it has its hands in the Genetic Modification of our crops and domination of our food supply.
They CLAIM to provide higher yields for farmers, flaunting their genetically
mutated, “RoundUp Ready” crops as well as their FrankenFood varieties that
literally ooze toxic pesticide from every cell!So far the yields are proving no higher than organic methods and while Monsanto sells all the more of their chemicals, daily we eat food made by the same people who brought us Aspartame, BPA, rBGH & Agent Orange!

WHY WE MARCH:

* Protect our Food Supply from Poison, Corruption and Domination
* Support our Local Farmers and Encourage more Organic Farming
* Protect Our Beautiful Planet as She Protects Us
* Spread Awareness about the Harmful Effects of GMO Foods
* Promote and Educate on Organic, Sustainable Solutions
* Expose the Cronyism between Big Business and the Government
* Bring Accountability to those Responsible for the Corruption

Come together in global solidarity against Monsanto and the Corporate domination of our food system!

OCTOBER 12TH 2013, GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE (South End) 11AM!

This will be a peaceful act of communication. Bring your families and friends!
Creative Bee Costumes Enthusiastically Encouraged!
