Topic: The Alarming Effects
Of the Corporatization of our Food Supply
Two speakers on the corporatization of our food supply will help us understand the poisoning of our food by Agribusiness through Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). Just as we head into a battle for our food supply in the upcoming election (Prop. 37: The Right to Know what’s in our Food act), Maria Gilardin, radio broadcaster at KALW and TUC radio, and authority on corporate global dominance in the areas of food, water, indigenous rights, banking and more, will expose the shocking story of corporate control of our food. GMOs are found in 95% of American households & have alarming effects on human health, air, land, water and ecosystems.
Maria will be joined by Christine Garcia, who will speak to us about Confined Animal Feeding Operations. CAFOs contaminate 40 percent of U.S. drinking water, create 2.7 trillion pounds of waste annually, create anti-biotic resistant bacteria, & confine billions of sentient animals to torture warehouses. Christine Garcia, Esq. has successfully defended animals and animal rights activists from abuse by corporations, government, and Universities through civil rights, consumer & tort laws for over ten years.
All are invited to join in the discussion.
We will have cushions, blankets to keep you warm, amplified sound, and peacekeepers to keep it alcohol, interruption, & smoke-free.
