|Organizer/Author||March Against Monsanto SC|
This is a local event that is a part of an INTERNATIONAL, world changing movement to promote healthier lifestyles free of pesticide and GMO contamination!Added to the calendar on Monday May 16th, 2016 2:26 PM
ALL ARE WELCOME! This is a demographically diverse event for families, disabled people, and all walks of life.
COME OUT IN YOUR CREATIVE COSTUMES (zombie, biohazard worker, bee, butterfly, mutant animal, you get the idea ;) )!
We will have face masks available to everyone who wants to show a visual impact of how WE ARE SICK OF BEING POISONED BY ROUNDUP AND GMO's!
We will set up the poster/banner/sign creation station at 12:30 at San Lorenzo Park, on the grassy area between the duck pond and the playground. If you can create one in advanced, more power to you!
At 2:00ish, we will begin the march towards Pacific ave. The specific route will be mapped out soon and available to everyone.
At 3:00ish, we will end our march at the townclock tower, where we will continue our activities until 4:00pm.
Clean up will be from 4:00-4:30, when our permit time will end.
WHAT WE NEED:
-VOLUNTEERS: 5 workers to wear orange safety vests to ensure safe crossing at stop signs on Pacific
-SPONSORS: Please spread the word so we can get whatever support we can from local businesses. This is a great opportunity for them to show the community that their company supports organic practices! They can come out and carry a sign with their business name and hand out samples of their products.
Together we can literally take collective steps towards a healthier, liberated planet!
