March Against Monsanto 2017
Riding on the tsunami of global change, let's make The 5th Annual Miami March Against Monsanto-Bayer on May 20th a phenomenal success this year!
The eyes of the world will be on us Miami, let's really shine! In previous years we have had 2000 people march in Miami alone and over 10,000 people across our great state!
Help us make this march the strongest impact ever!
We need your support to help us spread the word and cover costs of the march.
We are very excited to announce that that infamous Reverend Billy will be speaking and performing at the march! Please help us secure the funds to bring the rest of his performance troupe, The Stop Shopping Choir. They are a renowned New York City based radical performance community. We are so very lucky to have them be part of our March Against Monsanto.
We are also raising money to purchase organic t-shirts, flyers and other marketing materials as well as funding for our children's education and growing programs in schools
We are joining over millions of people, in over 600 protests worldwide!
South Florida's diversity is the strength of our community. Once a year we come together to march in solidarity for our health, our well being and our planet. We join millions of people around the world and create a collective ROAR, chanting, singing, dancing and marching down city streets.
The March Against Monsanto Bayer is not only a protest, but also a way to educate the citizens of Miami and beyond. With knowledge we have power and are empowered. People have the right to know about the adverse health effects associated with GMOs and Monsanto's corrupt business practices.
Protestors are protectors.
Help us protect our food supply.
Planning an event of this magnitude requires time and money to make it a Success. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, will help to cover out-of-pocket costs. The producers of the march are all unpaid volunteers. Your contribution covers costs including: advertising and promotion, and operational costs.
WHY DO 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-led 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.
WHAT ARE THE SOLUTIONS WE ADVOCATE?
*Voting with your dollar by buying organic & Non-GMO project label, supporting your local organic farmers & boycotting Monsanto-owned companies that use GMOs in their products.
*Labeling of GMOs so that consumers can make those informed decisions easier.
*Repealing relevant provisions of the US's "Monsanto Protection Act."
*Calling for further scientific research on the health effects of GMOs.
*Holding Monsanto executives and Monsanto-supporting politicians accountable through direct communication, grassroots journalism, social media, etc.
*Continuing to inform the public about Monsanto's secrets.
*Taking to the streets to show the world and Monsanto that we won't take these injustices quietly.
*We will not stand for cronyism. We will not stand for poison. That’s why we March Against Monsanto.
