Join us in the annual March Against Monsato on Saturday

Dear editor,

There are many problems, to address in our time on Planet Earth. Some (many of us?) are content just to keep our heads down, and try to get by. It’s not easy.

Others feel the call to take action – write letters, circulate petitions, speak to city councils, and yes, march in the streets.  As part of a campaign to encourage a GE-free purchasing policy, the March Against Monsanto is an annual event.

This Saturday, March Against Monsanto, May 23, starts at noon in Simms Park, next to the Fifth Street Bridge. Activities include songs, speeches, sign-making and feeling inspired. At 1 p.m., we will depart, walking from Simms Park, along Comox Road to the 17th Street Bridge, and back along Cliffe, stopping at City Hall. All marchers will be on the sidewalks, and following pedestrian protocol.

Please join us to support and world free of genetically engineered foods. Stop the use of glyphosate pesticide in Roundup Ready soy, corn and canola.

Susan Holvenstot
