Food rally takes place May 23
Twin Ports residents will join a worldwide demonstration against the practices of Monsanto Company 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 23 at Lake Avenue and Superior Street.
A march will take place noon to 1 p.m.
Monsanto is a leading producer of genetically engineered seeds and of herbicides. Organizers seek policy changes that include mandatory labelling of all genetically modified ingredients in food and seeds, reducing subsidies to large agricultural companies, supporting local economies and making whole foods affordable and accessible to all consumers regardless of income.
Farmers, musicians, artists and organizations are invited to present, perform or bring samples and informational materials. Contact emcee Abby Splittstoesser at (507) 884-9408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
