Purpose:

•To Express outright condemnation of recent unlawful, immoral and unjust laws (H.R. 933: Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013- Farmer Assurance Provision, Section 735), allowing Monsanto and other agribusiness giants to promote and plant Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds while being free from litigation that might prove their products unsafe for human consumption.

• Exercising our freedom of choice, WE demand products containing GMO’s to be labeled
•Until that time, WE call for the immediate Expulsion of all GMO Foods from Metro Richmond, VA!

This nonviolent rally will focus on spreading awareness of Monsanto and corporate agriculture and the harmful effects of GMO seeds on our environment, organic farmers/farms, and our bodies. Participants will be providing information on Monsanto’s corporate crimes against humanity and attacks on our freedom of food choice as well as healthy food alternatives in the Richmond Area (farmers’ markets, Community Supported Agriculture, Seed sharing, organic options, gardens and urban agriculture).
