March 26th: "Rally for the Right to Know" – Salem, OR

This is provided to us by a local Eugene Chapter member who will be attending this anti-GMO rally in Salem next weekend:

Saturday, March 26 · 12:00pm – 3:00pm
900 Court St. NE, Salem, Oregon 97301

We want Truth in Labeling so we will know what is in the foods we are buying. This rally will coincide with the national Rally being held in Washington, DC. Everyone is encouraged to attend!

These are our demands:

  1. We have the right to know and want GMOs labeled.
  2. We want factory farmed animal products labeled
  3. We want independent, long-term studies done on the safety of GMOs.
  4. We want organics preserved.

-Make intelligent signs with facts about Monsanto and their impact.
-Make hoodies or jackets with Millions against Monsanto on it.
-Read up and be prepared with some talking points about the issues.
-Remain peaceful and non-violent at all times.
-Prepare fliers to distribute that inform people about Monsanto, links to further reading, suggestions of books and articles, etc.
-Genetically modified foods are not safe, for the environment, or for people.
-Genetically modified foods should be forced to be labeled as such.
-We are tired of Monsanto’s monopoly on the food industry and it’s hold over the FDA and the White House.
-We want people to become informed about Monsanto and the food industry in general.
