Mission Statement: http://on.fb.me/10oCMRb

On May 23rd, 2015 millions of people across the world will stand together for the 3rd annual March Against Monsanto.

Our goal is to educate the citizens of Orlando about the adverse health effects associated with GMOs and expose Monsanto’s fraud and cronyism. We would like to inform the community about what they are putting in their bodies and encourage people to be the change they wish to see by supporting local farmers, voting with your dollar and growing your own food.

This is a peaceful march and family friendly event so don’t hesitate to bring the whole family!!

The event will begin at City Hall where we will rally and hear from guest speakers (see list below). Next we will march to Lake Eola and stop for a short break, then back to City Hall where we will conclude.

If anyone has extra suggestions please share them, this is an event for all of us and every voice matters. If you would like to help out in any way, please send us a private message or email mamorlando@yahoo.com. Thank you all!

PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS AND SHARE THIS EVENT. Help promote this event in any way you can. Thank you!!

WATER: Coolers will be set up at City Hall with water and organic tea donated by Dandelion Cafe.

SIGNS: There will be some markers and poster board available the day of the march. These are limited and are on a first come fist serve basis. Arrive early at 1PM if you would like to to take advantage of this, we will be there setting up. Please feel free to make your own signs beforehand as well. Don’t forget to WRITE BIG!!!

WHAT TO WEAR: Be creative but don’t forget to dress comfortably because it will most likely be hot the day of the march. Keep this in mind if you come dressed as a honey bee, butterfly, tomato, or in a hazmat suit.
