Join The Food Justice Coalition as we go to D.C. to fight The DARK Act! Friday will be a day of action and Saturday will be The Food Justice Rally with speakers beginning at noon until 1:30pm.
Food Justice Action: 2-Day Schedule of Events
On Friday, Oct. 16th, Truth in Labeling and Moms Across America are organizing lobbying groups to meet with Senators to lobby for the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act. They are also organizing buses with the option for either a round-trip ride or a one-way ride if you stay over for Saturday.
***Note that we have moved the narrative march portion of this action to Friday, Oct. 16th.*** We believe we will have far more of an impact doing the narrative march while the locations we are targeting are open for business. There will be a second march following the rally on Saturday.
We ask all participants to meet at Lafayette Park about 3 p.m. We will begin the march at USTR and the Chamber of Commerce. Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese will speak about the TPP. Then we’ll head to Monsanto to occupy the building while a presentation is given. We are being a bit quiet on specifics as our groups and event pages have been infiltrated by Monsanto shills, but expect some cool visuals. From the Monsanto building, we will head to the EPA (about 5 p.m., as a point of reference). Zen Honeycutt will speak about glyphosate, recent testing and the EPA’s lackadaisical attitude towards a solution. We are asking participants to consider dressing as bees so we can do a bee die-in in the lobby of the EPA. After the EPA, we will head to the White House. Please bring a flashlight so you can help us Shine A Light On The DARK Act. We will have the advantage of rush hour traffic at this point and we believe this unique form of protest will have a stunning visual impact! If you can’t make it, but still want to contribute, you can donate here.
On Saturday, October 17th, the Food Justice Rally starts at noon sharp on the West Lawn of the Capitol building. Know that the permit begins at 10am and I encourage you to come early and take part in education workshops that MAMNYC is organizing. I’ll be speaking alongside other grassroots activists like Steven Druker and Anthony Gucciardi. After the rally, there will be a unity march through the streets of D.C. ***Please bring flashlights, signs, and any banners you may have!***
