Sat, May 24th, 1-4PM: March Against Monsanto

TPP will be among the focal issues for this march. TradeJustice activists will be at the march to present teach-ins, distribute literature and encourage participants to sign form letters explaining urging Congress to stop Monsanto's TPP attack on food safety. When you arrive, call us so we can meet you in the crowd and give you signs, leaflets, etc. Malu Huacuja del Toro (Zapatista solidarity activist) will speak on the link between NAFTA, TPP, and Monsanto and Malu and Adam Weissman will lead in-depth breakout discussions on why Monsanto supports free trade agreements like TPP and how we can stop them. Volunteers are needed for anti-TPP street theater and fliering and petitioning vs. TPP and Monsanto. Please call in advance if you'd like to participate and be sure to see us out at the march!

Location: Union Square, 14th Street and Broadway

Directions: N, R, Q, 4,5, 6, or L to 14th Street-Union Square.

We'll be tabling outside the Left Forum throughout the weekend.

If you plan on attending the Forum, you can also help get the word out inside – we can give you clipboard, letters, and literature to take in with you. Please contact us IN ADVANCE if you'd like to help – either outside or inside.
