GMO Group Plans Arcata March
Kym Kemp / Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 @ 10:02 p.m. / News
October 16th is World Food Day. Come out to show your support for Proposition 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.We will begin our march from the Arcata Plaza to HSU at noon on October 16th. This is a peaceful demonstration to show the level of local support for GMO labeling and to draw attention to the fact that the President of HSU has spoken out against Prop 37. Rollin Richmond doesn’t think we have the right to know whether the food we are eating and feeding our children has been Genetically Engineered. He says people who question the safety of GMOs are “anti-science” and describes Proposition 37 as “similar to efforts of unthinking religious people to ban stem cell research.”Does this describe your stance on Labeling GMOs? Tell him how you feel!
Join us with signs and smiles to raise awareness about Proposition 37.
When: 12 noon to 3pm, October 16th
Where: Meet at Arcata Plaza, then march to HSU and back to the PlazaFor more information, contact Isis Austin at 223-3469 or firstname.lastname@example.org
