Bonus Episode 47: Carol Blake | Millions Against Monsanto March | May 23, 2015
Carol Blake is a local activist and environmentalist here to talk to us about the Millions Against Monsanto March. It’s an event that was first held in 2013, worldwide that is being held in over 330 cities this weekend on Saturday May 23, 2015. To protest Monsanto taking over our food supply with Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs.
And GMO’s are basically an unnatural, produced substance that is being injected into our food supply and they are very secretive about the whole thing, not very many people know about it. A lot of people think it’s the same thing as hybridization of foods, where you breed a plant or animal for a certain characteristic but no this is taking two different species and joining them together, and the problem is that there is not any labeling of them or any testing.
We are going to have 4 speakers at our event on Sat 11-2 in Riverside Park here in Eureka, music, information, raffle, speakers, organic popcorn. Carol is going to be one of the speakers and is going to read a little part of her speech:
