Coming on the heels of the Global Marijuana March is the global March Against Monsanto. The NEWS was at Laguna for theirs.
After getting the word out, it was ‘Monsanto Avengers Assemble’ under beautiful blue beach skies and crisp air warmed to the sun.
The assembled group at Laguna Beach amassed along the sidewalk curve of the beach to support sounded from car horns and cheers.
Then it was time to march against Monsanto.
Most everyone wanted a sign to carry.
One local artist resident joined the march, knowing the cause.
We got rhythm to chant to, from another local, so the beat went on.
Event coordinators Carol Fant, left, and John Diaz, right, spend months lining up the event and speaker session with the city.
Whole families who are now aware came to be a part of the march.
Returning to the beach area after the demonstration march, we heard first from Brett Wilcox, author of two books exposing Monsanto’s lies.
Radio host professor Peter Mathews spoke and then opened up the floor for questions, because Monsanto is a complicated monster [see complete history here], with the most poignant coming from children.
The next generation of Monsanto protestors gets ready.
Then it was time for the finish group shot wrap-up.
Here’s what you can do now.
