# MAMNYC March Against Monsanto

FOR ACTIVIST, AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS

NYC communities and allies,

On May 25, 2013, five thousand New Yorkers joined over two million people across the world to MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO, the multinational agro-business that has a stranglehold on our global food supply. The coalition we have formed is large and includes parents, farmers, doctors, Vietnam Veterans, and activists against cronyism, business in politics, intellectual property law, and many other fields.

On October 5, we ask our allies to join together to create a shared vision of a MONSANTO-FREE NYC, and on October 12 we will again MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO.

Our visioning process will allow us as community stakes-holders to share their ideas for how to rid New York City of Monsanto agricultural products and businesses. We call upon all those who eat food in New York City, including parents, students, localvores, community organizers, health advocates, grocers, leaders of the food supply chain, and food service business leaders. We invite you to bring practical, real world solutions for a sustainable, healthy and corporate greed-free food supply in New York City. Do you want to present your ideas? Workshop? Set up a display? Pass out literature? Let us know!

The next Saturday, October 12, we will bring this shared vision to the city in words, song, and creative action in a permitted march meeting in Bryant Park.

In solidarity,

MAMNYC organizers
