Our goal is to have another amazing community event, with all of our collective, diverse groups gathering together under the Adrienne Arsht Metro Mover to march in solidarity for the health of our people, our water, soil & planet, our farmers around the world and to save biodiversity of seeds, stop the genetically Modified mosquitoes and to educate the citizens of Miami about the adverse health effects associated with GMOs & glyphosate and expose Monsanto’s corrupt business practices.

We are very excited to announce that that infamous Reverend Billy of the The Stop Shopping Choir will be speaking and performing at the march! Please help us secure the funds to bring him here. They are a renowned New York City based radical performance community. We are so very lucky to have them be part of our March Against Monsanto.
Protestors are protectors. Help us protect our food supply. Planning an event of this magnitude requires time and money to make it a Success. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, will help to cover out-of-pocket costs. The producers of the march are all unpaid volunteers. Please make a contribution to help cover costs including: after-party venue, promotions, and t-shirts! Any funds left over will go toward growing programs in schools and supporting our local agriculture.
Our goal is to encourage people to be the change they wish to see by supporting local farmers, buying organic and non-gmo project verification label products, avoiding the at-risk ingredients, voting with our wallet & fork, saving our seeds, helping our pollinators, growing our own food and sharing with our neighbors and never use Roundup.
This is a peaceful, family friendly march so bring the kids!! BRING COLORFUL, CREATIVE SIGNS, COSTUMES, CHANTS, & DRUMS! Carpool, Uber or Lyft, take public transportation, and be sure to bring a refillable water container! (PLEASE NO PLASTIC) Let’s march for a beautiful GMO-Free world!
