They walked 313 miles from Brooklyn to the White House to protest the fact that American’s don’t have the right to know that GMOs are in most of their food. And only a small group of us were there to meet them. I asked a policeman if he would arrest me and he refused, damn it.
Around the corner, thousands of people showed up for the Martin Luther King Dedication. Our march even had to wait for the President to return home. Down the street, another, larger group was protesting against the Occupy Wall Street movement–which, honestly, I am still not quite sure what it stands for. (Except that after I got home, I drove by some teenagers in Emmaus, PA, with signs that said “Stand Up Against Corporate America.”)
Meanwhile, GMOs, which represent the absolute WORST of corporate America and effect EVERYONE, black, white, teens, men, women, and especially babies, just aren’t getting the attention they deserve. Why? Is it too complicated? Or are Americans just blinded by their focus on cheap food–and not understanding that the food is cheap because they pay for it with their taxes (hello, Tea Party!).
