FREE ‘World According to Monsanto’ Screening in Tucson on Friday, Jan. 6

Monsanto, a large global corporation that produces or has produced various agricultural products (pesticides, hormones in raising animals, and genetically modified soybeans, corn and other crops), and chemicals such as Agent Orange, Roundup, and PCBs, has plans to move into the Tucson area (1.5 miles away from Marana High School) and is seeking a 66% tax break (also known as “Project Corn”) from the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

On Friday, January 6, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., concerned citizens of Pima County present a free screening of The World According to Monsanto at Green Fields School Auditorium, 6000 North Camino de la Tierra (just south of Orange Grove Road in northwest Tucson).

The showing of a documentary about the record and business practices of Monsanto was planned to take place before open public meetings about Monsanto’s plans in Pima County begin on Monday, January 9. Don’t miss this opportunity to find out what kind of neighbor Monsanto is.

Following the movie, Going Against GMOs author Melissa Diane Smith will provide information about the open public meetings taking place in January, the local grassroots movement that’s building against Monsanto’s plans, and how you can take action locally.
