The news is a victory for Pima County taxpayers whose tax dollars won’t be used to support what has often been dubbed the most evil corporation in the world. But Monsanto said it still plans to build its greenhouse in Avra Valley without tax help. That means grassroots opposition to Monsanto continues and will simply enter a new phase.
If you’d like to know why so many people don’t trust Monsanto, don’t miss a wonderful opportunity this weekend to learn from nationally known non-GMO activist Zen Honeycutt, founder of Moms Across America, who has special knowledge about Monsanto. Honeycutt will be the featured speaker covering the latest news on Glyphosate (Roundup) testing, the Monsanto Tribunal at the Hague, and Monsanto shareholder meetings at a Stand Up Against Monsanto Lecture and Public Forum from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. this Sunday, February 19, 2017 at the Oro Valley Library, 1305 W. Naranja Drive.
I, farmer Anne Loftfield, and Rachel Linden of GMO Free Arizona will be additional speakers at the event and will cover the latest news and details about Phase 2 of our opposition to Monsanto in our community. See the Facebook page about this event, and be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to get your questions answered and to learn information you won’t hear elsewhere.
