Monarch butterfly populations are at the lowest level on record. This sharp decline has been linked to the rise of GMO crops and Monsanto’s Roundup™ herbicide, which has virtually wiped out the only food their young eat — milkweed. Tell the USDA and EPA to save the monarchs: stop approving the pesticide-resistant GMO crops and their toxic pesticides. www.foe.org/monarchs
In a bit of street theater in front of the steak house, activists dressed as chefs with the names of corporations like Monsanto, Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, Goldman-Sachs, and others on their white hats. The “corporate chefs” used large “TPP cleavers” to cut up a cake representing Earth and divided it among themselves.
