March against Monsanto rally

There was a great turnout at the rally yesterday and some very inspirational speakers, even the weather turned out to be pleasant.  The girls and I have just had a little bit of fun in the supermarket, putting stickers on foods that contain GMO's, but are unlabelled as such, because it's not currently a requirement.  It was a good lesson for Evie to learn about GMO's in a simplified way, and I'm thankful that we rarely buy these foods.  No more Betty Crocker icing for us!  Evie put most of her stickers on Coke and Pepsi products, and Carnation condensed/evaporated milk products.
There's a great article here about how Agroecological farming can double food production in 10 years.  We don't need GMO's to feed the world, we have enough food already.  We just need to fix the distribution, and stop the wastage.
