Local safe food activists Barbara Chicherio, Rev. Elston McCowan & digger will review the story of Monsanto and ask:

How are PCBs, dioxin, agent orange and Round-Up related?

For more than 20 years, the existence of GMOs have raised serious questions, such as:

What are GMOs and how did Monsanto get to be the world’s largest producer? Do GMOs in food pose a danger to human health?

Why would corporations oppose labeling foods that contain GMOs? How does monoculture affect our food supply — what is the GMO connection?

Is it ethical to criminalize farmers for saving seed? Is it ethical to patent life forms? What are superbugs and superweeds?

But the really big question is:

What is the alternative to having our food dominated by corporate agriculture?
