On May 24, 2014, over 1,000 people descended upon Ann Arbor, Michigan for this year’s March Against Monsanto. Ann Arbor’s a progressive and fairly healthy town, but still counts many unhealthy GMO-laden restaurants among its many healthier and organic cafes and health food stores.
The following are pictures from the 2014 March Against Monsanto in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which was organized by Kristen Jones, a local activist who was actually arrested at the same event last year (for the dubious charge of “using a megaphone,” seriously).
The charges were thankfully dropped, so Kristen made sure to have a backup plan this year: and that backup plan was me, actually. She designated me to take over in the event that an arrest was made at this year’s march, but luckily it didn’t come to that. I did have a chance to make a speech after a fantastic introduction by Kristen, however. Hopefully I’ll have a video of that speech soon. For now, enjoy pictures of the event (and don’t forget to subscribe to our email newsletter here for more).
