MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO SAN DIEGO 5/23/2015
The March Against Monsanto picked up a huge head of steam as the Port of San Diego and San Diego City are suing Monsanto for polluting the bay with PCBs. This means that our march will be covered nationally, and will be in the spotlight! So this is the year to really do our best to get a great turnout.
DATE: Saturday, May 23, 2015
WHERE: Balboa Park “Bea Evenson” Fountain
TIME: Set up at 9:30.
Gather and Visit booths and tables 10am
Program with speakers at 11am.
March at noon.
MARCH: Our plan is to have two lengths, one just over the Laurel St. bridge, pause for photo op, then back, around the park, by World Beat Center, and then back to the start, about 1.5 miles. The other marches through downtown and is at least 3.5 miles.
PARKING: Parking is free and plentiful.
Please “Join” the Facebook event so we have an idea of number of people, and please INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!
It does not happen too often, but finally the City of San Diego and San Diego Port District finally do something right, by SUING MONSANTO for PCB pollution in the bay. Please, call, email, and post to their FB Pages and tell them you really like what they are doing!
Here is an idea for an email. Please compose your own. The idea is to compliment them on the lawsuit and to prompt them to take further action... something like this:
Subject: THANK YOU for SUING MONSANTO!
Really happy to see that the San Diego has stepped up to the plate! THANK YOU for suing Monsanto, keep their chemicals out of our bay!!
Now, what about the decline of the bees??
Please don't use that exact email, we want yours to be different, but you can send the same message to everyone, if you use a generic email. However, it is better if you can personalize each one.
1. Do this as soon as possible so they feel a tsunami of support!
2. Sending emails means they get logged into the official email records for the official. They have to save all of them, and they get sent around to subordinates and included in reports of issues being contacted about.
3. Post to their Facebook page: means that visitors to the page might see it!
4. Call them! You'll be surprised how happy they are to hear that they are doing something right!
