SPECIAL WALKS IN MAY

By May 7, 2013December 9th, 2014Legacy Sport & Wellness Blog

There are two special walks or marches during the month of May.

Saturday, May 25th at 1:00 PM, concerned citizens in Dallas are gathering at City Hall for the National March Against Monsanto. Marchers will gather at 1500 Marilla Street in downtown Dallas in a show of solidarity with communities all over the nation.

Why do we march?
• Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health
conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
• In the U.S., the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives.
We feel this is a questionable conflict of interest.
• The U.S. Congress and president passed a bill that bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s
genetically-modified seeds.
• Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto enjoys corporate subsidies and political
favoritism.
• Monsanto’s GMO seeds are harmful to the environment. Scientists have indicated they have caused
colony collapse amount the world’s bee population.

On Memorial Day weekend, May 26-27th, Dallas comes together at Reverchon Park and The Katy Trail for the Carry the Load March in remembrance of veterans and first-responders who have given their lives in the defense of others.
