March Against Monsanto, Whangarei, Northland, May 25, 2013

A march was held in Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand as one of numerous marches around the world to say No To Monsanto.  It was raining quite heavily throughout the day of the protest, yet this did not deter about 70-80 people from taking to the streets and waving their banners.

Protesters met in Cameron St Mall at about 2pm and proceeded to the Northland Regional Council Building where they stood and chanted: “What do we want?”  “GE Free” When do we want it?” “Now!” repeatedly.  This film shows photos taken during the march on Water St, Bank St and Dent St, Whangarei.  Well done to all those involved.

    Clare thanks so much for being one of the first to get the MonSatan information up and for doing more than your bit to raise the awarness. You put your money where your mouth is every time Clare. One day the people of your area will thank you. How good it is to see the kiwis coming together to face off the corporate that is bullying the planet into being saved from geoengineered drought with their aluminum resistant seed. This is just one tiny part of their agenda.

    How long will it be before NZ farmers that buckled to Monsatans GMO seed wake up? How long before their GMO seed is contaminating neighbouring farms – all the while Monsatan sues them in court for having their wind spread poison jumping the fence? YES this is what they are doing all across the planet.

    Here is the first main speech by local Greens Party representative STEFFAN BROWNING in Christchurch, New Zealand on 25 May 2013. At 3 pm this sunny Autumn afternoon, a public rally started walking from the Riccarton Road roundabout near Dean’s Ave and walked to the wee park at Shands Crescent, Riccarton. I estimate between 350 and 450 people at the park by 3.45pm when the speeches started. He speaks of the GMO cloning of animals in NZ also

    The main stream covered this in Utah – very surprising.
    Greg from Utah shared this today. He also said some fantastic networking was being done at this event.

    http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/350817 Well done Australia and NZ – Clare your event gets mentioned in here

    • Wow! Thank-you very much for sharing that. Jim Reece did a good job during the protest by the way. No one was chanting and Jim got them going, shouting: What do we want?….

    Looks like a great wee gathering & march, Congratulations, hope it was a good time for everyone.

    Pity they couldn’t ban the Green party Hawks with their banner for a bit more credibility.

    My view is that why it’s un-accurate to tarnish everyone with the same brush, activism’s message is better served in remaining un-political if it is to be challenging political power and not craving it instead.

    Clare, I dug up HUNDREDS of photos from the global event. I must say I’m PUMPED to see the action. MILLIONS attended.

    All the while the internet is censoring – check this out

    • Thanks for the link to the film Rose. Censorship of evil seems to be the norm -the “elite” want us to remain wrapped up in a cocoon of illusions, like government cares, vaccines are good, fluoride is good for teeth and harmless to health, Monsanto cares and all its products are safe and helpful to humanity. You can’t put perfume on a pig…
