Thanks again to all who braved the cold, wet day on Saturday to join forces to say
"No GMOs! Protect our food, our land, air and water!"

Thanks again to our great musicians; Joakim Lartey, percussion and Thomas Workman, didgeridoo; Tim Hunter, guitar; and Jeremy Mage who led us in a group chant as we got ready to march!. Thanks too to Joel Tyner (Dutchess County legislator) for his rap! Music added so much to an already inspiring day!
And thanks again to Beth Dulay who, when she found the nearest march was 2 hours away, decided to start one here!
We are also grateful that she chose to share her personal story about taking the first genetically modified product and the health problems that ensued. As Beth says, she cannot absolutely make the connection, but the fact that 60,000 were adversely affected by the drug (L-Tryptophan) she took and the fact that she has 5 of the symptoms of EMS that the drug did cause, speaks volumes.
We thank her for her gumption, hard work, courage and passion!
