(Sorry for the poor quality. Blogger did something to this- a YouTube fuller video TK!)

Nearly 400 braved the cold, blustery winds and drizzle to take a stand for safe, nontoxic food yesterday. We were just one of hundreds of marches in fifty countries, spanning six continents.  Millions took to the streets to protest the genetic modification of our food supply! We thank all who joined us in New Paltz in the Hudson Valley. Some even came from New Jersey to be with us!

Coverage is starting to come in. Here is a great article and more photos on MidHudson News -www.midhudsonnews.com/News/2013/May/26/GMO_protest-26May13.htm and on New Paltz Current- newpaltzcurrent.tumblr.com/post/51359003340/new-paltz-marches-against-monsanto

Video and more of a write up coming! Thanks to Beth Dulay who initiated the march and all who worked to make it such a resounding success!
