PROTEST 2 at Wall Street to Main Street canceled

Project update: canceled

Stand Up and Take Action!

Join me on May 12th to rouse the spirit of Protest, 2nd in the series of a living breathing petition. Protest is a traveling experimental performance/video work, a forward thinking process piece that records and layers footage from each protest as it collects supporters from location to location. Protest is designed to raise awareness on subjects like Farmers vs. Monsanto and allows people to come together and express the dissatisfaction with our current political, social and economic systems. The concept is to virtually bring people together from locations across the country to collect and contain their stance as a unified whole. Protest No.1 was held and recorded live from my studio in Newark, New Jersey for Low Lives: Occupy! a global online streaming performance art festival by founder/curator Jorge Rojas. If you or a venue you know would like to bring Protest to your space in its ongoing incarnation contact Tara at tararaye@gmail.com

To participate in:
Protest: Stand in Solidarity Farmers Vs. Monsanto No. 2
Show up! at 420 Main Street Catskill, NY on May 26th at 3:00 sharp to 4:00.

The Facts: 
President Obama has yet to fulfill his 2008 campaign promise to label GMO's. Why? because corporate agriculture is deep in the pockets of the political system. 
Napal has run Monsanto out of their country. Why do Americans Support and permit Monsanto here. Why aren't Americans protesting?
The USA is one of the last countries in the world to not label GM foods.
Haiti after the 2010 earthquake refused 400 tons of Monsanto seed.
Monsanto is responsible for bankrupting farmers in court by bullying and enforcing their patented seeds. 
Terminator seeds cease to germinate after one season forcing farmers to rebuy seeds.
Because of Monsanto there has been a surge in farmer suicides around the world.
Pesticides and Herbicides are linked to diseases like cancer and birth defects and are damaging to our water supply and marine life.

Still not convinced you should protest?
