As the author of We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie, when we were plotting our path across the United States on our Run For a GMO Free USA, there was only one required stop along the way: St. Louis. Or more specifically, Creve Coeur. Creve Coeur is Monsanto’s headquarters. As luck or providence might have it, we are scheduled to arrive in Creve Coeur on May 24th, the date for the 3rd global March Against Monsanto. Good timing because the march organizers have asked David and me to speak at the march. This will be David’s 2nd opportunity to speak at a March Against Monsanto and my third. We consider it a great honor and responsibility to speak out against Monsanto’s ongoing crimes against humanity.
As of today’s date, we are only 10 miles or so from jumping on the Katy Trail in Jefferson City and heading toward Creve Coeur. According to Google Maps, we’ve got to cover 124 miles between Monday and Saturday in order to arrive at the March on time. Just over 20 miles per day.
As previously posted, David’s dealing with some pain that has slowed us down a bit. From what we’ve been told, pain is part of the transcon experience. The Katy Trail is a perfect place for us to slow down the pace, enjoy Missouri’s beautiful scenery, and give David some time to get back on his game. It’s also the perfect place for you to come and walk with us if you’d like. No cars, no traffic, no noise. Lots of opportunity to talk with David and me as we walk toward Creve Coeur. We’re going to do our best to post our location each day on the trail so people can join us on the trail.
Wouldn’t it be fun if a small group of us could actually walk to the March Against Monsanto on May 24th?
Whether you’re Monsanto’s biggest friend or foe, come and walk with us. If you want up-to-the-minute information on where we’re at on the trail, just call my cell phone: 801-882-3198.
See you on the trail!
