Food Fight: Monsanto

I was late. Not as late  as I had figured I was, but some minor engagements online had kept me from being the kind of early I wanted to be. I arrived in Veterans' Park across from the Library in downtown Red Deer on May 24/14 expecting a throng of angry citizens ready to hurl a Molotov cocktail at the establishment. Instead, what I found was a peaceful demonstration already in process. Thank God. Signs with slogans such as 'OMG GMO WTF are you eating?'; 'HECK NO GMO' and many other creative and colourful motifs filled the square. By square, of course, I mean the recently christened Veteran's Park, a section of Ross that has since been blocked off, filled with wrought iron tables and benches and is centered on Red Deer's cenotaph.
