There is only one justice movement. The #mikebrownverdict was a travesty of justice. If you want to help, this is how to connect our issue of food justice with social justice.
Most of the time we act as if the movement for food justice is separate for the movement for social justice. This is something that we must unlearn.
It is not. Our destinies are tied together. Justice is indivisible. If we fight for freedom for one, we achieve freedom for all.
The injustice in Ferguson is tied to the injustice everywhere. The lack of accountability that gives rise to political injustice is the same injustice of hunger, economic oppression and environmental degradation.
We must raise our voices and connect all the issues of justice. We know that the violence of food injustice has connections to Missouri. We must be smart. We can use our economic power to shift an unjust system.
This Friday, join the #notonedime campaign and do not shop.
Missouri is home to Monsanto, the leading company in the proliferation of genetically modified crops. GMO's production is a form of environmental violence that all of our communities live with day in and out. We are forced to eat food that is killing the planet.
Demand that GMO's are labeled and DO NOT purchase foods that contain GMO's. This will be harder for those of us that are not in the food justice movement.
We must share with our comrades the importances of eliminating these products from our plates.
