Good times all around. Lots of peeps from occupy, lots of peeps from the environmental movements, lots of people never met before and lots of new friendships and partnerships fostered.

Thank you to all the anarchists, libertarians and progressives for making this happen. Unity to address issues.

Occupy Forever.

Awesome. A truly global event and cause. Monsanto actually brings us all together from all over the world as we struggle for our most basic of rights, our food supply.

Occupy Orlando had a post- not sure if old or not- of a banner that read

"I can't believe I have to do this"...

That sums it up perfectly. We literally have to protest to not have our apples turned into chemical concoctions.

Hell of a democracy we have here.

You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking right, we can't believe we have to do this. And, then, I'm thinking, how many cops did our tax dollars pay for to infiltrate the Monsanto March? It's like they fight against us at every turn. Can't even have a peaceful protest without them spending our money against our own beliefs. It's crazy!

Had my little nephew with me, turned 10 a couple days ago.

Had him all "Hey hey, ho ho, GMO has got to go!" haha. Lots of kids, good to see them getting involved.

And of course, who doesnt love all the drums!!

When I went to the last March on Monsanto there were a ton of kids, too. It was a joy to see. There is nothing more important than making sure our young ones are awake.

We had some "honk against monsanto" signs to get the drivers going. People would ask "Who's Monsanto".. " The chemical company that runs your food"...

Eyebrows go up, then lots of honks haha.

It is amazing how many people do not know what Monsanto is. Education is everything, so great job!

Self governance is not a handout is something I like to tell the right wingers :) Hits em upside the head since they all preach the responsibility thing yet do absolutely nothing. Couple of drivers didnt really know what to say to that one!!

Any government that controls any economic system should have the masses of people in mind, not just profits for maniacs like Monsanto.

The day we elect the people who would hold positions - ANY positions and ALL positions- in the FDA is the day we actually live in a democracy.

The day we truly elect anyone is the day we actually live in a democracy.

The entire nation has been asleep. Time to wake em up. Nothing like 400 people marching through the neighborhood screaming Whose Streets Our Streets!!

So true, and with what's going on in Washington, more and more people are waking up.
