Gainesville will be joining at least a dozen cities in Florida that will be marching as part of a global movement for justice and health. On Saturday, May 25, activists around the world will unite to March Against Monsanto. Joining Joanna of Gaia Grove to organize the march are Occupy Gainesville, the Zen Hostel, local organic farmers, student groups and others. Everyone is invited.
