Percy Schmeiser: David versus Monsanto
Thanks to Joseph Heckman for forwarding this event along. You can RSVP at Food Day.
A Film about One Farmer’s Fight to Protect the Rights of All Farmers
The Whole Earth Center and the Princeton Public Library will host a screening of David versus Monsanto—the story of a Canadian farmer’s battle with Monsanto over his right to save seed and to protect his land against genetic trespass. This film follows Percy Schmeiser’s story from his farm fields in rural Canada all the way to the Canadian Supreme Court. The bittersweet story shows what happens when one individual dares to confront a powerful multinational corporation.
OCTOBER 24 IS FOOD DAY In celebration, there will be a tasting of Cherry Grove Farm cheese and Witherspoon Bread Company bread before the film (6:45pm to 7:10pm); free organic popcorn during the screening (7:15pm to 8:15pm).
