GMO FREE USA WILL TOUR WITH NEIL YOUNG IN JULY
“Hands in the soil will outgrow Monsanto.” – Neil Young
GMO Free USA is thrilled to announce that we will be joining Neil Young + Promise of the Real during the upcoming tour to promote their new studio album, The Monsanto Years. We will be taking GMO education on the road from July 8 in Morrison, Colorado to July 22 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
Neil Young has generously donated concert tickets to help us raise funds to cover the cost of tour expenses and printed educational materials. You can enjoy a great show and support our nonprofit by purchasing tickets, which will be auctioned to the public at www.biddingowl.com/gmofreeusa (auction ended)
“The Monsanto Years are here and we are living them. Monsanto is the poster-child for what is wrong with corporate controlled government in our world. Our upcoming record, The Monsanto Years, encompasses several associated subjects that millions of people worldwide are concerned about and active in. Earth is not ours. We are of the Earth. That’s how I feel. When we plunder our own home we hurt our children and their children after them. I feel responsible.” – Neil Young.
