May Fourth Friday Film

Genetically Modified Children Movie Poster

The Peace and Justice Center presents the documentary, “Genetically Modified Children,”(2016) to reveal the ills of dangerous pesticides on our food crops.  The film depicts the late 90’s, when the Argentinian government authorized the use of genetically modified crops based on studies done by chemical giant, Monsanto (now merged with Bayer).  Little to no independent research was done to verify the company’s own results and claims, and the Misiones Province of Argentina, where poverty-stricken farmers grow tobacco, became one of the first regions to begin handling Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup on their tobacco crops.

 
Today, every year, more than 300 million liters (80 million gallons) of glyphosate are used on Argentinian soil. As their use of Monsanto’s Roundup increased, so too did ill-health in their community, and most notably, birth defects in their children.  Come learn about the effects of glyphosate and its widespread use in the US.
 
See “Genetically Modified Children” on Friday May 24, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City.  Come for the film, and stay for the discussion following the film. $10.00 suggested donation and free tea and organic popcorn!  For more information write to  ncpeaceandjustice@gmail.com, or visit the Peace & Justice Center’s Facebook page.
