Occupy Our Food Supply — start the protest in your backyard

February 27th, 2012

On this day of food activism – Occupy the Food System – I’d like to say, Bravo! to the creative minds behind this event. It makes so much sense for food advocates, environment activists and family farmers to work together.

Candlelight vigils have been held for a lot of causes. The cause for a series of vigils this weekend trumps almost anything in scope. Millions of climate activists are expected to light candles to advocate for the safety and preservation of the planet.

Organizers report that these events, some large and some small, many at iconic locations, and one in Copenhagen featuring Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu, are beginning now. Check out the pictures and details at TckTckTck.org, the alliance through which many groups are organizing events. Find a local vigil to join at 350.org.
