EXPLANATION OF THE LIST ( A “suggestion” for you) ALLY GROUPS:
Suggestion, based on people making the link from CHEMICAL companies to the biotech (GMO) companies. They are, of course, one and the same corporations.
“Monsanto” is the metaphor that encompasses chemical poisoning of the environment, the food supply and big-time corruption of Government.
It is difficult to obtain change, because of the influence they (the chem/biotech corporations) purchase with their $$$$$$.
An act of empowerment, after people see Unacceptable Levels: join the March Against Monsanto (MAM). It struck a chord and has taken off.
The next (and third) big global day of action is May 24th, 2014. Each March brings out more people. If there isn’t a March in your community, they are easy to organize via facebook. Or however people want to do it. Put something up now, so that like-minded people in a community can find each other.
Monsanto is one of the biggest chemical companies.
There has been great mobilization (the March Against Monsanto) because of the GMO food – – Mother’s who are frustrated by the GMO contamination of the food supply. They are learning about the simultaneous increased chemical load on the environment that comes with GMO food. And so on.
This page from my blog emphasizes the MAM’s in Canada (the organizers, Tami Canal from Utah, may have been hit with a tsunami of interest – – people here were having trouble finding Canadian groups, so this is a tool to assist Tami’s work. But the main contact points for the March outside Canada are provided, too).
As mentioned, I’ll post the link to your film trailer to the F/B groups on this “List..”.

I learned of Unacceptable Levels from this notice, Dec 2 screening:

Don’t miss this hugely important screening of UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS on Dec 2nd at 8:00pm at the Broadway Theatre to be followed by panel discussion.
Over 82,000 chemicals are now being used in a variety of industrial processes and are making their ways into our bodies through the food we eat, air we breathes and the products that we use. Unacceptable levels takes us on a journey to discover where these chemicals are coming from and how they are entering our bodies and how they are affecting our health. Check out the trailer here: http://www.unacceptablelevels.com/
