Join Monsanto Stock Plunge May 9 for National Day of Action at Fidelity Offices Nationwide

The stakes have been raised in the fight for food sovereignty with the recent announcement of a nationwide boycott against Monsanto stock. This Friday, May 9, Food Democracy Now!, in conjunction with Natural News, the Cornucopia Institute and many others, is holding a National Day of Action at Fidelity offices all across the country to hit Monsanto where it hurts -- in the pocketbook.

The campaign was first launched several weeks ago and was immediately met with resounding support, leading into a national day of mass protests and stock dumping to take place this Friday in major cities all across the country. Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles will all hold official rallies, and if your town or city has a Fidelity office, you, too, can organize a local protest there as well.

"This coming Friday, May 9th we're having flash mob protests in select cities across the U.S. at Fidelity Investment offices to let them know that we're serious about dumping Monsanto's toxic assets," reads a Food Democracy Now! announcement. "Fidelity alone owns more than $3.2 billion in Monsanto stock. In total, Fidelity manages more than $4.6 trillion in assets and more than 20 million customers in the U.S. -- Are you one of them?"

Your mutual funds or 401K could include Monsanto stock

Most of our readers would probably say in good conscience that they already don't invest in Monsanto and that this boycott doesn't apply to them. But if you have an investment portfolio that includes mutual funds or if you have a pension fund or a 401K, you could be financially supporting Monsanto without even realizing it.
