For the third year in a row, over 400 cities worldwide, from Seattle to Johannesburg, are organizing local events for the March Against Monsanto, and many expect to receive thousands in attendance. Our Boston event is in solidarity with this worldwide movement, and it is the second year we also host the Rally For World Food Justice on the same day. There were 1000 people in attendance at the 2014 March & Rally, and we hope to reach at least this same number in 2015.

The Boston organizing team is a small ad hoc group of activists from various groups and individuals coming together. We are seeking funding from individual community members through a crowdsourcing Indiegogo campaignand sponsorships from local businesses and organizations that align with our working definition of Food Justice (attached).

Locally in Boston, our goal is to incorporate a broad Food Justice mission into this event, highlighting its connection to economic, climate and racial justice and committing to prioritizing and putting front and center the voices and stories of our local communities, specifically those systemically affected by limited or no access, while maintaining an international perspective and solidarity. The Rally will feature teach-ins from community leaders, public speakers from across these movements, as well as local community musicians, and artists.

As in previous years, we plan for this to be a permitted family-friendly event.

Baltimore Solidarity Rally

Roxbury, Wednesday, April 29, 2015, 6:00 PM
1 Schroeder Plaza, Boston, MA 02120

This message is forwarded from Mass Action Against Police Violence.

Stand in solidarity with the protesters and people of Baltimore!

The government, the media, and other naysayers would put the onus of the destruction of property and violence on the backs of the protesters when in fact what has caused this disturbance is the years and decades of brutality and neglect against the people of this region. Until the government does something to address the wanton violence and impunity by the hands of the police against the people of this region what is happening Baltimore today is inevitable.

What is happening in Baltimore could happen anywhere. Justice denied is an act of war against the population and now the people have had enough and they are standing up and fighting back. Every lover of democracy and freedom must join this call. Join us in solidarity with Baltimore in front of the Boston Police headquarters for a rally and speak out as we demand:

  • Indict the police that killed Freddie Gray now!
  • Release the jailed protesters now!
  • Drop the charges against the protesters now!
  • End the state of emergency and curfew now!
