MAM Greenville

Beatrice had a stomach bug on Saturday. She and James stayed home while Ambrose and I went to the March Against Monsanto in Downtown Greenville. We pretty much stayed with our friends, one of whom carried the best sign ever.

There was an amazing turn out. Probably over 300 people. That may not seem like much if you are from a bigger or more liberal place. But here in SC, it's huge and unexpected. The local organizers had planned a route for the expected under 100 people and an alternate route in case there with over 100. This is really a non-partisan issue. There were all kinds of viewpoints present united by a common issue. It was beautiful.  

Here is Amby at his first march:
