Get CA's Guild Leaders to The Hague
Bob McFarland is the President of the California Guild, a statewide, non-profit organization that has been doing legislative and activist work for many years. He has been personally invited by Vandana Shiva to present at The Anti-Monsanto Tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, and he and the Guild's legislative director, Diana Rudé, need some assistance to get there.
The cost for this excursion is about $5000 each for airfare, lodging, transportation, meals and other amenities.
The Tribunal is from the 14th to the 16th of October and we need to secure the funds at least two weeks prior to those dates.
The California Guild has been fighting for food, seed and community sovereignty for years, and the work of Vandana Shiva and the Monsanto Tribunal is paramount to the work the Guild has been doing all that time. Bob and Diana's presence in The Hague will be instrumental for communicating California's essential role in these matters. As leaders in the agricultural world, when California speaks, the world listens.
Our thanks for your support will be unparalleled, and the returns will be many; most importantly, holding the polluters of our environment and food system accountable while protecting our most important resources.
