From Michael Hurley:

Those who know of the evils and outrages of Monsanto, biotech agriculture, GMOs… what we’re rallying for is to save our food and our bodies from this sickening plague. I’m collecting songs from songwriters to put together for an instructive record album. Then we’ll have a nice concert and a big fish fry, and cook up the last of the non-mutated salmon and good potatoes and beans.
