Debrief from the Sidewalk Session at the BIO International Conference

On Monday morning, June 18, 2012, over 75 food democracy activists
from Occupy Monsanto, the Massachusetts Chapter of the Northeast
Organic Farming Association
, Occupy Boston, Ciclovida, and the LEAH Collective greeted thousands of
biotech industry workers as they entered the Boston Convention &
Exhibition Center. The police were fairly friendly and provided
activists with prime sidewalk space in front of the convention
center. The Sidewalk Session wound down around lunchtime, but Boston
area activists continued to protest the biotech industry for the remainder of
the week.
