December 4, 2011, farmers and activists from across the country joined the Occupy Wall Street Farmers March for “a celebration of community power to regain control over the most basic element to human well-being: food.”

Maine organic farmer, Jim Gerritsen spoke to a crowd of more than 500 farmers, food workers and sustainable food and agriculture activists about his role in the Public Patent Foundation lawsuit against biotech seed and chemical giant Monsanto.

Gerritsen made his first trip to New York City to share his concern about the loss of organic seeds to genetic contamination and the threat this poses to farmers and our food supply.
