This Nov. 5th we are calling for a worldwide march on your city hall, capitol, courthouse or anywhere else corruption exists! But we’re not limiting our efforts to just one day, and neither should you! If you are ready, willing and able to march before and/or after November 5th, what are you waiting for? And don’t just march offline, get online and share like you care! We are gathering infographics, memes and other educational content exposing corruption for everyone to share freely everyday at our Official March Against Corruption page: www.facebook.com/MarchAgainstCorruption Remember, Facebook is suppressing political/activist speech and those who cannot afford to pay to share. Our only way of overcoming this is with your help TAGGING, LIKING, COMMENTING and SHARING!

At this point in history, we have the unique opportunity to reclaim our food supply from biotech juggernauts like Monsanto. We have the ability to remove the mutated GMO garbage from our dinner tables, and demand that activism turn into anti-Monsanto legislation. This is the goal of the Monsanto Video Revolution. The March Against Monsanto that occurred in May of this year was a major success, but the fight does not end with an activist march. In an effort to generate even more awareness across the globe, the largest players in the natural health field are coming together to push this Monsanto Video Revolt into hyper space. Together, they are joining forces and asking YOU to help even further on July 24th, 2013, in the Monsanto Video Revolt. Learn more at www.monsantovideorevolt.com

Ambre Energy is proposing a train-to-barge coal export facility that would be located in Boardman, OR.
