MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO AT CITY HALL Brandon and Susan Pollard join a City Hall protest against the widespread use of herbicides and pesticides. The marchers oppose Monsanto, bioengineers of agricultural chemicals. (Below) A thousand strong, protestors wind from City Hall toward the Farmers Market and back. Monsanto opponents blame the corporation, among others, for the drastic reduction of bee populations. The company has publicly denied that its products are the problem and has announced its intentions to help find a solution. Later that day, as the crowd thins, Brandon Pollard shakes his head, laments the lack of media presence and says, with a sad smile, “Preaching to the choir.”
