Fellow activists have been jailed in Philadelphia and are seeking financial assistance for bail. Contributions are greatly appreciated and needed! Please click here for instructions on wiring money.

Thanks to all who united for "BioDemocracy" in Philly, to oppose the June 19-22, 2005 annual international closed-door corporate convention of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), and to demonstrate resistance to their agenda of genetically engineered trees and agriculture, healthcare for profit and bioweapons proliferation! With your help, we were able to raise our voices and educate thousands about the hazards of corporate biotech and our different vision of sustainable alternatives -- local food sovereignty, community power, justice for small farmers, fair trade, healthcare for all, biodiversity and honest science. Please visit the Philadelphia Independent Media Center for full coverage of BioDemocracy events and actions, including photos of actions, interviews, audio recordings of teach-in sessions, and updates about the legal situation of arrested protesters.

In 2006, BIO will hold their convention in Chicago, from April 9th to 12th. Activists in Chicago are already beginning to organize grassroots resistance.
