March Against Monsanto has announced that on May 25, tens of thousands of activists around the world will "March Against Monsanto." Currently, marches are being planned on six continents, in 36 countries, totaling events in over 250 cities, and in the US, events are slated to occur simultaneously at 11 a.m. Pacific in 47 states.
Tami Monroe Canal, lead organizer and creator of the now-viral Facebook page, says she was inspired to start the movement to protect her two daughters. "I feel Monsanto threatens their generation's health, fertility and longevity. I couldn't sit by idly, waiting for someone else to do something."

Many TV channels did a great job of bringing environmental films to their viewers including the broadcast premier of Chasing Ice on National Geographic Channel, the US broadcast premiere of Carbon Nation on Current TV, and a whole line up on the Documentary Channel including some of our AwareGuide favorites such as Bag It!, Save The Farm, and Cafeteria Man.
Its Earth Month and there is a fantastic amount of activity happening around films. Common Ground Magazine featured an article on the Rise of Environmental Films and Festivals in its current issue.

If you go to foreign films, if you go to documentaries, if you go to independent films, if you go to good films, you will become a better person because you will understand human nature better. Movies record human nature in a better way than any other art form, that's for sure.
With spring around the corner, we are turning over to a new season of important film festivals to attend.

It is a crucial time to start directing our focus to up-coming premiers of influential documentaries geared to advance our present awareness. It is incredible to see the amount of energy that gets put into these festivals, and the impact they have in spreading positive change.
