Fact Checking March Against Monsanto Protesters #3

February 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

I have previously made videos critical of Sue Mallender and Tracey Lloyd, who gave speeches at the March Against Monsanto protest in Nottingham last year.

The main event began with a speech from one of the organizers who, for some reason, [...]
