Busy Parking Lot Stymies Protest at Brentwood Square

A group planned a protest in front of Whole Foods on Saturday, but first had to find parking.

Some protesters showed up at on Saturday, planning to make a statment, but first they had to find parking which wasn't easy.

"We checked it out a couple weeks ago and it looked like it would be OK," Sandy Griffin, one of the protesters said.

On Saturday, it was packed.

The group of about half a dozen arrived in cars and small pickup trucks with handmade signs, stating that Whole Foods sells GMO food. GMO stands for genetically modified organism.

Some found parking, but others circled the lot, and soon a patrol car caught up to them.

The officer told them signs had to be off the cars, and they could carry them on the sidewalk if they wanted.

After a brief conversation the protesters removed the signs.

Hey Randall, you are a real pleasure to debate. Ever heard of anger management??? Come on, put on your big boy pants and try to make a point without name calling. This isn't 3rd grade.

So, what GMO products does Whole Foods sell?

I'll look into the GMO issue, and the signs in the parking lot issue. Thanks for the comments.
