Mark Bauer, a supporter of the MN United for All Families campaign, decided to play a little political jiu jitsu at the “Dump General Mills” protest held by the Minnesota for Marriage campaign. He bought some General Mills products to the protest for donation to a local food shelf.

Minnesota for Marriage, angered by General Mills opposition to the proposed constitutional amendment to limit marriage to one man and one woman, held a four day protest. The accepted General Mills products that they will then donate to a local food shelf.

That’s where Mark Bauer found some common ground.

“Even though I disagree with what they’re doing and their reasons behind it, I definitely agree with feeding the needy,” says Bauer.

Bauer set up a Facebook page to encourage other opponents of the protest to buy General Mills products and donate them during this four day event.
