March Against Monsanto

Organization: 

From March Against Monsanto.com and Occupy-Monsanto.com:

The group March Against Monsanto, a coalition of over 30 organizations opposed to Genetically Modified Foods (also called GMOs), has organized a global #MarchAgainstMonsanto event with protests and events scheduled in 45 countries and in all 50 US states.  A list of events can be found here.

 

The reason for the event, according to Occupy-Monsanto protest organizers, is that:

"Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and unlabeled GMOs. Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products."

 

Occupy Monsanto also has posted a list of  March Against Monsanto events taking place on Saturday, May 25, 2013.
