On May 25, on 6 continents, in 36 countries, and in 250 cities and counting, tens of thousands of activists will March Against Monsanto. In the United States, the majority of events will occur at 11 AM PT.

What’s the march all about? The March Against Monsanto website explains why people will be marching.

  • Protect our food supply.
  • Support local farmers.
  • Spread awareness about the harmful effects of genetically modified foods.
  • Promote organic solutions.
  • Expose the cronyism between big business and big government.
  • Bring accountability to those responsible for the corruption.
It looks like these marches will dig deeper into the issue of GMOs than simply demanding that foods created with GMOs be labeled because the public has a right to know.

If you’d like to participate in one of these marches, the March Against Monsanto event list links to the Facebook pages of individual marches worldwide where you’ll find specifics for each march.
