The intention of this march is to raise public awareness and bring increasing political pressure to bear regarding Monsanto’s corporate farming and business practices and to fight for labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered and/or modified materials.
It has been estimated that 38 countries spanning 6 continents and 428 cities will be participating in the Global March Against Monsanto for a peaceful, non-violent, informational protest.
Monsanto’s and other companies (e.g., Dow, Syngenta) genetically engineered food pose scientifically established health risks. These include, but are not limited to: organ damage, sterility and infant mortality, birth defects, immune reactions, and increased cancer risks.
“Monsanto is bankrupting famers, causing soil infertility, mono-cropping, loss of biodiversity, and bee hive collapse. Furthermore, their practices pose a very real threat to organic farming and loss of native plants.
We The People DEMAND to know what is in our food. Come join the 3%ERS and stand with us against Monsanto and this oppressive government that refuses to label our food.
PLEASE TAG A FRIEND AND PASS THIS ALONG!!!
