**This is the official page for the March Against Monsanto in Frederick, MD.
Monsanto is a chemical company that was responsible for the production of DDT, Agent Orange, and PCBs, all of which are deadly toxins that have been banned because of their adverse effects on human health. Monsanto is now one of the top producers of GMO (genetically modified organism) fruits and vegetables. GMOs were put in grocery stores and on Americans' dinner tables without adequate independent studies on long-term effects on human health.
Come out and support the cause as we join other marches throughout Maryland, the United States, and over 60 other countries around the world.
Bring your kids, bring your grandma--everyone is welcome. Enough is enough; it's time to flood the streets and start a revolution!
We'll be giving out a prize to the most creative protest sign, so be sure to bring your poster-board masterpieces of crazy catchphrases and colorful call-to-arms.
