March Against Monsanto + GMO Labeling

Posted by tinako on May 16, 2013

Did you know that there is a worldwide March Against Monsanto happening Saturday, May 25th, mostly at 2 pm?  There are 400 people signed up so far to march in my medium city.  I see almost 4,000 signed up for Manhattan.  You can check for your city here at Occupy Monsanto, but if you don’t find it, try Googling, just in case.

In case you don’t know, Monsanto is the ruthless mega-corporation behind GMOs and Roundup.  Their mantra seems to be “Just Shut Up and Eat.”  I am not going to try to explain why people dislike Monsanto.  You can read about it at Occupy Monsanto, or at Millions Against Monsanto.  This company seems to come up with one anti-consumer product or law after another, and they keep winning!  If you don’t know why GMOs and Roundup (glyphosate) are a problem, visit the above links, and do not miss this new study.

Here in New York state, we have a very important vote coming up in the next month, a GMO Labeling bill.  We’re working very hard to pass it.  If you live in NY, please visit GMOFreeNY.net.

If you live elsewhere, Google to find out what’s happening.  A lot of states are working on this.  Vermont just passed something in one of their houses.

Now is the time to act.  Monsanto has threatened to sue any state which passes GMO labeling regulations.  Tell everyone, and then march next weekend to send a message to the world that you won’t be bullied by Monsanto, and get involved with legislation, labeling and otherwise, to tell your representatives you want them to stand up to this company.

  1. Excellent! I’d rather be pro-organic than anti-Monsanto, but this is still is worthwhile campaign.
