March Against Monsanto: May 25 2013 will go down in history as the first time people from across the planet rose up against the global biotech giant Monsanto to try and stop them taking over the World’s food system.
Sustainable Pulse will be uploading videos from around the World over the next 2 days to give an online voice to the March Against Monsanto events. If you do not find your video here please send a link to us – firstname.lastname@example.org . Our friends at GMO Action have also put up a full world map of the events.
The March Against Monsanto will involve tens of thousands of activists around the world. Currently, marches are being planned on six continents, in about 40 countries, totaling events in over 300 cities, and in the US, events are slated to occur simultaneously at 11 a.m. Pacific in 47 states.
Tami Monroe Canal, lead organizer and creator of the now-viral Facebook page, says she was inspired to start the movement to protect her two daughters. “I feel Monsanto threatens their generation’s health, fertility and longevity. I couldn’t sit by idly, waiting for someone else to do something.” [The full March Against Monsanto mission statement can be read here.]
