March Against Monsanto

The last time I checked the website for this global event which is being held to protest the growing use of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and other tools of agribusiness such as pesticides and herbicides that critics say are compromising the safety of our food supply and health of our environment marches were being held in over 400 cities on six continents.

In Regina, the march will happen at the Saskatchewan Legislature at 2 p.m. today. Below is a CNN report from 2013 that provides some background on Monsanto — a corporate giant with operations in 60 some countries in the world — and outlines the primary concern of protesters that greater transparency is needed through measures like labeling of GMOs to allow people to make informed consumer choices at the grocery store.
