Let’s unite and stand together for this global event! Come and support food safety and transparency. Bring your friends, your family and your pets. Wear red, or maybe dress up as a bumble bee or… a beet!

We MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO because we…

Distrust the unsound, corporately-biased science on GMOs –
Oppose the harmful products used in conjunction with GMOs (RoundUp in particular, a herbicide containing glyphosate which was recently classified a probable carcinogen by the IARC, the World Health Organization’s cancer research branch)
•  Reject patents on life; no living organism should be owned by a corporation
• Want to build solidarity against predatory business & agricultural practices
• Wish to encourage seed sovereignty, and organic and sustainable food practices.
• Support local farms, bees and biodiversity.
• Advocate for labeling initiatives; we have a right to know what’s in our food!
