Millions Against Monsanto: World Food Day

Sep 28, 2011 10:17AM

World Food Day, October 16, will feature rallies against genetically engineered foods. Last year’s La Via Campesina movement (ViaCampesina.org) called for actions around the world to denounce the role of agribusinesses such as Monsanto in the destruction and corporatization of biodiversity and life. This year, organizers are urging people to join the international cause by participating in local rallies.

World Food Day actions are planned in 36 U.S. cities, with close to 600,000 registered supporters. A 300-mile march from New York to Washington, D.C., punctuated by special events, also is scheduled from October 1 to 16 to support local and global efforts to keep genetically modified organisms (GMO) out of the food supply and demand GMO labeling on all food and drink products.
