‘March Against Monsanto’ Draws As Many As 2 Million Globally

As many as 2 million people in 436 cities in 52 countries around the world may have demonstrated in March Against Monsanto protests conducted Saturday, according to the Associated Press, which cited event organizers.

The demonstrators targeted the St. Louis-based Monsanto Co. (NYSE:MON) because of its historical role in introducing genetically modified products into the food supply. GM products are controversial for a number of reasons. One centers on health risks; another centers on labeling.

Because labeling is not mandatory but voluntary in many jurisdictions, such as the U.S., consumers are not universally made aware which products are GM and which products are not GM. Hence, one sign singled out by AP in its coverage of the March Against Monsanto protest in Los Angeles Saturday read, “Label GMOs, It’s Our Right to Know.”

The March Against Monsanto was the brainchild of Tami Canal, who created a Facebook page Feb. 28 calling for a rally against the seed company’s practices. “If I had gotten 3,000 people to join me, I would have considered that a success,” AP quoted Canal as saying Saturday. Event organizers also employed Twitter in an attempt to both document and maximize the turnout.

“It was empowering and inspiring to see so many people, from different walks of life, put aside their differences and come together today,” Canal said. “We will continue until Monsanto complies with consumer demand. They are poisoning our children, poisoning our planet. If we don’t act, who’s going to?”

Of course, Monsanto countered that its seeds enhance agriculture by helping farmers produce more from their land while conserving resources such as energy and water, according to AP.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate this week killed a bill that would have allowed states to require labeling of GM products.

WHY THE MEDIA BLACKOUT?

World Wide March against Monsanto was widely censored by mainstream media

By S. D. Wells | Natural News

(NaturalNews) It’s nowhere to be found in the big newspapers or on the “network” TV news, but why? The highly successful, world wide “March against Monsanto” is nowhere to be found in mainstream media, and it wasn’t covered live either. Far bigger than any cancer march, or any MS drive, people came out in droves, to cities all across the globe, and their children made signs about how GMO food, yes, genetically modified (mutated) organisms are infecting the main food supply of America, and you know how kids are, they tell it like it is! Nope, the big TV reporters and the “Big City” event reporters didn’t come out to cover the great awareness march and the newspapers wanted no part in it. Again, why?

Thoses who are awake know exactly why, but when we discuss it, it sounds unbelievable, and people just don’t have the time to look into, “unbelievable,” or do they?
[…]

If you read the signs, and I mean that literally and figuratively, you will instantly understand why the mainstream media did not talk about this huge FOOD REVOLUTION event, and why all the kids came out with creative signs they made themselves and held them up for the world to see, like pointing out something is INHERENTLY WRONG with the food supply, at least the food supply of which the SEEDS are made of toxins that kill bugs, weeds, worms, rats, nutrients in food and oh yes, HUMANS.

Millions of people world wide came out to march Saturday, May 25, 2013, and declare that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The FDA and the CDC and Monsanto are all working together to try to fool the adult masses that Biotech is a good word, that Agricultural “Engineering” means making food better, and the children of this universe are screaming in a peaceful, protest way that Monsanto, the KING of seed deception and seed tampering has created a monster that causes diseases and disorders. The kids really went all out. I was there my friends. It was wonderful. The message was crystal clear. It’s all over the signs they hammered together with wood posts, cardboard, superhero cut-outs, in savvy yet simple advice to the people who don’t know, all those ADULTS who were walking around, wondering what all the fuss was, and why these kids and their parents were so adamant about this cause

Event took place in over 400 cities in 52 countries around the world

Where was the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox News, Disney, Hollywood, Angelina Jolie? Where was she if she really wants to be heard about her fight against cancer and REAL prevention? Organic food is a “hush hush” item in the big news, didn’t you know? Just look at the sponsors and you know who “doesn’t allow” their own nemesis to be heard. This time it went far deeper than some health “nuts” or some grass roots organic “movement” trying to tell everybody about the healthy life. This time it ran so deep that 20 years of frustration rang out in 52 countries, which included over 430 cities across the 7 continents. This time the kids pointed out the obvious louder than the mainstream media ever could, pointing right at it, and making enough noise that FACEBOOK had to ban their parents from posting the signs and sharing the message on their FB page. Why? Because FaceBook is multimedia mass media now, and so is Twitter, haven’t you been watching the “News?”

“Kids have a right to know!”

There is simply NO LOGIC in keeping GMO a secret and not labeling it on all foods. Get with the program before you get swallowed whole by the toxic food system called genetically modified organisms.
