I’m recovering from surgery or I would be at my local march for sure.  You never know what one person can accomplish until you try.  I hope you go!

I would!  And I have.  It sounds like it will be peaceful and I took my sister when she was that age.

If nothing else you are spreading awareness.

I’m in Canada, but if I was living in the States I would definitely march against Monsanto as I don’t think there are any organized marches here. The head office of Monsanto Canada is in my town too which i think is disgusting. Our University is the leading Agriculture school in the country so makes sense that they setup shop here. The company turns my stomach and I would share with the world how I do not support them and would like to see change!!!

My other half went today. Monsanto is CRAZY!! I don’t really think marches are all that effective, but they make me feel better. I would have gone if I didn’t have to work.

I’m actually at a march! Ppl asked what we were doing and I told them. They had never heard of monsanto and are irate about the current food problems. Its great to spread awareness. I am also very proud of my son who has been educating kids in school about it.

If you want the world to starve then go protest and make sure you have all your information first. I am all for GMOs and farmers who try to feed the world on limited land.

Monsanto is poison. Gmo foods are riddled with chemicals. I like my food without chemicals. Feeding the world gmo’s is what is killing the food sources. Research it! Btw I do have all of my information correct.

But you know what? I live in farm country. I see first hand how the farmers are being screwed over. I have also seen amish get taken away for having heirloom seeds. With my own two eyes. Monsanto is evil and it is not alright to be eating chemicals in food.

@MrsN14: Whoa, that’s not what this is about at all. In the beginning, GMOs were *supposed* to be about feeding the world, but that’s not what Monsanto is trying to do. At all.

When you have a better plan to feed the growing population with reduced land then I’d be all for it but I think people are just ignorant and expect everything to be perfect and that’s never going to happen. We farm, family members work at Monsanto and people are always looking for things to complain about

Then we will have to agree to diagree. This thread is about awareness, not fighting. There is enough of that in the world already.

@Glenda_the_good_witch:  What is it that you think foods are composed of?  Unchemicals?

 

I think that some GMOs are actually a good thing, and I don’t think most people fully understand everything that falls under the GMO label.  I agree that some of the things Monsanto does are pretty underhanded.

If anyone would like like to know more about the Monsanto controversy, I’d encourage you all to watch the documentary “Food, Inc.” They have great information about Monsanto throughout and interviews with people who are feeling Monsanto’s wrath. 

EDIT: Here’s a 10 minute clip from Food, Inc. that explains a lot of the Monsanto problems. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P1CJ7IEt0c It’s not the full amount of information available in the movie, but it’s a little. I really encourage you all to check it out from the library. (The sound quality is great, but the picture is kind of weird. You can still see everything though)
