Melbourne "March Against Monsanto" Photos

MELBOURNE, Florida -- Brevard County residents joined tens of thousands of activists around the world on May 25 at 2 p.m. to "March Against Monsanto."


The global March Against Monsanto took place in over 250 cities in over 35 countries to highlight what activists claim is "the plight of Monsanto’s domination of our country’s food supply and their infiltration of hazardous GMOs (genetically modified organisms) into seed crops and animal feed."  Monsanto has patenting rights over some agricultural seed engineered from the DNA of different species of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes.


Organizers contend that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.  "Monsanto's products are harmful to people and the planet" said Melbourne's March Against Monsanto Facebook Host and organizer Jill Allen.
 

The Melbourne march was held at the Melbourne City Hall on Saturday.
