Florida Activists Join Global "March Against Monsanto"

COCOA BEACH, Florida -- Donning bee suits and Guy Fawkes masks associated with the Occupy movement, about 50 Brevard County activists joined in a worldwide "March Against Monsanto" at the corner of State Roads A1A and 520 on Saturday, October 12, 2013.


The movement against agriculture giant Monsanto highlights 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.


Local organizer Rachael Sadley said the best way to oppose GMOs is to buy organic. "That's how we have a vote - is with our money."


Activists contend that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility, irritable bowel syndrome, and birth defects.
