While I generally believe marches and demonstrations aren't as effective as voting with your dollars by not supporting companies financially so they become bankrupt and out of business. In this case Monsanto doesn't seem to be going away. I support this march and want to shed light on this subject. I believe companies need to be legislated to consider people's lives and health over profits of a company. The trend toward GMO's is a scary one with the results that will be permanent in the future and nobody really knows what the hard effects will be on the health of the world. Independent farmers who want to do the right thing and produce organic fruits and vegetables without being forced out of business or being swallowed up... no pun intended by Monsanto and subsidiaries.
The one way I can support this cause to inform people about what Monsanto really does is to use this blog to inform people.
IN TORONTO THE MARCH WILL TAKE PLACE STARTING AT 2 PM @ St. JAMES PARK ON KING STREET.

I couldn't make it to the rally today because of the Elevator strike.. that's another story.
But here's a list of the companies connected to Monsanto.
