Is opposition to Monsanto gaining momentum? It would certainly seem it from this past weekend. Via Yahoo! News:
Two million people marched in protest against seed giant Monsanto in hundreds of rallies across the U.S. and in over 50 other countries on Saturday.
“March Against Monsanto” protesters say they wanted to call attention to the dangers posed by genetically modified food and the food giants that produce it. Founder and organizer Tami Canal said protests were held in 436 cities in 52 countries.
The ‘March Against Monsanto’ movement began just a few months ago, when Canal created a Facebook page on Feb. 28 calling for a rally against the company’s practices. Together with Seattle blogger and activist Emilie Rensink and Nick Bernabe of TheAnti-Media.org, Canal worked with A-Revolt.org digital anarchy to promote international awareness of the event. She called the turnout “incredible,” and credited social media for being a vehicle for furthering opportunities for activism.
