SALT LAKE CITY – For the third year, the International March against Monsanto hit the stairs of the Utah State Capitol and protesters rallied against the use of genetically modified organisms in food.
Those who attended the march said they believe everyone has the right to know what is used in the food they eat. Salt Lake City protesters said they’re just a fraction of the larger, international movement.
“We’re a part of a global protest happening all across the planet today, spanning six continents, 54 countries, and 455 cities,” founder Tami Canal said. “And we’re basically uniting to speak out against Monsanto’s predatory business practices, unethical patents, the government corruption that we’re witnessing with things like the Trans-Pacific Partnership being slipped in under the noses of the American people.”
Some protesters said they’d like to see changes in food labeling to clearly define which products in the supermarket contain GMOs. For more information bout the movement, click here.
