In her e-mail newsletter Eleanor Grant tells us:
Marches are planned in over 250 cities around the world, to take back our food supply from the growing use of genetically modified crops (GMOs).
Marchers will meet in front of the KITCHENER MARKET map at 2 pm, and peacefully walk to Kitchener City Hall, where great speakers are planned. WEAR A RED T-SHIRT – and bring a sign if you like! Contact <email@example.com>
For more info on the world-wide movement, please visit March Against Monsanto. If you click on the drop box in the “Home” bar, there’s a Links tab with informative articles on GMOs. For example, Der Spiegel on-line reports that German scientists are investigating suspected links between GMOs and Colony Collapse Disorder in bees – but can’t get funding to continue their research.
And view for free the feature-length documentary The World According to Monsanto (YouTube video, 1h49m)
