Ocala, Florida — On Saturday, May 23, 2015, Marion County will unite with citizens from all over the world in protest of genetically modified foods (GMOs).
This year will mark the third annual “March Against Monsanto,” in which over 400 cities throughout the world hold demonstrations to raise public awareness and bring increasing political pressure to bear regarding Monsanto’s corporate farming and business practices and to fight for labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered and/or modified materials.
Event organizers said that this year’s March Against Monsanto event will be better than ever! The event will feature local and organic food vendors, speakers, kid’s activities, and workshops on growing food, permaculture, the importance of bees, composting, wood mulch gardening, and how to avoid GMOs more!
The goal is to give people the knowledge and tools they need to move away from the industrial food system that funds companies like Monsanto. Organizers hope to educate and inspire the community to take action and begin to create a sustainable, local food system, ultimately taking the food system back and removing it from of the hands of the corporations that currently control what people eat.
