Tens of thousands march worldwide against Monsanto and GM crops
The Guardian (May 24 2015): The third annual March Against Monsanto – begun by the Occupy movement – was held in around 400 cities in more than 40 countries from the Americas to Africa and Europe.
About 2,500 people staged anti-Monsanto protests in the Swiss cities of Basel and Morges, where the company has its headquarters for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Up to 3,000 protesters, rallied by environmental organisations including Greenpeace and anti-capitalist group Stop TAFTA, gathered in Paris, with Monsanto’s market-leading herbicide Roundup the main targets of protesters’ anger.
The controversial product’s main ingredient was recently classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” by the World Health Organisation.
“Looking for mass suicide? Go for Roundup,” read one placard at another French protest in the western city of Rennes.
