Photos: March Against Monsanto – Nanaimo

By Kim Goldberg

DSCN3130 (18b,15c,x50)Here are my Nanaimo photos from today’s worldwide  March Against Monsanto (October 12, 2013).

Local marchers arrived at Maffeo Sutton Park on Nanaimo’s waterfront at 2:00 pm where various speakers presented information on the risks of food made from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) such as Monsanto’s RoundUp-Ready corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets.

Take Action

1. Demand mandatory labeling of GMO products.
2. Ask your grocer to provide labeled shelf areas for non-GMO products.
3. Demand that GMO companies release their studies and allow independent verification of the results.

Public Film

On Wednesday, October 16 (2013) there will be a public screening of the documentary film  King Corn in Nanaimo at 7:00 pm at Pacific Gardens Co-Housing, 347 7th Street.
