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 Action1. 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. ~
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.
