This – Join farmers and free citizens around the world in the March to Stop Monsanto!
What an incredible difference a year makes. Last year at this time, Congress had just passed the Monsanto Protection Act and it was signed into law by President Obama on March 26, 2013. Six months later, after hundreds of thousands of phone calls and emails by people like you, Congress repealed the Monsanto Protection Act as a direct result of your actions.
Today, on the eve of the second annual March Against Monsanto, farmers and activists are celebrating recent victories in Vermont, where the 1st no-strings-attached GMO labeling bill was signed into law by Governor Shumlin.

Today, Food Democracy Now! is calling on you to join the global March Against Monsanto in an effort to stand up for our democratic rights and protect the planet from Monsanto’s influence.
Why we’re marching: To Stop the Continued Corruption of Our Democracy, the Poisoning of Our Environment, the Loss of Biodiversity and the Continued Assault on the Basic Rights of Farmers and Citizens Around the World.
The problem with Monsanto is not just their corrosive lobbying practices, but the fact that the products they produce, genetically engineered foods and chemical weedkillers, are in more than 75% of the processed foods that we eat and feed our families everyday.
In terms of corruption and consumption, Monsanto’s reach is global. And it must be stopped!
