"Global Protests Target Monsanto, Genetically Modified Food"

"Organizers say 'March against Monsanto' protests held in 52 nations and 436 cities. Anti-Monsanto rallies sparked by a Facebook page in February."

"Los Angeles -- Protesters rallied in dozens of cities Saturday as part of a global protest against seed giant Monsanto and the genetically modified food it produces, organizers said.

Organizers said 'March Against Monsanto' protests were held in 52 countries and 436 cities, including Los Angeles where demonstrators waved signs that read 'Real Food 4 Real People' and 'Label GMOs, It's Our Right to Know.'

Genetically modified plants are grown from seeds that are engineered to resist insecticides and herbicides, add nutritional benefits or otherwise improve crop yields and increase the global food supply."
