Challenging Monsanto: Over two million march the streets of 436 cities, 52 countries

http://rt.com/news/monsanto-gmo-protests-world-721/
Millions of activists around the world have rallied against Monsanto, the biotechnology giant for genetically engineering agriculture and food while suppressing negative scientific research.

Organized by the 'March Against Monsanto' movement, an estimated two million have taken part in the massive event on Saturday spanning six continents, 52 nations, and at least 48 US states.

“It was empowering and inspiring to see so many people, from different walks of life, put aside their differences and come together today,” said Tami Canal, founder and organizer of the global event.

“We will continue until Monsanto complies with consumer demand. They are poisoning our children, poisoning our planet,” she said. “If we don't act, who's going to?”


Also AP link up in LBN, but I thought people might miss it, and it's both important, highly succesful, and totally underreported in usual m€dia.
