Hello Toronto friends and allies!

Thank you for joining the MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO - TORONTO on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013, in Queen’s Park!

The first MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO occurred May 25, 2013, with over two million people across the globe (and 2,000+ in Toronto) taking action against Monsanto. More importantly, this truly historic moment showed the world that we were a huge, strong, and concerned group united in reclaiming our food supply!

In conjunction with WORLD FOOD DAY (www.worldfooddaycanada.ca/) and
Dr. Vandana Shiva’s SEED & FOOD FREEDOM campaign (www.facebook.com/savetheseed), the Oct. 12 MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO is a global call to action aimed at informing the public and calling into question long-term health and environmental effects of genetically modified foods. If you’re new to the cause, welcome and don’t miss this empowering opportunity to raise your voice in solidarity with millions around the globe fighting the corporations who are threatening our farmers, our health, our children and our planet!

WHY WE MARCH?
- Boycott GMOs
- Demand GMO labeling
- End patents on seed
- Protect our food supply
- Support local farmers
- Promote organic solutions & a sustainable agriculture
- Expose the cronyism between big business & government
- Bring accountability to those responsible for the corruption
- Demand regulatory modernization of the Novel Foods Act
- Further scientific research on the health effects of GMOs
