Denver activists will participate in a global protest Saturday March 24, 2014, during the March Against Monsanto 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at City of Cuernavaca Park, 3304 Rockmont Dr.

The local event is also going under the name Save the Bees and Butterflies Festival. On Facebook, more than 1,300 people indicated that they would attend the Denver rally. Coloradans are also expected to march in Boulder, Longmont, Loveland, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Vail Valley and Durango.

Denver is one of more than 400 cities to join the protest in 52 countries on six continents. In the United States, 47 states are taking part. They are calling for a permanent boycott of Genetically Modified Organisms and allegedly harmful agrochemicals.

The march website calls the event a “global call to action” aimed at informing the public, questioning the long-term health risks of GMOs and demanding the labeling of GMO products allowing consumers to make their own informed decisions.
