Their demands are simple:

  • We have the right to know and want Genetically Modified food labeled.
  • We want factory farmed animal and Genetically Modified animal products labeled.
  • We want independent, transparent, long- ­term studies done on the safety of GMO’s for animals, plants and humans.
  • We want the organic industry protected from cross­ contamination and lawsuits to organic farmers from GM technology.

Who: A grassroots effort by consumers around the nation to demand labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Why: Despite a growing number of studies showing harm to health and the environment the FDA has declared GM foods “substantially equivalent” – no labeling required.

When: Saturday, March 26th.

Where: Look for your city location.
