Hundreds of thousands across the US joined the worldwide rally against biotech giant Monsanto and genetically engineered crops. It comes shortly after the Senate turned down a bill that would allow states to require the labeling of GM foods.

Organizers of the major rally that swept through dozens of nations around the globe on Saturday, urge a repeal of the so-called Monsanto Protection Act, and call for a boycott of Monsanto products.

Participants in the March Against Monsanto were also demanding the right to know what they’re paying for and what their children eat. The protesters called for labeling of GM foods, which they say could pose a danger to human health, and demand further scientific research of such products.

RT covers the protest which is getting a mainstream media blackout, with RT’s Anastasia Churkina – who as at the heart of the protest march in New York City – one of dozens of American cities that are staging protests against Monsanto.

      I think our money speaks louder than any signs, but both could work together to change the way they do business or put them out of business.

    I attended the Anti-Monsanto rally and march in Perth Western Australia on Saturday afternoon. Was a fantastic day for it!

    Our dollar represents how we vote about our food. If all of us are willing to STOP buying MONSANTO products, we can cripple them financially. We should be eating organic food consistently. Period. Let’s put our money where are mouth is and stop giving it to the companies that are bent on poisoning us, our children and our pets.
