Activists “Rally For The Right To Know” What’s In Their Food
Despite a wealth of scientific information that suggests genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are hazardous to the health of both people and animals, the United States government refuses to require food manufacturing companies to alert consumers to their presence with clear, truthful labeling.
The national Millions Against Monsanto campaign staff is gearing up for its October 2011 day of action, pledging to make it the biggest nationwide day of action on genetic engineering in US history.
But, Millions Against Monsanto activists, led by a trio of hard-working, un-funded, volunteer organizers, Trish Wright, Erica Gray and April Reeves, decided they couldn’t wait. They’re staging a demonstration at the White House this month, March 26, 2011, and they’re urging activists around the country to “Rally for the Right to Know” locally.
Events are planned all over the country…please do your best to join one and let the government know you demand the right to eat real food! (For the latest news, go to Rally for the Right to Know‘s Facebook page.):
