This Saturday, Arran Stephens, President and Founder of Richmond based Nature’s Path Foods, will join thousands of Vancouverites in a peaceful march to express their opposition to Monsanto and take back their food sovereignty.
The Vancouver march is part of the international event on May 25, occurring in more than two hundred and fifty cities, to take a stand and raise awareness about genetically modified organisms (GMOs). There is a growing body of evidence indicating that genetically modified crops are not benign; they affect both our health and the environment. Monsanto is not only the largest supplier of
GMOs, they have a long history of blatant negligence for the environment and human rights.
Participants will wear red and gather to march against Monsanto. Local leaders of the GMO-Free movement, including Arran Stephens, will speak on the issue in advance of the march.
