March Against Monsanto May 20, 2017
On May 20, 2017, activists in 300 cities on six continents will participate in the sixth annual International March Against Monsanto.
Since last year’s march, there’s been no shortage of reports implicating Monsanto in everything from colluding with EPA officials to bury the truth about Roundup’s health risks, to influencing university scientists to write favorable reports about Roundup and glyphosate.
In the past year, Monsanto has been hit with multiple lawsuits, including those filed on behalf of more than 800 people who have been diagnosed (or whose family members have been diagnosed) with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after being exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup.
In April, a panel of five International Monsanto Tribunal judges slammed Monsanto over violations of international human rights.
As citizens and consumers, we must continue to stand up to Monsanto and other corporate criminals, But even as we resist the corporate takeover of our government and regulatory agencies, we must also talk about solutions—including how we can regenerate everything from our health to our economies and communities, by building a new Regeneration Movement.
That message—Resist and Regenerate—is the message we hope you’ll bring to your local March Against Monsanto this year.
