March Against MonsantoPublished on June, 43 2013
WILPF members joined in Marches Against Monsanto, which took place in 436 cities in 52 countries on May 25, 2013. WILPF Raging Grannies led a crowd of 500 protesters in original songs against genetically engineered foods in San Jose, CA. Around the country others participated as individuals or branches, braving the rain in Des Moines, IA, and turning out in Cleveland, OH; Missoula, MT; Sacramento; Monterey, San Francisco; and Davis, CA (where they blocked the employee entrance at Monsanto's headquarters). Children carried signs and dressed as bees and butterflies to call attention to the environmental threat posed by Roundup and other chemicals.
