CFN – There were demonstrations organized and attended, worldwide this past Saturday, May 25th. I attended the event on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. People are concerned about having the food that fuels their bodies and that of their loved ones, mutated,
morphed into something which will supposedly grow bigger, last longer, withstand chemicals and the possible onslaught of insect predators which may attempt to eat it. The concern is that these Franken-foods will negatively affect our own bodies and our natural environments in ways we still do not understand due to the lack of testing and history of these harvests.
Cutting of Rainforests, poisoning of our drinking water to the decline of our Wild Salmon populations and Bee Colonies are being labelled as side effects of Genetically Modifies Organisms. Some people are insisting that we totally eliminate genetically modified organisms from our world while others would be very happy with an outcome that legislates GMO labelling of production food so that the consumer can or not make purchase decisions based on the ingredients of the item to be purchased.
Demonstrations for seed sovereignty and GMO labelling and marches against Monsanto, an organization known worldwide for its GMO products, will be regular news in the days ahead. Future marches are already on the calendar and work continues so that the future maintains each person’s right to grow their own food and to know the vital elements (whether the product contains GMO ingredients) contained within.
