There's going to be another 'March Against Monsanto' on the Isle of Man on Saturday the 12th of October. Here's the text from the events facebook page:
Following on from the great gathering we had on May 25th 2013 (the first global March Against Monsanto, in which the Isle of Man enthusiastically took part), we plan to be just as wholehearted in our support of the next march.
This event comes hard up against World Food Day, and there couldn't be a more appropriate time to focus on all of these differing factors
GM foods and their devastating consequences on both the environment and those that consume them.
Unsafe farming practices, including monocultures and destruction of the soil.
The manipulation of laws at EU and US levels (Plant Reproductive Materials law anyone? attempts at patenting wild plants?).
The use of damaging herbicides and pesticides and the hijacking of our food system the world over.
The march is starting outside the Oxfam shop at 2pm and you can find out more here:
And if you want to know why this is important, here's a recent video by James Corbett dismantling five of the major myths perpetuated by the GMO companies
