A crowd in Bethlehem on Saturday joined activists around the world for a 'March Against Monsanto,' calling for the permanent boycott of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and other agricultural chemicals.

Marches occurred on six continents, in 52 countries, with events in more than 400 cities. In the United States, marches were held in 47 states. 

A comprehensive list of marches can be found at www.march-against-monsanto.com.

Tami Monroe Canal, founder of March Against Monsanto (MAM), was inspired to start the movement to protect her two daughters.

“Monsanto’s predatory business and corporate agricultural practices threatens their generation’s health, fertility and longevity. MAM supports a sustainable food production system. We must act now to stop GMOs and harmful pesticides," Canal was quoted as saying in a press release.
