from eat drink better: The GMO Right2Know March is a 313 mile walk to the White House in support of labeling genetically engineered food.
Hundreds of people are expected to march part or all of the route to arrive at the White House on October 16 (Food Day) and demand genetically modified foods be labeled.
Elsewhere in the world, genetically engineered foods are labeled. Consumers in other countries have the freedom of choice that comes with knowing what is in their food.
The GMO Right2Know March is being spurred on by recent court decisions to approve genetically modified alfalfa to be grown without restrictions and to hold Bayer responsible for LibertyLink contamination of rice, the lawsuit by organic farmers and seed sellers against Monsanto, the growth of the U.S. organic industry to $28.6 billion in 2010, and the overwhelming interest in the Non-GMO Project.
