Protesters march against GMOs


CEDAR CITY — The downtown area of Main Street reverberated with shouts of “No, no GMOs” Saturday afternoon when approximately 100 people hoisted signs and marched in protest of Monsanto, a company being accused of attempting to control food supply through its creation and use of genetically modified organisms.
The Associated Press reported that organizers said “March Against Monsanto” protests were held in 52 countries and 436 cities around the world Saturday, including two in Southern Utah.
Along with the march in Cedar City, one was held in Washington City, with 60 people taking part.
Carin Miller, one of the organizers of the Cedar City event, said the protest was directed at Monsanto because it produces the majority of genetically modified organisms in the United States food supply.
