May 25th, 2013 was the world wide protest against bio-tech giant, Monsanto. Over two million people from over 52 countries took to the streets to demand an end to genetically modified organism's, or GMO's, in their food...and at the very least to have GMO foods labeled. In Atlanta Georgia, about 650 people marched from Piedmont Park in Midtown, down the beltline, and stopped several times to listen to speakers and meet new allies. The rally and march was organized by local food advocates, the Food Supply Rescue Coalition. With Monsanto fighting against a GMO labeling bill in California, and now the recently passed "Monsanto Protection Act", people are beginning to demand accountability, labeling, and more organic food choices. But most of all, citizens are demanding that corporations like Monsanto stop taking over the very governmental agencies that are supposed to monitor, test, and ban or regulate their products. This film runs 24 minutes.

If there is to be a poster child for the "Evil Corporation", it would probably be Monsanto. A leader in genetically modified organisms, Monsanto's long term strategy would seem to be controlling the food supply from seed to plate. But now people are waking up to the consequences of having corporate control of the food chain and what we eat and grow. Both farmers and food buyers are speaking out against Monsanto's practices, and demanding an end to GMO's in the food supply, and at the very least the labeling of products containing GMO's. September 17th, 2012 was the international day of action against Monsanto and GMO's. This film shows part of the Atlanta action lead by the Food Supply Rescue Coalition. It runs 37 minutes.
