GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) - The third annual March against Monsanto protest is taking place in cities around the world Saturday.
That includes Grand Rapids where about 50 people marched at Rosa Parks Circle. The activists say they are highlighting the monopoly the GMO giant has in controlling the food supply.
Monsanto's herbicide Round-Up was the main target of protesters.
"We don't want this in our food, we don't want cancerous products on the market 80% of food in the food industry is GMO now and that's in large part due to Monsanto," says Tony Geren an organizer.
Round up's main ingredient was recently classified as "probably carcinogenic to humans" by the World Health Organization.
