Hundreds gather in midtown for march against Monsanto

By Taylor Higgins . CREATED Oct 13, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Another march against Monsanto was held around the world.

Saturday, hundreds of Tucsonans took to the streets to demand more information about what they're eating.

But first, they gathered at the Loft Cinema on Speedway to eat non-genetically modified food from a local farmers market.

Monsanto touts itself as a "sustainable agriculture company," but critics say its seeds destroy the soil and can cause serious health problems.

This is the second planned march against the agricultural giant.
