Consumers to Return to Streets of Philadelphia in March Against Monsanto


WHAT: On Saturday, May 23rd, consumers, farmers, parents, children, and people from around the region will join in Philadelphia’s third annual March Against Monsanto. The marchers will simultaneously oppose the vision being advanced by biotechnology corporations like Monsanto, and support a sustainable food future, specifically calling for labeling of genetically engineered foods (‘GMOs’).


The show of force comes as advocates gear up to reintroduce state legislation in Harrisburg to require the labeling of GMO foods. Last year’s legislation was supported by over 70 members of the legislature, and marchers hoped to use the rally to garner even more support on the bill in the new legislative session.

WHO: Confirmed speakers for the event include:

Christina Pirello, host of PBS’s Christina Cooks

Owen Taylor, Farmer and Seed Keeper, Manager of William Woys Weaver seed collection

Jon McGoran, Author

Charmaine Rusin, Mother and musician

Zofia Hausman, GMO Free PA

Rania Campbell-Cobb, Urban Farmer and Farm Educator

Bob Pierson, Farm to City


WHEN: Saturday, May 23rd at Noon PM – 6 PM


WHERE: Thomas Payne Plaza

1401 John F Kennedy Blvd

Philadelphia, PA 19102



Photo Opp: This years march is expected to at least match last year’s attendance of 1,000 people. Following speakers, attendees will take to the street to march in support of GMO labeling!
