TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) Protesters are at Edward Medard Park in Plant City today with a message, "Just Say 'No' to GMO's."
They oppose genetically modified plants, and, in particular, the role of the Monsanto Corporation. They say GMO's harm human health and the environment and argue there's a conflict of interest at the Food and Drug Adminstration, which is steered by ex-Monsanto execs. A similar rally will be held on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the USF's Marshall Center in Tampa.
These events are in preparation for the worldwide "Millions Against Monsanto March," to be held on Saturday, May 25.
