Marching against GMO only shows how many people are ignorants and plain stupid.
"Growing cheap crops for the starving in Africa? No way! My ******* American freedom will not allow that!". Pathetic, nothing more.
Also, none of the artificially created organisms as of today are harmful in any way. Protein is protein for our body.
Just wanted to add something, thumbing down as I go.

maybe you should do a little research before you just go bashing everything in sight? they are not protesting that they are gmo specificaly, they are protesting for a plethora of reasons:
1. monsanto has been filing lawsuits against small farmers for using their GMO seed without premission (yes apperantly you can patent a seed) and running them into the ground with legal fees and many of these were simply caused by cross pollination, seeds that blew onto the property and took root without any knowledge, etc...
2. my personal favorite reason for hating monsanto would be the suicide gene, this lovely little creation will sprout once and only once, the next generation of seed is absolutely useless and will not thrive or even germinate. now can anyone tell me what happens when this lovely gene cross polinates into other plants in neighboring farms/landscapes? I'll just let you ponder on that and maybe you can do a little research while your your at it to see what other reasons people are against this before you start bashing everyone without having any clue whatsoever about what you are talking about.

i don't care if this makes me look like one of those tinfoilhat guys but they are doing nothing else than trying to take over the world by ruling the food/agricultural market

Its not the Modification they bitch about, its the fact that because they are hardier, roundup gets sprayed in higher quantities, causing more problems with pollution, human health, etc.

They've got a patent against other people using their seeds. Problem is that their seeds, in a way superseeds, grow rapidly and spread rapidly. This means if someone comes by a farm and that farm has monsanto crops they have to pay a ridiculous amount of money.

It's not the food - you do realise monsanto has us all pretty much trapped. Even farmer's are forced to use their seeds for fear of getting sued. Monsanto actually put a patent on seeds - yes, they patented ******* food. And that's just the beginning.

I wish it was just seeds. they patented the GENES. thats right. It doesn't even have to be thier seed. If the gene is in it, the farmers have to prove that they didn't steal it, which most can't. How can you prove a seed blowing in the wind?

Well, it would be great if they put good stuff in it, not dangerous bacteria.

It's not that they are marching against GMO (or at least not most of them), they're marching against the company Monsanto's use of GM crops. Their crops have been proven, with out a doubt, to significantly increase the risk of cancerous tumours developing in lab rats (I believe it was somewhere along the lines of 60%-70% developed tumours, usually multiple).

Despite repeated tests showing these dangers, the company put their product into produnction and up for sale to humans and for some reason, no one is doing anything about it.
