On May 21, 2016, Houston, Texas stood in solidarity with tens of thousands of activists around the world for the "March Against Monsanto."
Monsanto is a biotechnology corporation known for owning highly controversial patents on seeds and for introducing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the world's food supply. They also produce Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. Roundup is a toxic herbicide that is widely distributed and sprayed on crops all over the world. Currently, the EPA and WHO are unable to agree on the threat of Glyphosate to public health.
