Protesters march at Monsanto shareholder meeting over GMO labeling
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Protesters plan to march on Tuesday outside the annual Monsanto shareholders meeting in Creve Coeur. They say that Monsanto’s genetically engineered foods pose health risks to humans.
For the first time, a shareholder will call for a vote on labeling of GMO’s or Genetically Modified Organisms. GMO’s have been banned in more than a dozen countries.
Monsanto officials say that the products help farmers produce more from their land while conserving resources like water and energy.
