Agribusiness mergers – a food system under corporate control – a call for consumer education, international and national action
Saturday 20 May 2017
Grosvenor Square, London at 2pm
The 6th international March Against Monsanto events will take place on Saturday 20 May 2017, with more than 300 cities on 6 continents participating.
Agribusiness mergers may lead to an unacceptable monopoly that would see three companies controlling around 70% of the world's agro-chemicals and more than 60% of commercial seeds.
The food movement must focus on building political power
March Against Monsanto London are hosting a peaceful static event in Grosvenor Square, London starting at 2pm. Please check Facebook for any changes and updates nearer the date. March Against Monsanto London share the views of many other individuals, consumer groups, farmers and NGOs concerned about food sovereignty issues, de-regulation of food safety standards and potentially unsatisfactory trade deals following the Brexit referendum.
Does the UK have the ability to stand up to corporate interests which are detrimental to consumer rights and the environment? Come and discuss these questions at this and similar events.
