The purpose of this march was to raise awareness of the dangers of Round up resistant crops; a form of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO). The dangers affect human health and the environment. Another purpose was to draw attention to Monsanto which is the largest producer of Round Up resistant crops which are banned in every country except the US and Canada.
