Demonstrations are scheduled in 52 countries and over 500 cities to call for a boycott of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), harmful agro-chemicals, and a return to food sovereignty for small scale and independent food producers and consumers.
Photos, live-streams and tweets are pouring in across the social media sphere from rallies across the world.
The first “March Against Monsanto” took place last May and drew up to two million people.
