Durban Residents March Against Monsanto
Durban was one of seven South African towns which joined the worldwide March Against Monsanto (#MAM) on Saturday, 21 May.
These symbolic marches targeted Monsanto and five similar multinational companies that currently control world food production.
Monsanto is at the forefront of pushing ‘genetically modified’ (GM) crops worldwide. The multinational is also infamous for peddling dangerous chemical products while downplaying their toxicity. These include Agent Orange (2,4D herbicide) used by the USA in the Vietnam War, the pesticide DDT and PCBs, which are now banned internationally.
