    There will be various protests regarding genetic engineering/modification throughout the u.s. on 3/26/11.
    The purpose of the protest is primarily to,

    1. Get all food products containing genetically engineered/modified organisms, labeled.

    2. Get mandatory FDA testing of genetically engineered/modified organisms before they are allowed to be used for human consumption.

    3. Get better regulations for those growing/keeping genetically engineered/modified organisms, to reduce the contamination of organic farms etc.

    If you wish to participate in the protest and want to find out where the nearest protest to you is, or you can not attend a protest but would like to sign petitions regarding labeling genetically engineered/modified foods etc. please click on these links for more information.
