Organizers are gearing up for a Williams Lake March Against Monsanto event this weekend.

Organizer Erin Hitchcock said the march is to raise awareness about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and to request the federal government impose mandatory labelling on products containing GMOs.

The protest takes place at noon at 313 Oliver St. (Cariboo Growers). The march will head up Oliver Street toward Boitanio Mall, left on Seventh Avenue, and then left on Mart Street before meeting back at Cariboo Growers.

In a written statement, Monsanto said they are committed to having an open dialogue about food and agriculture and are proud of the work they do.
