Yachats residents marching against genetically modified foods and the companies involved with it

Yachats Commons

Yachats Commons

A group of Yachats residents are lining up at The Commons at noon Saturday to express their anger at the U.S. Senate which turned down a bill that would have required all foods have a label on them (or nearby) as to whether their makeup has been genetically modified. (GMO)

Frequently referred to as “Frankenfood,” emotions run high when many people talk about the issue which they claim begs the question of long-term effects of such modified food. The Federal Food and Drug Administration swears GMO foods are safe and are simply being improved to increase crop yields worldwide.

But a vocal band of Yachats residents more than beg to differ. They’re holding an anti-GMO march Saturday starting at 12 noon at the Commons. They will be expressing solidarity with identical marches across the country protesting what they call “bought and paid for members of Congress” voting the bidding of Monsanto and other companies that are pushing these products around the world.
