This is Mizan ThePoet, a positive conscious spoken word artist from London. I’m just writing this to let you know that the protest will still go ahead, I have a provisional route but will finalise everything hopefully by the end of the week
12pm: Meet at Charing Cross tube station
From there I suppose we can walk it to Richmond Terrace for 1pm. The purpose of this is for people to engage with the public and hand out leaflets.
Just to be clear, I said walk it to Richmond terrace as I couldnt get the required approval from westminster council to march.
Protest Start: 1pm
Location: Richmond Terrace
I’m arranging speakers and entertainers aswell
Will keep you guys updated regularly
Thank you for your patience

Google did not like me uploading Richmond Terrace and reverted to Richmond Terrace in the US.
GMOs are not adequately monitored to ensure public safety. Long term, independent, peer reviewed studies were not conducted before GMOs were introduced for human or animal consumption.
In the USA, the revolving door between Monsanto employees, government positions, and regulatory authorities has led to key Monsanto figures occupying positions of power at the FDA and EPA. Monsanto has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to obstruct all labeling attempts; they also suppress any research containing results not in their favor.
The scientifically established health risks include, but are not limited to: organ damage, sterility, infant mortality, birth defects, auto-immune conditions, allergies and increased cancer risks. GMOs have been partially banned by Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Madeira, New Zealand, Peru, South America, Russia, France, Switzerland and Costa Rico, and are currently labelled in 62 countries. Despite this, factory farm animals throughout the world are still fed GMOs.

The African Centre for Biosafety (ACB) lodged a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) following an advertisement on Radio 702 by Monsanto wherein Monsanto claims that GM crops are safe and sustainable.
GMO to save the starving world population?? Just look at how much food we waste in real time…
