Egyptian activists take part in a global day of action against multinational agricultural corporation Monsanto and their distribution of genetically modified seeds
Egyptian activists join in a global day of action against multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation Monsanto.
The giant corporation produces and distributes genetically modified (GM) seeds around the world, along with the pesticides and fertilisers needed to help the seeds grow.
Their practices have drawn criticism from activists across the globe, and Egyptians took to the streets to condemn their influence on Egyptian agriculture and to raise street awareness about the dangers of GM foods.
