Puerto Rico demo against Monsanto

Hundreds Demonstrate Against Monsanto 

PONCE, Puerto Rico – About a thousand people from some 50 organizations marched Saturday from the Ponce campus of the University of Puerto Rico to the Plaza Las Delicias, protesting the presence of agrochemical and biotech company Monsanto in Puerto Rico.
Among the protesters was a group of doctors headed by the president of the Physicians-Surgeons Association, Víctor Ramos, who claimed he received countless emails persuading him not to attend the march.
“Up until yesterday, I was getting emails to not come to the march,” said Ramos, who added that substances such as glyphosate, a herbicide, are harmful despite Environmental Protection Agency reports to the contrary of what the World Health Organization has pointed out.
