On Oct. 12, activists around the world will stage a series of coordinated protests against the St. Louis-based seed giant Monsanto Co., calling for the permanent boycott of genetically modified organisms.

Critics have taken issue with Monsanto's development of GMO seeds as well as its business practices, while the company has maintained that it stands by its products and respects people's rights to express their opinions on the subject.

Details of the Venice march are pending. For more information, go to the March Against Monsanto website.
