On December 12, 2012, the grassroots organization GMO Free CT held a rally in Minuteman Park across from the Connecticut State Legislature in Hartford to build support for legislation to require labeling of food containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
This legislation would give consumers a choice when deciding what to feed their families. Today, without a labeling law, potentially hazardous GMOs are being introduced into the American food supply.
Over 60 countries around the world have banned GMOs, but in the US, consumers do not currently have the ability to make informed decisions about the food they eat.
