Occupy Protestors Show Frustrations over Genetically Modified Foods - KTXL

DAVISâ€"

About 60 Occupy Sacramento, Woodland and Davis protesters gathered at the Monsanto Davis plant Monday morning to protest against the company exactly one year after the Occupy Movement began.

Monsanto is the leading producer of genetically engineered seeds and the protesters hope to let executives know they strongly oppose genetically modified food. They also hope to show support for Proposition 37, an initiative on the November 6th ballot that would require genetically modified foods to be labeled.

Davis Police are not saying if they will arrest people if Monsanto files a complaint, but say they will assess the situation and bring out more officers if necessary.

Protester Jonny Goh says he's willing to be arrested. Goh says it is "part of being American."

Approximately 200 people are expected to show up Monday at Monsanto located at 1920 5th Street.
