Monsanto produces genetically modified seeds and the cancer-linked herbicide Roundup. Protesters are calling for GMO labelling on food products containing genetically modified ingredients.

About 30 people took part in the protest in Chilliwack, and around the world people gathered in 38 countries and more than 425 cities.
