Founder of March Against Monsanto, an international grassroots movement
against Monsanto corporation, a producer of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide and proven toxin.

Founder of March Against Monsanto, founded in response to the failure of California Proposition 37, a ballot initiative which would have required labeling food products made from GMOs. Advocates support mandatory labeling laws for food made from GMOs.  The initial march took place on May 25, 2013. Events took place in between 330 and 436 cities around the world, mostly in the United States. Many protests occurred in Southern California, and some participants carried signs expressing support for mandatory labeling of GMOs that read "Label GMOs, It's Our Right to Know", and "Real Food 4 Real People". Canal said that the movement would continue its "anti-GMO cause" beyond the initial event. Further marches have occurred annually in May, catapulting GMOs into a household term. www.march-against-monsanto.com
