  • BELOW:  Links to anti-GMO groups, centring around MAM (March Against Monsanto).  Emphasis on Canadian groups.  Scroll down to CANADA.
  • Most are facebook groups, some are blogs (you don’t have to be on facebook).  If the link is facebook, you can tell from the URL.  For access to a F/B group if you aren’t on F/B:  ask a friend who is.
  • Place names in blue have had a MAM prior to 2015, but appear to be inactive now.
  • Please use the “Comments” at the bottom to let me know if there are corrections / additions.   Thanks.
  • “Save the Bees” groups are closely related to the Marches Against Monsanto.  I have not attempted to represent them in this listing.  Sorry!   Maybe I will have time later.
  • There are tons of organics groups, too.   They are not represented in this list.

Can’t find the community you are looking for?

  • Try searching Facebook for “March Against Monsanto” and your place name.
  • The “events” tab for the official MAM website lists Canadian MAM’s under “North America.  (In the beginning the Official site had trouble keeping up with Canada, which is why I started this listing.)

The number of countries that now have MAM’s has grown incredibly!   (I  went to the official site today, after a long absence.)

we have the event page, the like page and the community page.  There’s three, and there’s about to be a blog  —  well, blog/website.

Organizer Lili explains (Mar 2014):

Please, LIKE our public page and post there. The posts here often go unnoticed for more than a few days, as we are busy planning the March and keeping our public social media as up to date as possible. When you post to the (Like) page, we will share your posts!  The like page is also where most of the updates regarding the March, and calls to action, will be.

A big THANK YOU for all your support and we look forward to seeing you at the March on May 24th!
