Nearly 1,200 people RSVP'd for the March Against Monsanto in Fort Worth on May 25. By our estimate, hundreds turned out to show their concern about genetically modified seeds used in agriculture and the increasing political power of giant GMO-seed producer Monsanto.
The parade of protestors appeared to span the length of Main Street, from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the Tarrant County Courthouse, across many city blocks.
Here are some of our favorites signs from the Fort Worth rally.
