Davis protest marks
one-year anniversary of Occupy
Occupy aims to shut down Monsanto in Davis
About 100 Occupy protesters blocked off the parking lot to Monsanto Corporation in Davis in an effort to shut down the chemical giant.
Members of the Occupy movement said they planned to mark the first year of the movement with more demonstration.
The protest, organized by Occupy Sacramento, Woodland and Davis groups, is one of nearly 100 demonstrations planned across the world in protest of the chemicals and mass pollution. It also marks one year of the movement.
Protesters carried signs, wore bio-hazard suits, and chanted “No GMO’s”, referring to genetically modified organisms.
Occupy held a similar protest at Monsanto in March.
The demonstration remained peaceful.
Davis police said they have brought in additional officers and have a contingency plan in place in case the protest escalates.
