About 50 protesters, on the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the “Occupy” movement, were in front of a Monsanto plant in Davis this morning, saying they want to shut down the local office of the multinational biotechnology company.

In March, protesters staged a similar protest. At that time, the Missouri-based company decided not to open its Davis office and did not make anyone available for comment.

Davis police were monitoring the situation about 7 a.m. today as protesters sat, stood and paced outside Monsanto. Demonstrators had one driveway to the Monsanto complex partially blocked with yellow caution tape.

Protesters carried signs that said “Occupy will bring Monsanto to its knees” and “Genetic Contamination is forever.” Some of the protesters wore costumes resembling hazardous material protective gear.

Steven Payan, representing Occupy Woodland, in a news release accused the company of “mass pollution to environment.”

Protesters said the effort is in conjunction with other “shut down” Monsanto demonstrations worldwide.
