There will be a rally Saturday afternoon in New York’s Ulster County against the world’s largest provider of genetically modified seeds. The March Against Monsanto in New Paltz is one of hundreds being held across the globe.  


NEW PALTZ – About 350 people took to the streets Saturday afternoon in New Paltz, marching downtown and briefly blocking traffic. They were the Hudson Valley contingent of March Against Monsanto, fighting for genetically modified organism (GMO) labeling of so-called artificially engineered "frankenfood."
