Activists to Target Chains in Protest of Genetically Engineered Food

SAN FRANCISCO - An activist group called the GE-Free Markets Coalition and regional anti-GE food groups are organizing "the National Day of Action" on June 8 as part of a multi-year campaign to get GE foods out of grocery stores. Food activists in 100 cities across the U.S., including Boston, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and Minneapolis, plan to protest in front of leading supermarket chains, including Safeway, Shaw's/Star Markets, Publix, Food Emporium and Food Lion.

Similar marketplace campaigns in Europe and Japan have forced GE foods off the market. Consumer and environmental groups are demanding that Safeway and other leading supermarket chains remove all GE food ingredients from their store brand products.
