Anti-Monsanto Protestors Make It Rain in the Senate
Anti-Monsanto protesters appeared in the Senate gallery today to speak out against flawed food label legislation by making it rain in the Senate.
As the Senate held a procedural vote on the legislation, one protester shouted something about Monsanto and they dropped a bunch of money on the floor below them.
The Senate called for order and multiple protestors spoke out to decry Monsanto and call out senators for taking money from Monsanto.
By the way, in case you’re wondering why protesters showed up to speak out, this might be a clue:
The Senate is voting on a very bad piece of Monsanto-backed legislation today. Text GMO to 82623 to oppose it. pic.twitter.com/21yiDd5zpc
