The initial march took place on May 25, 2013. The number of protesters who took part is uncertain; figures of "hundreds of thousands" and the organizers' estimate of "two million"  were variously cited. Events took place in between 330  and 436  cities around the world, mostly in the United States.   Many protests occurred in Southern California, and some participants carried signs expressing support for mandatory labeling of GMOs that read "Label GMOs, It's Our Right to Know", and "Real Food 4 Real People".  Canal said that the movement would continue its "anti-GMO cause" beyond the initial event.  Further marches occurred in October 2013 and in May 2014 and 2015. The protests were reported by news outlets including ABC News ,  the Associated Press ,  The Washington Post ,  The Los Angeles Times ,  USA Today ,  and CNN (in the United States), and Russia Today  and The Guardian  (outside the United States).

That is why nations like Peru, France, and Hungary are taking action against Monsanto and GMOs over legitimate health concerns.
