As part of the global March Against Monsanto, South Floridians came out in droves to rally support for mandatory labeling Saturday.

Across the world, more than 2 million protesters attended rallies in more than 400 cities, across 52 countries--a much larger turnout than initially expected.

In Miami more than 1,300 protesters showed up to the Omni/ Adrienne Arsht Metro station to march. State Senator Maria Sachs came out to speak.
