SOT, Maria Concilao, mother and food advocate (in English): "Well, it's corporate interests before the health of the planet and before the health of the people. We want to protect our pollinators, we want to protect our families. It's not fair that they are hiding; they are hiding behind their government, they have the government behind them, and they can do whatever they want. Everything is unregulated."

SCRIPT

Dozens of protesters from the group 'Bees Against Monsanto' demonstrated inside a Food Emporium grocery store near New York's Union Square on Saturday, taking over the produce section and reading a statement urging shoppers to not use pesticides or support companies like Monsanto. Store management forbade Ruptly from filming the event, and called police.

No arrests were made at the demonstration.
