About 50 local residents gathered in downtown Tucson in solidarity with a world-wide protest against Monsanto on Saturday evening.

There were many children who joined the march to protest genetically modified foods.

Nadia Hagen, 52, dressed as a bee, said she likes to eat healthy and wanted to support the march against Monsanto. The protesters said they wanted the biotechnology company to stop using pesticides that kill bees.

They marched from Joel Valdez Main Library to the Sea of Glass Center for the Arts on 7th Street.
