A little girl yells into a megaphone outside the U.S. district courthouse during the “March Against Monsanto” protest opposing genetically modified food in downtown Las Vegas, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013.

Angie Morelli, an organizer of the March Against Monsanto, which drew some 600 people Saturday morning to downtown Las Vegas, is being interviewed live on the Huffington Post today.

Morelli said she will talk about what’s happening in Las Vegas and the reason so many people around the world marched Saturday against genetically modified organisms, known as GMOs.

The interview is scheduled for 9:15 a.m.

Morelli also started the Corn and Currency Revolt over the summer. She and supporters sent dollar bills to members of Congress, asking for government action related to GMOs, including disclosures on food labels.
