(NaturalNews) The stakes have been raised in the fight for food sovereignty with the recent announcement of a nationwide boycott against Monsanto stock. This Friday, May 9, Food Democracy Now!, in conjunction with Natural News, the Cornucopia Institute and many others, is holding a National Day of Action at Fidelity offices all across the country to hit Monsanto where it hurts -- in the pocketbook.

The campaign was first launched several weeks ago and was immediately met with resounding support, leading into a national day of mass protests and stock dumping to take place this Friday in major cities all across the country. Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles will all hold official rallies, and if your town or city has a Fidelity office, you, too, can organize a local protest there as well.

"This coming Friday, May 9th we're having flash mob protests in select cities across the U.S. at Fidelity Investment offices to let them know that we're serious about dumping Monsanto's toxic assets," reads a Food Democracy Now! announcement. "Fidelity alone owns more than $3.2 billion in Monsanto stock. In total, Fidelity manages more than $4.6 trillion in assets and more than 20 million customers in the U.S. -- Are you one of them?"

Your mutual funds or 401K could include Monsanto stock

Most of our readers would probably say in good conscience that they already don't invest in Monsanto and that this boycott doesn't apply to them. But if you have an investment portfolio that includes mutual funds or if you have a pension fund or a 401K, you could be financially supporting Monsanto without even realizing it.

"Already, the phone lines at Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street have been ringing off the hook and thousands of you have reported calling your financial advisors and discovering that you inadvertently owned shares of Monsanto's stock that were hiding in your mutual funds, 401K or pension funds," adds Food Democracy Now!. "Unfortunately, if you have a retirement fund, 401K or mutual funds you could be profiting from Monsanto's toxic products."

Join the movement this Friday, May 9

The biotechnology industry is obviously a powerful lobby, as evidenced by numerous defeats in recent years of efforts to simply label genetically modified organisms (GMOs) at the retail level. So it is time to take a more aggressive approach by targeting the heart of the beast, the financial lifeblood that fuels its global agenda.

"Rather than simply support mandatory labeling of GMOs in the United States, Monsanto has willfully ignored the will of the American people (90% of whom support GMO labeling) and spent more than $13 million dollars to defeat labeling initiatives," explains a form letter available for you to send to those in charge at Fidelity, Vanguard, and State Street, urging them to divest of Monsanto stock:

Beginning at 3 pm EST on Friday, May 9, protesters all across the country will turn up the heat on Monsanto by pushing for a mass divestment of the company's stock. Official invite events for the protests in major cities are accessible via Facebook, or your can create your own at the National Day of Action page:
