LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two thousand people are expected to turn out and march in favor of a GMO labeling bill on Kauai this weekend.

The event, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Sunday at Vidinha Stadium, is being called the "Mana March." The walk will end at the historic county building.

The controversial Bill 2491 calls for GMO labeling and a pesticide buffer zone.

The Kauai County Council will take up the bill on Monday.
