A protest was held Wednesday at a Providence grocery store. People were demanding a ban on antibiotics used at factory farms.

The group, Food and Water Watch is calling on the Providence City Council to support a resolution that would call on Rhode Island lawmakers in Washington to put a stop to the injection of these antibiotics into animals.

City Councilmen Seth Yurdin is sponsoring the resolution.

If it passes he says Providence would be the first city in the country to pass a resolution like this.
