Focus:Consumer Rights
Action Request:Petition
Location:United States

 PLEASE, Take Action -- This is URGENT !


Petition: Pre-written Letter to Senators/House Reps:

OPPOSE 'NAIS' NOW! We have less than two weeks to stop the take over of farms & ranches. We need to rally people immediately. Tell Congress 

Don't let this poster become obsolete - Defend our freedom to choose organic food - Oppose legislation to end organic farming !

More Information on the following post:

Monsanto Bills Being Rushed Through Congress, Set to Destroy Organic Farming

   

We are talking about the take over of the US food supply by industrial forces and the contamination and, thus, death of organic farming through stealth. 

Monsanto will be entering into the body of organic farming like a disease and morphing organic farms into industrial facilities, the farmer being forced to "treat" the land with chemicals and the animals with drugs, trapped into paying for what is unwanted, unsafe, unneeded, unconstitutional.


Everything green, healthy, anti-global warming, local, decent, environmental, community building, independent, free thing that organic farming is, we need. But the corruption of our government and politicians by Monsanto and especially the Clinton influence
on behalf of Monsanto, is bringing us horror.


Don't fail to scroll down & down , and then some more  (on Molly's post: Monsanto Bills Being Rushed Through Congress, Set to Destroy Organic Farming),
until you can click on these:
>Stop NAIS. Contact the Organic Consumers Association because they were right about Vilsack and we are seeing the result.

Couldn't get the following to fit on the Alert!

Some facts on the matter:
UN/FAO Now Promotes Organic Agriculture - The UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) has come out in favor of organic agriculture. Its report Organic Agriculture and Food Security explicitly states that organic agriculture can address local and global food security challenges. more



UN/FAO Urges Protection of Livestock Diversity urging the international community to adopt a Global Plan of Action to stem erosion of the worlds farm animal diversity and protect the global food supply. Around 20 percent of the worlds breeds of cattle, goats, pigs, horses and poultry are currently at risk of extinction, according to FAOs State of the Worlds Animal Genetic Resources report, the first global assessment of livestock biodiversity and of the capacity of countries to manage their animal genetic resources. to report

The size of the letters on this alert shrank after posting and the Alice Waters quote, "Food and nourishment are right at the point where human rights and the environment intersect," disappeared in the posted version. What's going on?
