House and Senate will vote on bill to end organic gardening.. . and make it criminal to grow organic foods.

Senate Bill 875 and Senate Bill 425.

We need to get the provisions out that affect organic farming, or get a protection for organic gardeners and farmers into it.

A call to your representatives both Senate and House will help.
Food Safety Modernization Act (HR 875): Criminalization of Organic Farms
 
Bills are:
House H.R. 875
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-875

Senate S 425
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-425

There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the next 2 weeks 
before people realize what is happening.
 
Main backer and lobbyist is (guess who) Monsanto
 
Bill will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers
and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency
to "make sure there is no danger to the public food supply".

This will include backyard gardens that grow food only for a family
and not for sales.

THIS IS DICTATORSHIP in any way you look at it.
 
If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds
but only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases in humans.

There is a video on the subject.

The name on this outrageous food plan is
Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

(Really makes it sound like the feds are trying protect us. LIES )
 
Let me be crystal clear here......
This has NOTHING to do with food safety.
This is only about TOTAL CONTROL by the feds in our lives.
 
Get on that phone Monday and burn up the wires.
Get anyone else you can to do the same thing.

The House and Senate WILL pass this
if they are not massively threatened with loss of their position.
They only fear your voice and your vote.
